Written at the request of her advanced students, "Initiation" is an illuminating autobiography that connects the twentieth century European life of internationally beloved teacher Elisabeth Haich and her lucid memories of initiation into the hidden mystical teachings of the priesthood in ancient Egypt. A compelling story within a story emerges detailing the life experiences that catalysed her spiritual path. In an earlier life in ancient Egypt, a young woman is prepared for initiation into the esoteric secrets of the priesthood of the High Priest Ptahhotep, who instructs her step-by-step, consistent with her development, in the universal truths of life. Throughout this extraordinary book, Elisabeth Haich reveals her in-depth insights into the subtle workings of karma, reincarnation, the interconnectedness of individual daily life choices and spiritual development.Elisabeth Haich shares usually hidden truths that only a few rare individuals in any generation, seek, find and communicate to others, enabling the reader to awaken within the essential understanding necessary to enlighten any life no matter what events manifest. In twentieth century Europe, from childhood to adulthood, through war and remarkable meetings, she demonstrates the power of turning the searchlight of one's consciousness inward and using every life event towards expanding consciousness. "Initiation" is a timeless classic communicated in modern terms inspiring generations of spiritual seekers globally. Whether read as an autobiographical novel unveiling mystical truths or as a unique glimpse into Elisabeth Haich's exceptional journey to initiation, the personal impact on the reader is profound. To read "Initiation" is to be part of the initiation itself.
Richard Rohr is a modern prophet calling us to change our ways. Rohr paints a critical picture of the prevailing thought, culture and attitudes of the present-day West -- which he calls "The Postmodern Opportunity" -- including our cultural biases, our embrace of victimhood, our often fearful attitudes toward one another and toward the Church and religion in general. Rohr offers hope in introducing the Franciscan path of transformation, the "new way of being that would change the face of history."
Rohr describes how following Saint Francis' way to forgiveness and love, and "owning the darkness, " can bring us out of the postmodern pit in which we find ourselves.
A raw, intensely personal memoir of spiritual exploration from one of the world's great commentators on religion. After seven years in a convent, which she left, dismayed by its restrictions, an experience recounted in Through the Narrow Gate, Karen Armstrong struggled to establish herself in a new way of life, and became entrapped in a downwards spiral, haunted by despair, anorexia and suicidal feelings. Despite her departure from the convent she remained within the Catholic Church until the God she believed in 'died on me', and she entered a 'wild and Godless period of crazy parties and numerous lovers'. Her attempts to reach happiness and carve out a career failed repeatedly, in spectacular fashion. She began writing her bestseller A History of God in a spirit of scepticism, but through studying other religious traditions she found a very different kind of faith which drew from Christianity, Judaism and Islam and, eventually, spiritual and personal calm. In her own words, her 'story is a graphic illustration -- almost an allegory -- of a widespread dilemma.;It is emblematic of a more general flight from institutional religion and a groping towards a form of faith that has not yet been fully articulated but which is nevertheless in the process of declaring itself.' Her lifelong inability to pray and to conform to traditional structures of worship is shared by the many who are leaving the established churches but who desire intensely a spiritual aspect to their lives. The Spiral Staircase grapples with the issue of how we can be religious in the contemporary world, and the place and possibility of belief in the twenty-first century.
OMG: Devotionals for Teens and Young Adults may not be what you're expecting. They're not lectures. They're not mini-sermons. They're meant to help you live your life better by connecting you with God - no matter what's on your mind or going on in your life. They can even help you pray. You'll find a short prayer at the end of each reading, to say out loud or to yourself. That will get you started, and the rest is up to you.
Written by progressive Christian pastors and writers whose differing backgrounds, ages, and opinions make these devotionals unpredictable and meaningful to all kinds of people.
The Lord's Prayer accompanies the lives of Christians. When we are happy or sad, when we eagerly wait for a child to be born or silently keep watch as an elder dies, alone in the woods or together in liturgy, filled with gratitude or emptied by grief, driven to praise or dragged to repent, the Our Father finds its way to our lips. To Dare the Our Father recognizes and respects these experiences but it envisions praying the prayer as a more sustained and challenging undertaking. How does praying the Our Father inform our thinking, feeling, willing, and acting? How does it become for us a transformative spiritual practice? John Shea explores these questions and more to discover what it looks like to become people of prayer.
Christians and non-Christians alike often embrace a low view of God, and consequently a casual view of sin and Scripture. This low view of God is reflected in their attitudes about God, their attitudes about Scripture, and their attitudes of the heart. This book is about being "transformed by the renewing of your mind" and not being "conformed to this world" (Romans 12:2).
Your Heart is who you are on the inside. It is what you think, your motives, and your desires. Our hearts have been conformed to the world's way of thinking. Paul wrote, "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind..." (Romans 12:2).
If you have a teachable heart, Attitudes of a Transformed Heart will help you truly honor God by what you think. Study questions are at the end of each chapter.
In this step-by-step guide James Redfield begins his exploration of the emerging interest in spirituality around the globe. Beginning with a survey of the most common synchronistic experiences, he shows how those interested in broadening their spiritual perception can actually experience for themselves the shifts in consciousness that are changing the human world. Described as the most direct explanation of the new world vision presented in the phenomenally successful Celestine fiction series, this fascinating and illuminating book reveals the author's inside view of how we are discovering the transcendent in our everyday existence and interpreting our individual synchronicity to find our destined purpose in life. Based on James Redfield's own experiences and those reported to him from every corner of the world since the writing of The Celestine Prophecy and The Tenth Insight, this book describes the first-hand growth techniques Celestine fans everywhere are looking for - perfectly setting the stage for the next remarkable book in the Celestine series, The Eleventh Insight.

Spirituality has only recently been conceptualized as a distinct construct from religion or religiosity. For centuries, the term religiosity referred to both personal and public attempts to relate to the divine essence of the universe. More recently, and first among the layperson, the term spirituality has been recognized as a private phenomenon and the term religion as a public phenomenon. This book discusses global practices of spirituality. It also examines societal attitudes toward spirituality and the effects it has on human health.
Discernment: Reading the Signs of Daily Life features the wisdom that spiritual leader and counselor Henri J. M. Nouwen brought to the essential question asked by every Christian and seeker: What should I do with my life? Nouwen emphasizes listening to the Word of God--in our hearts, in the Bible, in the community of faith, and in the voice of the poor as a way to discern God's plan. Although the late Henri J. M. Nouwen counseled many people during his lifetime, his principles of discernment were never collected into a single volume. Now, in association with the Nouwen Legacy Trust, Michael Christensen--one of Nouwen's longtime students--and Rebecca Laird have taken his coursework, journals, and unpublished writings to create this and other books in the series exploring God's will for your life.
Spirituality today has become much more personal than yesterday's religions. People long to explore, express and empower them-selves, without the traditional outer layers of a defined doctrine or denomination. In this environment, the message becomes peace, love, joy and freedom and resonates as "home."
Unity is a home offering a positive, practical, progressive approach to spirituality, honoring the universal truths in all religions and respecting each individual's right to choose a spiritual path that fulfills their unique lifestyle. HOW TO SPEAK UNITY is an A-Z guide for living life as it's meant to be lived, fully and joyfully.
