‘Your Way to Excellence’ (Heretic’s Guides, Vol. 2, 2019), by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Your Way to Excellence’ (Heretic’s Guides, Vol. 2, 2019) is a guide to reaching excellence in all areas of your life. The author’s approach to excellence is holistic in the sense that he considers excellence not as a skill, but as an attitude that is an organic mix of various ingredients, among them, autonomy and self-reliance, originality, creativity, self-awareness, and an acute sense for one’s difference.
The author describes the human being as a functional and organic organism that is primarily self-organizing and self-regulating. This approach to personality development, which is corroborated by systems research, leads to organic and smooth solutions for personal change and evolution that this guide proposes to you.
The author contends that true selfhelp must encourage the reader to be critical in the first place, and develop their self-thinking abilities, which is one quality of several when designing a first-hand life and becoming truly responsible for reaching excellence. To be critical means to question tradition and authority, in the first place; it means to look for realizing our personal style and cognitive preferences.
The value of this guide also consists in the fact that the author’s own life path is an accidented one in the sense that he was misled early in life, driven into the wrong career (law), which meant in practice more than two decades of a life wasted with being around the wrong people, studying the wrong majors, suffering endless frustrations, and focusing on qualities and goals that were not his own because they were not in alignment with his soul values and karmic challenges.
‘Your Way to Autonomy’ (Heretic’s Guides, Vol. 1, 2019), by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Your Way to Autonomy’ (Heretic’s Guides, Vol. 1, 2019) is an extensive personal guide helping the reader to become aware of their unique soul values. The author came to call our unique power potential ‘primary power’ or ‘self-power’ at first, before he introduced the term soul power. The guide not only explains what soul power is, how it can be developed and strengthened, but also what stands in the way to developing it. The guide explains that the main obstacle to developing soul power is parent-child codependence and emotional abuse, that the author sees as a form of addiction and which he calls symbiotoholism.
When we grasp the notion of autonomy, we see that all human growth has a destination—and that is why we say we have a destiny. The destination of youth is not to remain young, but to grow old. The destiny of a child is not to remain in childhood but to grow out of childhood.
Building soul power requires to discover one’s self, to build a genuine identity, not one that, for example, is coined as a hanger-identity around our sexual choices, such as being a ‘heterosexual’, a ‘homosexual’, a ‘pedophile’, for example. The author shows that building a genuine soul identity is done through discovering our innocence, realizing our primary power, developing our soul reality, accepting our marginality instead of striving for conformity, recovering and healing our inner child, liberating our inner Minotaur, thereby discovering our shadow, and our projections, and learning to see that a holographic image of the whole of mythology and human evolution is contained in our soul.
As the topic of individuation is highly neglected in our school system and is neither a topic to be taught at university, and as in addition the notion of soul and soul values doesn’t really fit in a materialistic and non-spiritual society, there is an obvious need for a mind-opening approach to personal growth that is provided with this guide.
‘Your Way to Innocence’ (Heretic’s Guides, Vol. 3, 2019), by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Your Way to Innocence’ (Heretic’s Guides, Vol. 3, 2019) is a guide for developing an innocent and carefree attitude in everyday life. In simple terms it could be said that innocence results from awakening our inner child and using the energy of the inner child as a trigger for self-transformation.
This systematic guide to the how-to for creating innocence is not teaching anything, but in the contrary suggests unlearning much of learned knowledge, and dissolving conditioned habits and behavior patterns that have to be cleared before true innocence can unfold. The author contends that the meaning of innocence is misconstrued and misunderstood in our culture, especially when it’s applied to children, hence the need to develop truthful language for making the necessary divide between sentimentality and authenticity.
There is no need to be innocent, it’s a choice but once people see the power of innocence, they may want to give it a try! Innocence is also a safety device, for nothing bad will ever happen to the truly innocent—which means etymologically, ‘non-harming,’ person. Innocence is the true power, it makes for excellent relationships with all beings, it makes for a modest, humble attitude, and is a base condition for a long life, and good health till old age.
