Most Empowering Book

Judged by Neil Seligman

Ancient Teachings for Modern Times by Peta Morton (£11.99, O Books)

“This unassuming little book quietly and inconspicuously unlocks insight after insight as you read. I marvel at the masterful weaving together of ancient wisdom and cutting-edge science. Peta Morton has created a truly transformational work that you will want to return to. Beautifully readable, Peta Morton’s clarity of expression is interwoven with quotes, short experiential practices, reflections, and poetry. As you read, the wisdom hugs you back. Whilst the teachings in this book are ancient, they are expressed with a very modern clarity that is in equal parts philosophical, spiritual and scientific”.

Highly commended

Lightworkers Gotta Work by George Lizos
The Female Archangels by Calista

Best Wellbeing Book

Judged by Camilla Sacre-Dallerup

Magical Self-Care for Everyday Life by Leah Vanderveldt (£12.99, Ryland, Peters and Small)

“This book had me at hello! A soon as I saw the cover, I knew I wanted to dive in. And I wasn’t wrong. The advice is helpful, interesting and easy to digest, and the pictures really entice you to turn each page. One of the things I like most about this book is its readability. You can just dive in and read a couple of pages whenever it suits you, as the text is presented in short sections. The author manages to explain even complex topics, like shadow work, with total ease. You get the feeling that the self- care practices are written by someone who uses them too. This book is great value for money. I have read many spiritual and self- care books but whether you want to learn about the moon, crystals, or how to cook holistic meals, you’ve got it all here. Excellent information presented in a beautiful, easy- to-use way”.

Highly commended

Sensual Sorcery by Stella Ralfini
My Wellness Toolbox by Alison Swift

Best Card Deck

Judged by Paul Miles

Messages from Mermaids by Karen Kay (£15.99, Hay House)

“This 44-card deck comes with a great guidebook advising you how to work with the deck and fantastic artwork by Linda Olsen. It’s truly diverse, and nice to see all different shapes and size mermaids, which makes a change from the generic archetype. It’s beginner-friendly, with some fab ideas of spreads to get you started. Great insight into mermaids and how to connect, form a bond, as well as practising protection techniques. An investment also for collectors, it’s a great companion if you are either starting out or have many years’ experience in reading cards. They give off a gentle energy, but in my opinion pack a punch should you be looking for life guidance”.

Highly commended

Sound Your Voice by Judith Quin, artwork by Amy Bird
Fallen Angel by Nigel Suckling

Best Upskilling Book

Judged by George Lizos
georgelizos.com

Illumination of the Shadow by Anthea Durand (£16.99, Shamanism & Evolving Consciousness)

“In this trailblazing book, Durand helps us identify, access, and heal our ancestral wounds. Unpacking the various aspects of our shadow self, such as collective trauma, thought forms, and ancestral illness, and guides the reader through powerful processes to heal their personal and collective shadow. Illumination of the Shadow is one of the most comprehensive guides to healing ancestral trauma and accessing ancestral wisdom. A lot of the information in the book hasn’t been shared before in the spiritual literature, which makes this a truly unique piece of work. The practicality of the book is its greatest quality, as it helps readers not just learn about ancestral healing, but practise and experience it”.

Highly commended

Golden Purposes of Life by Wayne Lindsey
Complete Chakras for Beginners by Tracey Germon

Leading Overall Brand

Judged by Sarah Lloyd

Aura Soma,
aura-soma.com

“This company is living its brand - I can feel the love permeating through the website. From the colours of the bottles through to the imagery of the practitioners. The essence of the brand has been captured beautifully. I am fascinated by the product and feel the way it is created permeates through the branding. The products are made with intent and that comes across beautifully in the story. You can see there is an invested interest in being a sustainable company, bottles are glass, and they are committed to using natural materials to create their pomanders and sprays. It was good to see the breadth of practitioners, as its business model means products are sold through practitioner’s guidance which gives the brand more gravity. It’s a beautiful brand – I love the exclusivity via practitioners and understand that there is a training programme”.

Highly commended

Best Spiritual Course/Workshop

Judged by Jane Alexander

Beginner’s Psychic Mediumship with Casey Mackey, caseymackeypsychic @gmail.com

“Casey provides a safe, inspiring and encouraging space for everyone to explore their psychic development. Her long mission statement gets across the inclusive nature of the course. It’s encouraging and inspiring. I really wanted to investigate this more after reading. This is a well-structured and presented course, conducted over Zoom with a Facebook group and ongoing access to Casey for questions. Casey appears a very well-informed, knowledgeable and experienced teacher and she makes her students feel very comfortable and safe. Students go into break-out rooms to practice on each other with Casey dropping in to check on progress”.
