Green Fingers Book 1 and 2 by Lyn Marks
These two delightful books written by one of my long-time customers are for children (but were riviting to me!). They are books that children can read or be read to children by their parents. They are books that are a story of a boy who discovers vegetable gardening. Lyn weaves in the educational elements about gardening, from naming the tools, the preparation of the garden beds, and of course the vegetables themselves. A great present to give to children from say 6-12 years old. Book 2 even comes with a bag of seeds in it! They are priced at £6.50 each including postage in UK. To order ring 0044-1304615141.
Stevia – naturally sweet recipes for desserts, drinks and more!
by Rita DePuydt
Review by Alan Hopking
Let me start by saying, this is a good book! Possibly the biggest problem in western society is its intake of sugar. On average each person eats 137lbs of sugar per year. This results in probably the biggest cause of disease. Stevia, a humble bush originating on a remote mountain in Paraguay, is the answer. It is 20 times as sweet as sugar and yet contains zero glucose and zero calories. The constituent that gives its sweetness is a glycoside named stevioside. Stevioside has been found to stimulate insulin. Good for diabetics and people with blood sugar imbalance. So Stevia is perfect for sweet-toothed diabetics, and anyone wanting to replace sugar with a safe, healthy, natural alternative. Stevia is also helpful for regulating blood pressure, skin problems, hair and scalp trouble, indigestion, gum disease, weight gain. Rita DePuydt's book addresses all these in a popular cook book for making drinks, muffins and breads, cakes, puddings, desserts and sweet sources. Mouth watering. And all with Stevia, not sugar. Mostly Rita uses the white stevioside because it is 200-300 times as sweet as sugar. She has made all these recipes and gives advice and alternatives, plus the nutritional values of each recipe, which is so helpful to dieters keeping track of fat, protein, and carbs. Half a teaspoon of white Stevia (which Rita rather confusingly calls Stevia extract*) equals one cup of sugar. (*Stevia extract could also mean the black extract from the green powder).
Rita makes it clear she is aware of the limitations of white Stevia by stating on page 12 that the full health benefits come from the whole leaf green powder or black extract and that besides the white Stevia up to a tablespoon can be added to recipes to reap the rewards of whole leaf Stevia. Rita includes useful tips about how to extract the best sweetness from the green powder, and how to source, grow and care for a Stevia plant.
The book is for an American readership so people of Britain be aware of the weights and measures difference. for instance, on p179, it says 1 tablespoon equals 3 teaspoons, in Britain it is 4 teaspoons, that is 20g not 15g as in US (unfortunately no gram equivalents are included which would make the book more understandable in Europe). Also all contact addresses are in America.
Sometimes I was unsure whether Rita was talking white or green when referring to "stevia powder" but in the main it is the white she means.
Perhaps in the next edition the author will include a few recipes on alcoholic beverages like Sloe gin, blackberry wine, and Elderberry champagne using Stevia!
But I recommend this book for the sake of the health of the nation, its children and its economy. The sooner the West wakes up to the safety and health benefits of Stevia as Japan and India did over 25 years ago the better.
Over 100 recipies
Recipes include using whole herb stevia, white stevia, stevia extract

An email copied to me:
Take a look. I contacted this guy via e-mail about a year ago because I bought one of his books "Esoteric Healing" and could not find an Appendix he referred to in part of the book. It was in a place that I could not find. But he emailed back and I found the appendix - the best part of the book. I think this guy is really with it and connected and GC.

Dear Alan, The herbs seem to have an overall good effect not only on my health, but also on the subtler bodies .... This may have also been effected since I started reading your book on Esoteric Healing ... This book touched me deeply. I also started reading just a few pages of your book "Emergence of the Planetary Heart" for which I thank you once again (also for the extra greetings of herbal smell!). It arrived already two days after you sent it off.- Although I am not unfamiliar intellectually with the contents of the book due to my studies of the Alice Bailey books (including esoteric astrology), it seems that your book touches a new level within. I feel as if light and power would stream out of it. I am so grateful for your work!
