<B>Barefoot through the Burning Lava </B><I> On Sicily, the Island of Cain – An Esoteric Travelogue</I>, MERYER, T H
1 Barefoot through the Burning Lava On Sicily, the Island of Cain – An Esoteric Travelogue
MERYER, T H
1906999945 / 9781906999940 
Drawn by the mysterious mount Etna, Thomas Meyer sets off on a quest to discover the secrets of the Mediterranean islands of Sicily and Stromboli. The Sicilian region is not only famous for the drama of its live volcanoes, but also for its associations with numerous cultural figures – ranging from Cain, Empedocles, Klingsor and the much maligned Cagliostro, through to Goethe and Rudolf Steiner. The author ponders their lives, work and karmic connections, whilst unexpected meetings with cryptic strangers result in discussions that are filled with spiritual insights and pearls of wisdom.

Meyer’s travelogue is at once engaging, poetic and deeply esoteric, drawing parallels between the burning lava of Etna and Stromboli and the soul lava through which our spiritual feet must wade in the present day. In meditations on the Guardian of the Threshold and the explosive popularity of football, we are led to the conclusion that today human beings need to develop ‘spiritual feet’ to cross the boundary to higher worlds. The author’s final trip coincides with the recent natural catastrophe in Nepal, which prompts him to ask whether humanity can begin to take inner responsibility for the many such disasters – particularly earthquakes and volcanic eruptions – that take place around the world. For these natural calamities, says Meyer, are intimately related to our untamed passions and emotions.

T.H. MEYER was born in Switzerland in 1950. He is the founder and publisher of Perseus Verlag, Basel, and editor of the monthly journals Der Europäer and The Present Age. He is the author of several books including Milestones; In the Sign of Five; Ludwig Polzer-Hoditz, A Biography; D.N. Dunlop, A Biography; Rudolf Steiner’s Core Mission; The Bodhisattva Question; Clairvoyance and Consciousness and Reality, Truth and Evil. He is also the editor of Light for the New Millennium. Meyer has written numerous articles and gives seminars and lectures around the world.

<B>Ethics for a Full World </B><I> Or, Can Animal-Lovers Save the World</I>, BURKEY, TORMOD, V.
2 Ethics for a Full World Or, Can Animal-Lovers Save the World
BURKEY, TORMOD, V.
1905570856 / 9781905570850 
The global emergencies facing the inhabitants of our planet—climate change, diminishing biodiversity, ocean acidification, overfishing, land degradation, and more—are symptoms of a common problem: the world is full. Humanity has already exceeded several planetary boundaries. The current situation is without precedent, and its manifestations are numerous. Ethics for a Full World argues that our dominant culture of anthropocentrism is an underlying cause of the world’s problems, threatening life as we know it.

Many today, especially those who care about other species, experience the blights that endanger our planet as deeply personal tragedies. Why are we not acting to save the world? Some say that humans won’t do anything until we feel the repercussions ourselves, but by then it will be too late. This book takes an uncompromising view of our culture, our democracy, and humankind, examining why it is so difficult to save the world from us.

In a globalised world, the most urgent issues are those that exhibit tipping points, as they may soon be too late to fix. Burkey argues that non-anthropocentric ethics, and those who adhere to them, could be the key to turning the tide. In a cry for meaningful and effective engagement, the author proposes a concrete first step to connect concerned individuals. This is a book for people who want to be part of the solution and who are not fooled by the feeble attempts for change been made so far.

One of the shortest, sharpest, clearest and most compelling descriptions of the causes and cures of our environmental bankruptcy that I have ever read.’ – Lloyd Timberlake, author of Environmental Politics for the 21st Century

‘A cure for narrow-mindedness, this provocative book should be required reading for politicians – and those who vote for them.’ – Brian Czech, President, Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy, author of Supply Shock: Economic Growth at the Crossroads

Tormod Burkey, PhD, studied ecology and conservation biology at Princeton. He is a biodiversity specialist, conservation scientist and environmental activist, as well as a birder, diver, sea kayaker and sailor.

Tormod loves animals with a vengeance, and longs to experience wildlife untrammelled by habitat degradation and persecution. He has struggled since childhood with the difficulties of saving endangered species, the natural world and the beautiful places on earth from human beings’ ignorance and greed. He lives in a cabin on the banks of the river Glomma, Norway, with ‘his’ cat Kitty, and writes for a diversity of publications and media outlets.
