    Title: Art of Making Memories: How to Create & Remember Happy Moments
    Author: WIKING MEIK

    What's the actual secret to happiness? Great memories! Meik Wiking--happiness researcher and New York Times bestselling author of The Little Book of Hygge and The Little Book of Lykke--shows us how to create memories that make life sweet in this charming audiobook.Do you remember your first kiss? The day you graduated? Your favorite vacation? Or the best meal you ever had?

    Memories are the cornerstones of our identity, shaping who we are, how we act, and how we feel. In his work as a happiness researcher, Meik Wiking has learned that people are happier if they hold a positive, nostalgic view of the past. But how do we make and keep the memories that bring us lasting joy?

    The Art of Making Memories examines how mental images are made, stored, and recalled in our brains, as well as the "art of letting go"--why we tend to forget certain moments to make room for deeper, more meaningful ones. Meik uses data, interviews, global surveys, and real-life experiments to explain the nuances of nostalgia and the different ways we form memories around our experiences and recall them--revealing the power that a "first time" has on our recollections, and why a piece of music, a smell, or a taste can unexpectedly conjure a moment from the past. Ultimately, Meik shows how we each can create warm memories that will stay with us for years.

    Combining his signature charm with Scandinavian forthrightness, and featuring "Happy Memory Tips," The Art of Making Memories is an inspiration meditation and practical guide filled with ideas to help us make the memories that will bring us joy throughout our lives.

    Title: Art of Rest: How to Find Respite in the Modern Age

    Drawing on brand new research, this is an examination of rest and why it matters from Radio 4's voice of psychology.
    Today busyness has become a badge of honour. We want to say we're busy, yet at the same time we feel exhausted. Instead we should start taking rest seriously as a method of self-care and this book can help us to work out how.

    The Art of Rest draws on ground-breaking research Claudia Hammond collaborated on - 'The Rest Test' - the largest global survey into rest ever undertaken, which was completed by 18,000 people across 135 different countries. Much of value has been written about sleep, but rest is different; it is how we unwind, calm our minds and recharge our bodies. And, as the survey revealed, how much rest you get is directly linked to your sense of well-being.

    Counting down through the top ten activities which people find most restful, Hammond explains why rest matters, examines the science behind the results to establish what really works and offers a roadmap for a new, more restful and balanced life.

    It has been ten years since the publication of The Biology of Belief, Bruce Lipton's seminal book on the relationship between mind and body that changed the way we think about our lives, our health, and our planet. During that time, research in this field has grown exponentially - Lipton's groundbreaking experiments have now been endorsed by more than a decade of rigorous scientific study.

    In this greatly expanded edition, Lipton, a former medical school professor and research scientist, explores his own experiments and those of other leading-edge scientists that have unraveled in ever greater detail how truly connected the mind, body, and spirit are. It is now widely recognized that genes and DNA do not control our biology. Instead, they are controlled by signals from outside the cell, including energetic messages emanating from our thoughts.

    This profoundly hopeful synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics puts the power to create a healthy, joyous life back in our own hands. When we transform our conscious and subconscious thoughts, we transform our lives, and in the process help humanity evolve to a new level of understanding and peace.

    If all the world is indeed a stage and men and women merely players, then The Bloom is the play. Life's billion year soliloquy and man's supporting role is told in five parts, the five acts of a play, and the five stages of a growing flower:

    Part I The Garden -- the origins of the universe prepare the soil for the evolution of man

    Part II The Seed -- the discovery of agriculture and the seed of civilization

    Part III The Roots -- one man's quest from Persia to India to seek the mysteries of mathematics

    Part IV The Synthesis -- one woman's search for light, truth, and redemption in a ruined world

    Part V The Bloom -- the blossoming of the journey to the very ends of time

    In the ancient tradition of epic poetry, The Bloom is told in a lyrical series of nearly 3,000 lines of poetry; inter-rhyming couplets, a unbroken stream of double-helix verse, the genetic rhyming code of Life's immense vanquishing of Time.

    It is ultimately a spiritual journey, both individual and collective.

    Title: Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are
    Author: WATTS ALAN

    In The Book, Alan Watts provides us with a much-needed answer to the problem of personal identity, distilling and adapting the Hindu philosophy of Vedanta.

