The Publishers of "The Secret" Celebrate the International Launch of "Spiritual Teachings of the Avatar" by World-Renowned Vancouver Author Jeffrey Armstrong

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - June 9, 2010) - On June 29, 2010, Atria Books/Beyond Words, an imprint of Simon & Shuster and the publishers of "The Secret," will launch their newest author -- Jeffrey Armstrong -- and his new book "Spiritual Teachings of the Avatar: Ancient Wisdom for a New World,", at the Unity Church on Oak St at 7:00pm. 

The Academy Award-winning film AVATAR brought into world prominence one of the most important spiritual words of India, prompting audiences to wonder, "What does avatar really mean?" Armstrong explains that though the stories on which the Avatar teachings are based originated more than 5,000 years ago, they have reemerged in the modern world for good reason.

In "Spiritual Teachings of the Avatar," Armstrong, a scholar and expert in Eastern knowledge, shares the hidden messages of these historical Avatars, which offer solutions we can use today to sustain our planet and elevate our spiritual growth. "These Ultimate Avatars promoted the sacredness of all life and the secrets of awakening all beings to their full potential," explains Armstrong.

The book includes 16 pages of four-color art by award-winning artist Farel Dalrymple illustrating the two ancient epics Armstrong uses to illuminate the adventures of the Avatar.

EVENT: Join us on June 29th at Unity Church, 5840 Oak St, Vancouver, BC for the launch of "Spiritual Teachings of the Avatar" and be among the first to experience this ancient wisdom and the path to enlightenment. This event will feature author Jeffrey Armstrong, with special guest Cynthia Black, President and Editor-in Chief of Beyond Words Publishing. The event also features film director/writer/musician Pete McCormack as Master of Ceremonies.

Tickets are $35 or $65 and include a copy of the book (978-1-58270-281-0; $22.00 US, $24.99 Canadian). The event is sponsored by Banyen Books, Beyond Words Publishing, Conscious Living Radio, Silbury - The One Hub, and VASA Vedic Academy of Sciences & Arts.
