JOURNEY OF THE ANGELS The Tobias Materials Geoffrey Hoppe and Linda Hoppe
Tobias is the entity who first appeared to Geoffrey Hoppe on an airplane in 1997. Tobias is an angelic being who has lived many lifetimes on Earth and came back through the angelic realms for what he calls the “biggest evolution of consciousness humanity has ever experienced.” He lovingly assists those who are going through spiritual transformations, seeking to integrate their divinity with their humanity and rediscovering the God within. His spiritual and inspirational messages have been delivered through Geoffrey and Linda Hoppe for the past 15 years.
JOURNEY OF THE ANGELS is an allegory told by Tobias through the Hoppes - his most powerful and positive statement yet: The key to spiritual transformation lies in the absolute surrender to the love of self and in the total acceptance of everything we have chosen to experience in the density of this third-dimensional realm.
The metaphorical aspect of JOURNEY OF THE ANGELS will increase its resonance for those familiar with the Crimson Circle material and the previous messages channelled through the Hoppes: “We are God also; we are sovereign, self-sustaining beings; we create our reality; there are no limitations.”
Fear is the strongest emotion that a human has. It is both paralyzing and destructive. Once you make a judgment, you enter your personal version of solitary confinement. You do not need cement-block walls and a distant, barred view of the sky to be imprisoned in fear. Judgment is where we begin. Once you judge a situation or issue and the person behind it as bad or good, wrong or right, you feel separate from the person you blame, and ultimately from all life. This sense of isolation contaminates you with fear, up to and including the fear of death and life. Exchange judgment for acceptance, and you walk free. The potential inherent in acceptance, rather than judgment, is vast. Once enough of us change our thoughts, society begins to change. Once one-tenth of humanity chooses to leave fear behind, we can make the transition from the darkness of dissension, destruction, and war to the light of peace. Your and my journey through fear contains the promise of Utopia.

JOY OF APPRECIATIVE LIVING Your 28-Day Plan to Greater Happiness in 3 Incredibly Easy Steps Jacqueline Kelm
Is it possible to study what creates joy in our lives - and to break down the results into a believable, achievable programme for inner fulfilment? Mechanical engineer, corporate manager and motivational coach Jacqueline Kelm discovered that the answer is yes - and she shares her results in THE JOY OF APPRECIATIVE LIVING.
One day while preparing for a speech before a local spiritual community, Kelm experienced a breakthrough. She found a simple way of integrating all the principles of positive-thinking philosophies into three basic exercises. These three steps to lasting, meaningful joy require less than five minutes a day, plus fifteen minutes on the weekends. Her workshop audiences were astounded.
Realising that she was onto something, Kelm designed a study to see how these exercises would work for different kinds of people. Using a cross section of adults around the United States, Kelm's “joy study” showed that after twenty-eight days, 97 percent of participants assessed themselves to be significantly happier. Even more remarkable, participants in the study continued to feel happier even six months afterward.
Just three exercises in twenty-eight days? It sounds so simple because author Jacqueline Kelm makes it simple. The book will highlight exactly how and why these exercises work. THE JOY OF APPRECIATIVE LIVING transforms complexity, insight, and years of trial into one focused, high-powered program of daily practice that can make all the difference in your world.
This surprising little book is full of knowledge and hope. It is broken down into three chapters in which the author Edsey leads the reader through the experience of taking stock of his or her gifts and blessings. He shows how the things we have in life are not nearly as important as who we are inside and that we are rich through our relationships and not in the amount of 'stuff' we have at the end of our journey. Through pointing out our ability to change from beings who are strictly existing to vibrant and more thankful people Edsey shows that there can indeed be great joy in owning a soul.
This full-scale study of Jung's life and work is written by a close student, friend, and associate of more than thirty years. It is a lucid, penetrating account of his career, stressing the essential wholeness of the man and tracing the difficult path that led to that wholeness. From his earliest years to his death, through the crowded inner and outer events of his long ifetime, Hannah presents a view of the real Jung, not the creature of legend and cult. She treats his theoretical apparatus as well as such personal matters as his relationship with Toni Wolff and his supposed flirtation with Nazism. Here we see Jung's humanity and his genius as a "navigator of the unconscious."
