Louis M. Savary and
Patricia Berne

This refreshing approach to the tensions and frustrations of contemporary life combines strategies derived from various forms of psychotherapeutic, meditational and “centering” practices with a tender and devotionally rich application of the more traditional forms of prayer. The book teaches us how to use prayer to deepen our contact with others, balance our energy, affirm others as a way to self-healing. It teaches us how to overcome frustration, depression, and burn-out, and speaks to those who long to rediscover the virtues of traditional worship while applying more contemporary approaches to the stresses of modern existence.

Five sections offer appropriate forms of “prayer medicine” to balance inner energy (including the use of Christian “Mantras”), recognize and embrace emotions (both positive and negative), develop the reflective mind, find healing in physical activity, and deepen interpersonal connections.

Patton Boyle

This visionary narrative, reminiscent of Robert Bach’s Illusions, follows the spiritual initiation of a white Christian into the Native American tradition and reveals a deeper Christian impulse that is consistent with Native American wisdom. Set in the western United States on an unnamed Indian reservation, the novel describes the seeker, a White Man who has come to the home of Native American medicine man, Flying Eagle. Through Flying Eagle’s teachings on a variety of subjects, the protagonist awakens to a new understanding of self, the nature of truth, and the role of a warrior for truth. With reverberations of Carlos Castaneda, Screaming Hawk becomes not just a novel of traditional and Native American religion, but also a compelling spiritual journey for its readers.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Jason W. Brown

Jason W. Brown’s highly original approach to unfolding mental content through qualitatively different stages—the theory of microgenesis – developed out of direct clinical observation of patients’ symptoms in relation to focal injuries to the brain. Microgenesis – the “rapidly flickering recapitulation of an individual’s entire past as the content in which each moment of the now is experienced” (Deane Juhan) – is a process theory, as distinct from the localization and cognitivist psychologies that have dominated psychology and neurology for so many years.

Brown’s unique approach began with disorders of language, followed by problems of action and perception; these in turn led to a general theory of the mind and questions on the nature of self and world, the creative aspects of thought and perception, and the nature of time. The theory connects to Whitehead’s process metaphysics and even to some aspects of Buddhist thought. This book is a contribution to the philosophy of mind from the perspective of microgenetic theory.

“Readers who immerse themselves in [Jason w. Brown’s Time, Will, and Mental Process] will be transformed, never to think the same way again about the mind.” – The American Journal of Psychiatry

Bradford Keeney

Bradford Keeney’s extraordinary odyssey began in 1963, when, as a respected professor, psychotherapist, and author, he found himself suddenly visited, without the influence of hallucinogenic drugs or shamanic teachings, by remarkable visions of “shamanic realities” that called him to some of the most remote areas of the world. Shepherded on his journey by the spirit of the Oglala Sioux medicine man Black Elk (whose time of death was virtually the same as Keeney’s birth), Keeney was initiated into the healing practices of tribal peoples in North and South America, of Christians in the African-American sanctified church, of songomas, sanusis, and healers throughout Africa (among them the bushmen of the Kalahari and the Zulu of Southern Africa), and finally one of the only living masters of a pre-Buddhist healing art in Japan. Illuminated with the author’s own photographs of his life among the shamans, and blessed by elder healers throughout the world (who passed along not only their sacred knowledge but their spirit guides as well), Keeney’s story gives voice to the mind, heart, and soul of shamanic healing.

Mary Elizabeth Thunder

Abandoned by her mother when she was three years old, Mary Elizabeth Thunder survived abuse, a broken marriage, and a heart attack to become one of the most highly esteemed leaders in the Native American movement -healer, visionary, teacher, and chosen successor in a native tradition. Her story is also the true tale of a remarkable elder, Grandma Grace Spotted Eagle, who adopted her and guided her to spiritual awakening as a messenger. At once harrowing and uplifting, this memoir takes us from her early life and experiences with the legendary elders Chief Leonard Crow Dog, Wallace Black Elk, and Rolling Thunder, through a near-death experience that utterly transformed her, to nine remarkable years spent traveling America by van, culminating in her inclusion in the Sun Dance, one of the world’s oldest and most venerable initiation ceremonies. Intimate, painfully honest, essentially and overwhelmingly spiritual, this is a book about a woman’s quest for meaning amid two cultures and a compelling account of the visionary underpinnings of Native American life.

Kyogen Carlson’s Zen in the American Grain show us how the full integration of Zen practice with everyday American life is not only possible but inevitable.

“I think most Americans think of Zen as being some highly weird and esoteric pagan cult practiced by pretentious people with attitude problems. Actually, when you get right down to it there is probably nothing more practical, and even mundane, then Zen approached as an everyday way-to-live-your-life practice. This excellent book provides a series of short essays on the topic of Zen and real life problems of living in American society. Nothing particularly weird or startling about it – just some thought provoking guidance on incorporating buddhist practice in everyday life. Charlotte Beck’s books (Everyday Zen and Nothing Special) are similar – both are excellent and concentrate on Zen as a guide to living a fulfilling and useful everyday life. Highly recommended.” – “Buckeye,” Harvard, MA
