The Tao of Physics: An Exploration Of the Parallels between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism
Fritjof Capra
1570625190
January 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
First published in 1975, The Tao of Physics rode the wave of fascination in exotic East Asian philosophies. Decades later, it still stands up to scrutiny, explicating not only Eastern philosophies but also how modern physics forces us into conceptions that have remarkable parallels. Covering over 3,000 years of widely divergent traditions across Asia, Capra can't help but blur lines in his generalizations. But the big picture is enough to see the value in them of experiential knowledge, the limits of objectivity, the absence of foundational matter, the interrelation of all things and events, and the fact that process is primary, not things. Capra finds the same notions in modern physics. Those approaching Eastern thought from a background of Western science will find reliable introductions here to Hinduism, Buddhism, and...


Secrets of the Lost Mode of Prayer : The Hidden Power of Beauty, Blessings, Wisdom, and Hurt

1401906834


·
 
Book Description
“There are beautiful and wild forces within us.” With these words the mystic, St. Francis, described what ancient traditions believed was the most powerful force in the universe—the power of prayer. For more than 20 years, Gregg Braden, the best-selling author of The God Code, has searched for evidence of a forgotten form of prayer that was lost to the West following the Biblical edits of the early Christian Church. In the 1990s, he found and documented this form of prayer still being used in the remote monasteries of central Tibet. He also found it practiced in sacred rites throughout the high deserts of the American Southwest.


Phenomenon
Sylvia Browne
0525949119
Oct 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From AudioFile
Sylvia Browne has become well-known as a psychic through her appearances on TV and a number of bestselling books. In this program Browne presents her interpretation of many aspects of the paranormal through explications of related terms. Jeanie Hackett works hard to give an animated narration of each segment without overdoing it. The audio format is not the obvious choice for a dictionary/encyclopedia. Nonetheless, Hackett's narration permits listening to the book as an introduction to the topic. Each term begins a new track, and the package contains an index of the terms by disc, a resource that may help to make this a useful reference.

The Cloud of Unknowing: The Classic of Medieval Mysticism
Evelyn Underhill (Editor)
0486432033
September 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Mysticism explores the nature of reality, beginning with the individual struggle for a clear vision of reality and leading to the transformed consciousness arising from that vision. This fourteenth-century manual was written by an unknown monastic as a guide for a young person starting on the path to a contemplative life. It states that a "cloud of unknowing" separates people from God, and that this cloud cannot be penetrated by the intellect--only by love. Unabridged republication of A Book of Contemplation the Which is called The Cloud of Unknowing, in the Which a Soul is Oned with God, originally published by J. M. Watkins, London, 1912.

Conversations with God
Neale Donald Walsch
0399142789
Oct 1996
Hardcover

Amazon.com
Blasphemy! Heresy! Who does this man think he is, claiming to speak directly to God?! Jesus did it, Muhammad did it, the Jewish prophets did it, but none of their Gods had the sardonic wit or raw verve of Prophet Walsch's God. Neale Donald Walsch isn't claiming to be the Messiah of a new religion, just a frustrated man who sat down one day with pen in his hand and some tough questions in his heart. As he wrote his questions to God, he realized that God was answering them... directly... through Walsch's pen. The result, far from the apocalyptic predictions or cultic eccentricities you might expect, turns out to be matter-fact, in-your-face wisdom on how to get by in life while remaining true to yourself and your spirituality.


The Essential Kabbalah: The Heart of Jewish Mysticism
Daniel Chanan Matt
0062511637
June 1996
Paperback
·
 
From AudioFile
Kabbalah is the deeply spiritual study of the soul and internal mysteries of Jewish philosophy clothed in allegory and requiring extensive knowledge of the Torah and Talmud. Daniel C. Matt provides a clear overview of the tenets and history of Kabbalah, along with illuminating excerpts from the original text. Edward Asner reads this philosophical work with a deep, slow, sonorous tone, which relaxes the listener. As the history is left behind, Asner's steady narration opens the mind and allows the finer points to sink in while contemplating the overall picture told by the stories. When the audiobook ends, the listener will want to hear it again to try to better understand these mysteries, which seem a little clearer after each period of listening. M.B.K.

The Varieties of Religious Experience (Barnes & Noble Classics Series)
William James
1593080727
February 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
"I am neither a theologian, nor a scholar learned in the history of religions, nor an anthropologist. Psychology is the only branch of learning in which I am particularly versed. To the psychologist the religious propensities of man must be at least as interesting as any other of the facts pertaining to his mental constitution. It would seem, therefore, as a psychologist, the natural thing for me would be to invite you to a descriptive survey of those religious propensities."

When William James went to the University of Edinburgh in 1901 to deliver a series of lectures on "natural religion," he defined religion as "the feelings, acts, and experiences of individual men in their solitude, so far as they apprehend themselves to stand in relation to whatever they may consider the divine." Considering religion, then, not as...



The Power of Kabbalah
Yehuda Berg
1571892508
July 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
At first glance, The Power of Kabbalah seems like an overly simplistic spiritual instruction manual. The language and anecdotes are rabbi-style cozy and the format is exceptionally approachable: one-to-two-page essays. But read a few pages and you're hooked into an experience that immediately promises enlightenment (and eventually delivers it). Although the Kabbalah has its roots in Jewish mysticism, this non-dogmatic manual is applicable to all spiritual seekers. Like Wayne Dyer's bestselling book The Power of Intention, this is actually a book about manifesting the life you want through understanding the laws of spiritual energy and attraction. "To fulfill its giving nature, the infinite force of Energy created a receiver—-in Kabbalah it's called a Vessel," author Yehuda Berg explains. You guessed it, all of us earth...


