The Conscious Activist

Where Activism Meets Mysticism


Author: James O'Dea

Publisher: Watkins Media Limited

ISBN: 1780288433

Category: Political Science

Page: 256

View: 976

Communion is packed with compelling narrative and deep reflection on the demands of both mystical realization, effective activism and the integration of the two. Each chapter gives the reader both compelling story to experience key aspects of actual mystical and activist training as well as sections which convey the central developmental concepts of each. There is a rising tension in the book as the author engages in the contrasting requirements of inner development and outer change work in the world. The contrast between war, human rights abuse and rigorous activist frontline experience with intensive training by Sufi, Christian and other spiritual masters is held until powerful and authentic integration of both worlds is possible. The integration the author experiences and describes aligns with new paradigms in science, mind-body-health, the global peace movement, individual and collective healing, visionary activism and the lineages of mystical transmission. The reader experiences inspiration, deep insight and the articulation of an evolutionary worldview that dramatically demonstrates how the integration of spirituality and action can lead humanity though its current challenges.

The Crisis of the Twelfth Century

Power, Lordship, and the Origins of European Government


Author: Thomas N. Bisson

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 1400874319

Category: History

Page: 720

View: 5414

Medieval civilization came of age in thunderous events like the Norman Conquest and the First Crusade. Power fell into the hands of men who imposed coercive new lordships in quest of nobility. Rethinking a familiar history, Thomas Bisson explores the circumstances that impelled knights, emperors, nobles, and churchmen to infuse lordship with social purpose. Bisson traces the origins of European government to a crisis of lordship and its resolution. King John of England was only the latest and most conspicuous in a gallery of bad lords who dominated the populace instead of ruling it. Yet, it was not so much the oppressed people as their tormentors who were in crisis. The Crisis of the Twelfth Century suggests what these violent people—and the outcries they provoked—contributed to the making of governments in kingdoms, principalities, and towns.

As early as Chapter 1, author Marcie Sims defines critical thinking and goes on to explain the meaning and function of specific critical thinking terms and tools throughout the book. This element of critical thinking was something that Sims found missing in developmental writing texts currently available. Reaching beyond the usual writing instruction found in other texts, Sims gets to the core of developing the writer, which is to develop the writer as a thinker-writer. This approach to writing provides students with the basic tools for writing well-organized and developed essays that are grammatically and mechanically correct. 0321964128 / 9780321964120 Write Stuff, The: Thinking Through Essays Plus NEW MyWritingLab with Pearson eText -- Access Card Package Package consists of: 0205870147 / 9780205870141 NEW MyWritingLab with Pearson eText -- Valuepack Access Card 0321899881 / 9780321899880 The Write Stuff: Thinking Through Essays
