The new astrology finds its origin in three sources. The first is classical Astrology, here expressed by its finest contemporary voice, Dane Rudhyar, in previously unavailable articles on progressed life cycles. The second, Astrosophy, is represented by several authors, including its pioneer, Willi Sucher; it taps the cosmic sources of all astrologies. The third, suggested here by William Lonsdale’s studies of planetary aspects and asteroids, is an inward attunement to the star script and our own place in the stars. Astrology moves in the depths of the unknown cosmos, always in touch with fundamental correspondences of creation. Any given astrology forms itself from an image of this timeless movement.

This book provides eloquent support for the idea that spontaneous neuron activity, far from being mere noise, is actually the source of our cognitive abilities. In a sequence of "cycles," György Buzsáki guides the reader from the physics of oscillations through neuronal assembly organization to complex cognitive processing and memory storage. His clear, fluid writing-accessible to any reader with some scientific knowledge-is supplemented by extensive footnotes and references that make it just as gratifying and instructive a read for the specialist. The coherent view of a single author who has been at the forefront of research in this exciting field, this volume is essential reading for anyone interested in our rapidly evolving understanding of the brain.

Islam for Our Time

Written by an American Muslim convert who has lived nearly 40 years among the Muslims, the author presents an insiders account of Islams true place within the family of religions, what it means to be a Muslim living in the shadow of the modern world, and how to cultivate a life of spirituality through the way of Islam in todays anti-spiritual environment. Within its pages, history unfolds, mysteries are unveiled, and secrets are revealed that shed light on the great human story of spiritual awakening and fulfillment. This rigorous and highly readable introduction to Islam goes a long way to remedy the lack of historical perspective and the narrowing of intellectual and spiritual scope contributing to the outer and inner crisis of the Muslim world, as well as the poor understanding of this religion in the West. Another significant merit of Herlihys book is the way it sets out the universal principles of Islam, shared with other traditional faiths, and its emphasis on the moral and spiritual fruits of the religion. This work is an invaluable resource for Muslims and non-Muslims alike, providing as it does a solid grounding in the traditional spirit of Islam. Patrick Laude, professor at Georgetown University, Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Qatar Readers will find that this timely work by John Herlihy offers a sublime contribution to the field of Islamic Studies. Relevant for Muslims and non-Muslims alike, one of the books major themes is that the Islamic tradition converges with the unanimous tradition residing at the heart of each of the worlds religions. The book reminds us that the foundations of the modern and postmodern world were formulated in revolt from the sacred, which is an essential point to be recognized by anyone seeking to understand the crisis that consumes the contemporary epoch. This work provides ultimate answers to ultimate questions. Samuel Bendeck Sotillos, editor of Psychology and the Perennial Philosophy: Studies in Comparative Religion Amidst widespread miscomprehensions of Islam generated by Western media, readers who wish to understand the true nature of this noble tradition and its related spirituality will find this volume a trustworthy and illuminating guide. As a Western convert, philosopher, and above all practitioner, John Herlihy is well placed to dispel the fog of misunderstanding which often surrounds the subject of Islam. This book will be warmly welcomed by all those wishing to understand the timeless message of Islam, by seekers looking for practical guidance, and by those concerned with fostering a more harmonious global community of religions. Harry Oldmeadow, author of Frithjof Schuon and the Perennial Philosophy.

Living the Eucharist

If the liturgy is truly to be the source and summit of our lives, says, Fr. Paul Bernier in this simple, clear, and perceptive book, then we need to look more closely at what we are really doing when we celebrate Eucharist, and see more clearly how it connects to our lives outside the church door. Bernier shows how the liturgy is meant to help us learn to dance to God's tune. A movement that was danced to perfection by Jesus, and whose melody is repeated over and over in the eucharistic liturgy. Fr. Bernier explores the five main rhythms of this liturgical, divine melody--"the gathering rhythm, the storytelling rhythm, the prophetic rhythm, the nurturing rhythm, and the missioning rhythm. He shows how these rhythms are meant to lead us deeper into sharing Christ's life, both in the liturgy in every moment of our days.
