The Sixth Sense: a forgotten, hidden key lying dormant within every human..

Is it possible to:
Influence reality with the power of thought?
– Push into the universal mind, vastly increasing your intelligence?
– Easily reach peak states for real, breakthrough spiritual experiences?

Indeed and much more. This is not just another fuzzy New Age book about a magical, vague ‘sixth sense’.

Igniting the Sixth Sense deals with the magnetic sense that allows birds, whales, bees and many other animals to detect and use magnetic fields in ways that seem impossible for humans. Yet, we possess this same natural ability. What happens if you combine a modern human with an active, magnetic sensory? They display skills and abilities that seem, at times, super-human.

Eric Pepin, the #1 spiritual Amazon bestselling author of Meditation within Eternity and The Handbook of the Navigator, takes you on a journey where you will discover:

* How to access a larger memory beyond your own; the Akashic Records
* Discover the method of magnetic prana attraction that makes the entire Universe react to who you are and what you want
* How to enhance every mind, body and spiritual technique you practice. Including meditation, martial arts and more
* The 15 minute miracle that gives you nearly unlimited amounts of energy
* How to create a ‘psychic buffer’ so you aren’t overwhelmed, harmed or influenced by the energy and thoughts of others
* Learn the secret to programming your own energy field

And that’s just the beginning. There are more than 280 pages worth, packed with in-depth knowledge and effective techniques you can easily apply. It’s all here, and it works.

Eric Pepin is the world’s leading trailblazer on the real, experiential process of unfolding the human consciousness and spiritual awakening by accessing Multi-Dimensional Consciousness.

More than a mere philosopher, thinker or teacher, Eric Pepin offers ways to reach breakthrough states based on his own personal experience. From his past as a childhood prodigy “psychic”, to his transformation into a spiritual thinker giving courses to friends on the Earth as a living organism and how to access the Gaia Mind at age 15, Eric has had an unexpected and colorful life, all leading to his one true passion: giving others the tools they need to connect to God.

Synopsis: In his work as a spiritual teacher interacting with seekers and activists from around the world, Chris Saade has witnessed a remarkable recent phenomenon: a new wave of spirituality that is socially and globally engaged in the pursuit of justice, earth care, and solidarity. Saade calls this movement second wave spirituality, and in this book he maps out the cutting-edge ideas that are fueling this new wave of engaged spirituality. He challenges us to rise to our spiritual task and join the millions of all faiths who are awakening to the suffering and social struggles of all living beings.

According to Saade, new wave spirituality holds a vision of the intrinsic values of love: justice, global peace, solidarity, inclusion, democratic freedom, compassion, and reconciliation. Saade explores current trends of thought that are shaking the foundations of our belief systems and propelling us toward an evolutionary leap. We are in the midst of a spiritual renaissance, Saade asserts, a universal reawakening that will steer us away from the abysmal global dangers we are facing.

The book also includes a collection of quotations as a resource for those working for peace, justice, and inclusion. By dividing the selections into theme-specific chapters, Saade helps us easily access the wisdom and companionship of other souls committed to our diversity, our oneness, and our pursuit of justice.

t seems that he was worried that the Seon meditation teachings these days are being lost among the latest health and lifestyle fads and trends.
It seems that meditation in general, and even Seon meditations in particular, are being presented strictly as a way to gain so-called ‘healing.” Or “well-being.” Or “stress relief.”
– Now, Seon meditation does provide those benefits,
– but the original purpose of Seon meditation has always been and must always be: enlightenment.
And that’s what I’m here to talk about today.

요즘 사람들이 건강을 위한 생활문화로 선수행을 하다보니 마치 유행처럼 받아들여져 수행의 근본 정신이 사라질지 모른다는 걱정을 하셨습니다.
– 사실 많은 사람들이 명상, 또는 참선수행을 할 때,
단순히 심신안정, 건강, 스트레스 해소 방법 정도로만 이해하는 듯합니다.
– 물론 실제 참선을 하면 그런 기능적인 효과들도 생겨납니다.
– 그러나 선수행의 근본 목적은 항상 깨달음에 있어왔고
이후로도 역시 깨달음에 목적을 두어야만 합니다.
– 바로 이 부분(깨달음)에 대해 오늘 말씀드리고자 합니다.

