Keep This Quiet! III – Out Now



Look what showed up on Amazon. This was not supposed to be published yet. I just saw the first physical proof the 18th. But in the mysterious ways of life, it’s now on Amazon, officially published the 15th. I had intended to  take a few advance copies to the Gonzo Fest and present one each to Nick Storm and Ron Whitehead, for instance. And I will. But it looks like I’d better celebrate and mention the fact that it’s for sale. And thank those who gave their blurbs to the back cover. (See below.)

Meanwhile the Gonzo Fest is nearing and there are many many events. Not to forget the three events at Carmichael’s Bookstore. Including William McKeen and myself, with the dynamic moderation of Ron Whitehead. Below, about the new book, or you can read it on Amazon.

Keep This Quiet! III—Initiations” begins in the C. G. Jung Institute Zurich, where Margaret was enrolled in 1984. She is headed for a big initiation there, which she narrates for us—showing how initiations are life-transforming. Notably, she also dives into the debate between physicist Wolfgang Pauli and psychiatrist Carl Jung about how science/matter and psyche/spirit/synchronicity emerge from a unified psychophysical realm. Dreams lend assistance, as do the brilliant Jung-Pauli letters. Exercises in the back offer practical help in how to work with energy.

“Jung & Pauli . . . Courageously, competently Harrell guided this reader through mazes of scientific exploration, all the while keeping her engaging ‘anima’ voice as lure to read on”—Puanani Harvey, Advanced Studies Coordinator, New Mexico Society of Jungian Analysts;

“Margaret has done an amazing job witnessing for us all the deep path of walking with the Self. She has presented this information, while weaving the amazing discovery of the multi-layers of psychology and the depth the journey revealed”—Jyoti, Spiritual Director, Center for Sacred Studies;

“The information on the universal nature of each soul offers a good potential to remove some of the barriers or veils between otherwise divergent ways of thinking and believing. I’m glad Margaret is ‘putting this out there’”—Al Miner, author (with Lama Sing) of “Seed Thoughts” and other books of esoteric philosophy and metaphysics;

“I could feel a welling form in my chest . . . An emotional surge was building, I was sure of it. I had no intention of heading it off. I was into this book for the duration”—Martin Flynn, owner of;

“Margaret Harrell’s ‘Keep This Quiet!’ III best demonstrates a journey of self and personal transformation through Jungian study for an already self-aware seeker. As a practicing Reiki master, I received a great deal of insight from Harrell’s spiritual study, as well as her ability to connect patterns and puns (Watergate/Flood Gate) with both humor and reverence”—Alice Osborn, author of “After the Steaming Stops.”

On “Hell’s Angels”
