Today, the evidence is everywhere that meditation improves health, mental acuity, emotional balance and spiritual connection. Leonard Perlmuttter is one of the Western world’s leading pioneers in the introduction of meditation into the cultural firmament, having founded the American Meditation Institute (AMI) in 1996. AMI’s courses are now approved and accredited by the American Medical Association and the American Nurses Association.
Perlmutter, considered one of West’s foremost guides to understanding the nature of consciousness, now offers a heralded book that is an encyclopedic guide to meditation and the Yoga Science that lies behind it.
Praised by such international medical luminaries as Drs. Dean Ornish, Mehmet Oz, Bernie Siegel and Larry Dossey. The Heart and Science of Yoga: The American Meditation Institute’s Empowering Self-Care Program for a Happy, Healthy, Joyful Life shows us the way to meld meditation and yoga into your busy life experience to bring a new level of peace, contentment and wellbeing.
While most North Americans today perceive Yoga as a valuable source of exercise and quieting of the mind, The Heart and Science of Yoga shows that it is so much more. As it was evolved through ancient wisdom, Yoga Science is an eight-step method for managing the life force energy that propels us and connects us to the infinite power that is within and without us all. And the result of mastering it is the bliss and daily joy that lies in the realization of our connection.
This ultimate guidebook to meditation and Yoga Science explains not just what to do BUT WHY TO DO IT—how our choices and actions energetically enhance or diminish our empowerment…. influencing our ability to live well, peacefully and successfully.
One of the most fascinating revelations of Leonard Perlmutter’s The Heart and Science of Yoga, is that when you intentionally turn away from unhealthy temptations toward a better choice, it’s not a sacrifice or a denial. It is actually transforming your energy into greater potency, will power, physical vitality and unlimited creative potential.
Perlmutter’s comprehensive and practical manual, first published in 2005 to great acclaim, and now revised and expanded, connects the dots for those who seek answers and solutions for finding a better, happier life through meditation and Yoga Science. The Heart and Science of Yoga is a master class.
