A Psychonaut's Guide to the Invisible Landscape: The Topography of the Psychedelic Experience
A Psychonaut's Guide to the Invisible Landscape
The Topography of the Psychedelic Experience
Paperback      ISBN: 1594770905

A bold cartography of the inner landscape visible only to those experiencing altered states

- Presents the psychedelic experience as an objective landscape that embodies the Other, rather than a subjective state of mind

- Provides corroboration of phenomena encountered by those who venture into this domain

Journeying into the invisible world revealed by his use of the dissociative psychedelic DXM (dextromethorphan), Dan Carpenter found that what he experienced was not simply subjective sensations and psychological states but an objective world of familiar, if inordinately odd, landmarks and characters. The running diary he kept of these voyages recounts impressions of a landscape charted by other travelers into this Inner Space and includes descriptions of many of the same phenomena recorded by such mind travelers as Terence and Dennis McKenna, Alexander and Ann Shulgin, and others who have experienced the hive mind--the pool of all consciousness. Into this territory where expression is like chaos theory, where oddly symmetrical order manifests out of the seemingly anarchic swirl of images and events, the author ventures with the mind-set of a naturalist, accepting whatever might be rather than what he hopes he might find. What emerges is not a location crafted by subjective experience, but a landscape that embodies the Other and that represents a conscious state in which the barriers between the self and the not-self dissolve.

Here is a groundclearing work with the first comprehensive bibliography of the field in English. As the subtitle indicates, the book first surveys past research and then plots out a recommended course for the discipline.

The implications of the researches of Freud, Jung, and the post-Freudians for biblical studies are carefully explored, along with studies of biblical scholars who have employed psychological approaches. Rollins seeks to establish an agenda for psychological criticism as a discipline with biblical studies. Major issues and concerns are addressed and explained in a perceptive and understandable manner.

Drawing from a highly convincing body of evidence, observations from pioneers in the field of human consciousness, and a vast pool of powerful stories, the book explores the effects of translucence on many aspects of contemporary western life, including personal relationships, sex, parenting, education, psychotherapy, medicine, aging, business, and global politics.

Abraham: The Man and the Symbol
Abraham
The Man and the Symbol
Paperback      ISBN: 0933029942

Abraham the man was God's chosen one--chosen to impart the belief in one God to a pagan society and to bring forth a new nation in the Promised Land. Abraham the symbol shows that we all have a mission if we will heed the call from the voice of Self. The Israeli authors' application of Jungian thought adds to a deeper understanding of the father of Israel and Judaism.

Abraham's relevance today extends far beyond the Jewish, Christian, and Moslem people and religious historians. His journey symbolically shows all people the personal and collective meaning in the story of every life.

Like Abraham, individuals interested in spiritual growth must connect their human condition to something higher. Abraham, as interpreted through the Jungian viewpoint, provides guidance in the struggle for meaning, answering God's call, the courage to sacrifice, and communicating with God.
Affect Theory, Shame, and Christian Formation
Affect Theory, Shame, and Christian Formation
Hardcover      ISBN: 3319425919

This book addresses the eclipse of shame in Christian theology by showing how shame emerges in Christian texts and practice in ways that can be neither assimilated into a discourses of guilt nor dissociated from embodiment. Stephanie N. Arel argues that the traditional focus on guilt obscures shame by perpetuating the image of the lonely sinner in guilt. Drawing on recent studies in affect and attachment theories to frame the theological analysis, the text examines the theological anthropological writings of Augustine and Reinhold Niebuhr, the interpretation of empathy by Edith Stein, and moments of touch in Christian praxis. Bringing the affective dynamics of shame to the forefront enables theologians and religious leaders to identify where shame emerges in language and human behavior. The text expands work in trauma theory, providing a multi-layered theological lens for engaging shame and accompanying suffering.
