Janis Lander PhD has written a handy reference to assist people with meditation practices, including guidelines for assessing teachers, tips for dealing with common problems, and a context for unsettling experiences.
The narrow focus of spiritual systems is defined as knowledge acquired within a theoretical framework of energy structures and consciousness.
Lander explores standard methods and predictable outcomes in both Western and Eastern spiritual systems, seeking a common thread and a broad vision. Spiritual art is examined as an iconography for philosophical concepts.
The book is based on twenty-five years of practice and teaching, and Dr Lander has previously published her research with Routledge/Taylor & Francis, New York. The author is presenting ancient knowledge reconsidered in light of 21st century science and technology.
