Understanding Masculine Psychology
Paperback      ISBN: 0060963964

"Entertaining, informative, thought-provoking, mysterious, poetic. Men who read it will surely learn much about themselves, and women--particularly those who are unfortunately misled into thinking of men as "the enemy"--will find it a real eye-opener."--Ruth Tiffany Barnhouse, M.D., Th.M., Harvard University

Robert A. Johnson's classic work exploring the differences between man and woman, female and male--newly reissued.

What does it really mean to be a man? What are some of the landmarks along the road to mature masculinity? And what of the feminine components of a man's personality?

Women do not really know as much about men as they think they do. They have developed, over the centuries, considerable expertise in the technique of adapting to men, but that is not the same as truly understanding them. Women often labor under the delusion that life is really pretty easy for men, at least when compared to their own lot, and they have no idea what a complicated struggle is really involved in the transition from male childhood to real manhood.

As timely today as when it was first published, He provides a fascinating look into male identity and how female dynamics influence men.

2nd Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 0807029092
An update of the feminist classic that "did nothing less than alter the course of gender psychology" (Psychology Today)

In the years since its original publication, this best-selling classic became famous for its groundbreaking demonstration of how sexual stereotypes restrict our psychological development. Toward a New Psychology of Women revolutionized the concepts of strength and weakness, dependency and autonomy, emotion, success, and power, selling more than 200,000 copies and changing the lives of women across the globe.

In this updated second edition, Dr. Jean Baker Miller reflects on where women are today, addressing both the enormous progress in some areas and the challenges still to be met. Celebrating the questions that have been raised and the actions women have taken, as well as looking toward future change, Miller affirms the strength and diversity of womanhood.

New Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis
New Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis
Paperback      ISBN: 039300743x

Freud approved the overall editorial plan, specific renderings of key words and phrases, and the addition of valuable notes, from bibliographical and explanatory. Many of the translations were done by Strachey himself; the rest were prepared under his supervision. The result was to place the Standard Edition in a position of unquestioned supremacy over all other existing versions. Newly designed in a uniform format, each new paperback in the Standard Edition opens with a biographical essay on Freud's life and work --along with a note on the individual volume--by Peter Gay, Sterling Professor of History at Yale.

Many Lives, Many Masters: The True Story of a Prominent Psychiatrist, His Young Patient, and the Past-Life Therapy That Changed Both Their Lives
Many Lives, Many Masters
The True Story of a Prominent Psychiatrist, His Young Patient, and the Past-Life Therapy That Changed Both Their Lives
Paperback      ISBN: 0671657860

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.

Diamond Heart: The Freedom to Be
Diamond Heart
The Freedom to Be
Paperback      ISBN: 0936713046
Founder and spiritual teacher A. H. Almaas continues his study of the Diamond Approach to uncovering the many facets of our human potential

We live in a world of mystery, wonder, and beauty. But most of us seldom participate in this real world, being focused rather on the parts that are mostly strife, suffering, or meaninglessness. The situation is basically due to our not realizing and living our full human potential. This potential can be actualized by the realization and development of human essence. The human essence is the part of us that is innate and real, and which can participate in the real world.

Comprised of transcriptions of A. H. Almaas' talks to inner-work groups in Colorado and California, The Freedom to Be is the second installment in a five-volume series on the Diamond Approach.