*** * ***
I just finished reading your 2 books : Esoteric Healing and Advacing in Esoteric Healing. First, I want to deeply thank you for this astonishing work. I have been reading A.A.Bailey for 15 years and working in esoteric healing for 3 years. Your work made this science more comprehensible and deepened all the knowledge that D.K. made available to us. My profond and respecful thanks for all that.
Review by Mr Remco Van Reems,
Eindredacteur and Endeditor of the Dutch translation by Ankh-Hermes Pulications, Halland.
"Esoteric Healing, A Practical Guide by Alan Hopking is both a simple and practical handbook accessible to anyone, while at the same time it also gives the deeper aspects, the more specialised applications of esoteric healing. It is the first serious all encompassing book on this subject. It offers understanding, amelioration and the possible cure of disease.
"Djwhal Khul, the Tibetan Master, predicted, in the first half of the 20th century, that some people would make it their task later that century to transform the knowledge about Esoteric Healing to a more practical, working application. One person of this small group of people from the first hour is Alan Hopking, the writer of this book. He also brings two decades of practical application, experience and teaching in Esoteric Healing. He does this in a clear, encompassing, but also what is very important, in an understandable and comprehensive way.
"What is remarkable is that the author enters profoundly into the matter of what disease is, and the true cause of disease. His explanation about our origins and purpose on earth you will find secretly hidden throughout the authoritative esoteric literature (as hints); this in my opinion forms the nucleus and essence of this book. The implications are far-reaching; this nucleus gives the origin of, the reason why Service, serving, is the archetypical keynote, perhaps the pranava, of our life, and of Life itself: the deeply hidden reason why we want to improve ourselves and why we want to help others.
"This esoteric background will be new for most of us, and goes much further than the more simple explanations that ‘disease is [just] a result of inhibited soul energy'. This essential knowledge you will find throughout the book as an unwritten premise or point of departure of the writer: this book cuts through to a deeper layer… Diseases, sicknesses, or ‘fractors', as Alan calls them, play a central part in purifying, in the learning of lessons, and to make possible the growth in consciousness so that we can come back to that Unity, that Wholeness, and ultimately that Home - the Home where we came from, and some day will return to.
"Although much in this book will appear as new knowledge, it is not unknown; it appeals to the wisdom and knowing already deep, unawakened, in us. It makes you think more. Hopefully it will unleash an unquenchable thirst from within your heart for Reality, as this IS, creating an open channel from the heart chakra to that Monadic Light and Life.
"In this book you will find a lot of extraordinary things, and a lot of what you need to know to reach for a more complete wholeness in your consciousness, in your feelings and emotions, in your vitality, and in your physical body; with this understanding it will offer you the possibility for healing your fellow human beings – and, as Alan emphasises, every living being. I recommend you take this journey - have courage, proceed, and be honest with yourself, so that you can be honest with others. A lot awaits you in this book.
"I thank the writer for wholeheartedly sharing his knowledge, his experience and practice accumulated over many years, as precipitated in this book. This is a book of high inner quality. His sharing, without reservation, of that which most of the time remains hidden, is unusual these days…. This sharing is his leading; it is a responsibility he has taken on himself for us.
"I truly recommend this book: may it inspire you to practical application of its content. Most of what you need at this exact moment is in this book."

This book is intended to open up the subject of spiritual healing as a science to a wider public. It studies the principles and practice of healing in the hope of clarifying to some extent the confusion which exists in many minds regarding esoteric healing.
There is no doubt that this book will establish itself as an indispensable modern text in the field of spiritual healing, and Esoteric Healing in particular. Nothing like it has been published before, for Alan Hopking, a medical practitioner himself, has taken full account of research findings based both on present-day discoveries in this form of medical energetics, as well as drawing from the wealth of knowledge at the disposal of serious students of the Ageless Wisdom.
The introductory chapters examine the nature of the subject and provide the necessary guidelines for diagnosing, prescribing, and therapeutically utilising specific energy forms intelligently, yet from an intuitive understanding. The main part of the book studies the large and impressive body of healing circuits, known as triangles, arranged on a basis of clinical diagnoses relating to particular systems, governed as they are by the seven major energy centres in the etheric body - the digestive system, controlled by the solar plexus centre, the renal and locomotor systems governed by the base centre, the reproductive stystem governed by the sacral centre, the cardiovascular system governed by the heart centre, the respiratory system governed by the throat centre, the endocrine system governed by the ajna centre, and the central nervous system governed by the head centre.
