Aligned, Relaxed, Resilient: The Physical Foundations of Mindfulness
Aligned, Relaxed, Resilient
The Physical Foundations of Mindfulness
Paperback      ISBN: 1570625182

The emphasis on the mind in meditation can be somewhat misleading: If we pay attention only to mental processes and overlook the experience of the body, we can remain stuck in our heads and not be able to break free of the involuntary thinking that we find so claustrophobic and toxic. This short, practical guide helps us embrace the fact of our embodiment--the experience of the sensations, movements, and gestures of the body--and to realize that mindfulness is the natural state of awareness of a body that has learned how to experience its feeling presence. Johnson takes us through the three primary principles of the posture of meditation: alignment, relaxation, and resilience. He devotes a large part of each chapter to specific practices to help the reader experience different aspects of physical presence. This book is of interest to meditators of all traditions--Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, Jews, and others--as well as therapists, bodyworkers, and anyone interested in body-centered psychology and other natural modes of healing.

Go on A Powerful Journey Through Daily Affirmations and Find the Healing You Deserve

Discover a new philosophical take on life where you're taught that healing doesn't happen when you're asleep. It's when you're awake. David Kundtz, the author of Quiet Mind, embarks on an intimate journey of self-discovery through meditation.

Life is busy. Between relationships, work, and finding a quiet space for ourselves, it's often easy to get lost in the hurriedness of our day-to-day activities. This personal guide brings balance back into your life by teaching you to be mindful and more "awake."

Now is the time to open your eyes. As the Navajo proverb says, "When we are pretending to be asleep, no one can awaken us." We must stop the pretending and "awaken" ourselves. By taking a minute out of your day to meditate and reflect, you'll activate your self-development and realign your spirit. Take this personal guidebook with you through all situations you encounter and learn to truly "awaken" your spiritual side. Awakened Mind offers:

  • Simple yet powerful positive affirmations for each day
  • Meditative lessons to help you connect with your inner self
  • Reflections on life, gratitude, and spirituality

If you enjoyed transformative books like Wheels of Life, Light Is the New Black, or Practical Law of Attraction, then you'll love Awakened Mind.

Somatic Meditation for Discovering Our Deepest Life
Paperback      ISBN: 1611803713
A senior Buddhist teacher offers fundamental body-based meditation practices that prove enlightenment is as close to you as your own body

Many of us experience life through so many conceptual filters that we never recognize the freedom and joy that are inherent in us--and are in fact the essence of who we are. We can grow old not realizing that one of the most powerful tools to escape the painful knots we tie ourselves in is, literally, at our fingertips: our body.

With The Awakening Body, Reggie Ray cracks open the shell of the mind-body dichotomy and presents six fundamental body-based practices that connect us back to who we really are. These practices cut through the mental fabrications through which we experience our world and lead us directly to the richness of living a fully present, embodied human life.

This book includes a link to free downloads of recorded guided practices.
