How can we connect the spiritual realizations of Buddhism with the psychological insights of the West? In Toward a Psychology of Awakening John Welwood addresses this question with comprehensiveness and depth. Along the way he shows how meditative awareness can help us develop more dynamic and vital relationships and how psychotherapy can help us embody spiritual realization more fully in everyday life. Welwood's psychology of awakening brings together the three major dimensions of human experience: personal, interpersonal, and suprapersonal, in one overall framework of understanding and practice.

In attempting to more effectively communicate the principles of spiritual life to those who sincerely desire a deeper reality in their walk with Christ, I have discovered that most people appreciate practical and straightforward instructions, and this is especially true when it involves the mystical nature of spiritual life. Although spiritual life is not meritoriously attained through natural means or human effort, there are several "Practical Steps" that can be taken to help facilitate the practice of spiritual disciplines. The combination of these "Practical Steps" with the spiritual disciplines themselves will work to promote a dynamic life of faith that will effectively bring the believer into a productive and rewarding relationship with God. "Man is an intentional creation of divine wisdom explicitly designed to fulfill a sacred purpose" "Agape love requires a soul to empty the wealth of its humanity upon the altar of God as a willing sacrifice" "If determination is to live up to its potential in promoting the spiritual life ..., it must be united with some very fundamental practical steps" "Heaven should not be a "culture shock" to the consciousness of the believer; it should be a gradual final step into the glorious reality of a spiritual life whose progress began at conversion" "Divine pleasure must be the goal of human effort, not divine favor" "The genuineness of what we actually believe is nowhere so obviously exposed as in our daily schedules" "It does not take overtly carnal acts to corrupt the days of a man's life, for inattention and idleness produce the same result as evil actions or wicked intentions" "Liberty must always precede service if either are to be authentic" "It is our great love for the Father, not our initial desire for salvation, that motivates and liberates the sincere believer to live a life of chosen obedience to God"

Build Optimal Energy and Health in Body, Mind, and Spirit Ever wondered why you’re feeling out of balance, stressed-out, sick, and exhausted but still can’t sleep? Western medicine often ignores the underlying issues that can lead to fatigue, illness, and disease, but there is a way to revitalize your body and mind without drugs or dangerous side effects. Ayurveda, the “science of life,” is a complete wellness system that includes all that we associate with medical care — prevention of disease, observation, diagnosis, and treatment — as well as self-care practices that are generally absent from Western medicine. This truly holistic approach considers not just diet, exercise, and genetics but also relationships, life purpose, finances, environment, and past experiences. In this thorough and practical book, Michelle Fondin guides you gently through self-assessment questions designed to zero in on your needs and the best practices for addressing them, such as eating plans, addiction treatment, detoxification, and techniques for improving relationships. She outlines easy steps you can take, with minimal cost, to heal common ailments such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, excess weight, anxiety, and depression. These time-tested methods for body, mind, and spirit wellness offer benefits to anyone at any age.
