PAPERBACK

Nobody Dies Anymore vol.1 & 2

An African villager on the Zambian Plateau made the remark that inspired the title of this book. He was describing the impact of western medicine on a community where it was previously unknown.

In 1964 the United States Government, the Government of the Irish Republic and the Zambian Government negotiated the construction and staffing of a children’s hospital on the Copperbelt, probably the richest mineral area in the world.

The three presidents, Kaunda, Johnson and De Valera were all personally involved in the project associated with the project, a Flying Doctor Service was to be established, designed to construct and operate airfields and clinics in the remote and rural areas of Zambia.

Penicillin and chloroquine were two of the most formidable motivators for development in Africa. The advantages they produced, life instead of death, redefined the obligations of society and they had, by themselves, the capacity to revolutionise the continent.

About the Author

In ten years, James Lawless had started Zambia’s first Children’s Hospital, established the Zambian Flying Doctor Service and become very close to the people of Zambia. Between them, the couple had two significant papers on paediatrics published in the Lancet. On their return to their home country, they lived in North Yorkshire. Jim wrote
of his experiences and they both did some general practice. He tried unsuccessfully to introduce the Zambian villagers’ concept of consensus to British Industry. The last four decades were spent in Australia, working in Apollo Bay, a fairly remote coastal town in Victoria. For the first 20 years, they were the only doctors.
Again, Jim had an enormous impact on the area — a characteristic of his whole life.
He died in Apollo Bay in 2016.

Stepping Stones to Oneness

Poetry is the language of the heart, the seeker, and the lover. It has the capacity to transcend the bounds of this world and speak directly to the soul in profound and simple text.

In this anthology, the poet shares the words of inspiration and revelation that flowed from within during her journey to Oneness – that state of being when the separate sense of self dissolves and only One remains – complete, boundless, joyous, and full of a profound love of all things. Each poem has been woven into a powerful and transformative process that unfolds as Stepping Stones along the path.  They provide guidance to the seeker and bring all those who read them closer to the very heart of their true nature.
