The ancient fire philosophers taught the secret of the Flame Divine and knew the meaning of the Spark of Life. After fifty years of diligent research, Prof. Hotema has dug from ancient ruins some fragments of ancient scriptures dealing with a marvellous secret of the Macrocosm, and tells the story in his remarkable work The Breath of Life and the Flame Divine. He shows why Chiropractic is the greatest system known for treatment of the sick. It lies in the fact that Chiropractic unconsciously deals with the Fire of Life, and has some knowledge as to why the body functions. And yet, it knows not the true nature of the animative power nor the seat of its source. Professor Hotema shows that the secret was solved by the Ancient Astrologers and lies buried now beneath the ruins of their temples, libraries and cities. Such of their valuable scriptures as were salvaged are concealed in caves in India and are guarded by armed men.

A unique approach to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, a whole-body healing therapy focused on working with the forces underlying health and healing Cherionna Menzam-Sills draws on her extensive background in pre- and perinatal psychology, embryology, bodywork, Continuum Movement, and other somatic therapies—as well as years of working with her husband, Biodynamics pioneer Franklyn Sills—to present this accessible introduction to the meditative healing practice of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST). This book offers a personal journey of embodied inquiry into each element of biodynamic session work, using meditative explorations, personal descriptions, and illustrations to convey the essence of Biodynamics. It emphasizes breathing and body awareness exercises that help the practitioner become more attuned to her own body so that she can create an effective relational field with her client. An essential guide for new practitioners, students, and clients—as well as a valuable reference for experienced practitioners—this book illuminates the path toward the intelligent formative forces of the mysterious presence called "the breath of life" and its transformative power for health and wholeness.
This work, combining two of the author's best-selling books in Japanese, introduces the Western reader to the unique breathing techniques developed by a charismatic teacher to activate the latent energy of ki, the "basic life energy" that lies untapped in most of us. Guiding you step-by-step, Nishino teaches you simply and clearly how to "breathe through the soles of your feet" - inducing a shift in consciousness that will invigorate your entire body. Regular practice brings multiple beneficial effects, including enhanced health, stamina, resourcefulness, and youthfulness. Best of all, the results are faster and more dramatic than with other traditional meditative breathing exercises.
In this book, Ron DelBene introduces a concept of prayer that will help persons new to prayer as well as veterans of the life of prayer. The Breath Prayer is a short prayer of praise and petition that is meant to help us become aware of the presence of God. It is a way to have on our lips what is always in our heart, DelBene explains. The author leads the leader to discover his or her own personal and individualized breath prayer, a prayer that may be prayed at any time of the day or night. He gives historical examples of the breath prayer used in ancient writings as well as modern-day examples of how persons have utilized and been helped by this way of praying Other titles in the The Breath of Life Series are The Hunger of the Heart: A Call to Spiritual Growth and Alone with God: A Guide for Personal Retreats, both written by Ron DelBene with Mary and Herb Montgomery.
'Life being what it is, one dreams of revenge.' Gauguin's aphorism serves as the motto for this morality tale of two women, both in their sixties, whose lives are interwoven in ways neither of them yet understand. Madeline Palmer is a retired curator, living alone on the Isle of Wight. One day to her door comes Angela Beale, a woman she has met only once, who is now enjoying sudden success, late in life, as a popular novelist. The progress of a single night comes fascinatingly to echo the hidden course of their lives.
