In a culture infatuated with youth and determined to avoid old age at all costs, this book dares to raise a question that has been all but forgotten in the age of Viagra and cosmetic surgery. What benefits might lie in accepting the aging process as natural, rather than trying to hold on to youth and its pleasures all the way to the grave?Osho takes us back to the roots of what it means to grow up rather than just to grow old. Both in our relationships with others, and in the fulfillment of our own individual destinies, he reminds us of the pleasures that only true maturity can bring. He outlines the ten major growth cycles in human life, from the self-centered universe of the preschooler to the flowering of wisdom and compassion in old age.Osho‘s sly sense of humor runs like a red thread through the book, along with a profound compassion and understanding of how easy it is to be distracted from the deeper meaning and purpose of our lives-which is, ultimately, to flower into our own individual uniqueness and maturity with an attitude of celebration and joy.£11.99 Add to basket
In Zen: The Path of Paradox, Osho suggests Zen as a possible bridge between East and West, and between the scientific and the spiritual.
“Without science, the East has lost much; without meditation, the West has lost much. I am trying to bring together East and West, because together they will create the whole.”
Osho encourages the reader to throw off the accumulated “knowing” of a lifetime–to let go of physical, mental, and emotional tensions, to relax into the flow of an extraordinary discourse and become receptive to the present moment and the potential within.
Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people–along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha–who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.£11.99 Add to basket
Have you ever seen a real fairy house? Not the ceramic ones you purchase, but a real fairy house made from natural elements? Well, now you can build your own miniature magical abode – the perfect addition to your garden. Revealed in FAIRY HOUSES for the first time are the step-by-step instructions for constructing exquisite fairy houses, explained by master fairy house architect, Sally Smith.
From her home on the edge of the Adirondacks, Smith has been creating one-of-a-kind fairy residencies for years. She uses natural artefacts such as butterfly wings for stained-glass windows, twigs for window frames, and birch bark for walls. Smith reveals her building secrets in FAIRY HOUSES. Readers begin their fairy house project by flipping through an inspiration gallery, deciding what kind of house they wish to create and considering where in nature they’ll put it. From there, readers learn about building materials (found and natural), on-site fairy house construction, how to light a fairy house and how to incorporate stonework into the design. All of Smith’s secret tips and techniques are then showcased in a series of step-by-step photos, making fairy house creation easy. The ones featured in FAIRY HOUSES were designed especially for this book and are meant for longer-lasting installations.
With this book, fairy houses move beyond “cute” and into beautiful nature-woven works of art. When you’re through, you’ll find yourself in an enchanted land where a Lord of the Rings-esque mood is magically evoked.
