Ascension!: An Analysis of the Art of Ascension as Taught by the Ishayas

Ascension! is an invitation to awaken to the innermost Reality of your true Self. This text also includes a description of the Ishayas’ 27 Ascension Attitudes.

Enlightenment: The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: A New Translation and Commentary

The Yoga Sutras of Maharshi Patanjali are an elegant description of the expansion of consciousness and the psychological, emotional, and physical transformations involved. Many commentators have mistaken the sutras for steps to enlightenment, believing it necessary to renounce normal life and force the mind into silence. Nothing could be further from the truth. This translation and commentary corrects this unfortunate distortion, clearly revealing the power of the sutras to illuminate the nature of the Self and brings to light the true purpose and meaning of Patanjali’s words. The Yoga Sutras do not contain the actual techniques to achieve enlightenment, but do describe what happens when proper tools are correctly applied. The techniques themselves have always been passed on through personal instruction, one enlivened heart to another.

First Thunder: An Adventure of Discovery

First Thunder follows a heart’s journey from life in Seattle, through intrigue in Greece, to what may be humanity’s best hope, hidden in a monastery in India. Written as an adventure novel, First Thunder relates one man’s introduction to the first four techniques of the Ishayas’ Ascension. The techniques, known as Ascension Attitudes, are based on the ascending emotions of praise, gratitude, love and compassion, and have the power to transform the life of anyone who will give them the chance.

Second Thunder: Seeking the Black Ishayas

Not just a continuation of First Thunder, this visionary work is more akin to myth than pure fiction. Its nonlinear form expands ideas of time, space, and the self into the realm of multidimensional consciousness. The conflicts and challenges faced by the godlike beings in this story represent warring aspects of our own fragmented personalities. The need for the healing of the self is pictured here to be recognized by the reader at the heart level—not merely intellectually.

Third Thunder-Book 1: Orah the Deathless Dancer

The third book in the Thunder series continues the visionary themes introduced in Second Thunder. Personifying our human experience, Orah, a Lord of Etan, comes to realize in his undertaking to save his planet, that fear, loss, suffering, and death are only illusions; that the Truth of the omnipotent well of love and strength within our own hearts is the ultimate Reality and the key to human evolution. The story is riveting, filled with the intense conflicts of the ongoing battle between the light of Pure Consciousness and the darkness of ignorance. Valin, the Asur emperor, and his armies represent the ego, which opposes the upward movement of creation.
