This follow up to Dr Emoto's international bestseller The Hidden Messages in Water is the result of his latest scientific research into the healing properties of water. Building upon his previous work, which proved that water and water molecules are affected by our thoughts, words, and emotions, in The True Power of Water, Dr Emoto makes the case that water literally holds the key to good health and shows how we can interact with it with our thoughts, intentions, and prayer to reverse illness. Accompanied by numerous compelling photographs showing that water crystals are transformed according to the positive and negative thoughts they are exposed to, this book provides practical steps that anyone can use to improve their own well-being by learning how to consciously interact with water, the primary component of our bodies. Also discussed is Dr Emoto's research into the effects of prayer to purify rain water, helping to bring healing to the earth, as well as the mechanistic limitations of Western medicine and its understanding of both healing and disease. No one who reads Dr Emoto's works will ever take water for granted again.

Elizabeth Gowing is not a likely yogini. She is too fond of chocolate and To-do lists, and sometimes falls over on her mat. But yoga has taken her on journeys both inside and out and now she follows yoga around Britain - from the village hall where a quivering triangle pose was interrupted by the council recycling collection to a sound gong bath in the country's noisiest city, from Cornwall to Scotland. She discovers prisoners finding solace in child's pose; children finding expression in dancer pose, and dancers sitting bendily in cobbler's pose. Her feet start to hurt and she realizes that yoga is a current of shared experience that runs quietly through British society, through Middle England to the nation's extremes. In schools and hospitals, from Newcastle to Nottingham, Wales to West Kilbride, she untangles the Ashtanga from the Kundalini, the Sanskrit from the whimsical new-age, and finds the ways that yoga is rebuilding communities and lives - and her own wobbling body. Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, Gowing evokes the characters and communities she meets along a fascinating journey in a celebration of ancient wisdom solving modern-day problems and the exultation of finally mastering the Crow.

Yoga is for every body, including yours! For years, yoga books have asked readers to bend over backward (literally!) to conform to their physical demands. It's time for the opposite--for readers to demand that yoga conform to their individual needs. It's time for a yoga book to reflect the broader population that would benefit from a yoga practice geared toward them. It's time for Yoga for Everyone! This book offers yoga for every type of body: those who are big, small, elderly, pregnant, or of various physical abilities--everyone. No matter who you are or what you look like or what your abilities are, you can do all 50 poses in this book. The variations to classic poses in this book will also allow you to perform all 10 sequences, which combine different poses into one singular experience and focus on specific physical and mental benefits. So forget what you've heard. Yoga isn't just for the privileged few. It's meant to be enjoyed by everybody and every body. Yes, you can do yoga--and Yoga for Everyone will show you how! --------------------------------- "Dianne is a wonderful teacher with a voice and a message that's absolutely needed not only in the yoga community but also in the world. I'd go as far as to say that this book is the most important yoga book released this year. This book smashes the myth of the thin, able-bodied yogi and provides a safe introduction to the art of yoga in a way that's accessible to all. Yoga is for everyone!" -- Rachel Brathen, author of Yoga Girl "Dianne Bondy is truly a leader in the yoga world. Her unwavering commitment to accessibility and inclusiveness is demonstrated perfectly in her new book, Yoga for Everyone. This is a great book for yoga teachers and yoga students of all levels. If you're intimated by the conventional imagery of yoga, if you think yoga isn't for you, or if you're a teacher looking for tools to make the practice approachable for everyone, this book will be a valuable tool. Yoga is an ancient science of the soul, and Dianne's work aims to bring these universal teachings to different kinds of folks with the heart and wisdom that's a vital part of her contribution to the world." -- Kino MacGregor, yoga instructor "Dianne is a force, a personal inspiration, and someone who knows her power and uses it to uplift others. Western yoga and wellness spaces are severely lacking safety and inclusion. Oftentimes, walking into those spaces can feel more marginalizing than healing. Dianne's book is full of resources anybody can use--teacher or student--to create an accessible and welcoming space. The visual representation of diverse bodies and abilities provides a needed reminder that yoga in indeed for all of us. Thank you, Dianne!" -- Dana Falsetti, yoga instructor "Dianne Bondy continues to be a leading voice in the accessible yoga movement, and this book will serve as an excellent resource for anyone (and that's most of us) who doesn't resonate with or benefit from a standard one-size-fits-all approach to poses. Yoga for Everyone encapsulates the heart of Dianne's teachings, which is to make yoga fully adaptable to the experience of the practitioner. Whether beginners or long-time yoga students, readers will be able to choose a pose and find a route into it that suits their individual desires and needs. The models demonstrating the poses also represent a range of abilities, ages, and sizes, reflecting that yoga truly is for everyone." -- Todd Wolfenberg, CEO of Yoga International "Yoga for Everyone is a celebration and a triumph! It not only powerfully illustrates that every body is a yoga body, but it also illustrates the diversity and range of the practice itself through the adaptations and variations of yoga poses. Now everyone can access the benefits of a consistent yoga practice tailored to their individual needs and unique and beautiful body." -- Melanie Klein, editor of Yoga Rising: 30 Empowering Stories from Yoga Renegades for Every Body and co-editor of the ground-breaking collection Yoga and Body Image: 25 Personal Stories About Beauty, Bravery and Loving Your Body. "Dianne's approach is creative, customizable, and firmly rooted in compassion and inclusivity. Because Dianne presents several options for each pose--each one explained in a clear, digestible manner that demystifies the purpose behind the pose and addresses common frustrations--Yoga for Everyone will make a great matside companion for students of all levels." -- Kat Heagberg, editor in chief of Yoga International "Dianne Bondy is one of the most important figures in contemporary yoga, and her brilliance is reflected in this book. Her yoga is an exploration of potential and possibility--inclusive and accessible. She explores the diversity of abilities and experience, and she lifts us all up through her embrace of humanity." -- Jivana Heyman, founder of Accessible Yoga
What happens when a young child is traumatized? How does terror affect a child's mind-and how can that mind recover? Child psychiatrist Bruce Perry has treated children faced with unimaginable horror: homicide survivors, witnesses to their own parents' murders, children raised in closets and cages, the Branch Davidian children, and victims of extreme neglect and family violence. In The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, Dr. Perry tells their stories of trauma and transformation. He explains what happens to the brain when children are exposed to extreme stress and trauma and reveals his innovative (non-medicinal) methods for helping to ease their pain and allowing them to become healthy adults. In this deeply informed and moving book, Perry shares with the reader the lessons of courage, humanity and hope he learned from these scarred children. He dramatically demonstrates that only when we understand the science of the mind and the power of love and nurturing, can we hope to heal the spirit of even the most wounded child.
