Rumi: Soul Fury: Rumi and Shams Tabriz on Friendship by Coleman Barks

Expected Release: Oct 14, 2014

A seminal collection of poetry from the medieval Sufi mystic—the most popular poet in America—and his “soul friend,” Shams Tabriz, which illuminate the evocative and deeply spiritual dimensions of friendship and love, compiled by the foremost Rumi translator and author of The Essential Rumi, Coleman Barks.

In this stunning translation, Coleman Barks brings to light Rumi’s theme of “love as religion”—that to reach its most profound depths requires mindful practice—as well as love in its most meaningful form: soul friendship. These short poems by both Rumi and Shams Tabriz, rich in beauty and spiritual insight, capture the delight and the impermanence of these bonds that pierce deep into the human mind, heart, and soul.

Rumi’s poetry is honored and enjoyed by many traditions and cultures. Today, many people from all walks of life have moved beyond traditional notions of spirituality, embracing a sense of the sacred that transcends a singular religion, belief, or text. Rumi’s poetry speaks to them and nourishes their divine yearnings. Joyous and contemplative, provocative and playful, Rumi: Soul Fury is a sterling addition to the modern Rumi oeuvre, and is sure to be embraced by his wide and devoted readership.

The Map of Heaven: How Science, Religion, and Ordinary People Are Proving the Afterlife ~ Eben Alexander

Pub Date Nov 4 2014


The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Proof of Heaven teams up with the sages of times past, modern scientists, and with ordinary people who have had profound spiritual experiences to show the reality of heaven and our true identities as spiritual beings.

When Proof of Heaven was published, some readers contacted Dr. Eben Alexander to argue that his near death experience was impossible. But many more have written to say his story resonated with them in profound ways. Because of what these people have told him, Dr. Alexander has come to realize that sharing his story has allowed people to believe what so many in ancient times knew: there is more to life, and to the universe, than this single earthly life.

Dr. Alexander met and heard from thousands of individuals whom his story has affected. He also studied what the world’s religious traditions, and its philosophers, have had to say about the soul’s survival of death, and he has been deeply surprised at how often those voices from the past synch up with what he heard from people today. In The Map of Heaven, he shares some of the stories that the people have told him and links them up with what the world’s spiritual traditions have to say about the journey of the soul.

Part metaphysical detective story, part manual for living, The Map of Heaven explores humankind’s spiritual history and the birth of modern science in the seventeenth century, showing how we forgot, and are now at last remembering, who we really are and what our true destiny really is.

CFC Keynote – Dr. Eben Alexander: Proof of Heaven | @marioninstitute

Join Dr. Alexander as he recounts his transcendental neardeath experience in the midst of severe bacterial meningitis, and his arduous trek toward understanding its profound lessons through a complete revision of everything he had come to believe about science, consciousness, spirituality, and the very nature of all existence.

Dr. Eben Alexander, a renowned academic neurosurgeon, spent 54 years honing his scientific worldview. He thought he knew how the brain and mind worked. A transcendental Near-Death Experience (NDE), in which he was driven to the brink of death and spent a week deep in coma from an inexplicable brain infection, changed all of that — completely! In his best-selling book, Proof of Heaven, A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife, Dr. Alexander explains that he was shocked to find the hyper-reality of that spiritual realm, which many had reported in NDEs. Dr. Alexander believes that together, science and spirituality will thrive in symbiosis, offering the most profound insight into fundamental Truth, yielding unimaginable power. By probing deeply into our own consciousness, we transcend the limitations of the human brain, and of the physical-material realm.

The Akashic Records – Aingeal Rose ( The justBernard Show RADIO )

The Akashic Record is a dimension of consciousness that contains a vibrational record of every soul and its journey. It is completely available everywhere. Location and time do not affect the Record. Human beings have been interacting consciously and unconsciously with this body of energies throughout history. These interactions have been both deliberate and accidental. Referred to in virtually every major traditional religion as the Book of Life and the Book of God’s Remembrance, this body of wisdom has been an ever-present source of spiritual support for people including those in our Western Judeao-Christian tradition.
On today’s broadcast Aingeal Rose O’Grady, discusses her remarkable ability to access these records which are reported to contain all knowledge of human experience and the history of the cosmos.
During the past 40 years Aingeal Rose O’Grady has acquired certifications in numerous healing modalities including Reiki (all levels to Master Teacher), Psychic Laser Therapy, Hypnotherapy including past life regression, Kathara Healing and more. She was a Tarot reader and teacher for 35 years and teaches transformational writing.
