  • The first volume of Intersection, a journal published by the Guild for Psychological Studies, features articles on religion, psychology, mythology, the arts, and the environment. This publication provides an extension to the seminar process which has been offered by the Guild throughout the world for over fifty years. The focus of these seminars is to study the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, not with a Christian perspective but with an attempt to uncover what might have been his own religious experience and his own historical self-estimate. This study, enhanced by the psychology of C.G. Jung, provides a model for the self-realization of the individual in the context of the world. Titles included in this Volume are: "A Changing God Image;" "Jesus: Myth and History;" "Out of Darkness;" "Drama and Religious Dialogue;" and "Earth Brows of Such Care." Poetry by Joan Gibbons and works in progress inviting reader response are also part of the volume. $10.00, Paper ISSN 1072-6225, 160 pages; 5½” x 8½”, 1991

A collection of articles and creative writing devoted to addressing the needs of our times—social, psychological, and religious—with prime attention to the individual's quest for wholeness. This endeavor is based on the conviction that human consciousness must be raised if the planet is to endure and that what Jesus tried to convey 2,000 years ago, illumined by subsequent wisdom seekers, is essential to achieve that goal. Titles included in this Volume are: "At the Intersection: The Oskar Schindler in Us;" "The Nothing is Older than God;" "Jesus and the Kingdom of God;" "The Aisle and the Nile;" "When There Is a Need for Hate;" Poetry of Nils Peterson; "Wry Slants on Straight Texts; Two Tales from the Journey;" "The One Who Fills the Skies with Light: A Parable." $10.00, Paper ISSN 1072-6226, 160 pages; 5½” x 8½”, 1997

  • By Sadie M. Gregory, Elizabeth Boyden Howes, and Dorothy Berkley Phillips The Study Guide, as used with The Choice Is Always Ours, facilitates a serious study of the religious Way. The Guide enables one to answer such basic questions as: what the religious Way is; what its conditions are; what it implies about the nature of man, of God, of the universe; whether it really "works"; and if so, something of how it works religiously and psychologically. The Choice is Always Ours was designed to help the seeker cut through theories about religion, set aside specified beliefs and dogmas for a time, and penetrate to the single core of the psychological-religious processes related to personal meaning and to Life itself. The Study Guide may come to serve as a "fill-in" for a "religious director" aiding the individual seeking in solitude; for two or three seeking together; or for larger groups. Therefore, it has been found a helpful supplement to personal depth analysis and group therapy. $5.00

  • The Relationship of Astrology, C.G. Jung and the Gospels By Luella Sibbald The author shares a lifetime of study and experience working with the inter-connection between astrology, C.G. Jung, and the synoptic Gospels. She says, "I have found so many things Jung talked about carried the same essence of truth that many of Jesus' statements did. It also became evident the Aquarian person is not truly Aquarian in most cases without knowing about the whole psyche--conscious and unconscious." Beginning with an overall look at astrology and the Great Year of the Zodiac, Ms. Sibbald leads the reader through a closer examination of the Piscean Age from which we are emerging and the Aquarian Age into which we are entering. She then looks at many examples from the synoptic Gospels where Jesus is a paradigm of the Aquarian person. A final chapter provides insight into the value of the astrological chart in therapy. $12.95  ISBN 0-917479-11-4, 1988 176 pages; 5" x 8"
