The Beauty and Nobility of Life: The Restoration of Meaning in a World Overwhelmed by Commercialism, Scientism, and Fundamentalism
2017 Nautilus Book Award Winner: 1st Place Gold Award in the category ‘USA Spiritual Growth & Development”
THE BEAUTY AND NOBILITY OF LIFE has several related themes. First, it critiques many aspects of contemporary life that try to extinguish that radiant “gleam of light” (Emerson’s phrase) we all possess and turn us into powerless servants of the status quo: mindless conformity; excessive consumerism; disrespect for ourselves, others, and nature; and narrow-minded, fall-in-line thinking. The book then turns to the sanctity of the individual, the magnificence of life, and the unity and Oneness of all creation. In a time of so much anger, divisiveness and hate, it emphasizes love, compassion, creativity, dignity, thinking for oneself, standing up to power, and intuiting higher levels of life beyond what can be seen, heard, or touched, in order to transcend our limitations and discover our true place in this marvelous universe.

The Sacred Chalice
THE SACRED CHALICE: WOMEN OF THE BIBLE – THEIR PSYCHOLOGICAL & SPIRITUAL MEANING
THE SACRED CHALICE is about the remarkable female characters in the Bible and what each represents within our soul. In the Kabbalah, the Sacred Feminine is described as the vessel that accepts and protects the seed, the Light, of the Sacred Masculine, like a chalice filled with wine. Later, she pours forth the contents of the chalice, giving birth to all of nature and life which she will nurture. As you listen with a fresh ear to their stories you will understand why only the Sacred Feminine, in the soul of a human being or the soul of a civilization, can receive the pure, unknowable, endless, Being of God, without trying to limit or define it, and bring it to birth as infinite love and abundance. And only the Sacred Feminine, through pure noetic intuition, can reconnect us to infinite Divine Being, and lead us home. (Also available for KINDLE).
What does this mean? It means that without the Feminine, all spiritual evolution is impossible!
Eat Healthy: Live Longer, Live Kinder
EAT HEALTHY: LIVE LONGER, LIVE KINDER
Eating well is not a dreary, unfair punishment. Wholesome, nutritious food is delicious and enjoyable. Eating well is living well, with love and respect for ourselves, for each other, and for the planet. This book contains all the information you need, including a sampling of healthy appetizing recipes. While we are looking for better treatments after we get sick, and finding ways to cut medical costs and get health insurance coverage for everyone without destroying our economy, it seems lost on many people that the vast majority of our healthcare problems could be avoided, lessened, or healed, by simply cutting out all the unhealthy foods that we eat, and switching to a healthy, natural diet. This would not just be better for our bodies. It would also be better for our hearts and minds, and all of life. (Also available in KINDLE) 124 pp.
Includes 10 fantastic vegan recipes from Chef Rhea Parsons!
Symbols, Meaning, and the Sacred Quest
SYMBOLS, MEANING, AND THE SACRED QUEST: SPIRITUAL AWAKENING IN JEWISH, CHRISTIAN AND ISLAMIC STORIES
Fed up with violence, hatred, and bigotry? In a world where religious differences often trigger hatred and violence, here is a book that celebrates the beauty, decency, wisdom and unity of all our traditions. When you unveil the inner symbolism of all the world's great scriptures, you find that they are all reminding us that we are children of the same divine source, and we are all here for the same reason; to experience life to its fullest, to love ourselves and each other unconditionally, to open our hearts and minds to the full splendor of the universe, and to awaken that spark of divinity within each one of us that can lift our soul back to that source in conscious communion. (Also available in KINDLE) 444 pp.
“Metaphor and myth come alive and are full of wonder. Bible and Qur'an stories show a deeper, more mysterious, and profoundly inspirational meaning,” – Louisa Gilder
The “V” Word Vegan Passover Haggadah e-Book
The “V” Word Vegan Passover Haggadah
For people who hold vegan Passover Seders, there are limited options when it comes to Haggadahs. “This Vegan Haggadah has been lovingly written to combine both the traditional practices of the Passover Seder while also acknowledging the oppression of other living beings which requires breaking with some of those traditions. It is a marriage of old and new, as we expand the scope of those who pray for freedom.
This Haggadah aims to remove the hypocrisy of celebrating freedom at a table filled with products of enslavement, suffering and death and replace it with messages of peace, compassion and ahimsa (non-violence).” – from The “V” Word Vegan Passover Haggadah
This e-book is a 70-page PDF with full-color photos and a few bonus vegan Passover recipes from The “V” Word such as vegan Gefilte fish and matzoh ball soup.

The Song of Songs
THE SONG OF SONGS: FORMATTED AS A LOVERS’ POETIC DIALOGUE
Think the Bible is stuffy? You’re in for a huge surprise. Solomon’s “Song of Songs”, which is found in the Hebrew Bible, is a beautiful, sacred and erotic masterpiece that reverberates on many levels — from the courtship of the king and his betrothed, to the mystical wedding of Heaven and Earth, to the sweet, sensual pillow talk of all happy lovers. This adaptation, which alters none of the words, is merely written out clearly as a poetic dialogue and is meant to be read out loud together by couples. A wonderful Valentine’s Day gift, or any time you are feeling romantic. (Also available in KINDLE). 35 pp.
“The Song of Songs is one of the most beautiful pieces of literature in the world. Reading it aloud with a lover will make it clear why this is so.” – Jennifer Cameron-Smith
Self-Love Through The Sacred Feminine: A Guide to Self-Love Through The Paintings and Channelings of Jo Jayson
Jo Jayson’s extraordinary thirteen paintings of Sacred Feminine archetypes, prophetesses and women of strength herald the way to a unique path back towards Self-Love. The thirteen feminine energies came to artist Jo Jayson over the past several years, compelling her to paint their images and spread their powerful messages of Love, Light and Hope. In ‘Self-Love Through the Sacred Feminine’, Jo Jayson gives these Sacred Feminine beings of Light and Spirit a voice, explaining through prayers, meditations, and healing lessons how to reconnect with our inner wisdom, and dance through the spirals of life and the changing seasons. Guided by Spirit, she helps us to understand that we are the expressions and reflections of the Sacred Feminine, and that our souls are “cups full of Source”. We are born wearing a crown; there is nothing more Divine than our own souls. Through the teachings of Guinevere, The Magdalene, Brighid of Ireland, Isis, Mary the Mother, Jeanne d’Arc, Miriam, Guan Yin, Morgan le Fey, Artemis, Kali Ma, Inanna, and Grandmother Spider, we learn how to love ourselves, take back our power, gain courage, forgive, embrace our sensuality, and weave the web of our own lives.
