Conscious Planet: Our Monthly Media Guide
Welcome back! I wish everyone a Happy New Year
and we at Paraview are looking forward to an exciting and fruitful new year for
our readers and authors, and for people interested in how consciousness is
spreading around the world, in their community, or on the Net.
We start 2004 with great news for one of Paraview?s authors, Marie Jones: her
book Looking for God in
All the Wrong Places was named Best Religious/Spiritual Book of 2003
by RebeccasReads.com. This award is a very welcome appreciation for this
spiritual field guide that?s of interest to anyone who is looking for the
divine, but not always sure of where to find it.
Speaking of guidebooks, our latest Paraview Pocket Book,
Experiencing the Next World
Now by philosopher Michael Grosso, is a guide to the world beyond.
It is about life after death, but even more strikingly it shows how we all can
access this other world through our own mind. It?s fascinating journey written
by a leading thinker on consciousness.
If you want to read Grosso?s views on another very current subject, then his
feature article ?Apocalyptic
Thought on the Rampage? will offer you his insights on the increasing
use of religious rhetoric by the world?s leaders.
If one of your New Year?s resolutions is to get your personal finances
organized, then Paraview Literary Agency client Chellie Campbell and her
The Wealthy Spirit
can help you with this in an easy-to-follow spiritual and financial guide.
As usual, this month, we have an interesting array of conscious media
information. If you have any further suggestions or websites worth highlighting,
please let us know.
Once again, on behalf of the Paraview team, with the best wishes for the New
See you next month --

FRONTLINE/World: Forbidden Iran (PBS)
Thursday, January 8
In July 2003, a Canadian reporter, Zara Kazemi, was beaten to death in Iran for

the nation?s oppressive mullahs. Kazemi?s fellow journalist Jane Kokan reveals
both stories in this fascinating FRONTLINE/World report.

Wildlife Wars (Animal Planet)

Check website for schedule
It?s winter and we?re all spending a lot of time at home. But couldn?t it be a
little healthier? Hosts May Dooley and Jim Richardson explain how you can remedy
various environmental problems such as poor air and water quality.
This site, created by the Integral Institute, offers multimedia explorations of
just about everything under the sun -- and beyond that, too. Discussions are
often moderated by Ken Wilber, and definitely worth your time. Larry Dossey just
recorded a dialog called ?Your Nonlocal Mind,? in which he and Wilber explore
the research supporting the effects of ?distant intentionality? (such as prayer)
on health and healing.
This organization was formed because the Earth needs a good lawyer. Check out
their efforts to support the environment in the face of challenges by the Bush
administration. And they?ve got a cool benefit CD called Where We Live
with songs from Norah Jones, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan, and Tom Waits.

better: ?This New Year does not represent a chance to just move on; important
steps remain to be taken.?
