Description

Mental Therapeutics is a science, not a superstition, a theology or a religion. The mind is unknowable, but its activities are known and may be intelligently applied. In his thesis on healing, Dumont explains his thoughts on this highly complex subject. His lessons explore the corporal mind, cells of the body, the sympathetic nervous system, the mental cause of disease, and much more.

Followers of the New Thought movement of the early 20th century vehemently believed in the concept of "mind over matter," none moreso than William Walker Atkinson. In 1918, writing under the name Theron Q. Dumont, Atkinson argued that the nerves and ganglia of the solar plexus form a separate, "instinctive mind" that energizes and regulates the body's organs and emotions. Mixing Eastern ideas with Western pragmatism, Atkinson provides a series of breathing and mental exercises that link the "thinking mind" with the "abdominal brain" to help both control emotions and improve physical wellbeing. With an emphasis on practice over theory, this slim, absorbing work seems right at home in an era of holistic and alternative medicines. American writer WILLIAM WALKER ATKINSON (1862-1932) was editor of the popular magazine New Thought from 1901 to 1905, and editor of the journal Advanced Thought from 1916 to 1919. He authored dozens of New Thought books under a variety of pseudonyms, including Yogi Ramacharaka, Theodore Sheldon and Theron Q. Dumont. His other works include Character Reading and The Power of Concentration.

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...

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 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.
