Journals of an Integral Poet
Volume I — 1932 to 1944
An inspiring story of profound commitment to awakening through the utmost exertion of poetic action, told with daring and fiery zeal. In a luminous and accessible style that is critical, incisive and refreshingly alive, Thompson’s recounts his daily search for and experience of liberation while living in India among such spiritual luminaries as Sri Ramana Maharshi and Ananadamayi Ma. Thompson’s Western heritage – from Blake to Rimbaud – is illuminated by the wisdom of Indian thought, myth and symbol.

Early Childhood Development
LET'S TALK ABOUT
Ana Gamarra Hoover, M.Ed.
Karen Griffin Roberts, M.Ed.
"Let’s Talk About Early Language Development is a great place to start if you are concerned about
your child’s speech delay. It gives parents an idea about what a typical child should understand and
say at different ages. Hoover and Roberts describe the different kinds of language delays in an easy
to understand format. They give specific examples about what parents can do at home and throughout
the day to help their child. As the parent of a special needs son with a significant language delay, I found it comforting to know that a lot of what I do already, like talking and reading to my child, is exactly what he needs to develop his language in order to communicate. I recommend this book to parents of young children – it provides answers to questions that all parents have at some point."
LET'S TALK ABOUT
IN EARLY CHILDHOOD
"Let’s Talk About Autism in Early Childhood is definitely a go-to book for both parents and educators involved with children on the autism spectrum. Karen Roberts is straightforward
and eager to assist. Her comments and suggestions are user-friendly and perceptive, as well as easy to understand and apply. She talks about the “lifelong journey” she has made with her son. With that experience and her special education teaching background, Karen answers the pertinent questions parents have about autism. Karen seeks to help parents face the challenges with more
understanding and strength. If you have a child, or are involved with a child, with autism spectrum
disorder and have questions and concerns, this book is a wonderful resource for you."

For General Education Teachers
"Embracing Autism in Preschool is a valuable book for preschool teachers, special educators, speech/language clinicians and parents. It underscores social interaction as the foundation for the development and use of language in natural settings. These interactions are also crucial for further development of socialization, which is such a challenge for children on the autism spectrum. This book's practicality and resources make it possible to truly feel, in Karen's words, that "it is a privilege to have a child with autism in your class."

Foreword by Lenny Schafer, Editor,
The Schafer Report
Sacred Spark is also the inspiring story of Rev. Sykes' work with the United Methodist Church to pass the first global resolution advocating the elimination of mercury from medicine. As such, Rev. Sykes helps her church ignite a social justice movement on par with historical faith-based campaigns against child labor and slavery.
Sacred Spark is a pragmatic and compassionate call for putting the well-being of children first. Parents and physicians demanding safer vaccines will find clarity to support their informed choices, as well as inspiration and guidance to become advocates for children.
Rev. Sykes weaves into a seamless whole several strands of fast-paced and engrossing narrative: her family's horror in witnessing their happy toddler slip into autism; her victories in appropriate and landmark biomedical treatments for her son; her attempts to find precious allies against a corrupt and protected industry; the success of empowered parents to enact state bans on mercury and to approach Attorneys General across the country, and her own family's lawsuit defeat on a procedural technicality against a pharmaceutical company.
