  • Lord of Dark Places (1970, 2006)

  • Spirit Circle: A Story of Adventure & Shamanic Revelation (1998)
    For centuries indigenous peoples have spoken of a secret society of shamans who consult with spirits from another reality. Who are these mysterious oracles? And what makes their teachings more relevant today than ever before?

    A search for answers leads to ancient legends that tell of UFOs bringing visitors from other planets who have been participating in sacred ceremonies each year for hundreds of years. Tara Fairfield, an anthropologist, at first skeptical, is initiated into a shamanic reality where she is tutored in truths beyond her wildest dreams.

    This story is based on actual events and a rich mythology that dates back over 10,000 years.

  • White Mountain Blues (1997)
    A charming novel, transporting the reader to the pastoral simplicity of a mountain village, where the hectic pace of modern life is forgotten. With a love story, a community crisis that resolves in celebration, a renewed sense of our relationship to the mystery of the natural world, this is a utopian novel for the soul.

  • The Lens of Perception: A User's Guide to Higher Consciousness (1994, 2007)
    The lens of perception--the part of human consciousness that experiences reality--is a core concept in virtually every spiritual and psychological tradition, from ancient Buddhism to Native American shamanism to Jungian psychology. Hal Zina Bennett proposes that if we can comprehend and harness this consciousness, we can shape our experiences and fulfill our greatest potential. By deconstructing the inner workings of the human mind, this skillfully written book unravels the Gordian knot of reality itself.

  • Follow Your Bliss: Discovering Your Inner Calling And Right Livelihood (1990, 2004) by Hal Zina Bennett with Susan J. Sparrow
    Practical guide for discovering the career, vocation or avocation that will make your heart sing. No book goes quite as deeply as this one to help you explore your own deepest inner promptings, gifts and dreams to choose or create a way to make a living that will satisfy your fullest potentials and your fondest dreams.

  • How To Write With A Collaborator (1988, 2004) by Hal Zina Bennett and Michael Larsen

  • Writing Spiritual Books: A Bestselling Writer's Guide to Successful Publication (2004)
    Spurred by books such as Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way and Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones, interest in writing and spiritual growth is greater than ever. At the same time, personal growth books are mainstays of the bestseller lists.

    In Writing Spiritual Books, Hal Zina Bennett, who has coached such well-known writers as Jerry  Jampolsky, Judith Orloff, and Shakti Gawain, and blends these trends, showing readers how to focus on their spiritual experience in a way that will enlighten and captivate others. Including both anecdotal and prescriptive material gleaned from his work as a writing coach, the book contains writing exercises, exploratory questions, and other practical guidance. A useful resource section addresses the too-often-neglected issue of finding an agent and publisher with current lists of both. Individual chapters include Choosing a Vehicle for Your Message, Where to Begin Finding Models to Follow and Read Deeply, and Getting Published and What Comes Later.

  • First Light, Then Quiet: Poems and Other Writings  (2002)
    Collected poems of the author between 1998 and 2002.

    Bennett, a popular reader and author of more than 30 successful books, here uses poetry to explore the deep ecological bonds between ourselves and the natural world.

    Lyrical, at times mystical, Bennett's themes cover the human spectrum--from the mystery of life and death, to compassio

    Bennett dares to entertain lofty as well as ignoble themes, ones that have been around for as long as poetry, as long as human yearning, summoning us back to our own humanness.

  • Spirit Guides: Companions & Mentors For Your Inner Journey (1976, 2002) by Hal Zina Bennett with Susan J. Sparrow
    After five printings in three languages, this book has established itself as a classic in the field. Complete, straight forward instructions and anecdotes make it easy to access the wisdom of the inner world.

    There are two new chapters: one telling how to deal creatively with inner critics, who often disguise themselves as helpers, the other telling how to access spirit guides through "journeying," a powerful and sacred way based on Native American and Celtic teachings.

    This is a cherished book in the libraries of seekers throughout the world.

  • Spirit Animals and the Wheel of Life (2001) with Angela Werneke, Illustrator

  • Zuni Fetishes: Using Native American Sacred Objects for Meditation, Reflection, and Insight (1993)
    The Zuni have traditionally used small stone carvings of animal figures as power objects and mediators between themselves and the spirit world. Any object that has special meaning can be used as a fetish. In this fascinating, informative, and beautifully illustrated guide to the fetishes of the Zuni people of New Mexico, Hal Zina Bennett explores key principles of Native American spirituality and how early Zuni teachings can benefit us all today. He provides an excellent guide to Zuni traditions and an intriguing picture of their early life, along with detailed instructions for using fetishes for mediation, reflection, and insight in modern life. He describes key fetish figures, including the Guardian of the Six Regions, their legendary meanings, and the personal qualities each figure can support and help its owner develop.

    In explaining the nature of fetishes and the psychological and spiritual benefits that we can gain from their use, Bennett provides illuminating cross-cultural comparisons, stimulating exercises, and journaling opportunities.
