We’re all struggling to find time in our lives, but somehow there’s never enough to go around. We’re too tired to think, too wired to focus, less efficient than we want to be, and guilty about not getting enough time with our loved ones.
We all know that we feel starved for time, but what are we actually doing about it? Precious little. In The Art of Stopping Time, New York Times bestselling author Pedram Shojai guides us towards success with what he calls Time Prosperity—having the time to accomplish what you want in life without feeling compressed, stressed, overburdened, or hurried.
So how do we achieve this Time Prosperity? We learn to Stop Time. To do that, Shojai walks us though a 100-day Gong, which is based on the Chinese practice of designating an amount of time each day to perform a specific task. The ritual helps you become mindful, train your mind, instill new habits, and fundamentally transform your relationship with time. We can find moments of mental awareness while in the shower, eating a snack, listening to podcasts, and even while binge-watching our favorite TV shows.
He shares how to use Gongs to reprogram your habits, reduce stress, increase energy, exercise the ancient practice of mindfulness, and become a master of your time. Whether you do one per day, a bunch at a time, or read the whole book in one sitting, practicing the Gongs is a dedicated act of self-love that snaps us out of our daily trance and brings the light of awareness to our consciousness. The more we practice, the more we wake up, and the better off we are.
Bestselling author Pedram Shojai, “The Urban Monk,” presents a comprehensive guide on how Taoist alchemical practices can help you release stress, harness life force energy, and awaken your true self.
“We have fallen asleep to the knowledge of our true nature, and now it is time to wake up.” —Pedram Shojai
There is a way to break free from trance of modern life and awaken to your true, limitless nature. The path lies in an ancient system of Taoist alchemy, and with Inner Alchemy, qi gong master, physician, and former monk Pedram Shojai presents an in-depth guide for harnessing the transformational power of this wisdom in your own life:
- Part 1 lays out Taoist principles and philosophy for understanding the body’s energy matrix and the nature of our current challenges—all in down-to-earth language
- Part 2 covers specific exercises and techniques for mastering your energy and awakening your true power—including diet, meditation, exercise, sleep, lifestyle tips, and traditional qi gong sets
- Part 3 provides an advanced exploration of traditional Taoism for modern times, along with a 100-day practice formula to help you regulate your energy, wake up from the hypnotic daze of daily life, and make the world we live in a better place
“The process of turning the material ‘lead’ of our human experience into the ‘gold’ of awakening is the essence of this ancient science of spirituality,” writes Shojai. “My promise is that if you practice what you learn in this book, your life will change in ways that you have never imagined.”
Trauma is unresolved pain. It hums in the background of our lives and robs us of the joy, faith, peace, and love we fully deserve.
In their groundbreaking book, Pedram Shojai, O.M.D., New York Times best-selling author of The Urban Monk and The Art of Stopping Time, and Nick Polizzi, author of The Sacred Science, take you on a journey that encompasses:
• a clear understanding of trauma, where it comes from, and how it affects every part of your life
• an exploration of modern and ancient therapies and practices for healing
• real-life tragedies turning into stories of triumph, hope, and survival
Drawn from the wisdom and insights of the world's top doctors, therapists, and experts, Trauma will show you that no matter what you have endured, how long you have carried it, or how deeply embedded it is, you can be free from pain and suffering. Your road to recovery and whole-body healing is before you, and with it the richer
and more profound connections that you seek with yourself and your loved ones.
