    This was an amazingly worthwhile book: a most definite read for yoga teachers, meditation teachers, spiritual teachers of all kinds, people meditating or doing yoga and other spiritual practices on their own. I don't want to scare anyone of the path that they have chosen, but I know that for a lot of people there are certain things that come up once they start meditation or a similar practice. These might be: * fatigue * problems with colleagues and family * feeling burned out * becoming spaced out ( This was an amazingly worthwhile book: a most definite read for yoga teachers, meditation teachers, spiritual teachers of all kinds, people meditating or doing yoga and other spiritual practices on their own. I don't want to scare anyone of the path that they have chosen, but I know that for a lot of people there are certain things that come up once they start meditation or a similar practice. These might be: * fatigue * problems with colleagues and family * feeling burned out * becoming spaced out (ungrounded) * becoming sensitive to noises, smells and energy * encountering more obstacles on a path they thought would provide some smooth sailing * etc. This book explains in a clear and concise way why this happens. There's nothing life threatening in meditation or yoga, but the spiritual practices that we do are meant to help is in our daily lives. When it starts becoming harder, it is time to take a step back and find another method that works better for you. This book explains why eastern and western minds and bodies need to meditate in different ways; how to keep the balance between your spiritual growth and the material world, how to release the energy that you build during meditation, in a safe and (most importantly) effective way, what helps you retain your fire and light and what will deplete it quickly. It also gives a lot of hitherto unmentioned cautionary points for people who have/had cancer, AIDS or are pregnant, etc. It is not a dietary book, although it has very clear recommendations on when in your practice (and for which practices) you should become vegetarian, as well as which practices people with vices (like smoking, drinking and using drugs) should refrain from doing. It also has some excellent advice on choosing healers and teachers for your life. Another aspect of this book that I really found interesting, was the effect that meditation and yoga can have on children and babies, whether done by their parents or by themselves. Again, safe and effective methods are given and guidance is given on what works for babies, toddlers, teens and young adults. The practices in this book have been developed for their efficiency and safety, with quicker options available for those who have little time in their busy lives. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is consciously following a path for their spiritual growth, as well as for any yoga or spiritual teacher, because you have no idea how your practices may impact on someone else, and practices are not always transferable from one person to the next. As a teacher, you have a responsibility to know how your advice may be affecting another person's health and mentality. This is just one of the books that will firstly remind you that one way does NOT fit all, but also, teach you the ins and outs of how to best equip a student, as well as yourself, for maximum growth, awareness and inner peace. From a personal point of view: My current training as a Yoga Teacher is extensive. It is not a fly by night course. It is 2 years long and we do chakras, mantras, mudras, bandhas, meditation, the philosophy of Patanjali and much more, besides the asanas which are always included in a Yoga Training course. I have also done my own fair share of reading and studying, and this is the first book that deals with the possible side effects of doing meditation or yoga that does not suite your current capability. I am thoroughly impressed with this book, and my only problem is that Master Del Pe's books, CDs and DVDs are not more accessible to people all over the world. Oh, AND that I took so long to finish it. I usually slump off a little when a book gets to the practical practices as I need to do what I am reading in order to understand what I am reading, and this is not always possible or desired.
