Everyone wants inner peace. It is the lack of inner peace that causes hatred and violence. For thousands of years various disciplines have structured long studies, mentoring, and meditations of some sort to achieve the goal of inner peace. Most of these disciplines are found in eastern cultures. The fast-paced western society has shown little interest in them, with some small exceptions. What is the solution? The solution or part of the solution is to develop a methodology that comprises of technology and some aspects of the various disciplines that will be useful and of interest to people in western society.

Almost everyone in western society has a cell phone with a camera, which makes photography easy. Photography is a tool used in this methodology to to explore what people feel inside. Any camera or cell phone can be used. What are you called to photograph? What emotions does the photograph bring to the surface? How does it make you feel? This book will help to guide you through this process. This book contains two of Dr. Allocca's personal journeys: 2009 and 2018. A 2019 addendum has been added to the book.

Dr. Allocca is a medical research scientist and biophysicist with many years of personal experience in photography and with some knowledge of Buddhism, Shamanism, Yoga, self-discovery, and personal growth.

Ascension In The New Age (Full Color Book)



Dr. John A. Allocca, Copyright 2021
ISBN 9798748615884
332 - 6" x 9" pages

What is ascension? Who are we? Where do we come from? What is our purpose? These are the primary questions the human race asks. The Ancients believed the universe consists of multi-dimensions. Quantum physics today is showing serious consideration of this theory. It is believed that there are ascending levels of consciousness associated with multi-dimensionality. Advancing to a higher level of consciousness / higher dimension may be considered ascending. Understanding the world around us through knowledge, meditation and/or brain biofield therapy, is the beginning of the ascension process. Photography is used as a tool for self-discovery.

Dr. Allocca is a medical research scientist and biophysicist with many years of personal experience in photography and with some knowledge of Buddhism and Yoga.

PAUMANOK Transition [Print Replica] Kindle Edition

"Paumanok-Transitions" is a tour de force - an impressive performance by poets, photographers and the editor and co-editors! This year-long anthology of poems and photographs begins each month with Whitman's words which transition the reader from the past to the present. The illuminating poems in this anthology lead the reader backward and forward at the same time - an oxymoron, a feat only possible with words. The poetic words in these pages document transitions of the personal, spiritual, social, sexual, emotional and political, akin to Whitman's own journey - when he went forth as a child from his Birthplace into the world as a builder's apprentice, journalist, essayist, newspaper founder, Civil War nurse, novelist, poet and Comerado. His fellow travelers in this volume vividly relate their transitions with spontaneous awareness or aching recall - involving a movement or shift that is transformative for both poet and reader.
Cynthia Shor, Executive Director, Walt Whitman Birthplace Association
