Spiritual Intelligence: The Ultimate Intelligence, Danah Zohar and Ian Marshall
4 Danah Zohar and Ian Marshall Spiritual Intelligence: The Ultimate Intelligence
Bloomsbury 245967 Great Britain 2001 0747536449 / 9780747536444 Softcover Good Condition At the beginning of the twentieth century psychologists discovered ways and means to measure intelligence that developed into an obsession with IQ. In the mid 1990's, Daniel Goleman popularised research into emotional intelligence, EQ, pointing out that EQ is a basic requirement for the appropriate use of IQ. In this century, there is enough collective evidence from psychology, neurology, anthropology and cognitive science to show us that there is a third 'Q', 'SQ' or Spiritual Intelligence. SQ is uniquely human and, the authors argue, the most fundamental intelligence. SQ is what we use to develop our longing and capacity for meaning, vision and value. It allows us to dream and to strive. It underlies the things we believe in, and the role our beliefs and values play in the actions that we take and the way we shape our lives. 324 pages.

5 Frank Barron, Alfonso Montuori, Anthea Barron [Editors] Creators on Creating: Awakening and Cultivating The Imaginative Mind
Jeremy P. Tarcher 243881 USA 1997 0874778549 / 9780874778540 Softcover Near Fine Condition Within the pages of Creators on Creating lies an impressively diverse collection of writings by world-famous artists, musicians, writers, scientists, and filmmakers who have provided us with joy, illumination, and profundity through their craft. In this anthology we learn how they foster and harness the power behind their awesome gift, and we comprehend the responsibility that accompanies it. Richard Feynman and Annie Dillard relate how they opened their minds to new insights, paths, and trajectories, and Federico Fellini and Henry Miller shed light on the passion that drove their creativity. Mary Shelley and Michel Foucault describe how they used their imagination to challenge existing assumptions, customs, and orders; Maya Angelou, Brian Eno, and Tony Kushner tell of the wisdom they garnered by working within a creative ecology of people, ideas, and experiences; Leonardo da Vinci and Frank Zappa reveal how they balanced freedom and exploration with hard work and mastery of their craft; and Laurence Olivier and Karen Finley give us the "courage to go naked." Inspirational and insightful, practical and idealistic, this collection is an invitation to engage some of the world's most artistic and ingenious people in a rewarding dialogue. 245 pages.

The Book of Tea, Kakuzo Okakura [Edited by Everett F. Bleiler]
11 Kakuzo Okakura [Edited by Everett F. Bleiler] The Book of Tea
Dover Publications 240226 New York 0486200701 / 9780486200705 Softcover Good Condition Kakuzo Okakura, who was known in America as a scholar, art critic, and Curator of Chinese and Japanese Art at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, directed almost his entire adult life toward the preservation and reawakening of the Japanese national heritage in art, ethics, social customs, and other areas of life in the face of the Westernizing influences that were revolutionizing Japan around the turn of the century. This modern classic is essentially an apology for Eastern traditions and feelings to the Western world not in passionate, oversentimental terms, but with a charm and underlying toughness which clearly indicate some of the enduring differences between the Eastern and Western mind. Okakura exhibits the distinctive "personality" of the East through the philosophy of Teaism and the ancient Japanese tea ceremony. This ceremony is particularly revelatory of a conservative strain in Japanese culture; its ideals of aesthetic tranquility and submission to the ways of the past find no parallel in the major cultural motifs of the West. Not only does he discuss the tea ceremony and its rigid formalities, and the cult and patterns of belief surrounding tea and tea-drinking, but Okakura also considers religious influences, origins, and history, and goes into the importance of flowers and floral arrangements in Japanese life their proper appreciation and cultivation, great tea-masters of the past, the tea-room with its air of serenity and purity, and the aesthetic and quasi-religious values pervading all these activities and attitudes. Okakura's English style was graceful, yet exceptionally clear and precise, and this book is one of the most delightful essay-volumes to the English language. It has introduced hundreds of thousands of American readers to Japanese thinking and traditions. This new, corrected edition, complete with an illuminating preliminary essay on Okakura's life and work, will provide an engrossing account for anyone interested in the current and central themes of Oriental life. 76 pages. Fading to spine. Inscription to previous owner on front endpaper. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

King Solomon's Ring, Konrad Z. Lorenz
13 Konrad Z. Lorenz King Solomon's Ring
TimeLife Books 246894 USA 1980 Reprint Softcover Very Good Condition Konrad Z. Lorenz Solomon, the legend goes, had a magic ring which enabled him to speak to the animals in their own language. Konrad Lorenz was gifted with a similar power of understanding the animal world. He was that rare beast, a brilliant scientist who could write (and indeed draw) beautifully. He did more than any other person to establish and popularize the study of how animals behave, receiving a Nobel Prize for his work. King Solomon's Ring, the book which brought him worldwide recognition, is a delightful treasury of observations and insights into the lives of all sorts of creatures, from jackdaws and water-shrews to dogs, cats and even wolves. Charmingly illustrated by Lorenz himself, this book is a wonderfully written introduction to the world of our furred and feathered friends, a world which often provides an uncanny resemblance to our own. A must for any animal-lover! 225 pages. Illustrator: Konrad Z. Lorenz. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Philosophy; Philosophy; Inventory No: 246894. Paperback
