Book Description
We all carry within ourselves the potential to become a Buddha in our own right. This beautiful package, featuring 53 spectacular cards, mind-expanding sutras, and an accompanying guide are the keys to unlocking that power. They aid the process of awakening, of giving meaning and significance to our lives. Each gorgeous card features a photograph of a Buddha statue, a short quotation from the book known as the Dhammapada, and commentary on the sutra. Choose a card at the beginning of each week, and keep it with you always to refer to during the day to absorb its lessons.

The enlightening sutras include: He Watches, He Is Clear; How Can You Quarrel?;...


The Relaxation and Stress Reduction Workbook

Book Review
Although the sheer size of this dense workbook might cause initial hyperventilation--280 full-size sheets of text--take heart (and a deep breath!): the many self-assessment tools and calming techniques presented in this fifth edition can help overcome anxiety and promote physical and emotional well-being. First introduced in 1980, the book received praise for presenting a comprehensive look at stress, its physical manifestations, and the multiple ways it can be managed. Twenty years later, its well-organized chapters on breathing, relaxation, meditation, thought stopping, and body awareness still guide the reader through copious self-help techniques to try and, eventually, master. Other chapters, including job stress management, goal setting and time management, and assertiveness training, focus on daily scenarios people...

Five Good Minutes

Book Review
Feeling overwhelmed on a daily basis is no fun for anyone, but changing your mindset requires time that just doesn't exist. Or does it? Five Good Minutes claims time can be found, and backs up that claim with 100 simple exercises that help get your day off to a better start. Dr. Jeffrey Brantley (Calming Your Anxious Mind) has created easy ways of modifying things you already do every day--like taking a shower--into moments that combine grateful awareness with deep relaxation.

Most of the exercises begin with what the author calls "breathing mindfully", and learning that technique is the only item in the book that might take more than five minutes. The nine-step instructions for a basic form of meditation are easy to follow, but could take a little practice if you're a newcomer to such techniques. You're...

Book Description
Coloring the circular designs known as mandalas is a creative activity that brings relaxation, healing, and self-understanding. Susanne Fincher’s first such coloring book, Coloring Mandalas, presented designs organized according to a scheme of twelve archetypal stages that represents a cycle of personal growth. This sequel focuses on a single one of these stages, “Crystallization,” which is associated with the completion of a cycle of growth.
Imagine a fully opened rose in a sunny garden, releasing its fragrance as it gently bobs in a summer breeze. This is the feeling of the stage of Crystallization–a time of reaping rewards and benefits from the work we have performed; of realizing and appreciating our achievements; of resting in the pleasure of having fulfilled a personal...

Book Description
Yoga Nidra means "Yogic Sleep". It is a deep relaxation in which you leave the waking state, go past the dreaming state, and enter into the deep sleep state, while remaining fully awake and alert. This state of awareness is extremely beneficial, both for releasing stress, and for experiencing the joy of subtler spiritual explorations or experiences. The voice will systematically guide you to explore your physical body, then move through 61 specific points within the body, and then practice ascending breath awareness along the body and spine. Your attention will be brought to the space between the eyebrows, then to the throat, and finally to the heart center, where you will go deep into stillness and silence, beyond the activities of the mind. Following the custom of the ancient sages, the depth of Yoga Nidra comes...
