Anon. (1920, 2004) The Jewish peril: Protocols of the learned elders of Zion. (1920 published by "The Britons" London, England. (2000 published by Kessinger Pub., Whitefish, MT.
NOTE: From the Publisher: "The editor of this pamphlet claims that this document came from original documents stolen by a woman from one of the most influential and most highly initiated leaders of Freemasonry. The theft was accomplished at the close of a secret meeting of the initiated in France, that nest of Jewish Masonic conspiracy. Its main thesis is that Jews are behind the world's unrest. He writes in the Preface: On this point I would only warn my readers that they must not take a copy of this translation to Russia, as anybody in whose possession it is found by the Bolsheviki is immediately shot, as being the bearer of reactionary propaganda. The book was presented to the Russian public by Professor Nilus. It contains: an introduction to the main text, written by Nilus; Notes on lectures delivered to Jewish Students in Paris; a portion of an epilogue written by Nilus."

Lilly, John Cunningham. (1977) The deep self: Profound relaxation and the tank isolation technique. Simon and Schuster: NY, NY.
NOTE: From the publsiher: "This classic work presents the methods and conclusions of more than 25 years of experimentation with the isolation-tank meditative experience. Drawing on the personal testimony of many who tried it, including Burgess Meredith, Gregory Bateson, E. J. Gold, and Jerry Rubin, the evidence shows how, by eliminating the presence of shifting physical input patterns, the tank allows participants to dive deep into their subconscious and focus immediately on their inner perceptions. The different domains of reality and how various experiences with solitude affect different people are discussed along with practical details on the standards for isolation tank manufacture and use."

Regardie, Israel, Cicero, Chic and Cicero, Sandra Tabatha. (1995) A garden of pomegranates: Skrying on the tree of life. Llewellyn, St. Paul, MN.
NOTE: From the publisher: "Long considered the best single introduction to the Qabalah for magicians, the third edition of Israel Regardie's A garden of pomegranates is now ... easier to understand, more complete, and up to date. It now includes over 300 pages of never-before-published information from two Senior Adepts of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Expands Regardie's definitive text into a practical manual for Qabalistic magic: Includes pathworkings and guided visualizations for the 32 Paths of Wisdom: Suggests a course of study for learning the Qabalah and incorporating its teachings into daily life: Shows how to create your own personal Qabalistic mantra using gematria or Hebrew numerology: Includes a technique for Rising on the Planes, so you can explore different Qabalistic worlds: Features a Middle Pillar-style exercise for exploring and activating different parts of the soul.
The Qabalah is the ancient system of Hebrew mysticism that is the foundation of Western magical and esoteric studies. Its primary symbol is the Tree of Life, a diagram that can aid in the study of the nature of the Universe, the essence of God, and the human mind, spirit, and soul. A Garden of Pomegranates is the clearest introductory guide on this subject."
