In 1909 Charles Leadbeater, the leading member of the Theosophical Society, came across a young Brahmin boy on a beach in Adyar in Tamil Nadu. The elderly British cleric believed that the boy was special and would become the next avatar, the new messiah, who'll lead humanity into a new age. Jiddu was fourteen then. On 3 August 1929, Jiddu Krishnamurti was to be proclaimed the Head of an organisation formed in 1911 named the Order of the Star in the East... ...Also the day when he was to give the world the words that were to reverberate through time. Truth is a pathless land. It cannot be brought down, rather the individual must make the effort to ascend to it. You cannot bring the mountain-top to the valley. Jiddu's Journey is a penetrating prelude to the life of the most eloquent philosopher of our times-his compelling aphorism, his timeless vision.

The Great American Wagon Road is the story of three completely different individuals who by chance find themselves traveling together to California. First we meet Leatherwood, a drifting street musician with a mysterious, tragic past. He hitches a ride with Paul, a stiff academic on a spiritual quest. But everything changes when they cross paths with Lara, a Grateful Dead fan who is returning to the mainstream after two years on the road. The book is first and foremost a compelling road narrative and a description of the dynamics of a sexual triangle. But the novel goes deeper, as it probes the classic themes of death, spirituality, love, and identity. Finally, it is an unforgettable rendering of the American Experience. The Great American Wagon Road is Book One of the trilogy, A Pilgrimage to Ojai. Book Two, narrated by Lara, is titled The Gathering at Big Sur. And Book Three is Paul's Ojai Journal. Each book is narrated by one of the three main characters and each is complete unto itself. However the three together form parts of a whole powerful story.

Jae is troubled by philosophical questions. She mulls them over in private and spends many hours discussing them with her grandmother, but finds no answers. When her grandmother dies she leaves Jae a perplexing note: "seek and ye shall find." This sparks an incredible journey into a strange land where she meets unusual people, undergoes personal challenges, and discovers alternative theories on the meaning of life. On her journey through the ten stages of enlightenment, Jae sings in a concert, wrestles an ox, vanquishes egotistical desires, and comes to terms with the silent sacred space at the centre of her being, over which there is no authority at all, not even her self. She finally finds peace in the garden of Eden, but even this she must eventually abandon... to live truly in the here and now.

In 1891, newspapers all over the world carried reports of the death of H. P. Blavatsky, the mysterious Russian woman who was the spiritual founder of the Theosophical Society. With the help of the equally mysterious Mahatmas who were her teachers, Blavatsky claimed to have brought the "ancient wisdom of the East" to the rescue of a materialistic West. In England, Blavatsky's earliest followers were mostly men, but a generation later the Theosophical Society was dominated by women, and theosophy had become a crucial part of feminist political culture. Divine Feminine is the first full-length study of the relationship between alternative or esoteric spirituality and the feminist movement in England. Historian Joy Dixon examines the Theosophical Society's claims that women and the East were the repositories of spiritual forces which English men had forfeited in their scramble for material and imperial power. Theosophists produced arguments that became key tools in many feminist campaigns. Many women of the Theosophical Society became suffragists to promote the spiritualizing of politics, attempting to create a political role for women as a way to "sacralize the public sphere." Dixon also shows that theosophy provides much of the framework and the vocabulary for today's New Age movement. Many of the assumptions about class, race, and gender which marked the emergence of esoteric religions at the end of the nineteenth century continue to shape alternative spiritualities today.

There exists in this world people who have no soul. Anyone who could inflict such endless cruelty on women and children is less than human. It's hard for me to find the precise words I can use to describe my feelings about this reading experience: deep sadness, blistering rage, and a need to take revenge. Intellectually, I know all this is counterproductive, and a punishment inflicted upon myself. However, Thirty-Three Secrets Arab Men Never Tell American Women: A Dissection of How Muslims Treat Women and Infidels is a wake-up call for any women who would let her heart rule her head in personal relationships, no matter what the cultural background or religion.

A new take on the interplay of emotional and spiritual development. Insight, attentiveness, and transformative experience are central in both Buddhism and psychotherapy. An “intimate dialogue” that examines the interplay of emotional and spiritual development through the lens of Zen Buddhism and psychotherapy, this book artfully illuminates the intrinsic connections between the two practices, and demonstrates how these traditions can be complementary in helping to live a truly fulfilled and contented life. As this book deftly explores, integrating the two streams of Zen and psychotherapy can help us to better grasp our conscious and unconscious experiences and more fully develop the fundamental capacities of the self. Bobrow shows how the major themes of trauma, attachment, emotional communication, and emotional regulation play out in the context of Zen and psychotherapeutic practice, and how, in concert, both provide a comprehensive, interactive model of fully functioning human life.
