5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely detailed and insightful
Anodea's writings are easy to understand as well as incredibly detailed. The reading was enjoyable and insightful. I was fascinated with her psychological point of view and found it to be very accurate.
I attended Anodea's training recently in Pennsylvania. She is delightful. The material in the book was put into workable situations so that processing and healing...

2.0 out of 5 stars OK, as far as it goes
While the writing is easy to follow, I found this book to be rather annoying. I realize she is writing for people who may not have any knowledge of the chakra system. However, I found that her writing style was verbose, of the school "why say in a paragraph what you can say in six?" Despite that, I felt the book was lacking information. If you want to know...

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely detailed and insightful, 10 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology of the Chakra System as Path to the Self (Paperback)
Anodea's writings are easy to understand as well as incredibly detailed. The reading was enjoyable and insightful. I was fascinated with her psychological point of view and found it to be very accurate.
I attended Anodea's training recently in Pennsylvania. She is delightful. The material in the book was put into workable situations so that processing and healing can be accomplished. Her "mystical, magical" way keeps you interested... no time for falling asleep.
Highly recommend this book as well as Sevenfold Journey for anyone interested in gaining a greater understanding of the Chakra system. Sevenfold Journey helps with the clearing and balancing process. Excellent adjunct reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing Eastern & Western Philosophy together, 9 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology of the Chakra System as Path to the Self (Paperback)
This is an extraordinary book, succeeding in bringing Eastern and Western psychology & philosophy together in a comprehensive, down-to-earth, understandable way. Anodea Judith presents the chakra-system as a personal ladder to spiritual and emotional growth, almost analogue to the stages of development in the model of Erikson. What's unique (or at least, special) is the well-succeeded integration of Eastern and Western models of child and adult development. Hats off to Anodea Judith!

This review is from: Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology of the Chakra System as Path to the Self (Paperback)
While the writing is easy to follow, I found this book to be rather annoying. I realize she is writing for people who may not have any knowledge of the chakra system. However, I found that her writing style was verbose, of the school "why say in a paragraph what you can say in six?" Despite that, I felt the book was lacking information. If you want to know more you are encouraged to buy yet another of her books, the workbook. And so, you are left rather hanging. I've encountered other such books where you need to buy additional books, and it is a real turn off, and this is the primary reason for only two stars. Go borrow it from the library. A better book for an east-west discussion of chakras and psychology is Carolyn Myss's Anatomy of Spirit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true fountain of knowledge, 5 May 2008
By 
R. E. Russnak "Love Energy Healer" (Berkshire ,UK) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology of the Chakra System as Path to the Self (Paperback)
I suppose the true value of a book emerges over the years. I have been delving into this book time and time again. After the initial yourney of self-discovery, recognising the signs of my own issues and that of the people around me, it has become a constant companion. What better recommendation is there for any book?

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally! The Western bridge to Eastern esoteric thought!, 21 Aug 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology of the Chakra System as Path to the Self (Paperback)
A successful merging of Eastern and Western thought about the human condition. The ideas behind the Easern Chakra system are perceptively linked to Western psycho-social issues. The philosophies of enlightenment, embodiment and integration merge to become a profound discussion of the human condition.

By A Customer
This review is from: Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology of the Chakra System as Path to the Self (Paperback)
I love how easy this book is to read. It reads as easily as a novel, yet contains a wealth of information about human growth and development as it pertains to the chakra system. I highly recommend it!
