Hidden Messages in Water
is an eye-opening theory showing how water
is deeply connected to people's individual and collective consciousness.
Dr. Masaru Emoto describes the ability of water to absorb, hold,
and even retransmit human feelings and emotions.He found that
water from clear springs and water exposed to loving words shows
brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns, while polluted
water and water exposed to negative thoughts forms incomplete,
asymmetrical patterns with dull colors. Emoto believes that since
people are 70 percent water, and the Earth is 70 percent water,
we can heal our planet and ourselves by consciously expressing
love and goodwill... .

Golding (author of Lord of the Flies) has taken the age-old
mystery of the Neanderthals a step further. He has entered the mind
and soul and nascent "culture" of a species of proto-humans, at
a time and place of first contact with the true humans--those we
would likely call today, the Cro-Magnon. In the balance, we are
left to wonder more deeply than ever before, what is it to be "truly
Tree Where Man Was Born--Peter Matthiessen
Africa in the sixties is the scene of this early Matthiessen journey.
How stark and poignant are the beauty of the land and people in
the face of an eroding way of life: a process familiar now to every
continent on earth. Of particular interest here is the archeological
significance of East Africa in the search for human origins--and
the author's portrayal of the living remnants of the most ancient
races of humankind.
Heart's Code: Tapping the Wisdom and Power of Our Heart Energy--Paul
A book which can help you reorient your life energy to the pulse
of your heart, when it might be on a disaster course following the
chaotic demands of a restless and insecure brain. Pearsall has wide
experience with heart transplant patients, and shares many case
histories demonstrating the transfer of various kinds of memories
along with the transplanted heart. He surveys current research in
the field of cardio-energetics and helps us attune to a new self-definition
that widens our boundaries and offers a way out of our constrictive
habits of head and heart.
Eating--Gabriel Cousens, M.D.
...Cousens has that rare ability to hold a radical view--Eat Live
Foods for Better Health!--with humor and compassion for those he
aims to convince. This book contains a wealth of research supporting
his program, and an open minded reader cannot ignore the power of
the author's personal experience with the diet he recommends. You
may not change your eating habits tomorrow--but you will certainly
think about them, during and after reading this book. Your eating,
for better or worse, will become conscious. The rest is up to you!
...This student of Reich (himself a ground-breaking student of Freud)
outlines with a comprehensive and experienced view, the importance
of body-consciousness. The way we hold ourselves, the way we move,
our locked-in fears and habitual armoring: all are subject to healing
change through awareness, movement, energetic release.
Solitaire: A Season in the Wilderness--Edward Abbey
...Literary man turned wild man, via a stint as park ranger in Utah
canyonlands desert. Pithy natural description, impassioned diatribe
against civilization and comic caricature of 60's tourists, heart-to-heart
confessional of man on earthÖcowboy stories and survival scrapes,
rafting and rock-scrambling and humble wandering/wondering under
the bleak blissful starry sky.

...Crucial insight into the mind-body connection for resolving back
pain and associated dysfunction. Teaches awareness of muscle tension,
with exercises to increase flexibility and natural relaxation.
...Every trail on the island, it seems, is covered here: a bit overwhelming

Secrets: The Alchemy of Ecstasy--Nik Douglas and Penny Slinger
All is bared in this popularization of the sacred texts and lore
of the East. The core teachings are Taoist and Tantric, with liberal
references to the Kama Sutra and other texts. Lavishly illustrated,
this compendium of higher sexual practice has everything you're
missing if you're only messing with mainstream sex.
the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples--Harville Hendrix
This book is one of the best in its ever-popular field. Hendrix
has been through it all and presents here a no-nonsense approach
that works. We are encouraged to see, through a series of exercises,
how our partners reflect the positive and negative traits of our
own parents, and of ourselves. The exercises also lead us into constructive
ways of communicating and caring for each other in the ways that
of Desire: Women, Passion, and Romantic Obsession--Rosemary
The Governor General's Award winner spins a fascinating and original
tale--part personal, part philosophical, part fiction, part nonfiction--exploring
both the tragic obsession and the redeeming depth of woman's dance
with sex and romance.
of the Heart: Love, Sex, and Intimacy in Changing Times--John
...In researching a book on this bottomless subject, Welwood assembled
a stellar collection of writings to share. Scott Peck, Alan Watts,
D. H. Lawrence, Chogyam Trungpa, Robert Bly, Wendell Berry, R. M.
Rilke--along with women writers who are less "household names" but,
of course, carry half the show.
