You can create for yourself ongoing health, effortless bliss, prosperity, youthfulness, and even total mastery by consciously using the power of your mind and your breath. Rebirthing in the New Age describes an innovative technique called rebirthing. Rebirthing is a breathing process that does for adults what the Leboyer's "birth without violence" method does for infants... transforming the subconscious impression of birth into a gentle and awakening event. This breathing process produces extraordinary results because as one takes in the light, all else is revealed and let go of; thus one's heart is open to receive love, peace and joy. The rebirthing technique is augmented by the use of affirmations. Thoughts produce effects and we create our happy/unhappy world with our own positive/negative thoughts. The idea behind affirmations is to imprint positive thoughts regarding desired changes into the consciousness through autosuggestion, using the emotional response technique. "The Mind and the Breath are the king and queen of human consciousness." Leonard Orr Since the Rebirthing Movement started in 1974, it has spread all around the globe to over ten million people from all walks of life.

The Spiritual Key to the Psyche

A Metaphysical Answer to Modern Psychiatry

Psychiatry refers to itself as a science. How so, when a science has always been based in one of nature’ s many energies, such as light, heat and electricity? What natural energy is at the foundation of today’ s psychiatry? Unable to determine a science of the psyche, to garner validity they coined the term the behavioral sciences. "The Spiritual Key To The Psyche" is not psychological in nature. It is both metaphysical and psychophysical. The psyche is discussed here in a technical manner, the wonderfully ironic result of defining the psyche as a spiritual entity. Psyche (which is soul) communicates, and we do so comprehensively. The body/mind, of course, is the system by which we accomplished this. Firmly based in communication energies, the functions of human communication are biologically technical. Examined at the level of energy, these communication functions reveal their potential to influence, even to precipitate, what is viewed as human psychopathology. This book presents a meticulous system-analysis of the human psyche, a technical energy-analysis whose summative dynamics can be recognized as the unified science of the psyche for which psychiatry has long searched. “ A ground-breaking book that could change self-awareness and alter the course of psycho-therapy.” — Bruce D. Schneider, Ph.D. M.C.C. and author of "Relax, You Are Already Perfect; 10 Spiritual Lessons… to Remember."

“Forthright, sensitive, and compelling” (Edan Lepucki, New York Times bestselling author of California), this heartrending memoir from journalist Sarah Tomlinson recounts her unconventional upbringing and coming-of-age as colored by her complicated relationship with her father. Sarah Tomlinson was born on January 29, 1976, in a farmhouse in Freedom, Maine. After two years of attempted family life in Boston, her father’s gambling addiction and broken promises led her mother to pool her resources with five other families to buy 100 acres of land in Maine and reunite with her college boyfriend. Sarah would spend the majority of her childhood on “The Land” with infrequent, but coveted, visits from her father, who—as a hitchhiking, acid-dropping, wannabe mystic turned taxi driver—was nothing short of a rock star in her eyes. Propelled out of her bohemian upbringing to seek the big life she equated with her father, Sarah entered college at fifteen, where a school shooting further complicated her quest for a sense of safety. While establishing herself as a journalist and rock critic on both coasts, Sarah’s father continued to swerve in and out of her life, building and re-breaking their relationship, and fracturing Sarah’s confidence and sense of self. In this unforgettable memoir, Sarah conveys the dark comedy in her quest to repair the heart her father broke. Bittersweet, honest, and ultimately redemptive, Good Girl takes an insightful look into what happens when the people we love unconditionally are the people who disappoint us the most, and how time, introspection, and acceptance can help us heal.

A book to ease the life of therapists and inspire their clients As therapists, we have to get that mysterious 'It', which constitutes a real good therapist, into our flesh and blood. We need to study, to practice consistently. Ultimately, we will be known by the content of our life and by 'who we are' more than by what we say or do. We have to walk our talk. In our training program, we teach breathwork as the basis of the therapeutic work. We teach the principles of the 'Psychology of Selves' to help people understand how the dynamics in relationships work, as well as a technique, called 'Voice Dialogue' , because it is an excellent supplementary technique to use next to Integrative Breathwork. Furthermore, we teach some of the basic principles of Neuro Linguistic Programming and the fundamentals of Polarity Massage. In the course of this book, I will go through different essentials of the therapeutic profession that have become ever more important and useful to me over the years. All these elements are fundamental prerequisites I consider indispensable for doing thorough therapeutic work. Numerous case histories, gathered over the years, illustrate the different elements.

New Age and Neopagan Religions in America

From Shirley MacLaine's spiritual biography Out on a Limb to the teenage witches in the film The Craft, New Age and Neopagan beliefs have made sensationalistic headlines. In the mid- to late 1990s, several important scholarly studies of the New Age and Neopagan movements were published, attesting to academic as well as popular recognition that these religions are a significant presence on the contemporary North American religious landscape. Self-help books by New Age channelers and psychics are a large and growing market; annual spending on channeling, self-help businesses, and alternative health care is at $10 to $14 billion; an estimated 12 million Americans are involved with New Age activities; and American Neopagans are estimated at around 200,000. New Age and Neopagan Religions in America introduces the beliefs and practices behind the public faces of these controversial movements, which have been growing steadily in late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century America. What is the New Age movement, and how is it different from and similar to Neopaganism in its underlying beliefs and still-evolving practices? Where did these decentralized and eclectic movements come from, and why have they grown and flourished at this point in American religious history? What is the relationship between the New Age and Neopaganism and other religions in America, particularly Christianity, which is often construed as antagonistic to them? Drawing on historical and ethnographic accounts, Sarah Pike explores these questions and offers a sympathetic yet critical treatment of religious practices often marginalized yet soaring in popularity. The book provides a general introduction to the varieties of New Age and Neopagan religions in the United States today as well as an account of their nineteenth-century roots and emergence from the 1960s counterculture. Covering such topics as healing, gender and sexuality, millennialism, and ritual experience, it also furnishes a rich description and analysis of the spiritual worlds and social networks created by participants.

The New Jim Crow

Masseninhaftierung und Rassismus in den USA

Die Wahl von Barack Obama im November 2008 markierte einen historischen Wendepunkt in den USA: Der erste schwarze Präsident schien für eine postrassistische Gesellschaft und den Triumph der Bürgerrechtsbewegung zu stehen. Doch die Realität in den USA ist eine andere. Obwohl die Rassentrennung, die in den sogenannten Jim-Crow-Gesetzen festgeschrieben war, im Zuge der Bürgerrechtsbewegung abgeschafft wurde, sitzt heute ein unfassbar hoher Anteil der schwarzen Bevölkerung im Gefängnis oder ist lebenslang als kriminell gebrandmarkt. Ein Status, der die Leute zu Bürgern zweiter Klasse macht, indem er sie ihrer grundsätzlichsten Rechte beraubt – ganz ähnlich den explizit rassistischen Diskriminierungen der Jim-Crow-Ära. In ihrem Buch, das in Amerika eine breite Debatte ausgelöst hat, argumentiert Michelle Alexander, dass die USA ihr rassistisches System nach der Bürgerrechtsbewegung nicht abgeschafft, sondern lediglich umgestaltet haben. Da unter dem perfiden Deckmantel des »War on Drugs« überproportional junge männliche Schwarze und ihre Communities kriminalisiert werden, funktioniert das drakonische Strafjustizsystem der USA heute wie das System rassistischer Kontrolle von gestern: ein neues Jim Crow.
