Crystallization of Intelligence provides methods for integrating meditation and spiritual quests into your daily life.

We investigate how metaphysical thought influenced some of the most brilliant minds of science, then show you a fresh perspective into how the psychic nervous system, chakras and meditation can be used in harmony to awaken your spiritual Being here and now.

We examine the effect of emotion and belief in our waking and sleeping states to see how they influence each other to create spiritual advancement in both realms.

You will discover that integrating your personal spiritual quest into all aspects of life will accelerate your progress as you help bring peace to the world with the spirituality you project.

The author spent forty years studying comparative religion and philosophy from Theosophy , Mystic Christianity and esoteric Buddhism along with direct contact and tutelage under custodians of sacred wisdom from Australian Aborigines, to natives of Papua New Guinea and high mountain Buddhist monasteries in Nepal.

 Them That Dream Together
by S L Van Ronk

Around the World on a Quest for Art, this is about magic, mysticism, and the inspiration behind my work. It tells the story of an eight year trip from Aboriginal Australia, through  the jungles of Papua New Guinea, overland through S.E. Asia, and across India on a motorcycle to the snowy ranges of the high Himalayas in Nepal.  It is not only the influence behind my art, but a psychology of life shaped by problems, solutions, and mental processes encountered through diverse and remote cultures that has transformed art to a technique of mental-spiritual revealation
