    Stripping away the known and seeing reality for what it is, rather than for what our thoughts represent it to be, provides the theme for this compelling conversation. The late theoretical physicist David Bohm addresses the nature of thought and thinking, and how our conditioned minds become subordinate to the way we think.

    Laura says: "a pioneer in quantum & mind"
    "a pioneer in quantum & mind"
    Overall

    David Bohm was a student working with Einstein and many of the physics luminaries at the time quantum mechanics were new. in his phd dissertation he was first to open the doors addressing "what does it mean to have an 'observer-influenced universe' ". this means he said if we affect the universe, if my thoughts affect reality, then what?
    in geek speak - he was offering an opposing view to the popular "copenhagen interpretation" back when that was still new.
    much of bohm's career was spent addressing our psychological realities and he even became close with krishnamurthi.
    the man is an astounding intellect. i like to listen to him as he is trying to bring concepts beyond most of us down to simple terms. it's worth
    re-listening as the ideas of the quantum reality - chopra/braden - many others propounding - come from bohm, who thought and lived it for over 50 yrs.

    Dr. Bernie Siegel guides you through two individual and empowering meditations, each a combination of guided imagery and auto-hypnosis. These inspiring inner journeys are designed to assist you in dealing with negative thoughts, past hurts, stress, grief, and other conditions that can contribute to your lack of well-being. Bernie┬┐s calm, resonant voice gently helps you experience your own unique qualities, as well as your inner and outer beauty.

    Vicki says: "Helps me to feel more confident."
    "Dr Bernie rocks ---"
    Overall

    I just bought this and really like it. Dr Bernie has a soft and reassuring voice - first of all you can tell he's not lying to you (no smarmy admin type-not a ripoff investment banker or CEO).
    he is calm, soft, gentle and logical so that what he says seems to be that kind of knowledge you've always known and are just remembering, or is guidance from a friend you trust.
    i will be buying others, and i will listen again and let you know

  • The Tarot and You

    One of the oldest tools for revealing the territory of the unconscious, the Tarot has been used for centuries to tap deep levels of self-knowledge. Here, Arrien, a native Basque and anthropologist, speaks of universal archetypes in the Tarot, and how these archetypes can be used for self-understanding. The power of symbols and how they impact our life so much of the time is also covered by Arrien in this expressive dialogue.

    Laura says: "disapointing so far"
    "disapointing so far"
    Overall

    i've used/studied the tarot for over 30 yrs. was looking forward to learning more-breadth or depth.
    turns out this format- radio interview
    a) has way too much air space filled in with music. i hope that's not typical, but if so after i hear all i bought from this program type, i won't buy again.
    b) the first 16 min are dead-space, how did you find the tarot, and then undocumentable history
    and symbols - circle, square, triangle, spiral, equilateral cross.
    the talk is less than 1 hr, so now 1/4 of it is filled with fluff. ....
    i will listen to the rest in a couple of days, and update the review, but if you don't know tarot, this so far won't tell you anything.
    and
    if you do know tarot so far this won't tell you anything.
    the same interviewer and speaker have several other talks so i will be learning more.

    Pema Chodron, one of the West's most beloved teachers of Buddhism, makes the Tibetan vajrayana tradition accessible in today's world. Now three of her most popular teachings are available in one audiobook set.

    Apryl says: "Great"
    "amazingly informative insightful inspiring"
    Overall

    i've had some of pema's books for years and never really did more than skim... then i heard parts of her in previews here at audible. since them am buying all i can to hear and learn from her.
    she's amazingly kind and compassionate.
    my ONLY critique is that she is painful to see - she's so dehydrated i just want to pour her a glass of water...
    tangible compassion explained so one can follow and learn to do it oneself

    Rosalyn L. Bruyere spent seven years collaborating with Dr. Valerie Hunt on a project to find scientific documentation of human energy fields. This study provided evidence that not only do charka energies exist, but that they are connected to our sensations, feelings, and thoughts. Discover how to interpret the ebb and flow of the Chakra energies, and you will come to a new understanding of how the body functions and how you can participate in your own healing.

    Max says: "Short & very informative"
    "i want more"
    Overall

    this is excellent but disappointly brief, even at an hour.
    i've listened twice so far and really enjoyed; would like to hear more detail now on each of the chakras - a) normal B) how to develop, enhance; c) how to know if chakra is stultified

    Ask anyone today "Who is the world's best-selling fiction writer?", and you're likely to hear "J.K. Rowling" or "Dan Brown". But check the Guinness Book of World Records, and you'll find that the honor belongs to Agatha Christie, whose 78 mysteries have sold an estimated two billion copies in more than 45 languages, and have added two iconic investigators to our culture: Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple.

    Marie-Elizabeth Finamore says: "Sales pitch"
    "too short - teaser succeeds"
    Overall

    wonderful snippets about agatha and her characters.
    reminded me once again why i love them, AND now i'm tempted to go find the audio books. OH for an ordered list so i could listen from her first story
