Books by S.L. Van Ronk
My books are no longer available in hard copy since Amazon blocked my access to my own. They were still selling my books with no notification to me and no royalties. In my personal opinion, this is theft by one of the world's wealthiest corporate imperialists. I will publish hard copies again in the future, but it will take time and cost money I don't have. I now offer them for free in a .pdf

Crystallization of Intelligence
by S L Van Ronk

486 pages, b&w, 6" x 9"  published September 2017

Free .pdf edition<

Crystallization of Intelligence investigates how metaphysical thought influenced some of the most brilliant minds of science, then shows 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 and how to integrate your 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.

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
