"Bev helped me to have almost three more years with my beloved dog Charlie. He had cancer and the vets wanted me to put him down. To the vets' surprise his cancer seemed to dissappear. They could not explain it medically." Gera-Lind Kolarik Chicago, Illinois "Beverly's work is particularly powerful because she brings both an encyclopedic knowledge of healing and extraordinary wisdom to the process. " Audrey Silver " ... Not only have I experienced vastly improved health, but her work and teachings have helped me to vastly improved relationships with my wife, son, and parents. She also was able to help me in business at a crucial time." Henry Levin "Deep healing is but one gift that Beverly imparts. There are others that I can only begin to name now, for the tools that one learns in working with Beverly are applicable for a lifetime." Vicki Landes Licensed Clinical Social Worker Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner "Her capabilities, knowledge, traditional teachings and constant contact with the spiritual world is amazing. On every level and all realms Beverly is a true inspiration." Janet Devich Reiki Practitioner Owner of DIGS Agility Training Facility Joliet, IL "I have had the privilege to have witnessed many 'miraculous' healings by Beverly Chapman.

Although much has been written on the Afro-Catholic syncretic religions of Vodou, Candomble, and Santeria, the Spiritual Baptists--an Afro-Caribbean religion based on Protestant Christianity--have received little attention. This work offers the first detailed examination of the Spiritual Baptists or "Converted". Based on 18 months of fieldwork on the Island of St. Vincent (where the religion arose) and among Vincentian immigrants in Brooklyn, Zane's analysis makes a contribution to the literature on African-American and African Diaspora religion and the anthropology of religion more generally.

This book is intended to be read by everyone; the primary objective of the Spiritual Journeys Program is to provide a very practical and proven methodology for trained Hypnotherapists to significantly accelerate the spiritual development of their clients, and to then guide their clients to vividly experience and explore in detail their own personal spiritual and soul-level experiences. A secondary objective is to provide specific real-world examples of the type of spiritual information you can learn about yourself as a client if you decide to begin your own Spiritual Journeys sessions. This book provides a general description of the steps to be taken in providing each Journey to each client, as well as extracts from actual sessions from my own clients and students; however, it does not supply a complete step-by-step script for guiding them through that Journey. It provides a suggested process of what the Hypnotist should do and many clear examples of what you will learn as a client, but it does not provide the specific details of how to provide a Spiritual Journeys session to others. It is not a "do-it-yourself program" for those not trained in hypnotic techniques. The Spiritual Journeys Program always begins with three Journeys foundational and necessary individual session that will support the processes of all subsequent Journeys. In these three initial sessions, you will learn to establish a conscious two-way conversational dialog with your own Higher Self and with your personal Spirit Guide. Once this basic foundation has been established, you are well-prepared to begin safely exploring the higher dimensional spiritual realms in one or more of three optional paths of investigation. Journeys 4-6 focus on stepping into your own Mastery as an adept Spiritual Healing Facilitator by enlisting the active assistance of the Angelic Kingdom, Journeys 7-10 focus on exploring your own previous experiences as a purely spiritual consciousness, and Journeys 11-16 focus on researching and learning about nearly any topic you wish to know more about by gaining access to and 'reading' the Universal Akashic Records. You may find that this book ignites a deep curiosity and yearning to learn more about your own true spiritual nature. If so, and you are a Certified Hypnotherapist, this book will provide an excellent overview of the objectives and general procedures for providing each Spiritual Journeys session to your clients. Details of how to become a Spiritual Journeys Practitioner are on my website; go to www.howardbatie.com and view the Spiritual Journeys page. If you are not a Hypnotherapist, take this entire book to a properly trained Certified Hypnotherapist and ask them to become a Spiritual Journeys Practitioners so they can guide you into your own conscious knowledge of who and what you are as a spiritual being. I invite the reader to seek out the nearest trained Spiritual Journeys Practitioner and begin your own Spiritual Journeys!

Is God a delusion? Are science and Christian faith incompatible? Ten scientists tell their stories. There is a popular myth at large in both modern society and in many churches. According to this myth, science and Christianity have been engaged in a long battle over the centuries. For many secularists this means that we must embrace science and reject religion, whilst for some Christians it means the exact opposite. But are science and Christian faith really in conflict? In this book ten respected scientists share their life stories and their reflections on science and faith. What led them to become scientists? Why did they embrace Christianity? And how do they relate their religious beliefs to the science that they do in the lab? The stories that they tell help us to see that when it comes to answering some of "life's big questions" we do well to listen for the insights from both science and faith.

