sense of humor, she has created a line of... "Greeting
Cards for the Spiritually Challenged". Ranging
from the deeply affirmative to irresistably irreverently funny,
Diane's cards are proven best sellers and will bring deep laughter
and tears to you - and your friends, loved ones and customers. See

Your Way to Creative Freedom is a personal but universal
primer for increasing creative and emotional freedom.What do dreams
mean? Can they help us understand who and where we are? Recognizing
shortcomings in creative work and becoming able to observe in
dreams the unconscious conflicts which require such shortcomings
is the crux of this personal but universal primer for increasing
creative and emotional freedom and power. As Lucy Daniels shows
us the landmarks, personal symbols, and specific outcomes of her
30-year struggle against writer’s block, she also offers
a road map for others to use on their own journeys.
Eyes of the Father focuses on the universal truth that
many cannot bear to acknowledge — that powerful people and
experiences in our pasts control us in the present. A case in
point is artist and piano player Lily Price. As a small child
when her parents are star entertainers in Los Angeles, this blue-eyed,
red-haired, black-skinned daughter of a flamboyant white musician
and a beautiful black singer glories in the delight her father
shows for her and her strikingly “special” appearance.
But when tragedy brings Lily and her mother back east to the rigidly
conservative home of her fundamentalist minister grandfather in
Millboro, North Carolina, “special” is viewed as “freak.”
And Lily’s response to this loss is only one of several
compelling and intertwined character conflicts. The Eyes of the
Father is a love story with epic dimensions. In it, as in real
life, human strength and frailty interact with fate to produce
a mixture of sadness and joy in which one person’s tragedy
becomes victory for another.
Joan Medlicott is best known for her series of novels taking place
in Western North Carolina...the first being The Ladies of
Covington Send Their Love. Her latest novel, The
Three Mrs. Parkers, is in bookstores now. This is a heartwarming
story about three generations of women who find their way past old
hurts and losses to understanding, forgiveness and love. One reviewer
called the novel "superb". "It is high drama,"
she writes, "as it tells the story of these women's lives."

HUGGETT ANCIENT PATHWAYS
ASA HUGGETT’S healing practice combines the ancient traditions
of Andean shamanism with contemporary energy medicine. Her training
includes several years of studying with master shamans including
Alberto Villoldo (Shaman, Healer, Sage) and a 2 year program in
Archetypes & Sacred Contracts with Caroline Myss (Anatomy of
the Spirit, Sacred Contracts). Both of these traditions highlight
the importance of renegotiating the contracts held in the unconscious
which restrict our growth and the expression of the Authentic Self.
