<B>Book within the Temple </B><I> Spiritual Poems</I>, BINGHAM, MATTHEW R. A.
1 Book within the Temple Spiritual Poems
BINGHAM, MATTHEW R. A.
1938685148 / 9781938685149 
Published December 2016
Gray Night Undistinguished

Gray night, undistinguished.
It is all the same,
The eye cannot see it
There is no point of reference
It is a moving curtain
Drawn to a close.

I am the point of reference
Out side of me it is only the blanket of clouds
It is only the blanket one rolls in
It is only the softness like feathers.


Written on the Body

Written on the Body was really written on the Soul. She really loved into the words positive. She was building, spinning a wheel of wool, like no other. Shaking off flakes, rolling in dead leaves, brown. Written on the body words never read; steel words, stolen from her own heart – stolen away.

She was running in the night, a spring of cool water going back to the ground, into unearthed caverns, cyclically. I have walked over those caverns unknowing; past graves of souls risen. Only the headstone remains with their name whispered by their grandchildren, casting a shadow. They will not see the light.

Clouds have formed and dissolved over them, reflecting the light away from them.

<B>Brain Is a Boundary </B><I> A Journey in Poems to the Borderlines of Lewy Body Dementia</I>, DREIER, ALEXANDER, INTRODUCTION BY  ARTHUR ZAJONC
2 Brain Is a Boundary A Journey in Poems to the Borderlines of Lewy Body Dementia
DREIER, ALEXANDER, INTRODUCTION BY ARTHUR ZAJONC
1584209976 / 9781584209973 
"Dreier’s words dance along the ledge where reality and imagination converge."
- Carolyn Jourdan, author of Heart in the Right Place and Medicine Men: Extreme Appalachian Doctoring

This unique volume explores the experience of the "boundaries" in consciousness that permeate our lives - for instance, between sleeping and waking, language and reality, life and death, lover and beloved, observer and observed. We often take such boundaries for granted. But there is one boundary that most of us are spared: the boundary between reality and delusion, sanity and madness. This little book touches upon all of these thresholds in a singular way.

The author, a poet, comedian, and student of consciousness, finds himself gradually slipping from observing and noting such boundaries to crossing over from one world to another: from the world of ordinary, if enhanced, intuitive or poetic reality and perception to that of Lewy body dementia. The Brain Is a Boundary records his journey.

These fifty-two poems - along with an introduction by Arthur Zajonc, former President of the Mind-Life Institute, an afterword by Bradley Boeve, a renowned specialist in neurology, and an essay by the author recounting his Lewy body experiences in prose - constitute a remarkable and unique testimony that gives voice to an aspect of human experience that is all too often mute and ignored.

PRAISE FOR THE BRAIN IS A BOUNDARY . . .

“Alexander Dreier is a poet. To me, he is in the company of poets like e.e. cummings, who explores mystery with wit, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, who celebrates ‘all things counter, spare, original, strange.’ As a poet, he is brilliant, funny, original. His work is magical, mystical, and everywhere compassionate and witty. He takes us into darkness and gives us night vision. He is a bringer of light. His poems are the stuff of literature—the kind that changes and enlarges the vision of the reader. Unforgettable.” —Pat Schneider, author of Writing Alone and With Others and How the Light Gets In: Writing as a Spiritual Practice

“Lewy body disease is complex, with a myriad of symptoms that can be challenging to treat and manage. These beautifully written poems are an eloquent, inspiring example of resilience and creativity in the face of this life-changing illness.” —Jennifer Rose V. Molano, MD, Associate Professor of Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine, The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine

<B>Rime of the Ancient Mariner </B><I> </I>, COLERIDGE, SAMUEL TAYLOR,  MONTEFIORE, SOPHIA
6 Rime of the Ancient Mariner
COLERIDGE, SAMUEL TAYLOR, MONTEFIORE, SOPHIA
0946206627 / 9780946206629 2010 Hardback 
30 colour illustrations
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is one of the great classics of English Literature, considered by many to be the greatest ballad ever written in English. Composed at the end of the 18th century by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, its unique qualities have continued to capture the imagination of readers and artists throughout the
ages. Readers respond with awe to the power of the super-reality in the poem, experiencing the vast perspectives that surround the mariner, and sensing the greater wisdom residing in the elements. The poem potently expresses the monumental capacity for suffering inherent in the individual, as well as the complexity of harmonizing the extremes of one’s humanity. The creation of the 30 illustrations in this book by Sophia Montefiore was impelled by an abiding fascination with Coleridge’s perspectives into the world of the soul and the elemental powers of nature.

