Magical Child Matures is the actual title of this book.
Joseph Chilton Pearce's book Magical Child is recognized the world over as the classic study of how modern birthing and child-rearing practices were thwarting Nature's plan for full human creativity and intelligence in a child's first fifteen years.
Now the author takes the "magical child" into adolescence and young adulthood where Nature's plan includes a closely related sexual and spiritual stage in human development. Sharing with us his own experiences, Pearce reveals his fascinating journey toward a personal discovery of Self. He dramatically demonstrates what is at the heart of virtually all the serious social and psychological problems we face today -- and he shows us how understanding Nature's astonishingly magnificent process can literally change our world.
"THERE WILL BE PASSAGES IN THIS BOOK THAT RING TRUE IN QUESTS FOR ENLIGHTENMENT...HE HAS POINTED THE WAY TO AN ACCEPTANCE OF THE ADOLESCENT DISCOVERY OF SPIRIT AS THE NORMAL START OF A DEVELOPMENTAL PATH FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT WANT TO BECOME CYNICALLY ALIENATED."
--San Francisco Chronicle
"PRAISEWORTHY...GOING FAR BEYOND HIS EARLIER MAGICAL CHILD TO EXPLORE THE DYSFUNCTIONS OF CULTURE, THE PROMISE OF MEDITATION, AND THE PARADOXES OF SEXUALITY."
It looks like I am the only one with this book. It's a great book! This one is a Library book with the stamps and tape and all that. Still perfectly readable.
