Please help support the small, independent book store. Most of the above stores participate in promotions by Book Sense, a company that promotes small independent book presses. They also offer books beyond what I describe above, but I have selected the area of interest to people who are familiar with Spring Time Writers' workshops (western material, women-related, and self-help)

If you're interested in small town Colorado life, stories of its pioneers, or life in the sandstone quarries of Colorado, or similar Geology (Front Range), check out the video documentaries of the Lyons area.

Books for Spiritual Guidance (love and peace):

Prophets of Love and Peace:

Lazaris: He has touched thousands in his extraordinary workshops, and tens of thousands more with the books, video tapes and audio tapes that many have said are the finest tools of metaphysics and spirituality available.

Maitreya:when you experience the Self within and come to know you are an immortal entity, completely separate from mind, spirit and body, you learn to use these temples of the Lord creatively, with awareness.

Sanaya Roman (DaBen and Orin) To our readers: The books we publish are our contribution to an emerging world based on cooperation rather than on competition, on affirmation of the human spirit rather than on self-doubt, and on the certainty that all humanity is connected. Our goal is to touch as many lives as possible with a message of hope for a better world.

FILMMAKERS: Who has the right to borrow, copy, cut, reproduce and remix what, under which circumstances and according to whom?

The films underline the ways in which creativity is, and will continue to be hindered if the current, excessive intellectual property regime continues. The films are specifically concerned with the impact of copyright and intellectual property laws with respect to musicians, visual artists, and filmmakers, especially in regards to their ability to create in the digital age. Increasingly, with every copyright law reform, most recently the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (1998) the capabilities of digital technology are in direct conflict with current regulation.
