The start of a new year is a wonderful time for reflection – for giving thanks for the year that has been and for looking forward into the year to come. We naturally contemplate our dreams and visions for the new year ahead. Some of us choose to solidify these thoughts into New Year Resolutions, when we decide to make a priority of achieving a particular goal. However you view the move from 2018 to 2019, let these mindfulness texts inspire you on your journey.

In Rituals for Life, you’ll learn how to infuse meaning into your daily life and improve your sense of health, empowerment, peace, prosperity, gratitude, intentionality, groundedness, and renewal.
Learn how to greet the dawn; walk through green space to reflect, refresh, and restore healthy well-being; heat or cool your body with Ayurvedic spices; use your breath to find bliss; create a personal ceremony to bless your healthy body and creative mind.

After the hustle and bustle of the festive season, many of us are probably craving a calmer, more spacious way of living right now. The start of a new year offers that space for reflection and establishing new priorities and routines.

Rise Sister Rise is a Guide to Unleashing the Wise, Wild Woman Within.
This book, filled with tools, contemplative questions, rituals and exercises, is a call to arms for women to rise up, tell their truth and lead. Many women have spent their lives trying to succeed by ‘making it’ in a man’s world. But things are changing – more and more women are realising that this way of being is no longer sustainable.
It’s a manual for healing the insecurities, the fears and the limiting inherited patterns that stop women trusting their innate power and wisdom, and being the person they came here to be.
So let Rise Sister Rise inspire you to listen to your intuition and act on it, to gather the courage to be seen and heard, to know your worth, and to heal the world around you by first healing yourself.
Yoga doesn’t make your life easier; it makes you better at your life.
That’s the message of this book.
While many engage in asana, the physical practice of yoga, author Alanna Kaivalya believes that yoga’s most transformative effects are found in the realms of the spiritual and psychological.
Yoga Beyond the Mat shows you how to develop a personal, holistic yoga practice to achieve lasting and permanent transformation.
Through ritual, meditation, journaling, asana, and other spiritual practices, Alanna Kaivalya provides techniques for developing a personal mythology and allowing the ego to rest, leading modern-day yogis toward what they have been missing: the realisation of personal bliss.
If you’ve ever experienced a ‘brought-you-to-your-knees’ moment, this book is meant for you. If your greatest desire for 2019 is to find a way to return to life, then read on.
It may be that you’ve recently lived through a breakup or an illness; the death of someone close to you; or a period of high stress, anxiety, or debilitating depression. Maybe you’ve experienced all of the above at once.
None of us is alone in this.
Everyone has their own story to tell. Some are more traumatic than others, but the larger truth is that everyone has faced hardship and the darkest of times provide some of the best opportunities to learn, grow, and change our lives for the better.
In each chapter, author Pam Butler provides a practical takeaway, forming part of a ‘Bliss Toolbox’: the practices that will help you not only survive difficult times, but use the experiences to bring greater purpose and fulfilment to your life this year and always.
