Survivors often feel alone in their experiences, with emotions that linger long after the trauma is over. As a survivor of incest, Robin Lynn Brooks understands the feelings. In her ground-breaking poetic memoir, The Blooming of the Lotus, she takes you on her deeply personal journey of healing. Traveling into the abyss of her past, exploring the depths of her experiences with brutal incest, violence, and torture, she journeys on her awe-inspiring quest to uncover her authentic self. The book will strike a cord with survivors, lending hope that even the deepest, darkest pit of despair can be opened to the light. "I have heard many accounts of trauma over the years, yet it is rare to come upon one captured so perfectly and expressed with such candor, beauty, and grace. . . Robin's inexhaustible courage, perseverance, and insight through the maze of self-discovery and healing are reflected on every page. She poignantly reveals her deepest vulnerability in an effort to share her story and healing process with other survivors. With great success she conveys that the journey from the darkest imprisonment to the light of freedom is indeed possible. This memoir is Robin's gift to us all." ~AnDréya Wilde, Ph.D.

The secret to happiness is to acknowledge and transform suffering, not to run away from it. In No Mud, No Lotus, Thich Nhat Hanh offers practices and inspiration transforming suffering and finding true joy. Thich Nhat Hanh acknowledges that because suffering can feel so bad, we try to run away from it or cover it up by consuming. We find something to eat or turn on the television. But unless we’re able to face our suffering, we can’t be present and available to life, and happiness will continue to elude us. Nhat Hanh shares how the practices of stopping, mindful breathing, and deep concentration can generate the energy of mindfulness within our daily lives. With that energy, we can embrace pain and calm it down, instantly bringing a measure of freedom and a clearer mind. No Mud, No Lotus introduces ways to be in touch with suffering without being overwhelmed by it. "When we know how to suffer," Nhat Hanh says, "we suffer much, much less." With his signature clarity and sense of joy, Thich Nhat Hanh helps us recognize the wonders inside us and around us that we tend to take for granted and teaches us the art of happiness.

The lotus is the world's most iconic flower. Galvanised by receiving seeds from a three-thousand-year-old lotus, which flowered without difficulty in an English summer, Mark Griffiths set out to track the path of this sublime plant to its home in the Lotus-Lands of Japan. The Lotus Quest unveils a stunning vision of Japan's feudal era, as Griffiths visits shrines, ruins, gardens and wild landscapes, and meets priests and archaeologists, philosophers and anthropologists, gardeners and botanists, poets and artists, and even dines on the lotus in a Tokyo café. Beautifully illustrated, intensely atmospheric and full of suspense, The Lotus Quest shows how the deep crimson of the lotus runs like a tracer dye, tracking the spread, fusion and fission of the world's great civilizations.

In this candid, insightful, and unconventional memoir, Goldie Hawn invites us to join her in an inspirational look back at the people, places, and events that have touched her. It is the spiritual journey of a heart in search of enlightenment. With her trademark effervescence, Goldie delivers a personal look at private and powerful events that carried her through life: her father’s spontaneity; her mother’s courage; and the joy of being a daughter, a sister, a parent, and a lover. She writes about her childhood dreams of becoming a ballerina. She takes us on a tour of her go-go years in 1960s New York City, the phenomenon of TV’s Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, her Oscar-winning debut in Cactus Flower and Hollywood stardom. She writes intimately about the challenges of love, anger and fear, and the importance of compassion and integrity. She speaks openly about her family, her partner Kurt Russell, her children; her faith, her curiosity for that which she doesn’t yet know, and her thirst for knowledge. Most of all, it is a trip back through a life well lived by a woman well loved.

Through an act of art one enters into the mystery of soul. As art is created, soul is birthed in the world. Letting the Lotus Bloom explores flower arranging in relationship to this mystery, and finds insights that are applicable to all. They are the bones of a truly creative, artful life. I never gave flowers a second thought, other than buying them every now and then and sometimes remembering to put an aspirin in the water. Then I read Letting the Lotus Bloom. I found it to be both strong and delicate, like the flowers it celebrates. I loved the voice and the stories. And, not surprisingly, it left me with a new respect for flowers and the people who work with them. What did surprise me, however, was how powerfully Letting the Lotus Bloom connected me with soul in general, my soul in particular, and the beauty of soul's unfolding. I will read this book more than once, and I will give it to friends, with and without an accompanying bouquet. -Victoria Moran, author of Creating a Charmed Life This book is a gift to all of us on a creative path! It reminds us that successes, setbacks, joy and tears are all a part of the process, but that, like the lotus, we will always bloom. It is how we are designed. -Ardith Beveridge, AAF, AIFD, PFCI, CAFA, MSF, Founder and Director of the Koehler and Dramm's Institute of Floristy
