WHAT ARE YOU READING THIS SUMMER?
I’ve had ecstatic experiences in book stores. Most notably in a bookstore that used to be THE spiritual shop in LA on Melrose place, (now replaced by a fancy clothing store), called the Bodhi Tree. Surrounded by towering shelves of lifetimes of work, I was looking for a particular answer on awakening, with a lot of desire but no particular direction. When a book practically fell off a shelf into my hands; The Crack in the Cosmic Egg: Challenging Constructs of Mind and Reality. That book would lead me to Joseph Chilton Pearce, that would cycle me back around to my teachers teachers in India .
Crack in the Cosmic Egg would talk about peak flow experiences that humans have in moments, where the distortion of time and space opens up a window into superhuman capacity. As this was Pearce’s first breakthrough in 1971, I skipped forward to the latest book at that time, (2003) Spiritual Initiation and the Breakthrough of Consciousness: The Bond of Power. It was while reading this book, and reading about the Shaktipat Pearce experienced himself with the Hamsa mantra, gifted him by Swami Muktananda, that I had my own "spiritual initiation.” And a Mantra that I had already been given, from a lineage that I was already studying, suddenly became alive, from a Psychologist who found himself on the same journey.
Books are living documents of a path that illuminates an avenue of exploration for us, in the Now, of reading the words.
Both Scott and I love books and bringing alive the information held within them.
You can find our ever-growing list of inspirational books on our website, from Yoga, philosophy and awakening to science and psychology.
Lastly there is always the possibility to practice with us online. You can find classes from Tara and other certified teachers in English, Swedish and German, as well as some free somatic practices from Scott.
We love following the breadcrumb trail left by our predecessor, and we hope so do you.
In love and light
Tara & Scott