Mind And Body In Early China

Mind and Body in Early China critiques Orientalist accounts of early China as the radical, "holistic" other. The idea that the early Chinese held the "strong" holist view, seeing no qualitative difference between mind and body, has long been contradicted by traditional archeological and qualitative textual evidence. New digital humanities methods, along with basic knowledge about human cognition, now make this position untenable. A large body of empirical evidence suggests that "weak" mind-body dualism is a psychological universal, and that human sociality would be fundamentally impossible without it. Edward Slingerland argues that the humanities need to move beyond social constructivist views of culture, and embrace instead a view of human cognition and culture that integrates the sciences and the humanities. Our interpretation of texts and artifacts from the past and from other cultures should be constrained by what we know about the species-specific, embodied commonalities shared by all humans. This book also attempts to broaden the scope of humanistic methodologies by employing team-based qualitative coding and computer-aided "distant reading" of texts, while also drawing upon our current best understanding of human cognition to transform our basic starting point. It has implications for anyone interested in comparative religion, early China, cultural studies, digital humanities, or science-humanities integration.

“The Odyssey Experience puts forward the view that a journey, as encapsulated by the journey of Odysseus, provides a fundamental and archetypal human experience and develops a theory of this experience through personal experiences and a wide range of salient phenomena. There is a vast literature inspired by The Odyssey, but the way that Smelser approaches the subject is entirely unique.”—Yiannis Gabriel, University of London “Smelser draws together studies of an astonishing range of diverse topics and subsumes them under a single coherent, powerful, overarching concept—the odyssey experience. I believe his book will lead to the establishment of an entirely new field of study in the social and behavioral sciences, that will open up new and promising lines of theory and research that until now have not been possible.”—Robert Scott, Associate Director (emeritus), Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences

A “what to expect” guide for first-time ayahuasca users paired with accounts from the author’s extensive shamanic experiences in the Amazon • Describes how to prepare for the first ceremony, what to do in the days afterward, and how to maintain a shamanic healing diet • Details some of the author’s own ayahuasca experiences, including an intensive trip in 2009 when he underwent 17 ceremonies • Explores the many other plants that are part of the ayahuasca healer’s medicine cabinet as well as the icaros, healing songs, of the ayahuasca shaman Since 1999 Jan Kounen has regularly traveled to the Peruvian Amazon to participate in ayahuasca ceremonies. At first only a curious filmmaker, over multiple trips he transformed from explorer to apprentice to ayahuasquero and often found himself surrounded by other foreigners coming to the jungle for their first taste of ayahuasca medicine. Knowing how little guidance is available on how to prepare or what to expect, he naturally offered them advice. Part visionary ayahuasca memoir and part practical guide, this book contains the same step-by-step advice that Kounen provides first-time ayahuasca users in the jungle. He describes how to prepare for the first ceremony and what to do in the days afterward. He explores how to deal with the nausea and details the special preparatory diets an ayahuasca shaman will put you on, often lasting for months but necessary for life-transforming results and teachings from the plant spirits. He also explains how it is far easier to maintain these restrictions in the jungle than in the city. Detailing his own ayahuasca experiences over hundreds of sessions, including a trip in 2009 when he underwent 17 ceremonies in 25 days, Kounen describes how ayahuasca transformed him. He tells of his meetings with Shipibo healers, including Kestenbetsa, who opened the doors of this world for him, and Panshin Beka, the shaman to whom Kounen became an apprentice. He details the many other plants and foods that are part of the ayahuasca healer’s medicine cabinet, such as toé and tobacco, as well as their icaros, or healing songs. A veritable “what to expect” guide, this book should be your first step prior to committing to ayahuasca.

Fizer takes the reader on an intuitive Journey of Spirit, as well as the Possibilities of "What Could Be " Mysteries of Wisdom which lie dormant under years of "religious ideologies, cultural perspectives, and opinion." This literary work takes on a more "Cosmic and Meta-Physical approach to Spirituality, Identity, and the Creative Unction that many possess, but may not understand. It is sure to expand the thinking of those who already prescribe to certain aspects of Spirituality, seeing that Fizer goes beyond the borders of what many perceive as "The Norm." Yet, it serves as a scientific or Universal bridge, to a unique perspective of God, Spirituality, Possibilities, and Miracles..
