Mark Vale is besieged by financial and marital turmoil when he meets a group of contemporary alchemists. They take him on an astonishing journey and teach him to transform difficult situations into golden opportunities. Mark learns from wonderfully unlikely characters, from a billionaire to a beautiful topless waitress, and manifests an enormous financial windfall. But can his material success hold his family together? Mark embarks on the ultimate quest to understand how our values influence events. Author William Whitecloud brings a dazzling range of knowledge and experience — from a childhood in Swaziland immersed in supernatural worldviews to hermetic philosophy and esoteric speculation on the financial markets — to bear on this practical and magical look at what we really want, and how to get it.
THE LAST SHAMAN is a captivating ride through the jungles of war-torn Africa. Mark Vale, who represents any of us struggling to take consistent ownership of our personal power, takes an unwanted journey to find the last shaman who is responsible for ending the war and saving thousands of lives. All throughout, Mark learns from a colorful array of characters - including a Doctor of Philosophy exiled in the swamps, a shape-shifting sorceress, and the widow of a tribal scout - who teach him to commit completely to the desires of his soul. We see how that commitment enables him to create in a way that uplifts not only himself, but also the whole world that he is a part of.
If you picked up this book hoping to learn how to pull a rabbit out of a hat or master random tricks and illusions, then you’re going to be disappointed. This book leads you on a journey into the unknown—but not one revolving around sleight-of-hand games. Rather, it’s a quest to learn all that we are meant to come here and realise. It seeks to discover what all religions and spiritual systems have at their core as well as what all wise people have sought throughout the ages: self-knowledge. Realising that you’re responsible for what you create, how you perceive things, and what happens to you is tremendously liberating. If you can come to that realisation, you’ll be equipped to create a new and more rewarding life. Join the author as she looks back at pursuing truth as a professional singer, spiritual healer, intuitive coach, and student of the occult, yoga, reincarnation, spirituality and more in An Idiot’s Guide to Magic.