Are you longing for your life to be easier and more fun? Would you like to stop pushing, micromanaging, and forcing things so you can relax? What if you could enjoy what you have instead of always lusting for “more”? What if you could live in “the zone,” propelled by powerful currents toward the right people and opportunities? What if you could stop worrying about money and live with more emotional ease in the moment? If you answer “yes” to all these questions and desire lasting positive change, then prepare to experience the ecstasy of surrender.
The art of letting go, Dr. Judith Orloff explains, is the secret key to manifesting power and success in all areas of life, including work, relationships, sexuality, radiant aging, and health and healing. In our superconnected world where emails and text messages constantly interrupt us, it’s easier to let go than you think. Once embraced, surrendering removes roadblocks and the exhaustion that comes from “trying too hard”—and it helps you achieve goals more effortlessly and brings ongoing happiness.
With her stunning gift for storytelling coupled with her unique, results-oriented approach to physical, emotional, and spiritual health—marrying neuroscience, psychiatry, intuitive medicine, energy techniques, and more—Judith provides a powerful, practical, and accessible map for anyone who is longing to be happier but who feels stuck, burned-out, tense, worried, or afraid to let go.

Dr. Judith Orloff (Positive Energy; Emotional Freedom) has made it her calling to remind patients, listeners, and readers that we don’t need to knot ourselves up in negativity. In The Ecstasy of Surrender, she encourages readers to stop sabotaging ourselves by pushing too hard, but she goes much further, explaining how surrender (whatever its bad rep) can actually help us achieve success and a previously unimagined tranquility. Her techniques of relaxing ourselves out of anxieties, toxic people, and unhealthy situations aren’t signs of weakness; they are strategies for inner peace and success.

Ram Dass & Dr. J. Orloff on the Power of Surrender in Healing

Author of “The Ecstasy of Surrender”, Dr. Judith Orloff, dialogues with spiritual teacher Ram Dass on the power of surrender in health and healing. Dialogue takes place at Ram Dass’s house overlooking Maui, HI. Let go and trust! More information on http://www.drjudithorloff.com

The ecstasy of surrender: Judith Orloff, MD at TEDxAmericanRiviera 2012

You can sabotage success by pushing too hard. Surrender is the antidote to stress in a world that relentlessly conspires to interrupt creative thought. Surrender boosts your brain’s endorphins–euphoric, opiate-like pain killers–and serotonin, a natural antidepressant that allows you to relax, have more fun, and succeed more wildly than ever before. Life becomes easier and more blissful when you can let go.

Nineteenth-century Tibetan mystic Tertön Sogyal was a visionary, whose mastery of meditation led him to be a revered teacher to the Thirteenth Dalai Lama. Known for his deep spiritual insights and service to the nation of Tibet, Tertön Sogyal’s ability to harness the power of the mind was born of both his profound understanding of the Buddha’s teachings and his unique experiences, all the while striving for peace against tremendous odds. His life is an example of courage and diligence appreciated by spiritual practitioners of all traditions; and his practical instructions on meditation and opening one’s heart–amid conflict, uncertainty, and change–are as relevant today as they were during his lifetime.

Fearless in Tibet, the first comprehensive work in English on Tertön Sogyal, captures the essence of his teachings and his inner world of visions and spiritual realizations. It also brings to life the challenges he faced during his early yogic training and his efforts to promote harmony between Tibet and China.

Combining riveting storytelling and Tertön Sogyal’s profound instructions, Matteo Pistono takes you on a journey through the mystical past that reveals practical inner guidance for today’s challenges. You will see the power of transforming negativity into opportunity, letting go of attachments, becoming present, and embracing impermanence. This intricate tapestry of intrigue and spirituality will infuse your path with timeless wisdom and inspiration.

