Discusses the Buddhist meaning of true love and how to attain it in the modern world.

• Interweaves Tantric Buddhist teachings with modern concerns such as monogamy and contraception.

• Gives a holistic view of a healthy relationship, from physical pleasure to emotional connections and spiritual transformation.

• Discusses love in the broader Buddhist concepts of karma and reincarnation.

Beginning his book with the ringing question "what are you waiting for?" Robert Sachs goes on to interweave traditional Buddhist thought with the concerns of the modern couple. Using clear, playful language, Sachs describes the different aspects of healthy relationships within a Buddhist context. However, rather than just setting an ideal, he clarifies how Buddhist practices not only can be integrated into a modern lifestyle but also can be powerful tools for the many changes that occur in any loving relationship.

Sachs also considers the role of each individual in a relationship, showing that a couple may develop or possess qualities of being an indivisible unit, but that where the real work lies is when two people are committed to grow and change with one another. He offers techniques for finding oneself both in and out of a relationship and ideas on how to deal with anger and other emotions that arise in the course of life, emotions that occur most intensely over the course of an intimate relationship. The Passionate Buddha acts as a guide for all of those "fumbling toward ecstasy" in today's confusing world of relationships.
Discover the four levels of traditional Tibetan healing science with this preventive health care manual for people of any age, culture, and physical type.

• Includes material on little-known therapies such as Pancha Karma and Kum Nye, as well as guidelines for nutrition, longevity, detoxification, and meditation.

• Author has studied with many of the best-known Tibetan and Ayurvedic physicians alive today.

Tibetan medicine was probably the first truly integrated system of ancient healing science. From the seventh to the tenth centuries, Tibetan kings encouraged physicians from India, China, Nepal, Persia, and Greece to teach their traditional medical sciences to Tibetan physicians, who at that time were primarily influenced by Ayurveda and shamanic healing modalities. This cross-cultural marriage of the greatest healing traditions makes Tibetan medicine ideally adaptable to Western health needs.

Tibetan Ayurveda provides a comprehensive guide to the four levels of traditional Tibetan medicine with a wealth of traditional health practices and teachings. Much of the contemporary material on Tibetan medicine focuses solely on herbal medicine and acupuncture; Tibetan Ayurveda goes beyond these to look at other important forms of treatment such as Pancha Karma for detoxification and rejuvenation and Kum Nye for integrating mind and body. A self-profile test is included to allow readers to determine their own health needs and embark on the path toward realizing their full potential for health and well-being.
An Ounce of Hydrogen Peroxide is Worth a Pound of Cure

Hydrogen peroxide is trusted by every hospital and emergency room in the country for its remarkable ability to kill deadly germs like E. coli and the swine flu virus. In fact, it has attracted so much interest from doctors that over 6000 articles about it have appeared in scientific publications around the world.
Research has discovered that hydrogen peroxide enables your immune system to function properly and fight infection and disease. Doctors have found it can shrink tumors and treat allergies, Alzheimer’s, asthma, clogged arteries, diabetes, digestive problems and migraine headaches.
Smart consumers nationwide are also discovering there are hundreds of health cures and home remedy uses for hydrogen peroxide. A new book called The Magic of Hydrogen Peroxide is now available that tells you exactly how to use hydrogen peroxide by itself... and mixed with simple everyday kitchen items... to make liniments, rubs, lotions, soaks and tonics that treat a wide variety of ailments.
It contains tested and proven health cures that do everything from relieving chronic pain to making age spots go away. You’ll be amazed to see how a little hydrogen peroxide mixed with a pinch of this or that from your cupboard can:
•    Relieve the pain of arthritis, rheumatism and fibromyalgia
•    Treat athlete’s foot
•    Clear up allergies and sinus problems
•    Soothe sore throats
•    Fight colds and flu
•    Help heal boils and skin infections

Besides killing E. coli and the swine flu virus, hydrogen peroxide also destroys botulism, salmonella and other harmful organisms. It works by making viruses and bacteria self-destruct on the cellular level. Amazingly, for something so powerful, hydrogen peroxide is safe. That’s because after it makes germs self-destruct, hydrogen peroxide breaks down into harmless water.

