The seven sisters of the Pleiades are known throughout the world and appear again and again in stories from many cultures. Beginning with her grandmother's tale, Munya Andrews takes the reader to the stars, around and across the planet through Indigenous North America, Australia, Japan and the Pacific, and back through time to Ancient Egypt, India, Greece and South America. She explores the commonalities of legends to discover our common human origins. The Subaru from Japan share much with the young women depicted as birds in the stories from Greece and Indigenous Australia. The Pleiades have been the source of much mythology, wisdom and science over many millennia. The book is also an examination of culture and how culture is expressed through symbols and stories related to stars and other astronomical phenomena. Her work is distinguished from other studies in the field because she brings to it an Indigenous perspective which enriches its interpretative power. No other writer has captured the richness of this mysterious constellation.

Awakening, epiphany, transformation, enlightenment; such terms indicate a moment when a nascent consciousness erupts into the life of an individual. "A Mystic Awakening" gives witness to the rebirth of author J.M.E. Callidden and what it implies for mortality and beyond. To that end, he shares extraordinary experiences that have been kept close for many years-events that he calls mystical because they defy simple explanation. "A Mystic Awakening" is divided into two distinct parts; the first part explores the author's conscious arousal to mysticism and transformation as a person. To be clear, one ordinary night, everything changed for him and his life took remarkable trajectories into the paranormal. The second part presents his view of the bigger questions confronting us and includes his investigation into how things came to be in our world. "A Mystic Awakening" does not attempt to create an alternative science, although religion, the occult, and science are discussed in various parts of the narrative for the sake of comparison, reinforcement, and argument. To evoke creative storytelling at its best, the author has included the elements of both a detective story and an accidental spy saga, with a cast of characters that would truly be unbelievable were they not real people. Above all, "A Mystic Awakening" is about discovering a unique perspective based upon the author's personal experiences.

Shamanism can be defined as the practice of initiated shamans who are distinguished by their mastery of a range of altered states of consciousness. Shamanism arises from the actions the shaman takes in non-ordinary reality and the results of those actions in ordinary reality. It is not a religion, yet it demands spiritual discipline and personal sacrifice from the mature shaman who seeks the highest stages of mystical development.

A guide for personal exploration of the path to the divine feminine and the spiritual power of women. • Reveals the essential role of women in creating and maintaining the psychic/energetic/emotional landscape of society. • Explores feminine roles and the archetypal model of the Great Goddess from both Eastern and Western spiritual traditions. • Includes exercises, meditations, and visualizations drawn from ancient techniques to assist women with their spiritual awakening and self-realization. The Path of the Priestess takes readers on a journey deep into the heart of the feminine experience. It describes the author's years of first-hand experience in the ancient arts of Tantra, Dzogchen, and Indian and Egyptian temple dance and healing, as well as her research into the feminine principle in the mystic teachings of the Alchemists, Hebrew Kabbalists, and Christian Gnostics. Beginning with an analysis of the basic issues and frustrations inherent in contemporary society's conditioning of and expectations for women, readers travel back in time to the age of the great temples, schools, and sacred societies in which women still held and transmitted the spiritual light that nourished all of civilization. Through its mythic and historic tales, descriptions of sacred ritual practices, and teachings on the Goddess traditions, The Path of the Priestess provides contemporary women with the means to enter this time-honored path. In keeping with the experientially based teaching methods of these traditions, it also offers exercises and visualizations designed to align women with the powerful, sensuous, and loving energies of the most profound feminine role model that shaped and preserved culture and society--the Great Goddess.
