Divine Attunement: Music as a Path to Wisdom
By Yuval Ron with a Foreword by Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, Head of Sufi Order International
Music is the language of the soul, and Divine Attunement provides a fascinating window into the world of ecstatic music, sacred sound, and ritual movement. Based on collaborations with Zen Buddhist masters, Gnostic Christians, Sufi mystics, and Jewish Kabbalists, this book takes us on a journey of self-discovery that enables us to access greater energy and insight. Through essays, wisdom parables, and rare personal reflections, the secrets of sacred music mystically transform and guide us toward personal growth and enhanced joy!
Written by master-musician and composer Yuval Ron and with a Foreword by Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, Ph.D., head of Sufi Order International, Divine Attunement tells the stories of the Middle Eastern poets, gypsies, and mystics – such as Baal Shem Tov, Rabbi Yehuda Halevi, Hazrat Inayat Khan, and Rumi – all of whom used music to commune with the Divine. By retelling ancient wisdom stories and providing testimony from neuroscientists on how sound heals the body and spirit, Yuval brings us closer to the Divine...
Trusting Doubt: A Former Evangelical Looks at Old Beliefs in a New Light
By Valerie Tarico, Ph.D.
Most Christians earnestly strive to worship God and follow the example of Christ. But a belief that the Bible is literally true can put them in the odd position of defending falsehood, bigotry, and even violence. Is the Good Book even “good,” given its historical inaccuracies, scientific impossibilities, and moral contradictions? Trusting Doubt offers alternative explanations that are compatible with contemporary Christianity and provide a harmonious path to God based on logic and love.
Raised and educated in an evangelical environment, author Valerie Tarico speaks as a former “insider.” As such, she has identified the myriad issues that eroded her identity as a born-again believer and finally convinced her to trust her own doubt. Tarico holds a doctorate in Counseling Psychology from the University of Iowa, and she is a journalist who writes about moral development, the psychology of belief, and wisdom convergence.
The Truth: About the Five Primary Religions
By Rev. Laura M. George, J.D.
The Truth is the award-winning first book in the Oracle foundational trilogy. It presents a summary of the divine messages sent to us by God through the Prophets. When studied successively, these spiritual lessons form a "Tower of Truth" that should not be broken or interpreted along sectarian lines. Instead, these Truths should be assimilated into a contemporary spiritual and scientific database and shared by everyone, regardless of religious affiliation.
The Truth explores the five primary religions that evolved after the Prophets died: Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam, to determine whether these manmade religions have remained faithful to the Truth, including the primordial Truth that God is half masculine and half feminine energy. The Truth reveals that mankind has built a "Tower of Babel" with God's messages. Moreover, these now ancient religions have polarized humanity and brought us to the brink of World War III. The book also includes an objective template for measuring the adequacy of any religion, and an Appendix that shows the nexus between politics and religion throughout human history.
The Love: Of the Fifth Spiritual Paradigm
By Rev. Laura M. George, J.D.
The Love is a heart-warming and thought-provoking anthology containing over 70 new and classic selections from best-selling authors and Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners, such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Maya Angelou, Wendell Berry, Maxine Hong Kingston, Bill McKibben, Barbara Hand Clow, David Suzuki, Stephen Dunn, Madeleine L’Engle, Alex Grey, Gandhi, Susan McElroy, Henry Reed, Sharon Olds, Kabir, Brian McLaren, Margaret Starbird, Andrew Cohen, and Rumi.
The Love reminds us of the core message relayed by all of God’s prophets: Love is the Way. Once again, Oracle does not offer a definitive belief system. We merely underscore an obvious conclusion: the five primary religions have not led us toward Spiritual Unity. Therefore, until a contemporary theosophy emerges which is capable of uniting humanity, the only rational path for our continued physical survival and spiritual evolution is the simple yet elusive Religion of Love.
