BIOLOGY OF TRANSCENDENCE A Blueprint of the Human Spirit Joseph Chilton Pearce
How is it that we as humans seem stuck in a culture of violence and injustice? How is it that we can recognise the transcendent ideal represented by figures such as Jesus Buddha Lao-tzu and many others who have walked among us and yet cannot seem to reach the same state? In THE BIOLOGY OF TRANSCENDENCE Joseph Chilton Pearce examines the current biological understanding of our neural organisation to address how we can transcend our current evolutionary capacities and limitations. This latest research identifies our five neural centres - or brains - and establishes that our fourth and most recently developed brain is located in the head while the fifth is located in the heart. It is the dynamic interaction of this head brain (intellect) and heart brain (intelligence) of biology and spirit that allows transcendence from one evolutionary place to the next--we are quite literally made to transcend. Conversely it is the breakdown of this interaction through the effects of cultural dictates surrounding us from the time we are children that keeps us where we are mired in the current crises of violence among people and between people and the planet. But Pearce reminds us that we are not stuck for good. Transcendence is our biological imperative a state we have been moving toward for millennia.

BIRTH OF A PSYCHEDELIC CULTURE Conversations about Leary, the Harvard Experiments, Millbrook and the Sixties Ram Dass and Ralph Metzner
With Gary Bravo
BIRTH OF A PSYCHEDELIC CULTURE shines a bright light on the exploratory culture of the time and experiments undertaken by Professors Timothy Leary, Richard Alpert (Ram Dass) and, then-graduate student, Ralph Metzner. Based on a series of recent (2003 to 2005) conversations between the survivors of that distinguished trio, Metzner and Alpert, facilitated by psychiatrist/writer Gary Bravo, the book describes their initial experiments with mind-altering substances while at Harvard. It goes on to cover experiments they conducted after being dismissed from Harvard, their trips to India and their reflections looking back through time at all of the above. It is filled with intriguing photographs marking and illuminating the events brought to life through the text.
Experiment advisors, supporters and participants who appear in the pages of this astonishing account include Aldous Huxley, Allen Ginsberg, Peter Orlovsky, Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassady, Arthur Koestler, William Burroughs and many other well-known personalities from that time period.
No understanding of the history of the sixties would be complete without some grasp of the work of Leary, Alpert and Metzner, the backlash to their experiments and the way in which drug use became absorbed into society thereafter. Nor can any diligent attempt to study the spectrum of the human mind exclude what we have learned from them about the impact of psychedelic drugs.
BIRTH SPACE, SAFE PLACE Emotional Well-Being Through Pregnancy and Birth Adela Stockton
POSITIVE PAIN is intended as a companion to the reader's emotional journey through pregnancy, birth and early parenting days. It focuses on the wide spectrum of feelings that may arise for the reader as their baby grows within, as they and their partner face the choices that form an essential part of the journey to parenthood and as they adjust to their new role as a mother. Ways of laying fears to rest, keeping birth gentle and protecting their baby-moon are included, with useful homeopathic remedies and further resources suggested throughout. The words and imagery in this book embrace the spiritual journey of birth, reminding the reader that a momentous occasion is indeed taking place as they bring new life into the world.
Stockton's approach places the mother's emotional and spiritual needs before her physical requirements, proposing that the experience of childbirth has the capacity to nourish rather than deplete the soul. It encourages the woman to take responsibility for her own birthing process and to surrender to her own instinctive powers rather than those of medical intervention. It is also the first book written by a British author to specifically highlight and detail the role of the UK Doula and her place within the UK maternity care arena. It illustrates, in an accessible way, how homeopathy is compatible with the subtle vibration of childbirth, alongside the simple use of remedies during pregnancy, labour and early parenting.
BIRTH STORIES Real and Inspiring Accounts From Australian Women David Vernon
BIRTH STORIES is a collection of nineteen candid stories by Australian women about the triumphs, challenges and delights of their experiences of childbirth.
Each of these women discovered the value of being able to make informed decisions about their maternity care and had positive and empowering birth experiences.