    At the root of human conflict is our fundamental misunderstanding of who we are. The illusion that we are isolated beings, unconnected to the rest of the universe, has led us to view the "outside" world with hostility, and has fueled our misuse of technology and our violent and hostile subjugation of the natural world. To help us understand that the self is in fact the root and ground of the universe, Watts has crafted a revelatory primer on what it means to be human--and a mind-opening manual of initiation into the central mystery of existence.

    Title: Cardinal: The Rise and Fall of George Pell

    George Pell is the most recognisable face of the Australian Catholic Church. He was the Ballarat boy with the film-star looks who studied at Oxford and rose through the ranks to become the Vatican's indispensable 'Treasurer'. As an outspoken defender of church orthodoxy, 'Big George's' ascendancy within the clergy was remarkable and seemingly unstoppable.

    The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse has brought to light horrific stories about sexual abuse of the most vulnerable and provoked public anger at the extent of the cover-up. George Pell has always portrayed himself as the first man in the Church to tackle the problem. But questions about what the Cardinal knew, and when, have persisted.

    The nation's most prominent Catholic is now the subject of a police investigation into allegations spanning decades that he too abused children. Louise Milligan is the only Australian journalist who has been privy to the most intimate stories of complainants.

    She pieces together a series of disturbing pictures of the Cardinal's knowledge and his actions, many of which are being told here for the first time.

    Conspiracy or cover-up? Cardinaluncovers uncomfortable truths about a culture of sexual entitlement, abuse of trust and how ambition can silence evil.

    Title: Catholic Boys

    The Catholic Boys” is a new book by author Mike Ledingham detailing the profound impact of sexual abuse of Mike and two younger brothers by the same Catholic priest.
    The three Ledingham boys tell their stories of going from being happy, feisty kids to troubled teenagers who became angry, abusing (and self-abusing) men, with consequences for their families. Their plight was only recognised by the Catholic Church after a tortuous series of negotiations.
    The stories of Michael, Gerry and Chris are introduced by their older sister Mary, who provides readers with background on each with love and admiration for their survival. Their stories detail in heart breaking clarity the wide-reaching impacts of their childhood sexual abuse.
    Although the boys did finally receive a settlement from the Church some years ago, they feel the Church has never acknowledged its failings or the wrongdoing by the priest. The Ledingham family was a staunchly religious family in which the authority of the Church was never questioned, making it harder for the three brothers to reconcile their beliefs with what happened to them at the hands of their parish priest.
    What brought the brothers together on it was finding out many years later that they had each suffered, with the two older boys shocked to learn they had been unable to protect their younger brother.
    Mike describes the book as follows: “It’s humorous, cynical but also sad. You’ll get a laugh, but you might get a cry too

    Title: Circle of the Way A Concise History of Zen from the Buddha to the Modern World

    Zen Buddhism has a storied history--Bodhidharma sitting in meditation in a cave for nine years; a would-be disciple cutting off his own arm to get the master's attention; the proliferating schools and intense Dharma combat of the Tang and Song Dynasties; Zen nuns and laypeople holding their own against patriarchal lineages; the appearance of new masters in the Zen schools of Korea, Japan, Vietnam, and later the Western world. In The Circle of the Way, Zen practitioner and popular religion writer Barbara O'Brien brings clarity to this huge swath of history by charting a middle way between Zen's traditional lore and the findings of modern historical scholarship. In a clear and often funny style, O'Brien parses fact from fiction while always attending to the greatest interest of contemporary practitioners--the development of Zen doctrine and practice as a living tradition across cultures and centuries.

    Title: Compelling Reason
    Author: LEWIS C. S.

    'You can only find out the rights and wrongs by Reasoning - never by being rude about your opponent's psychology.' For C. S. Lewis, reason and logic are the sensible way to approach faith and ethics. Much of the 20th century's ills are caused by ill-founded beliefs and opinions.

    Lewis's original approach remains as vital today as ever. He is able to take the most convoluted subject, turn it side on and shed bright illumination on it. To be able to see along things rather than at them - just like a beam of sunlight that invades the darkness of a toolshed - is, to Lewis, the way to understanding.

    Written variously between 1940 and 1962, this collection of essays represents the best of Lewis's considerable wisdom on the great ethical and theological concerns of the day.
