White Crow Books, under the broad umbrella of world spirituality, is a search for truth. We're looking for the insight which can be found both in the mouths of spiritual teachers – and also under stones where others don’t always look. Accordingly, the blogs in this section of the website will be updated regularly, going where they will, reflecting pioneering thinking and ideas for your consideration. Drop in when you have a moment and seek different company. You can of course join the conversation by adding a comment; or you can simply join in by being here.

The White Crow   The White Crow
The name ‘White Crow’ says much about us. It pays homage to the great 19th century spiritual adventurer, William James: ‘To upset the conclusion that all crows are black,’ he said, ‘there is no need to seek demonstration that no crow is black; it is sufficient to produce one white crow; a single one is sufficient.’ William James was a truth seeker, and in this same spirit of exploration, we journey on—seeking out spiritual truths where we find them, and hopefully becoming a little more enlightened along the way.
