Maeve Merritt chafes at the rigid rules at her London boarding school for “Upright Young Ladies.” When punishment forces her to sort through the trash, she finds a sardine tin that houses a foul-tempered djinni with no intention of submitting to a schoolgirl as his master. Soon an orphan boy from the charitable home next door, a mysterious tall man in ginger whiskers, a disgruntled school worker, and a take-no-prisoners business tycoon are in hot pursuit of Maeve and her magical discovery.

There is no bigger mystery, nothing more compelling than the desire to know about "life after life". Jon Mundy, the respected longtime teacher and interpreter of A Course in Miracles, now investigates that enigma using insights from the course on mortality, death, and the afterlife. Mundy discusses facing death and learning to let go, the ephemeral nature of the physical body and the eternal reality of the mind, and the reawakening of our Spirit as the one true home.

I'm so glad that I didn't listen to the negative reviewers. This is a book for A Course In Miracles students. If you are ready for it, this book will call to you. You will not judge it because you don't like the author's voice. You will not criticize that it wasn't what you thought it should be. Rather, you will relish in ever touching, wise, and beautiful word as your heart fills with emotion. There is so much wisdom in this book that I am sure I will want to listen to it a few times to soak it all up.

If you have been a student of ACIM for a while and have done your work, you will likely be ready for this book. And you will be glad you found it.

Thank you Jon Mundy, for your intimate account of your friendships, as well as your personal experiences you share in this book.
In gratitude.

I could not stand to listen to this audio for more than 10 minutes. This narrator is often used for cheesy motivational audiobooks. He reads WAY WAY too fast which makes the contents of the book's content indigestible. He also sounds much like a robot that has no inflection or need to take a simple breath. We all process information our own way so listen to a sample first before you spend your money or credit on this one. Personally, I will now completely avoid all books performed by Jason McCoy.

Jesus, Buddha, and other wisdom masters understood how to love unconditionally - and reminded us that this is in fact our natural state of being. In Fearless Love, Renard invites you to courageously unlearn the habits of the ego and experience life like the great spiritual masters - in eternal harmony with all of humanity and God.

What can I say here to help anyone trying to decide on Gary Renard's book Fearless Love? I had tried reading one of Gary's books a couple years ago and for some reason I didn't relate to him at the time and never finished the book. I moved on to read and listen to other ACIM speakers/teachers which I felt more connected to. Since then I have been doing ACIM daily for almost 4 years now. I really wanted to come back to give Gary's teachings another look since I knew I had changed quite a bit since beginning ACIM. The Title Fearless Love drew me in and after procrastinating several weeks, I finally started listening without attachments or expectations. What I got was a wonderful listen and a heart full of love. I guess I was ready this time. If this book calls to you, maybe you're ready too. Enjoy!!

So many of us spend so much time enmeshed in other people's problems, trying to solve or change them, that we don't really know where we end and they begin. Not reacting to people or situations that provoke us is not an easy skill to develop. It takes practice and conviction that not reacting, not increasing the drama, doesn't mean we don't care. On the contrary, we are freed to show genuine love and care only when we can detach from the knee-jerk need to fix, solve, rescue, or control.

Would you listen to Let Go Now: Embracing Detachment again? Why?

I will likely listen to this audio book many times over until its contents become second nature to me.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Let Go Now: Embracing Detachment?

There is so much valuable information. I had only suspected that codependency played a part in my unhappiness in relationships. This book turned the lights on fully!

Which character – as performed by Kristin Allison – was your favorite?

I do not care for the narration. Her voice is almost robotic. No warmth.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Let Go Now: Embracing Detachment?

What is most exciting is that I now know that I don't have to be that way. I can be carefree and happy and let go. I can choose relationships that don't add to codependency. I can heal. This is all doable information.

What if you went to the mailbox one day and received a letter from God asking you to host a dinner - in God's honor? Award-winning author, composer, and lyricist Rayme Sciaroni shares the irresistible story of Jenny, a woman in her early 50s who receives such an invitation. Jenny is requested to invite anyone she chooses as well as a person she doesn't know very well to the momentous event. The guests are urged to each bring a dish they would like for God to taste and to wear clothing they would like for God to see them in.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Everything about this book was flat out annoying. The author's voice and speaking style was NOT at all pleasant. The story was boring and annoying. Story tries WAY too hard to be inspirational but is just shallow and lacks imagination and substance. Listening to this book is equivalent to standing in line all day while a child cries...Torture! How did this book even get published??

Would you ever listen to anything by Rayme Scarioni again?

Never!

Would you be willing to try another one of Rayme Scarioni’s performances?

Never!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The initial idea was something that could have been good with some imagination.

Is there a science to love? In this groundbreaking audiobook, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory - the most advanced relationship science in existence today - can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many best-selling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships - until now.

Odd Title

Overall

Reviewed: 07-17-08

The title of this book was misleading to me. I had just read Echo Bodine's book about heaven called "Echos of the Soul", (which I highly recommend) and was looking for another book about heaven that I could listen to. Since Echo Bodine mentions James Van Praagh in her book I naturaly gravitated towards this book. Unfortunately for me it was not what I expected nor what I was looking for. It is a book about his psychic abilities. It is also a book that explains the basics about everthing to do with mediumship (communication with the dead), developing psychic abilities in yourself, auras, aura protection, the supernatural, etc. If you are looking for Supernatural Studies 101, this is the book for you. Enjoy!

Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.

Less is more

Reviewed: 06-25-08

I have been a fan of Wayne Dyer for many years and own several of his books. This book I do NOT recommend. The Tao Te Ching is a beautiful spiritual book and in Dr. Dyer's interpretation the beauty and essence is lost. Less is more Dr. Dyer. If you want to listen to a pure and inspiring version of the Tao, I highly recommend Steven Mitchell's book. The title is "Tao Te Ching: A New English Version". When I listen and reflect on Steven Mitchell's version I feel a lump in my throat as I do when I hear any pure wisdom. This is a gauge for me that what I am listening to is connecting with my higher self. When I listen to Wayne Dyer's version, I feel my mind becoming cluttered and confused. I hope this book does not spoil the Tao for those who are hearing it for the first time. Don't stop here. This is not the purest form of interpretation. Seek out the Tao in other interpretations and when you connect you will know and when you know you will be enriched with its essence. Only then will you BE one with the Tao.
