A Book that Reaches and Teaches

Elizabeth Mellor (The Awakening Network Inc., Seymour, 2010) 174 pages

Elizabeth won a prize in the twenty-third Annual Australian Family Therapists’ Award for Children’s Literature. Bushfire was put on the recommended reading list for therapists to use with their clients.


Read what they wrote: “Bushfire … [is] for therapists who may work with clients (adults or children) in the aftermath of a natural disaster which impacts on a whole community. It was placed in the top five books for “Older Readers (meaning children from about 10 years of age and up)."


Bushfire is a fictional story that is a great read for children and teenagers, and a powerful mentoring resource for adults.

This book is a gripping story about a child going through a bushfire and its aftermath. It also offers a path for dealing with the trauma and emotional upheaval experienced by anyone affected by bushfire. The book is written with children and teenagers in mind but speaks to all ages and provides parents, or anyone involved with young people, with a wonderful device to approach the issues surrounding traumatic events. Many adults have also benefited from reading it.

Bushfire begins on a very hot Australian summer day with the threat of bushfire in the air. The central character, Ruby, lives with her parents and her dog, Gypsy, on a property some distance from town. For over 50 hours, Ruby and her parents face the rigours of bushfire. After a long fight, they and their house survive, although other parts of their property are destroyed.

The story is written through Ruby's eyes and it takes us both through the fire and its aftermath. Having survived the fire, Ruby's family moves to a recovery centre set up on the local cricket oval where we get to know the other characters central to the book. This time of facing day-to-day difficulties and painful realisations is balanced by humour, good old fashioned common sense and an underlying theme of learning how different people cope with trauma and their recovery from it. While living there, Ruby returns to school where she faces problems with other students who didn't experience the fire and has to come to terms with her own grief. The story ends six months after the fires, as neighbours and friends gather at Ruby's home to celebrate their lives and to say goodbye to those who died.

Two resource guides are available for the book: one for parents and the other for teachers. These are free and available through Elizabeth's bushfire book website. See below.

URBAN MYSTIC: Discovering the transcendent through everyday life


The Personal Narration of a Journey to Self-Discovery

Author: Ken Mellor (The Awakening Network Inc., Seymour-Australia, 2009)
(Paperback, 228x153mm, 470 pages & in eBook & PDF)


A Finalist in the Spirituality Category
2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards


Also Available in Kindle from Amazon


An extraordinary book, it takes hold of us from the first line and carries us through to the end.

Common comments include: "I couldn't put it down" and "I savoured it like a good meal that I didn't want to end"

The book prompts personal change as we read. Ken’s intention always was for the book to do this. As he wrote, he meditated continually so everyone would find themselves drawn into greater personal balance and into the discovery of the wonderful light, love, harmony and joy that expanding personal awakening brings. A lot of feedback to him shows that he has succeeded:

  • I realised if you could do it, then I could too
  • I have found great encouragement from your story
  • Your account of your journey has helped me understand my own much more deeply
  • As I read, I kept going into deep meditation and could feel myself changing
  • I see myself and the world very differently now.

Wonderfully easy to read, it's like having a personal conversation with Ken. He is in the room with us—an extraordinary feat. And it's like poetry in places, too.

So if you want to go on an extraordinary journey with, as Ken describes himself, an ‘ordinary bloke’ as your guide, this is a book for you.

PROSPERITY: An angelic guide to living abundantly


 It sells for A$24.95 only through The Awakening Network.

Usual retail price:  A$29.95

This unique and beautiful looking book speaks to us of the kinds of lives that we want to live and the sorts of people we aspire to be.  It's about prosperity in its fullest sense - abundance. 

The author, Tony Smark, says, "If you have ever longed for:

  • meaningful, satisfying work
  • time for everything in your life
  • opportunities to be creative
  • relaxation and recreation
  • perfect health
  • financial and material security
  • fun and laughter in your life
  • a life filled with love, peace and balance

then 'Prosperity' is for you."

Ken and Elizabeth agree with him.  This is a lovely book: amusing, informative, lively and very effective in the way it teaches the reader what to do in very practical terms.  They think that you will love Arch, the angel of prosperity, who has a great deal to offer of worldly significance. 

This book is a wonderful integration of a great deal of what Ken and Elizabeth have taught for many years about making the most of life and living easily and well.  And it's very much more.
