There are many paths to the One. To walk the Eastern path is to embrace mystery-to accept that there are subtle realms of consciousness beyond the rational mind. Eastern spirituality for Modern Life helps you to explore the philosophical underpinnings of Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, and Tantra.It is not that one mystical tradition is ultimately the best; it is that there are many nuggets of truth that can be gained by exploring each tradition. Our shrinking world requires us to step outside of our separatist ways and seek to better understand each other. You needn’t reject your own beliefs to explore Eastern teachings. You also needn’t take a religion in total to benefit from a particular insight that you might be able to incorporate into your spiritual practice.Eastern Spirituality for Modern Life offers specific practices, meditations, and techniques for implementing these ancient teachings in your life. You will learn techniques for gaining a peaceful mind, accessing the inspiration that comes from following spirit, and experiencing the depth of meaning that arises by listening to the needs of the soul.
