Hidden Files : Law Enforcement's True Case Stories of the Unexplained and Paranormal
by Sue Kovach
Ghosts, UFOs, and other reports of paranormal phenomena often test the bounds of credibility, but can such reports be easily dismissed when the witness is an officer of the law trained to make calm, detailed observations under the most stressful situations? In Hidden Files Sue Kovach presents some of law enforcement's most intriguing (and often repressed) files from around the United States. For example, while looking for a woman and her son, Deputy Rich Strasser believes he was guided by the spirit of the deceased mother to find the wreckage of her car and her young son still alive inside it. Officer Ron Chancey recounts being chased by a boomerang-shaped flying object in Florida. And Brian Gosselin shares his encounter with a Sasquatch-type creature in Washington county, New York. These strange reports by respected police officers rival anything on television's X-Files, because they're not works of fiction, but events that actually occurred on the streets of America.

by Patricia Monaghan
Prayers, poems, and songs to the Goddess from around the world and across the ages have been collected and adapted for the modern devotee in "The Goddess Companion: Daily Meditations on the Feminine Spirit." Author Patricia Monaghan offers a distinct meditation for each day of the year, including February 29 - April 5 is a Lithuanian folk song; August 6 a quotation from Proverbs; October 17 a Korean shaman's chant. After each prayer there is a two-paragraph "thought for the day" in which Monaghan offers the reader philosophical observations or helpful advice designed to assist living and growing in the spirit of the feminine. The very pretty purple and gold-embossed cover makes it an excellent nightstand adornment, and the gentle meditations are a stress-reducing way to begin or end your day by honoring Her and Her spirit in yourself.

Vodou Visions: An Encounter with Divine Mystery
by Sallie Ann Glassman
Like many native religions, Vodou (often referred to as "Voodoo") has been scorned and ridiculed in mainstream Judeo-Christian communities. "The word 'Vodou' sends chills down the spines of most people, and conjures up age-old terrors of sorcery, black magic, and bogeymen lurking under the bed," writes author Sallie Ann Glassman (who also coauthored "New Orleans Voodoo Tarot/Book and Card Set").
This enticing compendium of the origins and practice of Vodou makes for a fascinating read, explaining how music, dance, and artistic expression are the heart and soul of this complicated religion. "What I discovered was a vibrant, beautiful, and ecstatic religion that was free from dogma, guilt or coercion," says Glassman, a thoughtful and articulate Jewish woman who first began studying New Orleans Vodou in 1975.

Journeying: Where Shamanism and Psychology Meet
by Jeannette M. Gagan
Jeannette Gagan's "Journeying" is a must-read for those who are interested in shamanism but have been turned off by fuzzy-headed mystical claims or sloppy exposition. In this well-written and eminently useful manual, shamanism, "perhaps the oldest form of practical spirituality in the world," is explained in a straightforward, scholarly manner by a respected licensed psychologist. Gagan succinctly summarizes the procedures, philosophies, and purposes of modern psychology, illuminating the common areas occupied between the two. She builds a strong case for the introduction of shamanistic journeying into the retinue of healing modalities for the modern psychotherapist. For those intent on healing the psyches of themselves or others, shamanism may well work where other modalities have failed.  For example, long-repressed anger can be processed while journeying without fear of upsetting the neighbors, or one day awakening to the horrible realization that you just kicked the dog.

Halfway up the Mountain: The Error of Premature Claims to Enlightenment
by Mariana Caplan
"Fool's gold exists because there is real gold," coined Rumi. Here author and anthropologist Mariana Caplan herself extracts valuable nuggets from the writings of spiritual masters, both ancient and contemporary, as well as personal interviews with more than 30 esteemed masters, spiritual practitioners, and scholars and psychologists (such as Andrew Cohen, Claudio Naranjo, and Robert Svoboda).  Contending that "the present condition of contemporary spirituality in the West is one of grave distortion, confusion, fraud, and a fundamental lack of education," Caplan sets out to correct this situation by encouraging seekers to carefully examine the ideas--and ideals--of the spiritual teachers they are involved with. The introduction by Fleet Maull, a lay monk in the Zen Peacemaker Order and founder of the National Prison Hospice Project, alone makes this book worth reading.

Freeing the Captives: The Emerging Therapy of Treating Spirit Attachment
by Louise Ireland-Frey
A must-read for people who believe they may be housing a haranguing haunt, hypnotherapist Louise Ireland-Frey packs this 333-page volume with hundreds of case histories to illustrate how and why the living may become "possessed," "obsessed," or "influenced" by the dead. Making the case that most invading spirits do not have evil intent but rather are frightened, confused, or just plain lost, she describes how she and her colleagues have learned to release the living from the dead and the dead from the living. The doctor's down-to-earth delivery may make a believer out of the most devout skeptic, thereby providing an alternative therapeutic approach for a host of possibly misdiagnosed physical, mental, and emotional disorders previously deemed impervious to treatment.
