A self-help book based on the stories of the nine Muses from Greek mythology, by a renowned teacher and anthropologist.

If you've ever had even a small amount of curiosity about Sufism, mysticism, or alternative ways of thinking of the self in relation to the universe, this title is a good listening selection. Each side of a tape covers a separate aspect of Sufism, and a packaging insert outlines the topic of each. The quality of the live recording is excellent. Vaughan-Lee is easy to listen to and presents the material in an accessible format. The energy he exudes suggests he is speaking to an intimate group of followers. The ideas articulated are remarkably simple and expressed with clarity. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Signs of Life: The Five Universal Shapes and How to Use Them
Angeles Arrien

August 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
"The soul never thinks without an image," claimed Aristotle. Indeed, as Angeles Arrien displays in this reissued edition of Signs of Life, shapes have significant psychological and mythological meanings embedded in our minds. Understanding the messages they convey and our attraction to them opens up a door to the secret workings of our inner selves and to a fuller appreciation of the art itself. As in her widely popular The Tarot Handbook, Arrien applies her background as a cultural anthropologist to the import human beings attribute to shapes. Examining her results, she has developed an effective tool to determine the connection between a person's preferences for certain shapes and the same person's inner, subjective states. In the course of using Arrien's book, individuals, parents, teachers, and therapists will...
