do you feel instantly attracted to some people yet repelled by others?
What causes the flashes of light some people see during ecstatic spiritual
experiences? How can sexual energy be used for healing? How are our moods,
sleep, and behavior affected by the phases of the moon? These questions
lead to the realization that we are beings of energy, moved by the energy
of others, our environment and the cosmos.
historic convergence is underway between teachings of the world's wisdom
traditions and the insights of modern science. Unseen forces -- previously
thought to be mere speculation, undetectable, or too weak to have any importance
-- are now known to have surprising effects in our daily lives.
Energy explains our energetic anatomy, the vital force that makes us alive,
the energetic dynamics of our relationships, the energies of the earth,
and remarkable discoveries in the influences of the sun, moon and planets.
Along the way, it explores simple yet powerful techniques for cultivating
and strengthening our vital energy; healing methods such as the laying-on-of-hands
and Therapeutic Touch; and the mysterious energetic phenomena of chanting,
prayer, meditation and tantric sexual practices.
adventure into the world of subtle energies will help you fully awaken
to your energetic nature -- and the vitality, harmony and pleasure that
are your birthright.
