Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold (G. K. Hall Perennial Bestsellers Ser.)

by C. Lewis

Fascinated by the myth of Cupid and Psyche throughout his life, C. S. Lewis reimagines their story from the perspective of Psyche’s sister, Orual. ‘I saw well why the gods do not speak to us openly, nor let us answer . . . Why should they hear the babble that we think we mean? How can they meet us face to face till we have faces?’ Till We Have Faces is a brilliant examination of envy, betrayal, loss, blame, grief, guilt, and conversion. In this, his final – and most mature and masterful – novel, Lewis reminds us of our own fallibility and the role of a higher power in our lives.

The Three Wise Men: And The Birth Of Jesus

by Rudolf Steiner

‘Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying: “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East, and have come to worship him.”’These words begin a story that will be familiar to many, whether from images on Christmas cards or school nativity plays, or more directly from Christian teaching. As often with images associated with Christmas, they have the power to evoke all kinds of feelings, from joy and hope to sorrow and doubt. But what do we really know of the birth of Jesus, and who were the mysterious wise men that are reported to have visited him?In this freshly-collated anthology of Rudolf Steiner’s lectures, complemented with illuminating commentary by editor Margaret Jonas, we are offered solutions to the riddles surrounding Jesus’s birth and the seemingly conflicting accounts within Christian scripture. Could there have been two different births – in other words, two infants, both named Jesus, born to two sets of parents?From the mystery of the birth, we are led to a study of the three wise men – who are mentioned in only one of the four Gospel accounts. Who were they, what was their teaching, and what was the meaning of the star they followed? And, why did they offer gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the baby Jesus? The Three Wise Men offers solutions to the enigma of the identity and spiritual backgrounds of these magisterial figures and also provides suggestions as to their possible future roles in the drama of human development.Featuring colour images, this original, thought-provoking book is a wonderful gift for anyone seeking to understand the birth of Jesus and the wise men from the East.

The Holistic Approach To Cancer

by Ian Pearce

When people are told they have cancer, they are apt to feel shocked, angry and frightened. They usually still have the idea that they have 'caught' a fatal disease, and, unless it has been found early on, that they will inevitably slip towards death within a measurable period of a few years or even a few months. Furthermore, most patients still think that only the doctors can help them, and tend to assume that even this help is regrettably limited. For most patients have not yet heard of a very different idea about the nature of cancer and its cure, which is now gaining ground.You have been told that you have cancer. There is a great deal you can do to help yourself. You have a good chance of reversing your cancer. Take courage!No one can promise a cure. What can be said is that a growing number of people have pulled themselves round by the methods described in this book, taking responsibility for their health upon themselves. This is not an alternative to orthodox therapy; it is complementary to it, and greatly enhances its effects. It is extending orthodox therapy into areas which it does not usually reach at present.You can improve the quality of your life, and give the restorative healing forces a better chance to accomplish their task.So get started on it right away.

Disease Signs In The Iris: Interpretation and Medication

by Theodor Kriege A. W. Priest

Disease Signs in the Iris is intended for those who already have knowledge of the basic principles of irisdiagnosis. Part 1 is a translation from the German of the original work on iris interpretation by Theodor Kriege: Krankheitszeichen in der Iris. The disease signs are considered and explained as shown in original iris photographs. With few exceptions the conditions depicted have been confirmed by special methods of diagnosis, such as radiographic and blood investigations, as well as by the findings of surgical operations. The monochrome photographs especially highlight the structural changes and contrast values. The original text has been translated by A.W. Priest, and in Part 2 he correlates the iris findings with appropriate herbal and biochemical medication.

A Handbook Of Angels

by H C Moolenburgh

In 1981 a sermon was given in Leiden in which the minister called angels, 'a forgotten group'. This book is an attempt to recall a forgotten group into the memory of everyone.We read so much these days about matters concerning the underworld, that we are inclined to forget that an enormous 'upper world' stretches out above us. A world which is also extremely active, and one which is increasingly beginning to intrude. In A Handbook of Angels the author recounts his survey of four hundred people and the spectacular results, which include reportings of real-life sightings of angels.It becomes apparent that, though we may have forgotten about angels, they have not forgotten about us. They are returning to human consciousness on a gigantic scale.

