Contributions from a Potential Corpse, Book 1, by Eugene Halliday (2020)
‘We must wake up. To dream is to be involved in a vortex of form. To wake up is to see the dream for what it is and to see beyond it, to infinity.’ Meditations on the meaning of death, the nature of mind, feeling, spirit and love, bring insight into the human condition with a positive message to fortify us in these troubling times.
Steps to the Cross, by David Mahlowe (2019)
David Mahlowe, born 1928, actor, and writer, worked in theatre, film, radio and TV. He presented for ABC in the North and Tempo, the first commercial TV arts magazine programme. On Ulster TV’s By This I Live in the late 1960s he was a respected interviewer, compared to Malcolm Muggeridge and Bernard Levin in ‘the delicate art of TV confrontation’. Literary executor of the artist Eugene Halliday, with whom he had written Shakespeare King Educator, he founded the Melchisedec Press to publish Halliday’s writings. A short illness led to his early death in 1998.

Reflexive Self-Consciousness, by Eugene Halliday (2019)
How can we deal with the increasing pace and complexity of life, a fear of terrorism, climate disaster, difficult relationships—without falling prey to stress, depression and illness?

The Paradoxical Ego, by Eugene Halliday and Zhu Kabere (2017)
Who am I? How do I relate to my environment? The ego can be a stable reference for our development or a barrier inhibiting it. Drawing on insights from medical practice, philosophy and science, we consider the role of egoic dynamics in the evolution of consciousness, hopefully contributing to the quest for insight into these profound questions.