Love--Alain de Botton
...a philosophical, analytical, ironical (of course) and arch treatment
of love, through one manís journey there and back. Chapter titles
("Romantic Fatalism," "The Subtext of Seduction,"
"The Fear of Happiness,") suggest the themes treated literarily
yet in character.
Each Other--Hal Stone and Sidra Winkelman
..."The fairy tale version of romantic love teaches that once
one finds the right mate, there is a marriage and then the two live
happily ever after. Somehow the relationship magically brings out
the King or Queen in each of us; therefore, our task in life is
to find the correct mate so that we can be truly ourselves. In contrast
to this, many of us now have a real fear that we will lose ourselves
if we "give in" to a relationship and make the adjustments
that are necessary in order for it to work, that the changes demanded
of us by relationship are a weakening or a
lessening of who we are."
This is a book that comes at the right time: and in (or out of)
relationship, any time is the right time. Especially helpful is
the advice on taking care of one's [inner] "vulnerable child":
1. Recognize its presence
2. Develop an awareness of its personality, needs and reactions
3. Separate far enough in trigger situations to evaluate
4. Speak up for it in an objective, relaxed fashion
Ourselves: the Voice Dialogue Manual, by the same
authors, provides hands-on tools for healing.
Spirituality and Sex--Osho
..."While making love to a woman, you are really making love
to existence itself. The woman is just a door, the man is just a
door. The other is just a door for the whole; but you are in such
a hurry you never feel it. If you remain in communion, in deep embrace
for hours together, you will forget the other and the other will
just become an extension of the whole.
"in human life the sex act is the only act in which you come
to feel a nonduality, in which you come to feel a deep oneness,
in which the past disappears and the future disappears and only
the present momentóthe only real moment--remains.
"Sex is just the beginning, not the end. But if you miss the
beginning, you will miss the end also."
Future of Love--Daphne Rose Kingma
...This book is deceptively simple and repetitive: yet powerful
in the breadth and depth of its message: so many forms are possible,
they are all okay when we undertake to pursue our relationships
with our focus instead on the growing spirit, the spirit of love.
Inner Lover: Using passion as a way to self-empowerment--Valerie
...Takes a long look at some lesser-known aspects of relationship:
loving yourself first; embracing loveís suffering for the growth
it brings; nurturing an unattainable relationship through fantasy
rather than through destructive sex; and realizing that our attractions
often mirror our own desires, and embody the lessons we need to
learn in our lives. "Things donít get better; they get deeper."
...complete exploration of causes and characteristics of emotional
debt and toxic nostalgia, with cogent principles and truths of natural
therapeutic healing. A cornucopia of useful one-and-two-liners:
"How you see your past is how you feel about yourself."
"If you accept yourself as you are and pay attention to the
road, you will get where you want to go." "Just believe
you are good. Everything else will follow." "You are the
answer. Spend your life defining the question."
Children: The Secrets of Dysfunctional Families--John
Friel and Linda Friel
...Are we all in this leaky boat? It appears so. These therapists
tell it like it is: truthful, readable, straight talk. What do you
use to cover your past and present hurts?
the Child Within--Charles L. Whitfield
...expert in Inner Child work covers field with broad and deep strokes,

to Yes--Fisher and Ury
...the definitive handbook on negotiation without giving in. You
can't always get what you want, but if you try sometime, you get
what you need...
Bridges of Madison County--Robert James Waller
...a perfect novel of an affair, with completeness and simplicity,
showing the ultimate tragedy of our dual-hearted dilemma. Great
on video too, with Meryl Streep and (gasp) a well-aged Clint Eastwood.
Voices: A Survey of Visionary Narratives--Joan Halifax
Fascinating collection of first-hand accounts and interviews with
aboriginal shamans from around the world. Most depend on psychoactive
aids as they enter dream states and trances to heal their people.
Most accounts also include stories of the shaman's own training
and initiation, as well as the mythological context of their culture.
The Definitive Guide to the Chakras and Kundalini--Shyam Sundar
"Definitive" is right. This exhaustive and scholarly work is a compendium
of ancient teachings viewed in the light of the western scientific
search for the chakras in the physical body. It combines a common-sense
and practical approach to spiritual discipline with a deep grasp
of the principles involved. For the serious student of yoga.
