Tantra Yoga Secrets Book Excerpt:

The practice of Tantra Yoga is considered to be the highest and most rapid path to enlightenment. Master teacher Mukunda Stiles offers 18 lessons in Tantra Yoga, a practice of transformational self-healing in which we can deepen awareness of our bodies, their energy forces, and the connections to the natural world around you and those you love. While many movements today describe tantra as a sexual practice promising longer and better orgasms, increased stamina, and ecstasy, the real Tantra aims to awaken Kundalini, the dormant potential force in the human personality. The Tantra tradition includes a vast range of practical teachings leading to the expansion of human consciousness and the liberation of primal energy. By heightening their awareness to this connective energy, readers will learn to embrace and develop a higher level of intimacy, the heart of tantra. Stiles explains this intimate and life-changing practice with grace, structure, and clarity--an easy-to-follow Tantra Yoga workshop in book form. Tantra Yoga Secrets will empower readers to overcome emotions, gain new knowledge, and live a more fulfilling spiritual lifestyle.

Yoga Karma and Rebirth Book Excerpt:

For serious yoga practitioners curious to know the ancient origins of the art, Stephen Phillips, a professional philosopher and sanskritist with a long-standing personal practice, lays out the philosophies of action, knowledge, and devotion as well as the processes of meditation, reasoning, and self-analysis that formed the basis of yoga in ancient and classical India and continue to shape it today. In discussing yoga's fundamental commitments, Phillips explores traditional teachings of hatha yoga, karma yoga, bhakti yoga, and tantra, and shows how such core concepts as self-monitoring consciousness, karma, nonharmfulness ( ahimsa), reincarnation, and the powers of consciousness relate to modern practice. He outlines values implicit in bhakti yoga and the tantric yoga of beauty and art and explains the occult psychologies of koshas, skandhas, and chakras. His book incorporates original translations from the early Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga Sutra (the entire text), the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, and seminal tantric writings of the tenth-century Kashmiri Shaivite, Abhinava Gupta. A glossary defining more than three hundred technical terms and an extensive bibliography offer further help to nonscholars. A remarkable exploration of yoga's conceptual legacy, Yoga, Karma, and Rebirth crystallizes ideas about self and reality that unite the many incarnations of yoga.

The Cleansing Power of Yoga Book Excerpt:

Discover the benefits of removing toxic energy—from increased energy, clarity, and focus to a stronger sense of connection with the people and world around you Purification (saucha) is a central aim of all yogic practices—the first principle of self-discipline (niyama) in Patanjali’s eight-limbed approach—as the ancient yogis believed that impurities in our internal body adversely affect our state of mind and prevent the attainment of true contentment. And kriyas—little-known ancient yoga techniques designed to cleanse the body, mind, and emotions—have far-reaching relevance in today’s society of over-consumption. In The Cleansing Power of Yoga, Swami Saradananda presents six main chapters of kriyas and other cleansing techniques relating to our five senses and the mind, each with a specific aim: • Clarifying our vision in life (sight) • Enhancing our communication skills (sound) • Optimizing our energy and allowing us to breathe more deeply (smell) • Nourishing us and enhancing our capacity to ‘digest’ life (taste) • Enhancing our connection with others (touch) • Simplifying our life and filling it with sublime thoughts (mind) Each chapter includes at least one yoga pose as well as a breathing exercise, mudra, mantra, cleansing chakra visualization and any more specific techniques relevant to optimal well-being in that area. Also included are routines for a wide range of conditions—from physical complaints such as headaches or tinnitus, to emotional ones such as sadness, guilt and anger. Unique, informative, and featuring beautiful colorful illustrations, The Cleansing Power of Yoga gives readers all the holistic detox tools they need to feel overall better, lighter, happier, and healthier in their own skin.

Yoga and Science in Pain Care Book Excerpt:

The book takes an integrated approach to pain rehabilitation and combines pain science, rehabilitation and yoga with evidence-based approaches from respected contributors. They demonstrate how to integrate the concepts, philosophies and practices of yoga and pain science in working with people in pain. An essential and often overlooked part of pain rehabilitation is listening to, working with, learning from, and validating the person in pain's lived experience. The book expounds on the movement to a more patient-valued, partnership-based biopsychosocial-spiritual model of healthcare where the patient is an active and empowered participant, as opposed to a model where the healthcare provider is 'fixing' the passive patient. It also explains how practitioners can address the entire human being in pain, and how to include the person as an expert for more effective and self-empowered care.

