In the brilliant visionary tradition of Carlos Castaneda, anthropologist Hank Wesselman first documented his spiritual journey in the acclaimed account Spiritwalker. Now he continues his travels through the spirit world in this astonishing book, leading us into the heart of one of the greatest mysteries of existence. Dr. Wesselman's inspiring quest began with a dramatic encounter on the island of Hawaii. Though he had feared his connection to Nainoa, a kahuna initiate and fellow mystic traveler, would be severed when he moved to San Diego, Wesselman would continue to merge minds with Nainoa. Over the next five years, the true purpose of their profound yet cryptic contact took shape. Wesselman had gained access to some inner doorway, putting him in the presence of a transcendent life force and intelligence. On the threshold of a dazzling new understanding of nature, he was a shaman in training, an initiate into the sacred, secret healing powers of the spirit world. This remarkable book gives us an unprecedented glimpse into the origin and the destiny of our species. Hank Wesselman has brought back from his extraordinary travels an extraordinary message: the keys to personal power and to the healing of all humankind. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Schamanische Techniken und Weltbilder haben in den letzten dreissig Jahren eine zunehmende Aufmerksamkeit in westlichen Gesellschaften erfahren und zur Bildung eines religiosen Feldes gefuhrt, das haufig als Neo-Schamanismus bezeichnet wird. Das vorliegende Buch analysiert dieses Feld in seinem kulturgeschichtlichen Kontext und zeigt auf, dass der moderne Schamanismus, der eine Popularisierung akademischer Wissensbestande darstellt, keineswegs als ein ganzlich neues Phanomen zu interpretieren ist. Vielmehr ist er Teil einer Faszinationsgeschichte des Schamanismus, die sich bis ins siebzehnte Jahrhundert zuruck verfolgen lasst. Nach einer Beschreibung der ambivalenten Haltung europaischer Beobachter zum Schamanen als einem religiosen Spezialisten - wobei der Schwerpunkt auf Aufklarung und Romantik liegt -, werden die zentralen Begriffe des gegenwartigen euro-amerikanischen Schamanismus-Diskurses, namlich Natur- und Seelenkonzepte, in ihrer Verbindung mit esoterischen und naturphilosophischen Traditionen der westlichen Neuzeit interpretiert. Die Verschrankung von Esoterik und Aufklarung, von Irrationalismus und Rationalismus, erweist sich dabei als ein Strukturelement der euro-amerikanischen Geistesgeschichte.

The Beauty of the Primitive

Shamanism and Western Imagination

The Beauty of the Primitive explores how shamanism, an obscure word introduced by the eighteenth-century German explorers of Siberia, entered Western humanities and social sciences, and has now become a powerful idiom used by nature and pagan communities to situate their spiritual quests and anti-modernity sentiments. With its interdisciplinary approach and engaging style, it promises to be the definitive account of this neglected strand of intellectual history.

Inner Paths to Outer Space

An investigation into experiences of other realms of existence and contact with otherworldly beings • Examines how contact with alien life-forms can be obtained through the “inner space” dimensions of our minds • Presents evidence that other worlds experienced through consciousness-altering technologies are often as real as those perceived with our five senses • Correlates science fiction’s imaginal realms with psychedelic research For thousands of years, voyagers of inner space--spiritual seekers, shamans, and psychoactive drug users--have returned from their inner imaginal travels reporting encounters with alien intelligences. Inner Paths to Outer Space presents an innovative examination of how we can reach these other dimensions of existence and contact otherworldly beings. Based on their more than 60 combined years of research into the function of the brain, the authors reveal how psychoactive substances such as DMT allow the brain to bypass our five basic senses to unlock a multidimensional realm of existence where otherworldly communication occurs. They contend that our centuries-old search for alien life-forms has been misdirected and that the alien worlds reflected in visionary science fiction actually mirror the inner space world of our minds. The authors show that these “alien” worlds encountered through altered states of human awareness, either through the use of psychedelics or other methods, possess a sense of reality as great as, or greater than, those of the ordinary awareness perceived by our five senses.

