ISBN: 0863155669

The relationship between the human soul and the stars has been central to the spiritual and esoteric traditions of Western thought, and many other cultures, for thousands of years. Medieval Christians thought that heaven was located above the earth, beyond the stars. Our modern society, however, has largely severed the relationship between the human spirit and the sky. This book explores ideas, beliefs and practices which meet at the boundary of psychology and cosmology, the universe and human imagination. This book addresses this special relationship from a variety of challenging and inspirin... View more info

NOT YET PUBLISHED Due November 2019 Please consider ordering in advance Enchantment is a profound human experience. When we encounter wonder, awe or amazement, that is enchantment. Enchantment can reveal profound truths, lead to deep values and become central to a life well-lived.

ISBN: 1584200936

Every spiritual practice, every exercise of consciousness, all meditation -- indeed, every moment of true awareness -- we do with the 'gentle will', even if we are unaware of it initially and cannot fully activate it yet. Through practice, however, the gentle will begins to shine, and we gradually gain the ability to access it in our ordinary, daily activities, allowing our lives to become infinitely richer, meaningful and creative. The gentle will is relaxed, receptive, expressive, creative, soft, light and playful. It is not rigid or cramped. We use the gentle will in artistic activities suc... View more info

Secret History of Consciousness

Seller ID: 14144

ISBN: 1584200111

NOW AVAILABLE For the last four centuries, science has tried to account for everything in terms of atoms and molecules and the physical laws they adhere to. Recently, this effort was extended to try to include the inner world of human beings. Gary Lachman argues that this view of consciousness is misguided and unfounded. He points to another approach to the study and exploration of consciousness that erupted into public awareness in the late 1800s. In this “secret history of consciousness,” consciousness is seen not as a result of neurons and molecules, but as responsible for... View more info

ISBN: 0863153577

illustrations Consciousness is a cutting-edge topic in scientific circles, its precise nature holding huge implications for the future of science itself. With so many recent advances in brain studies, questions of mind and consciousness have become of critical importance for scientists and theorists alike. Are we 'nothing but a pack of neurons' that will in due course reveal their secrets in the laboratory? Or do our conscious mind and self-awareness stem from some dimension beyond material investigation? How, too, are we to account for 'parapsychological' phenomena in which consciousnes...

Many individuals with autism are highly intelligent and gifted, but some are effectively imprisoned in their bodies and unable to communicate verbally. However, developments in technology have enabled autistic people to transmit their thoughts directly. In this true account, three autistic people, two of them brothers, speak via the method of 'facilitated communication', with the aid of a computer keypad. What is conveyed are not just everyday thoughts and experiences, but surprising and sometimes shattering spiritual and metaphysical perceptions. The conversations reveal remarkable clairvoyan...

ISBN: 1584209623

“If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts.” (Psalm 95:7–8) There is a correlation between waking experiences in a sleep state and inner experiences in a waking state. Both involve awakened consciousness. The hundred-plus songs and thirteen dreams in this volume are halting attempts to put into words inner events that are experienced in a waking consciousness. Inner experiences are filtered into images, ideas, and feelings, which are then translated into words. This derivative process condenses activity into words. The polar opposite process must happen for ... View more info

Conversations with Saul Bellow on Esoteric-Spiritual Matters: A Publisher's Recollections

Publisher: SteinerBooks:

Seller ID: 15135

ISBN: 1621482073

In 1975, Saul Bellow published his eighth novel, Humboldt's Gift, in which the main protagonist is occupied with, among other things, the teachings of Rudolf Steiner. Although the novel was an immediate success and won a Pulitzer Prize, leading to Bellow's Nobel Prize for Literature in 1976, the unapologetic presence of Rudolf Steiner's Anthroposophy in a work of such obvious cultural importance was, and remains, puzzling for many commentators. A sentence from one contemporary review of the novel is typical: I am not clear whether Charlies devotion to Steiner's Anthroposophy is one of Mr. Bell... View more info

ISBN: 0880104961

Illustrations What is the difference between soul and spiritual consciousness? Or the process of individuation and the development of individuality? What are Jung's and Steiner's views on the Grail, dreams, life after death, alchemy, and sexuality? The different approaches of C.G. Jung, the explorer of soul, and Rudolf Steiner, the explorer of spirit, have never been fully brought together. How, putting these together, can a more holistic understanding of the human being be reached? Gerhard Wehr, who is both an Anthroposophist and a biographer of Jung, answers these questions and explore... View more info
