Erling Kagge reveals new ways to view home and homo sapiens, and, as he travels leisurely, we grow slowly wiser' Tristan Gooley 'Part rumination, part walking coach and companion . . . and one that might just do more for your health and happiness than your treadmill alone ever could' New York Journal of Books 'A thoughtful book-length essay on a taken-for-granted human activity' Kirkus '[Walking is] much more subtle than a typical self-help . . . Erling Kagge uses his acquaintance with extreme environments to reflect on the mental and physical benefits of walking' Economist

In addition to herbalism and acupuncture, Chinese Medicine has a rich tradition of using stones as medicine, passed from generation to generation for thousands of years. In this comprehensive guide and extensive Materia Medica, Leslie J. Franks presents the Stone Medicine teachings of Dr. Jeffrey C. Yuen, an 88th generation Taoist priest from the ancient lineage of the Jade Purity School, which dates to the Han dynasty, 206 BCE. Detailing the therapeutic properties of 200 gems, stones, minerals, and crystals, Franks explains the physical, emotional, and spiritual conditions each stone can treat and how their color, form, hardness, and energetic qualities affect us according to Chinese Medicine. She examines the chemistry and sacred geometry of crystal structure, revealing how the minerals contained in the stones affect our physiology by supporting our Jing (Essence); by nourishing Qi (energy), blood, and fluids; and by clearing Wind, Cold, Damp, and Heat conditions that can lead to disease. Including a thorough primer on Traditional Chinese Medicine and backed by modern scientific research, this book explains how stones access our deepest layers, vibrating ever so slowly, to initiate deep lasting change.

Heal yourself from the inside out Our immune systems can no longer be taken for granted. Current trends in public healthcare are disturbing: our increased air travel allows newly mutated bacteria and viruses to spread across the globe, antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria outstrip the new drugs that are meant to fight them, deaths due to hospital-acquired infections are increasing, and the childhood vaccinations of our aging population are losing their effectiveness. Now more than ever, our well-being is at a dangerous crossroad. But there is hope, and the solution lies within ourselves. The Healing Self is the new breakthrough book in self-care by bestselling author and leader in integrative medicine Deepak Chopra and Harvard neuroscientist Rudolph E Tanzi. They argue that the brain possesses its own lymphatic system, meaning it is also tied into the body's general immune system. Based on this brand new discovery, they offer new ways of increasing the body's immune system by stimulating the brain and our genes, and through this they help us fight off illness and disease. Combined with new facts about the gut microbiome and lifestyle changes, diet and stress reduction, there is no doubt that this ground-breaking work will have an important effect on your immune system.

A full-color, practical handbook on the bioenergetics of animal healing, with case studies to showcase the effects of vibrational medicine * 2020 Coalition of Visionary Resources Gold Award and Industry Choice and Peoples Choice Award * Reveals how to work with the energy fields, auras, and chakras of horses, cats, and dogs * Demonstrates how to use High Sense Perception (HSP) in relation to an animal, illustrating what happens in the energy fields of a human being and an animal when they connect telepathically * Details how zoopharmacognosy, or animal self-selection of remedies such as essential oils, can assist in promoting emotional release and physical healing Vibrational medicine offers a natural, effective, and hands-on response to animal ailments and disturbances. In the absence of a shared language of "words," energetic healing can connect a human more closely to an animal while at the same time working on the physical body, the chakras, and the different layers of the animal's aura or energy field. In this book, animal communicator and healer Diane Budd shares her intriguing journey, research, and experience of working with animals energetically. She explains how, together with a healer colleague, she set out to document the effects of animal communication and healing on the energy field of the animal and the communicator, which led to further in-depth research. Detailing her findings, she reveals how to work with the energy fields, auras, and chakras of horses, cats, and dogs as well as what benefits energetic healing work can offer to animals. Sharing many case studies from her healing practice, the author explores what High Sense Perception (HSP) reveals about the relationship between an animal and human and how to make sense of what you are receiving on an intuitive level. Full-color illustrations clearly show the energy field, the energy flow between animals' chakras, and what happens in the energy fields of a human being and an animal when they connect telepathically. The illustrations also help guide you, step-by-step, through the use of the healing tools and practices described. The author explains how zoopharmacognosy--animal self-selection of remedies such as essential oils or herbs--can support emotional release and physical healing, not only for animals but for humans too. She details animal personality types and their soul evolvement levels and explores the influence of an animal's past life on present-day issues, whether it be a past-life connection with the current owner or an issue the animal needs to work with in this present lifetime. Full of animal communication stories and ground-breaking research on animal energy fields, this book shows how, just as we humans are all here on this earthly plane to learn and grow, so are our animals.

A comprehensive guide to the therapeutic benefits of light and color and how they affect our physical and psychological well-being Beginning with sun worship in prehistory and sunshine therapies in ancient Egypt, Greece, and India, light has long been associated with the sublime, the divine, and healing. Yet only recently have we begun to understand how different parts of the light spectrum, from infrared to ultraviolet, can affect our physical and psychological well-being. Covering the historic, scientific, and spiritual aspects of light and its role in energy medicine, Anadi Martel explores the vibrational nature of light and the interaction between light, biology, and consciousness. He demonstrates light's incredible effects on the physical, energetic, and cognitive dimensions of life and examines several forms of light therapy, including chromotherapy (color therapy), heliotherapy (sun therapy), actinotherapy (ultraviolet therapy), and thermotherapy (infrared therapy). He details how to use light therapy daily, get optimal benefits from sunlight, and avoid the health risks of new artificial lighting such as compact fluorescents and LEDs. Combining his own 30 years of research with practical insight from the many phototherapy pioneers he's encountered, the author examines scientific studies on how specific wavelengths of light influence our cells and DNA, brain function, sleep patterns, and emotional stability; speed the healing of wounds; and are effective in the treatment of disease, including arthritis, stroke, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and brain and nerve injuries. Exploring the spiritual aspects of light, the author explains why auras and halos have been used to represent sages and saints of all traditions, revealing the intimate link between light and consciousness.
