Embark upon your own path to power and inner-peace with these 52 beautiful and inspirational mandalas. Mandalas are symbols of the cosmos and, as expert Cassandra Lorius explains, they are also a map towards a spiritual heart. The circle itself represents the entire universe but the center of the mandala is often where the focus of the image lies. In Mandalas and Meditations, Cassandra will help you find a mandala to suit your day and will help you to meditate upon the topic or meaning at the center of your mandala. She will guide you in finding inner peace and power. Beginning with an introduction that will take you through the origins of the mandala, Mandalas and Meditations will show you how to meditate with mandalas; what methods of contemplation to use; and how to make your own personalized mandala. This handy compendium also contains 52 gorgeously illustrated mandalas that will suit every thought, emotion, and ambition that may require reflection.

THE NEW MANDALA, Eastern Wisdom for Western Living, written in collaboration with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, is a journey toward spiritual awakening and rediscovery. On one level it is an engaging and entertaining journal of a Christian clergymanâ€™s quest for enlightenment. On another level it is a road map for the readerâ€™s own spiritual journey. It is an invitation to the readers to explore the wisdom and practice of Buddhism, while at the same time illuminating and reclaiming the inherited faith of their formation. Rev. John Lundin, a Protestant minister, enters into the world of Tibetan Buddhism in search of a new spirituality. The quest takes him - and the reader - on a journey to Dharamsala in north India, the home of His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet. In private dialogues with His Holiness, the author discovers the empowering affinity between Buddhism and Christianity, and weaves the personal experiences of his own pilgrimage with the wisdom and teaching of the Dalai Lama.
Meditation is a “practice,” a way of practicing new ways of thinking and
responding which we can use in our everyday living. I like to think of meditation in
the same manner that a musician thinks of practicing the scales on the piano.

"This is a powerful, richly nuanced, evocative work; a stunning and brilliantly innovative pedagogical intervention. It provides ground zero-the starting place for the next generation of theorists who study the self, narrative theory, and the place of games and sport in everyday life. A stunning accomplishment by one of America's major social theorists." Norman K. Denzin, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Games of many kinds have been played in all cultures throughout human history. This wide-ranging book explores the social and psychological processes involved in the playing of games. One player (or team) seeks to outwit another by undertaking various physical and communicative moves-not unlike conversations. Games have well-formed "narrative" structures, analogous to myths, that are enacted by each participant to give play to his/her self and its attendant emotions. These plays of the self enable each agent to seek adventures and heroic moments. Going beyond the mythmaking and catharsis that may be achieved by individuals, the author shows how games have been devised and played in particular societies and eras as means of promoting specific ideologies of a society, even social ideals such as utopias.

★Are you looking for a way to disconnect from everyday life?★ ★Are you looking for a way to relax and meditate ?★ ★Do you want to start approaching Buddhist or Zen discipline?★ ★Do you want to help a loved one to relieve everyday thoughts?★ Turn off ALL YOUR DEVICES, take a break from everyday thoughts, free your mind and start meditating by applying the ZEN philosophy and its benefits, simply by coloring! A book suitable for everyone With 100 Mandala images ready to color! Mandala in Sanskrit means "center, circle, magic ring". The term was originally (around 1500 BC) associated with celestial elements such as the Sun and the Moon. Only later on it was compared to the drawings that we know today. Mandalas originated in India, but quickly spread throughout the Asian continent and later in the West (mainly thanks to the psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung). The practice of coloring a mandala allows your mind to take a break from everyday thoughts, anxieties and worries. This activity gives you peace and quiet, but not only: it also puts the creative part of your brain, which you often neglect in everyday life, into operation. Coloring a mandala will allow you to give voice to the right hemisphere, to release the ideas that we often let go during our hectic days. You will feel your baby ego come out and have fun like it used to, free from stress and anxiety. Coloring the mandala will allow you to reach the state of "daydreams" in which you will feel far from the thoughts that stress you, free from the space-time dimension. In this phase you will come into contact with yourself and immerse yourself in a process of introspection. In this moment "alpha" new ideas will be born, your mind will be more predisposed to memorization and you will find the motivation to face the challenges of life. How to color a mandala and relax: There are no rules for coloring a mandala. There are no right or wrong behaviors to color, in fact that what you are doing will be unique and will have to reflect yourself, with your favorite tastes and color combinations. You can take your time to color your mandala whenever you want, ideally an hour or so in the evening to relieve the stress accumulated during the day. Don't wait! Click and find your Inner Peace!
