Praise for Healing: The Path to Freedom: “What Michael has apparently discovered and teaches is that how we interact with life, moment by moment, particularly our feeling experience, is visibly at the core of everything. From the broken things to the extraordinary things, it is nowhere else but the place that no one thinks to look—literally in ourselves. The remarkable, almost unique aspect of Michael’s work is that everything he does and teaches points you back to the truth of your own tangible experience. If you want to entertain the possibility of real change, this can be an excellent place to do it. If you seek to preserve your status quo, well, this may not be the place. The work is not easy, though it is simple and clear. It’s also not necessarily a quick fix, though some experience rapid results. Expect change and be prepared to see that life is not (only) what you thought it was. In today’s increasingly small world, sticking one’s head in the sand is becoming a less and less viable option as hiding places become hard to find. Michael’s work is all about strongly engaging life and finding the only reliable refuge: your true self.” — Marc Glassgold

Steps on the Path to Englightenment: The Foundation Practices marks the first volume of a much-anticipated, comprehensive commentary on the Lamrim Chenmo by the renowned Buddhist scholar, Geshe Sopa. This landmark commentary on what is perhaps the most elegant Tibetan presentation of the Buddhist path offers a detailed overview of Buddhist philosophy, especially invaluable to those wanting to enact the wisdom of the Buddha in their lives. In the Lamrim Chenmo, Tsongkhapa explains the path in terms of the three levels of practitioners: those of small capacity who seek happiness in future lives, those of medium capacity who seek liberation from the cycle of suffering, and those of great capacity who seek full enlightenment in order to benefit all beings. This volume covers the topics common to the first level: Tsongkhapa's explanations of the role of the teacher, his exhortation to take the essence of human existence, the contemplation of death and future lives, and going for the refuge. Given his vast knowledge and his experience in both Tibetan and Western contexts, Geshe Sopa is the ideal commentator of this work for the modern student of Tibetan Buddhism.

Mind, Brain and the Path to Happiness presents a contemporary account of traditional Buddhist mind training and the pursuit of wellbeing and happiness in the context of the latest research in psychology and the neuroscience of meditation. Following the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of Dzogchen, the book guides the reader through the gradual steps in transformation of the practitioner’s mind and brain on the path to advanced states of balance, genuine happiness and wellbeing. Dusana Dorjee explains how the mind training is grounded in philosophical and experiential exploration of the notions of happiness and human potential, and how it refines attention skills and cultivates emotional balance in training of mindfulness, meta-awareness and development of healthy emotions. The book outlines how the practitioner can explore subtle aspects of conscious experience in order to recognize the nature of the mind and reality. At each of the steps on the path the book provides novel insights into similarities and differences between Buddhist accounts and current psychological and neuroscientific theories and evidence. Throughout the book the author skilfully combines Buddhist psychology and Western scientific research with examples of meditation practices, highlighting the ultimately practical nature of Buddhist mind training. Mind, Brain and the Path to Happiness is an important book for health professionals and educators who teach or apply mindfulness and meditation-based techniques in their work, as well as for researchers and students investigating these techniques both in a clinical context and in the emerging field of contemplative science.

The mind is a powerful ally for us to live in this world. However given absolute control of our lives, it becomes a silent tyrant.Indeed, there is no master more ruthless, no jungle more wild, and no fire more fierce and consuming than the reactive mind. Therefore the battlefield of the mind is the only one we have to conquer, the only prison we have to walk out of, and then we can realize we have always been free. Freedom is the true nature of our being. This book is a collection of Short Stories, Essays and Exercises which the author wrote over the years as a record of observations on her own journey towards finding the authentic Self.The author wishes to inspire the readers into self inquiry by incorporating her experiences in all the work and distilling those experiences for everyone to try.It is meant to be light reading rather than a textbook."The greatest politeness is free of all formality,perfect conduct is free of concern,perfect wisdom is unplanned,perfect love is without demonstrations,perfect sincerity offers no guarantee." ~The way of Chuang Tzu by Thomas Merton

The third volume of the 15th-century spiritual classic that condenses Buddhist teachings into one easy-to-follow meditation manual The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (Tib. Lam rim chen mo) is one of the brightest jewels in the world’s treasury of sacred literature. The author, Tsong-kha-pa, completed it in 1402, and it soon became one of the most renowned works of spiritual practice and philosophy in the world of Tibetan Buddhism. Because it condenses all the exoteric sūtra scriptures into a meditation manual that is easy to understand, scholars and practitioners rely on its authoritative presentation as a gateway that leads to a full understanding of the Buddha’s teachings. Tsong-kha-pa took great pains to base his insights on classical Indian Buddhist literature, illustrating his points with classical citations as well as with sayings of the masters of the earlier Kadampa tradition. In this way the text demonstrates clearly how Tibetan Buddhism carefully preserved and developed the Indian Buddhist traditions. This first of three volumes covers all the practices that are prerequisite for developing the spirit of enlightenment (bodhicitta).

This book, The Stairway To Freedom, was dictated from the spirit world by The Great White Brotherhood and is a complete primer of esoteric knowledge covering virtually every aspect of a human being’s development whilst here in incarnation and also will see ones life into in the spiritual realms as one progresses towards God. It covers a large gamut of seemingly unrelated topics covering: • Sexuality, • The birth process, • How life develops and is controlled by archangels, • What is God and what God’s Power is, • What our auras are, • How we can develop spirituality, • Diet, • Organising one’s daily routine and a host of other topics. The book cleverly weaves all these, apparently, disparate elements into a cohesive whole so that the student can have a firm grasp on the way that life operates whilst incarnate here on Earth and will help guide one through that life, and also what awaits someone when this incarnation is finished and they return to their true home, the spirit realms. There are also a couple of prayers that were dictated from the spirit world, some guided meditations and, lastly, a number of questions and answers that were asked of the Great White Brotherhood on a variety of topics. Although it is a book on spirituality, it offers a lot of practical information relevant to the problems that people face in their daily lives. The Brotherhood all had incarnations here on Earth at some stage and so have first hand knowledge of the difficulties that we face. It is not a remote, academic book just dealing with what is God. It is written in simple, if precise, language and all people will find that they can connect to the information presented in the various chapters. As a last point, a great deal of love was put in by the Great White Brotherhood to give us this book and a great deal of hard work was put in by various people to present this to you. It is hoped that the information will change your life.