Imagine the Life You'd Love to Live, Then Live It

Peg Conley has been an artist all her life but, like many of us, took a long detour into the working world where she was a "corporate sales queen" in Seattle with a lot of success and a happy, busy family. Art became the thing she did on vacations, weekends and when she could carve time out of her busy life. Something gnawed at her, a nagging feeling that life might hold something else for her in the midst of it all. Then came the big "aha" moment—Peg heard a still small voice inside: "Imagine the life you want to live, then live it. It's that simple!" Her family encouraged Peg to pursue her passion. Despite a great deal of fear, Peg Conley did the thing she thought she could not do and dropped her big job, big house and big life and moved to San Francisco to start a business based on her artisan stationery. From a handful of handpainted cards, calendars and posters, her company Words & Watercolors was born and has been inspiring people, winning awards and raking in the sales ever since. Peg's intention with her work is to inspire and her art and writing all speak to life's great truths and those aha moments for which we all need reminders. What do you “imagine” your Ideal Life to be? It may take some time for it to unveil itself. You will need to have an idea of what it is you are looking to create. Spend some time in contemplation. For some that means a quiet meditation where images might come to you. For others, you might write about something you’ve always had a longing to create, or a dream that seemed far away and not attainable yet it doesn’t go away. The dream nudges at you, asking you to pay attention. Where words work for some people, pictures work for others. You may want to create a vision board. Gather your old magazines and begin ripping out the pictures that appeal to you, or draw your own images. Your Ideal Life will come alive via the images that resonate with you. Don’t hesitate to pick up a pen, pencil or crayons even and fill the blank pages with doodles of any kind. Do you still think of becoming a nurse? Don’t be disheartened, go online and research classes you can take at your local college to start the process. As someone once said, if you don’t start now, 5 years from now you still will be where you are but if you begin with baby steps, in 5 years you could be in a completely different place! So ask yourself the question: “What does the life I long to live look like?” Imagine it! Draw it, write it, collage it and just plain dream it. Believe you can have it and then go about creating it as you take daily steps towards becoming an enhanced version of yourself! All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.

Among other topics, the book expounds on the origin and meaning of life, humankind's place in the universe, the relationship between God and people, and the life of Jesus.

Die Klikiss kehren zurück Die Zivilisation der insektoiden Klikiss galt als ausgestorben, nun kehren sie zu Tausenden durch Transportale zurück auf die von ihnen einst besiedelten Welten, um die menschlichen Kolonisten zu vertreiben und den Kampf gegen ihre eigenen Roboter aufzunehmen, die sie einst nahezu ausgerottet haben. Sirix, der Anführer der Roboter, ist der zahlenmäßigen Überlegenheit der Insektenwesen diesmal nicht gewachsen. König Peter konnte sich unterdessen vor den Intrigen des Vorsitzenden der Terranischen Hanse, Wenzeslas, retten, und versucht nun, die neuen Kolonien für seine Konföderation zu gewinnen. Doch Wenzeslas Rache an den Abtrünnigen ist grausam. Und auch im Ildiranischen Reich ist man nach dem Sieg gegen die Hydroger weit von Frieden und Stabilität entfernt: der Sohn des Weisen Imperators hat sich mit den Faeros vereinigt und lässt die Feuerwesen nun einen Planeten nach dem nächsten vernichten. Nichts scheint sie aufhalten zu können ...

Dieses Buch enthält die weltberühmten Botschaften von Seth, einem „Energiepersönlichkeitskern, der nicht mehr in der physischen Form zentriert ist“. Jane Roberts erhielt diese Botschaften in Trance, ihr Ehemann Robert F. Butts hat sie aufnotiert. Seth spricht über Bewusstsein und Seele, die Existenz anderer Wirklichkeiten, den Gottesbegriff, über Gesundheit, Leben, Tod und das Leben nach dem Tod. Er schafft nicht nur Klarheit über diese Gegenstände, sondern zeigt auch, dass die Seele, jede Seele, über ungeahnte Fähigkeiten der „inneren Wahrnehmung“ verfügt. Auf Grund der inneren Stimme – durch intuitive Einsichten, paranormale Informationen oder Traumbotschaften – hat der Mensch Zugang zur universellen Welt höherer, multidimensionaler Realitäten.
