The Mechanism of Mind: Understand how your mind works to maximise memory and creative potential (Pelican Ser.)

by Edward De Bono

The Mechanism of Mind presents Edward de Bono’s original theories on how the brain functions, processes information and organises it. It explains why the brain, the ’mechanism’, can only work in certain ways and introduces the four basic types of thinking that have gone on to inform his life’s work, namely ‘natural thinking’, ‘logical thinking’,’ mathematical thinking’ and ‘lateral thinking’. De Bono also outlines his argument for introducing the word ‘PO’ as an alternative to the word ‘NO’ when putting lateral thinking into practice. Drawing on colourful visual imagery to help explain his theories and thought-processes, from light bulbs and sugar cubes to photography and water erosion, The Mechanism of Mind remains as fascinating and as insightful as it was when it was first published in 1969. This is a must-read for anyone who wants to gain a greater understanding of how the mind works and organises information – and how Edward de Bono came to develop his creative thinking tools.

Radionics & The Subtle Anatomy Of Man

by David V Tansley

Radionics is defined as a method of diagnosis and therapy which is primarily concerned with the utilization of subtle force fields and energies, for the purpose of investigating and combating the causes of disease which ravage humanity and the other kingdoms of nature. But in examining the history and development of radionics from the pioneering work of Dr Albert Abrams and Ruth Drown to the latest experimental work at the de la Warr Laboratories, David Tansley discovered a curious paradox. In literature on the subject, and in the rate books which provide the very core of radionic therapeutic measures, there are plenty of references to man's physical organic systems, but little regarding the probability of underlying force fields which might govern and determine the health of the physical form.This book represents an informed endeavour to redress the balance by providing a simple yet practical outline of the subtle anatomy of man. The theory is not new: Abrams diagnosed at a distance, and Drown treated absent patients. David Tansley believes that the time is ripe for radionics to bear witness to an energy field of a more subtle nature: that is, in fact, its innate purpose.

Radionics Interface With The Ether-Fields

by David V Tansley

This book explores the interface that exists between the human energy field and the Universal Field of energy in which we live. It shows how these fields can be utilised for distant diagnosis and treatment.It also illustrates that the surest and most effective way to ameliorate a defect in any biological system, is to modulate the interacting and interdependent energy fields by way of the chakras.The same energy fields can be used to take photographs of distant objects, particularly the energy structures of living human tissues and pathological states existing in them. The vibratory patterns and potencies of homoeopathic remedies can also be drawn from the ether-fields and impregnated into neutral substances such as water or alcohol solutions which have a capacity for memory.Radionics is a healing art that links the physical world with the unseen worlds lying beyond the physical senses. Diagnostically it probes to the levels of causation of disease; therapeutically it is gentle and non-invasive.

Practical Thinking: Four Ways to be Right, Five Ways to be Wrong (Pelican Ser.)

by Edward De Bono

In Practical Thinking de Bono’s theme is everyday thinking, how the mind actually works – not how philosophers think it should.

From there he picks out and names the five levels of understanding – and the five major mistakes in thinking. From memes and Instagram to twitter and bestselling books like Mistakes I Made At Work, mistakes – and what we can learn from them – are a hot topic. With Edward you’ll learn exactly why we all make them.

The Inner Game of Tennis: The Ultimate Guide to the Mental Side of Peak Performance

by W Timothy Gallwey

Improve your game and discover your true potential by increasing your concentration, willpower and confidence. Described by Billie Jean King as her 'tennis bible', Timothy Gallwey's multi-million bestseller, including an introduction from acclaimed sports psychologist Geoff Beattie, has been a phenomenon for players of all abilities since it was first published in 1972. Instead of concentrating on how to improve your technique, it starts from the understanding that 'every game is composed of two parts, an outer game and an inner game'. The former is played against opponents on the court, but the latter is a battle within ourselves as we try and overcome self-doubt and anxiety. It is often won or lost before a ball has been hit. Gallwey's revolutionary approach, built on a foundation of Zen thinking and humanistic psychology, will teach you how to develop your concentration, work on your gamesmanship and help you break bad habits. You will also learn how to trust yourself on the court and how to maintain clarity of mind throughout the match, giving you a clear psychological advantage over your opponent. Whether you are an amateur or a pro, The Inner Game of Tennis is essential reading for overcoming the self-doubt, nervousness, and lapses of concentration that can keep a player from winning. It is guaranteed to change the way you play tennis forever.

Occultism, Witchcraft, and Cultural Fashions: Essays in Comparative Religion

by Mircea Eliade

In the period domoninated by the triumphs of scientific rationalism, how do we account for the extraordinary success of such occult movements as astrology or the revival of witchcraft?

In six lucid essays collected for this volume, Eliade reveals the profound religious significance that lies at the heart of many contemporary cultural vogues.

Rather than a popularization, Occultism, Witchcraft, and Cultural Fashions is the fulfillment of Eliade's conviction that the history of religions should be read by the widest possible audience.

The Evolution of Consciousness: As Revealed Through Initiation Knowledge

by Rudolf Steiner

According to the initiate-research of Rudolf Steiner, humanity is in a continual process of transformation and evolution. Modern-day consciousness, based as it is on sense perception and abstract logic, differs considerably from the consciousness of ancient humanity. At that time, says Steiner, the human being was seen to be a microcosm, a concentration of the laws and activities of the cosmos. The loss of such knowledge today has led to the existential quest for meaning, and even the cul-de-sac of atheism.In these comprehensive lectures, delivered to an English audience, Rudolf Steiner indicates how it is possible for people to rediscover their connection to the cosmos. He describes how one develops higher faculties of consciousness - what he calls Imagination, Inspiration and Intuition - and gives a vivid description of life after death and the individual's progress through the planetary spheres. It is in these spheres, he explains, where tasks and goals for future incarnations are prepared in cooperation with the spiritual beings of the heavenly hierarchies.The lectures culminate in a call for mankind to take its own destiny in hand through conscious and free development of spiritual capacities.The edition of this fundamental work features a revised translation as well as previously-unavailable addresses and question-and-answer sessions.
