Praise for Meditation and Yoga in Psychotherapy "From the wisdom of ancient cultures to modern neuroscience, the authors skillfully create a bridge of understanding between the practice of meditation, yoga, and psychotherapy. The Simpkins are at their best in describing how everyone can learn to integrate their own brain, body, and mind to facilitate a creative synchrony of healing and well-being." —Kathryn Rossi, PhD Coeditor, Collected Works of Milton H. Erickson: The Nature of Therapeutic Hypnosis "This reader-friendly text is directed toward therapists and healthcare workers who are considering incorporating yoga and meditation into their work. These technologies are time-honored and appear to have beneficial effects on contemporary clients and patients. Meditation and Yoga in Psychotherapy serves as an informative introduction to these¿practices, and explains how a therapist might integrate such practices into their work. The chapters on neuroscience research and healthy aging are unique in books of this nature, and the discussion of alleviating depression alone is worth the price of the book." —Stanley Krippner, PhDProfessor of Psychology, Saybrook UniversityCoauthor, Haunted by Combat: Understanding PTSD in War Veterans A thoughtful and pragmatic guide for integrating meditation and yoga techniques into traditional psychotherapy Meditation and Yoga in Psychotherapy is an inspiring "how-to" guide grounded in the neuroscientific and clinical evidence that supports the use of meditation and other yoga practices to improve clients' mental health.

This book fills the need for an introductory text that opens the field up to the beginner and takes them to higher-level thinking about neuroscience. Neuroscience has captured the interest of students, professionals, and the general public. In fact it is so new, that there are very few books that gather it together in one text. Neuroscience is an amalgamation of many fields: psychology, cognitive science, chemistry, biology, engineering, philosophy, mathematics, and statistics. People who are new to the discipline have to be able to find their way through all of these fields together. In addition, they need to understand the highly technical lexicon, modeling methods, and theoretical assumptions used to describe brain structure, function, and the interaction between them. This book helps readers navigate the conventions used to describe the brain that developed through the years. The authors crystallize the complex modeling methods and technologies so that readers understand what they are saying and how to use them. They address the important underlying principles and important issues of neuroscience, with the debates and discussions that are ongoing as the field evolves. They also include many salient fine-grained details so that the book is not just an overview, but also a useful guide for many levels of readers.

Qigong heißt wörtlich: „mit der Lebensenergie arbeiten“. Alle Übungen der bekannten chinesischen Bewegungspraxis haben die Stärkung der Lebenskraft zum Ziel. Sie dienen somit der generellen Gesunderhaltung und Kräftigung, der Vorbeugung und Behandlung von Krankheiten und nicht zuletzt der psychischen Stabilisierung und spirituellen Entwicklung. Der Qigong-Meister Kenneth Cohen erklärt in diesem international als Grundlagenwerk anerkannten Klassiker nicht nur die Übungspraxis und die philosophischen Grundlagen, sondern er widmet sich auch eingehend dem Verständnis der Heilfunktionen. Dabei berücksichtigt er vor allem auch den westlichen Zugang aus naturwissenschaftlicher, bioenergetischer und medizinischer Sicht. Aus den detaillierten Anleitungen zu den Zyklen „Die acht Brokate“ oder „Das Spiel der fünf Tiere“ sowie mit Hilfe der wirksamen Atem- und Entspannungsübungen kann sich jeder ein individuelles Übungsprogramm zusammenstellen und Qigong erfolgreich in den Alltag integrieren

Die Weisheitslehren Tibets sind der spirituelle Schlüssel zu einem neuen Verständnis von Glück und zeigen uns im Westen den Weg dorthin.
