on the chakra system and what each chakra represents.
Only a small number of pages were used to explain the actual meditation, which does guide you through your chakra system to clear the chakras and encourage energy flow. I did find the book helpful and interesting because of this section, but this book is
certainly not a good book for beginners or for anyone not interested in exploring the chakra system.
A large section of the book, deals with group meditation and then
discusses in depth a particular meditation session where each member of the group explains their experience and the author then interprets the member's impressions. I particularly disliked this section of the book, and after reading a few of the member's personal journeys, I totally lost interest in the book. Frankly, the author's "interpretations" reminded me of psychiatric dream analysis and I didn't understand how reading other people's "journeys" could be the least bit beneficial to me.
All in all, this book fell slightly short of mediocre... I believe it could only be truly worthwhile for a select few.
I liked the layout of the book. It is very colorful which goes along with what she talks about with chakras and colors. She uses a lot of her own artwork to illustrate a point she tries to make.
She describes preparing for meditation, turning on the chakras, doing the meditation, turning off the chakras, and then recording the information. She explains that when recording the meditation to not try to interpret what you "see" just record it. She also says do not let others try to interpret what you experienced while meditating.
Why I gave the book a low rating was because she completely contradicts herself. She says don't get interpretations from others than proceeds to offer "interpretations" to peoples experiences that last 40 pages of the book. I have a real problem with authors that can't keep their "opinions" straight.
As far as meditation goes: I didn't learn anything new at all about meditation. I found the book very basic and the key concepts she tries to teach could be summed up into a 10-page pamphlet.
If you like pretty books and colorful artwork then buy this book, but if you want a book with "meat" in it stay away.
In addtion to the crystal clear map that she sets out based on her own experience and professional practice, Michal brings us rigorous research including quotations that delight and surprise.
Even if you have meditated or encountered energy work in other forms - read this for a new approach - and be lovingly guided by Michal's unique voice.
This book offers support in taking steps in self-knowledge and healing and is a mirror of Michal's inspirational teachings and seminars.
I felt moved, refreshed and uplifted while reading this. It is more than information - more than a presentation of a method for profound self-discovery - it is, in itself, an energetic inspiration.
