Beautifully written excursion into the world of chivalry and the relevance of it for today. The sensitivity and erudition of Pir Zia shine like a beacon of light. A beautiful book.


Unattended Sorrow: Recovering from Loss and Reviving the Heart
Unattended Sorrow: Recovering from Loss and Reviving the Heart
by Stephen Levine
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Just exquisite ..., 21 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book, like all of Stephen Levine's work, is just a treasure-trove of nourishment for the soul. His compassionate understanding and articulation of the nuances of the grief process is unmatched by any other author I've read on the subject. if you have experienced loss and are in grief, his words offer an accompaniment, a companionship in that they mirror with such tender accuracy where you might find yourself to be. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars and offering some very insightful and useful pithy phrases for contemplation and reflection, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating analysis of the degrees of the zodiac, channelled by the author. Suitable for astrologers and non-astrologers alike, and offering some very insightful and useful pithy phrases for contemplation and reflection. However, I've only given it three stars because of patchy formatting. Bold headings missing, spacing occasionally inconsistent - the usual annoying stuff that one finds in digital editions. That said, I did appreciate the many hyperlinks within the text itself, making it easier to cross-refer to the different sections, and I've been enjoying getting into it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing ..., 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A little disappointing. I really enjoyed the introduction, which was clearly and intelligently written, offering some useful historical material. However, I found the rest of the content rather poorly organised, perhaps in need of further editing, in terms of spacing, headings, bolding, and so on ... a frequently-found hazard with digital books. Being a summary, the ideas often seemed a little disconnected, which is inevitable, but this could have been improved by better formatting. Still worth a look, though.


The Significance of Dreams: The Four States of Consciousness, Dreams and the Astrological Planets
The Significance of Dreams: The Four States of Consciousness, Dreams and the Astrological Planets
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational, beautiful, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was a delight to read. The thoughts and words of master astrologer Dane Rudhyar have been beautifully edited by Michael Meyer. Four levels of dream activity are clearly differentiated, within the context of the 'path of awakening'. Modern psychological theory is skilfully blended with ancient wisdom into a text which is interesting, well constructed and very useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicate yet powerful evocation, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To read Stephen Levine's exquisite writings on Kuan Yin is to be introduced to her, and to receive a live 'transmission' of her energy. There could hardly be a better writer, or scribe, than Stephen Levine who has devoted his life to the work of compassion. It is not surprising that he was 'chosen' for this task. A joy to read.

I've always loved these pictures, and to read this book deepened my appreciation of them even more. Lucid, smooth, writing, clear thinking and a luminous and gentle wisdom makes this book a wonderful companion on the path of awakening. Truly food for the spirit. Do read it.

unfortunately the DVD would not play. Still not sure whether it was a faulty disk, or a format that my DVD player wouldn't recognize, although it's supposed to be 'multi-format'. Amazon accepted return without problems, for which I was grateful, if disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading ..., 20 Feb 2014

...for anyone interested in the thoughts and beliefs that have shaped our contemporary culture. Basically, if you have billions of people down the ages who have bought into the idea of the 'End of Times' or the 'Apocalypse' ... that is what you get. Or is it the other way around? This book will get you thinking if you've never considered these kind of themes, and you have, it will be good grist to the mill of your musings. A great read.
