The Freedom Writers Diary: How a Teacher and 150 T&hellip by Freedom Writers

This book contains sad and graphic accounts of the lives of inner city students in the form of over 100 personal diary recollections. The students describe in detail physical and sexual abuse.

This book is great for anyone seeking personal transformation… Read more

"Nidra" in Sanskrit means "sleep" or "slumber," which is the closest experience to the state we experience in hypnosis and deep meditation as described on this CD. In Indian psychology, we have three states of awareness.

The first is waking consciousness called "jagrat," where our awareness is conditioned by time and space. The conscious mind predominates in this state.

The second state is dreaming conscious called "svapna." This is the state where dreams and visions occur. The subconscious mind holds sway here. Hypnotic states with focus and full attention are possible here.

The third state is of dreamless sleep, which is deep sleep without any disturbance… Read more
