He gives some case histories illustrating that using the ouija board can be both helpful and dangerous. Well-known cases discussed are Jane Robert's Seth and the Toronto "Philip" group experiment.

Minneapolis, MN: Winston Press, 1981. 203p. Bibliographic notes by chapter: 197-201; Biblio- graphy: 195-196 The emphasis here is on the role faith plays in heal- ing and that we are personally responsible for our state of health. There are several chapters on faith. Jackson examines the nature of faith, unconscious factors in faith, conscious processes in faith, and super-conscious expressions of faith. There is a chapter on innate faith and one on faith that is achieved. Most relevant to parapsychology is Chapter 10, "Mystical Illumination and the Super-healthy Person" Here he discusses the level of faith that employs "the higher levels of consciousness for its purposes." He classifies the phenomena related to the superconsciousness in three categories: the psychological, the psychic, and the parapsychic. It closes with a section on the cultivation of revealed truth. The final chapters deal with cultivation of a life-affirming attitude. - R.A.W. 02036. Katz, Richard. Boiling Energy: Community Heal- ing Among the Kalahari Kung.

Katz reports on his field investigation of the ritual healing dance of the !Kung. The rituals are described. in detail, and he shows how they are perceived at the ex- periential level through interviews with participants; he traces the role of healing in the healers' lives and in the community as a whole, and he presents a sociological ana- lysis of how the form and function of healing are shaped by the character of the !Kung social order. The book grew out of a request from the IKung to "tell our story of healing to your people." The talks of four !Kung healers are the heart of the book. Of special interest are four chapters, "At a Healing Dance," "Educa- tion for Healing;' "Career of the Healer," and "Psycho- logical and Spiritual Growth." Biographies arc give of some important !Kung healers. - R.A.W. 02037. Loye, David. The Sphinx and the Rainbow: Brain, Mind and Future Vision. Foreword by Willis Har- man.
