Lucid dreaming is a practical handbook designed to show you how to create the world you want.

Covering: managing your dreams; keeping a dream journal; understanding and using symbolism and archetypes; dealing with illness or personal difficulty through precognitive dreams; and using dreams to change your day-to-day reality and create a positive, rewarding future.

Why are over 400 of the world's images of the Madonna 'black' or 'dark'? And why are they so little known?

The Cult of the Black Virgin investigates the pagan origins of the phenomenon as well as the heretical Gnostic-Christian underground stream which flowed West within the cult of Mary Magdalene and resurfaced in Catharism at the time of the Crusades.

A resurfacing of the powerful pagan goddesses of sexuality, the underworld and earth wisdom, the Black Virgins are symbols of power and majesty: the other aspect of the traditional Madonna's maidenhood or tender maternity.

Jean Shinoda,

A New Psychology of Women.

Just as women used to be unconscious of the powerful effects that cultural stereotypes had on them, they may also be unconscious of powerful forces within them that influence what they do and how they feel, and which account for major differences among women.

Psychoanalyst Jean Bolen believes that an understanding of these inner patterns and their interrelationships offers reassuring, true to life alternatives that take women far beyond such restrictive dichotomies as masculine/feminine, mother/lover, careerist/housewife.

And she demonstrates how understanding them can provide the key to self-knowledge and wholeness. Dr Bolen introduces these patterns in the guise of seven archetypal goddesses, or personality types, with whom all women will identify.

The Ordination Debate in the Church of England.

In November 1992, in one of the greates historic moments in Anglican Church history, the General Synod voted for the ordination of women into the priesthood.

When the result was announced people wept, sang and danced in the streets - 20 years of campaigning had finally paid off. Other sections of the clergy threatened to walk over to the Roman Catholic Church.

What are the issues that have split the church down the middle?

Will the Synod's decision really do anything to reverse Christianities historical bias against women?

Published to mark the first female ordination, this timely and important book analyses the theological and christian feminist debate that has wrecked the Anglican Church and distressed and elated so many of its members.

Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Women, Religion & Social Change.

  • What is the relation of religion to the kinds of struggles in which women are engaged around the world?
  • How does a woman's religion, ethics or cultural tradition affect or define the issues she addresses?

Until recently there has been a tendency for feminist debate to be dictated by 'western' ideas of what the issues are.

These papers, presented to an interreligious women's conference at Harvard in 1983, resulted from an attempt to allow women from all over the world to define the issues themselves.

The resulting topics are surprising and fascinating; moral fearlessness; witchcraft, conformity, success, militarism, water, apartheid, are just some of them.

With contributions from anthropologists, sociologists, theologians, economists and religious leaders, this is essential reading for anyone who shares the hopes for social and spiritual regeneration through the women's movement worldwide.

This panoramic view of Goddess imagery extends from the prehistoric Goddess representations of Catal Huyuk, Malta, Avebury, and Crete, to more patriarchal images of the Sumerians, Greeks, and Christians, to the wide range of contemporary artists inspired by the Goddess, including Frida Kahlo, Mayumi Oda, and Judy Chicago.

  Elizabeth B,

A Woman's Spiritual Adventure in the Heart of the Andes.

In 1989, Elizabeth Jenkins was working on a doctorate in clinical psychology. Although her life seemed full, she felt spiritually empty, and yearned for some deeer meaning.

Elizabeth'a extraordinary experiences began when she travelled to Peru to research into Andean healing practices. In Cuzco, gateway to the sacred mountains of Machu Pikchu, Elizabeth felt a strong spiritual calling and became the only Westerner to be admitted into a group of native Peruvians working with an Andean master. Later she was introduced to Juan Nunez del Prado, an initiated priest of the Andean Path.

With Juan as her guide, Elizabeth experienced the many different stages of initiation into one of the oldest sacred paths in the world. The mystical tradition of the Andean Path has been kept alive by the Q'eros, who have lived undisturbed in the high Andes for the last 500 years. These direct descendants of the Inkas taught Elizabeth the secrets of Andean shamanism and how to work with the energes of the natural world aroundher. They revealed ancient Inkan prophecies which have relevance to all our lives.

Myths of Woman's Sexual Energy. 

From primitive European and African carvings and cave drawings to the classical poetry, pottery, and sculpture of Attic Greece, from mysterious and disturbing female shapes on the facades of certain gothic Christian churches to startling and instructive examples of contemporary myths in the making.

Winifred Milius Lubell tracks a vast resource of visual and textual evidence in this first book-length study of Baubo.

Lubell's artistic and literary sources support the argument that from the earliest moments of civilization, humans have respected and revered female sexual energy, graphically symbolized in the vulva, as an indispensible force in the balance of nature.

Over the ages, the images of Baubo and her sisters assumed deviant and disturbing forms, but the basic lines of her legend and its visual manifestations were not completely obscured. Nor, as this book will show, has Baubo's essential power been destroyed even in our own age.

Inner Traditions

Jean,

Reverence of the Divine Feminine from the Paleolithic to the Present.

In ancient Babylon she was Anat, in Egypt, Isi and Hathor, Dana in Celtic Ireland, Rhea and Demeter in Greece, and in India, Anapurna the 'provider'.

She is the Great Goddess, the symbol of earth and the giver of life, the Vast Mother, who represented all the powers and mysteries of creation for our ancestors.