There are expanded sections on the use of the sense triangles in healing and triangles used in more advanced esoteric healing. There are separate chapters dealing with the application of these healing energies to oneself and also how to approach cancer and other major planetary influences. There is even a section about the Rays in healing for progressing esoteric healing practitioners.
The book has been called the Esoteric Healing - A Practical Guide for good reason, as it guides the newcomer to spiritual healing from the very basics to the great complexities with a simplicity which marks the quality of a text book that will substantiate esoteric healing as an art and a science that will become recognised as the new medicine of the future.
"I have your expanded edition [of Esoteric Healing] in English, and this is really worthwhile studying particularly your chapter about our fallen Cosmos. It gave me a very deep realization why we are here. I understood for the first time the words of the Tibetan that the work is "the salvation of substance"." M. Bedel (Germany)

Hi Mr. Hopking (Alan), I have been immersed in "Esoteric Healing", … So much is going through my mind and my consciousness as I highlight, underline, and reflect while reading the information in your book. Yesterday, I was reading the section on cancer (ch.8). I was in my local coffee shop while reading it, but I felt transported to a deep place as I read and took in the vastness of the wisdom in this esoteric view of cancer. -- as I read I'm almost remembering it rather than reading it for the first time, though I am reading this book for the first time... It's hard to explain.
Books by Alice Bailey started showing up in my life 2 years ago through someone I met in Peru... as I sat in the back of a car in Peru and read, interestingly, I had quite a similar response of "Oh My God" as I did reading the material in your "Esoteric Healing" book. I'm not sure what it all means but I do feel this is important material for me in my life of service.
Thank you for all the time and energy you gave in service to write your books, I really appreciate being able to learn from this perspective.

Dear Alan, I am excited studying your book (and my Soul enjoys also). It was 25 years ago, when I came across Blue books and read them almost at once. So, as I already said, I am excited reading your book. What I found in it is practical DK. This is what I have always missed in his books: practicality. But as he said, information are scattered all over his books for those, who have enough intuition and perseverance to find them. And this is what I have found in your books. You (and your colleagues in INEH) have painstakingly and with much insight put together a lot of valuable information for practical working. A span from very abstract to very concrete. I would guess a lot of 5th ray is in it (exact and practical knowledge and inner light), motivated with 2nd ray behind it (benefits for all, healing and helping) and with a flavour of 6th ray (uplifting, inspiring, sovereignty). I would like to came across it 20 years ago, but doesn't matter. I must assimilate those precious experiences from your book. I am here a little student who is trying to compensate the lacking practical knowledge.
Thanks for every thing and again your book is «formidable» !!!
Hi Alan, I have your book Esoteric Healing which I treasure! It's wonderful and I refer to it regularly, even when I'm out of sync. It expresses everything so beautifully! I treasure your book and I thank you, it's just great. It helps me tremendously. It gives me great understanding, even greater understanding than the courses I have done.God bless your work!
Love and Light,
Marjorie O'Neil (Ireland)
Dear Alan. Thank you for all that you do in this world. Meeting you and reading your Book has been a profoundly significant experience and I sense will become more so as I align myself more fully with the Soul's task.
Kathy. Manchester, England.
"I hope this edition endures extended use better than the very first edition which I acquired once [where pages fell out!]! Anyway, a classic such as this perhaps would age most honourably in hard cover...? After all, it is a *manual*, almost a (virtual) 'colleague', i.e. to be consulted perhaps even on a day-to-day basis. These days, at least my copy looks more like a 'wrestling' companion... :-)
I have for years given thought about whether (and why) the one concerning Esoteric Healing may be of special interest here in Sweden/Scandinavia.
I think it would be great to eventually have the best available study and practice/reference guides (along with AAB's Esoteric Healing) such as your books (and Brenda's?) available in Swedish, and it may also prove to be a good complement, as well as a 'logical advancement', to the books on healing already published by Regnbågsförlaget."
