Endless Path:
Awakening Within the Buddhist Imagination: Jataka Tales, Zen Practice, and Daily Life
by Rafe Martin, Illustrated by Richard Wehrman
The jataka tales—stories of the Buddha's past lives (in both human and animal form)—were first said to have been told by the Buddha himself 2,500 years ago. Five hundred and fifty jataka tales comprise part of the oldest Buddhist text, the Pali Canon. From this wealth of folklore, award-winning author and storyteller Rafe Martin has chosen ten tales that illustrate the ideals of the Buddhist paramitas, or "perfections" of character: giving, morality, forbearance, vitality, focused meditation, wisdom, compassionate skillful means, resolve, strength, and knowledge. Artist and designer Richard Wehrman helps bring the spirit of these stories alive with rich illustrations that open each chapter.

The Boy Who Loved Mammoths
by Rafe Martin, Illustrated by Richard Wehrman
Winner of a 1996 Parent's Choice Gold Award and chosen as a 1996 Spring Pick of the Lists by the American Booksellers Association, this is the story of Will, a boy who believes that mammoths exist. When Will finally meets his mammoth in a snowstorm, the real threat of danger clashes with the equally real power of Will’s imagination. With its rich language and penetrating vision, this book will entrance children and adults alike. Will's tale demonstrates the creative power of the imagination and will inspire readers to have faith in theirs. This is the original literary version of Rafe’s acclaimed picturebook Will’s Mammoth, illustrated by Caledcott Award–winner Stephen Gammell. The magic and delight of this tale is brought to life by the 22 illustrations, done in reverse with white quache on black paper, by award-winning artist Richard Wehrman.

Heartwork cover image
How To Get What You Really, REALLY Want
Heartwork is a synthesis of western psychological processes and eastern meditative techniques developed by psychotherapist and teacher Dale Goldstein from over 37 years of personal and professional work. In Heartwork: How to Get What You Really, REALLY Want, Goldstein brings Heartwork to life through compelling, illuminating teachings and personal stories. His tools for mindfully inquiring into what blocks us from having what we really want in life are ideal for those who find the standard psychological approach to personal growth too limited. Through Heartwork, readers learn to see their blocks as doorways to the spiritual, and the result is nothing short of complete personal transformation. Beautifully illustrated by award-winning graphic designer Richard Wehrman, the book is filled with inspiring poetry and quotations, as well as testimonials from those who have used Heartwork to profoundly change their lives. Includes a CD with music and guided meditations.
