"Diotima has created a book on pagan spirituality truly for the modern age. It successfully integrates modern Quantum Theory with magic and spirituality without any dichotomy in theory. We'd highly recommend it both for beginners and seasoned practitioners of magic and witchcraft."--Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone, authors of A Witches Bible, A Witches Goddess, Inner Mysteries and Lifting the Veil

Based on the life and tragic death of a veteran from our country's twenty-five-year involvement in Southeast Asia, this novella explores friendship, sailing, and the Vietnam War. It's a work concerned with the American and global landscape and our nation's late twentieth-century historical & cultural identity. A Catholic from coastal Connecticut, Robert Fitzgerald is at first indifferent towards--but finally a spiritual mentor to a young man from the rural South who arrives on his construction site thinking he understands life much better than he actually does. A combatant in the horrific siege at Dak To, Fitzgerald helps the young narrator find alternatives to various temptations of the early 1970s while navigating the Pacific Ocean between Ventura and Channel Islands. He shows the young man that the real joy of our brief, lives centers around being awed and reverent toward the Great Chain of Being, respecting all people despite their surface differences, working hard, living healthily and naturally "like Daniel in the Old Testament." Fitzgerald teaches him the basics of a more mature manhood, open-water navigation, even the names of fish, seal, and birds. This prose-work contains many facets and angles, including a non-linear section of contemporary and 1960s social critique mimicking Kierkegaard and Wendell Berry, with satiric echoes of Swift, Voltaire--even Jimi Hendrix. Eventually, the two friends journey to repair a millionaire's hurricane-damaged sloop off the coast of Fiji--on the small island of Malololailai--and travel a bit through French Polynesia. Before his untimely death back on American soil, Fitzgerald gives the young man a series of parables--as when the young man veryfirst meets him and aggressively accuses him of stealing his yellow hammer--that opens his eyes and enrich his life forever.

"We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills and the winding strams with tangled growth, as 'wild. Only to the white man was nature a 'wilderness' and only to him was the land 'infested' with 'wild' animals and 'savage' people. To us it was tame. Earth was boutiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery. Not until the hairy man from the east came and with brutal frenzy heaped injustices upon us and the families we loved was it 'wild' for us, it was that for us the 'Wild West' began." TOUCH THE EARTH is a selection of statements and writings by North American Indians, chosen to illuminate the course of Indian history and the abiding values of Indian life. Together they recount the pain of the Indian as he watched the white man kill the wild herbs and overrun the sacred lands of his ancestors. Mystified at first by the white man's ways, the Indian tone guves way first to anger, then desperation and, finally hopelessness. More than 50 pages of photographs, taken by the American photographer Edward S. Curtis in the early years of this century, complement the text.

Though the original edition of Touching the Earth is deeply embraced by those already practicing mindfulness in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, the revised edition seeks to make the exercises contained within more accessible for those new to Buddhist or mindfulness practice. Based on the loving kindness and compassion meditation of the Lotus Sutra, Touching the Earth contains one of the most popular and transformative practices of Thich Nhat Hanh. Written as a poetic conversation with the Buddha, it is a step-by-step guidebook to the practice of 'Beginning Anew'. Thich Nhat Hanh describes it as having the capacity to removing obstacles brought about by past wrongdoings and to bring back the joy of being alive. According to many of his students who are deeply touched by this practice, it can help renew our faith and develop our compassion. It presents a opportunity to heal our relationships through forgiveness and to embrace our ancestors, parents, teachers, and ourselves. Touching the Earth contains clear instructions for the 'Beginning Anew' practice with over 40 guided meditation verses, allowing the reader to practice alone or with others.
