In this volume, which includes a faithful reproduction of Dewanchand Varma's original book on Pranotherapy, the reader can trace one of the early developmental branches of modern manual therapy and learn something of the eccentric life of one its early pioneers in the West. Phil Young has drawn the threads of this development together with the inclusion of the previously unpublished notebooks of another such pioneer, Dr Randolph Stone, a contemporary of Varma who, like Stanley Lief the founder of modern European Neuromuscular Technique, was influenced by Varma's work. Stone was the founder of his own system of manual therapy, which he called Polarity Therapy, and although it is similar to Varma's work, it has maintained to this day more of the original vitalistic, energy approach.

Mindessence contains ideas and methods to deepen our understanding of life and death and bring us to a realisation of our true nature. To the author, the idea that some of us are somehow 'sane' and some 'insane, ' is false, he believes we are all absolutely sane - it is just a matter of degree. What Society calls 'mental illness' Tony Caves calls Perplexity. Transparency is the name he gives to a state of freedom from Perplexity. Transparency gives us space in which to experience Mindessence which is a state of dynamic ease and relaxed alertness beyond ordinary notions of sanity. The book explores the ways in which we are conditioned by society, through our upbringing and education, to live and die in a dream world of our own making. It then explores methods for de-conditioning ourselves through simple techniques, such as the use of static and moving Meditation, to help us become aware of our vast and timeless Heartmind and to plant the seeds of Transparency which then flower into Mindessence.

Polarity Therapy is a truly holistic health systemfounded by Dr. Randolph Stone, D.O., D.C., N.D.Dr. Stone believed that life was much more thanchemistry and that healing was greater than freedomfrom symptoms. He saw life as a spiritualjourney and healing as the total alignment withthat journey.Dr. Stone's understanding of the healing artsbegan with the study of Western medicine whichincluded structural manipulation, nutrition, andnatural therapies. He then journeyed throughoutEurope and the Far East studying different healingmodalities. In the Far East, he studied Ayurveda,(the traditional healing system of India), acupuncture,yoga, and meditation. In Europe, he studiedhomeopathy and Hermetic philosophy and visitedmany nature cure spas.Polarity Therapy is based on the premise thatwe are fields of pulsating life energy made up ofspecific frequencies known as the five elements:Ether, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Each elementrelates and flows in a balance of positive and negativeattractions arising from a neutral center. Whenour thoughts, emotions, and physical body are outof alignment with the energy necessary to meet alife challenge, an energy imbalance results. Theseimbalances may appear as physical, mental, andemotional discomfort or pain. Polarity teaches usthat this pain and discomfort is a signal for us tolearn, change, and realign our lives.An ongoing and dynamic balance of lifeenergy is our foundation for health and well-being.Polarity Therapy helps us to develop thisbalance by promoting the flexibility, spontaneity,creativity, and clarity necessary to meet the challengesof everyday life. Dr. Stone says, "Obstaclesare God's design to make man with a spine."We must have challenges to grow spiritually.Meeting these challenges is a life-long processin which we learn to increase the depth of ourunderstanding and awareness and apply this toevery moment of our lives.A Polarity practitioner utilizes the tools ofbodywork, exercise, nutrition, and verbal guidanceto evaluate and balance life energy. Polarity bodyworkinvolves gentle rocking, stretching, and pressure-sensitive touch based on energy flow. Polarityexercises are easy stretching postures combiningsound, breath, and self-massage. Polarity nutritionviews food as energy and develops an ongoing,ever-changing, and creative nutritional awarenessrather than a rigid set of rules. Polarity verbalguidance is based on the assumption that "rightthinking" is the cornerstone of good health. Verbalprocesses involve understanding and feeling ouremotions, taking responsibility for our lives, andcreating life-enhancing thoughts.
