Lynn V. Andrews takes the reader with her as she goes on inward journeys with the help of the Sisterhood of the Shields, and relates the stories of others. Join her as she is initiated into the Sisterhood and creates her own shield, which will show her the nature of her spiritual path (Spirit Woman). Follow her to the Yucatan, where the medicine wheel leads her, and she is faced with the terrifying reality of the butterfly tree (Jaguar Woman). Enter the Dreamtime with her, where she emerges in medieval England as Catherine, and encounters the Grandmother, who offers to show Andrews how to make her life one of goodness, power, adventure, and love (The Woman of Wyrrd). Not all these stories describe the author's own spiritual experiences. Meet Sin Coraz?n, an initiate into the Sisterhood, whose husband abandons her. She nearly succumbs to her inner dark power and unleashes her rage on men and the Sisterhood (Dark Sister). Andrews also writes about the elder women of the Sisterhood: their loves, their lives, their losses (Tree of Dreams). Andrews shows us how to channel our own spiritual and intellectual energy and balance the need for love with the desire for power (Love and Power). She takes the reader on numerous spiritual journeys that inevitably uplift.

Contemporary thought has been profoundly shaped by the early-twentieth-century turn toward synchronic models of explanation, which analyze phenomena as they appear at a single moment, rather than diachronically as they develop through time. But the relationship between time and system remains unexplained by the standard account of this shift. Through a new history of systematic thinking across the humanities and sciences, The Writing of Spirit argues that nineteenth-century historicism wasn’t simply replaced by a more modern synchronic perspective. The structuralist revolution consisted rather in a turn toward time’s absolutely minimal conditions, and thus also toward a new theory of diachrony. Pourciau arrives at this surprising and powerful conclusion through an analysis of language-scientific theories over the course of two centuries, associated with thinkers from Jacob Grimm and Richard Wagner to the Russian Futurists, in domains as disparate as historical linguistics, phonology, acoustics, opera theory, philosophy, poetics, and psychology. The result is a novel contribution to a pressing contemporary question—namely, what role history should play in the interpretation of the present.

"The pen is mightier than the sword." and, "What the world needs is... not just more preachers, but... consecrated pens." Christians have been changing the world with their words and their pens for centuries. But, not everyone is a skilled writer.

Writing with Spirit is written for writers of all levels and specifically written with Canadian Christians in mind. So, whether you are a student who needs help writing essays, or are someone who feels God is calling you to share your heart with our world, here's a book to help you do that. "It's finally been written! Lois Sweet has given us the "bible" for Christian writers. No writer or aspiring writer can any longer say they weren't told. Lois Sweet in Writing with Spirit: A Journalistic Guide to Effective Writing not only covers the essentials of good writing but provides concrete examples. This book is not only for journalists and writers but will greatly serve college and seminary students, enabling them to see better how to construct papers and exams." -Brian C Stiller, President Tyndale College-University "Not only well written and thorough, but also acutely necessary. The intellectual high ground has to be challenged by Christian people, and that involves a new, intelligent and far more profound approach to literacy and literature. Here is the resource to help do that." -Michael Coren, Author, Journalist, Radio/TV Host

With more than 184 Christian writer's groups and 155 conferences, thousands of writers are looking for encouragement and insight. Yet, every Christian who writes faces the same issue: finding daily inspiration and creativity. Designed to be both encouraging and practical, "Writers in the Spirit" guides writers from the novice stage to becoming dedicated authors, something that Carol Rottman achieved when she put aside all other "paying work" to write full time. Included in these pages are insight and practical tips on such topics as: Writing Realism: "Take yet another scroll, and write on it all the former words that were on the first scroll ..." (Jeremiah 36:27). Popular media have romanticized writers' lives to be devoted entirely to making beautiful stories. Writers in the Spirit explains the practical issues that writers face and shows how it is possible to overcome dry spells, endless revisions and even self-doubt. Writing with Fervor: Much of the Apostle Paul's writing was done in prison. Paul's passion to win people to Christ overcame any obstacle. While many new writers feel restrained, Writers in the Spirit shows how to find the passion that fuels the writing process. Writing in the Spirit: "This is what we speak, not words taught by human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit ..." (1 Corinthians 2:13). Rottman shows that a personal relationship with God is the best source of inspiration. Mediating on God's word will yield creativity from the Creator. "Many of us are called as witnesses to the life-experiences God has entrusted to us. If your witness takes the form of the written word, this book will go with you as a trusted companion traveling the same path." - Former President Jimmy CarterAuthor, Statesman, and Thirty-ninth President of the United States "'Writers in the Spirit' helps connect me to God while reminding me that writing is a gift from Him and a calling to be both treasured and nurtured."- Sally Stuart, Editor, Christian Writers' Market Guide

