Swedenborg's Might Contribution to the Welfare of the Soul
by Philip W. Groves
|Sydney-based lecturer and teacher, Dr. Philip Groves qualified in the fields of psychology, chemistry, divinity and naturopathy and extensively studied ancient languages and world religions over many years. The works of the 18th Century Swedish scientist and seer, Emanuel Swedenborg, and of the Armenian mystic G. I. Gurdjieff (1866 - 1949) were particularly central in his desire to relate the natural world to the world of the soul, and in his search for what is good, true and real. He readily shared his findings with others similarly motivated. This book is a compilation of eight lectures presented over a period of 11 years in Sydney including "Swedenborg's View of the Individual", "Swedenborg's Spiritual Psychology", "Myths, Symbols and Parables", Phantasy and Reality", "Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs", "Spiritual Biology", and "Swedenborg's Vision: A Quantum Leap in Time". It is well illustrated together with eight exquisite full colour mandala plates.|
A Scientist Explores Spirit: A Biography of Emanuel Swedenborg
by George F. Dole & Robert H. Kirven
Please note: colour of cover may vary
|The authors present a valuable introduction to the life and spiritual thought of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688 – 1772), the Swedish scientist and statesman who underwent an extraordinary religious experience at age 55. He spent his last twenty-seven years moving between this plane of existence and the spiritual dimension, which he explored and observed using his scientific skills. This resulted in the production of thirty volumes detailing his visionary experiences. Richly illustrated, the book includes a chronology of Swedenborg’s life, a bibliography of his works and an outline of his key spiritual concepts.|
||Tunnel to Eternity: Beyond Near-Death
by Leon Rhodes
|From the experience of dying to awakening to
tunnels, bright lights, unfamiliar realms, life reviews, and different
levels of consciousness, Leon Rhodes takes the reader on a great
adventure into the unknown. Leon Rhodes, an executive member of the
International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS), recounts the
stories of near-death experiences (NDEs) that people have shared with
him over the years. The profound changes in their lives after their
discoveries are chronicled as a source of inspiration. In addition, the
fascinating parallels between NDEs and the spiritual world, described
over two hundred years ago by Emanuel Swedenborg, provide many insights
into the transition from this life to the next world. Rhodes' unique
Swedenborgian perspective broadens the discussion over the significance
of the near-death phenomenon.
|The Presence of Other
Worlds: The Psychological/Spiritual Findings of Emanuel Swedenborg
by Wilson Van Dusen
When piecing together clues drawn from his own personal experience, his work with mental patients and his study of Eastern and Western philosophy, well-regarded US clinical psychologist, Wilson Van Dusen, discovered much in common with the spiritual findings of Emanuel Swedenborg. A central theme in these findings involves the need to consider the implications of living a useful and thoughtfully directed life; this remarkable book was the author’s way of sharing what had been opened up to him.
The Presence of Other Worlds shows how Swedenborg’s personal experiences radiate with insights about psychological and spiritual developments that are relevant to modern-day seekers. It is an account of the monumental journey of an 18th century scientist and philosopher into the depths of his own mind and to spiritual worlds beyond. Since its publication in 1974, it has been hailed as a passport for all spiritual voyagers into the human psyche and the inner sanctum of the afterlife.
“The Presence of Other Worlds is an excellent introduction to Swedenborg’s works, especially for readers with an interest in psychology and a mystical turn of mind.” – from the foreword by Dr. Raymond Moody
