Description

Details

Ancient Buddhist meditations and modern Western somatic therapy are united in this fascinating book. Both philosophies — and their healing capabilities — recognize that a structurally balanced human body is the key to a mentally and emotionally balanced human mind. This book explains the beautiful simplicity of these healing techniques and how to make them part of your life. Following its path, you’ll learn how to attain the spiritual and physical balance needed to create your own optimum environment through:

-Understanding the experience of balance
-Balancing time, present time and change
-Balancing sound, vision and the components of reality
-Balancing your heart and breath
-Balancing “luminous vision” and the “luminous world”
-Understanding suffering and its causes
-Understanding your heart and breath and how they work together to help create balance


What readers are saying about this book:

“This book signals a new and sorely needed vitality in a field which, even though it is about life, so often seems to bring out the gray and pedantic in its champions.”
— Peter Melchior, senior faculty member, the Guild for Structural Integration