We live in a melting pot world where competing worldviews and paradigms contribute to, but are also the victim of collapsing social and political infrastructures. Add to this undeniable climate change and the result is global turbulence manifesting as environmental degradation, wars, terrorism, growing fundamentalisms, pandemics, and increasing levels of despair and anxiety. Yet, there is also emerging what could best be described as a growing tribe of conscious, engaged individuals united in recognition of the interdependency of all sentient life and a vision of sustainability rooted in eco-sensitivity. These people, whether they are consciously united or not, are the foundation of and beacons for an ecology of oneness. Their vision and call may not cause a massive transformation of the whole of humanity. But, in troubled times, individuals and groups who hold such a vision act as pockets of light, promoting mindfulness, supporting the development of our inherent moral compass, and remind us to engage and cooperate with worlds both visible and invisible in which we are cohabitants. An ecology of oneness beckons a spiritual transformation of global magnitude. Although author Robert Sachs practices Tibetan Buddhism, his studies under and times spent with renowned masters from all faiths and traditions makes The Ecology of Oneness a life guide for all. He empowers us to be a light, support, and friend to every being we come into contact with. If we embrace and embody such a vision, we awaken in a free world beyond religious, racial, or social differences and experience the oneness that is at once the truth and our salvation.
Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Sport - Sportpsychologie, Note: 1, Deutsche Sporthochschule Köln (Institut für Prävention und Rehabilitation), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: EINLEITUNG Menschliche Bewegung ist ohne die Beteiligung hintergründig ablaufender psychischer und gefühlsmäßiger Prozesse nicht denkbar. Wahrnehmung und Bewegung werden von ZIMMER (1989, 95) als unmittelbar miteinander verbunden betrachtet und motorische Aktivitäten und Sinneseindrücke als funktionelle Einheit verstanden. Die Psyche, in der griechischen Mythologie eine Gestalt von vollendeter Schönheit, ist untrennbar mit der Gesamtheit aller Bewegungen, der Motorik verknüpft. Wenn das Leben des Menschen nur als Bewegung und in Bewegung möglich ist, dann entspricht die Qualität des Lebens der Qualität der Bewegung. Die Lebensbedingungen der westlichen Industriegesellschaft mit ihrem zunehmenden Medienkonsum und ihrer fortschreitenden Urbanisierung schränken die Lern- und Bewegungsmöglichkeiten von Erwachsenen und Kindern so stark ein, daß ein immer größeres Bedürfnis nach psychomotorischer Förderung und Erziehung entsteht. Daß Bewegungen vom Zeitpunkt der Zeugung an ein wesentliches Merkmal menschlicher Existenz sind und maßgeblich zur Ausgestaltung des Organismus beitragen, verdeutlicht die Darstellung humanembryologischer Erkenntnisse nach BLECHSCHMIDT (1989). Die Erkenntnisse der pränatalen Psychologie sensibilisieren für die Auswirkungen der verschiedenen Umwelteinflüsse, die bereits im Mutterleib auf die Psyche des Kindes einwirken. Die Untersuchungen von Daniel STERN (2000) und Martin DORNES (1999 & 2001) zur Entwicklung des Selbstempfindens in frühester Kindheit als Grundlage des subjektiven Erlebens, der Selbstreflexion und der sozialen Interaktion, führen zu einer gänzlich anderen Betrachtung des neugeborenen Kindes. Ihre Erkenntnisse zur Entwicklung und Entstehung des Selbstkonzepts - der Selbstwahrnehmung und der Selbstwirksamkeit - tragen zu einem neuen Verständnis der Fähigkeiten von Ungeborenen und Säuglingen bei. Das primäre subjektive Empfinden des Körperselbst, das auch die Gestaltung aller sozialen Kontakte maßgeblich beeinflußt, bleibt für den Menschen während seiner gesamten Lebensspanne relevant. Das Selbstkonzept, als lebenslang überdauerndes Bild des Menschen von sich selbst, ist nach STERN (2000) daher ebenfalls in hohem Maße Resultat von Bewegungen in Gestalt der Körpererfahrungen. [...]
Dieser Sammelband ist aus einer Ringvorlesung hervorgegangen, die unter dem gleichen Titel im Wintersemester 2007/08 am Institut für Kulturwissenschaften der Universität Leipzig stattfand. Da diese Vorlesungsreihe sowohl aus einem bes- deren Anlass ins Leben gerufen als auch in einer besonderen Form verwirklicht wurde, sollen nun einige Worte dazu am Anfang dieses Buches stehen. Die Vorlesungsreihe entstand anlässlich einer einschneidenden Kürzungsm- nahme der Universität Leipzig: Im Wintersemester 2007/08 war die Stelle für Äst- tik am Institut für Kulturwissenschaften in Leipzig mit der Pensionierung von Prof. Dr. Uta Kösser endgültig gestrichen worden. Und dies ohne jede inhaltliche - gründung. Ausschließlich pragmatische Hochschulpolitik war es, die hier von nun an den Studierenden das Studium eines Teils ihrer gewählten Studienrichtung - möglich machte. Um dieses „Ende der Ästhetik“ in Leipzig nicht einfach unk- mentiert hinzunehmen und außerdem die Ästhetik und ihre Vielfalt noch ein letztes Mal in Leipzig zu präsentieren, wurde daraufhin von Studierenden der Plan gefasst, eine Ringvorlesung zu organisieren. Die Vorlesung sollte einerseits viele der m- lichen Perspektiven innerhalb der Ästhetik aufzeigen und damit den Studierenden nochmals sozusagen in geballter Form die Möglichkeit geben, sich in dieser Dis- plin zu orientieren und sich mit unterschiedlichen Positionen der Ästhetik ause- anderzusetzen. Andererseits sollte damit der große Verlust, den diese Streichung und Wegrationalisierung tatsächlich bedeutet, herausgestellt und kritisiert w- den.
