The back cover of this book says:

“Building on the foundation of the Transpersonal Psychology pioneers, George A. Boyd has revealed the infinite depths of the mind in this groundbreaking volume. A Mudrashram® Reader begins by mapping the continuum of altered states of awareness. It explains states of identification—how the mind comes to identify with discrete centers of consciousness by associating the attention with these centers. It shows how states of imbalance in spiritual development arise, and how these states of imbalance produce personality disruption, leading to the fanaticism and dramatic personality changes seen in religious cults. It clarifies the facets of Integral meditation for both the reader new to this subject and for the advanced student of meditation.”


“This profound volume challenges you to explore meditation deeper than ever before. It shows you the wellsprings of Purpose, the higher octaves of will, and the mystery of the Divine Will. It lets you look through the eyes of the Mudrashram® Multiplane Masters, who illuminate how Great Initiate’s of each of humanity’s spiritual traditions minister the Light to transform humanity’s spiritual potentials at each level of the Great Continuum of Consciousness.”


“George A. Boyd has assembled selected writings from his web site, teaching materials disseminated to his meditation students, and new articles to create a penetrating explication of meditation and spirituality. For the first time, these teachings of the Mudrashram®lineage are now made available to the general public.”


“Reading this controversial and evocative book will give you a rare glimpse into the world of these mystic Adepts, whose interpenetrating awareness has laid bare the spiritual path from beginning to end, and illuminated how each stage of spiritual development can be progressively mastered. Reading this book may shake to the foundations your assumptions about spirituality and the spiritual path—it is an eye-opening revelation of the great Work of the Mudrashram® Masters, who dwell in the sublime heights of the Transcendental Sphere, and share with us their timeless wisdom.”

The Discourses of Swami Prem Dayal, Second Edition

(ISBN) 978-0-9789-2794-3


When George A. began his meditation teaching work in 1983, he was contacted by one of the Mudrashram® guides, Swami Prem Dayal. From 1983 to 1984, George asked Swami if some of the channeled guidance that he was receiving could be written down for seekers. Swami consented, and a book of some of the original teachings of the Mudrashram® lineage were recorded in a question and answer format.


Those who are interested in learning more about the Mudrashram® system of Integral meditation will want to study these earliest sources of these teachings and read Swami’s Prem Dayal's original satsangs. While this kernel of initial revelations has been greatly expanded over the 30 years since this teaching was first presented to the world, seekers and students alike will benefit from reading Swami’s inspired discourse.

The Psychic Realm: Finding Safe Passage through the Worlds of Illusion

(ISBN 978-0-9789-2795-0)


We quote from the back cover of the book:

When people say the word, "Psychic", they have only a very vague understanding of what this word really means. This book provides an in-depth examination of what psychic abilities are, the types of phenomena that comprise psychic experiences, and the bands of the Great Continuum where psychics have these experiences.


The Psychic Realm is known as the World of the Divine Imagination or the Realm of Illusion. Each spiritual sojourner must find a way to successfully navigate these perilous straits to avoid getting trapped by these illusions. This book shows you how to develop the requisite discernment to safely cross the realm.


George's many years of experience doing psychic readings, plus his many years of studying the Psychic Realm, has produced a book that provides deep insight into these mysterious worlds. He sheds light on the types of psychic readings and how to evaluate them, creation by intention, channeling, psychic guides, astral travel, past lives, psychic healing, metaphysical counseling, Tarot, visioning, Soul mates, and more. The book also contains an extensive meditation and metaphysical glossary.


This book will be an invaluable addition to your spiritual library and will be a continuing source of sage guidance to understand and to rightly use your psychic abilities.

Religions, Cults and Terrorism: What the Heck Are We Doing?

(ISBN 978-09789279-6-7)


This newest compendium of George A. Boyd’s writing assembles some of his insights and discoveries about religions and cults, and explores their connection to terrorism. George offers articles from his web site, those shared with his meditation students, and new reflections on these topics.


Cover Picture Table of Contents

We quote from the back cover of the book:

 

This book sheds light upon religious traditions of the Planetary and Cosmic Realms, religious conversion, the dynamics that operate within religions to gain and retain followers, how cults form, the impact of cultism on the personality, therapeutic methods to help those who emerge damaged from these cults, applications of the knowledge derived from studying cults to understanding terrorist groups, and more.


George’s articles provide a unique and evocative perspective on these topics. This book will provide a useful resource for students of religion and transpersonal psychology, and those seeking a better understanding of cults and terrorism. Counselors and psychotherapists will find the chapter on therapeutic inventions with cult members can help them gain a more thorough understanding the issues of ex-cult members and potential treatment approaches for this population.


Finally, this book poses the poignant question, are religions and cults unwittingly leading their followers astray despite their best intentions? The author examines this question in the light of the insights of the Mudrashram® Masters and proposes some alternatives drawn from Integral meditation.

In Meditation for Therapy, George A. Boyd gathers his reflections about using meditation in psychotherapy, and how meditation can be appropriately used in the therapeutic context. George offers articles from his web site, those shared with his meditation students, and new reflections on these topics.

We quote from the back cover of the book:

This newest book by George A. Boyd, MA collects his reflections and insights on the interface between psychology and meditation. He explains the different types of transpersonal psychologies, the levels of the mind, and how psychotherapy and hypnosis access these bands, and the different ways meditation can be used to augment psychotherapy.


George draws material from his website, and from previously unpublished writings on transpersonal psychology to provide a penetrating look into the unconscious and Superconscious bands of the mind. He uniquely brings insights gleaned from his study of the Great Continuum of Consciousness to illuminate how clients view their world from various spiritual persectives, and how this influences their beliefs and behavior.


This is a book tht will appeal to those professional therapists who have seen the anguish, pain, and depravity of the human soul, and bring their healing art to bear upon it. These therapists may seek other tools. and other perspectives, to help them assist their clients.


It is a book for therapists who think deeply, who seek to uproot the sources of emotional pain, and who want new approaches to deal with stubborn human problems that resist conventional interventions.


You will benefit from adding this book to your resource library, as it reveals many new potential techniques of meditation beyond the mindfulness practices to which psychotherapists have been exposed.
