Description

This important and highly relevant book is intended to serve as a catalyst for nothing less than the transformation of global society. Author Keith Harris (a European living in Scandinavia) locates the primary difficulties in Western society today in the economic domain, (using Rudolf Steiner's threefold social model with its three domains: cultural, political and economic). Harris argues that it is in this sphere that initiative will have to be taken if Western and global society is to be transformed. What is needed is for social idealists and altruists to enter commercial life and create cooperative-like, fair-trading economic enterprises and for widespread consumer organizations to spring up among ordinary people in support of such initiatives.

"The book is divided into three parts. The first part looks at certain worrying trends in Western society. The second considers what we can do, both individually and through working together with others to guide society in a radically different direction -- toward social and economic transparency, toward cooperation, toward realizing the organic and fair-trading ideals, while holding back those forces attempting to condition Western populations to surveillance and control. The third part deals with what might happen to society if we fail to bring the 'deep-democratic' ideal into economic life." (Preface, Cooperation, by Keith Harris)

It is the author's hope that the ideas in this book will touch the hearts of readers and become transformed into ideals capable of catalyzing the will to alter our social patterns .

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 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...
