In Nature, Culture, and the Sacred, Bioneers co-founder Nina Simons offers inspiration for anyone who aspires to grow into their own unique form of leadership with resilience and joy. Drawing on her extensive experience with women's leadership development, Simons aims to replace the old patriarchal, hierarchical paradigm with a more feminine-inflected style of leadership, informed by age-old indigenous cultures, that illustrates the interconnected nature of the issues and challenges we face today. Simons shares moving stories of women around the world joining together to reconnect people, nature and the land, both practically and spiritually. Nature, Culture and the Sacred: A Woman Listens for Leadership is necessary reading for anyone who wants to learn and be inspired by the strong women who are leading the way towards transformational change through the cultivation of vibrant movements for social and environmental justice.

Transpersonal Ecosophy, Vol. 1: Theory, Methods and Clinical Assessments

The image on the cover of this book represents the idea that brain state alterations at sacred sites allow us to re-experience memories that are woven into the morphogenetic fields of that place, an idea that originates with Paul Devereux's empirical enquiry into dreams at sacred sites in Wales and England. This books examines how this investigation provides us with a new way of understanding consciousness, and a new direction toward a reconciliation of the divorce between matter and spirit. We explore the work of David Lukoff, and Stanislav and Christina Grof, the connections between the varieties of transformative experience in dream studies, ecopsychology, transpesonal psychology, and the anthropology of consciousness, as well as the overlap between David Bohm's interpretation of quantum theory and Rupert Sheldrake's hypothesis of formative causation.

In a world where religious pluralism is a necessity of modern life, diverse religions exist for the diverse people populating the earth. Theologically, how do people of different faiths find liberation in their separate gods simultaneously? Stephen Kaplan answers this question with his new book, Different Paths, Different Summits. He presents a model for religous pluralism that does not fall victim to the criticisms of pluralist models.

The Emancipation of Thought and the Modern World

Sloan argues that a fundamental transformation of our ideas about knowing, our selves, and our world is not only possible, but necessary. The key to this transformation lies in an understanding of insight-imagination--the involvement of the thinking, feeling, willing, valuing person in knowing. The possibility and mode of effecting this transformation is the subject of Insight-Imagination. Sloan examines alternative and potentially more constructive intellectual approaches as developed in the radical humanities and the world's great religious traditions. The author explores the role of education in the transformation of consciousness and the effect of this transformation on education.

The forces and processes which determine shape and form in plants and fungi have fascinated botanists and mycologyists for centuries. Shape may be regarded as the external contour of an organism, while form describes the three-dimensional arrangement of the component parts. These are distinct yet interdependent concepts, and both are a consequence of development. The forces and processes which determine shape and form in plants and fungi have fascinated botanists and mycologists for centuries: theories abound, yet real understanding remains elusive. The authors in this volume address these matters from a wide variety of different standpoints. The contributions are not an attempt to cover the entire field, but rather a collection likely to stimulate new thought and intellectual excitement. The strength of the volume lies in its diversity of approach and philosophy. Some important themes arise: the creative tension between the holistic and reductionist approaches to analysis of shape and form, the paucity of information on the internal messages and forces which link genome and phenotype, and the potential of research with unicellular plants and with fungi, where the relative simplici
