Hulda Regehr Clark, 1995

The role of flukes, propyl alchohol, pollution and toxic heavy metals in disease conditions.  She includes the instructions for making a “zapper” from parts you can purchase at Radio Shack, and directions for making various parasitic cleanses and diets to treat chronic disease.  If you intend to use this book, be sure to visit her websites for updated information, as she was continually modifying her protocols up into her old age.

The Temple Legend : Freemasonry and Related Occult Movements

Rudolf Steiner, 1997 edition

These lectures, from 1904 to 1914, were given to members of his Esoteric School. Pictures are the origin of all things—the primeval spiritual causes. In the ancient past, people assimilated these pictures through myths and legends. In order to work in a healthy way with pictures or symbols today, however, it is necessary to first become acquainted with their esoteric essence—to understand them.

This series of lectures provides insight into the esoteric language that Steiner used, particularly during the earlier years of his teaching.

CPAK features presentations by authors, scientists, and independent researchers exploring the ancient idea that consciousness and history move in a vast cycle of time with alternating Dark and Golden Ages.  Plato called it: The Great Year.  This once universal belief, since relegated to fairy tale, is finding increasing support in new interpretations of myth and folklore, discoveries of anomalous artifacts, revisions of archeological site dating, astronomical insights, linguistic studies and new theories of consciousness
