Mindfulness Meets Zen Living
I wrote and self published my first book back in 1994 - it was a collection of therapy stories called "Stories from the Sea of Life." The stories were pretty well written, if I do say so myself - (the book is out of print, but you can have a PDF copy for free by signing up for our mailing list -- see form to the right.) I wasn't as impressed with the production values and look of the book. So, I formed a publishing company, and took matters into my own hands. In recent years, we've switched over to the Amazon group of websites for distribution of our books.
Reading and listening, observing and learning - these are the backbones of an enlightened life. Our books, audio products, e-books, CD-Rs, DVDs and Free booklets contain the underpinnings of our beliefs and our work.
Please, take the time to look around, to download some of the free stuff, and to begin a deeper round of self-exploration. Your life will be different after you start. We know this and celebrate this reality. Warmly,
About our guarantee: your happiness is paramount!

Featured Title – Living Life in Growing Orbits -- Revised for 2016!
Living Life in Growing Orbits has been a best seller since it was originally published in 1998. It's been revised and reformatted, and is now available from Amazon.
As I was writing This Endless Moment (see below,) my reviewers asked me to include exercises and projects readers could complete, to make learning the principles easier to do. I eventually gave in and added the exercises, and also wrote an additional twenty as a bonus download. I'd shake my head a bit, though, because I'd already written Living Life in Growing Orbits, and this book is the ultimate collection of practical exercises.
Wayne Allen is an insightful writer. From his varied life experience, he blends spiritual principles with everyday values, making for a readable, thought provoking blend of stories and ideas. Foremost, Wayne is very human .... and this comes through in his writing. This book would be of value to anyone who is genuinely interested in finding deeper meanings in life and relationships. You can read it all at once, or sip it in small quantities. Highly recommended.

Elegant, Intimate Relating is an art. It requires attention, focus and persistence. My new book, The. Best. Relationship. Ever., is packed with guidance, exercises, and directions for drastically improving your relationship.
Paperback (142 pages): $20.00, Kindle edition $2.99
Back in 1999, I wrote a booklet called "The List of 50." Part of a series of free booklets on aspects of relationships, "The List" was a guide to deciding whom you want to be in relationship with, and then putting what you decide into action.
My clients, since then, have asked me to expand upon this concept of conscious dating. So, I completely re-wrote the booklet into a 140 page book.
In addition to revising the structure and contents of the booklet, I have included comments from readers, as well as sample Lists of 50.

Darbella and I were asked to lead a 3-hour seminar on alternatives to drugs for pain management for Ontario's Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB.) At the end of the seminar, we offered to run an all day workshop. We developed a book and CD package that became the backbone of the program.
The book from the package has been re-worked to be of benefit to anyone who wishes to gain (or regain) flexibility, freedom of movement, and peace of mind, and we've taken the videos from the DVD and put them online, for you to use as guides.
We've put a short video on the Information page, so have a look, and order the set—it's for anyone wanting to establish a Meditation Practice, too.
