Atlas of Mind, Body and Spirit

Front Cover
Octopus Books, 2006 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 224 pages
This beautifully illustrated, holistic view of human anatomy makes graphically clear how consciousness and spirit are manifested and revealed in the physiology of the body. The in-depth coverage is both accessible and authoritative. In large full-color diagrams and photographs, we see how organs, nerves, bones, and muscles connect with the meridian lines and chakras used in ancient therapies, and come to understand how the principles of alternative medicine relate to the discoveries of science. By gathering together for the first time the wisdom of acupuncture, yoga, kabbalah, and shamanism with the practices of conventional medicine, osteopathy, and the Alexander Technique, the atlas gives a vivid overall picture of everything we know today about the interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit.
