Katherine: A Woman of Vision: Learning From One Of History’s Most Gifted Spiritual Teachers

Dallas, TX – Diane Pomerance, Ph.D. met renowned spiritual teacher Katherine Hayward through a friend in Los Angeles when she was 28 and Hayward was 79. Their connection was immediate and Dr. Pomerance became her student and ultimately her protégé. The wisdom, spiritual vision and philosophy imparted by Hayward mesmerized Dr. Pomerance and she simply knew that Hayward’s life story was one that needed sharing. Katherine: A Woman of Vision (Polaire Publishing) is set to release in early Fall 2015.

Hayward was born in Wales in 1899 and lived in the UK against the backdrop of World War I and World War II. She had an out-of-body experience where she met “angelic beings” when she was merely 7 years old. The angels advised her to return to her physical body, that she had much work to do on earth. When she awakened she spoke with a full, mature adult voice, and knew the future. Quite amazingly, she made many predictions including the sinking of the Titanic. She also instinctively knew the truth about people and when they were lying, and the outcome of political elections.

Hayward was in further communication with Spirit Beings at the age of 20 for a 6-month period in which she witnessed paranormal activity and psychic phenomena. Even more important, she learned about the purposefulness and significance of Life and Death. Through her psychic abilities, she brought great comfort and solace to many people who had lost loved ones by speaking/communicating with the so-called “dead” and proving to bereaved that life continues after death.

Diane Pomerance, Ph.D. has dedicated her life to animal and environmental welfare and to spiritual research and exploration. Sharing the story of renowned spiritual teacher and mentor Katherine Hayward has been a labor of love. Additionally, she has authored eight books and is best known for her books about animal companionship, specifically the human-animal bond and grief recovery.

Tempting the Devil in the Name of God: Resetting Destiny’s Course to Conquer Addiction

Ocala, FL – More than 23.5 million Americans abuse drugs or alcohol, and the fact is that addiction destroys lives. Just ask Howard Beckman. Beckman was the son of a Philadelphia lawyer and was fortunate to have a wide array of opportunities at arm’s length. Sadly, he was an out-of-control teenager and his bad decisions led him down the path of drug addiction and international drug smuggling, which ultimately landed him in a Thai prison. With all hardships, there are lessons to be learned and Beckman is sharing his journey in his newly-released memoir, Tempting the Devil in the Name of God: The Heavy Hand of Fate.

Beckman’s travels were extensive, and with every stop around the globe there were setbacks. At times his story reads like a psychological thriller, and at others, as a mysterious journey into exotic lands and people. He bounced from one extreme to another from prison and corruption to finding spiritual peace. His journey is one of survival and anyone who has directly or indirectly experienced the horrors of drug addiction will find his memoir meaningful on a variety of levels.

“It’s my hope that by sharing how I survived my darkest days, it will somehow inspire someone who has lost their way, or even their will to go on,” says Beckman. “When you hit rock bottom, the only way to go is up. Sometimes you have to just let go of the past to find your own path in life.”

Howard Beckman is a writer, speaker and spiritual counselor. He is an expert in the ancient sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda.

In the Line of Fire: Here’s How To Stop Violence At Every Turn

Louisville, KY – Living in a peaceful world, free from hatred, bigotry, bullying and violence may seem like an impossible journey. Violence surrounds us and overwhelmingly dominates our lives through crime-based TV shows, video games, and social media – not to mention our daily news feeds which include hate crimes, bullying, school shootings and domestic violence. According to Jan Arnow, author of In the Line of Fire: Raising Kids in a Violent World, none of these examples of violence stands alone – they are all connected along a continuum of violence. In this accessible book, Arnow makes the connections that have been widely ignored. She says, we can stop the violence, and she shows us how to collectively achieve this with more than 400 actionable tips.

The statistics reveal a shocking truth. Every day in the United States:

Boys who witness domestic violence are twice as likely to be an abuser as an adult
Seven children or teenagers are killed by firearms
187 children are arrested for violent crimes
1,837 children are identified as abused or neglected, and
2,857 high school students drop out.

“As a result of receiving poor social mentorship and not knowing how to resolve conflicts, there are more than 61,000 youth residing in juvenile detention centers or correctional facilities throughout the US,” says Arnow. “Abusive behaviors often initiate at home, and children who are abused become the abusers.”

No stranger to violence herself, Arnow knows personally the horrors of growing up in an abusive household. For the first time, she reveals the driving force that landed her on her lifelong path to create peace for future generations. This heavily researched book provides a balance of case studies, true stories and actionable tips, and is a perfect resource for parents, teachers, counselors, law enforcement and clergymen.

About the Author
Jan Arnow is the founder and executive director of Innovations in Peacemaking International, and is an internationally recognized lecturer and authority on multicultural education, violence abatement, prejudice reduction, creativity, and leadership. She is a highly respected and award-winning author of nine books and scores of articles for a variety of national magazines. She is currently working on a teacher’s and community guide to In the Line of Fire: Raising Kids in a Violent World, and a new peace curriculum for schools, houses of worship, and neighborhood centers. She also travels to carry her violence abatement strategies to communities throughout the world.

