Drawing on his extensive experience as a coach and world champion athlete, bestselling author Dan Millman reveals a path to success not only in sports but in any life endeavor that requires training and the integration of the body and mind — from golf and tennis to playing the piano. Body Mind Mastery is a revised and updated edition of Millman’s classic The Inner Athlete and includes a brand new Peaceful Warrior warmup, with photos and instructions on creating a daily exercise routine from Millman’s principles, as well as a new section on the aging athlete. Through personal experience, as well as anecdotes from teaching and coaching at such schools as Stanford, U.C. Berkeley, and Oberlin College, Millman directs the reader through the detailed process of attaining the optimum performance of body and mind, where “our minds are free of concern or anxiety, focused on the present moment; our bodies relaxed, sensitive, elastic, and aligned with gravity; our emotions free-flowing expression, uninhibited, spontaneous.” Body Mind Mastery includes overview chapters on developing mental, emotional, physical talent; practical chapters on training, competition, and the evolution of athletics; and Millman’s exploration of natural laws that govern mental and physical training. It is a seminal book that examines the psychology behind the search for athletic excellence, and shows anyone how to improve skills, accelerate learning, and unleash athletic potential. The skills it teaches are applicable in sports and daily life — transforming training into a path of personal growth and discovery.

“The gift of Eva Pierrakos’s Pathwork has been with me for twenty years. It is the deepest and most effective spiritual work I have found, and it has helped me realize my dreams. Each time I read it, I am amazed at the depth and breadth of wisdom and love it teaches. It is a practical way of truth that will change your life.”—Barbara Ann Brennan, author of Hands of Light

For more than twenty years, Eva Pierrakos was the channel for a spirit entity known only as the Guide. Combining rare psychological insight with an inspiring  ision of human possibility, the Guide's teachings, known as the Pathwork, have influenced many key New Age thinkers who have studied at Pathwork centers in the United States and abroad. Now, the core teachings of the guide have been collected in one volume synthesizing the essential wisdom of the Pathwork.

Under such headings as “The Idealized Self-Image,” “The Forces of Love, Eros, and Sex,” “Emotional Growth and Its Function,” “Real and False Needs,” and “The Spiritual Meaning of Crisis,” the Pathwork outlines the entire process of personal spiritual development. Unlike many over-idealized philosophies, the Pathwork confronts our devils as well as our anges, our all-too-human failings and petty ego concerns as well as our divine strengths. It shows us how to accept ourselves fully as we are now, and then ot move beyond the negativity, or “lower self,” that blocks our personal and spiritual evolution. It offers a practical, rational, and honest way to reach our deepest creative identity.

“I would advise that this book be read with a willingness to take time to digest what the Guide says. This is not ‘light’ reading, thought it is Light reading, I assure you. I find an enormous compatibility between these lectures and Emmanuel's teachings. What a wonderful gift to a wonderful world.”—Pat Rodegast, author of Emmanuel’s Book
YOU: A Spiritual Being on a Spiritual Journey: A New Paradigm for Living Life is a book about knowing yourself, not just as a Mind and a Body, but as an eternal spirit or Self, a vibration that is eternal. More importantly, this book is about being able to communicate with that eternal Self in a way that allows you to complete the journey you are here in this lifetime to fulfill. It teaches you how to Connect to the Self and how to use such connections to live a satisfying and fulfilling purpose-driven life. YOU: A Spiritual Being on a Spiritual Journey will give you the ability to find personal answers to live a better and more fulfilling life. By distinguishing between the Mind and the Self, this book provides specific tools that anyone can use to access their intuitive Self. It also includes stories of others who have experienced a true connection to Self and how that has helped them to evolve in a variety of areas including in their relationships, careers, finances, health, and more. Moving away from your current paradigm of the Mind to one that gives you a Connection to your Self, will feel as natural as breathing with Indira's techniques as your guide. And you will feel a level of peace you may never have thought possible.  “As I began connecting to the Self within, a clear communication arose that through these four simple steps of Connect, Listen, Trust, and Act, anyone can live a life from a place that honors the journey their Self is here to unfold.” –Indira Dyal-Dominguez, from the Introduction
One of the greatest spiritual leaders of the twentieth century encourages us to embrace the qualities of life our advancing years grant us in Maturity: The Responsibility of Being Oneself.

In a culture infatuated with youth and determined to avoid old age at all costs, this book dares to raise a question that has been all but forgotten in the age of Viagra and cosmetic surgery. What benefits might lie in accepting the aging process as natural, rather than trying to hold on to youth and its pleasures all the way to the grave?

Osho takes us back to the roots of what it means to grow up rather than just to grow old. Both in our relationships with others, and in the fulfillment of our own individual destinies, he reminds us of the pleasures that only true maturity can bring. He outlines the ten major growth cycles in human life, from the self-centered universe of the preschooler to the flowering of wisdom and compassion in old age.

Osho’s sly sense of humor runs like a red thread through the book, along with a profound compassion and understanding of how easy it is to be distracted from the deeper meaning and purpose of our lives—which is, ultimately, to flower into our own individual uniqueness and maturity with an attitude of celebration and joy.

Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.
