Ceremony Celebration


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

When did Rosh HaShana, the anniversary of creation, become a day of judgement? How does Yom Kippur unite the priest's atonement with the prophet's repentance? What makes Kohelet, read on Sukkot, the most joyful book in the Bible? Why is the remembrance of the Pesah story so central to Jewish morality? And which does Shavuot really celebrate the law or the land? Bringing together Rabbi Sacks's acclaimed introductions to the Koren Sacks Mahzorim, Ceremony & Celebration reveals the stunning interplay of biblical laws, rabbinic edicts, liturgical themes, communal rituals and profound religious meaning of each of the five central Jewish holidays.

Ceremony And Power


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In Ceremony and Power, Geoffrey Sumi is concerned with the relationship between political power and public ceremonial in the Roman Republic, with particular focus on the critical months following Caesar's assassination and later as Augustus became the first emperor of Rome. The book traces the use of a variety of public ceremonies, including assemblies of the people, triumphs, funerals, and games, as a means for politicians in this period of instability and transition to shape their public images and consolidate their power and prestige. Ultimately, Sumi shows that the will of the people, whether they were the electorate assembled at the comitia, the citizen body at the contio, the spectators at the theater, the crowd at the triumph, or mourners at a funeral, strongly influenced the decisions and actions of Roman aristocrats.

A Ceremony Called Life


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

When we gather in ceremony—to welcome a newborn, celebrate a marriage, or bid farewell to those we’ve lost—we are fully present to our lives and in touch with the deep meaning that feeds our souls. Imagine how our lives might change if we brought the same loving attention to every “ordinary” moment. This is the invitation of A Ceremony Called Life, the debut book by new author Tehya Sky. For anyone struggling to find their place and purpose in our ever-changing world, Sky deconstructs our most common spiritual ideas and empowers readers to participate whole-heartedly in the magic and mystery of our human journey. Topics include recalibrating our vision of spirituality; moving through the obstacles that keep us feeling separate; embodying our sacred nature of creator and created; and engaging life as the spiritual practice.

Mule Hair


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Journalist Steve Muehler gets more than he bargained for when he flies to North Dakota to research a little-known cult led by a reclusive figure who calls himself "Mule Hair." From the airport, he's taken to the tiny town of Wahpeton, and from there to an old opera house that is the hub of Mule Hair's compound. The fully stocked bar with red and white wines, marijuana, and psychedelic mushrooms is a signal of things to come. Then, High Priestess Abigail, a stunning woman wearing all black, leads him to Mule Hair, who is looking down at the world from his loft and wearing black leather gloves and a smoking jacket autographed by Hugh Hefner. Mueller has only just begun to take in the eccentricities of Mule Hair and his devoted group of followers. For the next seven weeks, he will participate in a series of dark rituals that includes drugs, autoerotic asphyxiation, the eating of placenta pot pies, forbidden sex, and much more. Join Mueller as he enters a secretive world. Here, the concern is not so much the journey that Mule Hair and his followers are on; it is how that journey will end.

Ceremonies For Real Life


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Performing ceremonies makes me feel like I have a say in how my life turns out. It makes me feel like I have some form of control in how it all plays out. Taking part in a ceremony means I am asking for help. I put in my request, back it up with the power of my creative intention, and then I try to surrender to the weave already in progress. At least when I am clever, I surrender. Because how I get there or how quickly I arrive is best left in more experienced hands!
