Druze Reincarnation Narratives: Previous Life Memories, Discourses, and the Construction of Identities, edited by Gebhard Fartacek

Publication Details: Peter Lang, ISBN: 9783631855362-
Publish Date: July, 2021
Cover of Druze Reincarnation Narratives

From the back cover: This book follows the journey of Druze individuals who can remember their former lives and go on search for their previous families. For the Druze, an ethno-religious minority in the Middle East split between different nation-states, such cases and related discourses embody ambivalent bridges between personal, familial, and ethnic identities.

The contributions in this book, presented by Eléonore Armanet, Nour Farra Haddad, Gebhard Fartacek, Tobias Lang, Lorenz Nigst, and Salma Samaha, draw on ethnographic inquiries and illuminate the broad field of Druze conceptions of rebirth and group coherence against the backdrop of everyday challenges and recent conflicts in the Middle East and beyond.

The book is freely available on the publisher's website: Peter Lang.

Enlightenment: Memories of a Spiritual Circle, by Diana Morton

Publication Details: McFarlands Publishing, ISBN: 9780957510463.
Publish Date: July, 2021
Cover of Enlightenment: Memories of a Spiritual Circle

This book focuses on an intimate view of a small Physical Mediumship home-circle based on 10 years of transcriptions and audio tapes involved in a unique and special project. The ultimate goal was to fully materialise spirit forms in the light, using a new energy technique with which the Spirit world was excitedly experimenting. Very regrettably, the desired event never transpired completely. Apart from the new highly original format that this book well outlines, a direct line to Spirit was always maintained with advanced souls, predictions were given on the tenuous state of planet Earth and their purpose and wonderful expectations of their project are also skilfully presented in this dialogue.

Glimpses of Another World: Impressions and Reflections of an EVP Operator, by Anabela Cardoso

Publication Details: White Crow Books, ISBN: 9781786771339
Publish Date: May, 2021
Cover of Glimpses of Another World

From the publisher's website: Glimpses of Another World: Impressions and Reflections of an EVP Operator is Anabela Cardoso’s third work.

Following on from Electronic Voices: Contact with Another Dimension? and Electronic Contact with the Dead: What do the Voices Tell Us? in this book the author shares her thoughts and ruminations on Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC), the phenomena whereby allegedly deceased communicators relay messages and images to the living via radio equipment, televisions, computers, phones and other electronic devices. It’s a subject Anabela has devoted her life to in recent decades.

The communication is both fascinating and mysterious and the wisdom meted out by higher dimension human and nonhuman intelligences is profound. Glimpses of Another World is a memoir and a how-to-do ITC manual rolled into one and essential reading for those pondering the possibility of an afterlife.

J.B. Rhine. Letters 1923–1939: ESP and the Foundations of Parapsychology, edited by Barbara Ensrud and Sally Rhine Feather

Publish Date: April, 2021
Cover of J.B. Rhine. Letters 1923–1939: ESP and the Foundations of Parapsychology

From the publisher's website: During the 1930s a new approach to exploring human consciousness began at Duke University with Professor J. B. Rhine’s experimental research on extra-sensory perception, or ESP. His findings on telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition and psychokinesis challenged conventional disbelief. Rhine’s findings and his first popular book, New Frontiers of the Mind, ignited excitement and controversy—among not only scientists but the public at large.

Rhine’s letters chronicle his efforts to find reliable evidence of psychic ability, from the séance room to psychic animals and finally to a university research laboratory. Covering the years 1923–1939, they reveal a gripping story of groundbreaking research, told in the words of the main player as he worked with his team, subjects, critics and supporters alike.

Consciousness Unbound: Liberating Mind from the Tyranny of Materialism, edited by Edward F. Kelly and Paul Marshall,

Publication Details: Rowman & Littlefield, ISBN: 9781538139424.
Publish Date: March, 2021
Cover of Consciousness Unbound

From the publisher's website: Building on the groundbreaking research of Irreducible Mind and Beyond Physicalism, Edward Kelly and Paul Marshall gather a cohort of leading scholars to address the most recent advances in the psychology of consciousness. Currently emerging as a middle ground between warring fundamentalisms of religion andscience, an expanded science-based understanding of nature finally accommodates empirical realities of spiritual sorts while also rejecting rationally untenable overbeliefs.

The vision sketched here provides an antidote to the prevailing postmodern disenchantment of the world and demeaning of human possibilities. It not only more accurately and fully reflects our human condition but engenders hope and encourages ego-surpassing forms of human flourishing. It offers reasons for us to believe that freedom is real, that our human choices matter, and that we have barely scratched the surface of our human potentials. It also addresses the urgent need for a greater sense of worldwide community and interdependence - a sustainable ethos - by demonstrating that under the surface we and the world are much more extensively interconnected than previously recognized.

Premonitions of the Titanic Disaster, by Terry Keefe

Publication Details: Matador, ISBN: 9781800462342.
Publish Date: March, 2021
Cover of Premonitions of the Titanic Disaster

From the publisher's website: Within days of the widely-publicised disaster of 1912, stories began circulating of extraordinary omens and individuals who supposedly had supernatural premonitions of the disaster. Furthermore, four fictional works – one dating as far back as twenty-six years – came to be seen as anticipating the disaster.  

Between 1960 and 2006, five major commentators published extended analyses of the alleged premonitions, none of which is now easily accessible to an English readership. This book examines them all in detail. The whole treatment of the matter opens up fascinating questions concerning the paranormal, but also raises and leaves unresolved crucial issues specific to premonitions and how they can be legitimately examined. 

Readers are left to make their own judgement on Titanic premonitions.

The Mysteries of Reality: Dialogues with Visionary Scientists, edited by Gayle Kimball

Publication Details: John Hunt Publishing, ISBN: 9781789045307
Publish Date: March, 2021
Cover of The Mysteries of Reality

From the publisher's website: Courageous scientists challenge the dominant paradigm of reality. Why are they so brave and what does their research reveal? What is reality? Is there more than we know from our five senses? Vanguard scientists believe there is more than we see so they formulate a non-materialist paradigm that expands human potential, to include mind and matter interaction. Since going against the dominant worldview provokes opposition, this book explores the personal backgrounds of the scientists to find out why they are so courageous. We learn that there is another dimension that allows for enhanced abilities. Based on interviews conducted by Gayle Kimball, The Mysteries of Reality: Dialogues with Visionary Scientists reports on the current research and personal characteristics of visionaries from around the world.
