A guide to shamanic practices for those seeking to develop psychic powers. Teaches how to access the collective soul, discover the aura, develop shamanic breath, discover relationships with power animals, and engage in a vision quest. These lessons culminate with a trance-state journey induced by the rhythmic drumming session on the accompanying CD.
In an age when computers process immense amounts of information by the manipulation of sequences of 1s and 0s, it remains a frustrating mystery how prehistoric Inka recordkeepers encoded a tremendous variety and quantity of data using only knotted and dyed strings. Yet the comparison between computers and khipu may hold an important clue to deciphering the Inka records. In this book, Gary Urton sets forth a pathbreaking theory that the manipulation of fibers in the construction of khipu created physical features that constitute binary-coded sequences which store units of information in a system of binary recordkeeping that was used throughout the Inka empire.
Urton begins his theory with the making of khipu, showing how at each step of the process binary, either/or choices were made. He then investigates the symbolic components of the binary coding system, the amount of information that could have been encoded, procedures that may have been used for reading the khipu, the nature of the khipu signs, and, finally, the nature of the khipu recording system itself-- emphasizing relations of markedness and semantic coupling. This researchconstitutes a major step forward in building a unified theory of the khipu system of information storage and communication based on the sum total of construction features making up these extraordinary objects.

Soul on Fire is a magical collection of stories describing the awakening of spiritual powers of an Episcopal priest turned shaman - powers that have usually been ascribed to Eastern masters of traditional shamans. It is about the quest for ''lost knowledge'' and the powers that Christ himself once promised. Within these pages we learn about the ''Path of Return'' to our wondrous Earth as a means by which we can reclaim our original soul powers. Soul on Fire is an inspirational guide and must-read for long-time seekers and those just beginning their journey alike. It may just be in a genre of its own. At a time when old modalities no longer seem to be working for many people, the stories in this book reveal a different way of thinking, feeling, and being. You won't be able to read this book and still perceive the world in the same way.
