Bliss of Spirit

Ancient Eight is based on sacred rites involved in ancient Hebrew shamanic ceremonies as recounted in the Torah, Talmud, Midrash, and Kabbalah. Miriam has translated these long-forgotten rites into meditative chants and a step-by-step guided practice outlined in the album insert which incorporates these rites in movement and visualization. Each chant is a mantra that helps to rouse consciousness to the healing and spirit-awakening qualities of its corresponding rite. The chants and music on this album have been used for massage therapy, healing sessions, soul-retrieval ceremonies, and ideal for anyone seeking a soothing, calming and safe way to journey deep within.

The Successful Nature of Failure

The Successful Nature of Failure: A presentation by Rabbi Gershon Winkler and Ravi Miriam Maron

In this DVD presentation of chant, movement and wisdom, Gershon employs humor and depth to impart ancient Judaic teachings and stories to heal our discomfort with dysfunction. Failure, he says, is an integral component of lasting success.

"Not necessarily your own success," he says. "But even if your failure brings success to others, that's quite an accomplishment!" Ravi Miriam in turn offers us deep Kabbalistic wisdom from ancient sources, and how to apply it to our everyday lives. She also leads us in sacred chant and entrancing movement which she created based on these sources.

Judeo-Christian-Fiction

NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK!!

The Judeo-Christian Fiction
By Gershon Winkler

"Though admittedly not totally unconnected, the religion of Jesus (Judaism) and Christianity are so basically different in form, purpose and orientation that it would be historically unsafe to derive the latter directly from the former and attribute the changes to a straightforward doctrinal evolution." -- Professor Geza Vermes in The Religion of Jesus the Jew (Fortress Press: 1993), p. 214

Probably the most proliferated and most successful deception ever perpetrated is the Judeo-Christian fiction. There is nothing Judaic about Christianity, and nothing Christian about Judaism. This book shatters an historic fabrication that has for centuries attempted to demonize the Jewish people and rob them of their rich and ancient heritage by misappropriating their Sacred Scriptures and suppressing their aboriginal traditions and mindset.

Travels with the Evil Inclination
by Gershon Winkler

Travels with the Evil Inclination by Gershon Winkler is a tongue-in-cheek auto-biographical account of the unusual life journey of an ultra-Orthodox Jewish boy who struggles with his libido as he slowly evolves into an ultra-Flexidox renegade rabbi cavorting across rural America. From yeshiva boy to infantryman, from Orthodox rabbi to redneck ranch hand, the author both amuses and touches our hearts with his personal grappling around his passion for his tradition and his libido’s campaign to divert that passion elsewhere. Based on the author’s true personal life story, Travels with the Evil Inclination is a  humorous and sometimes exaggerated tale of personal spiritual dissolution and re-emergence along roads less traveled.

Magickal Judaism
by Jennifer Hunter

In Magickal Judaism, Jennifer Hunter has resurrected the long-lost dimension of a very ancient tradition that has been conveniently shoved under the rug for centuries due to religious politics and prejudicial cultural suppression aimed at Jews and Judaism.This fascinating work demonstrates how Judaism was never antithetical to Paganism and Shamanism but has actually been an integral part of both. Drawing from ancient Jewish source texts, as well as from interviews with contemporary Jewish practitioners of magick, Jennifer offers us an enriching exploration of the more enlivening features of Judaism that relate to the magical dance of earth and spirit and of the common ground the Jewish tradition shares with most other aboriginal spirit paths. Magickal Judaism is not only intriguing to read, it is an important work that will raise brows, open doors and shatter myths. It is! a timely book that brings Judaism out of the closet and challenges the standard hum-drum of the Judeo-Christian fiction.

The Jewish Alchemists : A History and Source Book

Raphael Patai

In this monumental work, Raphael Patai opens up an entirely new field of cultural history tracing Jewish alchemy from antiquity to the nineteenth century. Until now there has been little attention given to the significant role that Jews played in the field of alchemy. Here, drawing on an enormous range of previously unexplored sources, Patai reveals that Jews were major players in what was for centuries one of humanity's most compelling intellectual obsessions.

The Hebrew Goddess

Raphael Patai

Was the Hebrew God a Woman? The Bible gives the impression that all ancient Jews shared a common belief system ... with only an occasional group straying from the fold. But the evidence paints a different picture. As Dr. Patai states, "... it would be strange if the Hebrew-Jewish religion, which flourished for centuries in a region of intensive goddess cults, had remained immune to them." Archaeologists have uncovered Hebrew settlements where the goddesses Asherah and Astarte-Anath were routinely worshipped. And in fact, we find that for about 3,000 years, the Hebrews worshipped female deities which were later eradicated only extreme pressure of the male-dominated priesthood.
