  • The Amber Lotus 2014 Calendar CatalogQ Illuminating Spirit in the World !

  • AMBER LOTUS PRODUCTS ARE PRINTED ON RECYCLED PAPER USING SOY-BASED INKS

    Peaceful greetings from your friends at Amber Lotus Publishing

    Weve been publishing calendars, greeting cards, journals, books and other paper products for 25 years. Longtime friends and supporters are used to seeing these products all together in one catalog, so it is with excitement and some trepidation that we have decided to showcase calendars and non-calendar products each in their very own catalog. Our card and gift business has been growing and expanding, and we felt it was time for it to have a stand-alone catalog. We will mail both catalogs to all our customers, so you will always be able see our entire collection of calendars, cards and journals.

    We have an amazing lineup of new calendars this year, including Farm to Table, Tree Huggers, Lunaria and Sacred Celtic Sites. Were also bringing back an old favorite, Hafiz, with Persian-inspired illuminations from Silas Toball, designer extraordinaire and co-creator of our best-selling Duirwaigh card line. Other new titles include Steampunk, Day of the Dead, Bee Happy, The Garden Sanctuary and On Sacred Ground. We are also adding four new titles to our Healthy Pet series: Healthy Dachshund, Healthy Golden, Healthy Lab and Healthy Pug.

    As we move forward with our mission to illuminate spirit in the world, we remain mindful of our responsibility to the planet we share. As part of

    our commitment to the environment, we planted 100,000 trees in 2012 and have committed to plant 120,000 in 2013. Trees for the Future estimates that these trees, along with those previously planted, will remove 8,250 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere every year more than 16 times the CO2 produced annually by our publishing operations.

    We begin 2013 full of optimism and goodwill, and we extend our deepest gratitude to our customers, artists, authors, representatives and friends all over the world. Please stay in touch. Send us email, visit us on Facebook or drop us a card in the mail. We love hearing from you.

    Love and blessings to all.

Bees are a symbol of nature and of industry and productivity. Humans have been keeping bees for millennia, recognizing the insects value in agriculture, while seeing something like ourselves in their orderly society and the geometric beauty of the homes they build. Bees are an essential part of the earths ecosystem, with their services as pollinators directly linked to the worlds food supplies. Known as peaceful and industrious creatures, bees reward their keepers with everything from increased garden bounty to jars of golden honey.

    full of fun factoids and gorgeous photographs, the Bee Happy wall calendar is a celebration of bees and everything about them the flowers that feed them, the hives that house them, and the universal benefits they bestow on humankind.

    Listening to the sound of silence,

    the song of peace arises in the heart of all.

    Honshin

    The Zen Cat wall calendar is a meditation in art and words on the sacredness and interconnectedness of all life. artist and author nicholas kirsten-honshin uses painting and poetry to communicate a message from the pure heart of the universe.

    In Honshins own words, here is the story as it happened: While I was quietly reading the Lotus sutra, the original Zen cat, miss kitty, climbed onto my lap. As I continued to read, I became aware that her mind and mine were becoming one. She wanted me to read aloud to her. So I did. There she sat in meditation, focused on the teachings as I read. Her appreciation and obvious understanding opened my own mind and heart to the oneness that exists, connecting all living beings in the gentle love and compassion that is in every precious moment.

    Based on One Song: A New Illuminated Rumi, The Illuminated Rumi wall calendar is an interweaving of poetry and art: a magnificent meeting of ancient tradition and modern interpretation that uniquely captures the spiritual wealth of Rumis teachings. Michael Greens magical art, along with his sensitive renderings of Rumis poetry, makes this work a classic guide to the life of the soul for a whole new generation of seekers.

    Rumi is still one of this countrys most-read poets and is a major spokesman for open, boundary-crossing spirituality. The Illuminated Rumi, first published in 1997, is still a phenomenon with over 100,000 copies in print.

    Michael Green has written and illustrated many books, including The Illuminated Rumi, The I Ching Journals, The Illuminated Prayer and The Unicornis Manuscripts.

    Other products by Michael Green include a Celtic Blessings wall calendar (page 44) and mini calendar (page 61). Illuminated Rumi and Celtic Blessings greeting cards are also available. Please visit www.amberlotus.com for more information.
