Transpersonal & Spiritual

  • Backwards: Returning to Our Source for Answers - shatters the age-old belief that we are mere humans, that fate determines our destinies, and that a task master God demands our obedience and worship. Nanci L. Danison, JD, brings the credibility of a trial lawyer trained to evaluate evidence to her account of the answers to our most pressing spiritual questions: who is God? Who am I? What is the purpose of life? Why am I here? What happens when we die? And how should I live my life here on Earth? She offers a "life plan" from the afterlife that originates in and resonates with our true spiritual nature, and provides step-by-step guidance on how to access and develop our Source-like traits in order to bring peace and happiness to our own lives and our planet.
  • Backwards Guidebook - takes us deeper into Ms. Danison's personal encounter with the Source of all of creation, and provides more detailed explanations of the new spiritual truths brought forward in her first book. The Guidebook incorporates exercises designed to explore the reader's current spiritual beliefs and help guide them to a higher level of perspective--that of the Source itself.
  • Backwards Beliefs: Revealing Eternal Truths Hidden in Religions - witness, through the author's eyes, the creation of the universe, early man's need for gods and religions, the roles religious messengers have played throughout history, the origin of the Christian churches, Earth's future, and more. Backwards Beliefs provides an incredible peek into Mankind's history as it actually happened, a gift granted to the author during an afterlife experience in response to her concern that what she learned by dying contradicted her Christian education. This first-of-its-kind book reconciles some divergent spiritual vs. religious viewpoints with simple, clear, and easy-to-understand explanations of how eternal truths became hidden in human belief systems.
  • Bridge to Superconsciousness by Rick Prater. The author is co-managing editor of the Journal of Esoteric Psychology and former editor of Life in Action magazine.

  • Going Deeper: How to Make Sense of Your Life When Your Life Makes No Sense by Jean-Claude Gerard Koven. According to various cultures, including the Mayans, Hopis and the Bible, a planetary shift in consciousness is coming soon. Approximately 70 million highly evolved beings called Wanderers, have agreed to incarnate on Earth to help with the transition. Part of the deal is that they pass through the Veil of Forgetting, to temporarily forget who, and what, they are. At least, it was supposed to be temporary. This novel is an attempt to reach the rest of the Wanderers, those who know that they are "different," but can't put their finger on it. Perhaps you.

  • The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sit down with the Dalai Lama and really press him about life's persistent questions? Why are so many people unhappy? How can I abjure loneliness? How can we reduce conflict? Is romantic love true love? Why do we suffer? How should we deal with unfairness and anger? How do you handle the death of a loved one? These are the conundrums that psychiatrist Howard Cutler poses to the Dalai Lama during an extended period of interviews.

  • "The Shift" by Owen Waters. The author presents leading-edge cultural studies along with his discoveries about the human energy system in order to demonstrate that we are in the midst of the biggest cultural shift of all times. He presents his discovery of the perfect correlation between three natural phenomena - the social progression stages of Spiral Dynamics, the musical scale, and the human chakra system. From this, we can now predict the inspiring and creative path of mankind's future progress.

  • "The Path" by William Cozzolino. This book will take you far beyond the usual ideas about creating the life you desire, explaining the death experience and outlining the different planes of existence after physical death. He includes the scientific, metaphysical and religious sources that went into the formulation of his theories of existence and the human experience. Cozzolino's text may truly be a road to freedom, although not a comfortable one at first. Freedom does have its price, that of giving up ideas that limit us, separate us and have no actual meaning.

A spiritual tour-de-force that will take you on a journey of enlightenment and empowerment like no other.

They teach people how to trust their inner guidance, find their paths through life and create the realities that they need to find joy by fulfilling their destinies. This book summarizes the excellent help and guidance they have provided over the last 20 years.

  • "The Plan : The Need, The Hope and the Promise" by Robert M. Jankel, who writes: "It is our separation from each other that brings the disorder into the world. It is our desire to outdistance one another, our belief in a personal superiority, and it is an egotism multiplied a billion times that causes the cracks in the world and perpetrates the divisions in each of us." The author gives us a road to understanding the pure spirit with which we were born. When we discern this, we can take more consideration of each other, the nation and the world as a whole. And that is The Plan.

