CAST THE FIRST STONE Ethics in Analytical Practice Edited by Lena B Ross and Manisha Roy
Who or what is really being served when an analytic relationship turns sexual? How can health best be restored to an impaired analyst? Do analytic training relationships teach overfamiliarity? Sixteen internationally known Jungian analysts examine the psychology of professional and not-so-professional patient relationships. Their thought-provoking essays will force you to pause reflect and question a little more before passing judgment. Codes of ethics evolve over time and may be different from culture to culture. Among the authors that add depth and understanding to current views of moral and ethical dilemmas are: Verena Kast from Zurich Fred Plaut from Berlin June Singer from San Francisco Rosemary Gordon from London and Lena B. Ross and Ann Belford Ulanov from New York City. Other authors practice in Israel Italy South Africa and the United States. In the introduction to this collection of position papers the editors write: Everyone was talking about ethics in analytic practice but always from the somewhat narrow perspective of who had been reported to have done what to whom and what in a behavioral sense should be done about it. It seemed to us that in the fury of the contemporary discourse the one uniquely Jungian aspect was missing that is the symbolic attitude.
Barbara Hannah was a close associate of C.G. Jung. This book features a seminar she gave in Zürich in 1954 on the images of the cat dog and horse in psychic life of humankind addressing dreams mythology and culture. This is an examination of Eastern and Western views on the afterlife and the effect this has on attitudes and beliefs.

Esencial lectura para el prehitoriador altrnativo. ANDREW COLLINS, autor de Gateway to Atlantis and From the Ashes of Angels (La Entrada a la Atlantida y De las Cenizas de los angeles) Amplia la mente, provocativo. Matthew Fox, autor de Original Blessing (Bendicion Original) En Catastrofobia, Barbara Hand Clow, autora de libros de gran exito, examina legendarios cataclismos y muestra como, contrario a muchas profecias de fatalidades, de hecho estamos en la cuspide de una era de increible crecimiento creativo. El reciente descubrimiento de los vestigios de arcaicos pueblos enterrados bajo el Mar Negro, es la mas ultima instancia de evidencia en ascenso de que muchas de miticas catastrofes de la historia--la caida de la Atlantida, el Diluvio Biblico--fueron eventos reales. Barbara Hand Clow muestra que una serie de desatres cataclismicos, causados por una masiva alteracion en la corteza terrestre de hace 11,500 anos, estremecio al mundo y dejo la psique humana colectiva profundamente cicatrizada. Somos una especie herida y este miedo sin procesar, que paso de generacion, es responsable de nuestreas constantes expectativas de la apocalipsis, del Y2K al famoso final del calendario Maya en el 2012. Catastrofobia revela las insidiosas fuerzas globales, que han usado estos miedos colectivos para controlar a la humanidad por miles de anos. Pero estamos a la mitad de un tremendo cambio en el ciclo precesional de la Tierra de 26,000 anos y existe toda la indicacion de que los cambios en la consciencia durante los ultimos treinta anos son los comienzos de una colectiva curacion de estos profundos miedos, presagiando que un tiempo de extraordinaria actividad creativa esta al alcance de la mano.
CATASTROPHOBIA The Truth behind Earth Changes and the Coming Age of Light Barbara Hand Clow
The recent discovery of the remains of ancient villages buried beneath the Black Sea is the latest instance of mounting evidence that many of the 'mythic' catastrophes of history - the fall of Atlantis the Biblical Flood - were actual events. In CATASTROPHOBIA Barbara Hand Clow shows that a series of cataclysmic disasters caused by a massive disturbance in the Earth's crust 11500 years ago rocked the world and left humanity's collective psyche permanently scarred. We are a wounded species and this unprocessed fear passed from generation to generation is responsible for our constant expectations of apocalypse from Y2K to the famed end of the Mayan calendar in 2012. CATASTROPHOBIA reveals the insidious global forces that have used these collective fears to control humanity for thousands of years. But we are in the midst of a tremendous shift in the Earth's 26000 precessional cycle and there is every indication that the changes in consciousness over the last 30 years are the beginning of a collective healing from these deep fears heralding a new age where we will see that the era of cataclysms is ending and a time of extraordinary creative activity is at hand. ¨ The long-awaited follow-up that begins the revelations begun in THE PLEIDIAN AGENDA whixh has sold more than 60000 copies

