DRUGS OF THE DREAMING Oneirogens: Salvia Divinorum and Other dream Enhancing Plants Gianluca Toro & Benjamin Thomas
Oneirogens are plant and animal substances that have long been used to facilitate powerful and productive dreaming. From the beginning of civilisation dreams have guided the inner and outer life of human beings both in relation to each other and to the divine. For centuries shamans have employed oneirogens in finding meaning and healing in their dreams. · Includes extensive monographs on dream-enhancing substances derived from plant animal and human sources · Presents the results of scientific experiments on the effects of using oneirogens · Shows how studies in this area of ethnobotany can yield a scientific understanding of the mysterious mechanism of dreams DRUGS OF THE DREAMING details the properties and actions of these dream allies establishing ethnobotanical profiles for 35 oneirogens including those extracted from organic sources - such as Calea zacatechichi (dream herb or leaf of the god) Salvia divinorum and a variety of plants from North and South America and the Pacific used in shamanic practices - as well as synthetically derived oneirogens. They explain the historical use of each oneirogen its method of action and what light it sheds on the scientific mechanism of dreaming.

DYING TO BE ALIVE Death as Spiritual Healer Linda Bonnington Vocatura
Born of the author's personal experience as well as her studies in Jungian psychology this book takes the fundamental ideas in Healing the Wounded God which Vocatura co-wrote with Jeff Raff and applies to them to life's most important challenge; developing soul-consciousness by becoming reconciled with the inevitability of one's death. Through folk stories dreams and active imaginations we come to know Death as a personified entity who wants to cooperate with us in our personal spiritual evolution. We get to know Death as our guide from Here to Elsewhere and beyond to the Divinity existing in the infinite space outside our created world. The author discusses how Death can be a partner on the journey to individuation and in working with the ally a psychoidal manifestation of the Divinity. Through this teaching we can become aware of our immortal essence.
This book is the result of several recent recessions and many years of lean living. Nobody likes recessions and nobody likes lean living - and indeed nobody should like them. For fifteen years I tried to find such a book as this one. During those years of searching the bookshelves, I found that there are many books which give various ideas, but in none of them did I find a set of compact, simple laws for assuring success. I began searching for a book such as this after having been widowed and left with a small son to rear and educate. Since I had no training for work and no means of income, I would have given anything to have known then about the power of prosperous thinking. For a while I experienced depression, ill health, loneliness, financial lack and a sense of complete failure. It seemed that the whole world was against me, and that everything that I did went wrong. But with my son to provide for, I could not settle for failure. I had to succeed for his sake as well as for my own. Finally, when I was at my lowest ebb emotionally, physically and financially, I learned about the power of thought as an instrument for success or failure. I came to realize that the right use of my mind could become the key to healthy, happy, prosperous, successful living. As soon as I grasped this wonderful success secret, the tide began to change! This book plainly shows how prosperous thinking has helped people in every walk of life to experience these results. Furthermore, it shows how prosperous thinking can do these things for you, too!

EARTH SPIRIT WARRIOR* A Nature Based Guide to Authentic Living John Stowe
The Earth desperately needs people who actually live with the health of the planet as their highest goal. What makes a person become a planetary citizen? Clearly the issue is neither a lack of information nor of motivation. Most people already recognise the severity of the crises we face and sincerely want to help solve them. The key is to find a way beyond the feelings of guilt fear and inertia that keep us paralysed. EARTH SPIRIT WARRIOR provides such a path. The process is one of awakening. At a personal level it helps us reclaim dreams and core desires that have been buried beneath the demands of living in a technological society. When we express ourselves from this more authentic level not only do we enjoy renewed vitality and personal fulfilment we also begin to share the very gifts that are of greatest help to the Whole. At a deeper level we reawaken the inherent capacity for deep intuitive connection with the rest of life that although vital for human survival has been buried under a 'cultural trance' of isolation and alienation from Nature. The goal of EARTH SPIRIT WARRIOR is to reawaken the awareness of our essential interconnection with all life and to encourage the effective aligned action that flows naturally from it.
