Summary

This highly innovative work presents a piercing interpretation of the tarot in terms of Jungian psychology. Through analogies to the humanities, mythology, and the graphic arts, the significance of the cards is related to personal growth and what Jung termed "individuation." The Major Arcana becomes a map of life, and the hero's journey becomes something that each individual can relate to one's personal life."Sallie Nichols, in her profound investigation of the Tarot has performed an immense service. Her book enriches and helps us to understand the awesome responsibilities laid upon consciousness. She has done this not in an arid fashion but derived from her own experience of the Tarot and its strangely translucent lights. As a result her book not only lives but quickens life in whomever it touches." --Laurens van der Post

    365 Health and Happiness Boosters

    We all want to be happy, but according to research, two-thirds of us don't know how to be happy. Most of us think happiness resides in the things we don't have: the dream house, the perfect mate, the ideal job, the supermodel's body. As proof that possessions don't, in fact, increase the happiness quotient, a study conducted in 1957 and 1992 asked people whether they were happy with what they had in life. In both polls, roughly 30 percent said yes, despite the fact that the standard of living had increased dramatically over the years. This book rests on the assumption that you can be happier, no matter who you are or what your challenges. Rather than delivering abstract theory, it offers 365 concrete things to do, to try, or to reflect on, in order to experience happiness. Some are attitudes that we can change to create more happiness overall in our lives; others are specific things we can do to lift our spirits in the moment; still others are behaviorial modifications or nutritional supplements we can try. And while some are lighthearted and others quite serious, they all will have a positive effect on your mind, body, and spirit.

    Celebrate the moms in your life (and perhaps yourself as well)! After all they've done for us, moms everywhere deserve to be appreciated on a daily basis, rather than waiting all year to get a card and some flowers. Think back on the many things, big and small, your mother has done for you over the years . . . from baking cookies or sometimes letting you choose the radio station on a car trip, to hemming your dress in time for the prom. Isn’t it time you started making those same gestures in the other direction? We think so! It is never too early, or for that matter, too late, to make a parent feel special. Mother’s Day has a long and storied history, stretching back to its earliest roots in the post-Civil War era. What began as one woman’s attempt to help heal the grief of mothers who’d lost sons on both sides of the fight and then became another woman’s attempt to honor her own mother, has morphed over the years into more of a commercial event. Isn’t it time we got back to the idea of making moms feel treasured and appreciated? In these pages, you’ll find idea after idea that will encompass a wide variety of activities to get you thinking about how to make your mom feel special, even if you don’t live close by. Go ahead and remember to buy that card and bring over some flowers on the actual Mother’s Day, but in the meantime, here are some ways to make every day count . . .

    Life Is Sweet - 333 Ways to Look...

    From Harvard classrooms to your grandma's kitchen table—everybody is getting on the look on the brightside bandwagon. If you need to know, there's a ton of medical research to back it up, but people who appreciate where their bread is buttered and how sweet the jam on their toast is—well they're healthier, they live longer, they're usually more successful—although they may not define success as having the most marbles, and for sure other people want to spend more time around them. Addie Johnson calls Life Is Sweet her scrapbook, in which she’s gathered stories that struck her—things that made her happy in the seeing or experience and in the remembering. And bits she’s read. And quotes. People, stories, kids and animals, stuff/no stuff (aka all or nothing), achievements achieved and unpleasant tasks done, laughing (snickering, giggling, guffawing, wetting your pants) health or progress toward it-—all are fodder for happiness. Life is sweet and creamy—yes your life and yours and yours and yours--if you just look at what's in front of your face.
