"Call her Our Lady, La Nuestra Señora, Holy Mother—or one of her thousands of other names," says Dr. Estés. "She wears hundreds of costumes, dozens of skin tones, is patroness of deserts, mountains, stars and oceans. Thus she comes to us in billions of images, but at her centre, she is the Great Immaculate Heart." With Untie the Strong Woman, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés invites us to reconnect with "the fierce and loving Blessed Mother who is friendly, but never tame—she who flies to our aid when the road is long and our hearts are broken, ever ready to rekindle the inner fire of our creative souls." In her first book in more than a decade, Dr. Estés illuminates Our Lady through blessings, images, and narrative, including: • Stories of connecting with the Blessed Mother, including "Meeting the Lady in Red", and "Untie the Strong Woman" • Blessed Mother's many images from around the world, including "Litany of The Mother Road: A Chant of Her Incandescent Names"; "A Man Named Mary"; and "The Marys of Mother Africa" • The wild side of her love, including "Massacre of the Dreamers: The Maiz Mother"; "Holy Card of Swords Through the Heart"; and "Guadalupe is a Girl Gang Leader in Heaven" "The Blessed Mother is often 'Friend to the friendless one' and Mother to all—yet too many of us have been estranged from her for far too long." Untie the Strong Woman opens a channel to this sacred and nurturing force—"breaking through walls that have held us back from her presence, and instead, inviting us to shelter under her starry green mantle".

Die Inkas, eine der größten Zivilisationen des amerikanischen Kontinents, waren nicht nur berühmte Städtebauer, sondern besaßen auch ein außergewöhnliches Medizinsystem. Ihre Schamanen entwickelten vor mehr als 5000 Jahren eine Technik, Krankheiten mit Geist und Licht zu heilen. Alberto Villoldo studierte 25 Jahre lang die heilende Macht dieser energiemedizinischen Tradition. Aufbauend auf dem alten Heilsweg, stellte er ein praktikables Programm zusammen, das es ermöglicht, sich selbst und andere zu heilen und Krankheiten zu vermeiden. Kernstück seines Konzepts sind die lichtvollen Energiefelder, die den materiellen Körper umgeben und sich im Krankheitsfall verändern. Schritt für Schritt macht Villoldo den Leser mit den Techniken vertraut, die Aura zu sehen und das Energiefeld zu harmonisieren.

Big Topics at Midnight: A Texas Girl Wakes Up to Race, Class, Gender and Herself defies easy categorization. It's memoir and history and a celebration of the power of faith and myth and magic. It’s personal, and it’s about social change. Through the lenses of race, class, gender and spirituality, Nancy Thurston excavates history—personal, familial, global—for the sake of cross-generational healing and transformation. Big Topics at Midnight is one woman’s story—a Texas-born girl with an insatiable desire for awareness and an irresistible call from Spirit. On her journey, Nancy woke up to systemic abuses of money and power. She woke up to racism, classism and sexism. She woke up to herself. But that’s not all. Nancy woke up to herself as part of a much greater fabric, one that included the voices of her ancestors, the hopes of her descendants, the messy and miraculous humanity of her contemporaries and personal and global history she didn’t want to know but couldn’t ignore. Consequently, Nancy’s story belongs to all of us. Midnight is a dark time, a time when we’d like to be sleeping, but we can’t if we’re troubled and awakened by issues that won’t let us close our eyes. Now is a midnight time. Big Topics at Midnight holds the hope that the same diversity that has separated us can provide the variety of tools, perspectives and experiences we need to navigate this moment in history, together. Nancy’s hope is that her story will spark you to remember your story and to know yourself as part of a greater whole. We need each other. Future generations need us all.

Fleshing the Spirit brings together established and new writers exploring the relationships between the physical body, the spirit and spirituality, and social justice activism. Examining the complex and dynamic connections among these concepts, the writers emphasize the value of “flesh and blood experience” as a site of knowledge. They argue that spirituality—something quite different from institutional religious practice—can heal the mind/body split and set the stage for social change. Spirituality, they argue, is a necessary component of an alternative political agenda focused on equitable social and ecological change. The anthology incorporates different genres of writing—such as poetry, testimonials, critical essays, and historical analysis—and stimulates the reader to engage spirituality in a critical, personal, and creative way. This interdisciplinary work is the first that attempts to theorize the radical interconnection between women of color, spirituality, and social activism. Before transformative political work can be done, the authors say in multiple ways, we must recognize that our spiritual need is a desire to more fully understand our relations with others. Conflict experienced on many levels sometimes severs those relations, separating us from others along racial, class, gender, sexual, national, or other socially constructed lines. Fleshing the Spirit offers a spiritual journey of healing, health, and human revolution. The book’s open invitation to engage in critical dialogue and social activism—with the spirit and spirituality at the forefront—illuminates the way to social change and the ability to live in harmony with life’s universal energies.

Playfulness has the power to reconnect us with our sense of self, and help us achieve growth and self-fulfilment. The author of this wide-ranging book explores the universal significance of play in the pursuit of happiness and authenticity. Providing a brief overview of the role of play in social, spiritual and intellectual endeavours throughout history, she discusses the harmful consequences of taking things too seriously, and reveals playfulness as a necessity for both the psyche and soul. Informed by the Core Process psychotherapy model, Buddhist philosophy and personal testimonies, the book illustrates how the lighter side of life enables us to re-examine the makeup of our identity and recover from negative experiences. Much more than an insight into the therapeutic properties of play, it is an eloquent ode to the importance of simply enjoying ourselves.