Conflicts: A Better Way to Resolve Them (Pelican Ser.)

by Edward De Bono

Think, don't fight.In today’s world we use an out of date thinking system to navigate our way through modern society, especially when it comes to conflicts and disagreements.Conflicts argues that instead of our age old system of debate we should adopt what de Bono calls a ‘design idiom’ and use lateral thinking to navigate a feud. If two parties think their argument is best, we should be introducing a third party role. De Bono explains how this concept of triangular thinking and map making is the way forward. By highlighting how the current system holds us back and offering practical alternatives De Bono paves the way for a fundamental shift in conflict resolution.

When All You've Ever Wanted Isn't Enough: The Search For a Life That Matters

by Harold Kushner

'There is no Answer but there are answers . . .' Rabbi Kushner's previous bestseller, When Bad Things Happen to Good People, brought comfort to millions by helping them cope with life's shattering tragedies. In When All You've Ever Wanted Isn't Enough he applies his compassionate mind to another kind of problem, one more delicate that that of sudden tragedy, but just as dangerous - the felling that life is utterly meaningless.

'Sensible and helpful...At a time when most self-help manuals are topical consumer reading, it is refreshing to find one that attempts to deal with the timeless' New York Times 'A thoughtful, well-reasoned meditation and a useful spiritual manual' Washington Post 'Wise, compassionate, and sure to be in demand' New York Library Journal

天堂与轮回相比 漫画书 作者搭玛: Nyingma In The West (Nyingma In America Ser. #Vol. 1)

by Dharma

就像人们所说的,一幅画胜过千言万语,我希望通过这些漫画,我能 更有力 得表达我的观点。我们对上帝和宗教的看法还停留在过去-我 们不断重复那 些古时候写的,已经过时的观点。就算一本书是一千 或者两千年之前写的, 也不能代表当时的人们有独特的见解,或者 众神曾在那时降临人间。 古时候的人并不坏-他们只不过是记下了他们认为是对的想法,他 们记录下 来对上帝的观点,很大程度上受到了他们那时候生活的影 响。那时,残暴的 国王/独裁者和强人统治,要求人民顺从和忠诚, 以此给他们恩惠,这样的 形象就成了上帝的模版。至少有基督教和 伊斯兰教这些当今主流的宗教是这 样的。 屈膝下跪,祈求仁慈,发誓对国王忠诚然后得到奖励-这是当时人民 的生 活,也是他们所记录的想法。不幸的是,即使今天的生活有很 大的不同,绝 大多数人仍然盲目地遵循这样的想法。 通过我的书,我希望改变言论,为宗教和灵性注入新鲜的想法。 如果您想要联系我,邮箱地址是HeavenVsReincarnation@Yahoo.com

Mind And Movement: The Practice of Coex

by Tony Crisp

By using body movements and postures as doorways to our own natural healing process, we can actively release tension; find balance between the mind and the body; learn to dream creatively while awake; and tap areas of the unconscious thought unaccesible.Most physical movements and exercise are disconnected from our deepest drives, feelings and sources of healing. MIND AND MOVEMENT shows how to find a natural way healthy to healthy exercise and spiritual growth. The method of co-operating with our own internal healing and creativity has been known and used for centuries. In Japan it is called Seitai, in India Shaktipat; even the early Christian used this simple form of inner and outer hygiene.Recent research has linked this activity with the self-regulatory and dream proces within us. But, no other book has made plain to the public how to co-operate with these internal functions for one's own benefit.Tony Crisp has been writing about natural health and self help for thirty years. His special interest in the healing potential of the dream process led him to work as a therapist during the past fourteen years. It is out of this experience MIND AND MOVEMENT was written.

His intent is laudable, and much of the book is brilliant, both in its discovery of how particular people perpetrated evil and others interpreted it."—Stehen G. Bunker, Social Science Quarterly
