Relocating Consciousness Book Excerpt:

This book deals directly with issues of consciousness within works of postcolonial and diasporic writers. It discusses fiction, autobiography and theory to re-formulate a "writing of consciousness", addressing contemporary cultural theory related to a wide range of dynamic writers and ground-breaking novels. A critical analysis of literature contextualises consciousness (understood here as the source of language and human creativity), and explores ways in which consciousness is involved in the creative process. Tackling the controversial nature of consciousness itself, the book argues that consciousness must be understood in its philosophical and social contexts. The idea of relocating consciousness calls for a new aesthetics and ethics of living in the diasporic world where we are all to some extent "migrant". The book explores notions of consciousness as alternative narrative structures to society, while expanding contemporary postcolonial theory beyond the limited dimension of power-based-on-violence to a more visionary exploration of experience based on consciousness as unity-in-diversity. Themes explored include sacred experience as empowerment; trauma, terror and the impact of consciousness; cosmopolitanism and globalisation; and the literature of human survival. Written in a lively and accessible manner the book will appeal to all readers who enjoy being on the cutting-edge of contemporary world literature.

Touched by Nature Book Excerpt:

Touched by Nature is about the incredible healing power of plants. Just as their bodies are able to heal our bodies, as evidenced by the many successes of herbal medicine, so their spirit - or energy - offers much needed help to our spirits.This book is specifically about five-element based plant spirit medicine as developed by renowned international healer and teacher Eliot Cowan. Pip and Lucy trained with Eliot and have been practising the medicine since 2005. They see Plant Spirit Medicine as a very much needed medicine for our time and wanted to offer an accessible way into understanding its power and potential. Story telling offers that way. The book speaks in many voices, and it is a combination of narrative and description by the authors, as well as stories offered by colleagues, teachers, patients and students. The theme of the journey is used throughout: the journey of life which presents us with the challenges and struggles that call us toward the healing offered by deep nature connection; the journey of the seasons which encapsulates five-element understanding; journeys of personal healing and growth experienced from receiving the medicine; the shamanic dream journey in which humans can meet and interact with plant spirits directly through our imagination and beyond; the journey a person must undertake to become a healer and the part plant spirit medicine offers to play in the journey of our societies as we navigate this time of great imbalance and change, returning to a time when the songs and stories of the earth are once more able to be heard.

Rudyard Kipling Book Excerpt:

Paragon of English virtues or racist imperialist? Andrew Lycett (acclaimed biographer of Ian Fleming) has returned to primary sources to tell the intricate story of a misunderstood genius who became Britain's most famous and highest earning author. Among the many new sources, Lycett has discovered previously unpublished letters that illuminate Kipling's crucial years in India, his first girlfriend (the model for Mrs Hauksbee of Plain Tales from the Hills), his parents' decision to send him back to England to boarding school; and in his adult life his use of opium, his frustrating times in London and the brief peace he found in America before the devastating loss of both his young daughter and, in the First World War, his son. Lycett also uncovers the extraordinary story of Kipling's great love for Flo Garrard, daughter of the crown jeweller, and unravels the complicated yet enthralling saga of the American family the Balestiers, and of Carrie Balestier who became Kipling's wife. This biography is full of new material on Kipling's financial dealings with Lord Beaverbrook, his friendships with T.E. Lawrence, the painter Edward Burne-Jones and the Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin (who was his cousin).
