Steps on the Stone Path

Sardello starts with guided meditations and rituals for developing awareness of, and the ability to experience, stone qualities such as deep silence, form, transparency, and color as modes of spiritual consciousness. Entering these modes of silent, creative consciousness requires befriending the elemental angelic beings embodied in stones. Sardello develops these initial practices into a sensory yoga of stones, in which the connection between the self and the Divine Self manifests through the medium of stone-awareness. Steps on the Stone Path explores the possibility of uniting our soul being with the soul of specific stones, and reveals unknown inner qualities and dimensions of humankind, and presents a dazzling theory of stones as critical tools in the making of a New Heaven and a New Earth.

Robert Sardello, an exceptionally powerful writer who Larry Dossey deems “one of the few modern thinkers who genuinely senses how to deal with the barrenness of modern life,” argues that the soul’s greatest enemy is fear. It is only when we can look honestly at every fearfrom insecurity at work to existential angstthat we may fulfill its potential for kindness, love, and compassion.

This book is at once an inspiring manual for dealing with fear and a call to arms to change our situation and thereby change the world. It is a rich combination of theory, anecdote, exercises for strengthening the soul, and the wisdom of a great student of the soul.

Acts of the Heart

(To ordeer, click on cover)

In these introductions, Robert Sardello introduces us to many people we may not otherwise have met and introduces us to many ways of being and thinking, which we didn’t know before. The range of those we meet in these pages is staggering. At the same time, there is a sweet harmony and ever-unfolding deepening of a single theme. Miraculously, it pervades and shapes the entire sequence of those whom he presents, even though he often wrote in response to a request, and not initially on his own initiative. He writes of matters with which he has made a deep friendship, and out of that friendship he has received and participated in a communion of ideas. He is able to do this because he has entered the aspiration of those he is introducing at the deepest level, making their insights his own, and deepening them in his own way. 

Facing the World with Soul

(To order, click on cover)

For more than a hundred years, the various fields of psychology have sought methods for healing the individual soul. Today, the being in need of care is the world. All the organizing forms that ought to enrich life with beauty, purpose, and depth no longer do so. To heal ourselves we need to reimagine the world. Beginning with the myth of Sophia, or “Soul of the World,” Sardello evokes a sense that the world is filled with her presence. He goes on to suggest that the soul’s primary aspects—its arts of concentration, meditation, imagination, and contemplation—do not belong simply to individual consciousness, but constitute a surrender of subjective, personal states to the consciousness that is the soul of the world. He shows how we can begin to approach daily life in a new way by practicing these arts. The chapters that follow establish a psychology of the world.
