Beyond Mindfulness

The Direct Approach to Lasting Peace, Happiness, and Love

By Stephan Bodian

  • Paperback
  • £P.O.R.

"Stephan Bodian takes us beyond mere words, ideas, and mental fabrications into the very heart of the matter. I heartily recommend this excellent book." - Lama Surya Das, bestselling author of Awakening the Buddha Within and Awakening to the Sacred

Written by best-selling author, meditation expert, psychotherapist, and spiritual teacher Stephan Bodian, this book takes you beyond familiar mindfulness practices by offering guided meditations and direct pointers that invite you to realize your natural state of inherent wakefulness and peace. No regular practice is required, just the willingness to open yourself to a transformative new way of experiencing life.
Mindfulness has permeated our modern lives, and with good reason-it's been proven to boost mood, reduce stress, improve health, and maximize performance. But in our achievement-oriented culture, the practice of mindfulness can feel laborious and mechanical, like one more task on your endless to-do list. What if you could let go of effort and struggle and relax back into the happiness and ease that is your birthright-and is always readily available to you?
Beyond Mindfulness offers teachings and practices based on the direct approach to spiritual awakening that take you beyond the mechanics of being mindful and open you to the non-dual dimension of being, where the separation between self and other reveals itself to be a painful but seductive illusion. Once you realize this new way of seeing, you'll learn how to move beyond mindfulness into awakened awareness and discover that the love, compassion, wholeness, health, and happiness you've been seeking were there all along.

The Art of Psychic Reiki

Lisa Campion, Rhys Thomas
Authors:
Lisa Campion, Rhys Thomas

Reiki is a gentle yet powerful, hands-on energy healing method from Japan that's been gaining in popularity over the last century-not only with bodyworkers and massage therapists in the West but also with medical professionals who can attest to its healing power. Born from the author's decades of experience with Reiki healing and her own methods, The Art of Psychic Reiki provides everything you need to know about this healing art, including the critical psychic development and empathy training that prepares healers to go out and do the work they were meant to do.If you're drawn to the healing art of Reiki, you might be a highly sensitive person, with high levels of empathy, intuition, and latent psychic abilities (a combination of intuition and inner knowing, plus the ability to connect with higher wisdom). And since Reiki is a form of energy healing, many new practitioners may experience what's called a psychic opening as they learn or practice. For this reason, it's important that every Reiki practitioner master the ability to navigate their empathic and psychic sensitivities while engaged in this work-and this book can help.Whether you're new to Reiki or you're a practitioner seeking to deepen your knowledge and enhance your skills, with this guide you'll learn how to use Reiki to heal yourself and others, cultivate and trust your natural intuition, develop your empathic and psychic abilities, work with your spirit guides, and ground and protect yourself as a practitioner of this sacred healing art.

The Healing Power of Mindfulness

Jon Kabat-Zinn
Authors:
Jon Kabat-Zinn

More than twenty years ago, Jon Kabat-Zinn changed the way we thought about awareness in everyday life with his now-classic introduction to mindfulness, Wherever You Go, There You Are. He followed that up with 2005's Coming to Our Senses, the definitive book for our time on the connection between mindfulness and our well-being on every level, physical, cognitive, emotional, social, planetary, and spiritual.Now, Coming to Our Senses is being repackaged into 4 smaller books, each focusing on a different aspect of mindfulness, and each with a new foreword written by the author. In the third of these books, The Healing Power of Mindfulness (which was originally published as Part V and Part VI of Coming to Our Senses), Kabat-Zinn focuses on the ways mindfulness can change the body and rewire the mind--explaining what we're learning about neuroplasticity and the brain, how meditation can affect the immune system, and what mindfulness can teach us about facing impermanence and, eventually, the end of our own lives. By "coming to our senses"--both literally and metaphorically--we can become more compassionate, more embodied, more aware human beings, and in the process, contribute to the healing of the body politic as well as our own lives in ways both little and big.

