    Source Open Your Mind, Change Your Life
    'The Source marries universal truths with scientific rigor for a persuasive, important exploration of The Law of Attraction.' - Deepak Chopra MD

    ' Like the self-help success The Secret, but cooler and more sciencey.' - Evening Standard


    Life-changing opportunities pass us by every day - now we can train our minds to seize them

    Self-help books like The Secret promise that we can tap into the 'law of attraction' to control our destiny, simply by changing our thoughts. If we strip away the mystique, at the heart of this idea is a fundamental truth that is backed up by the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience- most of the things we want from life - health, happiness, wealth, love - are governed by our ability to think, feel and act; in other words, by our brain.

    Dr Tara Swart, a neuroscientist and executive coach with a background in psychiatry, is convinced beyond all doubt of our ability to alter how our brains work - and transform our lives. In The Source, she draws on the latest cognitive science and her experience coaching highly successful people to reveal the secret to mastering our minds.

    With a four-step plan to awaken the power of your brain, this unique guide to life combines science and spirituality in a way that is open-minded and practical. Discover how to-
    - Challenge 'autopilot' thinking and rewire your brain's pathways to fulfil your potential
    - Manifest the things you want by directing your energy towards your deepest values and ambitions
    - Harness the power of visualisation to prime your brain to grab opportunities and take control of your future
    - Attack life with confidence, dispel fear and avoid negative thinking

    Unlock your potential today - you are just four steps away from building a new confident you.

    Spark How to free your brain from technology to ignite your creativity
    Crammed with practical exercises for anyone who wants to reclaim the power of spacing out' - Gretchen Rubin, author of #1 New York Times Bestseller The Happiness Project

    It's time to move 'doing nothing' to the top of your to-do list

    Have you ever noticed how you have your best ideas when doing the dishes or staring out the window? It's because when your body goes on autopilot, your brain gets busy connecting ideas and solving problems.

    However in the modern world it often feels as though we have completely removed boredom from our lives; we are addicted to our phones, we reply to our emails twenty-four hours a day, tweet as we watch TV, watch TV as we commute, check Facebook as we walk and Instagram while we eat. Constant stimulation has become our default mode.

    In this easy to follow, practical book, award-winning journalist Manoush Zomorodi explores the connection between boredom and original thinking, and will show you how to ditch your screens and start embracing time spent doing nothing. Spark will help you unlock the way to becoming your most productive and creative self.

  • Stay Woke A Meditation Guide for the Rest of Us
    Stay Woke A Meditation Guide for the Rest of Us
    A simple, no-nonsense guide to change your life and take hold of your dreams

    "I have a confession," writes author Justin Michael Williams. "This is not really a meditation book."

    Yes, Williams is going to teach you everything you need to know about meditation-but if you came looking for a typical book on mindfulness, you're in the wrong place.

    Stay Woke is FOR THE PEOPLE. All people, of all backgrounds deserve to have access to the information they need to change their lives. And if you grew up in struggle-overcoming homophobia, anxiety, sexism, depression, poverty, toxic masculinity, racism, or trauma-you need a different type of meditation . . . one that doesn't pretend the struggle doesn't exist.

    Now, Williams introduces Freedom Meditation-a distinct approach that addresses disillusionment, social justice, overwhelm, and shame; strengthens intuition; cuts through self-sabotaging programming; and empowers you to make better decisions. Whether you've tried meditation but it never sticks, or you've heard about it but never gave it a shot, this 10-step guide will cut through the noise and teach you how to create a daily meditation ritual that fits in with your messy, modern life. Stay Woke is a book that breaks barriers and encourages people of all identities, colors, shapes, ages, and economic backgrounds to claim their innate and limitless potential.

  • Stop Surviving Start Fighting
    Stop Surviving Start Fighting
    Jazz Thornton first attempted to take her own life at the age of 12. Multiple attempts followed and she spent time in psychiatric wards and under medical supervision as she rode the rollercoaster of depression and anxiety through her teenage years - yet the attempts continued.

    Find out what Jazz learned about how her negative thought patterns came to be, and how she turned those thoughts - and her life - around. Who and what helped, and what didn't help. The insights she gives will help create greater understanding of those grappling with mental illness, and those around them who desperately want to help.

    Jazz went on to attend film school, and to co-found Voices of Hope, a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping those with mental health issues and show them there is a way forward. She creates online content to provide hope and help.

    Her first video Dear Suicidal Me has had over 80 million views all around the world. She went on to create Jessica's Tree, a web series that follows the 24 hours between a friend, Jess, going missing and the discovery of her body. It provides insights into Jessica's struggles, to help people better understand those suffering from depression. https-//www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QFU_qg7Msk Jessica's Tree was viewed more than 230,000 times in the two months following its release in March 2019 and immediately began winning international recognition and awards, including the Huawei Mate30 Pro New Zealand Television Awards 2019 Best Web Series.
    The process and the delicate decisions that had to be made to create Jessica's Tree have themselves been documented in a film about Jazz called The Girl on the Bridge, due for release early in 2020.
