Understanding how our actions, words, and thoughts interact enhances our ability to progress in spiritual practice and brings us closer to self-realization. In a warm, informal style Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche opens up Tibetan meditation practice to both beginners and experienced students, placing as much emphasis on practice as on knowledge. Depending on the sources of the problems in our lives, he offers practices that work with the body, speech, or the mind—a collection of Tibetan yoga exercises, visualizations, sacred sound practices, and spacious meditations on the nature of mind. Together, he says, knowledge and regular meditation practice can alter our self-image and lead to a lighter, more joyful sense of being. The stillness of the body, the silence of speech, and the spacious awareness of mind are the true three doors to enlightenment.

Heart of Wisdom

Heart of Wisdom is based on an oral commentary to the Essence of Wisdom Sutra (the Heart Sutra), which was given by the author at Manjushri Mahayana buddhist Centre in England. The Heart Sutra, one of the best known and most popular of Mahayana Buddhist scriptures, contains the essence of Buddha`s teachings on emptiness and the methods to develop the wisdom that understands this ultimate reality. In this highly acclaimed explanation of the Sutra, Geshe Kelsang reveals its explicit and implicit meanings with both clarity and authority, and relates them to the five Mahayana paths that lead to full enlightenment. Seen in modern light, Buddha had been able to perceive, even see the vast spatial distances between atoms and between sub-atomic particles filled with electrons and even sub-eletrons in a state of high vibration. This atomic condition corresponds to a similar pattern in the brains of living beings and to interstellar and interplanetary gaps. The subject of emptiness as the author explains deals with perceptions leading to concept of formation and creation of a world of sense ideas which is merely a random arranging of material resources in an otherwise empty space filled with vibrations of these very particles. This is a rather difficult subject handled facilely by the author.

In 1999, Bronx-born plumber Tommy Rosa died after being the victim of a hit-and-run incident. Lying by the road, he felt a tug whisking him off into a tunnel of light. He found himself in a blessed place. He was shown that God created the Earth to nourish and heal mankind and that our sense of separation from each other and the divine is of our own making. He met his Divine Teacher and received a series of profound lessons - Eight Revelations about the nature of Heaven and Earth. Tommy returned to Earth with a heightened sense of connection to one and all. But the bliss of Heaven was quickly replaced by a long and painful recovery, and Tommy struggled to make sense of all that he had learned. Around the same time, Dr Stephen Sinatra, an integrative cardiologist, was revolutionizing his medical practice with a holistic approach to treatment. When a chance meeting brought the two men together, they gradually came to realize that the revelations of healing Tommy gleaned from his near-death experience aligned with the groundbreaking results Dr Sinatra was seeing in his own practice and scientific research. Health Revelations from Heaven and Earth brings divine wisdom together with the science of how we can live as God intended. Let this book lead you toward revitalized health, a newfound sense of purpose, and spiritual balance. Fully corroborated by Dr Sinatra's four decades of medical expertise, these divine lessons bring Heaven and Earth a little bit closer.

Jesus, Moses, Mohammed, Gandhi, and the Buddha all had brains built essentially like anyone else's, yet they were able to harness their thoughts and shape their patterns of thinking in ways that changed history. With new breakthroughs in modern neuroscience and the wisdom of thousands of years of contemplative practice, it is possible for us to shape our own thoughts in a similar way for greater happiness, love, compassion, and wisdom. Buddha's Brain joins the forces of modern neuroscience with ancient contemplative teachings to show readers how they can work toward greater emotional well-being, healthier relationships, more effective actions, and deepened religious and spiritual understanding. This book will explain how the core elements of both psychological well-being and religious or spiritual life-virtue, mindfulness, and wisdom--are based in the core functions of the brain: regulating, learning, and valuing. Readers will also learn practical ways to apply this information, as the book offers many exercises they can do to tap the unused potential of the brain and rewire it over time for greater peace and well-being.

Surviving Trauma School Earth

A Practical Guide to Emotional Survival on the Earth Plane

In his latest book, Surviving Trauma School Earth, Brent Baum shares specific techniques and discoveries that can assist us on our sojourn through “trauma school.” After a minimum of 1.9 million years of traumatic imprinting in our collective history, it is no wonder that our entry into the earth school comes with accompanying baggage. While many of us feel fortunate to have avoided the extremes of trauma, many of us fail to realize that we imprint trauma from observing the pain of those we love, from subconsciously responding to our “birth order” and the accompanying expectations, from pausing consciousness itself at moments of stress or overwhelm. We have discovered that the bodymind stores far more data and information than we dreamed possible. Through SPECT scans of the brain, we now understand that the bodymind cannot distinguish between the “original” event and the memory of the stored experience is still “fully charged.” And in the triggering of our unresolved memories, we, once again, activate our fight-flight-freeze response, causing our adrenals to rise and our T-Cells (Thymus cell) production (immune system) to decrease. In addition, scientists now believe that we move in and out of memory or “trance” fifteen to fifty times an hour. In an age where “mindfulness” is the key to health: we have discovered a “glitch.” The single greatest contributor to ageing, relational discord, compromise to our immune systems, inability to concentrate or achieve our goals, is the fact that we shift in and out of our old stress and trauma-based emotional states and physiologies fifteen to fifty times an hour. The stress on our physiology, as a result, is immense. In addition, the old models which sought to help us resolve these trance states fail to effectively address the subconscious mind where such imprints are stored. After working with over twenty thousand trauma survivors, Brent developed certain meditations, exercises, and emotional reframing approaches which employ “primary language” to speak to both the cells and meridians of the bodymind. In this work he shares discoveries involving the wisdom of the bodymind and its ability to spontaneously map the path to clearing subconscious blockages. In addition, our growing understanding of the mechanisms of trauma induction reveal the profound impact of trauma on all aspects of decision-making. Through a new “integrative consciousness model,” Brent reveals how all experiences have meaning and purpose when viewed from the “four” levels of willpower that have emerged from the study of trauma. These four levels of “intentionality” impact all of our decision-making and derive from spiritual, familial, cultural, and personal influences. Ultimately we discover that there is meaning and value in all of the experiences of the “earth school,” and that trauma forms the backdrop for our personal and collective awakening as a species. Its profound impact on the bodymind necessitates enhanced self-care and the routine “reframing” of our physical and emotional pain. Our increasing media exposure to overwhelming emotional and sensory experience demand that we learn to utilize the resources we have available to find and abide in that still, quiet place within where true safety is found. As we learn to clear these blockages, our innate potential, purpose, and gifts are revealed – offering the wisdom and guidance needed to navigate the challenging paths of the “earth school.” This work was written to reduce the tremendous loss of power and focus (intentionality) that comes with the fragmentation of consciousness and to allow our inner wisdom to emerge. Moving from a “survive” to “thrive” mentality is the focus of this work.
