Since the beginning of human history, our ancestral roots and those of the hedgerows have been intimately entangled. Now, often forgotten amongst the hedgerows, the ‘wild weeds’ still offer amazing medicinal opportunities, delicious sources of food and fascinating legends of our past. Many of the secrets of our history lie hidden in the stories of these plants. Our ancestors, living in harmony with the cycles of nature, knew how to prepare wild food, prepare remedies, make protective talismans and so much more. But we have lost our connection with the magic of nature…
In this fascinating and unique book, richly illustrated, Jo Dunbar shows us what we so often miss in the beauty all around us. We learn here which plants to pick (or avoid!) and how to use them for ourselves. And woven in with this are the ancient stories and folklore of the countryside, firing our imagination and helping us to communicate in a real way with our natural environment.
This book was a FINALIST in the national Wishing Shelf Awards, with a score of 37/40!
"Often funny, always informative, an eye-opener."

If you feel that you’ve lost the joy of life then this book has been written for you. Perhaps you’re just not sure where you’re going these days or you've been shaken by a life-changing event. Sandra Bray knows these feelings all too well but she refused to be a ‘victim of circumstances' and instead decided to treat them as blessings in disguise. This is exactly how we grow spiritually! This is how we find the true joy of life.
But Sandra felt that she needed a ‘guide book’ to help her in doing something new each day. But there wasn’t one… so she wrote it! In these pages you will find nearly two hundred suggestions for activities that are sure to lift your spirits. One or two of them may even change your life entirely…
Now is the time for you to have the life that you want and deserve. This book is a reminder of the knowledge that you were born with, that you are an amazing being with skills and talents lying dormant, ready to awaken and give you all the answers you need. Here is a spiritual reference handbook - a guide to living happily and successfully, hand in hand with the energy that created our universe. It is the knowledge and wisdom distilled from a lifetime’s experience of working with spirit.

In this New Age when so many of us are seeking to understand better our purpose in life, many teachers have come forward professing to know the way. But it is indeed rare to meet one who has lived the spiritual path for their whole life, who knows the other worlds with every fibre of their being and can demonstrate the greatest of spiritual gifts to prove it.
In this book, the Reverend Melanie Hallett describes her extraordinary and challenging experiences of life and, in her uniquely down-to-earth way, tells us what they mean for the human spirit. Her teaching is often unorthodox, but always profound. This is her debut book, as entertaining as it is inspiring.
As a troubled teenager, Elisa was groomed by an apparently charming Afghan asylum-seeker. When she found the courage to flee his controlling and violent behaviour, he followed and brutally murdered her sister and best friend in front of her eyes. Elisa spent months in psychiatric care, traumatised by grief, but healing through writing.
You will not put this book down. Her descriptions of the events, of others' behaviour and of her own inner states of mind are breathtaking and humbling.

Do we live many lives? Do we have to return to the Earth over and over again to learn our lessons better or ‘pay the debts of our karma’?
