Catel et Bocquet retracent le destin de la fascinante Joséphine Baker dans un magnifique roman (bio)graphique tout en noir et blanc. En 500 pages, les auteurs nous dévoilent toutes les facettes de cette femme emplie de convictions : muse de nombreux artistes, militante contre la ségrégation raciale, agent du contre-espionnage de la France Libre, mère adoptive d’une douzaine d’enfants venus d’horizons divers… elle était décidément bien plus qu’une danseuse de cabaret affublée d’une ceinture de bananes...
The Mystery of Light is the first book-length account of the life and teaching of the Bulgarian-born spiritual adept Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov (1900-1986), who was one of the twentieth century's greatest luminaries of Western spirituality. He was a disciple of the saintly Peter Deunov (Beinsa Douno), modern Bulgaria's most remarkable spiritual figure. In 1937, at the behest of his teacher, Aïvanhov moved to France where he taught the timeless secrets of a universal gnosticism for nearly a half century. This book holds great appeal for seekers both within and outside established spiritual traditions.
Georg Feuerstein, Ph. D., is an internationally renowned Yoga researcher and historian of religion with thirty books to his credit, including the award-winning The Shambhala Encyclopedia of Yoga and the best-selling Living Yoga. He is also the founder-director of the Yoga Research Center and editor of Yoga World newsletter.
The author of over 30 books on yoga and creator of definitive works in audio on the teachings and foundations of yoga, he was the founder and director of the Yoga Research and Education Center in California.
Feuerstein (1947-2012) was born in Germany and moved to England to do his postgraduate research at Durham University.
Since the early '70s he has made a significant contribution to the understanding and cooperation within the East-West dialogue. His expertise, knowledge and passion to preserve the authentic teachings of Yoga in its diverse forms has led him to be acknowledged as a leading authority on this subject.
This passion and interest began at the early age of 14 and was sparked by his reading Paul Brunton's seminal work, A Search in Secret India. From this time he has not diverted from the yogic path and his enthusiasm and knowledge has become a mainstay in the resurgence of Yoga in its original form in the West.
