EDITOR’S FOREWORD by Nancy Allison: An excerpt from THE ECSTASY OF BEING by Joseph Campbell
By Publicity Admin

New World Library is very excited to be publishing a brand-new book by the well-known and much-loved comparative mythologist Joseph Campbell. His wife, Jean Erdman, was a leading figure in modern dance who worked with Martha Graham. The Ecstasy of Being brings together seven of Campbell’s previously uncollected articles on dance as well as the treatise he was working on when he died, “Mythology and Form in the Performing and Visual Arts.”

In many ways, this book is a love letter both to his wife and to art-making itself, celebrating dance and the performing arts through the unique mythological lens that only Joseph Campbell can provide. We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt from the book’s foreword by editor Nancy Allison.

CREATIVITY: An Excerpt from THE MYTHIC DIMENSION by Joseph Campbell
By Publicity Admin

As we face uncertain political times, art and creativity have never been more important. When we connect with our own creativity by creating art, or when we resonate with other people’s creativity in what they create, we understand our reality in a new way. 

Art sparks new perspectives and approaches, so that we don’t get stuck in old ruts and repeat the mistakes of history over and over again. Sharing in creative experiences with others helps break down perceived barriers and invites dialogue where before there was none. Creativity helps us create new ways of being.

A TALK WITH PATRICK MCDONNELL, coauthor of GUARDIANS OF BEING
By Samy AbulEla

Guardians of Being: Spiritual Teachings from Our Dogs and Cats pairs original words by spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle with delightful illustrations by Patrick McDonnell, the creator of the acclaimed comic strip MUTTS. We hope you’ll enjoy this interview with Patrick about his collaboration with Eckhart, his inspiration, and the importance of connecting with animals.

How did Guardians of Being come to be?

This book is a collaboration of Eckhart’s teachings and my MUTTS cartoon illustrations. As does all of Eckhart’s work, Guardians of Being teaches us about finding inner peace by living in the now, the transformation of our consciousness, and the arising of a more enlightened humanity. The primary signposts in this book are all of nature and, in particular, our beloved dogs and cats.(READ MORE)
