Some white South Africans have grown up with the sound of African singing accompanied by drumming in their ears at night. It stirred feelings of fear, of mystery, and fascination, but also of avoidance - "Leave it alone, it is not for us." They were told by their elders. And so they knew nothing about the aim, purpose and use of singing, dancing and drumming in the life of the native African - it was brushed aside as meer "beer parties." The white South African knew and understood even less about these as methods of healing and bringing comfort to body and mind. Yet for many the fascination remained, ad did the mystery. No cultural group can exist meaningfully without its living myths, rituals, and ceremonies. Moreover, in southern Africa the coexisting racial groups have a unique opportunity of being mutually enriched and fertilized by exploring, accepting and understanding on another's cultural beliefs and practices. This book aims at improving such understanding, and at building a bridge of empathy between "two worlds" the Western way of experiencing life, which is largely rational, intellectual and technological, and the world of the traditional Xhosa, which is primarily intuitive, non-rational and oriented towards symbols and images. The author writes about her research work among the indigenous Xhosa healers and sets out to show that much of what is commonly called "the witchdoctor's magic" is not magical in the usual sense of the word, but is intuitively based on sound principles of depth psychology widely practiced in the West. Living in Two Worlds is required reading for anyone interested in the social, political and psychological realities of southern Africa.

What guides us when our world is changing? Discover the path to deeper meaning and purpose through depth psychology and classical thought. How did we get to this crossroads in history? And will we make it through—individually and as a species? “We all assumed that learning, rationality, and good intentions would prove enough to bring us to the promised land,” says James Hollis. “But they haven’t and won’t. Yet what we also do not recognize sufficiently is that this human animal is equipped for survival. In time, as we have seen of life’s other insolubles, we grow large enough to contain what threatened to destroy us.” Dr. Hollis’s readers know him as a penetrating thinker who brings profound insight and sophistication to the inner journey. In Living Between Worlds, he broadens his lens to encompass the relationship between our inner struggles and the rapidly shifting realities of modern human existence. You will learn to invoke the tools of depth psychology, classical literature, philosophy, dream work, and myth to gain access to the resources that supported our ancestors through their darkest hours. Through these paths of inner exploration, you will access your “locus of knowing”—a wellspring of deep resilience beyond the ego, always available to guide you back to the imperatives of your soul. Though many of the challenges of our times are unique, the path through for us, personally and collectively, will always rely on our measureless capacity for creativity, wisdom, and connection to a reality larger than ourselves. Here you will find no easy answers or pat reassurances. Yet within the pages of Living Between Worlds, you will encounter causes for hope. “We can find what supports us when nothing supports us,” Hollis teaches. “By bearing the unbearable, we go through the desert to arrive at a nurturing oasis we did not know was there.”

Out of this World - the story of modern America's first century. Beginning with the shaky start at Jamestown in 1607, and ending with the cultural crisis of the Salem witch-trials in 1692, Malcolm Gaskill recreates the fascinating transatlantic story of the English plantations in north America. From Maine in the north right down to the Caribbean, the book charts the evolving attitudes to transatlantic adventures in England as the colonies grew in size,wealth and confidence, as well as the evolving attitudes to the mother country in the colonies themselves. It is a story teeming with people on the move, making decisions, indulging or resisting their desires anddreams - and one which has often been neglected or misunderstood on both sides of the Atlantic in the centuries since.

Living Life Between Two Worlds is a book that attempts to address, from a Christian perspective, the highly visible topic of transsexuality (regarding people who change their sex). This topic has permeated our society, affecting business, commerce, our military, our educational system, legal and moral viewpoints on human sexuality and marriage, bathroom usage policies, and beyond. Given its impact, how should Christians and the Church approach this issue? Living Life Between Two Worlds was written to bring God's truth about this subject into the light so that Christians can have a resource they can turn to for answers. It is also written to give hope to those that struggle with the problem, so they can know that there is freedom through God. It tells the unique story of the author, who because of life circumstances and experiences, lived with the turmoil and emotional pain of transsexuality for over 30 years. Not only that, but it testifies about the miraculous power of God, how God divinely visited the author and revealed the truth about transsexuality, and then how God powerfully brought the author out of bondage and into freedom and peace through that deliverance experience. However, Living Life Between Two Worlds does not stop there. It tells the truth about human sexuality and challenges the theories that support transsexuality. It presents scriptures telling God's opinion on the subject. It tells how a conflicted person can combat transsexuality. It discusses the spiritual aspect of transsexuality. It tells how the Church can approach the subject in love. In short, this book attempts to be a guide about this topic from God's viewpoint with the hope that the truth contained within its pages will touch and change the lives of those suffering from the conflict, just as it changed the author's life.

Now in his 83rd year, Richard Hoggart continues to stand for a set of values which represent liberalism and enlightenment at their best. Though affronted by the educational, cultural and social policies of the 1980s and 90s which flowed from the belief that 'there is no such things as society' and that market forces should reign untrammelled, he remains equally unimpressed by the those on the left who would reject the legitimacy of democratic politics, historic institutions and literary culture. The essays in this book all the issues which have preoccupied Hoggart over his long and varied career: the role of culture in society, the pleasures of literature and its relevance to our everyday lives, the importance of education, and the ways in which culture, literature and education all influence, and are in turn affected by, politics. Thus, he asks whether museums are inevitably political institutions? Whether we should defend the right top publish 'even hateful stuff? If social workers have gone so far in identifying with the interests of their 'clients' that they have forgotten that they are employed to serve the interests of society as a whole? He mounts a passionate defence of the

Examines the origins, efficacy, legacy, and consequences of envisioning both Native and non-Native “worlds.” Beyond Two Worlds brings together scholars of Native history and Native American studies to offer fresh insights into the methodological and conceptual significance of the “two-worlds framework.” They address the following questions: Where did the two-worlds framework originate? How has it changed over time? How does it continue to operate in today’s world? Most people recognize the language of binaries birthed by the two-worlds trope—savage and civilized, East and West, primitive and modern. For more than four centuries, this lexicon has served as a grammar for settler colonialism. While many scholars have chastised this type of terminology in recent years, the power behind these words persists. With imagination and a critical evaluation of how language, politics, economics, and culture all influence the expectations that we place on one another, the contributors to this volume rethink the two-worlds trope, adding considerably to our understanding of the past and present.

In this thought-provoking and sensitive book, a noted Jungian scholar explores the deepest elements in the American psyche that need healing to bring forth the best in both of the worlds we walk in: the highly differentiated and technologically developed Western civilization and the indigenous native "soul" that is the essence of each human being. The author demonstrates that this soul is forcefully represented in America in the experience of the Native American peoples and their relationship to the land and to the ancient "indigenous one" at the heart of our human rights. The author explores not only the best of Native American spiritual thought to rediscover that soul, but also the terrible psychic damage done to later settlers by five hundred years of violence against the original peoples. He sketches positive directions that will create a partnership between the two worlds of our past and bring them together in a "dance" that will encourage a more redemptive spiritual order
