As a yoga teacher, tutor and student with a growing interest and curiosity in what is within us, through the lens of yoga and spiritual practices, this book has given me plenty to take on board and continue to ponder long after turning the pages. Through the book I had some strong pause and wow moments, such as the conscious realisation reading the section on ‘Minds’ that we can’t physically feel inside our brain or the thoughts in the same way we can typically feel and sense other parts of our bodies. It includes interesting explanations for words we frequently use like ‘understanding’. The book is well presented and with suggested activities in different shaded boxes, throughout the chapters encouraging useful practices between teachers and their students. One of my favourite golden nuggets of wise words from this book is, “We may cultivate a calm atmosphere but calmness can only be found by each person.”
An essential for those who are interested in neuroscience, the body, consciousness and mindfulnes – An epic body of work, written by an expert teacher/practitioner, who articulates so eloquently and joyfully his depth and breadth of knowledge of the body/mind/consciousness relationship. John Stirk writes with lifetimes of insight and flare and his own illustrations and photographs, taken by his talented daughter Sarah Stirk, make this book an absolute must-have for anyone who works in transformation and the body. It seemlessly combines practical insight with current academic thinking within the fields of neuroscience, psychology, philosophy (both East and West) making this book a timeless classic.
Wow. A lifetime of authentic work beautifully distilled. This book is full of treasures – a wealth of genuine insights explored and explained.
John Stirk has long been a gifted teacher and has been inspiring yoga teachers and serious practitioners all over the world for many years. This book seems to be for people who have taken yoga (or similar practices) into their lives and sweeps beyond the merely mechanical into what lies way beneath. I found it thought-provoking and enjoyably readable. As a yoga teacher myself I will recommend it highly to both colleagues and serious students alike.
