<B>Coming to Our Senses </B><I> Healing Ourselves and the World Through Mindfulness</I>, KABAT-ZINN, JON
3 Coming to Our Senses Healing Ourselves and the World Through Mindfulness
KABAT-ZINN, JON
0749925884 / 9780749925888 2005 Paperback 
Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of the widely praised Wherever You Go, There You Are shows how the power of mindfulness can bring profound changes to your personal life. As stress continues to exact a toll on everyday life, we are increasingly turning to ancient, meditative methods, which have been tested by science, to reduce stress and become more focused and healthy in our everyday lives. Jon Kabat-Zinn has been for decades at the forefront of the mind/body movement and the subsequent revolution in medicine and health care, both demystifying it and bringing it into the mainstream. In Coming To Our Senses, he shares his belief that every human has the capacity to mobilize deep, innate resources for continual learning, growing, healing and transformation through mindfulness. Woven into eight parts, Coming To Our Senses: Uses anecdotes and stories from Kabat-Zinn's own life experiences and work to illustrate the realm of healing possibilities: Offers a remarkable insight into how to use the five senses - touch, hearing, sight, taste, and smell - as a path to a healthier, saner, and more meaningful life.

<B>Creative Spiritual Research </B><I> Awakening the Individual Human Spirit</I>, HOUTEN, COENRAAD VAN
4 Creative Spiritual Research Awakening the Individual Human Spirit
HOUTEN, COENRAAD VAN
1906999287 / 9781906999285 2011 Paperback 
This book... will appeal to those who are in touch with their inner creative impulses, or are motivated but do not know how to begin. The aim is to make this spiritual path possible for every person. It can change the way one relates to life and work - at first simply by an attitude shift, as a questioning, caring human being, taking seriously the spiritual forces that manifest in all outer phenomena.'
How do adults learn and develop? How can adult learning become a living, growing process?
Based on the application of the 'seven life processes', Coenraad van Houten has successfully developed the methods of 'Vocational Learning' (Awakening the Will, 1999) and 'Destiny Learning' (Practising Destiny, 2000). Here, in the culmination of his research trilogy, he presents a new path of adult learning which he calls 'Creative Spiritual Research'. Based on the inner spiritual path of the individual, this is a method that relates to esoteric schooling, thresholds of consciousness and human creativity.
Part One of Creative Spiritual Research features guidelines and exercises for individual practice, whilst Part Two focuses on the general schooling path as a preparation or precondition, opening the inner space needed for research as well as a questioning attitude.
COENRAAD VAN HOUTEN was born in the Netherlands in 1922. After studying Chemistry, Economics and Social Pedagogy, he lived and worked in Holland, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Britain as a manager in business, as a consultant, and as the director of the Centre for Social Development (which he co-founded). He has developed specialist programmes and seminars for educating adults, and presently advises organizations on training programmes. He is the author of Awakening the Will, Practising Destiny, The Threefold Nature of Destiny Learning, and is the co-founder of the New Adult Learning Movement.

The author explores the inner journeys of Jacob Boehme, the seventeenth-century Protestant mystic, and C.G. Jung, the twentieth-century depth psychologist. Each was concerned with the immediacy of experience, yet comprehended the importance of spirit as a transforming presence in human life. Kathryn Wood Madden connects the experiences of these two pioneers. She examines those experiences from the perspective of depth psychology and religion, offering meaningful insights for anyone on a path of inner development, as well as for professionals in clinical settings.

<B>Forgiveness Project, The </B><I> Stories for a Vengeful Age</I>, CANTACUZINO, MARINA
8 Forgiveness Project, The Stories for a Vengeful Age
CANTACUZINO, MARINA
1849055661 / 9781849055666 2015 Hardback 
"Examining themes of forgiveness, reconciliation and conflict transformation, this book brings together the personal testimonies of both survivors and perpetrators of crime and violence and asks the question whether forgiveness may have more currency than revenge in an age which seems locked into the cycle of conflict. The powerful real life stories collected by The Forgiveness Project come from ordinary people around the world in a diverse range of situations, including those who have transformed aggression into a driving force for peace. Raising the possibility of alternatives to resentment, retaliation and revenge, each story shows the very real impact of forgiveness (or lack of forgiveness) within a particular context, provoking questions such as 'what is forgiveness?', 'how can you respond to the unforgivable?' and 'can you move on without forgiveness?' Marina Cantacuzino's challenging, reflective introductory essay sets the stories in the larger context of approaches to forgiveness, from both religious and secular viewpoints, concluding that in the reality of lived experience forgiveness has a quality 'as mysterious as love'. As with all good storytelling each personal narrative in this book reveals both the intimate in the epic and the epic in the intimate. The Forgiveness Project grew out of a conviction that people's perspectives only shift when they are able to hear the stories of others. In ten years it has become a high impact and influential charity that has wide application and a universal draw on people. Using real stories of victims and perpetrators, the charity sets out to explore concepts of forgiveness and conflict resolution in order to humanise the 'other', foster resilient relationships and help to dissolve tension."

