The Perennial Way: New English Versions of Yoga Sutras, Dhammapada, Heart Sutra, Ashtavakra Gita, Faith Mind Sutra, and Tao Te Ching by Bart Marshall (Author)

In these timeless works, Patanjali, Buddha, Lao Tsu, and other great masters of the Way speak with resonant authority on man’s deepest questions, and offer explicit instructions for how an earnest seeker of Truth should conduct his or her search and life. These insightful new versions by Bart Marshall are presented without commentary. Clear and poetic, yet intensely faithful to the language and nuance of the originals, they invite direct communion with the masters, and vibrate with revelatory self-evidence that resonates in the mind and heart long after reading

Bart Marshall – Buddha at the Gas Pump Interview

Published on Nov 13, 2014
Bart Marshall describes his spiritual path as “self-guided eclectic.” It began with a death experience in Vietnam in 1968 and ended in 2004 on an airplane at 30,000 feet over the Atlantic as he returned from a workshop with Douglas Harding. In those intervening years he “turned over every rock” in his quest for a final answer, but counts three teachers as the most influential: Richard Rose, Nisargadatta Maharaj, and Douglas Harding.

He founded Self Inquiry Group (SIG) in Raleigh, North Carolina (www.selfinquiry.org), and for many years held weekly meetings before stepping back in 2013. Sometimes called “the reluctant guru” by those who know him, Bart nevertheless travels widely to speak when asked, and teaches retreats and intensives with Deborah Westmoreland (Conscious TV interview) events that have proven to be highly transformative for participants.

Bart is the author of The Perennial Way: New English Versions of Yoga Sutras, Dhammapada, Heart Sutra, Ashtavakra Gita, Faith Mind Sutra, and Tao Te Ching, and an upcoming book, Christ Sutras (Fall 2014), which contains the complete sayings of Jesus from all sources arranged as topical sermons. He is currently completing a book of essays on spiritual matters, Becoming Vulnerable to Grace.

 

Bart Marshall ‘Only This Emptiness’ – Interview by Iain McNay

Bart Marshall ‘Only This Emptiness’ – Interview by Iain McNay
In the Vietnam War a mortar landed nearby that blew Bart into a clear and brilliant blackness that, “Felt like home. I would have gladly stayed in that blackness, but instead I was brought back into a world I could no longer view in the same way.”
When he returned in 1968 he experimented with LSD, read everything he could find that might offer clues to what had happened to him, studied meditation and attended workshops. After 20 years he hit a wall as a seeker and then met the teacher Richard Rose whom he studied with for 5 years. It was after a weekend with Douglas Harding that a breakthrough finally happened… “Being the source of everything that is nothing – everything and nothing, only this emptiness.”

Gail Thackray’s Spiritual Journeys: Visiting John of God Gail Thackray (Author)

Experience miraculous healer, John of God, as seen through the eyes of medium Gail Thackray who sees, feels, and hears things that most “normal” people do not. Follow Gail on her personal journey to the spiritual healing center of John of God in Brazil.

Experience miraculous healings, supernatural activity, and astonishing psychic events. Gail gives a unique view of the powerful healings that occur in this blessed place. As a medium and healer herself, Gail initially thinks she is going to “assist” in the work here. She is told by the spirits, “you can leave your ego at the door, you’re here to be healed too!” She shares the personal details of her own healing which requires an intimate look at her relationships and life. As she starts to open up again, she finds her life taking unexpected twists and turns, and a budding romance appears.

It is in this quaint village in Brazil that Gail receives her most profound spiritual experience yet-a direct connection to Source. Overwhelmed with emotion, Gail asks the spirits if she can share this “feeling” with those back home. Upon returning to Los Angeles, Gail unexpectedly finds that her clients are now experiencing the healing energies from Brazil, receiving spontaneous healings through her live events and writings. The spirits in Brazil have taken Gail to a whole new level. Spiritually empowering yet refreshingly funny, Gail takes us on her otherworldly journey while dealing with everyday issues we can relate to.

Gail Thackray was raised in Yorkshire, England and prides herself on having kept her English down-to-earth sensibility. Her life changed at age forty when she discovered she was a medium and able to talk to spirits on the other side. Helping others connect to Source and to develop their own natural psychic abilities is her passion. Gail lectures at events worldwide, doing live appearances as a healer, medium, and educator. When at home in Los Angeles, she writes, lectures, and teaches about mediumship, healing, animal communication, manifesting, and other aspects of spirituality.
