Rebalance your body’s vital energies
Chakras are spinning wheels of energy in the body’s aura. When they’re balanced and in harmony, we feel full of vitality and in peak condition. But when they become unbalanced, hampering the free flow of body energy, we quickly become tired and ‘out of sorts’.
Here, leading expert Pauline Wills introduces the chakras as part of the ancient Indian healing system and yoga philosophy. Discover where the seven major centres are located, how they are linked, and how they influence the body’s well-being, before moving on to the practical exercises, ranging from colour work, reflexology, yoga postures and breathwork to meditation and mantras, to balance each chakra in turn. A regular chakra workout will help you improve your spiritual, emotional and physical well-being, as well as increase your energy levels to help you face your busy day.

John Matthews and Cilla Conway
The first tarot deck inspired by the Byzantine Empire, this sumptuous and evocative package will appeal to all those with an interest in history, ancient kingdoms, iconography and history of art.
The Byzantine world, which lasted from 330 to 1453 CE, combined the elegance and power of Rome with the opulence and splendor of the Orient. This combination brought about richness in the world of art, literature, and spirituality that has seldom been equaled. Yet it also has a mysterious resonance, and it is to this world of emperors and empresses, saints and sinners, faith and miracles that the creators of this dazzling new tarot have turned, capturing the Byzantine vision, magic, and enchantment.
