EXORCISM IN YOUR DAILY LIFE The Psychedelic Firesign Theatre At The Magic Mushroom - 1967 by The Firesign Theatre The Firesign Theatre began their long comedy career in 1966 as radio satirists based in Los Angeles. Before their debut LP "Waiting For The Electrician or Someone Like Him" appeared, Firesign began performing together live over the newly-hippified KRLA-AM. Direct from their sold-out broadcast performances in late 1967 at The Magic Mushroom, a popular rock club in Studio City, EXORCISM IN YOUR DAILY LIFE presents ten surreal classics in which the Four Firesigns undertake to play dozens of characters in stoned variations on prison escape movies, whaling sagas, jungle adventures, Roman epics, Sherlock Holmes, King Arthur and Ali Baba along with "educational" films and a day in the life of your TV set. Tokes and jokes take the four or five crazy guys a little higher by the end of every show. Some said Firesign itself was a new psychedelic drug! "The Firesign Theatre is a legal, if not quite natural, high." - Lew Segal, Entertainment World.

In Astrology: Understanding the Birth Chart, Kevin Burk takes you step-by-step from the core basics to the finer complexities of chart interpretation while avoiding sidetracks into obscure techniques and fuzzy thinking. As a teacher, Burk also understands that a real grasp of the subject entails more than just learning the techniques-it also involves grasping the underlying principles that make those techniques valid. Astrology: Understanding the Birth Chart is designed to be useful to all students of astrology, from beginners to more advanced practitioners, and will help you develop an integrated, synthesized approach to understanding the birth chart. You will discover how classical astrology can enrich your understanding of the planets, signs, and houses. You will explore the meaning of the Lunar Nodes, eclipses, the angles, retrograde planets, and aspect patterns. You will also learn how to identify key themes in the chart, and how to relate the different aspects and elements together to gain a holistic understanding of the birth chart-and of the individual. An up-to-date listing of astrological organizations and software programs is included that offers a wealth of resources for any astrologer. In short, this is a well-designed course that provides a solid foundation for anyone who is interested in practicing astrology quickly and with confidence. While many books at this level simply give you a set of techniques and ready-made interpretations, this book will give you a deeper grasp of an art and science that has its expression in the world around us, but its roots in the invisible world of primal origins.

Category: Religion

The series Religion and Society (RS) contributes to the exploration of religions as social systems – both in Western and non-Western societies; in particular, it examines religions in their differentiation from, and intersection with, other cultural systems, such as art, economy, law and politics. Due attention is given to paradigmatic case or comparative studies that exhibit a clear theoretical orientation with the empirical and historical data of religion and such aspects of religion as ritual, the religious imagination, constructions of tradition, iconography, or media. In addition, the formation of religious communities, their construction of identity, and their relation to society and the wider public are key issues of this series.

Using a new language of energy based on the ancient “four elements” and in harmony with that used by the more advanced healing arts, renowned author Stephen Arroyo here explores how astrology as a language of energy can be astoundingly accurate and useful in illuminating individuals’ energy exchange in all close relationships. The preface, author’s note, introduction, and early chapters of Person-to-Person Astrology lay the groundwork for serious consideration of astrology as a significant discipline. The following chapters detail the influence of the four elements—Fire, Earth, Water, Air—on the 12 signs, with a particular emphasis on the rising sign (Ascendant). The author shows readers how to experiment by comparing birth charts, and explains, through detailed descriptions, people’s psychological motivations and needs based on the positions of their Moon, Venus, and Mars. Appendices include astrological definitions, keywords, and sign tables that allow readers quick access to the basics. Written in the author’s trademark clear, accessible style, Person-to-Person Astrology presents a new approach to finding fulfillment in any kind of relationship. From the Trade Paperback edition.

An Alternative History of Radio in America

Boring DJs who never shut up, and who don't even pick their own records. The same hits, over and over. A constant stream of annoying commercials. How did radio get so dull? Not by accident, contends journalist and historian Jesse Walker. For decades, government and big business have colluded to monopolize the airwaves, stamping out competition, reducing variety, and silencing dissident voices. And yet, in the face of such pressure, an alternative radio tradition has tenaciously survived. Rebels on the Air explores these overlooked chapters in American radio, revealing the legal barriers established broadcasters have erected to ensure their dominance. Using lively anecdotes drawn from firsthand interviews, Walker chronicles the story of the unsung heroes of American radio who, despite those barriers, carved out spaces for themselves in the spectrum, sometimes legally and sometimes not. Walker's engaging, meticulous account is the first comprehensive history of alternative radio in the United States. From the unlicensed amateurs who invented broadcasting to the community radio movement of the 1960s and 1970s, from the early days of FM to today's micro radio movement, Walker lays bare the hidden history of broadcasting. Above all, Rebels on the Air is the story of the pirate broadcasters who shook up radio in the 1990sand of the new sorts of radio we can expect in the next century, as the microbroadcasters crossbreed with the even newer field of Internet broadcasting.

The Psychology of Humans as Spiritual Beings

Cosmopsychology The Psychology of Humans as Spiritual Beings Cosmopsychology assumes that human beings are essentially spiritual beings who are multi-dimensional, composed of many parts and connected to many dimensions of the Cosmos. It has been defined as astrology, as the study of psychospiritual development, and as the psychology of extraterrestrial beings. Cosmopsychology is the study of the relationship between the mind and the Cosmos. Cosmopsychology refers both to the correspondences between the human mind and the external universe and to the growth or evolution of the mind as it moves to higher forms of consciousness. It examines those parts, links, and dimensions that are not found in traditional, academic psychology. Cosmopsychology provides insights into your personality and your destiny through the contributions of astrology, numerology, the I Ching, Jungs Analytical psychology, Hartmanns Ego psychology, Bernes Transactional Analysis, Assagiolis Psychosynthesis, Hermeticism, Idealism, New Thought, and the Perennial Philosophy. The mysteries of karma are laid out as they are found in the ancient Indian philosophy of Vedanta. Psychology was built on classical physics. Cosmopsychology is built on quantum physics, the holographic universe, string theory, M-theory, and F-theory. Physics has come full circle, returning to the science of vibrations and the philosophy of idealism as taught by Pythagoras, Socrates, and Plato. Everything is connected both spatially and temporally. At this deep level of Being, consciousness choices what manifests. Cosmopsychology encompasses the nature of consciousness, meditation, karma, and rebirth and examines their roles in Individuation, Self-Actualization, and Self-Realization.

What's next for New York? Is it cooking or cooling? Brimming with vitality or sinking into somnolence? Will it retain its edgy preeminence as global crucible, the place par excellence where the world's peoples come to clash and fuse and create the future? Will the forces of suburbanization--now sprawling and malling their way into town--tame the raucous metropolis, subdue its contrarian politics, make of it just another outlet for Disneyfied culture, big-box commerce, and franchise food? Or is something altogether new busy being born at the contested urban-suburban frontier? Only two things are sure: New York is in rapid motion, and this book is a great guide to where it might be headed. Its diverse array of observations--written by some of the country's smartest (and wittiest) analysts and activists--are incisive and accessible, provocative and entertaining, perfect for an urban studies course and for anyone interested in pondering the past and future of cities.
