These habits and patterns are explored through the lens of character positions, a body of knowledge taken from post-Reichian psychotherapy. This book breaks new ground in weaving together important threads from meditation, body psychotherapy, and Buddhism, encouraging the reader to be more present with their experience of being an integrated body-mind. The tone is warm, immediate and accessible, reflecting the enthusiasm of the author for meditation and life.

Anger is like fire. Sometimes it can be useful, sometimes it can be destructive, sometimes it can feel that we just can't get a spark started although we feel like we’re sitting on a powder keg. We're all human and we all have anger, whether others see us as angry and bitter or smiling and carefree. This book is written to help you understand your own anger, whether it stems from fear, sadness, resentment, control, self-blame or holding on to old pain. It's written to help those who feel burdened with anger that they just can't express, those who feel the pain of almost overwhelming anger or those who find it difficult to get through the day without one really good tantrum. “To me, you are a hero... You have learned to take something negative in your life and make it a positive... a gift to others. It doesn't get any better than that. Don't doubt that you are capable of helping others...” Susan Jeffers, Ph.D. author of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway and Embracing Uncertainty

Ged Sumner introduces the unique Body Intelligence form of meditation which creates a deeply felt connection with the physical body. The exercises and meditations inspire readers to take time out from the stresses of modern life, and helps them to tune in to subtle states of life that lie within the body. Pathways are provided to access different levels of connections, from the powerful, collective wholeness of the diaphragm to the calmness and flow of the fluid body. With a little practice a deep relationship and awareness emerges. The innovative methods Sumner describes allow practitioners to open up their awareness of the body's sensations, bringing about a powerful sense of presence and experience of the now. This can lead to remarkable meditative states of bliss, energy and trauma resolution. An original approach, this book will be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in meditation, particularly practitioners of craniosacral therapy, chi kung, martial arts, shiatsu, yoga, Rolfing, massage and anyone who uses meditation to deepen and support their practice.

In spiritual teacher Osho's Aspects of Meditation Book 1: The Body, the First Step, you'll discover a deeper understanding of meditation through an investigation into the subtle workings of the mind, focusing on the body. The West has taken to meditation with great enthusiasm. We contemplate. We concentrate. We embrace mindfulness techniques and a multitude of mantras. We have undertaken to “do” meditation. The Aspects of Meditation series is comprised of brief, precious texts in which Osho shows us the core of meditation is not about sitting silently or chanting a mantra. It is, instead, a question of understanding the subtle workings of the mind. In Book 1, Osho re-introduces us to our body, focusing on the “root” of the human, the soul.

Energy healing is a traditional Eastern therapy that exists today as alternative medicine in the West. To gain the most benefits, the roots and principles of therapeutic energy healing evident in Taoism, Buddhism, traditional Oriental medicine, and martial arts practices, need to be understood to nurture effective healing in contemporary living. Since energy healing is an oral tradition and there are few genuine healers today who can truly cure or transmit true teachings. In the author's travels to South-East Asia in Penang, he was fortunate to meet a remarkable master energy healer of Qigong, Sifu Yap Soon Yeong, who is the founder of Chaoyi Fanhuan Qigong (CFQ). The author soon became convinced that CFQ was unique in that it is the only energy healing system that is truly good enough to deliver on its claims on transforming mind, body, and spirit. This book records, for the first time, Master Yap’s CFQ or “radiant Goldbody energy meditation” healing system.