Much Love and Light,
Dear Alan Hopking,
I am a long time student of the teachings of the Tibetan Master DK, graduated with honors in Clinical Psychology and trained in different modalities of expansion of consciousness and energy work, including Esoteric Healing with the I.N.E.H.
First to send profound gratitude for the great inspiration and guidance provided through all your books, specially Esoteric Healing. A practical guide based on the teachings of the Tibetan in the Works of Alice A. Bailey. Apart of my own soul and the Tibetan, I consider you my best teacher in this healing path that is naturally and happily unfolding the pure nature of my soul.
I thank you too for the information online, specially the poems of the newborn, I see what your eyes see, and I thank you to be so brave to speak so openly to the world from your heart and soul.
In your case the experience is totally different, you radiate Life ! and one can easily breathe the vitality with which you live all this work, you are connected with nature, and in all that I believe.
no wonder I have felt so pleased all day!! So thank you so much this was exactly what I needed I have gained hope again ...... your book it is on my desk today (as I read it in the morning). I look up things and read in it every now and then and I really like it! One of my students has bought one and she really likes it too! I will bring it to all my courses and I hope that people this way will be able to look in it and then maybe they will buy it.
Alan Hopking has drawn on the writings of Alice Bailey and others and has interpreted them in a manner that will make the concepts of esoteric healing more easily understood by all who wish to heal.
In the author's foreword he acknowledges the confusion which exists in many minds and says that his aim is to give more clarity and definition than has hitherto been given by 'others working in the field'. In this the book succeeds remarkably well. The text is concise. There are no obscure profundities to distract the reader for hours on end. But this is not a book to open at random. It is necessary for the reader fully to understand the essential preliminaries which define the principles of esoteric healing contained in the first half of the book before attempting to gain insight into the esoteric triangles of healing.
The section that describes the function and role of the energy centres is both instructive in its theory and practical in its application. For instance, the importance of the Vagus Centre and the major influence of this centre on the life of the aspiring disciple is clearly explained. There is also a useful note on group healing.
As a text-book this aptly-named practical guide will repay hours of rewarding study.
Book Reviews. Radionic Quarterly.
Thank you so very much for your new book - I am full of admiration.
Dinah Lawson, Past Chair of the International Network of Energy Healing
I just finished reading your book Esoteric Healing. Having been a
student of the Bailey writings for many years I appreciate all the
thought you put into your various healing techniques as DK did not
supply a lot of specifics, but always talked around his various
subjects leaving it up to the intuition of the student to figure out
the details. That said, I found the most interesting part of your book was your
version of the “Fall.” This was a version I have never seen presented
by DK, HPB or any other New Age or Christian writer. Maybe the
closest was The Course in Miracles, which did not give many details.
A fellow traveler,
...it is a good book... You have done a substantial job on triangles. Gratitude for your research and clear way of presenting your work. I suspect this book (as well as your others) will be of continuing service to students of the Teaching. Thanks again Alan for your fine contribution and your loving concern.
The Institute for Visionary Leadership. USA
Thank you very much for your input, it has had the result of pushing me forward in understanding.
A quick update on the new book, which I received from you before Christmas.
It is beautifully presented and explains the work in a very clear manner.
As a teacher of EH, there are a number of triangles which I hadn't seen before.
The balancing of the pairs is interesting. It is very powerful to balance the pairs the way you describe in the book.
A number of the group I facilitate are purchasing the book through Blue Dolphin publishing.
Regards Elizabeth (Australia)
Thank you. The book arrived safely and it looks wonderful.
I am looking forward to digging into it.
Hello Alan, hope all is well with you and your family!
I would like to express my gratitude for your book, I found it very interesting, complete and stimulating.
Love ! Isabella (Italy)
Thanks for the two very good days !
We have learned a lot and I am looking forward for the next course and the course after!
It's not only that I have learned a lot but there's also a lot happening while we practise.
It felt very good. There's a lot of group energy building up during these two days.
I have noticed that it's handy to have your book during the course, it's more easy.
Thank you for meeting with me on Wednesday I am elated that you will be part of the Colour Breathing at Home team. I can’t get over the fact you have so much knowledge, etc and are in Christchurch! Your book is great and I’m slowly (very slowly!) digesting the immense amount of new information contained within.

