As a free-spirited, independent woman, Bronnie Ware was used to donning a variety of hats: singer, songwriter, author, speaker, traveler, and adventurer. And as her soul would have it in her mid-forties, she felt the urge to add one more, mother. Ware, author of The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, had learned many lessons as a palliative-care giver, and she began to absorb even more from the opposite end of the spectrum as a giver of life. Only a few moments into motherhood, however, Ware’s body had a different idea, when chronic crippling pain from an auto-immune disease took hold. In this inspiring memoir, Ware reminds us that whether life’s lessons arrive through illness, trauma, or any other unexpected upheaval, life really does love us. By finding the courage to confront her upper limits, surrender to life’s blessings, and have gratitude every step of the way, Ware discovered how to bloom in a field of formidable challenges.

Following the success of their first book "The Leader, The Teacher, & You", which won the Singapore Literature Book Prize in the Non-Fiction Category in 2014, Siong Guan and Joanne H Lim have collaborated again to produce their new book "Winning with Honour: In Relationships, Family, Organisations, Leadership, and Life". The book draws upon wisdom from history, geography, culture, religion, the wisdom of the ancients, as well as writings and examples from all over the world. The book posits that there is a universality in the message of Honour that can prove valuable to all who would care to reflect on how to sustain success in one's life, family, community, organisation and/or nation. The purpose of this book is to invite you to think about what winning in life actually means, and seeks to raise consciousness about the virtue of Honour in our lives, particularly in the two dimensions of "Honouring Our Word" and "Honouring Each Other". Segmented into 10 parts and drawing from a collection of wisdom literature, the book posits that Honour does not just explain Singapore's journey from Third World Economy to First World Economy in a generation, but is an essential virtue that undergirds purposefulness in life, happiness in family, stability in society, advantage in business, success in leadership, and security in the nation. Written in a unique format that is accessible to people from all walks of life, the book seeks to showcase what is possible if imagination and human enterprise are coupled with honour.

All too often, when we find ourselves at a crossroads, the conventional ways of understanding where we are can fall short of the mark. Intuitively, we know we need something more. Sacred astrology teaches that there are several distinct rites of passage that can show up as a psychospiritual crisis characterized by intense challenge and confusion. We are betwixt and between—no longer who we used to be, but not yet who we are becoming. However, these powerful thresholds are where the real magic of our lives happens. They usually coincide with significant turning points that lead us toward our life's unique purpose. Learn how myth, folklore and story can be a source of guidance in difficult times. Illuminate the archetypal dimensions of your own story and re-enchant your life. Learn when to expect the crossroad times throughout your life so you can make peace with the past, navigate the present, and create a more purposeful future. Discover the keys to self realization and step into alignment with who you’re becoming. Create a self-care tool kit for the distinct issues that arise with each crossroads, and get clear about what you're calling in. Unlock new levels of self awareness through ritual, guided meditation, and journal reflections crafted specifically for each threshold. You will also learn how to support family, friends, coworkers, and clients who are going through difficult times with a transpersonal understanding of where they are and what they're going through. Having insight into what time it is in your life can be a lantern in the dark.