Matteo Pistono is a writer, photographer, practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism, and author of “Fearless in Tibet: The Life of the Mystic Tertön Sogyal” (Hay House 2014). Pistono lived and traveled throughout Tibet and the Himalayas for a decade, bringing to the West graphic accounts and photos of China’s human rights abuses in Tibet, detailed in his memoir, “In the Shadow of the Buddha” (Dutton 2011). Pistono’s writings and photographs about Tibetan and Himalayan cultural, political, and spiritual landscapes have appeared in The Washington Post, BBC’s In-Pictures, The Global Post, Men’s Journal, Kyoto Journal, and HIMAL South Asia. He is the founder of Nekorpa (www.nekorpa.org), a non-profit foundation working to protect sacred pilgrimage sites around the world, and he sits on the Executive Council of the International Network of Engaged Buddhists, and the Board of Directors of Rigpa Fellowship and the Conservancy for Tibetan Art and Culture. Pistono and his wife, Monica, divide their time between Wyoming, Washington DC, and Asia. http://www.matteopistono.com

The defining moment of my life came when I was a 21 yr old college student. I had the undeniable experience that I am one with God, one with all that is. This experience has never left me. The rest of my life has been dedicated to going deeper into that experience and all its ramifications.

I started a quest which I called my search for the Kingdom of Heaven. This was an inward search, a research into my self.

As I looked deeply and honestly within my self, Divine qualities were revealed. First, Divine Light appeared, then the nurturing quality of Divine Love manifested. Other Divine qualities emerged. I discovered that these Divine qualities could be called upon to improve my daily life and the lives of my family and friends.

As I worked with the Divine qualities, I began to receive guidance and knowledge from a Divine Presence. At first, it came from Jesus. Later, Mother God made her self known to me and offered a great wealth of Divine wisdom. In time I began working with people outside my own family. The situations and challenges they presented brought forth from me a depth of divine wisdom to guide and transform their lives.

It is this Divine Knowledge that I want to bring to as many people as possible. I have developed a personal relationship with Divine Mother. I converse with Her all of the time. It is the most powerful, passionate and loving experience I have ever known. I want to help others develop this Divine Relationship. I have created simple tools and techniques to help you enter into your own very personal relationship with Divine Mother.

I now live in Fairfield, Iowa with my husband. We have 2 children. I completed a BA degree in Political Science, and an MA in the Science of Creative Intelligence. I’m also an Ordained Minister. The verbal vibrational healing tools that I developed to get to know Divine Mother are called Transformational Prayer®. Because of my close association with Divine Mother I have founded a church in her name, Divine Mother Church. Since 1999 I have been teaching energy healing classes and giving private consultations in partnership with Divine Mother, bringing her transforming wisdom and guidance to thousands of people.

Divine Mother is here. She wants to talk to you.

Interview conducted 9/14/2013.


Francis Lucille is a spiritual teacher of the tradition of Advaita Vedanta (non-duality). He became a disciple of Jean Klein, a French Advaita teacher whom he met in 1975. This was the beginning of a close association that lasted until the death of his friend and spiritual master in 1998. Jean Klein’s own guru, “Panditji” Rao, whom he met in India in the nineteen-fifties, was a college professor in Bengalore who taught Sanskrit and belonged to a lineage of traditional Advaita Vedanta teachers. http://www.francislucille.com

Happiness is our true nature – Francis Lucille

This is an excerpt from the interview with Francis Lucille at the Science and Nonduality Conference 2011 featured in the 3DVD set “Science and Nonduality Anthology Vol.3”.


Return of the Prodigal Son – Drawing on Henri Nouwen’s book that interprets this famous parable, this talk looks at the ways we cut off from loving awareness, and the process of homecoming. Our inquiry, reflections and a guided meditation focus on an essential and often overlooked element of transformation: our capacity to trust in love, to let love in.

What might the Buddhism of the future look like? With all that we have learned in the modern and postmodern world, how can Buddhists be true to the central teachings of the tradition while also including them in a new framework that is inclusive of ongoing discoveries?

Ken Wilber here explores these key questions facing Buddhism and indeed all of the world’s great religions today, showing how traditional Buddhist teachings themselves suggest an ongoing evolution leading toward a more unified, holistic, and interconnected spirituality. Touching on all of the key turning points in the history of Buddhism, Wilber describes the unique way in which the tradition has been open to the continuing unfolding and expansion of its own teachings, and he suggests possible paths toward an ever more Integral approach.

Ken Wilber is the founder of Integral Institute and the co-founder of Integral Life. He is an internationally acknowledged leader and the preeminent scholar of the Integral stage of human development. His many books, all of which are still in print, can be found at Amazon.com. Some of his more popular books include Integral Spirituality; No Boundary; Grace and Grit; Sex, Ecology, Spirituality; and the “everything” books: A Brief History of Everything (one of his largest selling books) and A Theory of Everything (probably the shortest introduction to his work).