The fascinating history of Spiritualism is coaxed into the material realm as the object of this perceptive and sweeping overview by that legendary author of the occult and supernatural, Raymond Buckland. Containing more than 500 entries and 100 illustrations, The Spirit Book is the comprehensive encyclopedia to Spiritualism and its related subjects. Plus it provides full biographies of every prominent person connected to the field. Drawing on decades of research, writing, and transcendence, Buckland describes sundry methods of channeling, events associated with Spiritualism, including séances and exorcism, organizations focused on clairvoyance, and a colorful host of mortals—famous and infamous—who delved into Spiritualism. Nostradamus, Helena Blavatsky, and Edgar Cayce receive their due, as well as Joan of Arc, William Blake, Susan B. Anthony, Winston Churchill, Arthur Conan Doyle, Mahatma Gandhi, Harry Houdini, and Mae West (look up and see her sometime). It explores Qabbalah, Sibyls, Fairies, Poltergeists; phenomena such as intuition and karma; objects useful in the attempt to cross the divide, including tarot cards, flower reading, and runes; and related practices such as Shamanism, transfiguration, meditation, and mesmerism.

The Spiritual Geography Of Modern Writing

This collection of essays deals with the spiritual crisis in modern society and focusses in particular on European writers of the 19th and 20th centuries. The essays trace themes of spiritual unease, narrowing of inner human space, impoverishment of the self, growing human isolation, dehumanization, and the writers' attempts to overcome this malaise. The essays also try to show how inhuman political and social environments and feelings of cultural impasse can become mitigated and reclaimed by socially conscious acts of creative writing. Obsession, self-delusion, creative frustration and personal tragedy are seen to haunt this kind of modern writing which is at the same time infused with the writers' profound sense of moral responsibility to society and marked, on occasion, by that rare experience of Epiphany and transcendence.

There's a constant hunger in the world for books that explore the spiritual aspects of life, but writing about spirituality is far more complex than simply sharing personal reflections about God and the life of faith. Editors and publishers who specialize in spiritual writing find that what is important to work out for yourself on paper may not always be the best way to connect to readers.

This slim volume is loaded with writing tips, advice, and exercises to help the writer hone and craft his or her personal thoughts into an engaging, inspiriing, and publishable piece. Readers will learn such things as why authenticity matters, how to find their authentic voice, and how to engineer their creativitiy so that it resonates with readers. The Art of Spiritual Writing demonstrates that by taking the time to learn and implement the process and craft of writing, we can begin to uncover new ways to ocnnect with ourselves, our readers, and God. And as we grow in our writing ability, our spirituality blossoms as well.

Excess In Modern Irish Writing

This book examines the topic of excess in modern Irish writing in terms of mysticism, materialism, myth and language. The study engages ideas of excess as they appear in works by major thinkers from Hegel, Kierkegaard and Marx through to Nietzsche, Bataille, Derrida and, more recently, Badiou. Poems, plays and fiction by a wide range of Irish authors are considered. These include works by Oscar Wilde, W. B. Yeats, G. B. Shaw, Patrick Pearse, James Joyce, Sean O’Casey, Louis MacNeice, Samuel Beckett, Elizabeth Bowen, Roddy Doyle, Seamus Heaney, Marina Carr and Medbh McGuckian. The readings presented illustrate how Matthew Arnold’s nineteenth-century idea of the excessive character of the Celt is itself exceeded within the modernity of twentieth-century Irish writing.

Using writing to deepen your connection with the Universe. The Ritual of Writing explores the connection between writing and ritual in Pagan spirituality. Focusing upon practical tasks, it begins by helping readers create a piece of writing connected to the Wheel of the Year and honouring a seasonal festival, taking them step by step through the process. There is a key element of working with the spirit of place, wherever the reader is in the world. The book also considers other ways in which writing can inform spiritual practice, discussing elements such as poetry, non-fiction and ritual work. Practical throughout, with developmental tasks at each stage, The Ritual of Writing helps the reader build skill and confidence and to find their own writing voice. 'What a fantastic idea to connect writing with the magic of place, seasonal celebration, and the art of ritual. As I read through The Ritual of Writing, I found my desire to write reignited.' Philip Carr-Gomm, OBOD
