Co-Ordinating Body, Mind and Spirit
By (author) Aaron Hoopes
Perfecting Ourselves by Aaron Hoopes
Book DescriptionCan we achieve perfection? While true perfection is fleeting, we often achieve a moment of perfection: a state of mind that is just right, a time when we are fully attuned to the needs of our body, mind and spirit. It is the potential for achieving this type of integration that this book seeks to tap into. The author explores the basic threads of the self -- body, mind and spirit -- and demonstrates simple methods of integrating the three through breathing exercises, meditation, focused quietism and conscious living. He considers the body and how we can become more fully aware of it by examining detrimental behaviours, exploring the effect they have and suggesting ways to counter them. In particular, he shows how deep breathing exercises and conscious awareness of the breath constitute a major pathway to physical health and well-being. He then looks the mind and how we can gain more control over our thoughts and feelings. In particular, he focuses on 'Quietism' an approach that includes exercises for calming the mind and gaining clarity of thought. Finally, he discusses the spirit, which manifests itself when we have integrated a healthy, connected body with a calm, clear mind. Develop healthy habits one step at a time; Holistically heal and strengthen your body; Reduce tension and stress through mindful breathing; Increase your connection between mind and body; Get in touch with your 'Universal Mind'; Discover the joys of quietism; Achieve internal balance.
