The Cloud of Unknowing
cover image of The Cloud of Unknowing, The Classic of Medieval Mysticism, for sale in New Zealand

The Classic of Medieval Mysticism.
An exploration of the nature of reality, mysticism begins with the individual struggle toward a clear vision and culminates in a transformed consciousness.
This marvelous guide to the contemplative life originated with the reflection of an unknown fourteenth-century priest who believed that a "cloud of unknowing" separates people from God.
This cloud, he maintained, cannot be penetrated by intellect; only by love.
The Cloud of Unknowing offers an approach to contemplative life that finds holiness at a level deeper than physical experience and beyond language or image.
The author advise to place all thought and mental imagery behind a metaphorical "cloud of forgetting" while seeking to love the divine. through monologistic prayer, a single-word prayer, like a mantra, that assists in abandoning all extraneous thought.
Seekers can thus attain an inner silence, where they may "be still and know the sacred."
Written in everyday language and edited by a popular authority on mysticism, this can be understood and appreciated by any reader.

Offering from the Conscious Body; The Discipline of Authentic Movement
cover image of Offering from the Conscious Body; The Discipline of Authentic Movement, for sale in New Zealand

This exploration of the direct experience of healing and of the divine through the witnessing of movement becoming conscious, based on the author's 35 years experience, uses sample sessions and descriptive theory to explain the discipline.
Explains the theory and practice of a unique body-based process that is cathartic, creative, healing, and mystical.
This Western awareness practice encourages the individual to experience the evolving relationship with oneself, another, the collective, and the divine through the natural impulses of conscious movement, compassionate witnessing, and clear articulation of experience.
Adler demonstrates that physical movement can invite direct experience of spiritual truths.
Designed for professionals and lay-persons interested in psychology, bodywork, mystic traditions, or personal transformation, the discipline of Authentic Movement is at the cutting edge of emerging Western healing practices.

When a young man, Dan expected that hard work would eventually bring a life of comfort, wisdom, and happiness.
Despite his many successes, he felt that something was missing.
Awakened by dark dreams one night, Dan found himself at a gas station with an old man named Socrates, and his world was changed forever. Guided by this eccentric old warrior, and inspired by a young woman named Joy, Dan began a spiritual odyssey into realms of light and shadow, romance and mystery, toward a final confrontation that would deliver or destroy him.

The Reverend Robert Stapleton (1866-1945) and Doctor Ida Stapleton (1871-1946) were American missionaries in Erzerum in the late Ottoman Empire and the years leading to the rise of modern Turkey.
With other in the missionary community they sought to help Ottoman Armenians, using the influence of New England Protestantism along with Western education and culture.
They witnessed the deportation of the city's Armenian population and the great battle for Erzurum between Turkish and Russian forces during World War I.
After the establishment of modern Turkey they returned to America to continue their charitable work among another disadvantaged group, the Appalachian poor in the Kentucky mountains during the Great Depression of the 1930s.
Using the Stapletons private papers, as well as other primary and secondary sources, Rasch draws a picture of the missionaries everyday lives and struggles.
