The Magical and Ritual Use of Aphrodisiacs
The Magical and Ritual Use of Aphrodisiacs
Paperback      ISBN: 0892814020

Aphrodisiacs--the foods of love that increase sexual desire and potency--fall into two classifications: biochemical, which have a direct effect on sexual activity, and the more important group whose effects are psychophysiological in nature. Richard Alan Miller provides comprehensive and detailed information on using both kinds of aphrodisiacs.

- Emphasizing the powerful role of the mind on the biochemistry of sexuality, Miller shows how intention and motivation can be focused to greatly augment the physical effects of these substances.

- To stimulate the imagination and enhance both the physical and psychological effects of aphrodisiacs, the author suggests specific contemporary rituals drawn from sources as diverse as Tantric yoga and Western magic.

- In previous editions, this and the author's other titles have sold more than 50,000 copies.
Iamblichus' Life of Pythagoras
Iamblichus' Life of Pythagoras
Paperback      ISBN: 0892811528

Authentic memoirs of the life of Pythagoras--the father of philosophy and the inventor of geometry--hold the great interest for every lover of wisdom. Iamblichus' biography is universally acknowledged as deriving from sources of the highest antiquity. Its classic translation by Thomas Taylor was first printed in 1818 and is once again brought to light in this edition.

During Iamblichus' life, the depth and sublimity of his writing and discourse attracted a multitude of associates and disciples from all parts of the world. The Emperor Julian wrote of him, that he was posterior indeed in time, but not in genius, to Plato, and all the Platonists who succeeded him honored him with the epithet of divine.

Iamblichus' account of the life of Pythagoras begins with the great philosopher's birth on the island of Samos, his youth, and his wide renown in Greece. It briefly covers his early travels and his studies with the philosophers Anaximander and Thales, his twenty-two years of instruction in the temples of Egypt, and his initiation into the Egyptian and Babylonian mysteries. The later life and work of Pythagoras are richly elaborated, with humorous and profound anecdotes illustrating his philosophy and providing a unique view of community life under his tutelage in Crotona.

Included are excerpts from his teachings on harmonic science, dietetic medicine, friendship, temperance, politics, parenthood, the soul's former lives and many other topics. The book also contains substantial sections on the Fragments of the Ethical Writings (the work of very early Pythagoreans) and the Pythagoric Sentences.

Chop Wood, Carry Water
A Guide to Finding Spiritual Fulfillment in Everyday Life
Paperback      ISBN: 0874772095

More than a thousand years ago a Chinese Zen Master wrote:

Magical Power, Marvelous Action

Chopping Wood, Carrying Water...

The message is as true today as it was then: the greatest lessons and the profoundest heights of the spiritual path can be found in our everyday life. It is the greatest challenge for people living in contemporary society to find the spiritual aspects of working in an office, store, or factory; balancing a checkbook; raising a family; or making a relationship work. How can we make all these daily activities a part of the path? How can we apply the insights of great spiritual traditions, and our own experience, to the way we live and develop?

This book is a guide - a handbook filled with information, advice, hints, stories, inspiration, encouragement, connections, warning, and cautions, for the inner journey as we live throughout our lives.

Chop Wood, Carry Water contains much ancient wisdom, but the emphasis is on contemporary perceptions. Many of our guides have been known to humanity for millennia: they are the world's great spiritual teachers- Christ, the Buddha, Loa Tse, Confucius. Others are contemporary teacher and healers, widely recognized and respected. All offer ways to integrate the events, our focus on relationships and family, our struggle with technology, money, politics and more- into the quest for spiritual fulfillment.
