This book explores issues of current interest in supervisor training. In particular, the range of approaches that authors represent reveals the impact of assumptions on curriculum design and thus on future work. Volume two enables six authors from different theoretical orientations to declare and demonstrate what their courses offer participants from their own theoretical orientation, and how each course fits participants to work with supervisees trained in other approaches.

This book is a compilation of small articles and posts. The whole motive of this book is to get people motivated and to become aware of small issues in which we have the tendency to overlook. This book is a serious effort by the author to change the perspective of people. These ideas and definitions are his own, and he wants people to think outside the box. The author believes that this is the best way of getting his messages to the mass public. He wanted to share many ideas. He also believes this is the only best way to convey his messages in small stories and posts. He believes if you even read one post a day, then this will have a great impact on you. The author believes that we do things without thinking about them and without evaluating the consequences and outcome of them. This book is a small gesture and a big effort to shake people up to the different ideas and to make people realize to see the world in a different perspective. He believes that we have very many interesting things around us, but we are just stuck in life and regular stuff. We need to realize our true potential, and we should see the world in a different way.

"Wisdom of Gabriel" is a book that was channeled in 2006 and is a compilation of three books in one. It has three different topics that Archangel Gabriel talks about as he is channeled by Lisa. It is an inspirational and thought-provoking book with intention to throw some light on life's conditions. Gabriel expresses concepts that describe new ways of perceiving and understanding each topic. The three books, each covering a different topic, are Wisdom of Love, Wisdom or Children, and Wisdom of Time. Wisdom of Love goes into why and how man expresses love and shows ways that one can free oneself up to love more. Wisdom of Children explains how our children are a gift to us and that they can lead us back to our God Source. Wisdom of Time explores the concept of time and how it can free us or limit us. All three books work synergistically to help us understand the human condition better. It is merely an exploration and self help book with an honest and direct style, all written with love and compassion.

An Obituary for "Wisdom Literature" considers the definitional issues long plaguing Wisdom scholarship. Will Kynes argues that Wisdom Literature is not a category used in early Jewish and Christian interpretation. It first emerged in modern scholarship, shaped by its birthplace in nineteenth-century Germany. Kynes casts new light on the traits long associated with the category, such as universalism, humanism, rationalism, empiricism, and secularism, which so closely reflect the ideals of that time. Since it was originally assembled to reflect modern ideals, it is not surprising that biblical scholars have faced serious difficulties defining the corpus on another basis or integrating it into the theology of the Old Testament. The problem, however, is not only why the texts were perceived in this one way, but that they are perceived in only one way at all. The book builds on recent theories from literary studies and cognitive science to create a new alternative approach to genre that integrates hermeneutical insight from various genre proposals. This theory is then applied to Job, Ecclesiastes, and Proverbs, mapping out the complex textual network contributing to their meaning. With the death of the Wisdom Literature category, both the so-called Wisdom texts and the concept of wisdom find new life.

Tantric Wisdom for Today s World The New Yoga of Awareness

Tantric Wisdom for Today s World   The New Yoga of Awareness

Author: Peter Wilberg

View: 129

The Tantric Tradition known as 'Kashmir Shaivism' bore within it the understanding that God is not a being 'with' awareness. Instead God is awareness, pure and unbounded. This pure awareness is like a stainless mirror - invisible in itself - in which all experienced realities are not only reflected but actively and continuously manifested. The New Yoga of Awareness is not merely a commentary on or an explanation of this tradition, but the most comprehensive and original contribution to it since its synthesis by the great 10th century teacher and tantric adept Abhinavagupta. It unites religion, science, philosophy and theology, psychology and metaphysics in a way that truly makes it not just 'a' new yoga but THE New Yoga - an entirely new school of 'tantra' evolved from and for today's world. Tantra does not separate religion and science. It is yogic religious science. The aim of The New Yoga is to make this new and highly practical religious science known to the world in order that it can begin to work for it. It does so by challenging the foundations of both Western science and the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam), along with the "monotheism of money" (Marx) and the godless 'science' that is its religion. Peter Wilberg's wide-ranging writings on tantra, introduced in this book, constitute a new and highly practical body of theosophical and religious scientific knowledge of the sort that alone can help bring an end to today's rising ocean of religious and scientific ignorance - and to the ecological devastation, economic inequalities and global mayhem that go with it. Above all, they offer a way of accomplishing this world-transforming aim - not through jihad, violence or war but through learning to experience that pure and Divine Awareness ('Shiva') which pervades all things, and the Divine Power ('Shakti') of Awareness that manifests them all.

The simplest truth, when observed in our daily lives, has an amazing effect. That truth? What is focused on GROWS. It is typical in our society today to use labels or groupings or diagnoses as the lens through which we focus on ourselves and others. From this perspective our view of ourselves, of others, can be cut short, distorted and fragmented. Suppose instead we could view ourselves and others through the lens that each person has an inborn, inviolable power to take action in living life. Then suppose that this POWER becomes our focus. Suddenly, we have a whole new view of ourselves and of being human. With this perspective, we accept one another as being responsible, as being in control of the actions we take, as having an integral place in our homes and communities. This is the power of the ultimate yes or no, it is profound and it can change the world. A New View of Being Human offers in plain language, a description of the complex, intangible processes that comprise this power of the human being. Any word spoken, any action taken, any feeling experienced by any person is the result of these processes. The processes are universal to every person, yet are unique in each one of us. This book provides the reader with a platform for considering what it means to grow in understanding the power of being human and the value of each one's contribution to this world in which we live.

