The Essence of Shinto
by Motohisa Yamakage, 79th Grand Master of Yamakage Shinto

Grand Master Motihasa of the Yamakage Shinto tradition reveals the natural uniqueness of the  
Japanese original religion. Without a founder, doctrines, idols, precepts and organization, Shinto  
teaches how to know the Spirit of Kami (Universal Spirit) through purity of body and mind. The door is  
open to everyone, without exception, providing a universal meaning of life and a practical way to live.  
The Grand Master's writings on the basic principles of Shinto with its all inclusive approach is very  
commendable. Anyone, who wishes to approach the Shinto religion will greatly benefit from this book.

Dreaming The Council Ways
by Ohky Simine Forest

Ohky combines in this book three ancient wisdoms of original people; the Mayans, the Mohawk and  
the Mongolian Shamanic traditions. She describes the tradtions through history, philosophy and  
mystic paths in a manner that is unique and shows the deeper meaning of life lived and practicied by  
the Shamans. The achivement of inner peace and harmony through appreciation and repect towards  
natural world is very refreshing. We look at the Great Spirit through our eyes as the world, we are not  
the controllers of the natural world but a part of it. - These are some of the deep thoughts expressed  
through the Shamans of ancient and modern times. An excellent book on Original American  
Shamanism by a Shaman.

These Are The Words
A Vocabulary of Jewish Spiritual Life
Arthur Green

This insightful book has been written primarily for people in the Jewish community, but we would  
argue that the concepts delineating the inner meaning of the most sacred Hebrew words offer fresh  
insight into the concept of the “Divine” along spiritually inclusive lines of contemplation. As Judaism  
developed over the centuries the Jewish perspective of the “Divine” was expanded, modified and  
refined. Rabbi Arthur Green has written with a heartfelt love of the “Divine” and of language which  
transcends being defined as only “Jewish.”

From the point of view of the Hebrew language itself, some of the words as well as their meaning,  
were so similar to Arabic counterparts we thought (as many of Embrace’s own Rabies have) that  
Jewish mystics and Islamic mystics have more in common with one another than they have with  
people of their own tradition who are not inclined towards spiritual introspection. Anyone that has  
read “The Most Beautiful Names” by Turkish Sufi, Sheikh Tosun Bayrak al-Jerrahi al-Haveti will  
understand what we mean.

Of the three first names of the “Divine” listed in the book as: YHWH, ATAH and EYN SOF, we wish to  
note here the touching description of ATAH because we believe it offers a unique practice that all  
human beings can benefit from.

According to Rabbi Green, ATAH means the YOU used to address the “Divine” in either supplication  
or prayer. We however, think that ATAH offers an opportunity for a most meaningful spiritual practice  
for all people.

If every person when addressing another individual as YOU considered that they were actually  
addressing the “Divine,” each of us would look at every person we addressed as YOU with  
completely new eyes. We might eventually be able to look at every person, even our enemy, as a part  
of the “Divine.” This is what we have always been told the Saints, Messiahs, Bodhisattvas, Avatars  
and Mystics have always done.

We recommend this book to any and all spiritual seekers.
