This book lays out a healing path using the power of dreams, theater, poetry, and shamanism. It shows how psychological realizations can cause true transformation when manifested by concrete poetic acts. The book also includes many examples of the surreal but successful actions Jodorowsky has prescribed to those seeking his help.
This radical book traces the entire journey of the Goddess through the beginning of history to the present day. It is unique in that it captures the politcal, sociological, psychological, but above all, the spiritual role of the Divine Mother, in relation with the Patriarchal God. A dense read but essential to stretch the mind of any Yogi or Yogini, and potentially life transforming.

In EASTERN BODY, WESTERN MIND, chakra authority Anodea Judith brought a fresh approach to the yoga-based Eastern chakra system, adapting it to the Western framework of Jungian psychology, somatic therapy, childhood developmental theory, and metaphysics. This groundbreaking work in transpersonal psychology has been revised and redesigned for a more accessible presentation. Arranged schematically, the book uses the inherent structure of the chakra system as a map upon which to chart our Western understanding of individual development. Each chapter focuses on a single chakra, starting with a description of its characteristics, then exploring its particular childhood developmental patterns, traumas and abuses, and how to heal and maintain balance. Illuminated with personal anecdotes and case studies, EASTERN BODY, WESTERN MIND seamlessly merges the East and West, science and philosophy, and psychology and spirituality into a compelling interpretation of the chakra system and its relevance for Westerners today.
