TWILIGHT GODDESS: Spiritual Feminism and Feminine Spirituality (Used)
by Cleary, Thomas & Sartaz A
Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: 10866, 10866
Shambhala 2000, hardcover & dj, 275pp, a few plates. Highly recommended. Cleary is one of the world’s most respected translators. Together with Aziz, who is a Pakistan born professor of Asian literature, they have written one of the most interesting books on goddess and tantric worship of recent times. Chapters on both the history, and the practice (past and present) of goddess worship in the east, with much commentary contrasting it with the west. I read it through the first time I picked it up, fascinating. Their writing style is an admirable and seldom encountered blend of scholarly investigation along with a fast-paced narrative retelling of stories and the deeds of historical characters. There is also a large chapter on the precise methods of prolonging orgasm in various secret cults, and the relation of that with longevity in the Taoist tradition, exposing a number of well respected but erroneous beliefs held by most scholars. This volume serves as corrective to the relentless flood of texts by new age ignoramuses.

Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."

Deconstructing Gurdjieff: Biography of a Spiritual Magician
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company
In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of "the greatest man in the world," yet few knew who he was talking about. Enigmatic, misunderstood, declared a charlatan, and recently dubbed "the Rasputin who inspired Mary Poppins," Gurdjieff's life has become a legend. But who really was George Ivanovich Gurdjieff?
Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