This is a trailblazing book that explores an old way of healing through the spirit of plants! Eliot Cowen learned that it wasn’t the plant that healed a person, but the spirit in the plant. Learning to contact the spirit of the plant was to ask it directly to heal the person. This ancient practice of plant spirit medicine, long forgotten in the West, has now been remembered, revitalized and reintroduced by this American healer.

Enriched by the author’s many explorations since its first edition, this new edition unfolds as a series of chapters on how plant spirit medicine has resolved specific issues and imbalances in his own healing journey and in his work with others. Readers will learn from a wealth of stories and teachings how plant spirits can directly communicate with and aid us, including:

* Plant spirit medicine’s five-element view of healing

* Receiving guidance from plants, including those found within herbal preparations

* Questionnaires to assess our own states of health and balance

* New chapters on community and on such “controversial” sacred plants as peyote, marijuana, and tobacco

* Additional interviews with plant shamans of many traditions

Whether we live in a mountain cabin or a city loft, the gifts of the plant spirits present themselves everywhere. Plant Spirit Medicine opens our eyes and hearts to initiate and nourish this deepest of natural bonds.


Eliot Cowan is the founder of the Blue Deer Center in Margaretville, New York, where he provides training in Plant Spirit Medicine and other traditions. For many years, he apprenticed with the shaman Don Guadalupe Gonzalez Rios who, in 2000, ritually recognized Cowan as a guide to Shamanic apprentices in the Huichol tradition. He is a member of the Council of Elders for the Temple of Sacred Fire Healing. See bluedeer.org.

Nisargadatta Maharaj (1897-1981) was an Indian spiritual teacher and philosopher of Advaita (Nondualism), and a Guru, belonging to the Inchgiri branch of the Navnath Sampradaya. In 1973, the publication of his most famous and widely translated book, “I Am That”, an English translation of his talks in Marathi by Maurice Frydman, brought him worldwide recognition and followers

For millennia, great thinkers have contemplated the meaning and purpose of human existence; but while most assumed that humanity was the end point of creation or the pinnacle of evolution, Ted Chu makes the provocative claim that the human race may in fact be a means rather than an end—that humankind will give rise to evolutionary successors.

In this wide-ranging and authoritative work, Chu reexamines the question of human purpose in light of the extraordinary developments of science and technology. Arguing that a deep understanding of our place in the universe is required to navigate the magnitude of the choices that lie ahead, he surveys human wisdom from both East and West, traces the evolutionary trajectory that has led to this point, and explores the potentials emerging on the scientific frontier. The book addresses the legitimate fears and concerns of “playing God” but embraces the possibility of transcending biological forms and becoming or creating entirely new life-forms.


Born and raised in China, and spending much of his adult life in America, Ted Chu is currently a clinical professor of economics at New York University (Abu Dhabi, UAE). His ongoing research is focused on globalization, frontiers of technology and institutions, and “posthuman economics,” inclusive of the philosophic and ethical dimensions of transhumanism. Chu graduated from Fudan University in Shanghai, and earned his PhD in economics at Georgetown University.

During his twenty-five years as a business economist, his work included corporate strategy, public policy research, multinational operations, and global financial markets–including roles as chief economist of General Motors and chief economist of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, one of of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds. Dr. Chu also held positions as macroeconomist for the World Bank and Arthur D. Little.

For the last fifteen years, his second career has been conducting independent research on the ethical and philosophical question of humanity’s place in the universe, with special reference to advanced technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, and nanotechnology. This focus was foreshadowed by his PhD thesis on the production efficiency frontier at Georgetown University. Chu has also read widely and deeply in evolutionary theory, history, politics, philosophy, and religious studies (East and West).

Dr. Chu is the founder of the nonprofit CoBe (Cosmic Being) Institute in Michigan, a senior scholar at ChangCe, a Beijing-based independent think tank, and a former president of Greater Washington Professional Forum. He has received a national award for dedicated community service and has served as a policy advisor for governments and many multinational institutions. Ted Chu’s extensive lines of interdisciplinary research have combined in-depth theoretical analysis and the fruits of practical, real-world experience.
