Shamanism, Colonialism, and the Wild Man: A Study in Terror and Healing

by Michael Taussig

Working with the image of the Indian shaman as Wild Man, Taussig reveals not the magic of the shaman but that of the politicizing fictions creating the effect of the real. "This extraordinary book . . . will encourage ever more critical and creative explorations."—Fernando Coronil, [I]American Journal of Sociology[/I] "Taussig has brought a formidable collection of data from arcane literary, journalistic, and biographical sources to bear on . . . questions of evil, torture, and politically institutionalized hatred and terror. 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

Crusade Against Drink In Victorian England (PDF)

by Lilian Lewis Shiman

Drink, 'the curse of Britain', was sweeping the land, or so it seemed to many Englishmen in the early decades of the nineteenth century. They held it responsible for crime, poverty and many other ills of the rapidly industrializing towns. A 'moderation' temperance reform organized in 1829 largely under middle class auspices soon gave way to a radical commitment to total abstinence in a great variety of worker self-help groups. When these too failed to change the drinking habits of most Englishmen the temperance movement sought new alliances. In the 1870s and 1880s Gospel Temperance married temperance to revivalist religion. It received the support of both established and non-conformist churches, and millions 'took the pledge'. But many did not; and as religious enthusiasm faded the anti-drink forces shifted their attention to the political arena. After successfully pressuring the Liberal Party to adopt limited prohibition, they mounted a great but unsuccessful campaign in the 1895 election. With this defeat the anti-drink crusade disintegrated, leaving the dedicated teetotallers socially isolated in the safe haven of their drink-free subculture.

Time Line Therapy: and the basis of personality

by Tad James Wyatt Woodsmall

Written by Tad James and Wyatt Woodsmall, Time Line Therapy and the Basis of Personality is a compelling study of the important elements that make up a person’s core personality, and a detailed exploration of – and introduction to – how Time Line therapy works in practice. Utilizing discoveries made by Richard Bandler, Time Line Therapy and the Basis of Personality expands and updates our knowledge of how people actually store their memories, and sheds light on the effect that the system used for memory storage has on the individual. The authors contend that the concept of Time Line, or the notion of time that you have stored in your mind, shapes and structures your experience of the world, and consequently shapes your personality. Time Line therapy is therefore based on the premise that the client goes back to the first time they remember a particular problem, does change work – utilizing Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) to eliminate irritating behaviors or issues – and, if necessary, goes to subsequent times when their behavior or response was a problem, and undertakes further change work to resolve it. Written in an informative and engaging manner, Time Line Therapy and the Basis of Personality offers readers the opportunity to see how Time Line therapy works – providing a clear description of how to elicit the Time Line, and sharing step-by-step methods to subsequently help the client to release a limiting decision or trauma, remove anxiety, or set a future goal. All of these key aspects are explained using clear language and easy-to-follow steps, and the authors’ expert commentary is further complemented by examples, exercises and transcripts in order to help the reader transfer the theory into effective practice. In Section I, the authors explain the NLP Communication Model and share their in-depth analysis of the filters – values, beliefs, attitudes, decisions, memories and meta programs – which we subconsciously use as we process the world around us and which form the basis of our personalities. Section II provides a comprehensive description of the Time Line and how it works: laying down a theoretical basis for the technique before offering insight into its practice and application with a demonstrative transcript of Time Line elicitation and change work in order to illustrate the concepts explored. In Section III the authors move on to carefully survey simple and complex meta programs (and how they can be changed) before exploring the formation, evolution and changing of values in Section IV, which includes a helpful exercise that gives guidance on how to elicit values from the client. Exploring many interesting contexts and how personality can be positively changed to help people live happier lives, Time Line Therapy and the Basis of Personality is a worthy addition to any therapist’s or NLP practitioner’s library and is suitable reading for anyone interested in behavioral change. Sections include: Section I – Introduction; Section II – Time Line Therapy; Section III – Meta Programs; Section IV – Values. Time Line Therapy and the Basis of Personality was originally published in 1988 by Meta Publications.

Lateral Thinking: A Textbook of Creativity (Pelican Ser.)

by Edward De Bono

You will become much more productive and a formidable thinker in your own right.'If more bankers and traders had read Lateral Thinking and applied the ideas of Edward de Bono to their own narrow definitions of risk, reward and human expectations, I suspect we would be in much better shape than we are'Sir Richard BransonEdward de Bono invented the concept of lateral thinking. A world-renowned writer and philosopher, he is the leading authority in the field of creative thinking and the direct teaching of thinking as a skill.Dr de Bono has written more than 60 books, in 40 languages, with people now teaching his methods worldwide.

Lateral Thinking: An Introduction (Pelican Ser.)

by Edward De Bono

Why do some people always seem to have new ideas while others of equal intelligence never do? Lateral Thinking is Edward de Bono’s original portrayal of what lateral thinking is, how it works and how to use it to develop your own potential for thinking and problem solving.First published in 1967 as The Use of Lateral Thinking, this classic international bestseller remains as relevant to learning, problem solving and creative thinking today as when it was first published. De Bono argues that conventional vertical thinking often inhibits our ability to solve problems and come up with new ideas. He then shows that lateral thinking is a far easier and more natural way to generate simple, sound and effective ideas and offers guidance on how to develop your own ability to think laterally. Lateral thinking is a technique that anyone can learn and benefit from.

स्वर्ग बनाम पुनर्जन्म कार्टून आधारित संस्करण: Presented In Honor Of Salo Wittmayer Baron (Studies In Economic History And Policy: Usa In The Twentieth Century Ser. #3)

by Dharma

स्वर्ग गर्भ, बचपन और भूतकाल का रूपक है। यह बचपन के उन खूबसूरत दिनों में वापस लौटने की उत्कंठा है जो पूर्णरूपेण चिंताओं से रहित और जिम्मेदारियों से विमुक्त व्यतीत हुए थे। हमारे परिजन हमारी देखभाल करते थे, हमें सुरक्षा प्रदान करते थे और उनसे हमें भरपूर प्रेम और स्नेह मिलता था। वे हमें भोजन कराते थे, कपड़े पहनाते थे और उनके द्वारा हम जीवन के खतरों से सुरक्षित थे; वस्तुतः हम अपने स्वप्निल संसार में आनंदमग्न थे। वहीं, पुनर्जन्म का अभिप्राय जीवन, वयस्कता और भविष्य से है। हम समय को पीछे नहीं ले जा सकते, हम भूतकाल में नहीं जी सकते। वास्तविक जीवन से भागना समाधान नहीं है। हमें 'घोंसले' से बाहर निकलना होगा और जीवन का सामना करना होगा। 'स्टारवार्स' मूवी में दिखाए गए भविष्य का जीवन एक दिन वास्तविकता होगी किंतु यह सब अपने आप ही नहीं हो जाएगा। इसके लिए हमें काम करना होगा, त्याग करने होंगे और सही चयन करने होंगे ताकि भविष्य के सपनों का संसार साकार हो सके। वे लोग जो आसमान मंे स्थित एक कपोल- कल्पित सेवानिवृत्ति का स्थान (स्वर्ग) चुनने की बजाय पुनर्जन्म अर्थात् वास्तविक जीवन को चुनंेगे, वही भविष्य की दुनिया का आनंद प्राप्त करेंगे। लेखक धर्मा को आपके विचार जानकर प्रसन्नता होगी। आप HeavenVsReincarnation@yahoo.com पर उनसे संपर्क कर सकते हैं।
