For those who have a gnawing sense that they should be engaged in a spiritual discovery practice, but are overwhelmed by the dizzying array of books, teachers, techniques and methods available, Warter offers a good place to start. The author of “Recovery of the Sacred” (1995), Warter performs a useful service for the beginning spiritual seeker by providing a simple and concise overview of the “many, many techniques of the sacred.” Included are brief descriptions of many of the popular practices such as yoga, meditation, prayer, tai chi and journal writing.

Yet this book, Warter's fourth in English, cannot be characterized as an anthology. Warter, a trained physician known internationally for his work in transpersonal psychotherapy, invites the reader to explore the question “Who Am I?” by seeking the “light within” through various mental exercises, which make up the majority of his 101 ways to the soul. For example, in one exercise, called “The Gift,” Warter suggests visualizing opening a beautifully wrapped gift that contains a golden orb of light. The light has “everything you need to live on planet Earth, including wisdom, goodness and the skill to handle whatever happens to you. You are self-contained in this luminous vehicle.” Warter directs the reader to let the golden light dissolve into the top of his head and carry it with him throughout the day to remember his inner wealth.

Certainly a reader can find a lifetime of spiritual challenges in this book, particularly if the reader elects to take an “expressway to the light” by practicing one or all of the virtues: honesty and courage, discipline, kindness, gratitude, compassion, forgiveness, patience, generosity and simplicity. (These comprise nine of the 101 ways, and if practiced according to Warter's guidelines, could trip up all but the saints.) It's likely, however, that many readers will find a practice or two that intrigues them enough to delve beyond Warter's brief introduction.

While this is a very useful book for the novice seeker, the experienced practitioner could also benefit from Warter's gentle, yet deep, probing of the psyche, either by enhancing a current program or finding a new dimension to explore. Warter is a helpful guide along the path. (March)

Recovery of the Sacred

Lessons in Soul Awareness
$12.00 Autograph copy
by Carlos Warter M.D., Ph.D

Every human being is born with a conscious connection to the sacred. Yet, over time, life in a fast-paced, industrialized society can disconnect us from our spiritual essence leaving us bereft, thirsting for wholeness, love meaning and purpose. This fascinating book chronicles the journey of physician Carlos Warter, whose spiritual initiation into the traditions of Shamanism and Sufism leads him away from the straight, narrow, uncompassionate path of high-tech medicine toward the real soul of healing. Dr. Warter's spellbinding story is woven with remarkable coincidences and near-magical experiences which bring forth important lessons on the soul of healing, the impermanent essence of the human condition and how to awaken our true selves. The trail leads you across three continents-from Peru's mystical Macchu Picchu to the deserts of Morocco and Arizona.

One can find his or her own path to the sacred life through Dr. Warter's experiences. Exercises in each chapter lift the reader to a new dimension in soul recovery. Recovery of the Sacred picks up where the Celestine Prophecy left off.

The Soul Remembers: A Parable of Spiritual Transformation

$12.00 Autograph copy

What is the purpose of human life?
Who am I?
What is the reality of this world I find myself in?
Why do I find myself in the midst of certain troublesome circumstances?
Who among us has not pondered some of these questions at times?

On the outermost level this book is a teaching metaphor similar to those used in all sacred traditions. But behind the parable is a cosmic perspective on essence, individuality and relationships; a view of human purpose, soul design and divine direction that leads to a new look at the origin of suffering, healing and the evolutionary dimensional shift. Through the voices of archetypes of consciousness the book subliminally explores paths to power, love, beauty, strength and mysticism.

It moves through different dimensions of reality while simultaneously focusing on the mental, emotional and physical aspects of life as instruments of expression that can be tuned to a higher purpose.

The SOUL Remembers is the expression of a spiritual journey that has assisted thousands in their own process of self-remembrance, encouraging them to live more deeply and become personally responsible for co-creating heaven on Earth.
