The Positive Psychology of Synchronicity
Enhance Your Mental Health with the Power of Coincidence
By Chris Mackey

“A profound introduction to deep concepts of mind, meaning and the challenges of creating a life well-lived for everyone.” – Ernest Rossi, PhD, author of The Psychobiology of Gene Expression and Creating Consciousness.

Synchronicity is meaningful coincidence that connects our inner and outer worlds. This book reveals how it can guide us along our life path, helping us through challenging times and nudging us toward self-fulfilment. Psychologist Chris Mackey writes from personal experience, not only as a practitioner but also as a patient who has suffered serious mental illness. Formerly a rationalist with little time for non-scientific approaches, his own experiences and those of his patients have convinced him that synchronicity has a key role to play in helping us to tap into our intuitive and spiritual selves and guiding us through life.

This exciting new approach to synchronicity and the treatment of depression and other mental disorders will be of great interest to practitioners and patients alike, as well as to anyone interested in the opportunities offered by altered states of consciousness. The book includes: * Carl Jung’s original description of synchronicity * Real-life case studies * Brain science * Practical ways to work with synchronicity, including journalling, symbol analysis and dream interpretation.

Can The Mind Be Quiet?
Living, Learning and Meditation
By Jiddu Krishnamurti
Foreword by Terence Stamp

These 60 chapters, with titles like “Solitude Means Freedom”, “All Seeking is from Emptiness and Fear”, and “Life is an Extraordinarily Beautiful Movement”, carry the essence of Krishnamurti’s teaching style and profoundest wisdom.

Each one reflects an encounter K had at different times during the sixties and seventies. It opens with a poetic account of the location where the encounter took place, plus occasionally a description of the seeker that K has met. The chapter then moves back and forth between the seeker and the teacher, giving the reader plenty to reflect upon. This is previously unpublished material. Readers will be captivated by the luminous prose and the piercing insight. The style is enigmatic and poetical but each chapter contains more than enough for the reader to consider, perhaps as a daily practice. In the style of Paulo Coelho they have the quality of fables, but the teaching is far more profound and challenging.
