Description

Simple yet powerful, URGENT WHISPERS: Care of the Dying by Jerral Sapienza is an essential guide to getting focused in caregiving. Designed for novice and experienced caregivers alike, it empowers one to feel supported, informed and immediately useful in the process of helping out at the end of life. Can be used as a personal guide and mentor, or in group training settings to help inspire confidence and stimulate discussion while opening to learn. With index, exercises and reflections, a poetic, prayerful, information-packed little guide: URGENT WHISPERS is truly a "Map and Compass for the Soul."

The heart of the book is layed out as a two-page spread, the left side with exercises, questions, list fill-ins and reflection opportunity by and for the caregiver about the process. The right side of the page starts with a brief and often incisive "whisper" at the top of the page, representing a quiet yet important subtle message about the loved one's needs which the caregiver may or may not have sensed in the course of the process, followed by a discussion of how it may be most relevant to caregiver, loved one and the overall process.

For those apprehensive about the subject or fearful about getting involved, URGENT WHISPERS delicately draws them in, offering an excellent action guide to richer living. The chronological arrangement of the "whispers" moves the reader gradually through a growth and examination process, covering roles and attitudes towards usefulness, priorities, love and family, friendship, spiritual values, accomplishments, celebrations and a whole host of other topics, all while learning more about Self and Others. With exercises and index, it informs, inspires and documents a reader's journey all along the way.

Sapienza is a fascinating blend of artist and keen social scientist who writes from personal experience as long-time hospice volunteer and death researcher. Rich and acessible, this jewel of a resource guide is a caregiver's delight. Available as paperback or spiral coil edition, there's a reason why URGENT WHISPERS is popping up all across the country in book discussion groups, community reading programs, church fellowships and other places which typically have little to do with hospice or caregiving. This is a remarkable little book.

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 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...

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.
