WINNER, CAROLINA WOMAN INSPIRATION AWARD

For readers of The Secret, The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down by Haemin Sunim, Eckhart Tolle, Louise Hay, and Paul Coelho.

According to Australia's ancient cultures, all creatures and things emerged from the Dreamtime. The Dreaming is not just a collection of lore or a long-ago time; it is a living energy that flows constantly through the universe. It is then and now, divine and human, spirit and law. Because the energy is as vibrant today as ever, these ancient stories show us how to survive in a harsh world and how to thrive in our souls.

Each Aboriginal story in this collection is enhanced with an essay from award-winning author Laine Cunningham. Our modern perspectives on love and friendship, illness and joy, life and the afterlife can be enriched with this ancient knowledge. Open this book and take your own journey through the eternal Dreamtime. Along the way, you will discover that the ancient connection to god/goddess/the divine still resonates in your soul. You will discover your own truth.

In The Dance, readers are inspired to follow their dreams while staying balanced in their lives.

Trickery and Seven Sisters address the special relationships between men and women.

War provides a new perspective on one of the world’s most important issues.

Excerpts from this book have been published in spiritual, literary, and inspirational magazines and newsletters; one combination received an award.

Read today and discover your own truth.

Laine Cunningham’s understanding of Aboriginal culture began during a six-month solo journey through the Australian Outback.

Editorial Reviews

"Loved it! The traditional Aboriginal stories are fascinating reads. From reading Laine's book, it's easy to feel the sacredness in the Aboriginal culture. I hadn't felt this moved by Aboriginal spirituality since viewing Oprah Winfrey's visit to Australia's Uluru rock." Virginia Lathan"Having no pre-knowledge of Aboriginal folklore, I found Seven Sisters to be both educational and inspiring. The fact that Laine Cunningham spent six long months on her own in the Australian outback before writing this book leant a rich authenticity to her voice as she shared from her abundantly full, and talented, heart. I absolutely adored this book and keep it in the top draw of my bed table so I can go back to Dreamtime anytime I need to be rescued from the dream killing drudgeries of this life. Seven Sisters is a treasure!" Leah Griffith, Award-winning Author, Cosette's Tribe"Well written and highly informative, Seven Sisters was even better than I'd hoped." C Laney, Author, Lessons from the Cockpit"Ever since Laine's first book on Australia, The Family Made of Dust, I have waited anxiously for her next creative work. Seven Sisters molded a deeper understanding of the indigenous concept of 'Dreamtime.' Laine has delicately represented a series of spiritual perspectives leading us to the core of the Aboriginal heart. With her insight, she must have been a native medicine woman in a previous life." Dale Stacy, Author, Diamond in the Rough"An intriguing look at the culture of Australia told through a rich oral history and passed down through the ages. The stories they tell are their way of explaining many mysteries of the universe and of life." Mary Blowers, Book Review Blog"As a teacher I can see this book being great for many audiences. I personally enjoyed the stories as a nice afternoon pleasure read. I can see the book as a whole being used with older children to help them learn to analyze text and younger children to help teach important life lessons." Robin Perron, Teacher"Seven Sisters is comprised of unique stories that have been passed down from generation to generation among the Australian Aborigines. The stories offer insights into another culture, each with a life lesson, and the author adds her own insights to each story." Shaman Elizabeth, Author with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies"I thought this book would be a quick read, but I found myself lingering, absorbing the message of each story before moving on to the next. I found this book to be both entertaining and informative, one I will probably reread quite a few times." Dena Harris, Award-winning Author, Who Moved My Mouse? A Self-Help Book for Cats
