"Yoga" comes from the Sanskrit word "yug" which means to unite, uniting our individual self with that which gave rise to it - the Divine. And the practices of yoga and meditation are the means for this.

An Easy Guide To Meditation

99 Pages - $25

Of what value are the thousands of thoughs that pass through our minds each day? How many of them have really brought us any benefit? Very few. Constant states of anxiety prevent us from facing up to and coping with the relentless demands of modern life. It is no wonder that millions of people feel depressed, weighed down by impossible tasks, unable to cope and unable to escape. Meditation is often misunderstood. Although relaxation and peace are some of the benefits which accrue from meditative states, they should not be the sole aim. It is a growth process and is acquired gradually, and then only when there is a persistent search motivated by disciplined desire. Meditation can transfer the destructive energy from a disturbed and turbulent state into a creative and peaceful orientation.


Reflections Of A Yogi

249 Pages - $39.95

The vision presented in this book is a compilation of a stream of consciousness that has emerged over many years in response to so many of my students who were in need of: time, patience and attention to heal when they were broken; help in keeping a life together during times of pain, illness, suffering and mourning, and perspectives that nurture, sustain and enrich, to create a framework for personal and inner work and spiritual well-being. This book also bears the imprit of the synthesis of Yoga, Vedanta, Buddhism and Ayurveda - the fields of spirituality and holistic medicine that have inflamed my heart and consolidated the refinements gathered in these last thirty years of teaching Yoga in Australia.