Scieno spirituality Book Excerpt:

Modern science based on logical reasoning has made human life a wonderful experience. We have almost conquered time and space with almost everything that exists within it. Humans should have been the happiest beings, but that is not the case. Something is missing in our pursuit of happiness. We need to take a deep breath and think over it. Spiritualists are the happiest persons. They command both respect and reverence from us. Let us not confuse spiritualist with an ascetic or a religious practitioner. It is all about the control of mind where all thoughts originate. Vedic knowledge, the repository for development of human life, states that the mind is all about consciousness. Consciousness is ‘the perception of what passes in the mind’. Modern science looks differently at a mind. Though it considers mind as a repository of all consciousness but it considers the mind as a physical process only. There is nothing spiritual about it. That makes the starting point of our search for connecting science with spirituality. The Vedic philosophy is developed around these thoughts. Yog Sutra credited to Patanjali, is a repository of yogic practices which recommend developing mental awareness through sense control, while another tradition called tantra says that senses have no role in controlling the mind. It provides alternative practices

Yoga Therapy for the Management of Hot Flushes Depression and Anxiety During the Perimenopause Book Excerpt:

This project defines the intervention of yoga therapy for perimenopausal symptoms of hot flushes, anxiety, and depression according to the principles of Ayurveda. This is important in light of research showing the costs versus the benefits of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), and the growing population of hormone users as the lifespan increases. The research shows that there is a basis for effective alternatives to HRT for women who cannot or choose not to supplement estrogen levels using pharmaceutical hormones. Ayurveda offers a diagnostic approach that includes consideration of a woman's individual constitution as a predisposing cause of menopausal symptoms. Through questionnaire and pulse diagnosis, a woman may determine her body type and be provided guidelines unique for her constitution. The intervention consists of an educational workshop and follows up with a yoga practice. The practice facilitates the perception of control, while encouraging surrender to the transition of perimenopause.

Re Encountering Jung Book Excerpt:

Since the split between Freud and Jung, psychoanalysis and analytical psychology have largely developed in an atmosphere of mutual disregard. Only in recent years have both discourses shown signs of an increasing willingness to engage. Re-Encountering Jung: Analytical Psychology and Contemporary Psychoanalysis is the first edited volume devoted to a reconciliation between these two fields. The contributors explore how Jungian thinking influences, challenges, and is challenged by recent developments in the psychoanalytic mainstream. In examining the nature of the split, figures from both sides of the conversation seek to establish lines of contrast and commonality so as to reflect an underlying belief in the value of reciprocal engagement. Each of the chapters in this collection engages the relationship between Jungian and psychoanalytic thinking with the intention of showing how both lines of discourse might have something to gain from attending more to the voice of the other. While several of the contributing authors offer new perceptions on historical concerns, the main thrust of the collection is in exploring contemporary debates. Re-Encountering Jung reflects a unique undertaking to address one of the longest-standing and most significant rifts in the history of depth psychology. It will be of great interest to all academics, students and clinicians working within the fields of psychoanalysis and analytical psychology.

Twenty Five Doors to Meditation Book Excerpt:

Twenty-Five Doors to Meditation is the first guide to provide extensive, comprehensive, and detailed information about a variety of meditation methods. Together, William Bodri and Lee Shu-Mei make sense of that seemingly conflicting information that exists today regarding the path to spiritual enlightenment. Each meditation technique is fully described as is the interrelationship between the different paths to enlightenment. The authors show how Buddhist techniques can be explained through Taoist principles, Christian techniques through Hindu principles, and so on. Each meditation technique is designed to help you attain samadhi, the crux of spiritual development. The authors explore the scientific basis behind each technique, developmental stages of accomplishment, and each path's effectiveness for entering samadhi. Especially useful is an extensive list of recommended references for the further study of individual techniques. An indespensable book for individuals searching to find the meditation technique that is best for them.
