William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was a Master playwright and initiate of the Ageless Wisdom, who laid bare to contemporary Elizabethan and Jacobean audiences the manipulative, exploitative and devastating ways of the creation which we call ‘our world’.
Each and every scenario with its pre-scripted traps and tendrils deliberately constructed to keep us away from our magnificent origin and reduce us into a subjected heap of rubble or, worse, insidiously comfortably trapped in the apparently easeful existence of a false paradise, is clearly exposed on stage to awaken our observational awareness of the fact that we too have consented to play those very games – games in which there is no Love, no Brotherhood, no true joy – games in which everyone is a loser. Yes, accept the puppeteer’s proffered role . . . and play the game by all means, and the rewards and ease of creation’s living will come your way, but what price do you pay?

From a young age Donna recognised that there was a deep unsettlement within that led her to outwardly ask the bigger questions of life such as, ‘Who am I?’ and ‘Why am I here?’ Having fallen in love with yoga on a trip to India, she sought answers from this ancient tradition. It wasn’t until she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33 that she came to realise that she really hadn’t gotten anywhere.
The diagnosis brought her to her knees as she questioned if the past decade of seeking enlightenment had achieved anything. She became humbled by what life had presented her with as she underwent a year of treatment for cancer. The lessons that she learnt from her diagnosis were the beginning of unpacking and discovering who she truly was and so came the answers to the yearning questions that she had been asking most of her life.

GOLDEN MEAN BOOKS
Ageless Wisdom every day
Throughout history there have always been libraries that enhoused publications in which wisdom was the foundational impress for a scroll or book. The Library of Alexandria was perhaps the most well known of these libraries but by no means the only one. In the Dark Ages collections of books were moved around so as not to be discovered by the ruling elite. Today we live in an age in which there is more information than ever before but very little writing that is of true richness or power. Books of great value no longer have to be hidden – they are disguised in the sea of distraction that has become so characteristic of an electronic media age.
Enter Golden Mean Books – a publishing house that heralds a re-turn to the wisdom and depth of the publications of old.
A beacon for those looking for books across a diverse range of subjects and genres, that provide a common golden thread –
a quality that is ageless in its wisdom and yet everyday in its lived application.
FROM THE READERS
By Joel Levin
I read this book over the holidays. It’s a show stopper for many reasons but one of the things I loved was how relatable it was. If you are one to question the deeper aspects of life and are looking for a ‘real’ read then look no further. Joel Levin is a master at capturing life’s truths and sharing them in a way that is easy to digest while inspiring you to ponder on one’s own life and how it is being lived. Highly recommend!
