The Politics of Lust

Sex is one of the great joys of life, satisfying to the body, sublime to the soul. No wonder that most of us say that we relish erotic experience.

by Edward Hushqua Do you think like a horse? Professor Edward Hushqua argues that most of us do. We are happy to follow someone else's lead. Hushqua examines every aspect of daily life, including our diet, wardrobe, home decoration, recreational activities, career choices and even our sexual life and shows how narrow and stereotyped are our choices. Individuality in modern culture amounts to nothing more creative than choosing between a few competing brands.

Shamanic Revolution

by Elaine W. Reedy

Our world is teetering on the edge of ecological disaster. Only a radical rejection of our materialist lifestyle can save us.

But what would inspire such a change?

Elaine W. Reedy proposes shamanism as the answer. The world's oldest spiritual tradition, shamanism powerfully connects its practitioners to the natural world. Central to its practice is the experience of ecstasy. Shamanism offers the intense gratification that consumer-addicts seek, but never find.
