Yoga and the Quest for the True Self Book Review:

More than 100,000 copies sold! Millions of Americans know yoga as a superb form of exercise and as a potent source of calm in the midst of our stress-filled lives. Far fewer are aware of the full promise of yoga as "the way of the fully alive human being"--a 4,000-year-old practical path of liberation that fits the needs of modern Western seekers with startling precision. Now one of America's leading scholars of yoga psychology--who is also a Western-trained psychotherapist--offers this marvelously lively and personal account of an ancient tradition that promises "the soul awake in this lifetime." Drawing on the vivid stories of practitioners at the largest yoga center in America, where he has lived and taught for more than ten years, Stephen Cope describes the philosophy, psychology, and practice of yoga--a practical science of development that urges us not to transcend or dissolve the self, but rather to encounter it more deeply. In this irreverent modern-day Pilgrim's Progress, Cope introduces us to an unforgettable cast of contemporary seekers--on the road to enlightenment carrying all the baggage of the human condition: confusion, loss, disappointment, addiction, and the eternal conflicts around sex and relationship. As he describes the subtle shifts of energy and consciousness that happen at each stage of the path, we discover that in yoga, "liberation" does not require us to leave life in the world for some transcendent spiritual plane. Life itself is the path. Above all, Cope shows how yoga can heal the suffering of self-estrangement that pervades our society, leading us to a new sense of purpose and to a deeper, more satisfying life in the world.

Overcoming Trauma through Yoga Book Review:

Survivors of trauma—whether abuse, accidents, or war—can end up profoundly wounded, betrayed by their bodies that failed to get them to safety and that are a source of pain. In order to fully heal from trauma, a connection must be made with oneself, including one’s body. The trauma-sensitive yoga described in this book moves beyond traditional talk therapies that focus on the mind, by bringing the body actively into the healing process. This allows trauma survivors to cultivate a more positive relationship to their body through gentle breath, mindfulness, and movement practices. Overcoming Trauma through Yoga is a book for survivors, clinicians, and yoga instructors who are interested in mind/body healing. It introduces trauma-sensitive yoga, a modified approach to yoga developed in collaboration between yoga teachers and clinicians at the Trauma Center at Justice Resource Institute, led by yoga teacher David Emerson, along with medical doctor Bessel van der Kolk. The book begins with an in-depth description of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), including a description of how trauma is held in the body and the need for body-based treatment. It offers a brief history of yoga, describes various styles of yoga commonly found in Western practice, and identifies four key themes of trauma-sensitive yoga. Chair-based exercises are described that can be incorporated into individual or group therapy, targeting specific treatment goals, and modifications are offered for mat-based yoga classes. Each exercise includes trauma-sensitive language to introduce the practice, as well as photographs to illustrate the poses. The practices have been offered to a wide range of individuals and groups, including men and women, teens, returning veterans, and others. Rounded out by valuable quotes and case stories, the book presents mindfulness, breathing, and yoga exercises that can be used by home practitioners, yoga teachers, and therapists as a way to cultivate awareness, tolerance, and an increased acceptance of the self.

Creating more clarity within you and in your choices than you may have ever known before. Imagine that feeling that you love after a deep yoga or meditation practice staying with you throughout your entire day, rather than diminishing the moment you get back to your car. Imagine instead, that you can carry this feeling with you into every circumstance and situation for the rest of the day, developing a new experience of focus and of consistent well-being, even in scenarios that would normally leave you feeling stressed and anxious. How amazing would it feel to cultivate this so that it grows into becoming a new way of life, becoming a powerful new habit that supports and energizes you everyday in any situation? You know that a calm, confident, self-assured identity is magnetic, and this personal sense of confidence creates a deep self reliance and mastery that allows you to stay calm and balanced in every situation of life. Take what you sense really matters and put it into action so that you can finally know "YES, I am on my path doing exactly what I was born to do " Yoga for Transformation can completely reshape the balance of your life. From stress and fatigue to energized awareness and abundant creativity. From stagnation and feeling trapped in a loop, to finally breaking free to establish yourself in ways that have up till now, felt stuck at the dream or planning stage for far too long. Yoga for Transformation is a life practice, one rooted in the ancient science of yoga but integrated for a throughly modern approach. Learn to expand that space that you feel on the mat, and carry it forward into every aspect of your life off of it. Reimagine life as it is, to one you deeply desire it to be, then create the foundation and the framework to achieving it. In only 42 days, you create a new habit of excellence by breaking the old habits that actively prevent it. Yoga for Transformation is a cellular, soul-level practice that generates a cohesive body, mind and spirit. Only when you create this solid triumvirate state, can your inner foundation be strong. Invest in your self, in your health and your wellbeing for the long haul. Recreate your life from the inside out, and create not just a new way of thinking, but an entirely new habitual way of Being. Yoga for Transformation Practitioners report the benefits of: * Increased Intuition * Feelings of being present in daily life, not just watching it pass by * Improved communication in relationships * Greater sense of self-mastery * The ability to understand what they truly want, and how to create the roadmap to get there. The secret is, the world that you want to inhabit already lives within you. Becoming aware of it helps you to achieve it. This system is a potent combination of yoga and hypnotherapy techniques combined to awaken awareness in your life, so that you become the creator of it. Specific, layered affirmations with yoga mudra, breath-work, meditations, and a journaling practice combined every day for 42 days: - Overcome bad habits - Unlock feelings of possibility - Release beliefs of lack or limitation - Awaken your knowing of what truly matters most in your life - YOU.

