Approaching Extinction


Dr. Ian Prattis

"Each chapter is a shard of Broken Glass. Each one leads us closer to the revelation that we can make a difference in the Climate Crisis if we band together and act now.  - Windy Lynn Harris 

Claudiu Murgan, author: Ian Prattis’s previous books - Failsafe: Saving the Earth From Ourselves; New Planet New World, and Our World is Burning – should be part of our schools’ curriculum. Shattered Earth is no exception... abrasive message... the existing ecological balance is broken and only a sudden halt of destructive actions fuelled by greed and power can dim down the effects. A must-read for all who care about their legacy."

84 Very Short Stories of Wit & Wisdom


Ross Ulysses Munroe


There are the little events in life. And there are the significant events in life. Individually, they all seem to have their place. But what happens when we take them together as one? 


A unified picture begins to emerge, much like an impressionist painting, a mandala, a lenticular image, an autostereogram, yielding up an underlying theme that sews one's experiences into a deeper narrative, rendering a profile of the myths we are living out.  


It is the Rorschach analysis of our souls. And it has no name.

 Louise Evans


Using Hypnotherapy, Spiritualism and Conventional Treatments to Help You Feel Stronger

“Cancer taught me to slow down and appreciate what I have. It made it very clear life is a gift and should not be taken for granted. Nearly dying prompted me to fully live.  I hope that on reading my book you will explore hypnotherapy and the other treatments that helped me and may help you as well to become mentally and physically stronger and  capable of truly enjoying life. You’ll also read the inspiring stories of my fellow cancer patients and perhaps find solace and comfort as they did in embracing unconventional treatments that offer  benefits. It’s time to reprioritize our lives, focus on what is truly important to   us and enjoy life to the fullest.  We are survivors.”  - Louise Evans
