From acclaimed yoga teacher Guru Jagat comes a wildly cool, practical, and beautifully illustrated guide to applying the simple and super-effective technology of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation to everyday life, upgrading your "operating system" inside and out. With Invincible Living, Guru Jagat shares a radical way of understanding yoga—not just as something to do in practice, but as a broader principle for living. Candid, encouraging, and irreverent, Guru Jagat shows how Kundalini Yoga—which forgoes complex poses for energy-boosting, breath-driven exercises, quick meditations, and simple poses most of which you can do at your desk—can reset your life and well-being, regardless of your age or background. Designed explicitly for everyday people, not ashram-going or gym-bodied yogis, fast, effective Kundalini techniques can be done anywhere, from the car to the conference room. There’s no need to have a bendy back or toned arms. You don’t even need a mat: just a quiet space to clear your head, and as little as a minute out of your day. From beauty and self-care to work and relationships, Invincible Living tackles both the mind—from mood elevation and stress reduction to renewed mental clarity—and the body—from anti-aging, and increased metabolism to amped up energy. Packed with tips, exercises, and step-by-step instructions and fully photographed and illustrated in Guru Jagat’s fresh, handmade-meets-hipster style, Invincible Living is fresh take on ancient wisdom: a must-have guide for anyone who wants simple, effective, tools for a supercharged life as taught by a uniquely compelling teacher who upends all preconceptions about yoga. Invincible Living includes 100 color photographs and illustrations.

With Shakta’s guidance, you’ll discover: Fun, effective yoga exercises and meditations for children and adults Ancient wisdom and leading-edge teachings to help children be the radiant beings that they are Techniques for staying connected to your inner self while meeting challenges with children Tips for the art of deep listening and neutral, friendly talk Natural discipline that uses the magic of imagination and natural consequences How to place trust in a child’s natural self-correcting abilities Praise: "In this wise and important book, Shakta Khalsa offers teachings and yoga practices that help us in becoming a true mirror for our children's goodness and allow them to fully inhabit their aliveness and spirit."—Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance "The Yoga Way to Radiance provides valuable tools to assist us in embracing our inner guidance, expressing our unique beings, learning each moment, living with wonder and joy, and mirroring that to our children and the world."—Carla Hannaford, PhD, author of Smart Moves and Playing in the Unified Field “What would the world be like if children were introduced to the spiritual aspects of yoga at a young age? This wonderful book builds a bridge between adults and children that reflects the unity that is the true meaning of yoga. If you love yoga, or know a child that could benefit, this book can be your guide.”—Anodea Judith, PhD, author of Wheels of Life and Anodea Judith’s Chakra Yoga “Shakta’s The Yoga Way to Radiance is an inspiring collection of stories and wisdom from her practice as counselor, yoga teacher trainer for children, and parent. You could open this book to any page and find a solution, a reminder, a breathing practice that could help you come back to yourself and be present for a child.

Children are the future of tomorrow and it’s about time that we pay attention to their needs. Through this book, Shakta is doing exactly that, to help in this worthy cause. It is her amazing effort that will change our future. Through her wonderful and comprehensive work she imparts her lifetime of wisdom and experience to help to cultivate a happier and healthier future generation.”—Dr. Madan Bali, PhD, author of Taming the Mind; founder and director of Yoga Bliss Research and Training Institute “Scientific evidence shows that yoga improves us in a number of ways: physically on the body and breath, emotionally by enhancing self-regulation of emotion and stress, cognitively by increasing mind-body awareness/mindfulness, and spiritually through unitive/contemplative experiences that improve life meaning and purpose. It is a challenge to live a yoga lifestyle incorporating these changes, and even more of a challenge to incorporate yogic practices and principles into the adult-child relationship. This book clearly elucidates the yogic psychological/philosophical concepts and practical strategies to achieve this, thereby providing children with the life skills to excel as human beings.”—Sat Bir Singh Khalsa, PhD, assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School; chief editor of the International Journal of Yoga Therapy and the textbook The Principles and Practice of Yoga in Health Care

"The book is clearly written for the general reader and includes many descriptions of trance experiences. It may serve as a good introduction to the nature and appeal of the shamanic revival in modern Western cultures." —Theological Book Review "... a case study in experiential anthropology that offers a unique mix of autobiography, mythology, experiential research, and archaeological data to support a challenging thesis—that certain body postures may help induce specific trance states." —Shaman’s Drum "This is a spellbinding and exceptionally readable book by an extraordinary woman." —Yoga Journal "And suddenly the understanding of my own vision washed over me like a mighty wave... For life or for death, I was committed to that mighty realm of which I was shown a brief reminder, the world where all was forever motion and emergence, that realm where the spirits ride the wind." —from the Prologue Goodman reexamines our notions of the nature of reality by studying the ritual postures of native art assumed by her subjects during trance states. For readers desiring to discover this world of ancient myths, she has included a practical guide on how to achieve such ecstatic experiences.

"Live without your spirit guides and you miss out on an enormous support system that could make your life infinitely easier and more enjoyable." This is a clear and thoughtful introduction to building relationships with your spirit guides. It shows readers how helpful spirit guides and angels can be in everything from the simplest to the most challenging of life decisions and how easy they are to connect with, too. Our spirit guides help us to: Fulfill our purpose Make decisions that will move us forward faster Stop sabotaging ourselves as well as judging ourselves and everyone else Remember that we are more than our job or house or relationship See ourselves as beautiful and everything in life as a gift Give ourselves and everybody else a break Keep growing until the day we leave our bodies behind Go beyond the life we hoped for and onto the life we never even imagined And they do all of these things when we're ready and not a nanosecond before. They also often come quietly. As the author states: ”If we expect help from Spirit to arrive with the sound of trumpets and blinding light, we'll overlook all the nuanced help that's delivered in small ways every day.”