David Vernon, the editor of Birth Stories writes: 'I am concerned that if women only hear the 'bad' experiences, they will never gain the knowledge of how confidence-building a great birth can be. This is why I have collected these birth stories together — to let women and men read about women who have had a great birth and to encourage them to have a positive view of childbirth, rather than a fearful and anxious view.'
A revised edition of the classic that changed the way children are met when they enter our world - The original book that challenged society's beliefs about awareness in the newborn - Shows how gentle lighting, a quiet atmosphere, and a warm bath allow a newborn to ease the transition from womb to world without trauma or fear - Includes a new preface by the author, the founder of the gentle birth movement Birth without Violence is the first book to express what mothers have always known: babies are born complete human beings with the ability to experience a full range of emotions. First published in 1974, it revolutionized the way we perceive the process of birth, urging us to consider the birth from the infant's point of view. Why must a child emerge from the quiet darkness of the womb into a blaze of blinding light and loud voices? Why must an infant take its first breath in terror, hanging upside down as its vulnerable spine is jerked straight? Why must the infant be separated from its mother after spending nine months inside her nourishing body? Examining alternatives to technocentric approaches to childbirth, this new edition of the classic text, complete with a new author preface, shows us how we can ease the transition from womb to world without trauma or fear. Birth without Violence illustrates how to create an environment of tranquillity in which to welcome our children: a relaxed mother, gentle lighting, soothing atmosphere, and a warm bath that mirrors the child's prenatal surroundings. Dr. Leboyer's simple techniques demonstrate how a birth without violence has far-reaching implications for improving the quality of human life physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
BLAKE JUNG AND THE COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS The Conflict between Reason and Imagination June Singer
More than ever the time is ripe for June Singer's penetrating commentary on William Blake's work The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. For even the most devout literary scholars and art historians much of Blake's mystical visions and writings are perplexing. With his pen and brush he gave birth to mythological figures and fantastic metaphors. Singer shows us that Blake was actually tapping into the collective unconscious and giving form and voice to primordial psychological energies or archetypes that he experienced in his inner and outer world. Blake's writing and art was his personal dialogue between God and his own inner self - a reconciliation of duality - in which we can find clues to contemporary issues. In the 18th century Blake was a pioneer in finding nurturing and celebrating his personal connection with the divine a search that still appeals to people who are coming to terms with the contemporary struggle between science and spirituality the conflict between reason and imagination. With clarity and wisdom Singer examines the images and words in each plate of Blake's work applying in her analysis the concepts that C.G. Jung advanced in his psychological theories. There is no more perfect lens with which to look at Blake's work than that of Jung's concepts of the archetypes the process of individuation and the mysterium coniunctionis in which consciousness and the unconscious are united. This edition includes a new preface by June Singer and a reproduction of 24 pages from Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.

Dr. Koltuv a clinical psychologist and Jungian analyst shows the mythological she-demon Lilith as an archetypal part of the Self and in this fascinating study helps the reader to reconnect with this powerful energy in order to transform it and apply it to his or her own life. Lilith a long-haired she-demon of the night flies through Sumerian Babylonian Assyrian Canaanite Persian Hebrew Arabic and Teutonic mythology. It is said that Adam's original consort was Lilith and she represents the first Eve or the woman who tempted Adam with the apple from the Tree of Knowledge. Lilith is many things: she is seductress child-killer an evil energy. Lilith is also one of the essentially motherless forms of the feminine Self and arose as an embodiment of the neglected and rejected aspects of the Great Goddess. Lilith is Adamah that part of the Self today's women need to reconnect with in order to no longer be spiritual outcasts. Barbara Koltuv's book shows how the instinctual side of femininity has been dreaded and rejected by traditional patriarchal culture and religion. - Edward Whitmont author of Return of the Goddess
For everyone who didn't "play by the rules", and those who have evolved beyond them, the author offers "a little course in love", advising the reader to be emotionally brave to reach true happiness in a relationship.
