"This remarkable volume is a groundbreaking integration of Western psychology and Eastern wisdom. The three authors are longtime intrepid explorers of faraway continents and spiritual mysteries. They bring a multidimensional understanding that will deepen the reader's appreciation of the chakra system. Moreover, contemplation of the magnificent color plates is likely to open new channels of intuitive insight into their power." * David Van Nuys, Ph.D., professor emeritus of psychology at Sonoma State University *
"Awakening the Chakras can provide a roadmap for navigating life's journey. The authors have presented their material in an engaging and interesting manner. Colorful artwork and inspirational messages help illuminate the reader's path and fulfill the authors' goal to rouse the inner spirit of those who accept their invitation." * Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., coauthor of The Shamanic Powers of Rolling Thunder *
"The authors have collaborated powerfully to create a rich, poetic, and profound work of art as well as spiritual, psychological science. The collective wisdom and suggested practices are just what is needed for inspiration and balance in challenging times. Prepare to be led on a gentle, yet deep, expansive journey through the revelatory chakra system by the many masters the authors have gathered and generously shared." * Susan J. Wright, author of The Chakras in Shamanic Practice *
"Awakening the Chakras looks at the chakras directly from ancient sources and examines how to use them as a focal point for meditation and other inner work in a clear and concise way. It engages both sides of the brain through storytelling intertwined with historical information in a way that brings us to a place beyond usual perception. Victor, Kooch, and Pieter could not have written this book together without being an example of the harmony of the chakra practices mentioned." * Miriam Jacobs, author of Tarot and the Chakras *
"A multilayered perspective that enhances the information about the chakra system. Weltevrede's artwork brings the words to life. The authors' collective experience with this ancient system of spiritual development has enabled them to create a text that speaks equally to practitioners of all religious/spiritual traditions. This book rises to the top of the pile. It represents not only the most coherent explanation I have read to date but simultaneously the one that is most respectful of the ancient Vedic tradition from which it derives. Kudos to all three authors. It is a job well done!" * Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight magazine *
"Awakening the Chakras is an exquisite book. Beautifully written and illustrated, it is personal, practical, and authoritative. Spiritual and wise, the book itself truly has the potential to help awaken the chakras." * Eleanor Criswell Hanna, Ed.D., professor emeritus of psychology at Sonoma State University *
"There is immense wisdom presented from both the Indian teachers and Western psychology. The synthesis of this remarkable material brought to you by extremely capable people is brilliant. This is not a minor work: It entices you in but demands more than a quick breeze through and can be used as an in-depth how-to manual for each chakra. A few words cannot do justice to this masterful presentation. This is a source you can trust." * Jack R. Neggerman, MSSW, LISW, LICDC, certified gestalt therapist and clinical social worker *
"In this book Western psychology is informed by the power of Indian spiritual forms through a fuller understanding of the chakra system or hierarchy. The well-written narrative is easily accessible and an encouraging self-reflection at a deeper level than is usually possible in most Western systems of thought. This new work introduces the reader to a wisdom-centered view of self-awareness and consciousness." * Charles Merrill, Ed.D., professor emeritus of psychology at Sonoma State University *
"The authors are not only philosophers but have also given voice to divine guidance--a wisdom beyond ordinary reach." * Ramesh Rastogi, lifelong associate of Harish Johari *
