Scientists trekked to the remote village of Namche, Nepal to record the brain activity of meditating Tibetan Buddhist monks for the first time. To measure monks' brain activity, Krigolson's team used a headband that records brain waves and displays them on a laptop in real time. The study of 27 monks recorded brain activity at rest, during meditation and while playing video games. Researchers found that monks' brains are still very active in meditation
Created by world–renowned John of God, Doctor & Healer, this therapy gained national recognition when Oprah Winfrey interviewed John of God in Brazil. Countless people report of physical, or emotional challenges which have been eased or cured.
In the midst of Silicon Valley’s hectic energy, some people may seek holistic healing to resolve the chaos around them. Until last month, Los Altos lacked a streamlined holistic healing space aimed at Silicon Valley workers, according to D. Krystal Starr, owner of iChakras. Starr opened her holistic healing center June 17 at the corner of Main and First streets. As the name implies, iChakras specializes in healing the chakras
Krystal is uniquely gifted. She offers insights not available from any other source. Brings a lifetime of study and practice to her work. Is deeply dedicated to helping others. Nayaswami Asha, Palo Alto, CA
I met Krystal Starr a number of months ago. I'd been feeling inner changes in my life, and thought -- more or less on a whim -- that it might be interesting to get "third-party" corroboration for those feelings from someone who knew nothing about me. Accordingly, visited her in her professional capacity as a counselor. She in fact knew nothing about me when I walked in her door. Thinking of me as a "normal" human being, with normal worldly concerns, she talked to me of my family. The longer she talked, the larger that "family" seemed to grow. I said nothing to help her along, but in a very short time she had tuned into my inner nature with astonishing clarity, and was talking on quite a different level. I must say, Krystal astonished me with her insights. I have consulted people from time to time, never depending on them, but interested, as I was in her case, in getting a second opinion on my own directions. I'd been feeling that my life had been miraculously spared, and wanted corroboration of this fact without asking for it. Krystal tuned in on her own to the fact that, yes, I had experienced a miracle. I was very pleased to find that Krystal, more perhaps than anyone else, tuned into me as an individual and gave me the insights I was wanting - insights that have proved true and that I have found helpful. Since then, I have come to look on her as a personal friend also. Swami Kriyananda, India
This is a most intriguing book! I would very much like to know how many people are helped by it, and how deeply. The subject itself is fascinating: the spinal centers in our bodies; how they affect us; the present and potential ways they affect our consciousness. Paramhansa Yogananda, in his world- known book Autobiography of a Yogi, states that thoughts are universally, not individually, rooted. This means that our brains do not produce the ideas that come out of them: they merely express concepts that belong to whatever level of consciousness we are living at, at the time. Any change in our level of consciousness alters instantly our very view of reality. The levels of reality we perceive depend entirely on where, in the spine, our energy and consciousness are centered. The chakras, viewed outwardly, simply channel energy to different regions of the body: the heart, the stomach, the sex organs, the legs, etc. Viewed inwardly, however—that is to say, when that same energy is withdrawn to the spine and directed upward toward the brain—the chakras become portals that open onto ever-increasing enlightenment. The spinal chakras, therefore, are of central importance to the science of yoga.I pray that this book will help many people better to know their own inner selves.
