This important survey of alchemical symbols and doctrines sets forth the mysterious worldview and teachings of the practitioners of the royal art. One of the leading exponents of the Hermetic tradition, Julius Evola demonstrates the singularity of subject matter that lies behind the words of all adepts in all ages, showing how alchemy--often misunderstood as primitive chemistry or a mere template for the Jungian process of individuation--is nothing less than a universal secret science of human and natural transformation.
First published in 1931 in Italian. This is the first English translation.
Hurley and Dobson explore how the wisdom of the Enneagram allows you to bring out the best in yourself and others. Delving deeper than other systems of personality exploration, the Enneagram system of nine distinctive patterns of unconscious motivation reveals the primary sources of our behavior and the reasons we live as we do.Through detailed descriptions and discerning self-inventory questions, Hurley and Dobson make discovering your personality type fun and easy. They provide simple, proven methods for neutralizing negative attitudes about self and others and releasing untapped potential. Armed with the Enneagram's insights, readers learn to transform weaknesses into strengths, break free of crippling patterns, choose new ways of relating to others, and enjoy balance and harmony. For example:
- The Achiever can move from dissatisfied perfectionism to effective leadership and become a Pathfinder.
- The Observer can move from fear of commitment to curiosity and courage and become an Explorer.
- The Helper can move from over-involvement in the lives of others to mutual relationships and become a Partner.
Why Mary Summer Rain wrote and published Soul Sounds
"I wanted to have a personal record to review when I became very old and too forgetful of mind to remember. . .I've been advised by reasons spoken and unspoken, to have this very private diary published. This idea was not sanctioned by me until the last possible moment, because I'd thought no one else was going to be reading my words, and I'd written as honestly and outspokenly as I could throughout the journal pages. I'd recorded my personal thoughts, memories, and even confessions. In essence, this journal does indeed turn me inside out, with respect to revealing my true thoughts and inner self to the public. But, as always, I abide by how I am guided; whether I will end up being chastised, ridiculed, embarrassed, or exposed because of the publication of this book is not important anymore."
This definitive volume is the first modern translation of Vatsyayana's Kama Sutra to include two essential commentaries: the Jayamangala of Yashodhara and the modern Hindi commentary by Devadatta Shastri. Alain Danilou spent four years comparing versions of the Kama Sutra in Sanskrit, Hindi, Bengali, and English, drawing on his intimate experience of India, to preserve the full explicitness of the original. I wanted to demystify India, he writes, to show that a period of great civilization, of high culture, is forcibly a period of great liberty.
The Pentagram, Star of David, Crucifix, rabbit's foot, or four-leaf clover...they all provide feelings of comfort and protection, intended to attract good while dispelling evil. Found throughout history and in nearly every culture and religion, amulets and talismans can be made and used by anyone.
Spanning the world through the diverse cultures of Sumeria, Babylonia, Greece, Italy, India, Western Europe, and North America, this book presents the history and uses of amulets and talismans.

The first volume in a series of books written by Mary Summer Rain about her experiences with an extraordinary Native American shaman called "No-Eyes," Spirit Song has become one of the best-selling and most important books in the literature and philosophy of what has been called the "new-age."
Mary Summer Rain was the last student of the blind-from-birth Chippewa visionary, and spent many days in the remote cabin in the mountains with the woman who would become her beloved friend and teach her the many lessons of the spirit and of the Earth Mother. But it is the unique interaction between the two that provides the emotional power behind the profound teachings of the old woman. The wonderfully lyrical descriptions of the vivid seasonal beauty of Colorado serve as a backdrop for this unfolding narrative.
The sixth book of Mary Summer Rain's extraordinary "No-Eyes" series, answers questions culled from thousands of letters from her readers. Daybreak delves into the implications of No-Eyes' teachings, into realms of prophecy, Native American history, metaphysics, and just plain common sense. Expanding upon the Earthways data base, there is even an extensive dream dictionary.
Finally, Daybreak includes The Phoenix Files which is a comprehensive listing of nuclear facilities, military installations, toxic waste dumps, oil refineries, seismic risk zones, geothermal regions, natural disaster hazard zones, as well as a suggested pole shift realignment configuration.
This novel portrays the transformative encounter of the modern, scientific and rational mentality with the suprarational, spiritual intelligence that guides us on the Path of the Mysteries. Through dramatic dialogue and interplay between master and student, we are initiated into the realm of the spirit.
From author and psychotherapist Dr. Brian Weiss comes the classic bestseller on the true case of the past-life therapy that changed the lives of both the prominent psychiatrist and young patient involved--now featuring a new afterword by the author.As a traditional psychotherapist, Dr. Brian Weiss was astonished and skeptical when one of his patients began recalling past-life traumas that seemed to hold the key to her recurring nightmares and anxiety attacks. His skepticism was eroded, however, when she began to channel messages from the "space between lives," which contained remarkable revelations about Dr. Weiss' family and his dead son. Using past-life therapy, he was able to cure the patient and embark on a new, more meaningful phase of his own career. With more than one million copies in print, Many Lives, Many Masters is one of the breakthrough texts in alternative psychotherapy and remains as provocative and timeless as it was when first published.