Jeffrey Raff illustrates the spiritual nature of Jungian psychology and the debt it owes to the tradition of esoteric religion. Unlike other books on Jung and alchemy which contain a psychological interpretation of alchemical material this work uses alchemy to understand the three cornerstones of Jungian spirituality: the self the transcendent function and active imagination. Through the interpretation of alchemical imagery Raff explains the nature of these three concepts and illustrates how together they form a new model of contemporary Western spirituality. The book is also unique in selecting alchemical texts for analysis that are relatively unknown and which for the most part have never been interpreted. In addition he presents two new concepts: the ally and the psychoid realm. Using these ideas and the new understanding that they offer it is possible to apply alchemical imagery to transpsychic experience; that is to a world of spirits which may not be reduced to psychological concepts. By including this realm in the study of alchemy and Jungian thought it is possible to gain insight into the nature of visionary and ecstatic experiences that form part of the path of individuation - the road to completion. With loving attention to rare alchemical texts the author poignantly expands key Jungian concepts to offer a useful and modern transformativa. - Clarissa Pinkola Estes author of Women Who Run With The Wolves
JUNG AND THE NATIVE AMERICAN MOON CYCLES Rhythms of Influence Michael Owen
The Moon Cycles a Native American teaching about the archetypal influences and forces that affect us at different times in our lives shows us how the rhythm of Jung's life coincided with the great events of the 20th century and offers new insights into Jung's life and death. Owen provides a fascinating perspective across some of Jung's more important dreams. He also quite unexpectedly casts new light on Jung's fateful associations with such twentieth century titans as Picasso and Freud and the controversial areas of his life such as his relationships with women and alleged anti-Semitism. We also learn how to place the events of our own lives on the Moon Cycles of the Native American Medicine Wheel gaining new perspective into the births and deaths in our lives (inner and outer) and the critical importance of the nine-month and three-year cycles. Michael Owen is a clinical psychologist and Jungian psychotherapist who has travelled widely and been apprenticed for many years with inter-tribal elders in indigenous medicine. He studied at the C.G. Jung in Zurich and was in private practice in Toronto. Michael has led retreats and workshops in Canada South Africa and Australia. He now has a private practice in New Zealand.
JUNG AND THE SHADOW OF ANTI-SEMITISM Collected Essays Aryeh Maidenbaum
This important work is a revised updated edition of Lingering Shadows: Jungians Freudians and Anti-Semitism which presented articles that arose from the 1989 conferences in New York and Paris where rumours of Jung's anti-Semitism were first addressed. Prominent Jungian analysts examine both the historical merits of the rumours and the psychological implications of our interest in this matter. It's a poignant and revealing look at how the Jungian community has reconciled the dichotomy of Jung-the-genius with Jung-the-person living in the society of his time. New material includes articles on Jung Kabbalah and Judaism; Jung Anti-Semitism and the Weimar Years; and an updated chronology and bibliographic essay. The editor also presents never-before-published material from interviews with some of Jung's closest colleagues: C.A. Meier Siegmund Hurwitz and Aniela Jaffe. Other contributors to this anthology include Adolf Guggenbuhl-Craig Werner Engel and Ann Belford Ulanov. The Editor Aryeh Maidenbaum obtained his Ph.D. in history from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He is known not only for his research and knowledge of the subject but also for bringing the question of anti-Semitism to the forefront of the Jungian community. He is a Jungian analyst and director of the New York Center for Jungian Studies.
JUNGIAN ARCHETYPES Jung Godel and the History of the Archetypes Robin Robertson
Two thousand five hundred years ago Pythagoras founded a mystical school based on the hidden truth that the simple counting numbers are the basic building blocks of reality. A century and a half later Plato argued that the world we live in is but a poor copy of a deeper truer world: the world of ideas. Neither realized that their numbers and ideas might also be the most basic components of the human psyche: archetypes. This book traces the modern evolution of archetypes from the Renaissance to the 20th century leading up to the archetypal hypothesis of the psychology of C. G. Jung and the mirroring of the mathematical ideas of Kurt Gödel. After reading this book you'll know what archetypes are and why they are important in our lives today!
In JUNGIAN SYMBOLIC PSYCHOLOGY the concept of symbol is extended to encompass the entire individual and collective psyche. Structuring symbols, complexes and functions are expressed as polarities that include both the subjective and objective worlds. Consciousness is described as the interaction of five archetypal forms of intelligence. Among them, Byington introduces alterity, in which the anima and animus archetypes relate dialectically, making it the archetype of democracy, of scientific and artistic creativity and of love. Through this dialectic of opposites, analytical psychology and psychoanalysis are analysed as complementary approaches and used to explicate shadow formation through fixation and defenses. In this manner, ethics can be studied psychodynamically and the shadow can be equated with sin and evil within the individuation process. Through this ample symbolic perspective, the psyche is conceived as being (following Heidegger), with its three main polarities - mind-body, mind-nature and mind-emotions - expressed through symbols. The matriarchal and patriarchal archetypes, along with the alterity and totality archetypes, form the ruling archetypal quaternio, which is the basis of symbolic elaboration to form the ego and consciousness. Parallel to Jung’s individuation process, Byington has conceived the cultural Self and the humanisation process based on Teilhard de Chardin to describe an archetypal theory of history. This theory includes the activation of the alterity archetype, whose mythological root is expressed through the myth of Christ in the West and the myth of Buddha in the East. JUNGIAN SYMBOLIC PSYCHOLOGY concludes with an interpretation of the Oedipus myth based on the dialectical relationship between analytical psychology and psychoanalysis.
