The complete first season of RUNE combines four episodes of this thrilling series into one volume to deliver an action-packed novel on a grand scale. At the stroke of midnight on his 18th birthday, Jacob Rune undergoes a painful transformation that brings forth the appearance of strange markings on his body and a dog claiming knowledge of the change. A college professor of ancient languages and Jake's concerned girlfriend join the duo to strike out in search of five scrolls that will enable them to close the portal to a dimension that was breached thousands of years earlier. In this ritual, the demons of this world will be compelled to return to the hell from whence they came. At every turn, relentless hordes are hunting them, determined to tear the skin from Jake's back. These blood-thirsty demons are under the control of Seraphine, a young woman who is possessed by the most powerful of the ancient ones. It is a heart-pounding race against time to find the scrolls and complete their mission while the fate of all humanity hangs in the balance. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Foster.

Eat Sh*t and Die: Radical Rehab for Food Junkie...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In Eat Sh*t and Die, best-selling author and weight-loss guru David Clark takes a deep dive into the epicenter of the food-addition crisis. At times funny, others times starkly serious, David delivers the unvarnished truth about why we overeat in his blunt and fearlessly honest style. He makes the case for how the food and the fitness industries have failed us and how today’s food manufacturers conspire to turn us into addicts by hijacking our minds and decimating our bodies.  But David doesn’t just educate on how we become addicted or placate the listener by offering up a new-age diet plan. Instead, in the Radical Rehab section of this audiobook, he guides the listener through a 10-step ritual designed to reprogram the mind, repair the body, and inspire a complete personal transformation.   In his third audiobook, Clark delivers with a refreshing message that needs to be heard by all people feeling helpless to change their destructive ways. David has both the resume and confidence required to challenge the listener to take personal responsibility while at the same time displaying incredible compassion for those struggling. Having transformed his own life from bloated 320-pound alcoholic to elite athlete, he understands exactly what it takes to change, and he will not stop until you have everything you need to create a new life for yourself so amazing that you’d have to be an idiot to walk away from it. 1.

Weaving Metaphors, Weaving Cosmos
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Weaving Metaphors, Weaving Cosmos is a history of ancient Peruvian textiles created between 300 BCE and 1540 CE with discontinuous warps and wefts (DWW), as well as an interpretation of their meaning. DWW technology, not developed at any other time in the history of weaving world wide, produces a patterned plain-weave cloth in which the warps and wefts are equal, visible partners, a visual metaphor for the paired principles of balance and reciprocity, "ayni" in Quechua, the language of the Inka and traditional present-day highlanders. In general, DWW textiles appear to have been reserved for ritual use, funerary rites in particular in which case they were part of a mummy bundle, placed in the tomb independent of the body, or hung on the walls of the tomb. In ritual contexts, DWW textiles can be seen as derived from shamanic practices, most notably transformation rites and visionary experiences. It is the contention of this study that ancient Peruvian principles, viewed as essential to the health of the cosmos, and concepts, such as the interconnectedness of all in the universe, can be read in all aspects of DWW textiles and are a shamanic understanding of the order of things.

Artistic Representations of Gender
41,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This monograph analyzes how the construction and arrangement of space and the identification of symbolisms and meanings of motifs on dwellings and scarifications on the bodies and faces of the indigenes of Sirigu reflect their ideologies about feminine and masculine ideals. It also compares and contrasts motifs on dwellings and scarification marks on Sirigu people. The monograph also assesses the impact of innovative transformation or socio-cultural change on the arts of Sirigu. The monograph seeks to answer the following questions: What is the relationship between traditional domestic dwellings and the human body? What are the functions and symbolisms of parts of the dwelling and the meanings of motifs on them? What is the relationship between facial and body scarifications, and wall motifs on traditional domestic dwellings? How does the allocation of domestic spaces influence gender roles? What is the importance of domestic dwellings in the ritual performances of the people and how do they influence gender? and, What is the influence of change on the traditional arts of Sirigu?

Reading with an "I" to the Heavens
19,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book examines the collection of prayers known as the Qumran Hodayot (= Thanksgiving Hymns) in light of ancient visionary traditions, new developments in neuropsychology, and post-structuralist understandings of the embodied subject. The thesis of this book is that the ritualized reading of reports describing visionary experiences written in the first person "I" had the potential to create within the ancient reader the subjectivity of a visionary which can then predispose him to have a religious experience. This study examines how references to the body and the strategic arousal of emotions could have functioned within a practice of performative reading to engender a religious experience of ascent. In so doing, this book offers new interdisciplinary insights into meditative ritual reading as a religious practice for transformation in antiquity.

Natural Symbols
23,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

'Natural Symbols' is one of the most important works of modern anthropology. First published over thirty years ago, the work presaged many of the most controversial areas of intellectual debate, exploring themes such as the social meaning of natural symbols and the image of the body in society and religious cosmology. Bringing anthropology into the realm of religion, 'Natural Symbols' enters into the ongoing debate in religious circles surrounding meaning and ritual. Written against the backdrop of student uprisings of the late 1960s, the book took seriously the revolutionary fervor of the times, but instead of seeking to destroy the rituals and symbols that can govern and oppress, Mary Douglas saw instead that if transformation were needed, it could only be made possible through better understanding. Expressed with clarity and dynamism, the passionate analysis which follows from this remains one of the most insightful and rewarding studies of human behavior that has been written.

Mask and Performance in Greek Tragedy
125,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Why did Greek actors in the age of Sophocles always wear masks? David Wiles provides the first book-length study of this question. He surveys the evidence of vases and other monuments, arguing that they portray masks as part of a process of transformation, and that masks were never seen in the fifth century as autonomous objects. Wiles goes on to examine experiments with the mask in twentieth-century theatre, tracing a tension between the use of masks for possession and for alienation, and he identifies a preference among modern classical scholars for alienation. Wiles declines to distinguish the political aims of Greek tragedy from its religious aims, and concludes that an understanding of the mask allows us to see how Greek acting was simultaneously text-centred and body-centred. This book challenges orthodox views about how theatre relates to ritual, and provides insight into the creative work of the actor.

The York Grand Lodge
38,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This new book by award winning Masonic author Dr David Harrison tells the story of the staunchly independent Grand Lodge of All England at York and its rise and fall during the eighteenth century; looking at its leaders, its ritual and its influence on modern Freemasonry. The book also puts forward new evidence that reveals that the York Grand Lodge may have survived longer than originally thought, and how it may have influenced that other northern rebellious body of Freemasons - The Wigan Grand Lodge. Any one that enjoyed Harrison's previous works The Transformation of Freemasonry and especially The Liverpool Masonic Rebellion and the Wigan Grand Lodge will certainly enjoy this new book, which aims to enlighten readers in respect to the more independent styles of eighteenth century Freemasonry.