‘Walter’s Leadership Guide: Why Good Leadership Starts with Self-Leadership (Series Training and Consulting, Vol. 2),’ by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Walter’s Leadership Guide: Why Good Leadership Starts with Self-Leadership (Series Training and Consulting, Vol. 2)’ presents a novel approach to understanding and training the new servant leadership approach for top and middle management audiences. This guide to servant leadership addresses college students who are looking for a way to prepare for their upcoming exposure to the corporate environment. Many of the ideas the author comes up with in this guide are non-standard, and the result of his own creative thinking.
The author’s approach is original in the sense that he has enriched and transformed the traditional leadership paradigm through basic elements of timeless wisdom, taken from Zen and the I Ching, thereby expanding the paradigm beyond the borders of the strictly Western corporate culture, adapting it for international, and particularly, Asian audiences.
This book doesn’t offer quick fixes for developing leadership skills. It presents an approach to raise the awareness level of the whole of the person. The author contends that leaders must develop not only values like integrity and accountability, but must also expand their critical thinking ability, which is one quality of several for becoming accountable as a leader in the corporate or political world.
To be critical means to question tradition and authority, in the first place; it means to look for realizing our personal style and cognitive preferences and to activate our heart, which according to newest HeartMath® research is essentially contributing to the sharpness of our cognitive apparatus, and thus a factor for right decision-making.
The main focus of the guide is upon developing the broad-mindedness and the human qualities that make a servant leader being followed not because of obedience, but because of the willingness to share with him a personal growth experience that ultimately will be to the benefit of the organization as a whole.
As uncanny as it sounds, but 2600 years ago, the Taoist sage Lao-tzu has described precisely the qualities of the servant leader in the Tao Te Ching with the laconic dictum that when the task is accomplished, and the leader had the right qualities in place, the people will say ‘We have done it all by ourselves.’ That such a form of leading is not child play, but requires self-discipline and years of practice, everybody will know who is familiar with the requirements of leading organizations in our time of global challenges.
The guide comes with a complete contextual Bibliography.
‘Walter’s Career Guide: Why Getting a Job is Not Enough (Series Training and Consulting, Vol. 1)’ by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Walter’s Career Guide: Why Getting a Job is Not Enough (Series Training and Consulting, Vol. 1)’ presents a fresh approach to brainsmart effective learning and career design, for young audiences.
The book doesn’t offer quick fixes for developing your career. It presents an approach to raise the awareness level of the whole of the person. The author contends that true selfhelp must encourage the reader to be critical in the first place, and develop their self-thinking abilities, which is one quality of several when designing a first-hand life and becoming truly responsible for your destiny.
To be critical means to question tradition and authority, in the first place and to rely on your god-given gifts and talents. We are all unique individuals, with each of us coming into the career arena with a treasure box of personal talents and skills. While our educational systems do not encourage our individuation, nor acknowledge our individuality, we need as creative people swim against the stream and develop ourselves not because, but despite we received a ‘good education.’
The main focus of the guide is upon developing and using creativity as a primary tool for personal growth and expansion, and further, the creative expansion of the whole self.
The author’s approach is holistic and spiritual in the sense that it considers the human being as a functional and organic unit embedded in a contextual and systemic environment, which is primarily self-organizing and driven by an inner program. We are directing our destinies through the inner programs we are writing, while most people do this unconsciously. From the moment we begin to take charge of our lives and begin living a first-hand life, we begin to consciously direct our destiny. We do this first of all by reprogramming ourselves.
There are few selfhelp guides that are deliberately holistic in their approach, that offer an encyclopedic approach to knowledge, which encompasses non-mainstream knowledge, that are beyond giving quick fixes and that are academic in the sense to be based on almost three decades of academic research. This book gives you the key to begin leading a first-hand life, a life of your own creation!

‘The Secret Science: The Huna Knowledge of the Cosmic Energy Field’ (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 19), by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘The Secret Science: The Huna Knowledge of the Cosmic Energy Field’ (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 19) is a scholarly article both for neophytes and professionals on the subject of the Huna knowledge of the cosmic energy field.
The author first asks what the motivation might be to studying Huna at all and he comes to the conclusion that Huna is both a religion and a science, thus has prepared the path for the ultimate new age science that we now see emerging.
