From the beautiful apsaras of Hindu myth to the swan maidens of European fairy tales, stories of flying women - some carried by wings, others by clouds, rainbows, floating scarves, and flying horses - reveal the perennial fascination with and ambivalence about female power and sexuality. In Women Who Fly, Serinity Young examines the motif of the flying woman as it appears in a wide variety of cultures and historical periods, in legends, myths, rituals, sacred narratives, and artistic productions. She considers supernatural women like the Valkyries of Norse legend, who transport men to immortality; winged deities like the Greek goddesses Iris and Nike; figures of terror like the Furies, witches, and succubi; airborne Christian mystics; and wayward, dangerous women like Lilith and Morgan le Fay. Looking beyond the supernatural, Young examines the modern mythology surrounding 20th-century female aviators like Amelia Earhart and Hanna Reitsch.The first book to systematically chronicle the figure of the flying woman in myth, literature, art, and pop culture, Women Who Fly offers a fresh look at the ways in which women have both influenced and been understood by society and religious traditions throughout the ages and around the world. 1.

The psychic abilities of most humans are dampened by the clatter of the conscious mind. In this timely book, Targ draws on the work of ancient mystics and traditions--Gnostic, Christian, Buddhist, kabbalistic Jewish, Sufi, yogi, and especially Hindu spiritual master Patanjali--to show readers how to quiet this noise and see into the far reaches of time and space through remote viewing.
In a teeming, often-suspect ocean of gurus, mystics, fakirs, yogis, perfect masters, and various other self-proclaimed incarnations of the godhead who have stepped foot on American soil over the years in pursuance of their spiritual ambitions, Swami Vivekananda was arguably the first, finest, and resolutely most authentic. A simple, austere man, he was a mountain of spiritual power made more impressive by his innate kindness, humility, and compassion toward all. In this impossibly rare collection, the great master speaks for himself via a long-lost recording based on the philosophical, esoteric, and transcendent teachings of his beloved Hindu faith, or sanatan dharma (everlasting truth). Further, there is featured a profound collection of some of the swami’s finest thoughts on life and the spiritual path narrated by Giuliano. All in all, here is an intriguing, inspirational, historic audio biography of one of the most famous but yet, oddly, least known of the spiritual titans of his time and beyond. An absolute must for all serious yoga practitioners and devotees of truth. A true, unexpected spiritual treasure. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Geoffrey Giuliano.
