Description

In Offering from the Conscious Body, Janet Adler, the presiding voice in the field of Authentic Movement, presents both the theory and the practice of this unique body-based discipline that concerns psychological healing, artistic impulse, and experience of the numinous. This Western awareness practice invites the experience of a person's evolving relationship with oneself, another, the collective, and the divine through compassionate witnessing of movement becoming conscious. With vivid examples taken from her own practice and teaching, Adler leads the reader through the multiple layers within the discipline -- moving and witnessing in dyads and then groups, in the presence of a witnessing teacher -- to develop a comprehensive and experiental understanding of this innovative way of work. Designed for professionals and laypersons interested in psychology, bodywork, creative exploration, mystical practice, or personal transformation, the discipline of Authentic Movement is at the cutting edge of merging Western healing practices.

JANET ADLER, with a Ph.D. in mystical studies, teaches the discipline of Authentic Movement internationally and was the founder and director of The Mary Starks Whitehouse Institute, the first school devoted to the study and practice of Authentic Movement. She is the author of Arching Backward and of two films: Looking for Me, documenting her work with autistic children, and Still Looking, reflecting her work in the discipline of Authentic Movement. She lives in northern California, where she also works as a hospice chaplain.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
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...

The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies 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 Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) 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...