Shakti Rising

Kavitha M Chinnaiyan
Authors:
Kavitha M Chinnaiyan

The wisdom of the Mahavidyas, the ten wisdom goddesses who represent the interconnected darkness and light within all of us, has been steeped in esoteric and mystical descriptions that made them seem irrelevant to ordinary life. In this book, written by a respected cardiologist who found herself on a spiritual search for the highest truth, you're invited to explore this ancient knowledge and learn how it can be applied to daily struggles and triumphs as well as how it can help you find unreserved self-love and acceptance.The pursuit of contentment is an innate part of the human experience, arising from a fundamental sense of lack or inadequacy-all the things we believe to be wrong with us when we compare or judge ourselves. In our search for peace and happiness, we may find ourselves fighting the shadows within us, trying to repress or disown certain qualities, especially our anger, violence, discomfort, craving, and disappointment. But in order to stop this fight, we must expand our understanding beyond the dualities of good versus bad, right versus wrong, and beautiful versus ugly, and accept the parts of ourselves we've tried to deny.Pulling from Eastern traditions including tantra and yoga, and focusing on the feminine principle of divine energy also known as Shakti, this book bridges the divide between dualistic concepts and non-dual philosophy. By exploring the symbolism of the Mahavidyas (Kali, Tara, Tripurasundari, Bhuvaneshwari, Tripura Bhairavi, Chinnamasta, Dhumavati, Baglamukhi, Matangi, and Kamalatmika) - each with a veiled face representing a destructive quality that perpetuates ignorance and suffering, and a true face representing the wisdom that stimulates profound transformation and liberation - you'll learn to embrace and incorporate every aspect of who you are.With practices, self-inquiry prompts, and stories from the author's own spiritual seeking, this exploration of the divine feminine will gently reveal the source of your fear, pain, and suffering, showing you that when you allow those parts of yourself to arise and simply be, you can finally begin to heal, overcome your limitations, and open to the light and beauty of your true nature

White Fire

Mooji
Authors:
Mooji

Brimming with powerful quotes and sayings, this book can ignite a burning flame within your heart, clearing away confusion and doubt and leading you into the pure stillness of being: "Fire burns everything leaving only ashes. But there is a fire so fierce it burns even ashes-White Fire. Burn me like this, O White Fire, Grace of God, until nothing remains but You."Most people seek meaning and fulfillment amidst the busyness, pain, and uncertainty of their daily lives. Some turn to the power of religion and prayer, while others sink deeply into introspection to discover their own answers. If you've found yourself on this search for self-discovery and complete realization, Mooji's approach, which combines deep spirituality with non-dual self-inquiry, can help you put an end to your suffering and find inner peace.Each of the quotes in White Fire is a clear and direct pointing toward Truth that, once discovered, can dispel the delusions and suffering common to human experiencing, and reveal your true nature as perfect and timeless being. Divided into five sections, and with color photographs and Mooji's elegant ink drawings throughout, this book covers a wide range of issues -especially those based on strong identification with thoughts, feelings, and personal problems - with a steady deepening of the teachings as the book progresses.In Mooji's own words, "Only when the ego is slain by the white fire of pure seeing will the light be set free - the light that illumines the whole world."

The Unbelievable Happiness of What Is

Jon Bernie, Adyashanti
Authors:
Jon Bernie, Adyashanti

What do you really want-isn't it happiness? And what keeps you from being happy? Could it be that your need to cling so tightly to what you believe-about yourself and life, about how things should be-is what's holding you back? In The Unbelievable Happiness of What Is, a contemporary spiritual teacher in the non-duality tradition reveals how confronting and letting go of our negative beliefs about ourselves and the world ultimately sets us on the path toward an awakened life of profound joy, meaning, and purpose.We all want peace and freedom and love and happiness, we all want to be fulfilled, but so many of us fail to reach the level of contentment we've built up in our minds, often believing there's something wrong with us and blaming ourselves, others, or circumstances for our perceived lack of accomplishment or satisfaction. But the truth is, happiness is not something you have to get or achieve, because it's something you already have-in fact, it's what you already are.With this book, author Jon Bernie-counselor, healer, and teacher in the lineage of Adyashanti-sheds light on the struggle to find happiness, showing how our unexamined beliefs distort our identities and make us suffer by creating unconscious tension in our bodies and minds. You'll learn how to bring awareness to these patterns and begin to unravel the tightly held, negative beliefs that have overshadowed your existence, finally moving through them and into a brightening of experience and the realization of true happiness, liberation, peace, and fulfillment.Using this compassionate, heart-centered approach, you'll work with your feelings rather than resist them, and find guidance and support in surrendering to the relief of not knowing. You'll also learn to relax into and live asawareness in your day-to-day life. Most importantly, you'll discover that which you've been seeking but has never really been out of reach-something that is, indeed, beyond belief: the unbelievable happiness of accepting what is.

Rebirth

Kamal Ravikant
Authors:
Kamal Ravikant

Inspired by the author's experience of losing his father and walking the five-hundred and fifty mile Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in Spain, REBIRTH is a novel that follows the main character Amit on his quest to reconcile life's critical questions and to find answers we all seek. The reader walks alongside Amit as he runs from his life, only to learn it's impossible to run from the one person who matters most, himself. This story gets to the heart of some of life's most difficult lessons about family, devotion, and ambition. Amit's the quest is one we all take as we seek to get to the core of our own inner conflict, relationships, and most importantly, learn to love and forgive ourselves. Exploration of themes like self-love and forgiveness are central to the author's writing and have resonated with thousands of readers, from millennials to boomers.Amit's journey in REBIRTH is part physical and entirely psychological and spiritual. His is a universal pilgrimage to better understand how actions we've taken put us where we are, and how we can change our path to transcend the things that have kept us anchored in fear. Reminiscent of Paulo Coelho's works, REBIRTH is a teaching-tale about love, forgiveness, and facing our fears.
