inspiration: Joan's picks

People ask all the time what books and resouces we recommend. So we are introducing you to a series of practitioner, employee, and perhaps some customer picks! We will have these picks on hand or will order them for you in a timely fashion.

Next in our series are Joan Stokes' picks! Joan is an animal communicator and co-owner of the store. These are two of her favorites at this time. Enjoy! 

Altruistic Armadillos, Zenlike Zebras: Understanding the World's Most Intriguing Animals  

Altruistic Armadillos, Zenlike Zebras: Understanding the World’s Most Intriguing Animals
Author: Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson

This book is great for all ages! I ALWAYS recommend Ted Andrews book, Animal Speak, for any interested in animal spirit guides because it, quite frankly, is still the best book on understanding these guides. When you want to move further into the understanding, I recommend getting to know animals on a deeper level. Altruistic Armadillos, Zenlike Zebras does just that. Jeffrey Masson has written several books which deal with the aspect of animal emotions and the relationships animals have with people and with each other. Because animal spirits are connected to our esoteric selves, they must be understood on many levels. We must do more than have the surface information to bring them into our lives so they may assist us as they are meant to. This book is a wonderful beginner’s guide into a greater understanding of their world.

Grace and Gratitude Renewed  

Grace and Gratitude Renewed
Artist: Olivia Newton-John

Ten years of listening to music in this arena brings a myriad of instruments and voices to one’s ears. I have enjoyed many of the fabulous artists out there. I was beginning to wonder; however, if I would ever come across a CD that I enjoyed more than, or just as much, as Walela (Rita Coolidge & Relatives). I found such a CD a few short years ago, called Grace and Gratitude, at a Walgreen’s. It was being sold there to raise money for Breast Cancer. I cannot say enough about this CD! It is the music to listen to when sad or depressed, happy and centered, sharing with friends, doing ritual, balancing chakras, or just remembering the answers to so many why questions. It is guaranteed to brighten anyone’s day! It has been renewed and has a little more music than the original. In my opinion they should have left the cover art alone but it isn’t the cover that makes the music. Buy this CD. You will not be disappointed!
