Laurie Sones was born in Essex, UK in 1950. His Christian upbringing coupled with a love of music led him to become a leading church choirboy. But this spiritual side was brought into sharp question when his mother, so much the driving force in his life, died before he had yet reached 18 years old. Laurie began a quest for wider philosophical and spiritual answers. Study has concentrated on two distinct areas: philosophy and healing.
His first work, A Pocketful of Reasoning, illustrates not just depth and breadth of philosophical study but a capacity for practical suggestions the individual could follow. It represents over 40 years of ongoing experience, work and deliberation with the subject matter.
The Principle of Gift, his second work, majors on creativity and the application of its fundamental principles for use in the lives of ordinary people. It also serves as a much shortened and simplified version of its predecessor with some common usage of material.
'Healing You: The New Keys' on the subject of self-healing is the author's third publication. The fourth, 'You Can Heal Yourself : The Seven Day Healing Programme', tackles the full practical side of self-healing and lays out a programme of exercises.
The fifth work 'The Principle of Gift II: And When I Die?' reconnects to the original 'The Principle of Gift' concepts and deals directly with death and what may exist beyond it.
Two more books are already in various stages of development. The aim is to produce a series of concise works (2/3 hour reads) under the broad umbrella of 'Realign Your Thinking, Realign Your Life'.
The author welcomes contact from readers. (“There is always more for each of us to learn. The journey is never complete”).
Laurie Sones is a qualified advanced hypnotherapist.
Kids questions, your answers. This short work explains Santa’s existence and provides for parents direct answers to questions that all children ask when confronted with the chatter of the playground. Santa is a very important figure that needs explanation.
What happens when we die? In the original Principle of Gift work we established a purpose for the universe and identified a guiding fundamental within which that universe operates. Man was a creative being and creativity itself the critical factor in the universe's functioning. But is Man just a disposable pawn in a grand game? In this work we look at death and if we can survive it.
At last, a practical guide of action for any person affected by illness.
The programme, which has already achieved outstanding results, comprises four specific activities each day. It does not interfere with any medical care.
The theories supporting the programme are explained in full.
If not for yourself, then it might be a kindness to think of somebody else who needs help at this time.
This short work redefines the term 'self-healing'. It sweeps away old misconceptions that self-healing is something that operates against modern medical practices, and that it is nothing more than a futile mind game.
The true model of self-healing established here is one of practical understanding and practical action for those in need. Self-healing is real, is critical, and it works!
This work brings to light a major functioning principle of life and explains how the individual can enjoy it in his day-to-day existence. It simultaneously establishes creativity as the fundamental tool for us all to use. 'The Principle of Gift' is a 2-3 hour read that simplifies universal concepts yet maintains a challenge for the reader.
Behind a simple title lies a very challenging work for any reader ready to take on its rigours. Who am I? How do I connect with the universe? Are there any rules? Pocketful confronts these issues head-on without dogma. In a world already questioning the wisdom of its conventional religions the ordinary man has often been left to search elsewhere for moral guidance. Pocketful seeks to fill the void

Creative, all-encompassing and HONEST. This book opened my eyes wide. Mark Coker is not only thoughtful and hard-working but not above accepting new ideas from others for something that is already a very fine product. All authors should read both this and his Marketing Guide, which itself took me down avenues I really would never have thought of. Thanks Mark, and congratulations on a job well done.
