When the humble friar Juan de Yepes felt despair creeping into his heart after months of imprisonment, he cried out to God: ''Where have you hidden, my Beloved?'' Today, we can hear the answer to his plea in his transcendent poetry and prose, which stand as eternal testaments to Saint John's faith, insight, and courage in dark times. His uplifting masterpieces, such as ''The Spiritual Canticle'' and Dark Night of the Soul, are revered by spiritual masters of every tradition. In Saint John of the Cross, you are invited to enter into the mind and heart of one of contemplative Christianity's greatest visionaries. Through his writing and poetry, John of the Cross shares his wisdom for how we can abide in pure presence, which paths we can follow to bring clarity and peace to our souls, and how we can nurture a love that can transform even our most painful trials into an ecstatic communion with God. Saint John of the Cross was a Spanish mystic and Carmelite friar who played a major role in the Catholic Reformation. He was the protg of Saint Teresa of Avila, and he is honored as the patron saint of Spanish literature for his timeless writings on Christian mysticism.

Who is the Archangel Michael? Never unkind, but not always gentle, he embodies the essence of the "spiritual warrior"—courageous and strong in the face of injustice or illusion, a ceaseless devotee of truth. Saint Michael offers you the hand of this protective force through a collection of prayers, scripture, contemplations, and stories that span the ages and traditions in which this legendary figure has appeared. The name Michael means "who is like God." By invoking Michael's power, we invite into our own lives the divine energy to lift us past obstacles. Saint Michael gives you a devotional treasure for calling on this archangel for protection in times of danger, for strength in taking action for the greater good, for compassion in defense of the innocent, and for grace as we embark on the journey that awaits at the end of our lives.

Der wichtigste Grundlagentext spiritueller Weisheit Die knapp 200 Verse des Yogasutra von Patanjali beschreiben in unvergleichlicher Dichte, Logik und Präzision den Entwicklungsweg unseres Bewusstseins, den man Yoga nennt. Dabei meint Yoga Weg und Ziel zugleich: als Ziel steht es für den Zustand der Selbstverwirklichung oder Erleuchtung, als Weg bezeichnet es die vielfältigen Methoden, die dorthin führen. In vier Kapiteln erfahren wir, wie wir innere Freiheit erlangen, wie unsere tägliche, spirituelle Praxis aussehen kann, welche inneren Übungen – Konzentration und Meditation – die Transformation unseres Bewusstseins bewirken und wie wir schließlich lernen, all das wieder lozulassen, um wirklich frei zu werden. Undogmatisch und ohne moralisch-religiöse Vorschriften zeigt uns das Yogasutra den Weg zur Befreiung von den Fesseln des Ego-Bewusstseins.
