Product description

REALITY introduces us to the extraordinary mystical tradition that lies right at the roots of Western culture and to the magic of the ancient masters of wisdom who laid the foundations for the world we now live in.

It has become common in the West to turn to Eastern civilizations for real understanding and enlightenment. And yet at the origins of our own seemingly materialistic culture lies a tradition of incredible wisdom and significance, which we need now more urgently than ever to rediscover and reclaim. This book is the story of Parmenides Empedocles and others like them: spiritual guides and experts in other states of consciousness prophets and magicians, healers and interpreters of dreams. It also documents the excruciating but inevitable process which led to their work and teaching being distorted, covered over and forgotten. And, most importantly, it presents the original teachings of these people in all their astonishing immediacy and power - revealing their ability to be just as vibrant now as at the dawn of the Western world - to awaken us to what reality truly is.

Nothing less than a manual of transformation, REALITY is destined to become a classic.

Oxfam Bookshop Newark

Known as 'The key to the North', Newark is positioned on the Fosse Way and the Great North Road and is a market town steeped in the history of the English Civil War.

It boasts the UK's only Civil War centre, a dramatic ruined castle on the banks of the river Trent, with a broad hidden heritage of tunnels and cellars and the Queen's Sconce earthworks.

There is a delightful market square with quirky sixteenth century buildings and the magnificent eighteenth century Town Hall. St Mary Magdalene Church's Gothic spire has a hole where a cannonball was fired in the Civil war…lots to see…lots of shops…. good connections.

Come and see us especially for History books, and all other categories of readable material for all ages. We have lots of specialist books and collectibles and we sell Music, Records and CDs/DVDs. We have lovely and humorous cards for every occasion, diaries and other Fair Trade goods. We also sell online.

Our donated stock comes from Newark and the surrounding villages and we will collect from anyone who needs us.

Our volunteer team is from many interesting backgrounds, offering a wealth of knowledge and skills.

We are proud of our 11 year old shop and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
