Well Planet Publishing (50% off old pricing)

The Story of Well Planet Publishing Founders, Brothers Tom & Andy Hafer: Thanks to unusually socially engaging parents, Tom and Andy's childhoods were filled with mission trips, feeding the underprivileged, elderly care projects, refugee resettlement, and human rights rallies. They never forgot how freeing it felt to work on the positive side of change like their parents did. The brothers never had a messiah complex -thinking they could save the world - but they had witnessed so often the winds of change shift, like a cool spiritual breeze blowing off the ashes of despair, simply because a community started to collectively believe in itself. Once you experience the best of the human spirit dozens of times, it is hard not to be the eternal optimist when you contemplate our future as a society. So, the brothers have dedicated their professional lives to building dynamic communities who understand a Well Planet is possible, it is just a matter of changing the direction of the wind.

Ramble On

With only a backpack of worldly possessions, the distance hiker is acutely aware of need over want. Long silent contemplation through unspoiled woods allows him to reconnect with the Creator - shedding fears, doubts, and anxieties - while his ongoing physical efforts reduce his body weight, high blood pressure, borderline diabetes, and other chronic ailments and chemical dependencies. He steps with purpose; He is freed. With this new-found freedom, he allows himself to be open and vulnerable with others. Supportive community forms among hikers who are experiencing the same freedom. Ramble On finds our physical and spiritual center while hiking the Appalachian Trail (40% off retail on Amazon with the new publisher).

Soul Man

Once upon a time, one deeply troubled soul entered the woods in Georgia to hike the Appalachian Trail. Life became too much for him to handle; this would be his last hope to find any peace. Six months and five-million steps later, he emerged from the woods of Maine completely transformed: mind, body, and spirit. His long journey of physical exertion coupled with deep spiritual contemplation for months on end transformed him into the Soul Man. This hiker became a superhero of sorts, possessing the wisdom to heal a restless nation. This is the short story about our superhero, Soul Man (40% off retail on Amazon with the new publisher).

Aging Grace

Healthy one-hundred-year-olds tell us our Creator nourishes, nudges, and motivates us in the direction of sustainable health of body and spirit from cradle to the grave. We simply need to “be still”, listen, and be guided by their collected wisdom. We can discern God’s gentle voice from all the noise the world makes when we settle the dust we tend to kick-up while we are busy fighting the declining frailties of our aging bodies. From the wisdom of the healthy one-hundred-year-olds, we, too, can experience wellness and peace for a century (40% off of retail through Amazon with the new publisher).

Well Planet

Before becoming a monk, Brother Mark O’Reilly was an extraordinary small town physician. With his guru-like clarity, this one-hundred-year-old sage introduced Fitness as a Spiritual Discipline to his student, Hope. His timeless wisdom is for everyone who has fought the demons of weight-loss and won, then lost. Then gained, then lost. For the sake of our personal health, or neighbor, and the planet, we have never had a timelier message to embrace…once again (40% off of retail through Amazon with new publisher).
