Peter Jailall, teacher, storyteller and poet, expresses great passion for the English language and for the quality of life of all Canadians. With this, his first published volume of poetry, he takes a much-deserved place alongside Canada's most significant writers of colour. ""Peter's poems told me stories or rather pulled me into scenes where I became the actor seeing Toronto and her people in a way new to me. Peter's empathy for people and his clear view of what deserves anger don't contradict each other but sharpen the stories."" - Joan Vinall Cox teaches reading at Sheridan College. ""Peter has shared his poems with me privately and I have been in audiences of teachers as he read his poems out loud. In both situations he strikes an emotional impact with his words and messages."" - Larry Swartz, Educator.

A breakthrough guide for cancer patients on using the mind to treat the body, from a pioneer in complementary medicine Recent research has shown that the mind can make a tremendous difference in not only the daily experience of living with cancer but also in the potential for overcoming it. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Martin L. Rossman-hailed as "one of the greatest healers of our generation" by Rachel Naomi Remen-shows cancer patients how to use imagery in specific ways that can help them in their fight against cancer. Imagery is a natural, efficient way of storing and processing information, and one that has powerful effects on both emotional states and physiology. And while imagery is not a substitute for medical, surgical, or other physical approaches to cancer therapy, scientific studies have proven that it complements and enhances those treatments in many important ways. In this first book of its kind, Rossman provides specific ways to use imaging in fighting cancer. Praise for Guided Imagery for Self-Healing: "This superb collection of imagery techniques is a landmark contribution to the emerging field of behavioral medicine." -Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind

This book investigates the development of Afro-German literature in the context of the African American experience and shows the decisive role of literature for the emergence of the Afro-German Movement. Various Afro-German literary and cultural initiatives, which began in the 1980s, arose as a response to the experience of being marginalized - to the point of invisibility - within a dominant Eurocentric culture that could not bring the notions of "Black" and "German" together in a meaningful way. The book is a significant contribution to the understanding of German literature as multi-ethnic and of the the transatlantic networks operating in the African Diasporas.

Intentional Healing is a story of transformation. It is the story of a conservative Western-educated woman confronted with debilitating and bizarre symptoms that no one can explain. No one, that is, until she meets a diagnostic detective, Dr. Leo Galland in New York City, who refers her to a pioneer in environmental medicine, Dr. William J. Rea, in Dallas, Texas. He, in turn, refers her to Deborah Singleton, founder and director of A Healing Place, and her healing team, who introduce her to the possibility of healing from within. With their guidance, she begins the process of expanding her consciousness and understanding the real roots of illness. Her journey, which included initiation into Reiki channeling and healing from Navajo hataali, takes her from dark nights of the soul to not only freedom from illness but also the discovery of her own healing abilities. In her energy practice in Santa Fe, New Mexico, she now teaches others the healing approaches that brought her to wellness and spiritual growth.

Tod Inlet has been a place of refuge for hundreds, if not thousands, of years, but few are aware of its history. This tiny fjord, less than a half hour from downtown Victoria, is part of Gowlland/Tod Provincial Park and is accessed by a forested path beside Tod Creek. For centuries it was the home of the WSÁNEĆ (Saanich) people, providing everything for their spiritual and material sustenance. In the early part of the twentieth century a small company town grew on its shores. Houses, a railway, a clay mill, a factory and a dock for steamships were built for the Vancouver Portland Cement Company. When the cement company had exhausted the limestone quarries, Jennie Butchart began her ambitious cultivation project, Butchart Gardens. Developers made plans for marinas, golf courses and hotels to be built on this quiet inlet, but local citizens, environmentalists, scientists and Native people fought back. Almost all the buildings have been demolished, but concrete and iron are not easily disposed of, and reminders of the past confront the walker everywhere: shell middens spill into the sea, fruit trees and garden flowers mingle with indigenous plants, and century-old industrial relics litter the creek, the forest and the Inlet. But despite the ravages of the past century, Tod Inlet retains a spirit of peace and renewal. In other environments this clash of the man-made with the natural can create an unsettling mix. Here, time has allowed nature to begin the healing and has morphed into a present that speaks softly of its past. Gwen Curry takes us on her walks down to the Inlet. Her beautiful photographs capture the spirit of present-day Tod Inlet, while her sensitive prose gives us glimpses into the Inlet’s natural, industrial and Native history.
