When a tragic accident downs a tourist boat off the coast of Hawaii, dolphin researcher Kaia Oana is one of the first in the water, risking her own life to try and save others. She’s enlisted to help the US Navy find out what really happened—utilizing her specially trained dolphins to help. Kaia and Lieutenant Commander Jesse Matthews team up in the investigation—but as they edge closer to the truth about the incident, their own lives are threatened. Will a spirit of grace and forgiveness prevail or will it be overshadowed by the distant echoes of past pain and the imminent danger from a cold-blooded killer? Black Sands As a volcano on Hawaii begins to rumble, family crisis brings an unlikely couple together. Annie's the brainy type, quietly assisting her father in his volcano research. She's always admired her brother's friend Mano for his outgoing athletic ways, but her devotion turns to disdain after Mano's mistake results in her older brother's untimely death. Mano's mistake haunts him. It cost his best friend's life. But just as he's bringing Tomi's belongings to his family, Mano discovers Tomi is alive—and in serious danger. That danger threatens to spill over to the rest of the family. Annie and Mano join forces to discover the source of the threat against the family, even as a long-inactive volcano rumbles in the distance. Dangerous Depths Sometimes life's most precious treasure lies at Dangerous Depths. Leia ditched a promising medical career to settle on a secluded island in Hawaii. Her ex-fiancé Bane has come to the island to find out why. When an act of sabotage pushes Bane closer to Leia, they are plunged into a tangle of emotion and peril—just as a series of threatening natural events grip the island. Midnight Sea Losing her sight turns Lani’s world upside down, bringing danger, mystery . . . and unexpected romance. A seemingly random shooting at her aunt's coffee farm has left Lani Tagama blind. Now she must learn to navigate in a world of darkness. With the help of an ex-cop named Ben and a half-trained guide dog, Lani begins to regain her former independence. Then Lani and Ben discover that her injury wasn’t caused by a random shooting. It was a botched murder attempt. They must work together to discover the identity of the would-be murderer before he strikes again. Holy Night One sinister phone call has derailed their wedding. Will they let it tear them apart forever? A Christmas wedding on the beach—what could be more perfect? Poinsettias and fragrant pikake blossoms, soft sand and mistletoe, the gentle sound of the surf and the wedding march played on a ukulele. This wedding has been a long time coming—with Bane's trust issues and Leia's worries about her childlike sister, Eva. Now they can hardly wait for the day to arrive. Thrilled to be a bridesmaid, Eva keeps trying on her ruffled dress. The tent is reserved, the caterers are paid. Everything is going as planned—until Leia's phone rings and her world skids out of control. A muffled voice informs Leia that Eva's been kidnapped and will be killed unless Leia calls off the wedding without explanation—and no police! If she disobeys instructions and tells Bane, she'll risk her beloved sister's life. But how can she ever handle this without his help? And how can he ever trust her if she lies to him now?

Das Hotel Honolulu auf Hawaii, nicht weit vom Strand, hat seine besten Tage lange hinter sich. Achtzig Zimmer - achtzig Gäste - achtzig Geschichten: ein eigenes Universum. Hier wird ein Schriftsteller unverhofft Manager und findet in den Geschichten der liebenswert-exzentrischen Hotelgäste genug Stoff für ein ganzes Leben. Im Hotel Honolulu steigen Hochzeitsreisende, Strandurlauber, ruhelose Seelen und notorische Lügner ab. Hier treffen sich Hawaiianer und Urlaubsgäste, und sie alle sind auf der Suche nach etwas: Sonne, Liebe, Glück - und manche Sehnsüchte bleiben namenlos. Buddy Hamstra, der verschwenderische Lebemann und Hotelbesitzer, bietet einem Schriftsteller den Posten als Hotelmanager an. Der zögert nicht lange - nach einem ruhelosen Leben und geplagt von einer Schreibblockade ist es Zeit für einen Neubeginn. Im Hotel Honolulu trifft er nicht nur auf Sweetie, die die Mutter seiner Tochter werden wird, sondern auch auf skurrile Hotelgäste: Da ist Eddie, der seiner Frau zum Geburtstag stets einen Liebhaber organisiert; oder Benno, der Befriedigung in den traurigen Schicksalen ehemaliger Vorzeigeschüler findet; oder der Dauergast, dessen geräuschvolles Liebesleben alle in die Irre führt. Sie bilden ein Panoptikum aus unerfüllter Liebe, geplatzten Träumen, spannenden Geschichten und kuriosen Begegnungen.

Ingerman ist eine der bekanntesten Vertreterinnen des modernen Schamanismus (vgl. "Heilung für Mutter Erde"; "Auf der Suche nach der verlorenen Seele"). Als ausgebildete Paar- und Familientherapeutin verbindet sie alte schamanische Techniken mit modernen psychotherapeutischen Methoden. Vorliegende Medienkombination erschien 2010 erstmals als Hardcover u.d.T. "Die schamanische Erfahrung. Ein Weg in die Tiefe der Seele" (hier nicht angezeigt). Ingerman und Paläontologe Wesselman sowie 4 weitere Experten stellen - konzentriert um den Terminus "schamanische Reisen"--Die zentralen Themen der schamanischen Heilungs- und Transformationsrituale vor: u.a. die Heilkräfte der Natur zu nutzen, mit Träumen, Licht und Klang zu arbeiten und Tod und Sterben als Übergangsrituale zu ehren. Mit Übungen. Auf der Begleit-CD Trommel- und Rasselstücke zur Begleitung der meditativen schamanischen Reisen. - Grundlagentitel, der allerdings nicht als Selbsthilfemanual für Anfänger gedacht ist, sondern als Begleitmaterial zu einer fundierten Einweisung und Praxis in schamanische Rituale Sinn macht