SOMETHING IS WAKING The fiefs that exist at the heart of the city of Elantra are home to sentient Towers that guard the world against the incursion of Shadow. But between the fiefs exists the gray world of the border zone. In it, geography changes between one passage across a border and the next. The rules of magic are different there—and yet somehow familiar to Kaylin Neya. When a Shadow escapes, Kaylin must find out how…and why. If Shadows can breach the barrier erected by the Towers, the whole of Elantra will be devoured. It’s happened on other worlds. Bellusdeo, Kaylin’s Dragon companion, absolutely believes it can happen on theirs. The border zone holds secrets and ancient histories, and people are gathering there in search of its power. Without even understanding what that power is, or why it exists, Kaylin is in a desperate race against time to find those secrets first. She doesn’t know who her enemies are. She doesn’t know how many she’ll face. But she won’t face them alone.

This monumental work is the first comprehensive biblical theology to appear in many years and is the culmination of Brevard Child's lifelong commitment to constructing a biblical theology that surmounts objections to the discipline raised over the past generation. Childs rejects any approaches that overstress either the continuity or discontinuity between the Old and New Testaments. He refuses to follow the common pattern in Christian thought of identifying biblical theology with the New Testament's interest in the Old. Rather, Childs maps out an approach that reflects on the whole Christian Bible with its two very different voices, each of which retains continuing integrity and is heard on its own terms.

The best available texts have been used to translate "Mark's Gospel" into modern English. The picture of Jesus that emerges seems far from the usual stained-glass image of the Savior. Also featured are selections from "The Didache" ("The Teaching") and the so-called "Odes of Solomon" (actually a Christian book of hymns entitled "Odes of Peace"), very probably written by a disciple of St John around the years 100-120. Also included are a couple of characteristic chapters from "The Shepherd of Hermas". All three of these books were regarded by many of the early church fathers as part of the New Testament. In fact, "Didache" and "The Shepherd" were formerly two of the most popular books in the Bible. To round off "More Bible Wisdom" is a brief excerpt from "The Epistle of Barnabas", plus a selection of sayings and stories by Jesus, culled from a number of sources, but chiefly from the gospels of Matthew and Luke.

An inspired and practical approach to developing the innate power of groups to make wise, compassionate, and creative decisions Based on nine years of research involving scores of participants Includes real-life examples and specific practices to help readers understand and cultivate collective wisdom and avoid collective folly If we are to disentangle the extraordinary challenges that we face today in organizations, communities, and nations we must transcend our divisions and develop solutions together. But what enables us to collectively make wise choices and sound judgments instead of splintering apart? When human beings gather together, a depth of awareness and insight, a transcendent knowing, becomes available. Based on nine years of research The Power of Collective Wisdom shows how we can tap into the extraordinary cocreative potential that exists in every group. Collective wisdom is elusive and unpredictable it cant be willed into being, but the authors describe six commitments people can adopt that will increase the likelihood of its appearing. Stories and historical examples throughout serve to illuminate and illustrate how collective wisdom has emerged in a range of settings and through the lives and traditions of varied cultures. Equally important, the authors describe how to recognize the pitfalls of polarization or false agreement, either of which can lead to collective folly a phenomenon with which recent history has made us all too familiar. And they offer a set of practices to help readers maintain the key lessons of the book. The Power of Collective Wisdom is a foundational book for an emerging field of study and practice relevant to everyone seeking more effective and satisfying ways of working with others.

The author of The Best Advice So Far introduces a witty and engaging book that infuses time-tested proverbs with new energy, offers practical strategies for success and happiness to a new generation, and beautifully humanizes the very real people who penned these tidbits of gritty wisdom throughout history. TRIED & (Still) TRUE proves that just because something is old doesn't mean it's boring--and that while language, culture and technology may change with time, we as human beings remain much more alike than perhaps we'd thought. Despite their not having had laser teeth whitening or social media followings or audiences of thousands paying $500 a head to attend conferences in order to hear what they had to say, our grandmothers and great-great-grandpappies (all of whom, mind you, were young and quite hip in their day)... knew stuff. Important stuff. They were smart people. Resourceful. Tenacious. And they'd learned a thing or two about what really matters: How to live at peace in a war-torn world. How to stretch a dollar during the worst of times. How to navigate conflict and to be a good neighbor. How to have character in the face of trials. How to be truly happy, come what may. To modern ears, the speech these old souls used may sound quaint, outdated--even archaic. Yet the wisdom they passed down and the principles for living remain every bit as powerful as they ever were.

'But where shall wisdom be found?' asked Job, and from across the ancient world came many different replies. Some conceived of wisdom in supernatural personified form and answered the question in appropriate terms. For others, wisdom was something far more human, manifested in a number of different possible ways. For many philosophers, on the other hand, it was simply the highest human intellectual attainment possible. However understood, wisdom was highly prized across the ancient world and throughout ancient history. To the extent to which there was a shared ancient culture, wisdom lay at the heart of it. However, the modern study of the subject has been very fragmented. Old Testament scholars, theologians, historians of philosophy, Egyptologists, Assyriologists, classicists and historians of ideas have all taken an interest, but there has been limited communication and co-operation between the disciplines. This is the first book to bring the different aspects of the study of ancient wisdom together and present it as a subject in its own right, looking at wise deities, wise figures from myth and legend, wise characters from ancient history, practices associated with wisdom (including divination and healing), and wisdom as it appears in ancient literature. Familiar figures such as Solomon and Socrates rub shoulders here with less well-known ones such as Shulgi and Stilbides. Specially drawn maps accompany the text to provide a geographical context while a timeline provides a chronological one.
