The Celestine Prophecy
The Tenth Insight

Salle Merrill and James Redfield

James Redfield is the author of The Celestine Prophecy and The Tenth Insight. He writes widely on the topic of human spiritual awareness and is active in the worldwide effort to save our last remaining wilderness areas. James lives with his wife, Salle, and cat, Meredith, in Alabama and Arizona.  Salle Merrill Redfield is the author of Celestine Mediations, Meditations for the Tenth Insight, and The Joy of Meditating.

The Secret of Shambhala

James Redfield's The Celestine Prophecy offered a life-affirming story about synchronicity, intuition, and personal destiny. Now, Mr. Redfield's newest book, The Secret of Shambhala (review or buy) carries the reader to a new adventure and new spiritual truths that are now emerging in human awareness.  In the remote snow-covered mountains near Tibet lies a community long thought to be a mere myth called Shambhala, or Shangri-La -- it is this legend that Mr. Redfield explores.

Creating a Life of Joy

In the spirit of her bestselling The Joy of Meditating, Salle Merrill Redfield offers a precise guide for learning how to live in joy. Creating a Life of Joy (review or buy) helps the reader to focus on key issues in his or her life, such as building meaningful relationships, breaking cycles of worry, finding better ways to prioritize, setting and reaching goals, and learning how to best manage one's time.
