Description

A master at conducting "theme meetings," Bennett could draw out the most profound lessons from the most faltering of contributions. He helped people to see for themselves the practical core of the spiritual path and avoid the twin evils of doubt and philosophizing.

The Five talks in this book are taken from meetings recorded at Sherborne House between 1972 and 1975. At present, we are able to publish only this small selection from the hundreds of tapes. More are forthcoming.

This volume reprints the introductory essay "The Thematic Technique", along with the four volumes of the Sherborne Theme Talk Series, "First Liberation", "Noticing", "Food" and "Material Objects".

"The Technique of Theme consists in this: in persistently and with great determination occupying one's mind with a specific clear notion so that one can penetrate into it in depth. The main purpose is to go through the verbal and conceptual level of understanding to a direct perception of the real world to which it belongs. "This is what we have set ourselves to undertake [at Sherborne House]. It is not at all easy for people to understand that the way of life that is dominant in the world leads to nothing at all. The whole of it is now illusion. This is impossible, not merely difficult but impossible, for people to grasp until they have had experience of looking at it from another world and seeing it how it is." --from Chapter 1

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...

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.
