A mystic tradition can be considered a path or school of spirituality in which ones seeks a direct, personal experience of the Divine Presence - in whatever form that may be - without barriers or intermediaries. It could be said that while religions offer believers a system of belief, mystic traditions offer practitioners a system of experience. In Mysticism in the 21st Century (2nd edition), Monette examines eight contemporary spiritual movements: African Traditional, Buddhism, Gnosticism, Hermeticism, Sufism, Tantra, Witchcraft, and Yoga, providing the reader with an introduction to this branch of the study of religion. In additional to detailed notes, each chapter also includes a recommended reading list for further study, online sources, and review questions at the end of each chapter. Dr. Connell R. Monette is Associate Professor of Religion at Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane (Morocco), where he also serves as Mohammed VI Library Associate Director. He has a Ph.D. in Medieval Studies from University of Toronto, and his major areas of research are medieval literature and religion.

What can be gained from a dialogue between psychoanalysis and religion? Freud described religion as the universal obsessional neurosis, and uncompromisingly rejected it in favour of "science." Ever since, there has been the assumption that psychoanalysts are hostile to religion. Yet, from the beginning, individual analysts have questioned Freud's blanket rejection of religion. In this book, David Black brings together contributors from a wide range of schools and movements to discuss the issues. They bring a fresh perspective to the subject of religion and psychoanalysis, answering vital questions such as: How do religious stories carry (or distort) psychological truth? How do religions 'work', psychologically? What is the nature of religious experience? Are there parallels between psychoanalysis and particular religious traditions? Psychoanalysis and Religion in the 21st Century will be of great interest to psychoanalysts, psychoanalytic therapists, psychodynamic counsellors, and anyone interested in the issues surrounding psychoanalysis, religion, theology and spirituality.

In India it is said that Vaastu and Feng Shui are like grandfather and grandson. Vaastu, pre-dating Feng Shui by 3,000 years, describes the environment we live in, the environment through which we move along the path of our soul. As such, it is the single most important ingredient in your life, the determining factor on your spiritual path. Thousands of years ago the maharishis wrote down their understanding of the cosmic forces that rule the world in ancient palm leaf books that have come down to the present day. Living successfully and in harmony with the world is a matter of attuning ourselves with these forces, creating a natural architecture

In last few centuries and especially the twentieth century, hundreds of Middle Eastern, Indian, Chinese, Persian, and American theosophists claimed that they can guide their followers to self- and god realization. But though many of them were of some use and each added a color to the great picture of mysticism on earth, we should know that the whole painting is different from each color alone. In this book, we mention the existing total knowledge of mysticism that are gathered from Persian, Tibetan, Indian, Mexican and Jewish ancient books to add the final color or real story to it.

There are three major ways to follow the spiritual path: slow, fast, and the "Bardo." Most people are familiar with gradual awakening by using discipline and purification practices to cleanse one's self of emotional and behavioral conditioning. Then there are others who awaken suddenly, perhaps through a near-death or out-of-body experience, and they find themselves seeing and feeling in new ways about everything, including their own subconscious (the Bardo realm). To become a mystic, however, is a step further, as it involves both an inner commitment to spiritual growth in one's daily life as well as a deeper initiation into the mysteries of one's mind. The author, Carol Parrish-Harra, is a trusted master in helping train and guide those individuals who seek to grow in their inner life----in both the pain and the ecstasy. In The Making of a Mystic, she shares age-old wisdom gleaned from previous generations, and adds a wealth of personal experience gained from living a mystical life in our modern world. "The Making of a Mystic: A Twenty-first Century Mystic Speaks by Carol E. Parrish-Harra offers an excellent introduction to the path of mysticism by someone who has not only studied deeply but has had deep mystical experiences herself. As she writes: 'Our real heartfelt desire is to be in the Presence.' This book describes her quest to bring this heartfelt desire to realization. It is an inspiring work for travelers on the path." Robert Powell, PhD, co-founder of the Sophia Foundation and author of The Sophia Teachings, The Most Holy Trinosophia, The Mystery, Destiny, and Biography of Mary Magdalene, and other works. "Carol Parrish-Harra is a dynamic, spiritual trailblazer and a real visionary. Her spiritual path is a living synthesis of multiple strands of living wisdom and her story is a document of great importance. As a modern Mystic she is a source of evolutionary inspiration and spiritual renewal, and I warmly recommend the book!" Soren Hauge, Spiritual Teacher, Counsellor and Author, www.sorenhauge.com "The Making of a Mystic is what I would like all newcomers to the field of spiritual Esoterics and Mysticism to read. Carol Parrish gives easy-to-read descriptions of some essential Do's and Don'ts from her personal experience, and warns of several traps that can befall the advanced student. A gentle, but firm entry into this vast subject." Archbishop Frank Bugge, Australian Church of Antioch-Malibar Rite "The Making of a Mystic is the culmination of forty years' searching, finding and sharing insights into higher reality. Carol Parrish has inspired generations of students, and her new book-written in the straightforward, compelling style that is her hallmark-is a 'must-read' for all on the Path." John F.

The two symbols at the heart of Christian belief -- the Cross and the Grail -- represent the two faces of contemporary Christianity. The Cross is its outward face -- masculine, public, exalted. The Grail is its hidden or esoteric face -- magical, feminine, sought by many, but found only by those who are able to ask the right questions. In this inspiring and practical book, Robert Ellwood examines ways of making Christian belief vital and responsive to contemporary life, now and for the future. Drawing on the teachings of Theosophy and of the Liberal Catholic Church, as well as the themes and motifs of medieval romance, Ellwood shows Christian practice at its most profound to be a philosophical, meditative, and mystical path well in keeping with the Ancient Wisdom Tradition.
