Shiva Rea - Tending the Heart Fire

The mystical foundations of all the world's spiritual paths meet in a single, sacred place: the heart of the seeker. We have reached a time when scientific understanding mirrors the teachings of the great wisdom traditions in revealing our energetic heart as the light of consciousness, the fire of love, a field of intelligence. Tending the Heart Fire, the first book by pioneering yogini Shiva Rea, is an invitation to embody our extraordinary potential at this turning point in time, to reconnect your life to the rhythms of your body and the natural world—to live in flow with the pulse of life. Weaving together wisdom from the great world traditions—including yoga, Ayurveda, Tantra, and modern science—Shiva presents an essential resource for becoming a firekeeper of the sacred heart.

Shiva Rea teaches vinyasa flow yoga worldwide. She has studied many forms of yoga and dance in India, Africa, Nepal, Jamaica, and Bali. She is a well-known contributor to Yoga Journal and holds an MA in Dance from UCLA's World Arts and Cultures Program, where she also teaches. Shiva Rea's Yoga Tree Workshops can be found here.

Divya Srinivasan - Little Owl's Day

Special Event for Kids!

A squirrel is chittering. Bees are buzzing. The sun is high in the sky. And Little Owl is supposed to be asleep, but when he wakes up early, he’s just too curious to close his eyes again. The forest he knows so well at nighttime is completely different – and exciting – in the day! After watching butterflies dance, wolf pups play, and then his very first rainbow, Little Owl returns to his tree. He has many new stories for his mama.

A blue sky companion to Little Owl’s Night, Little Owl’s Day is just right for young children and the perfect introduction to the joy and wonder of the natural world.

Divya Srinivasan is an illustrator and animator living in Austin, Texas. She is also the author-illustrator of Little Owl’s Night and Octopus Alone.

Nina Lesowitz & Mary Beth Sammons - The Grateful Life

The Grateful Life is a guide to discovering and achieving one's dreams by harnessing the power of a positive attitude. In years of research and practice, authors Nina Lesowitz and Mary Beth Sammons have discovered that grateful living can transform lives. Grateful people are happier people. They are healthier and less stressed. They report much higher levels of satisfaction with their relationships and are less likely to credit luck with the good fortune of others. This book contains inspiring stories about those who exercise gratitude as a spiritual practice to rise out of adversity to new life. It also shows how grateful living is central to the good life and to attracting abundance.

Nina Lesowitz is a leader in women's business in the San Francisco Bay Area. A volunteer for literacy organizations, she also runs Spinergy Group, which represents authors, corporate clients, and non-profits. The recipient of a national award for excellence in media relations, Nina is co-author of the bestselling book The Party Girl Cookbook.

Mary Beth Sammons is an award-winning journalist and author who has contributed to Family Circle, the Chicago Tribune's lifestyle section, and various online health and wellness websites. The author of seven books in the women's self-help and health and wellness fields, including We Carry Each Other: Getting Through Life's Toughest Times, My Family: Collected Memories, and Gifts with Heart.
