I Am A Fiesta
by D.E. Percy

I am a Fiesta. I just love those words. If you say them out loud enough times, with feeling, the magical is summoned and marvellous things happen. There’s something spirited in the words that call up a love of life and dance and celebration; all the rhythm and charm of living to reconnect with life’s cycles, seasons, and spirals, with love and libido.

Standing in the Fire

A companion book for facing the loss of a loved-one and life without them

by D.E. Percy

Losing someone you love is a painful and often lonely time.

You have a companion in this book.

Based on heartfelt and professional experience, you will be guided on an inner pilgrimage through the terrain of loss, grief and recovery, including the arrival and initiation at the three thresholds.  Along the way, suggested contemplation and rituals provide an active part of healing and meaning.

Story, commentary, spiritual teachings and poetry flow to form meaning, companionship and shelter from the fire of grief.  Then beyond the third threshold we again find solid ground so that we can make our contribution to life and live well.

Paperback published November 3rd, 2020. Limited edition available now.  

The DNA of CULTURE

What Directors need to know about this untapped resource
by D.E. Percy

There may come a day, when you choose to get very, very good at understanding and working with culture. It is both a science and an art and one worthy of your investigation. Especially because as a board the stakes have gone up.

As board members and leaders, the simple fact is that governance, along with company survival, is getting tougher. It is spreading across industries and sectors.

People at the top of the organisation are named as responsible for the culture and the wisest see it is their greatest untapped resource.

The DNA of Culture is written for Directors and gives you the insights and secrets that until now, only the few best practitioners knew.
