Michelle Moroney, life coach and owner of The Cliffs of Moher Retreat, has been facilitating retreats for over 15 years, and has recognised the desires that connect us all. We want to be happy. We want to feel better. We want to get the most out of life. And we don't want to feel held back. To live a whole life we need to flourish mentally, physically and emotionally. But when we are caught in the cycle of day-to-day living, we can easily get stuck and find that while we thrive in some of these areas, in others we are badly organised, unbalanced and in need of review. The Life Audit is designed to help you take stock of the key areas of your life. By gently offering space to explore, contemplate and create new intentions that are in line with the life you want to live, it will help you move past blockages, and take you from where you are to where you want to be.
Most people are living an unfortunate, shoddy, superficial life with no sense of direction, no sense of purpose, no hope for integrated living, no meaningful relationships; but merely dragging through life on autopilot mode and accumulating worldly experiences and artifacts. What can one do to create an exceptional life? An exceptional life is not something that happens by accident, it has to be created. In this transformative new book, Justine Chinoperekweyi shows that the journey to exceptionality is a creative-intelligent and self-powered wheel. There are certain key ingredients needed by any human being who is seeking perfection. Exceptionality Without Relapse is about those who want to excel in all areas of life by enhancing perception and intelligence. The book helps readers to think from different perspectives and bring about an integrated comprehension of life. The book suggests pathways and principles through which people can transition from insufficiency to a point where they seek opportunities. Hence, in order to live a meaningful life, one should be able to recognize his/her greatness. This would help them become exceptional.
Written by leading experts in the field of TESOL, this book explores the literature on various topic areas and demonstrates how teachers can increase their levels of professionalism by acquiring some general and field-specific strategies. Being a teaching professional is not simply about having the right teaching qualifications and good academic standing, it involves a commitment to being innovative and transformative in the classroom and helping both students and colleagues achieve their goals. A dictionary definition of professionalism reads as follows: professionalism is the conduct, aims, or qualities that characterize or mark a profession or a professional person; and it defines a profession as a calling requiring specialized knowledge and often long and intensive academic preparation (Merriam-Webster, 2013). However, according to Bowman (2013), professionalism is less a matter of what professionals actually do and more a matter of who they are as human beings. Both of these views imply that professionalism encompasses a number of different attributes, and, together, these attributes identify and define a professional. The book is primarily intended for teachers at all levels and in all contexts who are interested in improving their professionalism and developing strategies that can take them to higher levels in the field of TESOL/ELT.

This book offers a new and simplified approach to explore the mind with the imagination. The book is Volume 1 of a planned series with the title ‘Multi Genius Technology for Consciousness’. The main thesis is that by use of the imagination any and all limiting mental conditions can be resolved and consciousness itself can be infinitely expanded. The book opens with a sketch of the underlying philosophical principles, defines a multiple viewpoint system and concepts such as absolute consciousness, truth, the true self, causation and reality. The general science and theory is given in the second part of this book answering questions and covering subjects like the following: - Is there a science of consciousness or mind? - What is known about the subject? - What can we be sure of? - What is the structure of consciousness and minds? - What do we know about thought, the self, the unconscious? A view is presented of an ideal state of man as well as a theory of personal harmony and the cause of distress. Different methods are described in detail, but it is also made clear that some training will be needed for most to practice the type of self-exploration advised in the book. Meditation is stripped to the bare bone essentials of pure perception, which the author calls Basic Meditation. Stressed is the importance and quality of communication in processing. The main technique is called Universal Imagination Processing and uses principles going back to Freud and Jung’s active imagination. The term ‘Quantitative Easing’, known otherwise from central bank monetary policy, is given an entirely new meaning in the context of reprocessing unfortunate past experiences. Self-exploration is given a programmed sequence of steps and techniques which are called Consciousness Exploration Routes which culminate in an approach to unity consciousness. The final part of the book shows how a heightened consciousness would translate over into life and introduces concepts of integral beingness and integral thinking.
