A chakra in our breasts that emits spiritual nourishment into life… a secret substance in our bodies to heal the earth… a direct connection from our wombs to the creative center of the universe… In Body of Wisdom, Hilary Hart identifies nine hidden powers alive in women’s bodies and instincts, waiting to be used in contemporary challenges such as the creation of community, healing of the earth, and the restoration of life’s spiritual nature. Based on interviews with the world’s most visionary spiritual teachers and women's dreams and experiences, Body of Wisdom ushers in a new spirituality in which the body and the shared body of the earth are known as a seat of mystical power and women take responsibility for spiritual work that only they can do.

Includes a foreword by Judith Aston-Linderoth, creator and director of Aston Kinetics Praise: "While we have learned during the past few decades the importance of emotions and beliefs in health, the body has too often been neglected, or regarded as a mechanical object that sooner or later is doomed to fail. In A Guide to Body Wisdom, Ann Brode gives the body its due by showing how it can function as a source of wisdom and strength in total harmony with the mind. Brode's perspective is long overdue, offering a holistic, balanced view of what it means to be human."—Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind "This book includes a myriad of everyday ways to awaken and experience the body's innate intelligence. It is full of interesting facts, intriguing exercises, and useful strategies."—Risa Kaparo, PhD, somatic psychotherapist, creator of Somatic Learning, and author of Awakening Somatic Intelligence

Accumulations of life stresses—physical injuries, emotional and psychological stresses, birth traumas, and toxicity—can become imprinted in the tissues, acting like a videotape that is replayed whenever stimulated. Biodynamic craniosacral therapy aims to resolve the trapped forces that underlie and drive these trauma-based patterns of disease and suffering in body and mind. Wisdom in the Body teaches practitioners to develop the finely tuned skills of hands-on palpation and perception to sense the body’s subtle rhythms and patterns of inertia or congestion, with the goal of ending trauma and facilitating the expression of the breath of life. A comprehensive introduction to this practice, the book draws on the insights of pioneers like Drs. W. G. Sutherland and Franklyn Sills to explain the key principles about the body’s natural intention to heal and how this capability can be encouraged. A valuable resource for students, practitioners, and the lay reader, the book also includes a foreword by Dr. Franklyn Sills. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Sitting still in meditation may be the common image that comes to mind when one thinks of Buddhist practice—but just as important is cultivation of awareness through movement. The traditional Tibetan practice of yogic exercises known as lujong helps us connect with and explore the natural wisdom inherent in our living, breathing, feeling bodies. Lujong is an exercise that engages our whole being—body, mind, and subtle body—from the coarse aspects to the subtler and more profound. This book provides a thorough foundation for those new to the practice, and it helps people already engaged in any form of yogic exercise to deepen the potent fusion of meditation and physical movement. Included is an overview of the unique tradition of Buddhist yoga, along with instructions on how to work with the body and mind in seated meditation; tips for furthering our practice by working with adversities such as fear, procrastination, and anxiety; and guidance on bringing practice mind into daily life. The author also offers exercise instructions and a complete explanation of the movement practices, with photos to illustrate.

For Silvia Casabianca most of our remedies for discomfort and disease are at odds with the body's natural responses to various types of invasion or imbalance. In her view, much of what is labeled conventional medicine overlooks and often hampers the necessary and natural communication between organs and the flow of vital energy that maintains health. The first section of the book, "The New Perspectives," surveys holistic approaches to well-being. The second section, "The Body Wisdom," explores the various bodily systems and illustrates their functions and interrelationships. She elaborates the concept of an "inner healer," which is the key to physical and psychic well-being. Finally, in the third section, Casabianca, a Reiki Master, introduces readers to "Reiki and the Art of Healing," sharing with the reader her fascination for the multidimensional human body, and current knowledge about health and illness gained through being a physician, a psychotherapist and a Reiki teacher.
