Pine Winds Press is dedicated to the study of the life force and the soul whether they show up in practices to heal the worlds and the beings in them, ways to live your life better, or even strange creatures that can’t be explained by physical reality. We welcome everyone who comes with a desire to mix their joys, sorrows, and discoveries to gain wisdom.
Patrick Harpur discusses his brilliant look at the phenomena the mystify us, bringing together diverse areas such as fairies and UFOs, crop circles and skeptics, devils, angels, shamans, and witches. This is a wonderful book for those of you who are looking for more than another list of haunted houses or mundane ghostly tales.
Harpur says that we do not live in a purely physical reality, as many Western scientist would have us believe. Instead there is another side to our lives that Harpur calls daimonic reality. It makes room for many of the things that we know exist, but choose to ignore because we have been told they are “impossible.” Putting the two realities together will make our world whole again and let us move on toward deeper understanding of the events Harpur calls daimonic.
Harpur weaves his thesis with wit and ingenuity, combining ideas of Carl Jung, the Gnostics, the Romantic poets and writers with his own insights to show us what is possible if we allow ourselves to experience our world daimonically.
We are connected, one to another, in ways that the physical world can’t explain. We often know when someone is staring at us. Enough children remember previous lives to suggest reincarnation happens sometimes. People see ghosts and angels. Mothers save children by lifting cars off them. St. Teresa of Avila floated in the air in full view of dozens of witnesses. They usually could hold her down, but not always.
It’s not one thing. It’s everything all together that shows that we all have souls. And that’s what this book does — puts everything (well, a lot of things) together to show that souls are the best explanation for what we experience. Continue reading “We All Have Souls and I Think We Can Prove It”
Glen Boulier’s many personal encounters with Bigfoot led him to investigate the phenomenon. He spent years researching the stories, the legends, the speculations. He questioned individuals about their own particular experiences and interviewed researchers, Native Americans, hunters and trackers, and forestry workers. He examined the written accounts and listened to opinions from many sides of the debate. He studied Bigfoot from as many angles as he could, trying to understand exactly what he and so many others have seen with their own eyes. Is it a spirit? Is it a flesh and blood animal? Is it the devil?
This book is the record of Glen’s own quest. He presents his vast collection of information objectively, and then submits his own conclusion for consideration. Now it’s your turn to read the accounts and decide for yourself: What exactly is Bigfoot? Continue reading “Witnessing Bigfoot: Flesh and Blood, Native American Legend, or the Devil Himself?”

Since the 1894 report that a “Wildman” with a club was seen traveling through Morris County, strange creatures resembling Bigfoot have been reported in New Jersey. The Pine Barrens, 1.1 million acres covering parts of seven different counties and 22% of the entire state, has been a rich source for glimpses of the legend. Many other parts of the state have been visited by Bigfoot as well. In this book WR Matts documents 68 of these recorded sightings from all across the Garden State. Continue reading “Bigfoot in New Jersey”
