Tap Into the Archives of the Soul to Discover Your Path to Inner Peace Imagine opening a book that told the story of your life—and suddenly you realized that the painful parts held the key to knowing yourself as completely whole, well, and good. As many of Linda Howe’s students have found, this is the transformative process that we can experience in the Akashic Records, an energetic archive of the soul and its journey. With the Healing Through the Akashic Records book and companion audio-learning set, this leading expert shares how we can use our wounds—the limiting behaviors or ideas that we hold about ourselves-as a path to inner peace. “Although our healing work takes place in the spiritual realm,” teaches Howe, “this process involves clarifying our difficulties, gaining insights into them, and arriving at real-world solutions that we can bring into our everyday lives.” Using Howe’s unique three-step process that she gleaned over the past twenty years of working in the Records, you’ll learn how to tap into this infinite resource to gain a soul-level perspective on your wounds and unlock their potential for growth by exploring: How to access the Akashic Records using the Pathway Prayer Process™ Tips for identifying your primary sacred wound—the hurtful event, person, or circumstance that is holding you back Strategies for liberating you from old ideas and limiting patterns Tools for making choices aligned with your most authentic self for your highest good Three ways to activate the “Ascension Matrix” to help you realize your hopes and dreams “Governed by the principles of ‘judge not, fear not, resist not,’ the Akashic Records provide a safe and ideal environment for our spiritual healing,” teaches Howe. Healing Through the Akashic Records offers practical wisdom and consciousness-shifting tools for developing a richer connection with our innermost self, a greater sense of aliveness, and increased joy for living.

This is an account of one of life's most painful experiences--the sudden death of a child. A mother's anguish compels her to examine beliefs about what comes after death and to explore ancient healing methods in Mexico, Brazil, and Bali. At its core a spiritual odyssey, The Sacred Wound is about creating meaning from life-shattering events--events which can utterly destroy us or serve as a call to extraordinary courage and growth.A life-shattering event is a modern day "sacred wound," a wounding so profound that it pierces the soul and penetrates the veils of who we are and what we think life is about. Like a mythological hero, we will emerge from the ordeal another person. As the author says, "For three years grief was my consort, it became my teacher." This inspiring and searingly honest book is about more than survival following the death of a loved one; it is about the gift in tragedy's other hand. It is about discovering the truth that love is the central experience of life and not simply mortality, and that this truth can emerge in ways we can never predict or expect

Addressing the pervasive longing for meaning and fulfillment in this time of crisis, Nature and the Human Soul introduces a visionary ecopsychology of human development that reveals how fully and creatively we can mature when soul and wild nature guide us. Depth psychologist and wilderness guide Bill Plotkin presents a model for a human life span rooted in the cycles and qualities of the natural world, a blueprint for individual development that ultimately yields a strategy for cultural transformation. If it is true, as Plotkin and others observe, that we live in a culture dominated by adolescent habits and desires, then the enduring societal changes we so desperately need won’t happen until we individually and collectively evolve into an engaged, authentic adulthood. With evocative language and personal stories, including those of elders Thomas Berry and Joanna Macy, this book defines eight stages of human life — Innocent, Explorer, Thespian, Wanderer, Soul Apprentice, Artisan, Master, and Sage — and describes the challenges and benefits of each. Plotkin offers a way of progressing from our current egocentric, aggressively competitive, consumer society to an ecocentric, soul-based one that is sustainable, cooperative, and compassionate. At once a primer on human development and a manifesto for change, Nature and the Human Soul fashions a template for a more mature, fulfilling, and purposeful life — and a better world.

Since 1980, depth psychologist Bill Plotkin has been guiding women and men into the wilderness — the redrock canyons and snow-crested mountains of the American West — but also into the wilds of the soul. He calls this work soulcraft. There’s a great longing in all people to uncover the secrets and mysteries of our individual lives, to find the unique gift we were born to bring to our communities, and to experience our full membership in the more-than-human world. This journey to soul is a descent into layers of the self much deeper than personality, a journey meant for each one of us, not just for the heroes and heroines of mythology. A modern handbook for the journey, Soulcraft is not an imitation of indigenous ways, but a contemporary nature-based approach born from wilderness experience, the traditions of Western culture, and the cross-cultural heritage of all humanity. Filled with stories, poems, and guidelines, Soulcraft introduces over 40 practices that facilitate the descent to soul, including dreamwork, wilderness vision fasts, talking across the species boundaries, council, self-designed ceremony, nature-based shadow work, and the arts of romance, being lost, and storytelling.

"There is a harrowing lack of leadership in the world." With this simple statement Erik van Praag opens up a world of spiritual wisdom for leaders. Not a do-it-yourself book with quick remedies, van Praag's "Spiritual Leadership" focuses on the philosophical and metaphysical issues that underlie the difficulties faced by most leaders -- difficulties such as developing a vision, inspiring others, communicating effectively, listening to and acting on one's inner promptings, and maintaining a healthy balance between leading others and being led by them.
