Shein Luipa guides you through Buddhism from start to finish! Buddhism is a word that describes a set of teachings and practices everyone has heard of but that very few people understand. This is unfortunate because the teachings and practices of Buddhism are widely applicable and universally beneficial. Laid down by the Buddha and passed on through the ages, these are instructions for living, followed in various ways and all connecting back to a set of core ideas.In Buddhism: Beginner’s Guide to Understanding the Core Philosophy, author Shein Luipa takes you from beginning to end, starting on the assumption that what you know about Buddhism could fit onto the head of a pin and leaving you by the pages’ end with a strong grasp of what the teachings and practices are all about.This is a book that will change your life and reshape your worldview, initiating you on a singular and thrilling journey of self-discovery and release.

This overview of the essentials of Yoga is meant to both broaden and deepen the understanding of beginning students. It covers all the basic elements of this ancient discipline and philosophy of India-including Yoga poses, diet, breath control, meditation, mantras, Kundalini energy, and more. It also includes newly translated excerpts from the scriptures and pays special attention to branches of Yoga, such as Tantra, that are of great interest to Western students but are frequently misunderstood.
Discover why Buddhism is such an astonishingly lively and adaptable religion with this series. In just 12 accessible lectures, you´ll learn how Buddhism transformed the civilizations of India and much of Asia, and has now become a vital part of Western culture. Buddhism´s core philosophy, as you´ll learn, is that nothing is permanent - all is change. With this in mind, you´ll plunge into an introductory look at this faith. You´ll unpack the Buddhist idea that all of life is ´´suffering´´ and that there is no permanent self. You´ll learn about the life story of the Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, his teaching (Dharma), and his community of disciples (Samgha). You´ll also gain a clear understanding of key Buddhist terms such as nirvana, tantra, mandala, bodhisattva, and Zen; survey the lives of contemporary, well-known Buddhists such as the Dalai Lama; and examine Buddhist responses to some of the fundamental problems of life-responses that share some surprising similarities and differences with those of other faiths such as Christianity or Islam. These lectures are a chance for you to travel around the world and back in time, surveying Buddhism from its origin in India in the 6th or 5th centuries B.C.E. to the present day. It´s a 2,500-year history that will give you a fascinating window into how a faith can grow from a tiny religious community into a movement that spans the globe.

On the surface, this is a biography of an accomplished seeker who mastered the practices of yoga and brought a system for understanding the mysteries of body, mind, and spirit to students in the West. But, like the life of Swami Rama, this audiobook offers more than a sequence of astonishing events. As you read the stories of authentic guru-disciple relationships Swami Rama had both with his master and with his own students, you will see how the spiritual wisdom is transmitted through generations. This book also serves as a guide to advanced practices of yoga and tantra not commonly understood in modern times. The wisdom of these stories is beyond the power of words. As you read Pandit Tigunait´s account of life with his master, you will feel drops from the timeless stream of the Himalayan Tradition infusing your heart with wisdom and understanding. 1.

In the classic best seller, Introduction to Tantra, Lama Yeshe offered a profound and wonderfully clear glimpse into the sophisticated practices of Tibetan Buddhist tantra. This present book, the last major teachings of this great lama, opens up the world of advanced practices for Highest Yoga Tantra initiates in much the same way his earlier work opened up the world of tantra in general. Following Je Tsongkhapa´s (1357-1419 C.E.) text Having the Three Convictions, Lama Yeshe introduces the renowned Six Yogas of Naropa, focusing mainly on the first of these six, the practice of inner fire (tummo). Mastery of inner fire quickly brings the mind to its most refined and penetrating state - the experience of clear light, an extra-ordinarily powerful state of mind that is unequaled in its ability to directly realize ultimate reality. Lama Yeshe felt that 20th-century Westerners could easily grasp the often misunderstood ideas of this esoteric tradition: ´´We really need tantra these days because there is a tremendous explosion of delusion and distraction - and we need the atomic energy of inner fire to blast us out of our delusion.´´ Lama Yeshe´s aim was for his students to actually taste the experience of inner fire rather than merely gain an intellectual understanding. Lama´s own realization of the transformative power of these practices comes through, inspiring his students to discover for themselves their own capacity for inexhaustible bliss. 1.

Junge Frauen stehen mit ihrem Körpergefühl und sexuellem Erleben im Spannungsfeld individuell biografischer Erfahrungen und gesellschaftlicher Ideale. Sie besitzen in der heutigen Zeit ein ausgeprägtes Körperbewusstsein, doch statt körperlichen Wohlbefindens stehen oft kritische Selbstbewertung und Kontrolle im Vordergrund. Körperorientierte Methoden stärken über sinnlich-konkrete Selbsterfahrung die Körperwahrnehmung und erweitern sexuelle Fähigkeiten und Potenziale. Julia Sparmann verbindet erprobte Methoden aus Körperpsychotherapien, dem sexualtherapeutischen Ansatz Sexocorporel und Tantra zu einem Konzept körperorientierter Herangehensweisen für die Sexuelle Bildung. Ressourcenorientiert werden die Hintergründe der Ansätze reflektiert und im Sinne einer emanzipatorischen Sexuellen Bildung modifiziert. Es wird deutlich, dass die Vermittlung der komplexen Zusammenhänge zwischen Atem, Muskeltonus und Bewegung sowie die Betonung eines achtsamen Körperzugangs dabei eine große Bereicherung darstellen. Body-oriented Approaches to the Sexual Education of Young Women: An Interdisciplinary Introduction Young women´s body feelings and sexual feelings evolve in a tension between their individual biographical experiences and the ideals of society. While in the present time young women have a high body consciousness, they often prioritize critical self-assessment and control over their own physical well-being. Body-oriented methods help reinforce body awareness and extend sexual competences and potentials through sensually concrete self-awareness. Combining proven methods from body psychotherapy, the sex-therapeutic approach of ´´Sexocorporel´´, and tantra, this book presents a concept for body-oriented approaches to sexual education. Oriented to existing resources, it reflects on the philosophical backgrounds of the different approaches and modifies them in terms of an emancipatory sexual education, conveying an enriching understanding of the complex interrelationships between breathing, muscle tone and movement and emphasizing a mindful approach to the body.
