The Story of The Ringing Cedars
of Russia Book Series

The story began in 1994 on the bank of the River Ob amidst the endless expanses of the Siberian taiga. The well-known Siberian entrepreneur Vladimir Megre met with two elderly gentlemen who told him about the amazing properties of the Siberian cedar (also known in the West as the Siberian pine). At first he didn't pay much attention to what they told him, but as he continued to reflect on it, Vladimir began to discover, in the historical and scientific literature he examined, more and more evidence supporting their words. Finally he decided to organize an expedition with a fleet of river steamers. The expedition was ostensibly for commercial purposes, but in actual fact his overriding motivation was to find the elders again and learn more about the secrets of the cedar.

A meeting which changed a life

Having instructed his fleet's captain to maintain their course, Vladimir slipped away by himself at the exact spot where he had met the two elders the previous year. On the riverbank he found a woman waiting for him who turned out to be their granddaughter. She called herself Anastasia . This woman, through the depth of her knowledge, her sincere love and her outlook on the world, was to have a profound influence on Vladimir 's whole life.
At first he saw her simply as a young attractive woman who, though she appeared quite knowledgeable about modern urban society, seemed to be utterly naive in her aspirations to change that society from her remote location far off in the wilds of Siberia.

Later, however, Vladimir came face to face with certain psychic abilities of Anastasia's which defied explanation, even though they were undeniably real to his perception inexplicably manifesting themselves in a tragic struggle of virtue against vice which unfolded before his very eyes. He was shaken by scenes somehow presented to him from his not-too-distant past, but from a totally new point of view. Now able to look at his own and others' behaviour more objectively, Vladimir gained a new appreciation of what Anastasia was endeavouring to do, and in an effort to help, he promised to fulfil Anastasia's request and write a book about his experiences.


Upon returning to his home in Novosibirsk , Vladimir made a series of unsuccessful attempts to spread this new outlook on the world among his friends. He went to Moscow and tried to organize a league of pure-minded entrepreneurs again without success. Finding himself on the edge of an abyss, he finally remembered his promise to Anastasia to write a book, along with her assurance that the book would help many people see the world in a new light and give him the strength to go forward.

Then something incredible happened: without any specialised training, Vladimir Megre launched into writing a series of books which in a very short time became extraordinarily popular, selling in the millions, and would be translated into some twenty languages. Each passing day introduced more and more new readers all over the world to these remarkable writings.

The books set forth in very clear language profound ideas about the education of children and the importance of communicating with living Nature ideas ranging from nutrition and health to spirituality and sexual relations. With their practical wisdom on matters of everyday life, the books have become the basis for a number of sociological studies and scholarly papers.

Reader's Reviews

"Anastasia Wows the Soul!"

Says Mark Victor Hansen, best-selling author of the chicken Soup for the Soul Series and outspoken advocate of organic food-production.

Thanks so very much for sending the 3 first books. We are right now finishing the last one, and are finding them very valuable.

I am just changing my website and mailing list carrier, so I will soon be getting out a message to others about the books.

We would love to have the other 5 books and will encourage people to buy all 8 on your special!

Anastasia is the most powerful human being alive today. And this series of books go beyond the beauty of anything I have ever read in my life. People like her truly make me proud to be a human being. If you read one series of books in your life make it this one. You will be amazed at the shear wonder and utter astonishment that these books produce. Thank you so very much .this is truly a sacred gift. and a bessing from the heavens above.

Of the books I have read so far in the series this is the most powerful. We see here that we can take back our power which we have given away thru various arms of our society. Anastasia gives us powerful prayers to reafirm our divinity. I found this book very uplifting and enabling to be able to claim our own link with thye divine in no uncertain terms.


Would like to become a distributor for these products. I see nothing more important than to circluate Anastasia's splendid image to all people of the Earth asap. The faster the image spreads, the faster we will have a splendid paradise to live in!

I would like to spread the word, as I have been doing to a broader number of people. I am interesting in the Kin's Domains and to this end we are meeting shortly with a group of like-minded people in SE Queensland, Australia.

Hi, dear Anastasia and Vladimir,

I am Mehmet from Turkey, 16. Your first book published in the Turkey in this week. I just bought 3 books for me and other two friends.

Mehmet, Turkey

I want to do all I can to bring Anastasia's vision to fruition. There is nothing else that really measures up and I have been looking since 1974 in various ways and paths . My son is 4 now so I am anxious not to enroll him in the way of life that is only now falling away.

