Description

Does a city have a "soul"?

How does the individual psyche -- as long-time resident, recent arrival, or visitor -- experience different cities?

Each city embodies distinctive psychological qualities --in its geography and architecture, its bright lights and shadowy realms, in the deep patterns that recur throughout its history, in its global connections, and in the singular lives of its past and current inhabitants. But although each is unique, all must face the archetypal, dialectical nature of the cosmopolitan itself, as well as the particular tensions, terrors, and promises common to modern urban life world-wide.

The contributors to Psyche & the City are all Jungian analysts and cultural thinkers, working with a notion of "soul" that comprehends both spirit and matter, bridging dualistic conceptions while recognizing the inherent value of each individual perspective. Writing specially for this volume, the authors freely employ personal anecdote and reverie, factual background, biography, imaginal amplification, and creative speculation to evoke the souls of their own home cities.

This book is a hymn to the soul intended not only for readers familiar with Jungian ideas, but for anyone who cares about the state of their own soul, about their fellow citizens, and about the soul of the city itself.

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.

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...
