            Finding the Path: Awaken Your Connection to Spirit (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Cruickshank, Kelvin

            Every one of us can find the peacefulness and pure love of spirit in our own lives. I'm not saying it's easy - it takes dedication, discipline and devotion - and it means stepping outside our daily business and distraction and actually making a time and a space for that spirit co...nnection. But it's worth it.

            The Winemaker
              

            The Winemaker (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Tyack, Kerry

            Villa Maria is New Zealand's largest privately-owned wine company. That's a very meaningful fact. Over the last 15 years, the New Zealand industry has increasingly globalised, as internatioal corporates take a dominant role in our wine production. Villa Maria has always fiercely ...guarded its independence as a family company, an independence that can be tracked back to the day in 1961 when a young George Fistonich told his Croatian-immigrant father, Andrija, that he wanted to give up the construction industry and take over the tiny family winery. In the 50 years since, he has turned a cottage business that turned out relatively indifferent table and fortified wines into a widely admired company that produces some of this country's very best wines (for which it has won a multitude of local and international awards), has considerable landholdings, is a major exporter, an energetic sponsor, and has an innovative culture. Its not for nothing that George Fistonich has won the coveted Ernst andamp; Young Entrepreneur of the Year award, was knighted, and, in 2011, one of the international wine industry's leading awards. This book traces the arc of Fistonich's life, from his hard-working Mangere childhood to his self-taught marketing audacity, from having to save his beloved business from receivership to taking big bets on the future.What emerges is the portrait of a determined,savvy and visionary man whose life in wine tracks the history of the modern New Zealand wine industry.

            As a seventeen-year-old volunteer firefighter, Brian Walsh suffered third-degree burns to his face. But he chose not to let that tragedy destroy him, and instead used it to create a magnificent life--both personally and professionally. Minutes before Brian Walsh, then just a teen...ager, heard his beeper go off, calling him to help put out another fire, he was on top of the world. An hour later, after a freak flashover and confusion that sent the junior firefighter into the inferno against regulations, Brian had suffered such profound burns to his face that he was unidentifiable to his fellow firefighters. Nearly everyone expected him to die that night. He did not. Nearly everyone expected him to die in the burn unit where, over the next month, every other patient died. Nearly everyone, including family and friends, expected Brian to choose a professional life that would keep him from showing his face, and the personal life of a hermit. He did not. Boldly forging a path forward with courage, grace, and determination, Brian silenced his doubters and defied all expectations. Decades later, Brian is an extraordinarily successful and renowned financial planner, family man, community fixture, philanthropist, motivational speaker, and industry leader. In this stirring autobiography, he tells his incredible story, sharing the lessons that only tragedy could teach and how they helped him--and can help anyone--achieve greater success, inside and out. Beyond the Mask is the moving and inspirational story of how one horrific moment can define a human being forever--in the most life-affirming way.

            Revolution of the Soul: Awaken to Love Through Raw Truth, Radical Healing, and Conscious Action (Hardback, Unabridged)

            Celebrated yoga teacher and activist Seane Corn shares pivotal accounts of her life with raw honesty--enriched with in-depth spiritual teachings--to help us heal, evolve, and change the world My first lessons in spirituality and yoga had nothing to do with a mat, but everything t...o do with waking up. They included angels, seeing God, and being in Heaven. But, believe me, not the way you might think. So begins Revolution of the Soul. What comes next reads like a riveting memoir filled with uncensored moments of joy, pain, wonder, and humor. Except, this book is so much more than that. Seane's real purpose is to guide us into a deep, gut-level understanding of our highest Self through yoga philosophy and other tools for emotional healing--not just as abstract ideas but as embodied, fully-felt wisdom. Why? To spark a revolution of the soul in each of us, so we can awaken to our purpose and become true agents of change. Just a few of the stops along the way include: The everyday angels Seane finds in the gritty corners of New York's 1980s East Village; her early struggles as a total yoga-class misfit; the profound shadow work and body-based practices that helped her to heal childhood trauma, OCD, unhealthy behaviors, and relationship wounding; hard-earned lessons from some of the most heartbreaking places on the planet; and many other unforgettable teaching stories.
