Where to Begin?

A beautiful book, first released in 1986.  The fact that it’s still in print today says something.  I love it’s gentle message of unconditional love and miracles that happen every day.

Dr Gabor Maté

An amazing find for me, can’t recommend this man’s work enough…

What’s New?


Powerful, logical lessons from top performers.

stick to good ones. Avoid the common mistakes most people make when changing habits. Overcome a lack of motivation
and will power. Develop a stronger identity and believe in yourself. Make time for new habits. Design your environment to make success easier. Make tiny, easy changes that deliver big results. Get back on track when you
get off course. And most importantly, how to put these ideas into practice in real life.’ Great book!

Megan Devine

Through stories, research, life tips, and creative and mindfulness-based practices, Megan offers a  guide through an experience we all must face. She debunks the cultural goal of returning to a normal, ‘happy’ life, replacing it with a far healthier middle path, one that invites us to build a life alongside grief rather than seeking to overcome it. 

Glennon Doyle

A book of Infidelity, betrayal and redemption. How our ideals of femininity and masculinity can make it impossible for a woman and a man to actually know each other. How to use crisis as a springboard to a truer identity and a better life. About parenting our kids through pain, friendships that hurt and heal, faith that shackles women and liberates them. How to finally find peace in your own skin. Shameless sex, God, food, drugs, porn and tenderness—and how the dirt and the divine are so often inseparable.

Mo Gawdat

Mo questions some of the most fundamental aspects of our existence, shares the underlying reasons for suffering, and plots out a step-by-step process for achieving lifelong happiness and enduring contentment.

Sophie Sabbage

A book about the unwanted and unexpected moments in our lives. They surprise us, they blindside us. They shock us. They command our attention. Some bounce off us, others strike deep into our being. These moments are collision points between how we see life and how life actually is.

Bernie Siegel

‘Unconditional love is the most powerful stimulant of the immune system. The truth is: love heals. Miracles happen to exceptional patients every day–patients who have the courage to love, those who have the courage to work with their doctors to participate in and influence their own recovery.’

Bessel van der Kolk

Powerful best-selling book that has helped me hugely: ‘Only making it safe for trauma victims to inhabit their bodies, and to tolerate feeling what they feel, and knowing what they know, can lead to lasting healing.’