  • "Re-member : a Handbook for Human Evolution" by Steve Rother. This is a time when we are moving from a paradigm of follow the leader to follow ourselves. We have tremendous personal power that we often only use by default. Learning to Re-member that power and create our reality to one of our own liking is what this book is all about. As we individually evolve we raise our own vibrations. We then begin to adopt higher truths to support the higher vibrations that we carry. This is human evolution at its best. We are not only evolving spiritually but also physically and emotionally. We are all searching for higher truths to support the advanced beings we are becoming. This book will help you to re-member these truths.

  • "Spiritual Psychology: The Twelve Primary Life Lessons" by Steve Rother. Spiritual Psychology offers a radically different view of life and the human experience.

This book is one of the first to capture the essence of Positive Psychology!

  • "Spiritual Growth" by Sanaya Roman. A manual of how to be your higher self (inner being), and realize that it is you, and not some separate part of you. As with all of Sanaya Roman's highly inspirational works, this guide leads you through the understandings and practices which can spiritually set you free.

  • "The Ego and the Dynamic Ground: A Transpersonal Theory of Human Development" by Michael Washburn. Washburn does a fine job of recogizing that our vitality as awakening beings isn't only to be found on the heights of spirit; it also lives in the vales, in the lowlands and places of origin. The problem with verticality worship is that "enlightenment" becomes a goal by which one transcends everything, leaps over everything, instead of working through unresolved conflicts and lingering vulnerabilities.The explanations of the difficulties on the spiritual path related to reconnecting to the Dynamic Ground are nothing short of brilliant. It puts mystical experiences, Jungian psychology, and spiritual development into a clear, coherent model which makes perfect sense.

  • "Anatomy of the Spirit" by Caroline Myss. Weaves for us a picture of what the soul looks like, and how it works, describing the chakras in a fascinating and instructive way. Caroline also explains soul loss (when parts of our awareness separate when we have experienced a trauma) and soul retrieval. Also recommended is her book 'Sacred Contracts' which deals with what we came into life to do, the contracts we made to fulfill in this life, and the different ways that can get distorted, would be good for you to read.

Whatever your spiritual background, the Enneagram shows how you can overcome your inner barriers, realize your unique gifts and strengths, and discover your deepest direction in life.

  • "Care of the Soul : A Guide for Cultivating Depth and Sacredness in Everyday Life" by Thomas Moore.

  • "The Hidden Mind of Freedom: Meditation for Compassion & Self-Healing" by Tarthang Tulku. "Reality is all-encompassing: the absolute nature is one. Although we may feel separate from the original uncreated reality - whether we call it 'God,' 'peak experience,' or 'enlightened mind' - through awareness we can contact this essential part of ourselves." These 93 pages are full of wisdom, and concisely explain how to train the mind. Learn to awaken inner resources through meditation and self-observation.

  • "Mind Science: Meditation Training for Practical People" by Charles Tart. This excellent meditation guide book is written in the form of a one-day seminar that Charles Tart conducted in 1998. While there are many books written on the subject of what meditation is and how to go about it, few can match the hands-on feeling of being in a meditation class that this book offers.

  • "The Evolution of Perception" by Michael Newton. Probing far deeper than just near-death experiences or past life recall, Michael discovered extensive new information about life in the afterlife.

It documents over 100 cases where people have traveled out of the body, through what appears as a tunnel, and moved into the light, where they met spirit friends who had passed over years before.

  • "Knowledge of Freedom: Time to Change" by Tarthang Tulku. This book is dynamite for those who want to reach their full human potential and beyond. The author uses stimulating questions to guide one's inquiry into the way one participates in life and thereby contributes to the world. For example, "How much of our lives is patterned upon assumptions we never learned to question? How strong is our motivation to discover the knowledge we would need to give greater meaning to our lives?" To activate the power of this book, one must read in a different kind of way. This book is for reflecting, challenging, and questioning; not for merely skimming and accepting.