<B>Friend of My Heart: Meeting Christ in Everyday Life </B><I> </I>, BLATCHFORD, CLAIRE
9 Friend of My Heart: Meeting Christ in Everyday Life
BLATCHFORD, CLAIRE
0940262940 / 9780940262942 Paperback 
How, when, and where can one meet this Friend of every heart? My guess is that there are as many ways of meeting him as there are human beings in the world. I have heard of people who met him unexpectedly in near death experiences, during illnesses, or at crossroads in their lives. Some of these people saw and heard him, while for others the experience was less direct but no less meaningful. For example, they heard his voice or sensed his presence in the words or deeds of a friend or a stranger. I have also read of people meeting him because they earnestly desired it. Whether we are conscious or not of wanting to meet him, I believe his wish for the encounter is always present, but he never forces himself upon us. I have always felt complete respect from him for my freedom, both inner and outer" (from Friend of My Heart).

To open this book is to open yourself to the possibility of an extraordinary meeting. For this is the story of such a meeting, and it is one that can happen to anyone who wants it. The book begins as each of us must begin--with a declaration of hope, heartfelt longing, expectation. Gathered from more than twenty-five journals over twenty years, the messages in this book invite us to listen in the spirit of simplicity, openness, and faith, and then to be attentive to what stirs within. First comes the question: how, when and where can one meet this Friend of the heart? The answer comes from the author's experiences and the messages she has received inwardly. Made deaf by illness at the age of six, Claire Blatchford speaks to us about how to listen and how to hear from our own inner and outer lives.

These are primary messages, put into the context of the author's life, that enable us, in the context of our own lives, to enter into a relationship with this Being who is the Friend of every heart. Friend of My Heart leaves us with the profound sense that we can all stand truly as our own selves in the presence of love.

<B>Fruits and Gifts of the Spirit </B><I> </I>, KEATING, THOMAS
10 Fruits and Gifts of the Spirit
KEATING, THOMAS
1930051212 / 9781930051218 Paperback 
Thomas Keating has spent over fifty years in sustained practice and devotion to the spiritual life. The results of this creative, humble activity are now summarized in this remarkable book, Fruits and Gifts of the Spirit.
As Father Keating says, the spiritual journey is a gradual process of enlarging our emotional, mental, and physical relationship with the divine reality that is present in us, but one not ordinarily accessible to our emotions or concepts. The spiritual journey teaches us: first, to believe in the Divine Indwelling within us, fully present and energizing every level of our being; secondly, to recognize that this energy is benign, healing, and transforming; and, thirdly, to enjoy its gradual unfolding step-by-step both in prayer and action.

<B>Group Meditation </B><I> </I>, LIPSON, MICHAEL
11 Group Meditation
LIPSON, MICHAEL
0880107308 / 9780880107303 
"This book comes from joy." With these words, Michael Lipson begins his offering, the fruit of many years of study and practice. Group Meditation is both a practical introduction to the power of meditation in groups and a challenging review of the meaning of meditation itself.

Continuing themes he introduced in his earlier book, Stairway of Surprise, in Group Meditation Lipson shows how ordinary capacities such as thinking and feeling can be intensified without limit in a group setting, so that these capacities transmit the most intimate truths of nature and being. There are aspects of the world that are too vast to be borne by one person alone; to approach them, a group is needed. Theme-based meditation, as Lipson demonstrates, links those practitioners together in a special kind of community that can endure greater light.

With repeated exercise, either in isolation or in community, attention oriented toward a high meaning grows more concentrated, more intense. It frees us to drop our self-concern and, instead, take in the full shock of our shared existence on Earth. It helps us, finally, "to be, ourselves, the news from heaven."

12 Inner Development Seven Lectures, Rotterdam, 15-22 August, 1938
TOMBERG, VALENTIN, BLOEDON, RICHARD, BLOEDON, PATRICIA
0880103639 / 9780880103633 1992 Paperback 
black & white illustrations
The focus of this book is the spiritual work in the "school"-the community-of Michael. What does this mean? At the end of the eighteenth century, the Archangel Michael revealed the new mystery that has manifested on Earth as spiritual science, or anthroposophy. Its essence involves the renewal of our knowledge of the mysteries of karma and human destiny. Those who are drawn to this school have a special relationship to the human faculty of thinking-their inner feeling for truth has the strength of iron. This feeling for truth helps them to become companions of Michael at the threshold of the spiritual world. These talks deal with the spiritual path of anthroposophy in its Christian Rosicrudian aspect. Tomberg speaks openly and honestly about meditation, the various stages of consciousness (imagination, inspiration, and intuition), the "guardian of the threshold," and the esoteric trials one encounters along the way. He concludes by describing the life of Rudolf Steiner as the life of a Christian initiate.

