Description

This masterwork was inspired by Paul Brunton’s years spent with wise sages in Asia, who recognized that he had a significant role to play in the transmission of Hindu Vedanta and Buddhism to the West. The Wisdom of the Overself (and its companion volume The Hidden Teaching Beyond Yoga) is a profound re-creation of the teachings of those two great traditions for the contemporary spiritual seeker. In print since the 1940s, it remains one of the most comprehensive, clear, yet practical guides on the path to enlightenment. Brunton’s teaching awakens us to our divine roots and the intelligence that underlies our world of experience.

Brunton unfolds a grand vision for human development through a graded exploration of consciousness as the source of all experience; the working of karma and destiny, free will and grace; the nature of individuality and the witness consciousness; the lessons and mystic potentials of dream and deep sleep; the passage through death to the next life; the nature and lessons of evil and suffering; and, especially, the wonder that is the Overself and the Mind of the World. He also provides seven ultra-mystic exercises and describes the specific development that each brings. These include a healing meditation on the sun for self and others, a meditation on the timeless self, and practices utilizing past and future as well as dream and sleep. These techniques lead to the deepest spiritual realizations, to the true “Wisdom of the Overself.”

This new edition has been updated to incorporate Brunton’s final revisions and includes an introduction by the Paul Brunton Philosophic Foundation.

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.

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...

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 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...