Web of Life: A New Understanding of Living Systems--Fritjof
A challenging read but worth it, as Capra opens our perspective
of living systems beyond conventional definitions, to include microscopic
and macrocosmic patterns and processes of self-regulation and evolution.
Tao of Chaos: Essence and the Enneagram--Stephen Wolinsky
Wolinsky examines the concept of chaos as it comes to us from quantum
physics, compares it to a Taoist philosophy of emptiness, and then
completes the picture in a novel way with the human dimension of
psychology. The framework he uses for this last aspect is the Enneagram,
the ancient Sufi system for classifying human personality types.
Wolinsky has the rare insight to see the common element in all nine
types: a fear of going back to, or a denial of the reality of, an
original state of emptiness/fullness experienced in the womb. If
we can manage to overcome this block with clear awareness, we can
free ourselves from addictive distractions and come face to face
with the underlying peace of the void, knowing our present unity
with all creation.
Shirley is flakey and homespun by turns, delving into Lemurian
lore here, dealing with diarrhea under a chestnut tree there. An
engaging and candid self-portrait of the famous actress as she sheds
her layers of fame and becomes a pilgrim walking the historic trail
to northwestern Spain.
Best Self: Using the Enneagram to Free the Soul--Kathleen Hurley
and Theodore Dobson
An original and in-depth use of the ancient personality system,
the Enneagram, to aid modern readers in doing soul-work. The emphasis
here is on seeing and recovering the energy of the repressed center
to help balance the excesses of the dominant center. (The three
centers of intelligence are the Creative, the Intellectual, and
the Relational). One's "Original Wound" in early childhood can then
be brought into active healing and can give us an avenue toward
Other Bible--Willis Barnstone, ed.
Over years of exploring various aspects of alternative spirituality,
I've found bits and
pieces to compare and synthesize, but I never saw them compiled
in one handy reference book like this. If looking to original texts
is your cup of tea, The Other Bible will surely help. Alternative--usually
censored and repressed--scriptures of mainstream religions do exist;
it's just a matter of keeping them alive.
The Path of Ecstasy--Georg Feuerstein
... In all the welter of new age theories and out-of-this-world
channelled knowledge, there is really nothing new, when we dig deep
enough into the roots of ancient Vedic and Buddhist teachings. The
Tantric path--so easily misrepresented in the popular Western view
as mere sexual technique--is here illuminated as a spiritual tradition
in the highest sense. Not for everyone, perhaps; but I think that's
because the teaching is so pure, the Unity at its heart, so all-encompassing.
How many of us are ready to go so far through and beyond the limited
human scope, to identify with universal oneness, with the radiant
interplay between matter and energy that makes up suns and our own
enlivened cells? True, our kundalini energy is the way we are given
to experience such dynamic force in its immediacy, and it happens
that sexuality--when both primal and fully conscious--is the starter
motor for that cosmic engine of procreativity.
When it comes right down to it, what practice of spiritual, physical,
or emotional healing is more central than breathing. From the ancient
spiritual traditions to rebirthing and the new age, Michael Sky
gives us a powerful insights into this most basic life function.
From Buddha to LeBoyer, his sources are right on the mark, and through
the clear, compelling writing--full of practical exercises we can
do even as we read--we can more fully grasp, first hand, the importance
of our first and every breath.
Cosmogenesis 2012--John Major Jenkins
...This book is a challenge and a delight. Jenkins does a thorough
job of scholarship in astronomy and mythology to solve long-standing
puzzles about the Mayan view of the cosmos. Famous for their timekeeping,
the Mayans now can be understood to have had a visionary grasp of
the galactic year, the 26,000 year cycle of precession, and to have
imbued it with the significance of religious meaning. Jenkins does
not presume to lay out in concrete terms what the event of 2012
portends: but he does paint a clear picture of how celestial events
will line up over ancient Mayan monuments, and how this display
corresponds to the mythological tradition. With the additional influences
of hallucinogenic substances, and the mystery of the black hole
at the center of the Milky Way, we are in the realm of speculation
and imagination. Jenkins does his part well here, too; but ultimately
we can only look to the winter solstice of 2012 with a sense of
increased wonder and readiness for a transformation of consciousness.
If nothing else, the turning of a new galactic year gives us a sign
saying, "Now is a time of rebirth, of starting over. Are you ready
to move forward with us, your mothering stars, into a new cycle,
a new beginning?"