14 Inner Work Path, The A Foundation for Meditative Practice
ROMERO, LISA
1621480593 / 9781621480594 2014 
The Inner Work Path provides accessible insights into the workings of the human soul, outlines its relationship to the spiritual life, and shows the way to develop and strengthen our inner capacities through practical exercises, experience and deep understanding. By building a bridge between the spiritual and the earthly, the unfolding of these soul capacities awakens the consciousness with which to engage and transform our inner lives.

”Every step an individual takes affects the collective development of humanity. The world we experience now is a result of the inner work of past generations. By consciously working to understand and experience our connection to the higher worlds we are more able to fully realise and contribute to the higher unfolding of humankind” – Lisa Romero

LISA ROMERO is a practising homeopath and adult educator who has applied anthroposophy to her practice since 1990 and delivered education enriched with anthroposophy since 1998. Since 2006 the primary focus of her work has been teaching inner development and anthroposophical meditation and more recently writing books on this subject.

Lisa lectures and presents workshops and retreats on inner work and anthroposophical meditation for professional and personal development. These are offered throughout the year in many communities within Australia, Asia and the United States. Lisa’s capacity to deliver esoteric wisdom with insight and understanding allows her to meet diverse needs of communities and professions.

For several years Lisa was the lecturer for Health and Nutrition and Male/Female Studies at Sydney Rudolf Steiner College (Parsifal College) where she now continues to lecture the tutors on inner development. She also designed and facilitated the Educaredo Towards Health and Healing course. This training ran eight, year-long courses working with therapists from all modalities as well as Waldorf teachers to bring the practical application of therapeutic and pedagogical methods. She has taught on numerous trainings and seminars for several organisations.

ROMERO, LISA
1621481522 / 9781621481522 Paperback 
"Even before we are called to the stages of higher development, we can prepare ourselves by understanding the way and the truth of the unfolding schooling we shall take.

It also discusses the well-trodden path of inner development, helping us understand the experiences we encounter as we move as individual through the several stages of consciousness.

Working with this book supports clarity for those who are striving to make headway on the path and are experiencing encounters in the inner realms. It also helps us understand the efforts and experiences of others on their journey.

<B>Love and the Evolution of Consciousness </B><I> A Study of the Transformation of the Human Soul, the Double, and the Spirit</I>, RIVERS, KAREN L.
16 Love and the Evolution of Consciousness A Study of the Transformation of the Human Soul, the Double, and the Spirit
RIVERS, KAREN L.
1584209801 / 9781584209805 
“We have not understood yet that the discovery of the unconscious means an enormous spiritual task, which must be accomplished if we wish to preserve our civilization.” —C. G. Jung

“Love is ultimately the most meaningful of human experiences. In all its various forms, love leads us to the fulfillment of human existence. Love has the power to unite us with our true self, to unite us with the spiritual essence in others, and it has the power to carry us on wings of selflessness to unite with the Divine.” —Karen Rivers

In this compelling and meticulously crafted book, Karen Rivers expresses the imperative need of individuals to walk a path of inner development that can lead to an ever-growing capacity for selfless love. Inspired by the work of Rudolf Steiner and Valentin Tomberg, the author presents insights and strategies for understanding and transforming impure aspects of one’s self to cultivate heart thinking.

The author describes the complexities of the human soul and the ninefold double; examines thought patterns, default feeling responses, and subconsciously driven reactions of the double; and discusses the dynamics of karma and the power of forgiveness as they relate to our path toward the embodiment of conscious love. This journey is further illuminated by stories of remarkable individuals who courageously and selflessly devoted their lives to the mission of love.

Love and the Evolution of Consciousness concludes with a meditation course for cultivating will forces and transforming the inner self.

“One must not say that the world is imperfect because it contains evil. Far rather, is it perfect precisely on that account. The creators of the world needed evil in order to bring the good to development. A good must first be broken on the rock of evil. The All-Love can be brought to its highest blossoming through only self-love.” —Rudolf Steiner

17 Male and Female Developing Human Empathy
URIELI, BARUCH
1902636252 / 9781902636252 2001 Paperback 
Male and Female is an important contribution to the sociological and political minefield of gender studies. Beginning with the threads of the male and female elements in cosmic evolution, the author studies the mythological and Judaic-Christian traditions, culminating in the present situation of the sexes within contemporary Western culture.

Baruch Urieli develops the theme of "empathy" as a guiding star for male-female relationships based on inter-recognition, inter-acceptance and inter-dependence. Through the power of empathy it will become possible for individuals and couples increasingly to perceive their true destiny and bring a new order into this area of human and world evolution.
