There is an undeniable hunger for spiritual nourishment and direction, but many of us don't have time for extensive, time-consuming exercises. In Awake My Soul, Timothy Jones offers an accessible spirituality that real people can incorporate into each busy day. Beginning with the premise that you don't have to be a saint to be spiritually alive, Jones focuses our attention on twelve ways to find new meaning in everyday experiences. These suggestions are reminders of what we have forgotten along life's road--that God is within reach, and that we must keep our eyes and ears open to find grace and joy in the simplest things of daily life. Jones shows us how turning our thoughts to God can transform daily pressures into spiritual enrichment. Because his approach grows out of routines that are familiar to us all, it doesn't seem so overwhelming to make a long-term commitment to what promises to be the most rewarding contribution we will ever make to our spiritual well-being.

Marius Victorinus was the first Latin Christian of the fourth century to show the influence of Neoplatonism (Plotinus and Porphyry). As a convert from paganism, Victorinus' version of Christianity offers the student of Late Antiquity a window for understanding the conversion of the upper classes in the Western Roman Empire to Christianity. Because he was a professional rhetorician, an analysis of the exegetical work enables us to see how the moral mindset of the rhetorical schools found itself at home within Christianity. The Neoplatonic influences in the works of Ambrose and Augustine can be appreciated better when understood in relation to the intellectual circles that preceded them, Victorinus being the most well documented figure of this milieu.

Join Professor Helen Vendler in her course lecture on the Yeats poem "Among School Children". View her insightful and passionate analysis along with a condensed reading and student comments on the course. To know the poetry of our time, to look through its lenses and filters, is to see our lives illuminated. In these eloquent essays on recent American, British, and Irish poetry, Helen Vendler shows us contemporary life and culture capturedin lyric form by some of our most celebrated poets. An incomparable reader of poetry, Vendler explains its power; it is, she says, the voice of the soul rather than the socially marked self speaking directly to us through the stylization of verse. "Soul Says," the title of a poem by Jorie Graham, is thus the name of this collection. In essays on Seamus Heaney, Donald Davie, Allen Ginsberg, John Ashbery, Rita Dove, Jorie Graham, and others, Vendler makes difficult poetry accessible. She reveals the idiosyncratic nature of lyric form, and points out the artistic choices present in even the simplest texts. Vendler examines the use of abstraction in lyric poems; considers what readers seek and receive from verse; describes the role of such stylistic devices as compression, structural dynamics, and syntactic ordering; and renders a wide variety of poetic styles meaningful. Through her perceptive eyes we see how lyric poetry, speaking with natural musicality and rhythm, can by arrangement, pacing, metaphor, and tone create symbol from fact-and fill us with new understanding. In these direct and engaged commentaries, she explores the force, beauty, and intellectual complexity of contemporary lyric verse.

This sophisticated book, which reads like a good story, gives a shamanic dimension to psychology and the best psychological analysis to the notion of shamanism....Before reading anything else on shamans or 'spirituality, ' read this book." -- Thomas Moore "In this masterful account, Daniel Noel illumines the rising tide of shamanism. Tracking the primal practices f the religious life through literary as well as anthropological sources, he manages to extricate the sham from the shamanic while extending our vision of what it is to live in a larger reality." -- Jean Houston "A startling, ground-breaking work that offers great hope for synthesizing the many religious traditions into one comprehensive vision of the nature of our lives." Vine Deloria, Jr., author, God is Red and Red Earth, White Lies "Noel...presents an innovative and startling path that will enable Western seekers to become sorcerers." -- Values & Visions "Noel provides a model for renewed shamanic seeking. Through dreams and imaginings can come the spirituality of imaginal healing, and the loss of imagination equates to the loss of the soul. He draws from two decades of work with shamanic imagining, relating in anecdotal fashion psychological assumptions of renewed shamanic healing."

The Soul of a Woman

What is a Soul if it is not a Woman's Soul? I wake to find myself writing about love, pain, sadness, and a touch of anger that women, most of the time, try to hide from others. My spiritual and love poems allow me as a woman to feel an inner peace that many times people long for but have been unable to achieve. As you read you will find a part of me and a part of someone else. Maybe it will be you. Just remember that a Woman's Soul is undefined.

Essential reading for scholars and students in critical theory, psychoanalysis, and gender studies. How does the self care for itself in the posthumanist era? What psychic processes might allow the postmodern subject to find meaning and value in its life? Is it possible to delineate a theory of psychic potentiality that is compatible with poststructuralist models of fluid, decentered, and polyvalent subjectivity? Reinventing the Soul offers a new perspective on what it means to be a human being and to strive in the world despite the wounding effects of the socialization process. Drawing on the rich legacies of French poststructuralism and Lacanian psychoanalysis, Ruti builds an affirmative alternative to the post-Foucaultian tendency to envision subjectivity as a function of hegemonic systems of power. She proposes that the subject's encounter with the world also necessarily activates the psyche's innovative potential. By focusing on matters of creative agency, imaginative empowerment, inner metamorphosis, and self-actualization, Ruti outlines some of the mechanisms by which the psyche manages not only to survive its lack, alienation, or suffering, but also to transform its abjection into an existentially livable reality. Central to Ruti's argument is the idea that human beings relate to the world in active rather than merely passive waysas dynamic creators of meaning rather than as powerless dupes of disciplinary power.

Living from Your Soul

Our hearts yearn for more. This path of consciousness, of freedom, of living from your soul, may well go against everything you've ever been taught by society, culture, your family, all of it. And yet... it's the only path worth taking.

For much of our lives, many of us live asleep. Yet there comes a day, early to a life or late, when we wake up. This happens to everyone, at one point or another. The door simple swings open, and we are invited beyond. In this moment of awakening, all distraction and drama falls away, and we experience pure beingness, a moment of awareness so exquisite and full, that our hearts burst open. It is in this moment that we understand our true selves: Divine beings who are One with everything, all the time. No separation possible. And from the moment we taste this nectar, this moment of pure Light? Our hearts yearn for more. This path of consciousness, of freedom, of living from your soul, may well go against everything you've ever been taught by society, culture, your family, all of it. And yet... it's the only path worth taking. The journey to waking up. And remembering who we really are.