C.G. Jung who accomplished nothing short of a revolution in analytical psychology made a unique impact both directly and indirectly on a very large number of people. At a time when some still believed that women did not have souls Jung took women seriously and felt that it was important that they have their own work. From the very beginnings of his private practice Jung had a disproportionately large number of women patients. The women came from all over the world to be healed and many remained as analysts colleagues or helpers of one sort or another. These are the women who had the courage to explore both the need for a spiritual link with a man like Jung and their own deepest feminine roots and who became known as the Valkyries. From Jung's mother Emilie Preiswerk Jung to his wife Emma Jung from the early days in Zurich to a consideration of the Valkyries themselves in their own work Maggy Anthony presents a lucid and highly readable analysis of this group of women who were not only influenced by Jung but who proved to have a crucial influence on him. Anthony respectfully shares their stories with modern readers who want to understand Jung and the impact his ideas had while he was learning - and living - his work.
JUNGS STRUGGLE WITH FREUD A Metabiological Study George B Hogenson
As Hogenson writes in chapter 1: Jung's memory of the ocean passage (from Jung's memoirs recording a voyage to America with Freud) focuses our attention on the central problem of this essay: What does it mean to lay claim to personal authority in a world where biography and autobiography have become thematic for an entire cultural discourse? How are we to comprehend authority in psychoanalysis? So begins his exploration into the relationship between Carl Gustav Jung and Sigmund Freud a broken friendship that profoundly affected twentieth-century thought.
JUNGS THOUGHTS ON GOD Religious Depths of the Psyche Donald Dyer
C.G. Jung has been called an atheist a modern Gnostic/heretical theologian and a critical philosopher. He viewed himself as an empirical psychologist but he was born to a Christian minister's family and raised in close proximity to the church. His childhood memories were of his early perceptions of God. One of the more appealing aspects of C.G. Jung's work is his exploration of the religious instinct - the images that rise up from the depths of the psyche - that part of our nature that is independent from the conscious mind. Jung does not argue the existence of God but examines the God-image in our religious texts. While other psychologists of his time were concerned with behaviour and having their clients fit into society Jung was interested in helping people recognize the spiritual journey to wholeness. An increasing number of psychologists today are acknowledging the relevance of spirituality for psychological health and for them and others who are interested in C.G. Jung's concepts this book is an important resource. Dyer has organized hundreds of Jung's references to God so that readers can have ready access to Jung's thoughts regarding the existence of God the essence of God the God personality acts of God our personal relationship with God and God and the Psyche. He also includes a chronology of Jung's writings on God. Donald Dyer is not a Jungian analyst but a layman who has been fascinated by Jung's work for over twenty years. In this book he shares his joy and fascination in discovering the parallels between Jung's ideas and experiences of God and his own affirming the connection we all have with each other in our search for the spiritual within.
In a spirited and accessible interpretation Spoto presents at least four perspectives on Jung’s philosophy of typology including an analysis of the popular Myers-Brigg Type Indicator. He shows where typology fits into Jung’s broader analytical work and illustrates how typology—while just a branch of Jung's psychology—can lead to a deeper understanding of Jung’s entire model of the human personality.

KABBALAH AND THE POWER OF DREAMING Awakening the Visionary Life Catherine Shainberg
In KABBALAH AND THE POWER OF DREAMING Catherine Shainberg unveils the esoteric practices that allow us to unlock the dreaming mind's transformative and intuitive powers. These are the practices used by ancient prophets seers and sages to control dreams and visions. Shainberg draws upon the ancient Sephardic Kabbalah tradition as well as illustrative stories and myths from around the Mediterranean to teach readers how to harness the intuitive power of their dreaming. While the Hebrew Bible and our Western esoteric tradition give us ample evidence of dream teachings rarely has the path to becoming a conscious dreamer been articulated. Shainberg shows that dreaming is not something that merely takes place while sleeping - we are dreaming at every moment. By teaching the conscious mind to be awake in our sleeping dreams and the dreaming mind to be manifest in daytime awareness we are able to achieve revolutionary consciousness. Her inner-vision exercises initiate creative and transformative images that generate the pathways to self-realisation.
KALI The Black Goddess of Dakshineswar Elizabeth Harding
Most major religions - Christianity Judaism and Islam - do not acknowledge the feminine power of God. Nevertheless this passionate and mysterious feminine power strikes a special chord in most people's hearts. The concept of the Mother Goddess in the West - the meek everloving patiently suffering female - is very different to the image of Kali in the Hindu pantheon. The Dakshineswar Temple near Calcutta is devoted to the worship of Ma Kali and this book tells you all about the temple and how Kali is worshipped there: her festivals and her daily rituals. You get an insight into mystics who attained God by worshipping Kali and read about the God Man Sri Ramakrishna who lived and worshipped the live image of Kali at the Dakshineswar Kali Temple. This is a living story and one of inspiration. A fascinating pilgrimage to one of the world's most active temples of the great Goddess. Required reading for all those interested in Goddess traditions. - Barbara Walker author of The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets This book will help clear the misunderstanding about the Hindu Goddess Kali. The author's rational and devotional approach makes her work authentic and inspiring. - Swami Chetananda The Vedanta Society of St Louis
