A beautiful new edition of a classic work of landscape history, in which Alfred Watkins introduced the idea of ancient 'ley lines' criss-crossing the English countryside. First published in 1925, THE OLD STRAIGHT TRACK described the author's theory of 'ley lines', pre-Roman pathways consisting of aligned stone circles and prehistoric mounds, used by our Neolithic ancestors. Watkins's ideas have intrigued and inspired generations of readers – from historians to hill walkers, and from amateur archaeologists to new-age occultists. This edition of THE OLD STRAIGHT TRACK, with a substantial introduction by Robert Macfarlane, will appeal to all who treasure the history, contours and mystery of Britain's ancient landscapes.

Como la mayoría de nosotros, Ryder Carroll trató por todos los medios de organizar su vida: aplicaciones, sistemas, planes, calendarios, programas... Y nada funcionaba. Así que se puso a pensar hasta que dio con su propio método, un sistema que solo necesitaba papel y lápiz, y que era al mismo tiempo efectivo y poco estresante. Compartió ese método con algunos amigos y al poco tiempo este se había convertido en un fenómeno viral. Cientos de miles de personas en todo el mundo siguen hoy su sistema de organización. Pero El método Bullet Journal es mucho más que un libro sobre gestión del tiempo. Es ante todo un manifiesto sobre cómo queremos vivir y de qué manera organizar los dos elementos más importantes de nuestra vida: nuestro —escaso— tiempo y energía. Un libro revolucionario que te ayudará a poner orden, sacar más partido a tu tiempo y alcanzar las metas que te propongas.

Of all the countries in the world, England has the richest history of magical lore and practice. English authors such as J.R.R.Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Terry Pratchett, and J.K.Rowling, dominate the world of magic in fiction, but from the earliest times, England has also acted as home to generations of eccentrics and scholars who have researched and explored every conceivable kind of occult art. Most people are torn between a fascination with magic and an almost instinctive fear of the occult, of a world redolent with superstition and illusion. And yet more people now practice magic in England than at any time in her history. The Book of English Magic explores this hidden story, from its first stirrings to our present-day fascination with all things magical. Along the way readers are offered a rich menu of magical things to do and places to visit.

Rachel Hollis, autora del superventas y fundadora de TheChicSite.com, exhorta a las mujeres a dejar de disculparse por sus deseos, esperanzas y sueños y, en cambio, perseguirlos con pasión y confianza. Rachel ha sido testigo con frecuencia de mujeres que tienen temor de lograr sus propios objetivos. Temen pasar vergüenza, no alcanzar la perfección o no ser lo suficientemente valiosas. Pero el mayor temor de todos es ser juzgadas por el solo hecho de tener una ambición. Habiendo aprendido a definirse a sí mismas a la luz de otras personas –ya sea como esposas, madres, hijas o amigas– muchas mujeres han olvidado quiénes son en realidad y quiénes deberían ser. En este libro la celebridad emprendedora en línea, Rachel Hollis, alienta a las mujeres a ser dueñas de sus esperanzas, deseos y metas, y les recuerda que no tienen que pedir permiso para desear alcanzar más. Con un llamado a las mujeres de todo el mundo para que no dejen de hablar de sus sueños, Hollis identifica las excusas de las que tienen que liberarse, los comportamientos que deben adoptar y las habilidades que necesitan adquirir, en el camino hacia el crecimiento, la confianza y la mejor versión de sus vidas.

It is the ultimate quest for the ultimate treasure. Chasing a map tattooed on human skin. Across an omniverse of intersecting realities. To unravel the future of the future. Kit Livingstone’s great-grandfather appears to him in a deserted alley during a tumultuous storm. He reveals an unbelievable story: that the ley lines throughout Britain are not merely the stuff of legend or the weekend hobby of deluded cranks, but pathways to other worlds. To those who know how to use them, they grant the ability to travel the multi-layered universe of which we ordinarily inhabit only a tiny part. One explorer knew more than most. Braving every danger, he toured both time and space on voyages of heroic discovery. Ever on his guard and fearful of becoming lost in the cosmos, he developed an intricate code—a roadmap of symbols—that he tattooed onto his own body. This Skin Map has since been lost in time. Now the race is on to recover all the pieces and discover its secrets. But the Skin Map itself is not the ultimate goal. It is merely the beginning of a vast and marvelous quest for a prize beyond imagining. The Bright Empires series—from acclaimed author Stephen R. Lawhead—is a unique blend of epic treasure hunt, ancient history, alternate realities, cutting-edge physics, philosophy, and mystery. The result is a page-turning, adventure like no other. “Anything but ordinary . . . Dynamic settings are mixed with unpredictable adventures [and] parallel worlds.” —BookPage

The Endless Thread is a clearly written account of the discovery of a very ancient and hitherto secret Celtic oral tradition, dating back to a time long before the Celts became known to history. This tradition is a cornucopia of knowledge and beliefs, which are relevant to the present time and demand a total re-evaluation of our most cherished beliefs. This knowledge was held is secret, because in historical times, it could not have been understood. Church and state would have sought to extinguish it, seeing it as a threat to their power. Western culture has now reached a stage at which what has been so carefully preserved can be considered by minds not burdened by dogma, religious or scientific. Important aspects of the ancient knowledge are encoded in the Book of Kells, now in the keeping of Trinity College, Dublin. A detailed explanation is given here. Other sources are described and illustrated. The author has made a major discovery, hidden for millennia in the prehistoric Glastonbury Zodiac. This too is illustrated. Other discoveries are also described. What was the deluge, remembered in the lore of many peoples throughout the world? An explanation is suggested here. Although the existence of Atlantis is usually denied as a geological impossibility, the Celtic tradition sidesteps this view with a radical alternative, also accounting for the fabled continent of Mu. Personal experiences of the author and others are interwoven with the main theme of this book, some surprising, some harrowing, and some humorous. The Endless Thread commends itself to those seeking answers, but not to the gullible or to sensation-seekers.

Merrily Watkins, parish priest, single mum and Deliverance Consultant to the Diocese of Hereford, heads for the Malvern Hills to investigate an alleged paranormal dimension to a spate of road accidents in the sleepy village of Wychehill. Merrily is called in when two people are killed in a head-on crash that is also linked to the revamped local pub which, it seems, has injected the valley with a shattering, strobing surge of inner-city nightlife... and drugs. When a dealer is found savagely murdered below the great earthen hillfort of Herefordshire Beacon, police ask: is it a ritual killing, a gangland disposal or a cry of outrage? As Merrily and the police follow separate paths towards the truth, Merrily's teenage daughter, Jane, faces the consequences of her own obsession with a possibly prehistoric site in their home village of Ledwardine. Until, on a night of frenzied violence, in a place at the centre of an ancient, universal mystery, the final, shocking connections are made.

Here Marabas explains succinctly the sacred triple-salutation ritual used by the Ancient Egyptian priests of Son at Helipolis to draw down the power of the sun for use in their life and magic. Really practical Step by Step instructions on performing it yourself at home mean that anyone can do it anywhere in the world. Marabas says the benefits are tremendous. Everything we are, comes from the Sun. The Sun is life and gives us life. Everything that happens in nature - everything we think and do is controlled by it. The ancients knew and understood this which is why the Priests of Heliopolis harmonised their souls with it using this primordial rite.
