12. The Secret of Perfect Vision How You Can Prevent and Reverse Nearsightedness (Large Print 16pt) - David De Angelis

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Author David De Angelis's search for a cure for nearsightedness was both professional and personal, since he suffered from the disease himself. An expert in muscular work dynamics, he discovered through extensive testing and an immersion in decades of scientific studies that working the extrinsic ocular muscles could preserve sight and re - educate the eyes toward better vision. He came to understand the importance of retinal defocus for transforming ocular refractive status. In this book, the author shares both the science and the ''secret'' - progressive retinal defocus technique - of how he was able to reverse his own myopia. The system's efficacy, he says, comes from the fact that it directly intervenes with the causes that generate myopia onset and development (overaccommodative/near - point stress). When adequately stimulated by the simple exercises presented in the book, ocular refractive capability leads to gradual strengthening of focusing capability and gradual decreasing of refractive error. Written in straight - forward language, and featuring an extensive section on the scientific research in this field, The Secret of Perfect Vision offers a proven program of healing to the millions of people afflicted with this condition.

13. Transformation Through Intimacy The Journey Toward Awakened Monogamy (Large Print 16pt) - Robert Augustus Masters

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £21.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Intimate relationship has long been viewed and lived as a lesser alternative to spiritual life. More recently, the need to integrate our spiritual and intimate lives, rather than maintaining separate spheres and relationships on autopilot, has become increasingly apparent. Given the high rates of infidelity and divorce, it would seem that the possibilities of freedom through intimacy have not been explored in much depth. Too often we pull away when relationships become difficult, missing out on the rewards of connecting more profoundly. The passage from immature to mature monogamy is not only a journey of ripening intimacy with a partner, but also a journey into and through zones of ourselves that may be very difficult to accept and integrate with the rest of our being. Transformation through Intimacy explores intimate relationships through a four-stage lens: me-centered, we-centered codependent, we-centered coindependent, and being-centered. Bringing his many years of experience as a psychotherapist and spiritual practitioner to the subject, Masters shows readers not only how to navigate the thickets of reactivity, conflict, shame, anger, fear, and doubt, but how to understand them in a new light so that a deeper level of relating to oneself and one s partner becomes possible, opening new levels of trust, commitment, and love.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £18.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The noosphere, identified in the early twentieth century as intrinsic to the next stage of human and terrestrial evolution, is defined as the Earth's ''mental sphere'' or stratum of human thought. Manifesto for the Noosphere, the final work by renowned author Jose Arguelles, predicts that the noosphere will be fully accessed on December 21, Manifesto for the Noosphere is intended to inform and prepare humanity for the nature and magnitude of this shift. Arguelles brings in the Mayan long - count calendar, radical theories on the nature of time, advanced states of consciousness, and the possible intervention of galactic intelligence. He carefully details the role of the noosphere in relation to other planetary strata (hydrosphere, biosphere, atmosphere) as well as the history and nature of the biosphere - noosphere transition and the intermediary phases of the technosphere and cybersphere.

The ascension to the noosphere or Supermind (using the terminology of Sri Aurobindo), Arguelles says, will be an unprecedented ''mind shift'' that mirrors the emergence of life itself on the planet.

15. Spiritual Bypassing When Spirituality Disconnects Us from What Really Matters (Large Print 16pt) - Robert Augustus Masters

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Spiritual bypassing - the use of spiritual beliefs to avoid dealing with painful feelings, unresolved wounds, and developmental needs - is so pervasive that it goes largely unnoticed. The spiritual ideals of any tradition, whether Christian commandments or Buddhist precepts, can provide easy justification for practitioners to duck uncomfortable feelings in favor of more seemingly enlightened activity. When split off from fundamental psychological needs, such actions often do much more harm than good. While other authors have touched on the subject, this is the first book fully devoted to spiritual bypassing. In the lineage of Ch gyam Trungpa's landmark Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, Spiritual Bypassing provides an in - depth look at the unresolved or ignored psychological issues often masked as spirituality, including self - judgment, excessive niceness, and emotional dissociation. A longtime psychotherapist with an engaging writing style, Masters furthers the body of psychological insight into how we use (and abuse) religion in often unconscious ways. This book will hold particular appeal for those who grew up with an unstructured new - age spirituality now looking for a more mature spiritual practice, and for anyone seeking increased self - awareness and a more robust relationship with themselves and others.

16. Showbiz (Large Print 16pt) - Jason Anderson

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In 1963, Jimmy Wynn was the second most famous man in America. The comedian's uncanny impression of the President made him a star. But when the genuine article died in a hail of bullets on a sunny afternoon in New Orleans, Jimmy's career met a fate almost as grisly. What happened to the funny man afterward was a mystery no one cared to solve. Nearly 25 years later, Nathan Grant, an ambitious young journalist, discovers the trail Jimmy cut through the entertainment netherworld. He soon realizes this forgotten court jester may have played a very serious part in the country's favourite conspiracy theory. Grant's strange and increasingly dangerous odyssey takes him from a dingy New York record store to the showrooms of Las Vegas, a ghost town in the Mojave Desert, and even a dinner theatre in Niagara Falls. A dark comedy about the cost of fame, Jason Anderson's Showbiz is the story of a man who became a punchline and a writer who is desperate to find out how the rest of the joke goes.

19. The Canadian in America (Large Print 16pt) - Brian D. Wruk And Terry F. Ritchie

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Approximately 50,000 Canadians move to the U.S. every year. Already, there are hundreds of thousands of ex - Canadians living south of the border. The similarity in language, currency, culture, services, and products of these two countries can lead Canadians in the U.S. to mistakenly think that its laws and customs are also the same. It is these areas where The Canadian in America will be crucial to anyone either contemplating a move or already living in the U.S. Can a Canadian qualify for U.S. Medicare at age 65? Is a Canadian will valid in the U.S.? What coverage does your provincial health plan give you in the U.S.? Can you collect Canadian Old Age Security if you move to the U.S.? The Canadian in America answers all these questions and more, focusing on the areas of difference between Canadian and U.S. laws: taxation, investment, health care, wills, and estates. It covers eight areas of financial planning: immigration planning, customs planning, cash management, income tax planning, retirement, estate planning, risk management, and investments. Author and financial advisor Brian D. Wruk explains, in clear and simple language, ways in which one can avoid cross - border complications. For example, in moving across the border, you must contend with the Canadian tax code, the U.S. tax code, and the Canada/U.S. Tax Treaty which overrides the other two in certain areas. A simple move can result in a huge tax liability (sometimes double or triple taxation). This book is an invaluable resource for Canadians who have married U.S. citizens; moved for their employment; are professional athletes or entertainers; are simply seeking a warmer climate to retire to; or are U.S. citizens moving back home from Canada.

20. Universal Co-Opetition (Large Print 16pt) - V. Frank Asaro

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

For all of history, human beings have striven to reconcile the divisions that separate society from society, human from human, and each individual from him - or herself, for the betterment of us all. Philosophy, religion, government, science - each offers solutions, yet the world grows more polarized and unstable every year.

Does nature itself provide the answer? A guiding principle that applies at all levels, from the subatomic to the cosmic, the personal to the global, art to politics?

It does: Co - opetition, a fundamental law that unifies the apparently opposing forces of cooperation and competition. Developed after a long and eclectic study of everything from physics to economics, the theory of Universal Co - opetition offers an antidote to polarization, a tool for figuring out the answers to the great questions, and a recipe for personal and social success - all stemming from the nature of the universe itself.
