The varieties of psychedelic experience by Robert E. L Masters( Book )

44 editions published between 1966 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most important books written on the effects of LSD on the human psyche. Its authoritative research has great relevance to the current debate on drug legalization. Prolific authors Robert Masters and Jean Houston are pioneer figures in the field of transpersonal psychology and founders of the Human Potentials Movement. The Varieties of Psychedelic Experience was published in 1966, just as the first legal restrictions on the use of psychedelic substances were being enacted. Unfortunately, the authors' pioneering work on the effects of LSD on the human psyche, which was viewed by its participants as possibly heralding a revolution in the study of the mind, was among the casualties of this interdiction. As a result, the promising results to which their studies attested were never fully explored. Nevertheless, their 15 years of research represents a sober and authoritative appraisal of what remains one of the most controversial developments in the study of the human psyche. Avoiding the wild excesses taken by both sides on this issue, this book is unique for the light it sheds on the possibilities and the limitations of psychedelic drugs, as well as on the techniques for working with them. With drug legalization an increasingly important issue, The Varieties of Psychedelic Experience provides a welcome and much needed contrast to the current hysteria that surrounds this topic

The passion of Isis and Osiris : a union of two souls by Jean Houston( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Passion of Isis and Osiris, Jean Houston, internationally renowned philosopher, psychologist, and explorer of world myth, takes us deep into the mysteries of Egypt, land of the ancient soul within us all. It is a culture in which every moment is filled with the interplay of human and divine. At the very center of Egyptian life, and its most eternal legacy to the world, is hieroglyphic thinking. The Egyptians created a language and perception of reality in which many meanings dance together - mind and emotion, spirit and material, thought, word, and image all coalesce in a single vibrant synergy. Divine humans interact with living gods and guides who link the worlds of nature, humanity, and cosmic spirit. Jean Houston brings this world to wonderful life, showing how the myth of Isis and Osiris gives modern readers a design for the marriage of body and soul, life and death, the tangible and the hidden. She shows how - in detailed exercises and dramatic enactments that can be done in groups or alone - we can identify the Isis and Osiris that are seeking reunion in each of us. The Passion of Isis and Osiris re-creates nothing less than a moment of Egyptian magic that allows us to enter a consciousness that is the gateway to transcendent love. This story of two spiritual soulmates still has resonance for us today, whether we are seeking to join the disparate parts of self of searching for a mate to bond with, soul to soul