<B>She Would Draw Flowers </B><I> A Book of Poems by Kirsten Savitri Bergh.</I>, BERGH, KIRSTEN SAVITRI
7 She Would Draw Flowers A Book of Poems by Kirsten Savitri Bergh.
BERGH, KIRSTEN SAVITRI
0965086917 / 9780965086912 Paperback 
Illustrations
This poetry book, written by a 17 year 'young' woman, enbraces life, death and love in a way that invites us in. Authentic, light-filled and down-to-earth.

Kirsten Bergh was 17 when she died suddenly in a car accident. She Would Draw Flowers is her legacy of art and poetry which weaves a rich tapestry of joy, beauty and inner transformation. Waldorf education, which schools the imagination through story-telling, poetry and visual arts, gave her a wholistic view of the world while encouraging self-expression. At age 16, Kirsten faced the death of her father and other personal life challenges. Poetry was her way of penetrating through her grief and loss to confirm that love is the strongest thread in the fabric of life. This book is her offering that can inspire and guide us all in strengthening our living connection to people, nature and the cosmos.

90 pages.

<B>Sing Me the Creation </B><I> Creative Writing Sourcebook</I>, MATTHEWS, PAUL,  SARDELLO, ROBERT
8 Sing Me the Creation Creative Writing Sourcebook
MATTHEWS, PAUL, SARDELLO, ROBERT
190735963X / 9781907359637 1994 Paperback 
With colour and b&w illustrations.
“These exercises work. They are simple and immediately usable in a class; they all lead to creative satisfaction: i.e. they are practically imaginative” —Richard Ramsbotham

This new edition of Sing Me the Creation has been thoroughly updated throughout, and there is a new first chapter and a handy index for reference.

Sing Me the Creation is an inspirational workbook of creative writing exercises for poets and teachers, and for all who wish to develop the life of the imagination. Paul Mathews gives us permission to indulge our fantasy, and then, when that life is flowing, provides the tools to craft it into poetry and song.

There are numerous exercises for improving writing skills and for self study. They are also ideally suited for group work with adults. Teachers will find these exercises popular with students.

Paul Matthews, a poet himself, taught creative writing at Emerson College, Sussex.

“This book is quite simply the best I have ever come across on Creative Writing. I think this is because it has a spiritual direction, and therefore makes sense overall. Most such books end up by having no idea what it is all for. Paul shows us this, with great strength.” —Peter Redgrove, poet

“The most unusual guidebook for creative writing in the world … this book has wings.” —Robert Sardello, PhD, from his Foreword

<B>Thirty-three Meditations </B><I> </I>, HEDLEY BURTON, MICHAEL
9 Thirty-three Meditations
HEDLEY BURTON, MICHAEL
1466272112 / 9781466272118 
Poet Michael Hedley Burton has written a series of poems that attempt to grasp that illusive experience of selfhood. In the book's foreword he writes that there are two different kinds of self accessible to us, one built up from our earthly experience and the other overshadowing this as a kind of "higher self." The drama of who we are is founded very much on the kind of relationship existing within us between these two selves. The "Thirty-three Meditations" is a deeply Christian study - but not Christian in the sense of allegiance to any fixed form of religion. Here the emphasis is on one's own personal relationship to the divine within. In the final section we are taken into images that Burton received from a study of "The Fifth Gospel" - lectures given in 1913 by Rudolf Steiner. In looking for the essence of selfhood he found himself confronting the one known as Jesus of Nazareth whose destiny it was to sacrifice his earthly ego to become the bearer of the Christ. These are poems that will appeal to anyone who thinks deeply about life and who wants a book that can be kept by the bedside and studied over a period of time, always giving further thoughts. One reader, a psychologist, called it "33 forms of healing medicine for the human ego."

<B>Way of Seeing </B><I> Perception, Imagination, and Poetry.</I>, ALLISON, JOHN
10 Way of Seeing Perception, Imagination, and Poetry.
ALLISON, JOHN
158420012X / 9781584200123 2003 Paperback 
We usually think of imagination as a fanciful, whimsical faculty that has little to do with reality and truth. This beautifully written book by the Australian poet John Allison shows how ordinary imagination can be intensified to become an organ of cognition—a path of development to real knowing.
This beautifully written book by Australian poet John Allison shows how poetry can reveal aspects of the world invisible to science. Allison describes the path to 'true imagination', an intensification of ordinary imagination, which can lead to real knowing. He examines how poets such as Shakespeare, Blake, Coleridge, Keats, John Ruskin, Gerard Manley Hopkins and Rainer Maria Rilke have developed and practiced this kind of 'deep seeing'.