  • "The Four Agreements" by Miguel Ruiz. Reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob people of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the Four Agreements -- be impeccable with your word, don't take anything personally, don't make assumptions, always do your best -- offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform life into a new experience of freedom, love, and true happiness.

  • "The Infinite Way" by Joel Goldsmith. A mystic of rare insight, Joel spent his life teaching people how to attain the spiritual level of consciousness. This title is the introduction to his works.

  • "The Journey Home : A Kryon Parable : The Story of Michael Thomas and the Seven Angels" by Lee Carroll. What starts off as a simple story turns into a labyrinth of truths we can apply in everyday life, helping us to look at situations differently and grasp the knowledge we are here to learn.

  • "Jesus and the Lost Goddess: The Secret Teachings of the Original Christians" by Timothy Freke. Why were the secret teachings of the original Christians brutally suppressed by the Roman Church? Because they relate the myth of the Christian Goddess Sophia. Because they portray Jesus and Mary Magdalene as mythic figures based on the Pagan dying and resurrecting Godman and the fallen and redeemed Goddess. Because they show that the gospel story is a mystical allegory encoding the profound philosophy of Gnosis - Knowledge of Truth. Because they undermine all external authority by directly revealing the Christ within. Because they have the power to turn the world inside-out and transform life into an exploration of consciousness.

  • "The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment" by Ekhart Tolle. Beautifully and gently, Tolle creates a space where we can go beyond an intellectual understanding and actually "get it" at a more fundamental, core level. In a way which is most delightful, this book moves the reader beyond words and into an experiential state.

  • "Toward a Psychology of Awakening: Buddhism, Psychotherapy and The Path of Personal and Spiritual Transformation" by John Wellwood. This is an incredible adventure of integrating psychology and spirituality, written in a clear and loving voice. Compassion, understanding and wisdom seem to jump out from every page. This book shows how, in both psychotherapy and spiritual work, it is in being awake with thoughts, feelings, and sensations, without separation and distance, that healing can be accomplished.

  • "Putting on the Mind of Christ: The Inner Work of Christian Spirituality" by Jim Marion. A former Catholic monk and modern mystic asserts that the path of Christian spirituality, or any spirituality for that matter, is difficult, and that it is individuals, not the Church, who must do the work of preparing themselves for the Kingdom of Heaven. Marion uses his extensive knowledge of scripture to document his assertion that "putting on the mind of Christ," or achieving the same degree of spiritual illumination as the Christ, is the original and true goal of Christianity.

  • "Jesus and Buddha: The Parallel Sayings" by Marcus Borg. This lovely little book works beautifully as a meditation aid, or for those searching for the essence of two of the world's great faiths. It is astonishing to discover just how much the two masters had in common, just how universal their truths really are. The sayings (the left page is Jesus and the right page is the parallel saying from Buddha's teachings) stand on their own, unaccompanied or adorned by interpretation or discussion.

  • "The Gnostic Gospels" by Elaine Pagels. Gnosticism's Christian form grew to prominence in the 2nd century A.D. Ultimately denounced as heretical by the early church, Gnosticism proposed a revealed knowledge of God ("gnosis" meaning "knowledge" in Greek), held as a secret tradition of the apostles. Christianity could have developed quite differently if Gnostic texts had become part of the Christian canon. Gnosticism celebrates God as both Mother and Father, shows a very human Jesus's relationship to Mary Magdalene, suggests the Resurrection is better understood symbolically, and speaks of self-knowledge as the route to union with God.

  • "The Hatha Yoga Pradipika" by Svatmarama (translated Brian Dana Akers). Over the last half millennium, one book has established itself as the classic work on Hatha Yoga. An Indian yogi named Svatmarama wrote the Hatha Yoga Pradipika in the fifteenth century C.E. This definitive edition contains the original Sanskrit, a new English translation, and photographs of all the asanas. It's for people who practice or teach Yoga, or who have an interest in chakras, kundalini, philosophy, spirituality, mysticism, or meditation.
