"A revelation of insight into the foundations of human suffering & transcendence. It not only lays out essential steps for inner freedom and joy but illuminates the way to true human potential." Paul Rademacher, author: A Spiritual Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe

"The masterwork of a profoundly gifted healer of the soul. Dazzling, challenging, wondrously useful." Peggy Rubin, author: To Be and How To Be, Transforming Your Life Through Sacred Theatre

"Rewiring the Soul is one the best introductions to the spiritual life I've ever read. Not esoteric but real-world and practical. The implications are profound." Peter Shepherd, author: Daring To Be Yourself

The Gutenberg Project

This post is just to recommend a website I have been following since the early 1990's, when they began their impressive trajectory. The Gutenberg Project was designed in order to give the world free on-line access to all those books that were no longer under copyright laws (in some countries that happens 75 years after the initial publication date...check for your own country).

A huge project was undertaken, aptly named Gutenberg, books were scanned into the system and volunteer proofreaders from all over the world began the immense job of getting them online so that others could freely download them. Through The Gutenberg Project alone, 20,000 volumes are already available in many different languages. Through affiliates of The Gutenberg Project, over 100,000 titles are available.

Whether you want to download some of the richest material from the world's libraries, or whether you want to volunteer as a proofreader (even if you only do it once in a while, as I do, whenever I have a few spare minutes), you are helping to advance a project that is bringing books to the world in a way that is unsurpassed in known history.

Visit the site. Search by title, category, or by author in your preferred language.
