In this season of thanksgiving, it is worthwhile to take a moment not only to appreciate what we have but also to contemplate our personal development and well-being. Robert Sitler invites us to take a closer look at Mayan culture and the meaning of 2012 as a unique growth opportunity. Feng Shui Made Easy will help readers achieve inner and outer harmony in their lives. Bruce Frantzis teaches a simple form of qigong that will balance your chi and help you achieve healthfulness. Body Encyclopedia explores the psychological roots of physical ailments and Fasical Release for Structural Balance delves into anatomy. And, in a third volume of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Dr. Michael Shea expertly discusses healing from the heart. Perhaps we should add these books to our list of things for which to be thankful.
by Robert Sitler, Ph.D.
Robert Sitler has spent more than 30 years in Mexico and Guatemala studying Mayan culture with native speakers. Interweaving personal anecdotes with factual information about the roots of traditional Mayan customs, the author immerses readers in a rich indigenous way of life and offers a fresh, more anthropological view of the 2012 phenomenon. Sitler shows how following â€śthe Mayan wayâ€ť can help us ground our lives in harmony with nature, broaden our perspectives on human existence, connect us with our capacity for compassion, and use the vaunted cataclysm of 2012 as a unique chance for growth.
