JANE ROBERTS How to Develop Your ESP Power (1966)
Inspired by Jane’s first paranormal experience, this book is a set of exercises to help develop one’s ESP abilities. The book is illustrated by Jane’s accounts of her experiences and those of her husband Rob, the artist Robert F. Butts. It was while trying out the exercises that Seth contacted Jane for the first time. Throughout the book, she gives quotations from his earliest communications. Jane encourages readers to enter their own dreams in a daily journal to help them examine how their sleeping mind continues to function, resolving problems, and sparking waking creativity.
JANE ROBERTS The Seth Material (1970)
The first popular Seth/Jane book, this is an account of how Seth first appeared in the lives of Jane and Rob; it contains their doubts, self-questionings, and tests of him. Excerpts from their early sessions with him sketch the outlines of the world view that he was shortly to present more fully in his own works.
SETH-DICTATED BOOK – Seth Speaks: The Eternal Validity of the Soul (1972)
The first full-scale “Seth book.” In it Seth describes the multidimensional nature of the human personality, with its untapped resources, its range in time and space, its connections with all aspects of the universe, and the continuity of consciousness.

Seth’s second book. A prerequisite to any further study of the Seth material. In it Seth offers an expanded view of how our bodies constantly recreate themselves, and how the events in our lives are created in line with conscious beliefs and suggestions.

JANE ROBERTS Psychic Politics: An Aspect Psychology Book (1976)
A sequel to Adventures, this book by Jane relates more of her encounters with her greater self, as well as similar experiences on the part of Rob and individuals with whom they come in contact.

JANE ROBERTS The World View of Paul Cezanne (1977)

JANE ROBERTS The Afterdeath Journal of an American Philosopher: The World View of William James* (1978)
This book presents the world view of the philosopher William James (1842-1910) as he has developed it since he left his body. He comments on the limitations of his outlook when in our reality, analyzes U.S. cultural development in the light of what he has discovered since his “death,” and describes the reality in which he is now focused. His account of “God,” whom he refers to as the “the knowing light” is deeply moving. This work is one of Jane’s productions while in a state of altered consciousness.
JANE ROBERTS Emir’s Education in the Proper Use of Magical Powers (1979)
This children’s book is also suitable for adults. It shows our need to make self-responsible decisions, the value of the change of seasons and the change called death, and the oneness of creation. A young prince learns as he journeys through the universe.
JANE ROBERTS The Further Education of Oversoul Seven (1979)
Now republished as part of the Oversoul Seven Trilogy and a sequel to The Education of Oversoul Seven, this novel was also written by Jane when in a state of altered consciousness.

Seth stresses the power of the individual to choose whether to participate in mass decisions or to follow a separate course. Transcribed and edited by Rob.
JANE ROBERTS If We Live Again: Or, Public Magic and Private Love* (1982)
The poems in this volume were written by Jane about altered states of consciousness as experienced through love for another person, through awareness of one’s multidimensional personality, through nature, through dreams, and through a consciousness of the magic in every object we perceive.
JANE ROBERTS Oversoul Seven and the Museum of Time (1984)
Now republished as part of the Oversoul Seven Trilogy, in this third volume, Jane develops the concepts of simultaneous time, the continual alteration of both past and future that is produced by actions in the present, and the importance of our taking steps today to choose a future reality in which our species will survive and flourish. The key to this transformation is contained in the “Codicils,” principles of conduct that are presented in her previous work, Psychic Politics.
JANE ROBERTS Seth, Dreams and Projection of Consciousness (1986)
Written between The Seth Material and Seth Speaks but not published until 1986, this book by Jane fills in the chronological gap between those two works. In it, she relates her experiences and experiments with dreams and projection of consciousness, and gives much advice from both Seth and herself about working with one’s dreams and engaging in out-of-body travel. The Introduction by Rob Butts describes the circumstances surrounding Jane’s death of September 5, 1984.
SETH-DICTATED BOOK Dreams, “Evolution,” and Value Fulfillment, Volumes I & II (1986)
These seventh and eighth Seth books recount the “evolution” of material reality moment by moment from the dream state into its manifestation as our physical environment. Seth also describes the goal towards which each aspect of the whole of All That Is is working: value fulfillment. As in previous Seth books, Robert Butts provides notes and commentaries. His Introductory Essays give an account of Jane’s final illness and the reasons for the immense physical difficulties which she suffered.
SETH-DICTATED BOOK The Magical Approach (1995)
Dictated by Seth in 1980, this sessies of sessions was gathered into publication form by Rob Butts approximately 10 years after Jane’s death.The sessions were given by Seth in an effort to help Jane tap into her ability to heal herself. He urges her (and all of us) to adopt a mindset more in keeping with natural inclinations, and calls this approach the “magical” one as compared to the usual rational one used in our society. Seth encourages us to listen to our inner voices, to heed our impulses, to live spontaneously, and to focus with intent and joyful expectation on what we desire to bring into our lives. A classic example of Seth’s perspective, this book is a welcome addition to his reality creation material. Includes artwork by Rob.
SETH-DICTATED BOOK The Way Toward Health (1997)
The last of the Seth-dictated books, it was written from Jane’s hospital bed over the months preceding her death. The material in this book was evoked by the questions and considerations Jane and Rob faced during her long illness, and becomes an in-depth examination of the miracle of life in the human body. It also becomes the poignant story of Jane’s courageous attempt to understand the crippling condition she had contracted and see the role it played in her life.
JANE ROBERTS The World View Of Rembrandt (2006)
Jane Roberts “tunes into” the non-physical mind of Rembrandt who provides amazing reflections and advice stemming from his experiences both before and after physical death.
Roberts, Jane (1997 and after). The Early Sessions
(Sessions 1 through 510 of the Seth Material). New Awareness Network. Edited by Robert Butts. Nine volumes. ISBN 0965285502.
The Early Sessions are just that. When Jane Roberts and Robert F. Butts first began exploring ESP, they recorded each of their sessions in anticipation of using their notes to create a book on ESP (which they did ultimately published in 1965 as: How to develop your ESP, followed by “The Seth Material” in 1970).
The early sessions provide an incredible opportunity for us to see behind the scenes of the earliest Seth materials and later Seth books. They add substantial authentication to those materials by independently collaborating the claims of Seth, Jane and Rob.
The Early Sessions where not originally intended for publication. However, in 1998, years after Jane and Seth’s other books had created an interest, they were published in nine volumes. The early sessions started as journals created contemporarily with Jane Roberts and Robert Butts research. Through out their early exploratory sessions, Robert was making meticulous notes of all noticed details, recording his and Jane’s experiences as they investigated ESP and psychic phenomena.