Advancing in Esoteric Healing
by Alan Hopking MA
This book is a study of higher more inner causes of disease and illness in the human being. A detailed description of the organism of the causal body, the egoic lotus. A deeper understanding of the etheric sub-planes of the physical plane. A thorough study of the senses on the higher levels of consciousness and how we can use these in healing.
Esoteric Healing is the future medicine and it has begun! There have been initiate healers right down the ages, but it only in the late 20th century that this science has become comprehensible to ordinary intelligent people. Healing from the soul rather than the personality is now imperative. This book takes the healer deeper into the subtle realm of causes and origins, so that he or she can more profoundly and intelligently offer a selfless service to the one who asks for healing.
The new age demands group activity. This book will help those who are healing in groups.
Subjects covered include:
Materialising Energy, Direct Soul contact, the Causal Body, Karma and Transmutation, Group healing, the Rays, Using the Sacred Mantram, the Four Ethers, the Magnetic Aura, the Nadis, Disease and the Etheric Body, Healing through the Senses, the Inner Eye, the Four Aspects of the Centres.

The Emergence of the Planetary Heart
by Alan Hopking MA
The emergence of the planetary heart is the most important event NOW to be prepared for on our planet. Getting ready for this event should be for us our only life intention. This book is for everyone. Its interpretation will be according to your own insight into the Coming One.
The reader is given a complete overview of modern esoteric teaching with special emphasis on the externalization of the Masters and the reappearance of the World Teacher. After explaining the meaning of the Planetary Heart, Alan Hopking speaks about the inner purpose of the World War and what it meant for the World Teacher and for Humanity. He then goes on to describe certain 'provisos' which we must look out for and which will indicate the time of His Coming. The author uncovers many hints concerning the extent of the World Teacher's stay on earth, about planetary evil and other important related topics.
Alan Hopking then enters the very heart of the subject by going right into the actual events and implications of the Emergence of the World Teacher: What is His presence? Will it be an Overshadowing? What actually draws Him earthwards into a Body? The Vestures and their connection with the Buddha; the Christ's Physical Appearance, and much more.
Mr Hopking also examines the consequences of the emergence and how it affects all the departments of human activity; and the effect on Shamballa is also noted. One of the themes running through this impressive and convincing work is the golden thread of how the individual can personally prepare for this Event. For example, how etheric vision can be procured and what the requirements are. Various meditation forms are recommended. And a programme of self-awareness is detailed. Then all the more important human activities are reviewed: the New World Religion, the Mystery Centers and Initiation, Right Speech, Telepathy and Astrology, the activities of the New Group of World Servers, how to work to Build the Bridge for the World Teacher, the purpose and use of Esoteric Healing, understanding the Seven Rays, perceiving the purpose of that great Triangle involving the avatars. This book is exactly what it says it is, a manual for servers of the planet. The vast amount of information it contains will inspire you for years and will no doubt become a text book and reference work for the seed group of the new religion of the future. By reading it and implementing the many suggestions you will be preparing the Way of the Lord in the best way possible: for yourself as a person, for the groups to which you belong, for the kingdoms of the planet and for the Heart of Life as the Spiritual Principle.

Lani from New Zealand says, "The group found your book great as a workbook along with E.H. as the text. The last couple of years have manifested a sense of synthesis among those who have journeyed with healing and ongoing study."

This is a book of about 100 pages studying the second coming of Christ comparing the perspectives of Rudolf Steiner and Alice Bailey. It contains the original quotations from the two authors and has a very convincing argument. How they diverge and where they complement each other's perspectives.

As with any other medicine they are likely to have an effect on the body and should be used with care. • Herbal remedies may sometimes interact with other medicines. This makes it particularly important to tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking a herbal remedy with other medicines such as prescribed medicines (those provided through your doctor or dentist). • Treat with caution any suggestion that a herbal remedy is '100% safe' or is 'safe because it is natural'. Many plants, trees, fungi and algae can be poisonous to humans. It is worth remembering that many pharmaceuticals have been developed or derived from these sources because of the powerful compounds they contain. Any medicine, including herbal remedies, which have an effect on the body should be used with care. • Treat with caution any herbalist or other person who supplies herbal remedies if they are unwilling or unable to provide written information, in English, listing the ingredients of the herbal remedy they are providing. • If you are due to have a surgical operation you should always remember to tell your doctor about any herbal remedy that you are taking. • Anyone who has previously experienced any liver complaint, or any other serious health complaint is advised not to take any herbal remedy without speaking to their doctor first.
