Heaven's Breath

A Natural History of the Wind

Heaven's Breath

Wind is everywhere and nowhere. Wind is the circulatory system of the earth, and its nervous system, too. Energy and information flow through it. It brings warmth and water, enriches and strips away the soil, aerates the globe. Wind shapes the lives of animals, humans among them. Trade follows the path of the wind, as empire also does. Wind made the difference in wars between the Greeks and Persians, the Mongols and the Japanese. Wind helped to destroy the Spanish Armada. And wind is no less determining of our inner lives: the föhn, mistral, sirocco, Santa Ana, and other “ill winds” of the world are correlated with disease, suicide, and even murder. Heaven’s Breath is an encyclopedic and enchanting book that opens dazzling new perspectives on history, nature, and humanity.

The Dreams of Dragons

An Exploration and Celebration of the Mysteries of Nature

The Dreams of Dragons

Prowling the edges of science with insight and sensitivity, Lyall Watson maintains that there is a truth to be found behind every seemingly impossible legend. The best-selling author of Supernature and Gifts of Unknown Things, Watson takes us on a journey through prehistoric burial sites on the beaches of South Africa, ancient ritual iron mines in Swaziland, and present-day villages in Indonesia and New Guinea inhabited by man-eating dragons and headhunters. In these and other extraordinary travels we encounter phenomenon that defy traditional scientific explanation. Watson looks beyond the scientific "facts" and helps us--through his own remarkable discoveries--to see the poetry and wonder of the natural world.

The Heartbeat of Intelligence

The Heartbeat of Intelligence

The Evolving Heart Nature's Astonishing Evolutionary Intention for Humanity The Heartbeat of Intelligence shows why we are not fulfilling our potential, as individuals and as a species. It shows how and why we stepped off the evolutionary path intended by Nature, a path which would have put us several evolutionary steps ahead of where we are now had we not strayed from it. The book shows how stepping off the path has severely jeopardized the mysterious connection between the heart and the brain, a connection which is essential for our continued evolution as a species. The author believes that we will not continue evolving or even survive as a species without that understanding. The book explains: The theory of neoteny and why this is the most crucial aspect of human evolution. Why synchronicity is the law by which human beings will live in the future. How left-brain dominance has led to nearly all of the problems we face today. Why Nature is far more profound and mysterious than science allows. Why seeing the Universe as a hologram answers so many puzzling questions. Love and compassion, passion and joy, goodness and beauty, are the birthright of every human being, built into our genes and intended by Nature to speak in every beat of our heart. The book shows us the delightful steps of joy and lightness which will not only take us several evolutionary steps forward, but will help us save our beautiful planet. Astonishingly, this could all be accomplished in less than a generation.

The Nature of Things

The Secret Life of Inanimate Objects

Seven Story Tower

A Mythic Journey Through Space And Time

Seven Story Tower

From the white stag to the green knight, The Seven Story Tower examines how myth colors our perception of history, nature, and ourselves. Organized around seven key myths-representing the Irish, Greek, Sumerian, Indonesian, Amazonian, and Inuit cultures, as well as the fantasy world of J. R. R. Tolkien-this book is the perfect intro-duction to the common themes found in world mythology. Curtiss Hoffman, a noted archaeologist and anthropologist, takes us beyond the entertaining stories and uses insights from cultural anthropology and analytical psychology to analyze the many common themes found throughout. In particular, he examines the significance of names, numbers, plants, animals, the heavenly bodies, and the human body. The Seven Story Tower will enhance the reader's appreciation of myth's power today over our lives and cultures.

Building Love That Lasts

Secrets for Creating an Extraordinary Life and Profound Intimacy with Your Partner

Building Love That Lasts

“Clinton Callahan is an original thinker.” – Marilyn Ferguson, author, The Aquarian Conspiracy and Aquarius Now, and former editor Brain-Mind Bulletin. "For modern seekers, responding to the call for initiation into relationship, here is an open invitation." MALIDOMA SOME, AUTHOR "OF WATER AND THE SPIRIT" It's one of those rare books that will definitely wake you up. I consider it must reading for anyone seriously interested in the path of conscious relationship." -- John Welwood, author of Journey of the Heart and Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships This hard-hitting and innovative book about partnered relationship immediately challenges the deceptions about love and intimacy rampant in today’s patriarchal culture. At the same time, Building Love That Lasts reveals a step-by-step process for discovering and living out alternative possibilities. The author claims that even the best of our relationships are still generally basic level; what he calls “Ordinary Human Relationship.” He asserts that two more domains remain to be explored: namely, Extraordinary Human Relationship and Archetypal Love. The book describes exactly how to enter these new domains, and how to stay there long enough to cultivate genuine intimacy, nurturance, excitement and satisfaction together. The material for this book is startlingly original and fresh, directly distilled from over thirty years of trial, error and reevaluation within seminars and trainings conducted by the author in the U.S. and Europe. The essential teaching tools are “Thought-Maps” that illustrate and guide the dynamics of evolving relationship, coupled with a series of experiments/“explorations” to be undertaken alone or with one’s partner. Topics include: Making the leap from Defensive Learning to Expansive Learning. Breaking out of the relationship “Box.” The lie of being unlovable. Navigating in the realm of feelings. Communication skills for “explorers.

The Angel with Burnt Wings

The Angel with Burnt Wings

About this story Nothing could be a more true reflection of shackled lives behind the media’s publicity-seeking headlines that strike a whole country from time to time. Remember the gripping stories of the “downfall of a golden girl, sex web, shackles and shame, gangster’s moll, Bonnie and Clyde – like story, heartache of a fallen girl, the soul of a robber child, burning passion and devotion to a dominant lover and bad kids”! This is a story of a downfall and victory that each of us should read. It could happen to anyone of us. Parents open your senses and hear the cries of your child in obscurity.
