Eastern Body, Western Mind

44 ratings


In Eastern Body, Western Mind, chakra authority Anodea Judith has brought a fresh approach to the yoga-based Eastern chakra system, adapting it to the Western framework of Jungian psychology, somatic therapy, childhood developmental theory, and metaphysics. This groundbreaking work in transpersonal psychology has been revised and redesigned for a more accessible presentation. Arranged schematically, the book uses the inherent structure of the chakra system as a map upon which to chart our Western understanding of individual development. Each chapter focuses on a single chakra, starting with a description of its characteristics, then exploring its particular childhood developmental patterns, traumas and abuses, and how to heal and maintain balance. Illuminated with personal anecdotes and case studies, Eastern Body, Western Mind seamlessly merges the East and West, science and philosophy, and psychology and spirituality into a compelling interpretation of the chakra system and its relevance for Westerners today. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

The Chakra System

30 ratings


Through her pioneering work with the chakra system, Anodea Judith has mapped the striking connections between the yogic healing arts and modern psychology as well as demonstrated how a combination of both can be dramatically more effective than using either one alone. In The Chakra System, listeners join Judith in 12 sessions of personal one-on-one guidance to learn how to use the seven chakras, or energy centers, to strengthen and focus their personal power, improve intimate relationships, enhance intuition, and enter into their highest spiritual wisdom. What, exactly, does it feel like when a chakra is deficient, excessive, or blocked? Can our early life experiences affect the energetic patterns that shape our physical and emotional well-being as adults? If so, how do we clear these blockages? Anodea Judith addresses these and many other issues using the same proven meditations, visualizations, and moving postures taught in her acclaimed chakra seminars. Even for people who have studied the chakra system for years, one question often remains: How do I actually work with the chakras to assist in healing? With The Chakra System, Anodea Judith responds with the first guided audio learning course about chakra work - the ultimate curriculum for tapping the hidden energy matrix of the body. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Four Seconds: A Memoir


“I’m not going to try it,” I said.  “You’ll like it,” she argued.  “I know I’ll like it,” I said. “That’s why I’m not going to try it.”  “Try it just this once and I’ll never ask you to do it again.”  That was a deal. I slipped back into the driver’s seat while Pam corn-rowed two neat lines of the silky white powder on the back of a plastic cassette tape cover.  Fifteen hundred dollars every month, an abusive boyfriend, a molested child, a lost family, hotels for houses, a ruined leg, a gun to my head, a knife to my butt, and a jail cell all my own. Black eyes, bruised days, broken hours. Looking back, it seems strange what I gave up to get my roommate off my back. In her debut memoir, Andrade tells of her years with cocaine and crystal methamphetamine using, then selling, until all she had left of the life she wanted was a chalk outline and a pack of cigarettes. This is the story of her use and recovery, of the people who frustrated and inspired her, of the decision to leave the drug world. It is the story of her slow, often unsteady walk home.
