How genetic engineering could irreversibly change our world.

Decisions we make today on genetic engineering may well have irreversible repercussions for the future of all life on Earth. The effects of GE have the potential to be cumulatively catastrophic, and to affect all future generations.

Once the genetic genie is out of the bottle (or the lab), there’s no putting it back. Yet it is difficult for ordinary people to evaluate or even take seriously because its effects are, at present, by and large invisible without a microscope. 

Genetic engineering is a biological time-bomb, and the fuse is already ticking…

The winner of a prestigious ecology literature award offered by Fordham Univerity, USA.

"This is not just a technical book about the horrors of GE, seen in isolation from other horrors, but a highly erudite and superbly written critique of the ‘modern Western scientific mentality’"

— Edward Goldsmith, founder of The Ecologist

“We can’t change the past and we can’t predict the future, so we must always live in the now and appreciate it for all its glory. The ‘Now’ is really all that exists, Ayla. Some people spend their whole life waiting to start living. The time is now!”

Jennifer McIntosh has woven valuable insights into this enchanting story of nine-year old Ayla and her elderly neighbour, Pearl. Through the teenage years, Pearl shares her wisdom and uses her cherished collection of cushions as metaphors to gently share poignant lessons on love, faith, hope loss and other first encounters, as Ayla ‘comes of age’.

The Spell of Morpheus by Julia Sutherland

Brand: RSVP Publishing

Product Code: 9780958218238

$19.95 Ex Tax: $19.95
The Spell of Morpheus – a story of women and drugs in one New Zealand town – was adapted by author Julia Sutherland 
from her psychology thesis while she was a PhD student at Otago University.

She describes the novel as “a journey in and out of a fairytale”, and she based the book around the extended interviews that she made with 10 women from the Methadone Clinic.

The subtext of the novel is concerned with the incongruities of current drug legislation, and the morality and hypocrisy of what’s legal and what’s not.
Based on author Julia Sutherlandís PhD thesis about the drug scene,especially as it affects mothers and their parenting, and interviews with women recruited from the Methadone Clinic, the book aims to explore and make sense of the drug culture as a mythical world.

Vision of Maui by Joyce Paraone Hemana

Product Code: 9780958218276

Matakite-o-Maui is in fact a very ancient system of divination for prophesy used by the Maori seers and prophets. It is created around Maui-tikitiki-a-Te Ranga, otherwise known as Maui, a demi-god, a hero by his many feats, and also an ancient ancestor to Maori.

Accounts of Maui’s life are portrayed in the form of twelve myths which describe the deeds and useful devices he created to benefit mankind, and these are portrayed in the divination rite using beautifully illustrated Tarot cards.

“In having spent a great part of my life undertaking prophesy readings for others using mainly the conventional tarot cards, I was naturally very excited to discover a traditional Maori form of divination, and even more keen to revive it into a usable form for application into today’s world,” writes Joyce Paraone Hemana.

"Hemana revives the ancient form of divination for modern times to use for seeking direction, guidance and prophesy. You can either choose the traditional method of sea shells, or use the set of 12 pictorial cards, representing the myths of Maui (which come with the book), beautifully illustrated by Jane Rushton."

Yoga of Heart by Mark Whitwell

Brand: RSVP Publishing

Product Code: 9780958218214

$19.95 Ex Tax: $19.95

Hatha Yoga is tantric practice. While Vedantic Brahmans – the caretakers and contemporary proponents of Yoga –borrowed tantric practices to develop their religious aspirations to transcend this world, they denied the essential purpose of Yoga to link the mind to the wonder of our own condition.

Tantric traditions also confused Yoga with religion in their attempt to conquer nature or to go ‘beyond’. Meanwhile, the idea of ‘tantric sex’ has become popular without its context and catalyst – an actual yoga practice designed for each person.

Mark Whitwell puts a spotlight on these issues to restore and efficient and complete Yoga for everybody.

"Written with rare eloquence, detail, wisdom and humour, Yoga of Heart is a profound and irresistible invitation to infuse our yoga practice with passion, joy and heart."

— Micheline Berry, Founder Zen Dancing, Yoga teacher Sacred Movement Yoga

"Clearly articulated with passion, compassion, extensive knowledge and warm humour, Mark Whitwell compels students and practitioners at any level to experience the joy of Yoga as empowering, life-affirming and liberating."

— Susan Swan, Director Positive Yoga and Hamsa Yoga.
