Some of our recently-released titles:
• The first history of the Western chakra system (a term that has not been used before)
Scores of books have been written on the chakras—psychoenergetic centers distributed along the spine, perceived clairvoyantly as wheels of light. Based on the teachings of Indian Tantra, the chakras have been used for centuries as focal points for healing, meditation, and achieving a gamut of physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits, from improved health to ultimate enlightenment
Exploring the Financial Universe
• A view of the correlation between planetary cycles and financial markets
The role of the Sun, planets and stars and their influence on global markets is intriguing to traders and investors alike. Christeen Skinner’s research shows very definite links between major stock market movements and the position of the planets. This book will be of interest to those with little understanding of astrology as well as to those well-versed in the subject. The work includes charts, graphs and horoscopes and explanation of some of the techniques used for astro-financial forecasting.
The author presents case studies in business astrology and an explanation of some astro-finance trading techniques.
Shakespeare and the Stars
To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, this book offers fresh and exciting insights into the ever-popular works of the world’s greatest playwright. It specifically highlights Shakespeare’s use of the archetypal language of astrological symbolism in both obvious and subtle ways. The deeper significance of such references is often lost to modern-day playgoers and readers.
The author demonstrates that many of Shakespeare’s plays are entirely keyed to a specific zodiacal sign and its associated (or ruling) planet. Shakespeare’s audience would have grasped their significance in revealing character, foreshadowing plot, and establishing key themes for each play. The first half of the book provides the necessary background for understanding the plays by describing the synthesis of both classical and Christian ideas at the time. The seven planets were considered an integral part of the cosmos—instrumental in shaping human character. The Elizabethan worldview also explains the use of music, images, and symbols in the plays. .
The Sworn Book of Honorius
• One of the oldest and most influential texts on medieval magic (dating to the fourteenth-century)
Managing the Mind
• The Yogasutra of Patanjali is described as an owner’s manual for the human mind and how the mind can be used in the quest for Truth
The famed Yogasutra of Patanjali has stood the test of time. It is the most famous and important instructions in the field, at the very least, some 2,000-year-old and likely even older. Patanjali compiled a systematic and comprehensive manual on the science and art of meditation in a series of sentences that reach to the very heart of the spiritual life. A spiritual tool for the lay practitioner, while offering a path to deeper scholarship.
