Songs from the Mountain
The Four Directions to Spiritual Breakthrough– Vision, Courage, Wisdom, Love
Songs from the Mountain is a guide to recovering the sacred in everyday life. Blending the inspiration of creation-centered mystics, Native American wisdom, Christian tradition, and her own knowledge of depth psychology, the author shows how ritual and daily spiritual practice can heal our most common psychic hurts. This book is for anyone who has emotional wounds that won't heal, relationships that won't behave, and self-limiting attitudes that defy change. –St. Martin's Press
Songs from the Mountain stirred my soul and awakened something deep inside of me. I felt as though I didn't just read this book, I lived in it. Songs from the Mountain is truly inspirational and has given me a reference point in exploring my own spirituality. –Leanne Chutchik, British Columbia
Djohariah Toor invites the reader to journey with her into a psychology of the Sacred. Through her understanding of Christian mysticism, Native American teachings, and her own experience of the vision quest, she takes us into the depths inside ourselves. This book was very important to me; it led me to my own vision quest, and to the well within myself. –Dr. Rolf Frederkin, Bayreuth, Germany
A Wilder God
A work in progress. Please contact to preorder your copy.
Love and passion are the silk road of human nature. Eros is a symbol for that, and we are fascinated by the concept, but how can we relate to it consciously? Why does its powerful energy create such lively hopes, yet wind up so consistently in the wrong bath-house? We talk as if we understand love, but divorce statistics show otherwise. We talk about being passionate, yet our passions, if not conscious, can wound the soul. We talk about divine love, but forget to feel or practice it’s extravagant nature. And religion, once stripped of its mystical nature, has become like a delicious fruit we never really taste, most of us throw out the fruit and eat the peal.
A blend of Jungian depth psychology and East West mysticism, women’s stories and real-life challenges related to eros, A Wilder God explores the rift between love and power that lies at the core of the eros split in Western culture. It is also an in-depth look at the personal and generational wounds to the feminine that distort love (both human and divine) in our family of origin. The mother-daughter relationship and its conscious and unconscious aspects—begins to unravel the work of healing the heart outlined in this book. Subsequent chapters take us deeper into the psychic and spiritual tasks that animate the mystics path.
Cultivating an abundant relationship with our deepest desire is what this book is about. To do that we must understand the essential passion at the heart of each of us, which is to make meaning out of what we do, how we live, how we relate to others, and to the sacred feminine in each of us. And for women, it means we must learn how to relate to a God we can call Mother. This is what feeds and gives wings to our extravagance.
This book will appeal to anyone looking to resurrect the creative power of love, the friendship between body and soul, the concept of a God that loves the whole of creation, and the practice of a passionate life grounded in earthy wisdom...