My name is Semisi and I am a Pacific Islander raised in the Islands of Hawaii. I now reside in the Mountains of Utah in the U.S.A. I am married with four beautiful children, and I have been a Massage Therapist for thirteen years. I am the fifth oldest of fourteen children raised in the Mormon religion. One of my brothers is also a Massage Therapist, and we throughout our careers have experienced a great deal of "spiritual" phenomena working with our clients.

My brother told me about your books he ordered, and highly suggested I begin with book one. I did, and my life was and is changed FOREVER!!! :) I proceeded all the way to book six, and anxiously await when the next books in Russian will be translated into English. How do I put into words my feelings of gratitude for you, Anastasia and your son without writing a book??? Ha-ha! I even would offer a word of American Political Blasphemy and say that: I would go so far as to willingly give up my American Citizenship to become a Russian, to actively participate with you and the creation of Anastasia's Dream!

Well, thank you, thank you, thank you, for your books! Have a blessed day wherever you are, and I hope to come and visit your beautiful Domains in Russia someday. I now have my most ultimate Goal to create a family Domain here in Utah, and in my home islands in Hawaii as well! Please, please, please, let me know when the next books are translated into English.

Have a wonderful day, Sincerely with all my Heart,

Semisi, Hawaii

The message of these books is so important for humanity. My husband and I touch the lives of thousands of people in our large low cost Qigong events... I want to explore incorporating Anastasia\'s message and ideas with what we do.

I send you rays of Love,
Anne Jinnett

I would like to say that there could not have been a better writer for these books then Vladimir for that he shows in his actions what this world needs, starting from zero to showing what needs to be done in its own way.

Thanks for that great masterpiece that he creates and so many people want to follow.

It is interesting that the Chinese story of the Tao - Way of Nature that has been pioneered by millions of nature lovers for the past 8,000 years and I just want to add this to the Anastasia wave of loving and beautiful energy.

Being more than half a century old myself, and a Chinese born in Malaysia and lived half of my life in Malaysia and half in other parts of the world including China, India, Europe and America, I found myself embracing both my Taoist Chinese cultural roots of love and respect for Nature as well as many diverse cultures and spiritual paths in the West. I have also been fortunate enough to live in many wonderful eco friendly and spiritual communities in India, China, Scotland and U.S.A. and truly there is a new wave of heart body mind spirit people coming together all over the globe.

Having practised the Tao all my life and being a teacher of teachers in this ancient art of Tai Chi and Chi Kung for the past 35 years, I am eternally always grateful every time I hear and read of stories of unique courageous and amazing wise beings like Anastasia coming forth to share the urgency of loving and respecting the creator and connecting that role to one's own co-creative position. My deepest respect also goes to Vladimir Megre too, your brave and intuitive sense of trust and devotion to the your soul mate Anastasia is impeccable and admirable. Well done to you, you are a Warrior of Peace, Harmony and Love for humanity.

I do understand some of Vladimir's trials as an author. I do empathize with you when readers write to appreciate you as well as criticise you. I am also an author myself and recently shared in my two books '15 Ways to a Happier You - Tai Chi Chi Kung' and '37 Steps to Happiness - with an introduction to Aqua Tai Chi' - the urgency to return to Nature's wisdom and become a co-creator of beauty, health, joy and peace. I am grateful that it has already reached more than 150,000 readers and I am myself Director of my own School of Tai Chi Chi Kung here in Devon, where we have 5 acres of magnificent land. We have for the past 10 years been planting trees, and feeding the plants with beautiful energy of gratitude, love and peace. We also feed our students with the vegetables and healing herbs which we grow and so many people are healed of illness and stress every day. So, truly Vladimir, the most important fact are the positive and life enhancing results of your books and your work and to the people who are simply jealous, spiteful and suspicious, they really need to go and look in the mirror themselves to see how they can grow and change for the better. Life is short, there is so much to learn and so much to succeed in service to humanity, why waste one's energy attacking verbally or masquerading as Anastasia? There is only one Vladimir, there is only one Anastasia, there is only one unique 'YOU', just as every single leaf, every golden ray of sunrise is fresh and new, let us celebrate all the special gifts and talents each person has been blessed with.

Truly, we are co-creators together. The ancient Chinese have its own Natural Wisdom that imparts the urgency for humanity to link the heavenly, human and earth energies together in a dance of oneness. I send you our Tai Chi Chi Kung greeting of energy, as Tai Chi means, the River of Energy which flows limitlessly, touching everyone and flowing with everyone.

I send you Vladimir, Anastasia and all the readers our love and gratitude, keep growing and keep glowing from your true Being.