Remembering Olympus: The Idea Of Other Lives And Other Worlds Challenges Our Belief Of Our Place In The Universe

Dallas, TX – ‘There are worlds within worlds and time is not what humans understand it to be.’ This prophetic first line in the first chapter of Remembering Olympus (Koehler Books) by Royce Murcherson is music to the ears of anyone who believes we must be on this earth for a reason greater than just an ordinary life! Remembering Olympus brings readers a new understanding of our place in the universe and our true potential.

Royce Murcherson hopes her memorable and inspiring book will challenge the reader’s perception of reality. Part mystery, part magical, this engaging story coaxes readers to question what our powerful purpose might be. A riveting story of life after life, twisted destinies, and the power of love and jealousy, the plot centers around Aaron Payne, a typical urban professional running away from a disadvantaged past.

As fate takes a hand in a chance meeting with a beautiful heiress, he doesn’t care about their many differences because he’s convinced she is the key to changing his life – until startling events begin to turn his life upside down. When his path crosses with an enigmatic publisher, the two become entangled in a gripping mystery as Aaron begins to remember pieces of another existence that will pull him into a maze of shifting time and past lives. In pursuit of ‘who he is,’ Aaron soon becomes the pursued…

Prophetic in tone, Remembering Olympus offers a broader understanding of what is behind the curtains we humans do not remember (but wonder about when memories cannot be explained away), and opens our minds to the possibility that maybe we can create our own reality through the power of our mind, introducing endless possibilities for anyone who has ever wondered if this is all there is to life.

Royce Murcherson holds a Ph.D. in English and is currently a professor of English in Dallas, Texas. She has taught American and African-American literature, creative writing, composition, business writing, and visual rhetoric for seventeen years. Her interests include the literary genre of magical realism, Eastern philosophy, and Jungian psychology. Royce has also spent several years in the business world and recently published an instructional book, The Guide to Persuasive Business Writing: A New Model that Gets Results, and is a guest writer on business writing and workplace etiquette for BOSS, a business and office systems support resource at Richland College.

An Opportunity To Rise Above The Ordinary: Remembering Olympus

Dallas, TX – Good news for all those who look around at their ordinary humdrum life: there is more. At the heart of Remembering Olympus (Koehler Books) by Royce Murcherson is the belief that one life is not your only life; love is real and eternal, and we are capable of creating our own reality through the sheer power of mind.

“We humans are capable of accomplishing magical things when we truly understand ourselves,” says author Royce Murcherson. “I wrote Remembering Olympus for people who want to broaden their understanding of the universe, our place in it, and our purpose for being here.”

Part mystery, part magical, Remembering Olympus is a story of ‘life after life,’ tangled destinies, and the creative power of love and jealousy. Aaron Payne is a typical urban professional running away from his impoverished past. Seemingly by coincidence, he meets Miranda Reed, a beautiful gentrified heiress. Though their relationship is awkward, he believes she is the key until unforeseen events throw his life into upheaval.

When his path crosses with an enigmatic publisher, Claire Vinson, they become entangled in a mystery as Aaron begins to remember pieces of another existence that pull him into a maze of shifting time and past lives.

Prophetic in tone, Remembering Olympus is a mystical revelation, peeling back the layers of certainty, challenging perceptions of reality, and asking, “Are humans more than mere mortals?”

When Life Gets Overwhelming, Sacred Space Heals The Heart

When Life Gets Overwhelming, Sacred Space Heals The Heart

Georgetown, TX – Modern lives are filled with gadgets, apps and advice to help us save money, save time, save room. But what will save us all? John D. Duncan has the answer in his newest book, Sacred Space: The Art of Sacred Silence, Sacred Speech, and The Sacred Ear in the Echo of the Still Small Voice of God (Austin Brothers Publishing).

Sacred Space is for those who feel bottle-necked, overloaded, trapped…in other words, all of us. In the foreword, pastor and author Taylor Field says “…in its own quiet way, this is a dangerous book. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!” This gentle reminder is only partly in jest.

“We need to slow down and make room for sacred space to renew our vision for life and our enthusiasm for living for Christ,” Duncan says. “An injured soul can only find renewal when time given to the sacred opens minds and hearts to the joy of Christ. Be still, and know that He is God.”

If your soul has been damaged by an overpacked schedule and too many things that pushed aside time for the sacred, and an over-hyped consumer church that marginalized the sacred (Christ, the cross and the resurrection) you will find help on these pages.

John Duncan is a pastor, preacher, writer and an adjunct professor at Baylor University. He preaches God’s Word, emphasizing the biblical text and providing keen insight into living out one’s faith in the 21st century. After 20 years as senior pastor of Lakeside Baptist Church in Granbury, TX, he served as senior pastor at First Baptist Church Georgetown from 2007-2013. He now serves as interim pastor at First Baptist Church San Marcos.

Dr. Duncan earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the United Kingdom Open University in Cambridge, England. His previous degrees include a D. Min. and an M. Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and a B.A. from Howard Payne University.