In this comprehensive exploration of the Goddess figure, Jean Markale, one of today's foremost Celtic histoians, examines how over time patriarchal societies tried to force the preeminent power of the feminine into an obscure and subservient position, shifting her solar association onto masculine deities and discrediting those of her symbols, like the serpent, that could not be easily assimilated.

With its extensive investigation of all myths, sites, and sanctuaries devoted to this influential figure, The Great Goddess provides us with abundant evidence of the extraordinary permenence of her worship - even at the heart of those religions that tried to destroy her.

Geobiology is the study of the Earth's influence, at a precise point, on everything that lives, be it human, animal or plant.

Blanche Merz is a geobiologist of international renown. After years of painstaking research and world-wide travel, she has made an astounding discovery. She has proof that the Earth is threaded with magnetic lines, which she likens to the meridian points of acupuncture.

The ancient people knew of these points and the author has tracked down many, using modern technology, that are ancient places of open-air worship, temples, cathedrals and tombs where corpses have remained intact, without mummification.

The author shows that the points still retain their vibratory intensity, and their powerful influence on people.

Jose & Nathaniel,

A Shamanic Way to Finding Your Personal Power.

Power spots are concentrations of natural energy. Inner power spots at the base of the spine, the solar plexus, and near the heart. Outer power spots correspond with specific natural features, such as streams, lakes, mountains and caves.

Working with power spots - learning to identify and use them creatively - helps us reclaim our lost connection with the natural world; but more than this, it leads to a state of emotional and mental clarity that enables us to deal more efficiently with life's practical issues - health, career, relationships and sex.

Lesley Irene,

Reclaiming Woman's Voice.

Many women, perhaps yourself included, are stuck in self-perpetuating cycles; they struggle with a host of symptoms that won't go away - including recurring physical pain, depression, eating disorders, or substance abuse.

These symptoms, it turns out, are really your personal messengers of healing. And the Only way you can move on to a higher quality of life for yourself is to listen to them and pay attention to what they are trying to say.

Healing the feminine chronicles the struggles and triumphs of a psychologist and her clients as they embrace the inner voices that ultimately become the source of their growth and healing.

Through a variety of techniques used by Dr Shore in her practice, you, too, can connect with your inner feminine and propel yourself on a life-altering journey of self-discovery, self-confidence, and self-love.

Women's Press

Monica,

The Goddess or the gurus? Towards a Feminist Vision of the Future.

Will our Earth survive through the millennium? Is it already so chocked, polluted and abused that we can look forward only to disaster in the so-called New Age? Or will it be able to renew and transform itself once more?

Monica Sjoo believes that it is time that we paid attention not only to the approaching Armageddon, but to the New Age prophets who promise a solution. For the New Age movement, she finds, despite its lip service to the 'healing' of Gaia, is essentially a patriarchal movement and thus part of the problem, and not the solution.

In this controversial and inspiring book, the author argues that nothing but a total rejection of the values of patriarchy can change us now. And she shows how New Age fixations on the pursuit of individual nirvana, and beliefs in 'creating our own reality' at the expense of communal values, are not merely apolitical. They may sabotage altogether our efforts to transform the future.

Celtic and Pagan legacy of the Landscape.

Britain and Ireland were no different, although the evidence for this celebration of the has often been obscured by later Christianity.

Now up-to-date archaeological research and current interpretation of folklore, myth and legend have made it possible to rediscover the original archetype earth-mother/goddess of these islands.

Micheline,

The Path to Self Development.

Using beautiful and precise symbolism, the tarot represnets life's journey. Each major card illustrates a critical stage on the path of human development.

The journey begins with the Fool, humanity's impulsive and immature nature. It ends with the Magician, who has transcended self-centredness and is skillful in all things. Along the way there are many steps. The Sun, the Tower, the Lovers, the Empress - each image is a link in the chain of being that must be fully experienced and understood.

The Tarot Path to Self Development shows how we can recognize the stages in the journey through life and thus awaken and transform our true selves.

The Women Uncommemorated by the Church of England.

In 1980 the Church of England chose for the first time to commemorate people who had lived during its own lifetime.

However, among the twenty British people chosen, only one woman was included - Josephine Butler - and then only after she had been rejected on the first vote. This extraordinary imbalance was explained as being the result of inadequate records having been kept of the lives of other women who might well have deserved commendation.

Compilation of the lives of a number of saintly British women from the 19th and 20th centuries who deserve to be included in the new church of England Service Book when it is prepared. Includes: Christina Rossetti, Caroline Chisholm, Florence Nightingale, Evelyn Underhill, Elizabeth Fry and Catherine Booth.

Catherine,

Women Deacons Speak Out.

'Like walking on glass' is how one woman describes the delicate and precarious path she treads as a deacon in the Church of England.

Her job is no less demanding than those of her male counterparts. Yet, like most women deacons, she also experiences further pressures, expected to 'know her place' and live with the fact that she is not allowed to develop her ministry in ways currently open only to men.

This book provides a powerful, often passionate, witness to what it means to be an ordained woman in the Church today.

Here are first-hand accounts of the excitement and disillusionment, the satisfaction, frustration, hope and disappointment, that women deacons encounter daily in the course of their work.

Here also is a glimpse of some of the ways in which Christian ministry may change when women are at last admitted to the priesthood.

Each chapter provides a historical overview with particular regard to women, followed by representative key texts about women.

These include creation stories, biographies of founders (in which women often play a prominent role), law codes, folklore, the 'texts' of tribal peoples, and works explicitly by women.

The genres vary from theological treatises to mystical poems to poems mourning the loss of a child or husband to matter-of-fact statements by tribal women.
