Well-being for Body, Mind and Spirit
by Charles Berner
Holistic Yoga: Well Being for Body, Mind and Spirit was created by Charles Berner for his yoga students. It is a balanced approach to personal growth. Yoga in its full form is a system that brings one's whole life into balance and harmony; health and well-being, relating and communication, money, family, sex life and even dying. It combines the wisdom and proven methods from both Eastern and Western sources. The book details a program in which you proceed systematically by working on four aspects of your life; Body, Senses, Action, and Mind. Within each of these categories are nine subjects. There are a total of 32 aspects of the self in the Holistic Yoga Mandala philosophy and program. It is based on universal principles discovered by ancient wise men and women. You are the Individual or Being in the middle. The thirty two aspects have to do with your relationship to Life. The Holistic Yoga Mandala is a process of bringing each of these aspects into harmony and balance.
In his book, Siddartha, Herman Hesse describes a good Enlightenment Intensive listening partner. As Siddartha was speaking to another he recognized that few knew how to really listen. Siddartha noticed that this man to whom he was speaking "let the words enter his mind, quiet, open, wating, how he did not lose a single one, awaited not a single one with impatience, did not add his praise or rebuke, was just listening. Siddhartha felt, what a happy fortune it is, to confess to such a listener, to bury in his heart his own life, his own search, his own suffering."
Be not attached to your relatives and friends, or your possessions. Fix your attention upon the state of clear thought. Leave the mind blank. Keep your attention on you.
