The Ancestral Continuum guides readers on an illuminating journey toward an understanding of how much our lives today are affected by the choices and life experiences of our ancestors. This groundbreaking book does for the subject of ancestor acknowledgement what The Secret did to explain the universal Law of Attraction to a wide audience. The Ancestral Continuum is an extraordinary investigation into the spiritual and emotional legacies we inherit at our birth from our ancestors, and a powerful and revolutionary blueprint for transforming how we feel about ourselves. The book takes you on a journey to discover how humanity, throughout time and around the world, acknowledges loved ones who have died and honors those who came before them. And it will give you the tools to explore your family tree, meet your ancestors anew and find your way through the labyrinth of your own legacy. You will begin to see yourself as just one strand in a never-ending tapestry of history and emotion, personality and achievement, tragedy and death, that will continue through your family into eternity. There is a massive interest worldwide in people tracing their roots. But researching into our forebears’ lives often unearths surprising or turbulent histories. The past 250 years have seen more change and upheaval than at any other point in history, and almost everyone alive now will have ancestors whose lives were touched by war, migration, mass upheavals and major turning points in society. Although we may not know their names, the stories of these ancestors have an impact on our lives now and will in the future. We are all connected. By remembering those who have gone before us, we can step into our true power and realize our highest potential.

Wisdom Keys for Unlocking Your Creative Potential was birthed out of my journey and quest for wisdom. In the process, I gained knowledge and understanding and was unleashed into my creative potential. This book provides valuable keys for unlocking your unlimited creative potential. My aim in this book is to help individuals realize and understand the depth of their creative abilities and to use the multifaceted wisdom keys espoused in this book to unlock their creative potential. Creativity has no doubt become an evasive concept for many. Many people value it, many want it but few ever get to expressing it. Why is it so? The goal of this book is to introduce you to the invaluable nuggets gained from discovering that creativity is not an additional project you add to your already full to do list but springs out of the essence of who you really are. Wisdom is the ability to discern, accept and to work in your creative abilities. In other words, wisdom is simply knowing what to do, when to do it, where to do it and with whom to do it with. This book also reflects the countless hours spent seeking wisdom steps or keys on the subject matter of creativity. Using wisdom as a guide and tool in understand and releasing your creative potential is crucial. I point out in this book, that wisdom is an essential part of the quantum or spiritual level of creativity. Therefore in this wisdom keys and creativity series, I will attempt to begin a dialogue on the role of wisdom in creativity to lay the foundation for continued discourse on the topic. The keys espoused in this book are the same and can be applied in every nation, in every tribe and for all peoples. This is because there are universal undeniable principles that govern every human being. The wisdom keys espoused in this book are universal for all who will dare to use then appropriately. A farmer in Australia applying these keys correctly will have the same result as a billionaire in Wall Street. My desire is that as you read this book you will be birthed into an awareness about your creative potential and that your heart will be opened up for a download, an outpouring of this understanding. You may also need to create what I call a consistent "creative environment" and avoid creative cramps by doing some strategic things in your quest to release your creative potential.

Contagion may alarm doctors but marketers thrive on it. Some concepts are so compelling you have to share them. But what makes an idea so infectious you can't keep it to yourself? And how can brands produce these kinds of ideas intentionally rather than by chance?

And in The Contagious Commandments, Paul Kemp-Robertson and Chris Barth condense this valuable research into ten strategic takeaways for your own marketing revolution. Taking inspiration from disruptive campaigns from the likes of Patagonia, Nike, Safaricom, BrewDog, LEGO, Kenco, and dozens more, The Contagious Commandments explores how companies fuse creativity, technology and behavioural psychology to achieve truly original marketing ideas that have a positive impact on society and profits - and how your brand can too.

An Actor S Work

Stanislavski’s ‘system’ has dominated actor-training in the West since his writings were first translated into English in the 1920s and 30s. His systematic attempt to outline a psycho-physical technique for acting single-handedly revolutionized standards of acting in the theatre. Until now, readers and students have had to contend with inaccurate, misleading and difficult-to-read English-language versions. Some of the mistranslations have resulted in profound distortions in the way his system has been interpreted and taught. At last, Jean Benedetti has succeeded in translating Stanislavski’s huge manual into a lively, fascinating and accurate text in English. He has remained faithful to the author's original intentions, putting the two books previously known as An Actor Prepares and Building A Character back together into one volume, and in a colloquial and readable style for today's actors. The result is a major contribution to the theatre, and a service to one of the great innovators of the twentieth century.

Alex Osborn wrote the following: 'Emotional drive is self-starting and largely automatic, whether based on hunger, fear, love, or ambition. ' 'For all of us, a good rule is always to encourage ideas—to encourage speaking up as well as thinking up.' 'Whatever creative success I gained was due to my belief that creative power can be stepped up by effort, and that there are ways in which we can guide our creative thinking. ' 'If we set aside a defined period for creative thinking we can best lure the muse.' 'With enough creative effort, each of us could find the ideas that would smooth out rocky roads!'