For people who have had to do battle with their own addictions or with those of loved ones or clients CELTIC QUEEN MAEVE AND ADDICTION offers the promise of understanding how that battle is suffered fought and won. Drawing on twenty-six years of experience as a Jungian analyst supervisor teacher and writer Sylvia Brinton Perera shows us how the imagery of ancient mythology illuminates the depths of the psyche. Maeve whose name means the inebriated one represents the profoundly human and archetypal need for experiences of ecstasy and sovereignty. Initiations involving her drink were sacred in Celtic society. Unlike the ancient Celts we rarely experience a sense of sacred ecstatic participation in the larger matrix that Maeve symbolizes. Through the ages images of the goddess-queen have come down to us in fragmented and diminished forms. We have also unconsciously torn parts of her rites out of their sacred context. We thus often find ourselves askew and addicted. Sylvia Brinton Perera retrieves the pattern of Maeve's wholeness to understand better what we need for healing our addictive behaviours. When in the grip of addiction we meet the great Irish Goddess in the guise of the inebriating one the loathsome hag the devouring maw and the starving Sheela-na-gig. But Maeve is also a battling goddess the maternal queen and the land itself and represents the principle of progress the sacred vessel and the mother of early infancy who mirrors holds and contains our raw unmediated desires. Written with passion and clarity CELTIC QUEEN MAEVE AND ADDICTION invites us to comprehend the wildness of the Celtic imagination and the watery depths of the psyche with a psychoanalyst who has accompanied many suffering the dislocations of modern life.

CHANGE OF HEART What Psychology Can Teach Us About Spreading Social Change Nick Cooney
Should anti-war protestors use graphic images to get public support for their cause or will such images turn the public off? In encouraging the public to adopt sustainable behaviour, should environmental organisations ask for small changes like using energy saving light bulbs or big changes like giving up cars? Why do most people say they oppose the cruel practices of battery farms and sweatshops yet still buy products from these places? And how can charities get more people to say yes to their requests to volunteer, donate, recycle, write a letter to a political prisoner, support gay rights, go vegetarian, conserve energy or make other positive changes?
Scientific research has generated a wealth of information on how people can be persuaded to alter their behaviour, yet this body of knowledge has been largely ignored by those working to improve society. CHANGE OF HEART brings this information to light so that charities, community organisers and others can make science-driven decisions in their advocacy work. The book examines over 80 years of empirical research in areas including social psychology, communication studies, diffusion studies, network systems and social marketing, distilling the highlights into easy-to-use advice and serving as a psychology primer for anyone wanting to spread progressive social change.

CHANGING CHILDRENS BEHAVIOUR By Changing the People Places and Activities in their Lives Richard Munger
Is your child doing poorly in school? Hanging out with the wrong crowd or having trouble making friends? Defiant and argumentative at home? In this provocative new book author Richard Munger makes the case that the environments in which a child lives plays and studies are even more important than personality in shaping that child's behaviour - for good or for bad. So he says making changes in the people places and activities in a child's life can have profound effects on his or her behaviour. He identifies ten behaviour settings in which children and adolescents spend most of their time - home neighbourhood school after-school electronic (TV computer and other media) friends work faith recreation and leisure & sports. For parents and professionals Munger discusses what research has revealed about the impact of the ten environments on children's lives. At the end of each chapter he provides a quiz to help parents develop a profile of their child's environmental strengths and weaknesses and then make suggestions to improve them.

CHASING SMALLWOOD Talking with the Other Side Frank DeMarco
In December, 2005, Frank DeMarco began several months of regular altered-state “conversations” with a man named Joseph Smallwood, who had lived in 19th century America, had gone west to Oregon in the 1840s, had lived with the Indians in Minnesota and had fought as a Union officer in the Civil War. At least, those are the facts of his. This book is a record of those conversations.
As the author says: "Quite possibly this is a mixture of fact, distorted fact, and unconscious intervention, jumbled together. Yet Joseph Smallwood is there, and you will see for yourself that he has a lot to offer us. I started out simply thinking to talk to Joseph about his life. Before you know it there we were, hearing that our time has a huge task ahead of it and that what we are and what we do is important to the other side."
CHASING SMALLWOOD has four interlocking themes: · How to communicate with the dead. · The life of Joseph Smallwood, a particular 19th-century American who loved in the West and fought in the Civil War · How and why the physical world is important to the non-physical world · The challenge of our times that we are not yet facing
