Inspiring, provocative books for mind, body, and soul. We are personal transformation for a modern generation.
'Growing into MySelf' follows Thea Euryphaessa as she comes full circle in her transformational Hero’s Journey, submitting to the deeper, darker realm of soul, sex, and an uncertain relationship, framed by a series of five Tantra workshops that Thea undertakes over the course of eighteen months. Thea learns to surrender to the body’s wisdom while also embracing intellect in her quest to become sexually confident and psychologically whole—in short, a woman of substance.
But no-one came here to live an ordinary life. Despite what our somnambulistic, mythless society society tells us — a place stuffed to the gilders with unawake, unthinking folk ruled by shoulds, oughts and have-tos; people who have no understanding of themselves; individuals afraid to acknowledge, let alone live their dreams — you came here to weave your unique essence and vision into the world, thus rendering it magnificent, both for yourself and others. — Thea Euryphaessa
Every woman is wired differently. Some women's nerves branch more in the vagina; other women's nerves branch more in the clitoris. Some branch a great deal in the perineum, or at the mouth of the cervix. That accounts for some of the differences in female sexual response. ― Naomi Wolf
Closing down in the midst of pain is a denial of a man's true nature. A superior man is free in feeling and action, even amidst great pain and hurt. If necessary, a man should live with a hurting heart rather than a closed one. He should learn to stay in the wound of pain and act with spontaneous skill and love even from that place. — David Deida
When it comes to spiritual growth, we humans are solar-seeking beings; eager for the bright lights of clarity and the bliss of illumination. Paradoxically, we all need to walk through the shadow of the dark night in order to discover a life worth living, according to psychotherapist and spiritual commentator Thomas Moore. Ultimately, a journey into the dark night will reshape the very meaning of your life.
In the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peace that is available in each moment. World-renowned Zen master, spiritual leader, and author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to make positive use of the very situations that usually pressure and antagonise us.
While other authors have touched on the subject, this is the first book fully devoted to spiritual bypassing. In the lineage of Chögyam Trungpa’s landmark Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, Spiritual Bypassing provides an in-depth look at the unresolved or ignored psychological issues often masked as spirituality, including self-judgment, excessive niceness, and emotional dissociation.
In this ground-breaking collection, psychologists, Jungian analysts, feminists and scholars of Goddess cultures explain for the first time that a new state in women's growth is about to emerge―conscious femininity. << Every woman (and man) should read this book.
Explores our need to 'own' our own shadow—the term Jung used to describe the dark, unlit part of the ego. Johnson guides us through an exploration of the shadow: what it is, how it originates, and how it interacts and is made through the process of acculturation. Johnson asserts that until we have undertaken the task of accepting and honouring the shadow within us, we cannot be balanced or whole, for what is hidden never goes away, but merely—and often painfully—turns up in unexpected places.
Pioneer study of the need for an inner female authority in a masculine-oriented society. Interprets the journey into the underworld of Inanna-Ishtar, Goddess of Heaven and Earth, to see Ereshkigal, her dark sister. So must modern women descend into the depths of themselves. Rich in insights.
"The women who is a virgin, one in herself, does what she does not for power or out of the desire to please, but because what she does is true." Here is writing with a thinking heart, blending art, literature, religion, and extensive case material. Continues the author's pioneering work on the feminine in both women and men.
If you look around your life and see scarcity and want, then Michael Bernard Beckwith has good news for you. “The Divine is offering its entire treasure house to you right now,” he teaches. “Happiness, health, love—and yes, money—are all manifestations of what the universe has to give.”
“The Ego, however, is not who you really are. The ego is your self-image; it is your social mask; it is the role you are playing. Your social mask thrives on approval. It wants control, and it is sustained by power, because it lives in fear.” ― Deepak Chopra
