Rather than presenting an esoteric borrowing from Indian culture, Judith employs the metaphoric language of the chakra system within the context of modern psychology. Her clear organization and numerous charts make browsing for subjects of personal relevance a breeze, and her comparison of the various maps of psychological development (Freudian, Piagetian, Eriksonian, Reichian, and others) is intriguing. The book provides a useful tool for contemplating our strengths, weaknesses, and appropriate approaches to growth. -Yoga Journal". . . [S]parkles with insight. Spiritual seeker, client, and therapist alike will find treasures here."-PanGaia magazine
In Eastern Body, Western Mind, chakra authority Anodea Judith brought a fresh approach to the yoga-based Eastern chakra system, adapting it to the Western framework of Jungian psychology, somatic therapy, childhood developmental theory, and metaphysics. This groundbreaking work in transpersonal psychology has been revised and redesigned for a more accessible presentation. Each chapter focuses on a single chakra, starting with a description of its characteristics, then exploring its particular childhood developmental patterns, traumas and abuses, and how to heal and maintain balance.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Dafür deckt es alle Aspekte ab, die man sich vorstellen kann.
Eine wunderschöne Zusammenführung westlicher und östlicher Prinzipien.
Aber sicher keine "5 Minuten"-Anleitung, was natürlich auch nie funktionieren würde.
Grüße an alle zukünftigen 'Mitreisenden'
Die Autorin beschreibt fundiert die Verbindung von östlichem Wissen über Chakras und westlicher Psychologie. Jedes Chakra wird einzeln durchgegangen, jedes Thema der Chakren. Sie ordnet dieses Thema in einen kulturellen und psychologischen Kontext ein. Sie enthält sich weiterhin jedes esoterischen Blablas. Hier hat sich jemand mit einem Thema beschäftigt, es von allen Seiten beleuchtet, jeden Aspekt kennen gelernt und dann ein flüssiges, fundiertes, gut verständliches und sofort in die Praxis umsetzbares Buch geschrieben. Judith hat damit den Weg für ein der westlichen Diagnosesystem gleichrangiges Diagnosesystem, basierend auf den Chakren und ihren Themen geöffnet. Ein wirklich wunderbares Buch und leider nicht übersetzt. Könnte eine Motivation sein, Englisch so gut zu lernen, dass man Bücher wie dies lesen kann.

As I've learned from reading many of her books, she has long had a history of studying the chakra system. Through personal experience, she has adapted some of the esoteric systems with her own style, which are discussed more fully within her books.
This book in particular is an important one. In our culture, we all suffer abuses of some kind or another, even abuses we probably wouldn't consider abuse. Take noise pollution for example - it's a real assault on your senses, although we drown it out and let our body deal with the consequences.
But this book deals with the heavier stuff too - relationship issues, physical or sexual abuse, eating disorders, mental imbalances, whatever it may be, it's probably covered in this book. And what I have noticed is this author really knows what she's talking about - she provides insights I have not heard come from anyone else in my entire life.
I strongly encourage this book to everyone, regardless of who you are. This is a book for humanity.
Yes, this book deals with Eastern concepts of the body and would appeal to yogis and Eastern-minded people, but I think all others not in those categories would benefit as well. A large part of the book uses Western psychology to explain imbalance, so this isn't a difficult read at all. I couldn't put it down.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough, because it has already been an invaluable resource to me, and I can imagine it will be for years to come as I re-read and reflect, change and grow, and read again. It is nice to have her book Wheels of Life as well, to better understand the chakras, have access to more exercises, and expand your knowledge of the body.
Thank you so much, Anodea Judith, for such a brilliant, healing work of art.
Each chapter was incredible, with many 'a-ha' moments where the murky became clear and epiphanies of greater universal understanding abounded. This is a great book, but not exactly an easy read. I would place it at the Masters level of college texts, as it is packed with powerful citations backed by sound research.
It is a generally accepted fact that roughly 85% of Americans grow up in a dysfunctional family with experiences of abuse or neglect, which means that this book applies to 85% of you who are reading this post.
It is the sum of our life experiences that form who we are and the patterns we live by. If your patterns aren't working for you and you keep finding that you often make the same life mistakes that leave you unhappy, unfulfilled and starting over, it definitely warrants a deeper look into personal healing.
If you have anything in your life that you feel is giving you trouble and you feel stuck on, I highly suggest reading this book, but again it is not an easy read. Even with my advanced educational level and ability to comprehend complex subject matter, I found it to be a challenging read because is it not a passive activity. Once the words are read, the brain goes to work.
Eastern Body Western Mind is not just a book to read, it is a 'work book' for healing the soul's wounds accumulated over a life time; learning how to live in a healthier, more balanced and self loving way.
The content is so tightly packed and so powerfully written that I found I had to take a lot of time after reading each chapter to digest the information, considering how it might apply to my life experiences and traumas as I moved towards recovery. With each chapter, you work through deep wounds that surface and emotional healing work takes time.
However, it is well worth the time investment and much less expensive than years of weekly therapy that never seem to 'cure' you because if you are cured, the therapist looses a client. There is something powerful about yoga and Vedic philosophies. Once you release and let go of things in a healthy way, they don't return to haunt you, they are truly gone and you can proudly stand up to say, "I AM HEALED!".
This ONE BOOK, was more useful to me in helping to resolve my own internal issues than all the western psychology that has been offered to me combined in my life time. With this book, I was able to take my recovery into my own hands and heal in my own way.
The book took me more than 6 months to read because each chapter brought up so many issues I thought I had already processed and dealt with. I may have, but never so deeply and mindfully with a focus on healing myself as a whole; body, soul, mind and spirit.
After reading this book, I am now able to both ground myself and tap into universal connectivity and consciousness for limitless possibilities. I can pull that universal energy down through my chakras to manifest anything I can conceive of. I worked on the areas that needed attention with a new awareness. I know where I still need to keep working.
I also know that now it is time to get out into the world and start using my new knowledge to connect, to grow, to expand and to love again. #Love and the heart are where everything meets and more growth becomes possible.
I have made some massive changes in my life that I never thought possible 2 years ago, or even a year ago. Each day I become a better person. Each day I am more healed. It has been emotionally rough and all consuming at times, but I am glad that I put so much effort into seeking out my own way of healing and recovery.
In finishing the book, I feel like I have reached the top of a big mountain of s*** that I can now flush, like a toilet, back down into the earth beneath me, which acts as fertilizer for the trees and the earth that grounds me at a higher altitude of existence than I have ever experienced before.
I have leveled the playing field onto higher ground, raising myself up and learning in the process what it really means to "let go of what no longer serves you".
Because of Eastern Body Western Mind, I now understand myself differently, I understand others differently, I understand the world differently and I understand the universe differently. I have traversed through the depths of massive multiple traumas and grief, emerging from what seemed to be an endless tunnel of dark emotional pain, into a new light of being and a healthier way of living.
It is my greatest hope that others in the world read this book and find their own way of healing and transforming; moving from darkness into the light and sadness into the happiness of enlightened living in a purposeful way.

Anyone who comes from a western culture and has an interest in understanding what the chakra system is and how it is related to our lives at every stage needs to read this book. Judith does a superb job of merging the chakra systems with traditional western psychology concepts and the lifespan. She seamlessly combines and compares eastern and western concepts using charts, graphics, and detailed descriptions. The main thrust of the book is that we experience various life traumas at different stages, and they affect corresponding chakras, creating deficiencies or excesses in how we channel energy (cope). Most importantly she gives concrete strategies for healing each chakra and therefore, connecting to our highest spiritual purpose.