Few conventional medicines have been established as safe to take during pregnancy and it is generally recognised that no medicine should be taken unless the benefit to the mother outweighs any possible risk to the foetus. This rule should also be applied to herbal medicinal products. However, herbal products are often promoted to the public as being “natural” and completely “safe” alternatives to conventional medicines. Some herbal ingredients that specifically should be avoided or used with caution during pregnancy. As with conventional medicines, no herbal products should be taken during pregnancy unless the benefit outweighs the potential risk.
Many herbs are traditionally reputed to be abortifacient and for some this reputation can be attributed to their volatile oil component.(6) A number of volatile oils are irritant to the genito-urinary tract if ingested and may induce uterine contractions. Herbs that contain irritant volatile oils include ground ivy, juniper, parsley, pennyroyal, sage, tansy and yarrow. Some of these oils contain the terpenoid constituent, thujone, which is known to be abortifacient. Pennyroyal oil also contains the hepatotoxic terpenoid constituent, pulegone. A case of liver failure in a woman who ingested pennyroyal oil as an abortifacient has been documented.
A stimulant or spasmolytic action on uterine muscle has been documented for some herbal ingredients including blue cohosh, burdock, fenugreek, golden seal, hawthorn, jamaica dogwood, motherwort, nettle, raspberry, and vervain. Herbal Teas Increased awareness of the harmful effects associated with excessive tea and coffee consumption has prompted many individuals to switch to herbal teas. Whilst some herbal teas may offer pleasant alternatives to tea and coffee, some contain pharmacologically active herbal ingredients, which may have unpredictable effects depending on the quantity of tea consumed and strength of the brew. Some herbal teas contain laxative herbal ingredients such as senna, frangula, and cascara. In general stimulant laxative preparations are not recommended during pregnancy and the use of unstandardised laxative preparations is particularly unsuitable. A case of hepatotoxicity in a newborn baby has been documented in which the mother consumed a herbal tea during pregnancy as an expectorant. Following analysis the herbal tea was reported to contain pyrrolizidine alkaloids which are known to be hepatotoxic.
A drug substance taken by a breast-feeding mother presents a hazard if it is transferred to the breast milk in pharmacologically or toxicologically significant amounts. Limited information is available regarding the safety of conventional medicines taken during breast-feeding. Much less information exists for herbal ingredients, and generally the use of herbal remedies is not recommended during lactation.
Herbal remedies have traditionally been used to treat both adults and children. Herbal remedies may offer a milder alternative to some conventional medicines, although the suitability of a herbal remedy needs to be considered with respect to quality, safety and efficacy. Herbal remedies should be used with caution in children and medical advice should be sought if in doubt. Chamomile is a popular remedy used to treat teething pains in babies. However, chamomile is known to contain allergenic sesquiterpene lactones and should therefore be used with caution. The administration of herbal teas to children needs to be considered carefully and professional advice may be needed.
The need for patients to discontinue herbal medicinal products prior to surgery has recently been proposed. The authors considered eight commonly used herbal medicinal products (echinacea, ephedra, garlic, ginkgo, ginseng, kava, St John’s Wort, valerian). On the evidence available they concluded that the potential existed for direct pharmacological effects, pharmacodynamic interactions and pharmacokinetic interactions. The need for physicians to have a clear understanding of the herbal medicinal products being used by patients and to take a detailed history was highlighted. The American Society of Anaesthesiologists (ASA) has advised patients to tell their doctor if they are taking herbal products before surgery and has reported that a number of anaesthesiologists have reported significant changes in heart rate or blood pressure in some patients who have been taking herbal medicinal products including St John’s Wort, ginkgo and ginseng. MCA is currently investigating a serious adverse reaction associated with the use of ginkgo prior to surgery. In this case, the patient who was undergoing hip replacement experienced uncontrolled bleeding thought to be related to the use of ginkgo.