The article elucidates that we have a heretic knowledge tradition also in our culture that did know and actively research about the cosmic energy field, as well as the human energy field. The author analyses the works of Carl-Gustav Jung, Paracelsus, Swedenborg, Mesmer, Reichenbach, Reich, Lakhovsky and Burr on the subject before he expands in detail about the Secret Science of the Kahunas, the natives of Hawaii.
The analysis is actually stunning as it lets clearly appear that the Kahunas had long ago the knowledge about life we are now heading into through systems theory, quantum physics and discovery of the unified field. Hence, our ‘new science’ is a return to the oldest of sciences, as we have holistic knowledge traditions both in our own culture and in Huna and other native cultures that have all very old holistic science traditions.
The article comes with a complete Glossary and Bibliography.
‘Patterns of Perception: Preferred Pathways to Genius (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 16)’ by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Patterns of Perception: Preferred Pathways to Genius (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 16)’ deals with an important topic both for science and spirituality: direct perception. How do humans perceive reality? Is there something like a universal reality, one that is valid for all of us, or is reality always personal? And how does the memory surface work? Is our school system the right one, or do we have to implement fundamental changes so as to mold our school system after the way our brain learns? Would that not be the most intelligent way of doing it?
The author tried to answer these questions in this essay, taking reference to Eastern spiritual traditions as well as Western scientific thinking, with a special focus upon Herbert James Campbell’s neurological research on preferred pathways and the pleasure function, as well as Edward de Bono’s remarkable research about the nature of the human memory surface.
What became clear after general brain research and the special focus upon preferred pathways was the rather astounding coincidence between these scientific findings about super-effective whole-brain learning and associatively linked memorization patterns, on one hand, and the way geniuses learn, as it’s documented by biographical genius and polymath research, on the other.
Information can be found, for example, through biographical research on the lives and almost miraculous learning capacities of Leonardo da Vinci, Giordano Bruno, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Albert Einstein and many others. And this then leads to the insight that there is about nothing less effective in terms of learning output than our current mainstream school system, as it virtually suffocates the human brain and besides, invalidates and impairs the right-brain hemisphere, which leads to the result that we face worldwide millions if not billions of deficient thinkers.

‘Notes on Consciousness: Elements of an Integrative Worldview (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 15)’ by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Notes on Consciousness: Elements of an Integrative Worldview (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 15)’ is not an article in the classical sense, but rather, an intuitive summary of all of the author’s nonfiction books. Its paradigmatic style and authoritative diction have not little in common with Nietzsche’s ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra.’
This vintage of an expanded worldview is a concise sketch of ‘realizable’ new ways, both individually and collectively, or, in a more expanded formulation, a new worldview that reinstitutes real morality principles instead of the fake morality that postmodern international consumer culture practices as an upside-down worldview where all the real values have been twisted into a consumerist persecutor paradigm that gives the state more and more control over the individual.
The emphasis here is on the integrative aspect, as we have so many fragmented views and opinions in our society. What we need are integrative and holistic solutions for the future. This includes all possible aspects of a holistic perspective in order to melt them into an organic whole.
The author has widely profited, in his own spiritual development, from channeled literature and from his own dream visions, from meticulous scientific observation and research, and from his various art activities. All these vectors are needed to bring about a truly synergistic and integrative regard on life and living.
This condensed integrated intuitive pamphlet is the result of more than twenty years of both intellectual and artistic pursuit combined with meditation and comparative religious studies, and not to forget, the integration of the whole body of esoteric and channeled literature that was produced by humanity throughout the ages and that the author has meticulously studied since the 1970s.
‘Shamanic Wisdom Meets the Western Mind: An Inquiry into the Nature of Shamanism’—2017 Revised, Updated, Expanded and Reformatted Edition, by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Shamanic Wisdom Meets the Western Mind: An Inquiry into the Nature of Shamanism’—2017 Revised, Updated, Expanded and Reformatted Edition—provides a synthesis of realms of knowledge that hitherto were either blinded out from human consciousness or that were seen from a disparaging perspective that is in turn the result of a fragmented perception.
Shamanism, perennial science traditions and modern science have been relegated to different cognitive and experiential realms; they were seemingly different topics, while in reality, they belong systemically together. The need for this book is evident in a time where an intuitive and integrative approach to life is going counter to ‘authoritative’ scientism, and where people begin to build awareness of their multiple fragmentations.
