  Life Is Divine Play by Mark Johnson 


Life Is Divine Play: My Life and Training with Enlightened Masters
(144 pages Paperback)
By Mark Johnson

Life is Divine Play is a memoir that shares one man's forty-year spiritual journey that began in the Eastern United States and ultimately led him to the Orient where he met his principle Daoist master and teacher.

Mark Johnson begins his inspiring life story with details of his humble beginnings, growing up in a middle-class family in a small coal-mining town in Pennsylvania. He continues with his psychic and spiritual development in a Hindu ashram in Florida during the 1960s. After meditating with a famous Zen Buddhist in California, Johnson provides insight into his training with a powerful Daoist/Wizard in Taiwan and later in the wild and dangerous hills of Malibu, California. He, like so many of his generation, found his richest spiritual inspiration in Eastern philosophy and not only reveals the profound and valuable concepts he learned from his mentors, he includes ways to apply his insights to everyday life situations in a humorous and playful manner.

As Johnson shares the details from his incredible lifelong odyssey, he inspires and encourages others to seek a life of play where they too might find the same peace that he once sought and eventually found.

I Ching: The Book of Changes and the Unchanging Truth By Master Hua-Ching Ni

I Ching: The Book of Changes and the Unchanging Truth
By Master Hua-Ching Ni


There are many versions of the I Ching. This one by Master Ni, is our favorite and the one we most often recommend. The I Ching system was created by the ancients from their careful observations of nature. The sixty-four hexagrams found in the I Ching can be used as a predictive tool. At progressively more subtle levels it is a tool that leads to understanding the Tao, the unfolding patterns of the universe, the interdynamics and interdependency of these patterns, and how one can live one's life in harmony with them. When one consults the I Ching, the hexagram gives the general background of the situation, while the lines indicate the correct way in which to handle the specific circumstance. 667 pages Hardbound
