Buddhism for Beginners covers the most fundamental questions and issues that arise in the minds of modern Western individuals who are new to this tradition of practical spirituality. Written in clear and engaging language, this book presents the Buddhist approach to the fundamental issues and concerns of daily life. Ven. Chodron guides us through the basic tenets of Buddhism, encouraging and instructing us in how to live a more peaceful, mindful and satisfying life. She untangles our confusions and leads us through the most basic aspects of this rich, living spiritual tradition.
Chamalu tells the story of a young woman's initiation into Andean wisdom traditions under the guidance of Chamalu, a Quechua shaman. The sacred way of the heart, he tells her, is a spiritual journey that must be undergone by anyone who aspires to be a Wanderer--a person who transcends illusion and embraces primal reality, unmediated by religious doctrine or intellectual constructs. The woman asks him to show her how to release herself from the emotional pain that paralyzes her, and gradually, over a series of meetings, Chamau reveals to her the secret of reconnecting with the spirits of the ancestors and of Pachamama, Mother Earth.
Presented as a series of conversations, Chamalu encompasses teachings that can be lived and experienced by anyone who truly desires to learn.
Simply told in language that appeals directly to the heart, Chamalu allows the reader to experience Andean shamanic teachings based on the ancient Inca heritage of wisdom, inner power, simplicity, and joy.
Rooted in traditional Toltec wisdom beliefs, four agreements in life are essential steps on the path to personal freedom.
Doreen Virtue and James Van Praagh wrote the book that they wished they could have had when they were both grieving losses.
Do you ever feel that your world is so "civilized" you can't express yourself? That there is a part of you that needs to be remembered? Evelyn Rysdyk can help you understand and use this feeling to transform your life. She asserts that although most of us have been assimilated into our agriculturally-based society full of rules and regulations and community care, many of us still possess the urgent instincts of the hunter -- who lives in the moment -- and the gatherer -- who feels part of the great fabric of life and thrives on the uncertainties of the journey. You'll discover how to get in touch with these facets of your inner self and develop your personal creative energy by using shamanic journeying, meditation, movement, sound, and storytelling. Rysdyk offers a renewed way of living, full of richness, peace, health, and harmony for ourselves and the future of our planet.