The study is destined to broaden the reader’s awareness for apprehending a network of hidden connections that is spanning the whole gamut of human experience, once one honestly approaches living systems with a mindset that is as much as possible free of conceptual conditioning and intellectual assumptions and projections.
The book is designed to show that at the basis of shamanism, there is not myth and mythology, but empirical and logical behavior that approaches nature without preconceptions, and an open inquisitive mind.
The study outlines the shamanic science paradigm, which is empirical and holistic, and then presents and discusses, as a first-person account, a mind-opening psychedelic voyage of the author through the use of Ayahuasca. Further, the book outlines the person of the warrior-scientist, the shaman, his or her roles, and the scientific nature of their proceedings.
The author presents 20+ years of research on shamanic cultures to find eight specific dynamic patterns of living that characterize their living continuum, and that are the pillars of their peaceful and nature-loving kind of life.
This book provides a truly integrative vision; in this sense, it goes beyond mere science and reveals to be a visionary quest.
‘The Commercial Exploitation of Abuse: A Study on Policy (Essays on Law, Policy and Psychiatry, Vol. 8),’ by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘The Commercial Exploitation of Abuse: A Study on Policy (Essays on Law, Policy and Psychiatry, Vol. 8)’ is an essay about what the author calls the ‘abuse-centered culture,’ which is obviously a culture that puts people behind bars for love, when only focusing on certain ways how bodies are touched, fondled or otherwise erotically stimulated, when those bodies belong to a group of people legally defined as ‘children.’
It borders mental derangement to build a whole society around the paranoid focus on abuse instead of defining what love is in the first place. By the same token, it is irrational to uphold sex laws, which were set in place, hundreds of years ago, by highly abusive worldly and religious authorities, and religious perversion. To sell this soup of moralistic trash and persecutions as lawful and democratic is about the greatest scandal of societal betrayal to be found in human history.
When the Church burnt people, it did it by justifying their power abuse with religion, the modern state does the same, only that it justifies its power abuses with so-called child protection. Both paradigms are similarly vague and subject to arbitrary judgment; that is why they cannot, from a perspective of responsible law making, be used for drafting rational and equitable laws.
Despite its critical tone regarding the status quo, the production may serve progressive legal, forensic and psychiatric researchers, social workers, doctors, psychologists, psychoanalysts, nurses, educators, law enforcement executives, or political policy makers who are open enough to search for viable alternative solutions to the present witch hunts.
The current situation in law enforcement becoming more and more complex, with drug and sex crimes on the rise, and a substantial part of the population behind bars for crimes that virtually decades ago were allowed and tolerated behavior, there must be a change, and this change will hardly ever be initiated from inside the box. With the United States having the highest incarceration rate in the world, what democratic example could American police force possibly give to the rest of the world?
The USA alone with only 5% of the world’s population presently houses behind endless prison miles 25% of the world’s eight million prisoners. As more and more countries adopt Draconian laws and law enforcement policies, following the USA example, it is important to offer solutions alternative to jailing people for years if not decades, thus depriving them of freedom, substantial opportunities for personal evolution, sensual pleasures and intelligent social life.
This situation is so much the more hopeless as mainstream forensic psychiatry, following age-old prejudice and approximate assumptions insists on abuse being non-curable, a fatalistic paradigm often put in the dictum that the abused from yesterday will be the abusers of today.
One of the reasons I wrote this guide was to prove that there are many different solutions present today that have been developed inside and outside of Western culture, that could help the concerned to change their destructive behavior patterns with relative ease, if only those solutions would be provided in the law enforcement setting.
The present production contains many different suggestions and ideas for providing help, or self-help, and support to those who, for rather complex reasons, reasons that in part are not in their responsibility, have failed to handle their vital energies, thus infringing the tightly restricted emotional and sexual behavior code in Western society.
Besides the intention to providing support directly to the concerned group of people, the present book also is destined to offering viable solutions, or at least starting points for solutions that could be integrated both in personal lives and in the law enforcement setting, when such behavior has been set in place by habit and conditioning.
