For almost 50 years, Walter Carrington has walked into the teaching room at 18 Lansdowne Road in London, sat down in a chair, picked up one of F.M. Alexander's books and begun to read aloud. The point at which he stops reading and begins sharing his thoughts, observations and experiences of the Alexander Technique with the assembled audience is the point at which this book begins.
The 29 talks in The Act of Living range widely in subject, from breathing and the balance of the head on the neck to the pain of sciatica and the effect of gravity on our lives. Whether he is speaking about the bones of the pelvis, or the man who wants to change without changing, Walter Carrington gives the reader an inside look at this educational technique for changing habitual behavior.
The Act of Living serves as a gentle reminder for teachers of some of the thoughts worth considering in a lesson; it helps students quicken their understanding of the fundamental principles of the Alexander Technique. The book is invaluable for anyone interested in directing his or her energies towards a freer, more spontaneous exploration of the world in which we live. It will change how you see, think and feel about yourself.

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 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
