LIVING THE GOOD LIFE How to Live Sanely and Simply in a Troubled World. Introduction by Paul Goodman (Used)
by Nearing, Helen & Scott
Book ID: 11657, 11657
NY: Schocken 1970 (1954), second printing, cloth-backed boards, 213pp, 21 B&W photographs, a few of which are full-page, including portrait frontispiece, good inexpensive copy. A classic narrative by these realized arcadian-utopian visionaries. After his long and noble life Scott, still working everyday at his farm and in good health starved himself when he turned 100 because he was loosing his sight, Helen made it to 91. She grew up in a large Theosophist household and had been with Krishnamurti when he had his "enlightenment" experience under the pepper tree. She was an accomplished musician, and a vegetarian/vegan like her more famous anarchist economist husband. Scott was an anti-war activist during WWI and prodigious author-scholar. Together they almost single-handedly birthed the back-to-the-land movement of the early 1960's. Their lives are a life-long inspiration to me and I have read this book more than a few times. They were also book collectors and had a fantastic home library, and their writings are sprinkled with stories of interesting reading experiences.

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press
Limited to 800 copies
The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company
After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