...concluding volume of the stellar Lyonesse trilogy. The headstrong
young princess has an excuse: she's half fairy. Here's but a tiny
jewel from this invented world of old Europe, a mere footnote in
the marvelous text:
*Untranslatable: a fairy
word signifying (1) passionate receptivity or involvement with each
instant of life; (2) a kind of euphoria induced by close attention
to unpredictable changes in the perceived surroundings as one instant
metamorphoses into the next; a dedicated awareness to NOW; a sensitivity
to the various elements of NOW. The concept of sklemik is relatively
simple and quite bereft of mysticism or symbol.
in the Zone: Exploring the Spiritual Dimensions of Sports--Andrew
...intriguing look at what makes top athletes tick, and how we more
ordinary mortals can reach deeper to perform better
the Death Habit: The Science of Everlasting Life--Leonard
The father of rebirthing pulls out all the stops in this tribute
to Babaji, Jesus and the other immortal yogi masters. Down to earth
prose reads easily--and there are simple practices outlined to enable
anyone to join the ranks of the living for as long as we're having
fun. For an early glimpse at the rebirthing movement Orr pioneered,
see Rebirthing in the New Age, below.
Power of Flow: Practical Ways to Transform Your Life with Meaningful
Coincidence-Charlene Belitz and Meg Lundstrom
...A comprehensive primer on synchronicity and flow, with techniques
and exercises to inspire us to give ourselves further to these currents
of deliverance. Nothing new here, but a good job of covering what
is, after all, the most important ground to walk on.
Light of Sex: Kundalini Rising at Mid-Life Crisis--Barbara
...Fills a fascinating niche between tantra and astrology, cover
such topics as the chiron square and outer-planet transformation
points. "The point of life on earth is growth and experience,
not adult control of all realities."
Science, Myth and the Trickster--Allan Combs and
...Wonderfully comprehensive survey of the intellectual currents
surrounding synchronicity. Erudite yet readable. Covers physics,
neuroscience, psychology, myth, divination, famous case histories.
...This western hemisphere answer to the I Ching has always told
me what I most needed to hear, just when I most needed to hear it.
My new favorite book of personal prophecy and just plain universal
in this Book is True--Bob Frissell
...A student of Leonard Orr and Drunvalo Melchizidek,
Frissell follows his cult classic Nothing in
this Book is True with this patchwork sequel. His laziness is
apparent here as he throws together correspondence aimlessly tacked
with personal anectdotes, tapes of conversation, workshop notes,
quotes from other writers. Still, it is profound and well written
in terms of explaining key and interlinked concepts and fields of
thought. And all about the most important things to write about
these days: earth changes, soul changes, dealing with our emotions.
Whether we call them our emotional body or our shit, we have it
seems to be the consensus among the helping professions to wade
through it to get relief from it. Frissell does engage us with a
personable presentation of heady stuff, core stuff of contemporary
and ancient wisdom. Who cares if itís mostly second-hand? We thank
Frissell for doing his homework for us, keeping up with the hottest
trends, and putting it all together in a good read that we can find,
to be honest, difficult to put down. Keywords you might find here
include: spiritual, psychological, self-help, new-age, personal
development, neurolinguistic programming, prosperity consciousness,
rebirthing breathing, conscious breathing, present time, now, Be
Here Now, perfection of all that is, vajrayana, flow, timelessness,
quantum theory, parapsychology, holographic principle, chaos theory,
fractal geometry, unity consciousness, universal mind, flower of
life, forgiveness, integration, transformation, original joy
in the New Age--Leonard
Orr and Sondra Ray
...A classic by the founders of a worldwide movement of breath therapy,
prosperity consciousness, release from parental disapproval, and
belief in physical immortality. Told with vivid personal recollection
and searing, experienced insight.
...A no-nonsense, step-by-step approach for contacting a "felt
sense" of emotion and its causes in present time.

The interesting thing
about Nothing is, there's a lot about aliens and so on which does
strain credulity. But there's also a strong core of chapters in
that book about "sacred geometry" which is undeniably, graphically
true to our left-brain brand of knowing. From that core you can
believe whatever you like about the rest--and in this book it's
all there laid out in plain view.

Mastery: Liberating the Master Musician Within - Kenny Werner
Weber is an accomplished jazz musician but speaks as the friend
and mentor of the musical beginner or performer alike. Take it easy,
he says. Relax. Get in touch with what this magic called music is
really about. Listen. Get out of the way, enough to hear what the
music wants to say, where it wants to go. If you can do this--feeling
your musical "I" to be as large as time itself--then you can say
with confidence, "I am a master."
