There are a plethora of meditation, yoga, health, nutrition, and cookbooks on the market. Many of them address a specific diet or dogma in which they treat the person as if we all have the exact same body and mind. One can argue that in essence we are all the same, but on a functioning level, we sure are different.
This book describes a holistic system – a lifestyle – leading to total health and happiness; one that encompasses everything from attitude, meditation, food, yoga and training of the mind. It operates from the principle that in order to have the best chance to experience bliss, it is best to go about it on all levels.

The book offers a toolbox of the most efficient practices that may fit into today’s lifestyle, extracting from tradition to create powerful contemporary practices. Kept simple, it provides foundations without an overwhelming amount of detail. It provides the essentials that can be utilized right away in life.

Learning to recognize where you are at any given moment is the most fundamental practice that will then allow you to use the tools in this book to come back into balance and live a life of bliss.
