Gagnier De Mendoza, Mary Jane
Almost twenty years ago, a young Canadian woman, Mary Jane Gagnier, travelled through Mexico on a journey of self-exploration. One evening on the zocalo in Oaxaca, she met a weaver from the nearby village of Teotitlan del Valle, who offered his uncles' help in repairing her broken clarinet. Shortly thereafter the two were married, and rather instantly the Ontario native with wanderlust found herself intimately immersed in the culture and traditions of her new home. Fiestas are synonymous with Mexico and daily ceremonial rituals and celebrations are at the center of Oaxaca's spiritual and social life. Gagnier de Mendoza chronicles the festival cycle in Teotitlan, a Zapotec village located fifteen miles from the capitol. The fiestas here center on the complex art of hosting, whether for family gatherings or religious ceremonies that involves traditional cooking and flower arranging, candle making and fireworks. Throughout the year, village brass bands regularly line the streets in processions featuring plumed dancers and masked actors. Beginning with Christmas posadas through Fiesta of the Black Christ of Esquipulas, pre-wedding and wedding celebrations, Lent and Holy Week, post-Easter revelry celebrating the patron saints, to the conclusion of the festival cycle with Day of the Dead, this memoir chronicles the spirit-life of an ancient community that day after day honors its gods as itself. 159pp.

Reichman-Israelsown, Raymond
In search of the panacea to every ill, The Mind of God takes us on a journey towards the reduction of all questions, and all answers, to one. The universal common denominator - the one without a second, the Kingdom of God - the finding of which will 'add all else' unto us. The author tackles the 'impossible' task of describing the infinite with finite tools - words. He deals with the dilemma of transcending the limitation of words in an effort at expressing the inexpressible, the ineffable, the silence. Within transcendental meditation the word is rendered unnecessary. But words are needed to describe the ladder to reach the transcendent. The book seeks to reconcile the paradox of intellectual and physical work and effortless intuitive revelation and mystical creative realisation. The deepest and most meaningful of expressions do not lie in words, but in the pregnant omniscient infinity between words. The paradox of communication at this level is the necessity to use words to describe the 'wordless.' Exploring reality, creation and the fall of man, man emerges as an expression of God. The Path is the sum of all paths. All religions or spiritual paths lead us Home to Self-Realisation. 182pp.

Yolanda, Nada
Travel back in time two thousand years. Imagine yourself in the Upper Room, sitting at the feet of the Master, the resurrected Christ, Jesus of Nazareth. Bask in the radiance of his materialised presence. Hear his illuminating words, given then to a few disciples. Receive his inner teaching, the true meaning of his resurrection into the light body, the spiritual or ascended form of his I Am Self. So it is now. This book reveals the sacred wisdom that Christ Jesus imparts to all who are ready to follow his pattern in re-evolving into cosmic consciousness. Inside are the keys you need to understand, and to prepare for, the demonstration of your own immortal, etheric, fourth dimensional, resurrected, light body. The time is ripe. In these Latter Days, light workers throughout the planet are undergoing a spiritual regeneration that will lead all mankind into the fourth dimension, a new heaven on a new Earth. We are preparing the force field for the redescent of our planetary way shower, Sananda, in his light body as Christ Jesus. Co-partners in the Second Coming, we are called to anchor our light bodies on Earth in order to lift mass consciousness for this prophesied event. As we ascend, Sananda descends. In the Upper Room of your consciousness, the resurrected Christ, your own I Am presence, awaits you. Seated at the feet of the Master - and at the feet of all ascended beings ready to instruct you - open your mind and heart to the adventure of a lifetime: anchoring your light body on Earth! The book presents the esoteric teachings and inter-dimensional communications of Nada-Yolanda, cofounder of Mark-Age. N.B. Crease to bottom corner of front cover. 344pp.
