"Here is a comprehensive survey of the full breadth and depth of the 5,000-year-old Yoga tradition, emphasizing its potent philosophy and spiritual vision. Georg Feuerstein demonstrates that Yoga is much more than a system of physical exercises—it is a profound path of self-transformation that encompasses a range of teachings, practices, and sacred texts that can help us cultivate wisdom, balance, and inner freedom, as well as physical health. Feuerstein is one of the few Western scholar-teachers of Yoga whose writing and teaching penetrate the full richness and depth of this ancient tradition. Here he offers a collection of essays touching on all facets of the discipline. Topics include: • The different branches and styles of Yoga • The ethical teachings of Yoga • Yoga and vegetarianism • Meditation and mantras • Choosing a teacher • Tantric Yoga • The experience of ecstasy

How did an ancient Indian spiritual discipline turn into a $20+ billion-a-year mainstay of the global wellness industry? What happened along yoga's winding path from the caves and forests of the sages to the gyms, hospitals and village halls of the modern West? This comprehensive history sets yoga in its global cultural context for the first time. It leads us on a fascinating journey across the world, from arcane religious rituals and medieval body-magic, through muscular Christianity and the British Raj, to the Indian nationalist movement and the arrival of yoga in the twentieth-century West. We discover how the practice reached its present-day ubiquity and how it became embedded in powerful social currents shaping the world's future, such as feminism, digital media, celebrity culture, the stress pandemic and the quest for an authentic identity in the face of unprecedented change. Shearer's revealing history boasts a colorful cast of characters past and present, who tell an engaging tale of scholars and scandal, science and spirit, wisdom and waywardness. This is the untold story of yoga, warts and all.

Deeper Still is the next stage of an ongoing process and a consequence of further inquiry into the yoga experience from author John Stirk. Following on from The Original Body this book invites an even deeper immersion into the reality of practice and the totality of personal experience in accessing the power of our inner teacher.As the theme of this book unfolds the reader is invited towards a sensory understanding leading to profound insight. Teachers using this book will be able to share with their students the clarity, mental space and basic wisdom that emerges as a result of their awakening physiology. We may frequently acknowledge that we are there with the group. Experience may tell us that 'there-ness' is not fixed, that it is based on an unknown element upon which all creativity is founded. Deeper Still goes beyond current experience and invites teachers to write their own story, develop their own script, ride the uncatchable wave that might be called yoga, and open up creativity to the next level.Deeper Still enables teachers to take their students to a deeper dimension. It also:provides a basis for off the chart experiencesappeals to the depth mind through a deepening physical experienceinvites a more profound contact with groupsbrings out the essence of yoga in students as a consequence of a deeper creativityhighlights emergent insight as a feature of group workblends an ancient concept with modern western yogadraws attention to the relationship between soft tissue sensitivity and the quality of xonsciousnessexamines the potential for abundant resonance in group work and the so called 'universal experience'

Indian psychology is a distinct psychological tradition rooted in the native Indian ethos. It manifests in the multitude of practices prevailing in the Indian subcontinent for centuries. Unlike the mainstream psychology, Indian psychology is not overwhelmingly materialist-reductionist in character. It goes beyond the conventional third-person forms of observation to include the study of first-person phenomena such as subjective experience in its various manifestations and associated cognitive phenomena. It does not exclude the investigation of extraordinary states of consciousness and exceptional human abilities. The quintessence of Indian nature is its synthetic stance that results in a magical bridging of dichotomies such as natural and supernatural, secular and sacred, and transactional and transcendental. The result is a psychology that is practical, positive, holistic and inclusive. The Handbook of Indian Psychology is an attempt to explore the concepts, methods and models of psychology systematically from the above perspective. The Handbook is the result of the collective efforts of more than thirty leading international scholars with interdisciplinary backgrounds. In thirty-one chapters, the authors depict the nuances of classical Indian thought, discuss their relevance to contemporary concerns, and draw out the implications and applications for teaching, research and practice of psychology.

One of our greatest allies today is Yoga - not as most people know it but the deeper dimension of Yoga; that which brings about an introduction to your true self and ultimately a lasting transformation. Yoga has been with us for thousands of years but as a collective we have merely scraped the surface. Put another way, it contains all the elements to help liberate us from the difficulties and suffering our world is experiencing today.Sacred Alignment is a unique book written to shed light on an ancient enigma that has been with us for millennia. If you are seeking answers or even guidance to life's deeper dilemmas then it's possible that this book will present a missing piece of one of life's greatest puzzles: How to unite our physical and our spiritual; the practical and mystical; the seen and the unseen and resolve the duality of living these components separately. This book is a collection of discoveries that have come about through both direct experience and the channeling of information during deep meditative states. Originally inspired by Patanjalis 8 limbs of Yoga, Sacred Alignment dares to tie together many threads of ancient knowledge and mold them into a new teaching that is relevant to our current times.

Secrets of Gay Tantra A Gay Centered Path to Enlightenment

In this volume that follows Gay Tantra (Xlibris 2000) and Essays on Gay Tantra (Xlibris 2000), William Schindler, a.k.a. Brother William, invites the reader into deeper and previously mostly secret aspects of Tantric philosophy and practice. Traditional Tantra teaches methods of spiritual enlightenment-not sexual practices. In traditional Tantra sexuality and other types of sensuality are integrated into a whole-life approach to spirituality. But merely calling a practice or technique "Tantra" does not make it so. Traditional Tantra can only be learned from one who has studied and practiced in a line of enlightened Gurus. Brother William has been studying and practicing traditional Hindu Tantra since 1969 both in India and America, and since 1997, when he founded Ashram West, he has been teaching his adaptation of traditional Tantra for gay-identified persons, making intelligible the esoteric teachings of the ancient tradition.
