We form art. Art forms us. The title of this book has a dual meaning. As humans form works of art, we are in turn formed by what we create.

The Artist's Way is the seminal book on the subject of creativity. An international bestseller, millions of readers have found it to be an invaluable guide to living the artist's life. Still as vital today-or perhaps even more so-than it was when it was first published one decade ago, it is a powerfully provocative and inspiring work. In a new introduction to the book, Julia Cameron reflects upon the impact of The Artist's Way and describes the work she has done during the last decade and the new insights into the creative process that she has gained. Updated and expanded, this anniversary edition reframes The Artist's Way for a new century.
Budda and Jesus Christ, perhaps the two most pivotal figures in the history of humankind, each left behind a legacy of teachings and practices that have shaped the lives of billions of people over the course of two millennia. If they were to meet on the road today, what would each think of the other's spiritual views and practices? Thich Nhat Hanh has been part of a decades-long dialogue between the two greatest living contemplative traditions, and brings to Christianity an appreciation of its beauty that could be conveyed only by an outsider. In a lucid, meditative prose, he explores the crossroads of compassion and holiness at which Buddhism and Christianity meet, and reawakens our understanding of both.

This is no ordinary book but an invitation to travel beyond the limitations of present perception and into a genuine sense that within ourselves we carry the potential to transcend the confines of the cognitive systems we have inherited. Lujan Matus is a bearer of ancient shamanic teachings, learnt in the parallel realms of dreaming and waking under the direct tutelage of his benefactor, the old nagual Lujan, and his charismatic cohorts - one of whom is revealed to be the Neolithic sage Juan Matus. The empowering sequence of lessons transmitted within these pages provides unprecedented insight into the intricacies of human existence, whilst simultaneously opening the doors to a universe of mythical proportions. Upon entering this remarkable continuum of events the reader begins to magically integrate, through the generation of internal imagery that bends the parameters of perception and invariably transforms consciousness itself. These teachings are a crucial reminder that life is a gift of endless potency when reflected in the light of awakened awareness. The clarity and integrity that shines throughout this book cuts right to the marrow in so many ways, and raises such vast questions about the very premise of our existence, that at times the content is alarming. With direct language and an otherworldly understanding of human nature, not to mention interdimensional travel, a non-linear proposition of time, and the elucidation of hieroglyphs that are keys to unlock awareness, Lujan eclipses the scratching-on-the-surface attempts of those who precede him and extends an invitation unlike any other.
Written by the Buddhist meditation master and popular international speaker Soygal Rinpoche, this highly acclaimed book clarifies the majestic vision of life and death that underlies the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. It includes not only a lucid, inspiring and complete introduction to the practice of meditation but also advice on how to care for the dying with love and compassion, and how to bring them help of a spiritual kind. But there is much more besides in this classic work, which was written to inspire all who read it to begin the journey to enlightenment and so become 'servants of peace.'
