'When you move toward that which is most fulfilling and life-enhancing - with joy and pleasure - healing follows.' - Christiane Northrup, M.D. Life is meant to be joyous! We are pleasure-seeking creatures by nature. Joy makes us younger, smarter, more intuitive and healthier - with better hormonal balance and immune-system functioning. Joy even positively affects our metabolisms. On this CD programme, Christiane Northrup provides a ten-step prescription for bringing joy into our lives every day. We can overcome habitual patterns of negative thinking, guilt and pain to evoke the power of joy right now!

This is a good book, however, for those on a serious spiritual path, the advice from another book available through our library (Autobiography of a Yogi) is more profound. This advice is not unique to Paramahansa Yogananda, or his teacher - many spiritual paths recommend disengaging from both pursuing pleasure (desires, cravings) and avoiding pain (aversions, fears):

“Pain and pleasure are transitory; endure all dualities with calmness, trying at the same time to remove yourself beyond their power. Imagination is the door through which disease as well as healing enters. Disbelieve in the reality of sickness even when you are ill; an unrecognized visitor will flee!” (p. 135)

This was fun to listen to with lots of anecdotes and laugh out loud moments. I loved it on audio.
