Mushroom Wisdom: How Shamans Cultivate Spiritual Consciousness
by Martin W. Ball
A guide to shamanic techniques for cultivating practical spirituality. In indigenous contexts, sacred plants are understood to have the power to teach essential knowledge and to bring seekers to states of divine consciousness. Mushroom space is a divine space. A space of spirit, mind, and meaning. A space of beauty and wonder. Anyone can eat mushrooms and experience the profound mind-manifesting powers of the sacred plant, but actually using them with intent and purpose for spiritual development requires certain techniques. When using mushrooms as spiritual tools, they become plant teachers. Seekers only need learn to listen to how they communicate and how they impart their lessons. A few illustrations (b&w).

The Way of the Bodhisattva: A Translation of the Bodhicharyavatara
by Shantideva, the Padmakara Translation Group (Translator), the Dalai Lama, Padmakara Translation Group (Translator), Dalai Lama
One of the many Buddhist masters who have written profoundly and with clarity about the wellsprings of the Buddhist traditions is Shantideva, a seventh-century Buddhist scholar who taught at Nalanda, one of the great monastic universities of ancient India. Shantideva's Bodhicharyavatara, one of the foundational texts of Tibetan Buddhism, deeply influenced the Dalai Lama, who once remarked that his own understanding of the bodhisattva path is based entirely upon Shantideva's text.

Good Life, Good Death
by Gelek Rimpoche
Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? How do we get there? Gelek Rimpoche, one of the last reincarnated lamas to be educated in Tibet, examines these universal questions with a combination of ancient tradition and contemporary thought-revealing an empowering connection between what we believe and how we live our lives. He offers a bigger picture of life after life, with meditations for facing the dying process, overcoming negative emotions and cultivating compassion.
Gelek Rimpoche was born into one of the last great aristocratic families of Tibet. He began his formal training to become a teacher when he was three years old. He left Tibet at 19 during the Communist Chinese invasion and at his teachers' insistence, began instructing Westerners in Buddhism. Rimpoche is one of the last reincarnated lamas to be fully educated in Tibet and trained by the same teachers who taught the Dalai Lama. He has been a favorite speaker at countless spiritual centers around the country. Rimpoche has been a research consultant at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio, and an instructor of Tibetan at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Rimpoche is now an American citizen and lectures around the world.

Bhagavad Gita: A New Translation
by Stephen Mitchell
The Bhagavad Gita is universally acknowledged as one of the world's literary and spiritual masterpieces. It is the core text of the Hindu tradition and has been treasured by American writers from Emerson and Thoreau to T. S. Eliot, who called it the greatest philosophical poem after the Divine Comedy. There have been more than two hundred English translations of the Gita, including many competent literal versions, but not one of them is a superlative literary text in its own right.

The Essential Zohar: The Source of Kabbalistic Wisdom
by Rav P. S. Berg, Philip S. Berg
For thousands of years, no book has been more shrouded in mystery than the Zohar, yet no book offers greater wisdom to humankind. As the central text of Kabbalah, the Zohar was conceived by the ancient kabbalists as a guide for gaining fulfillment in the material world and for drawing closer to the sacred light of the spiritual realm. In The Essential Zohar, the eminent kabbalist Rav P. S. Berg thoroughly fulfills this intention, interpreting the Zohar’s teachings on evil, redemption, human relationships, wealth and poverty, and many other issues from a practical, contemporary perspective. The Zohar and Kabbalah have traditionally been known as the world’s most esoteric sources of spiritual knowledge, but Rav Berg has dedicated his life to making this wisdom universally available.