Reconstructing Reality Book Review:

Most of us do not remember that we have volunteered to remember our multidimensional heritage and unite with our true SELF in the higher worlds. Remembering this unity would be difficult indeed with the knowledge of only one lifetime. Fortunately, as we each begin to awaken, we remember our "past lives." These "past lives" are actually all occurring at the same "time" in different space-time coordinates. Shature, the main character, is studying on the fifth dimension and acting as the Higher Self to her different, third dimensional lives. Shature does this by entering into a dome, which allows her to interface with the physical world. As she moves through these layers of multidimensional love, she discovers what she was and who she is meant to be.

Yoga Therapy Theory Book Review:

Yoga therapy holds the key to effectively addressing stress and lifestyle diseases. Conventional medicine is useful for alleviating symptoms, but yoga therapy that is grounded in traditional theory identifies and addresses causes deeper than the physical body. Yoga therapy practices build resistance to stress and increase resilience. Kazuo Keishin Kimura is a Raja Yoga Acharya who has devoted himself to making traditional yogic wisdom accessible in Japan. With this English translation of his book, he hopes to contribute internationally to yoga therapy's development as a respected modality. In this book, Kimura points out how traditional yoga theory is missing from modern-day yoga instruction. He then explains traditional yoga's view of the mind-body complex as five koshas (sheaths), each with specific functions and attributes. Just as medical doctors examine patients before deciding on treatment, yoga therapists must obtain informed consent and assess the conditions of all koshas. Understanding yoga's horse-drawn chariot metaphor for human structure and function is also helpful to see beyond symptoms and to identify root causes of disease. Kimura skillfully guides readers to understand these two theories of human structure and function, and illustrates how they can be incorporated into both yoga therapy assessment and practice.

Number System in Samskrit Book Review:

Vedanga Jyothisha says - "Like the crest of the peacock, like the gem on the head of a snake, so is Mathematics at the head of all knowledge". Indian Mathematicians are numerous - Pingala, Aryabhata, Bhaskara, Brahmagupta, Kaatyaayana, Mahaaveeraacaarya, Maadhava, Sreedharaacaarya, Bhaarati Krishna Teerthaji Maharaaj and so on. Their contributions to the world of Mathematics are lot many - place value system, importance of 'Zero', etc. Vedas and Mathematics are inseparable. It is an integral part of Vedas, which origin is yet to be clearly specified. Hence the origin of Indian Mathematics also cannot be defined. They used different systems to represent numbers - the major three systems are Katapayaadi Sankhyaa, Bhoota Sankhya and Aryabhateeya Sankhya. These system of numbers were used to represent mathematics through poetic words - dual expertise. It is an ocean. This book tries to bring out a drop from this ocean.

Bentley Book Review:

Bentley Hawthorne and his brothers ruled our high school-and my fantasies-years ago. I thought I moved on from that crush when I graduated, but I couldn't have been more wrong. There's something dangerous about a Hawthorne boy, and the most dangerous one is Bentley.He's tattooed, has slicked-back hair, and can make any woman's engine purr like a kitten. He's wrong for me in every way, but sometimes it's better to be wrong than right.I'm just a shy, introverted girl trying to get through college who's dreamed of being with Bentley Hawthorne since I first laid eyes on him in high school. I know I shouldn't have these feelings, but when my car broke down on the side of the road late one night and he was there to save the day, how could I keep away?------------------------I've never been one to deal with relationships. I had one once, but it ended in heartbreak, and I don't want to take the risk of that happening again, instead dealing in casual one-night flings.I'm the oldest of three, the one in charge, the one my brothers look up to. I can fix anything mechanical, especially cars, so when I came across a stranded woman one night, I pulled over to help, thinking I was being a good citizen. Little did I know what she was capable of, especially when it came to affairs of the heart-my heart.Though I have my problems, I know I can't let this one get away, no matter what challenges come our way-and boy, will they come our way.This story features alternating POVs by chapter. This is a non-cliffhanger HEA and the first in a trilogy where each book focuses on a different Hawthorne brother. Each story is independent of the others, and they can be read in any order.

False Bodies True Selves Book Review:

False Bodies, True Selves explores the phenomenon of growing numbers of people in western society and beyond completely embedding their sense of identity in their appearance. Unlike other books which address either theoretical models of appearance-focused identity struggles or explore lived experiences of appearance-based battles, False Bodies delves into both. Importantly, the spiritual aspects of what it is to become enemies with one's body are given centre stage in the context of Donald Winnicott's theory of the true Self and the false Self. The book begins by looking at some of the myths, superstitions and fairy tales related to mirrors before moving on to western society's current obsession with appearance, which seems to have been compounded by the mass media. After looking at some of the most common manifestations of appearance-focused anguish including eating disorders and body dysmorphia, it begins to unpick the possible underlying meanings beneath such struggles with a particular emphasis on issues of a systemic nature.