The Woman with the Alabaster Jar : Mary Magdalen and the Holy Grail

Review
John Shelby Spong : "Magdalen, the great Mary, emerges with new power."

Publishers Weekly : "Offers an alternative view of Christianity for women. . . . It cannot be ignored."
Catholic Women's Network  : "Provocative and controversial--it will outrage some and give hope to others."
National Catholic Reporter : "As Starbird says, 'No wonder icons of Mary weep!' "

Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code : "Margaret Starbird's research opens doors for each of us to further explore the rich iconography of our own spiritual history."

John Shelby Spong, Episcopal bishop and author of Born of a Woman : “Margaret Starbird is a seeker after truth. She seeks to recover the long-suppressed, and not...


Prophet
Kahlil Gibran
0394404289
September 1923
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
In a distant, timeless place, a mysterious prophet walks the sands. At the moment of his departure, he wishes to offer the people gifts but possesses nothing. The people gather round, each asks a question of the heart, and the man's wisdom is his gift. It is Gibran's gift to us, as well, for Gibran's prophet is rivaled in his wisdom only by the founders of the world's great religions. On the most basic topics--marriage, children, friendship, work, pleasure--his words have a power and lucidity that in another era would surely have provoked the description "divinely inspired." Free of dogma, free of power structures and metaphysics, consider these poetic, moving aphorisms a 20th-century supplement to all sacred traditions--as millions of other readers already have. --Brian Bruya

Descartes' Secret Notebook
Amir D. Aczel
0767920333
Oct 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. What Aczel did for mathematician Fermat (Fermat's Last Theorem) he now does for Descartes in this splendid study about the French philosopher and mathematician (1596–1650) most famous for his paradigm-smashing declaration, "I think; therefore, I am." Part historical sketch, part biography and part detective story, Aczel's chronicle of Descartes's hidden work hinges on his lost secret notebook. Of 16 pages of coded manuscript, one and a half were copied in 1676 by fellow philosopher and mathematician Leibniz. For him, Descartes's inscription of the cryptic letters "GFRC" immediately revealed his association with the occult fraternity of the Rosicrucians—Leibniz was also a member. The notebook also revealed to Leibniz a discovery made by Descartes that would have transformed...


The Celestine Prophecy: An Adventure
James Redfield
0446671002
September 1995
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Find out for yourself why virtually everyone you know has this book, described as an "adventure in pursuit of a spiritual mystery", on their coffee table. In the tradition of Carlos Castaneda's The Teachings of Don Juan.

From Publishers Weekly
Redfield's debut is a fast-paced adventure in New Age territory that plays like a cross between Raiders of the Lost Ark and Moses's trek up Mt. Sinai. Originally self-published, the book sold phenomenally, sparked by word of mouth, and may be this year's The Bridges of Madison County --with which it shares some regrettable stylistic similarities. The saga begins when the unnamed middle-aged male narrator whimsically quits his nondescript life to track down an ancient Peruvian manuscript (pretentiously called the Manuscript) containing nine...


The Gospel of Mary Magdalene
Jean-Yves Leloup, Jacob Needleman
0892819111
March 30, 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Interest in Mary Magdalene, the quasi-legendary woman of the Gospels who stood in an ambiguous relationship to Jesus, is booming just now. According to noncanonical sources, she was Jesus' wife, and probably not the prostitute with whom she is often conflated or confused. Among those unorthodox sources is one of the fragmentary early texts rejected by the church fathers and now called the gnostic gospels. Found in 1945 at Nag Hammadi in the Egyptian desert, it is a short but complex Coptic text that appears to render the voice of Mary Magdalene. This volume contains English translations of Leloup's French version of the original and Leloup's extensive commentary, which discloses the theology that inspired the lost gospel. Less dualistic and more woman-affirming than the canonical quartet, the Magdalene's gospel might be...

Book Description
"Just who is Ken Wilber?" For more than 30 years, a rising tide of readers enthralled by this visionary philosopher’s map of human potential have asked this question about the famously "low profile" author. Finally, early this year, Wilber—the author of A Brief History of Everything and Grace and Grit—agreed to create a series of in-depth dialogues on audio for the first time ever. The result is Kosmic Consciousness: a landmark recording that invites us to experience a full-length audio learning course with this celebrated thinker. Listeners will be surprised and delighted to discover the Ken Wilber behind the writer’s pen—spontaneous, irreverent, and incredibly passionate about how each of us can participate in the unfolding of human consciousness. Through over 12 hours of revelatory...

Conversations With God : An Uncommon Dialogue (Book #3)
Neale Donald Walsch
1571741038
October 1998
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
In keeping with the first two books in this trilogy, Conversations With God, Book 3 continues to clarify the muddy waters of our spiritual existence, but moves from individual and global issues to "universal truths," which apply to all levels of existence from the microscopic to the macrocosmic. It is difficult to criticize God, but if he is as pleasant as he presents himself in Walsch's books, then he won't mind the paltry mention of a structural problem. A hefty portion of Conversations With God, Book 3 backtracks to topics that were well covered in Book 1, and while a certain amount of recap is good to build on, Walsch's repeated return to these earlier conversations gets a bit frustrating for the reader who is familiar with the earlier books. Minor blemishes aside, Conversations With God, Book 3 explores some of the...
