A Phenomenological Study of Kukai and Dogen
Author: David Edward Shaner
Publisher: SUNY Press
In a pioneering study, David Shaner uses the resources of phenomenology to penetrate Buddhist philosophy in terms of Kukai and Dogen. In addition to this original and rigorous methodology, his work offers insights into some fundamental difficulties intrinsic to comparative studies. The problem of the relation between body and mind is a prime example. Shaner's observations shed a brilliant light on these traditional antinomies as they may be resolved or, more accurately, dissolved when seen in their appropriate contexts. In addressing these issues, the study also contributes to the understanding of common features that underlie the various doctrines of Japanese Buddhism. This work will appeal to both East and West phenomenologists, philosophers interested in the mind-body problem, scholars of comparative philosophy, and students of Japanese philosophy and religion.

New Medicine for a New Earth: a Course for Healers
Author: Leah Boyd-Barrett
Your BodyMind Toolkit is a Basic Level Course for Healers. It is based on the principles of kinesiology muscle-testing, renamed Frequency Testing for the purpose of this book. The title reflects the fact that the basis of life is the quantum information within light, differentiated through multiple frequencies, some of which we share. Frequency-testing allows us to listen to the body using this common language of frequencies in order to customize the ideal remedy for its needs. The principles of muscle-testing are taught, applied, and developed while following a protocol to enable the healer to deal with environmental, nutritional, emotional and spiritual challenges, both for themselves and others. Topics covered include techniques for healing with whole foods and herbs, food sensitivities, Bach Flower remedies, EFT, regression, chakras, and hands-on healing, as well as fun experiments, useful charts and multiple resources.

Author: Michael Mayer, Ph.D.
Publisher: North Atlantic Books
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
Energy Psychology presents a comprehensive approach to healing that combines leading-edge Western bodymind psychological methods with a broad system of ancient, sacred traditions. Incorporating Dr. Mayer's integral approach called Bodymind Healing Psychotherapy, Energy Psychology draws on Chinese medicine approaches, including Qigong and acupressure self-touch; kabalistic processes; methods drawn from ancient traditions of meditation and postural initiation; and psycho-mythological storytelling techniques.Drawing on thirty years of training in Tai Chi and Qigong, Dr. Michael Mayer shows how integrating the essences of these traditions and methods can restore vitality and give the average person self-healing tools for physical and mental health. Unlike the quick-fix books on energy restoration, this book uses timetested, age-old practices from sacred traditions in combination with well-established clinical approaches. Dr. Mayer teaches readers bodymind healing methods to treat anxiety, chronic pain, addictions, hypertension, insomnia, trauma, and other prevalent conditions. Written in a clear, intelligible style, Energy Psychology includes real-life case studies that highlight the effectiveness of his techniques.
