I have compiled ‘Easy Steps to Natural Healing’ with the help of my partner Swami Tantramurti Saraswati and dear friend Chrissie Coburn-Krzowska. She is an international healer, valued for her down-to-earth approach. We agreed right from the beginning that this book would not be dogmatic with repetitive do’s and don’ts. The outline we felt would be most helpful to the novice was one that gave practical information.
We wanted to reflect the sense of freedom, free-will and fun which is a key part of our approach to life. This does not mean the book is without firm foundations for we have been involved with health and healing for many years. Our aim is to take the dogma and ‘preciousness’ out of healing, especially the myth that it can only be achieved by the expert practitioner. We hope you will be inpired to use the ideas as tools for your own processes and practices.
Once you loosen up and start to look at basic ways of helping yourself and others, your whole philosophy of life will take on a new dimension. Most of us are struggling to find freedom in our lives in one form or another – freedom from too much work or too little work, illness, poverty, restrictive and insatisfactory relatonships, etc. What we are offering is a chance to enjoy, experience and experiment with ways in which you can lighten up and look at life with a broader vision.
We are offering a way to observe yourself and others in a new light. Not with a critical eye but rather a constructive one in which you can improve what you have rather then grieve over what you have not. It offers an opportunity to tsake a good look at the root causes of problems and why you have certain illnesses, then to work out an appropriate healing practise to suit your needs. The easy step-by-step format will help you to heal various aspects of your mind, body, emotions or spirit. (Rosalind Widdowson)
