Time travel is not just science fiction; it may actually be possible. Wolf draws on yoga and quantum physics to show that time is a flexible projection of mind. Cheating time, he says, is an ancient metaphysical idea from the Vedas having to do with moving through meditation to a place where time stands still.

The Ancient Yogis have always known about the immense powers that lie deep within all of us. How we think - our attitudes, outlook and mindset has a definite effect on what we are able to achieve in life. This view is exemplified in many of the most popular new age self-help and personal improvement strategies like: "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People," "How to Win Friends and Influence People," and "The Secret," just to name a few. In fact, at the heart of any strategy for positive personal transformation is one thing - changing the way you think. "The Yoga of Mind Control" presents a concise sketch of the yogic view of the mind, the nature of our thoughts and the critical role that they play in shaping our lives. More importantly, it outlines how to unlock that enormous mental potential for our own personal growth and success. It also illustrates how our thoughts can influence others and the world around us, and the powerful potential this personal force has for contributing to transformation on a global scale. Our thoughts and their influence in creating who we are, what we are able to achieve in life, and even the state of the world around us, remains an untapped and potent force within all of us. The ancient yogis discovered exactly how to unlock that enormous inherent potential. "The Yoga of Mind Control - Mind Power Secrets of the Ancient Yogis" is a much-needed unveiling of that knowledge.

Applying the teachings of this book will enliven your yoga practice and deepen your understanding of your Self.”- Gary Kraftsow, author of Yoga for Wellness and Yoga for Transformation Patanjali's Yoga Sutras is the key text of yoga. Yet for many yoga practitioners, its deeper treasures remain either unknown or mired in obscurity. Ranju Roy and David Charlton focus on 18 of the most important sutras and show how each one illuminates the relationship between the body, the breath, and the mind in a practical, clear, and contemporary manner. The sutras are carefully deconstructed, put into context and then developed into ideas for practice. The authors examine the interplay of three key terms: support, direction and space. They suggest that only by taking support on something can you establish a clear direction; and only then can a space open up to grow into. This formula can be applied as successfully to the body (in asana) as to the breath (in pranayama) and the mind (through meditation). With illustrated asana sequences and suggested practices, Embodying the Yoga Sutra is both a practical as well as a deeply philosophical book. Roy and Charlton give readers a whole new vocabulary with which to understand yoga as a living, vibrant and dynamic tradition.

The Yoga of Cleaning

You do not need to practice yoga to read this book and you need not be a germ-a-phoebe either. This essential guide will show you how to spiritualize your cleaning routine, take back your life and recreate your home as sacred space.

What is The Yoga of Cleaning? These are two activities that don’t usually go together. Or do they? Yoga means union or yoking of the mind, body and spirit. When these three aspects of us are brought to the task of cleaning (which is the art of purification) a greater expansion of well-being is created. When cleaning is combined with the technologies of yoga and its sister philosophies - ayurveda, meditation and vastu the result is the cultivation of sacred space within our homes and within our lives. You do not need to practice yoga to read this book and you need not be a germ-a-phoebe either. This essential guide will show you how to spiritualize your cleaning routine, take back your life and recreate your home as sacred space. Praise for The Yoga of Cleaning: In the yoga world, a popular meme is to take the practice off the mat and bring it into daily life. The Yoga of Cleaning does just that in full force and with playful intention. This very fascinating book poses the surprising interplay between yogic principles, yogic philosophy and the processes of cleaning. The Yoga of Cleaning is not just an esoteric overview that attempts to stimulate a deeper awareness and sense of spirituality to cleaning. Nor is it simply a “how to” cleaning manual. Instead, Jennifer has produced a work that merges the two in an engaging fashion, introducing the reader to methods that inspire otherwise mundane household and personal chores to something of a higher purpose. She reminds us that all actions have meaning and impact on our lives. She supports the process with holistic, efficient and streamlined strategies for care of the self and its surroundings.

A landmark new translation and edition Written almost two millennia ago, Patañjali's work focuses on how to attain the direct experience and realization of the purusa: the innermost individual self, or soul. As the classical treatise on the Hindu understanding of mind and consciousness and on the technique of meditation, it has exerted immense influence over the religious practices of Hinduism in India and, more recently, in the West. Edwin F. Bryant's translation is clear, direct, and exact. Each sutra is presented as Sanskrit text, transliteration, and precise English translation, and is followed by Bryant's authoritative commentary, which is grounded in the classical understanding of yoga and conveys the meaning and depth of the sutras in a user-friendly manner for a Western readership without compromising scholarly rigor or traditional authenticity. In addition, Bryant presents insights drawn from the primary traditional commentaries on the sutras written over the last millennium and a half.

In just 196 short aphorisms, this classic work of Indian philosophy spells out succinctly how the mind works, and how it is possible to use the mind to attain liberation. Compiled in the second or third century CE, the Yoga-Sutra is a road map of human consciousness—and a particularly helpful guide to the mind states one encounters in meditation, yoga, and other spiritual practices. It expresses the truths of the human condition with great eloquence: how we know what we know, why we suffer, and how we can discover the way out of suffering. Chip Hartranft's fresh translation and extensive, lucid commentary bring the text beautifully to life. He also provides useful auxiliary materials, including an afterword on the legacy of the Yoga-Sutra and its relevance for us today.
