Dancing with Raven and Bear: A Book of Earth Medicine and Animal Magic

By Sonja Grace

ISBN-13: 978-1-62055-814-0 (Findhorn Press, 2018)

Because I have 25 percent Cherokee blood running through my veins, I feel I am awakening and drawn toward Native American traditions more and more. But since this book pulls comparisons with Norse mythology, it has taken me down into a new level of understanding my ancient past. Some truths cannot be told directly, so having the advantage of a master storyteller who can render deep spiritual truths in a form that I can understand is invaluable for me and anyone seeking the hidden secrets of our human nature.

Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age

By Gregg Braden

ASIN: B004PKH7TI (Hay House, 2009)

It’s a given fact that if we don’t learn from our past we are destined to repeat it. I recently interviewed Gregg Braden and after rereading this book, I find it clear that he has been onto something for many years. We are entering the beginning of another great cycle that ancient civilizations have warned us about, and if we heed that warning we can transition through the challenging and tumultuous times ahead. Some books are timeless and this is one.

Creating the New World in Times of Paradigm Shift

A New DVD from Jack Allis, Author and Spiritual Teacher

In his latest DVD, Jack Allis reminds us that 2012 may have come and gone, but these are still times of paradigm shift. Our old-paradigm civilized world is on the brink of its inevitable collapse and from this there is an opportunity to create a new world. Jack challenges us all to play our part in this. He asserts that there is only one way and that is in small sustainable communities that live in harmony with nature. This includes letting go of the old-paradigm matrix, reassuming responsibility for our lives, and developing the awesome powers of our spirituality. You may not agree with everything he says, but this DVD is definitely worth the watch. These are things we should probably be thinking about.

Natural Antibiotics and Antivirals: 18 Infection-Fighting Herbs and Essential Oils

By Christopher Vasey, ND

ISBN-13: 978-1-62055-735-8 (Healing Arts Press, 2018)

OK, let’s all be honest for a moment—traditional allopathic medicine is not working as a way to treat chronic illness. If you have found yourself in a situation in which you needed to use pharmaceutical antibiotics, this little book can help guide you back to health using probiotics to restore the health of your intestines. Our environment is full of toxins that permeate our water, air, and food so if you are looking for natural ways to be healthy in today’s world, this book is a must read.

The Global Mind and the Rise of Civilization: The Quantum Evolution of Consciousness

By Carl Johan Calleman, PhD

ISBN-13: 978-1-59143-241-8 (Bear & Company, 2nd ed., 2016)

The term evolution of consciousness is fairly new in our civilization. Why? Because we have traditionally linked evolution with biology. But the truth is that we have evolved physically about as far as we need to, and now we are starting to realize that consciousness, not survival of the fittest, is the driving force behind evolution. Calleman doesn’t really get into it but the reason this interested me is that I see consciousness evolving into realms unheard of, such as artificial intelligence for instance. In the same way that this book put light on my personal research into AI, it will shed light on many topics of interest, including ancient civilizations and religions.

The Miracle Club: How Thoughts Become Reality

By Mitch Horowitz

ISBN: 978-1-62055-766-2 (Inner Traditions, 2018)

Most books published on positive thinking point the way toward a destiny you may have control of, but this book actually guides you with some of the clearest thinking on the subject I’ve ever read. For someone who has written books that are all over the map, Mitch Horowitz focused his attention on this subject with laserlike accuracy. This is a profound update of a subject that writers such as William James alluded to in the early 1900s but that was widely misunderstood by the consciousness of that time.
