4.0 out of 5 stars Spiritual Nutrition, 16 May 2008
By 
Tami Brady "Tami Brady: Transition-Empowermen... (Calgary, Canada) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
Becoming a vegetarian, eating certain foods, or fasting is not going to lead you instantly to enlightenment. Awakening the Kundalini, reaching enlightenment, examining ones spirituality are paths that can take lifetimes worth of work or can spontaneously occur through grace. With that said, there are certain things that you can do that can facilitate the process.

Spiritual Nutrition sets out six foundations that help purify the system and ease the natural progress of one's spirituality: nutrition, building prana (life force), service, spiritual guidance, silence, and Kundalini Awakening. Although each of our journeys are unique, the majority of seekers do some work in each of these areas throughout their lives. As expected the choices in each of these categories are quite varied. For instance, spiritual guidance can be received through reading scripture, through the assistance of a mentor, by experiencing sacred music, or by communing with nature. Likewise, silence can be attained through meditation, prayer, mantra, or chanting. The possibilities are virtually endless.

To most people on a spiritual path finding the appropriate way to express these different parts of the self seems pretty simple in theory if not in practice. Of the six foundations, nutrition is probably the most difficult to comprehend. Fully understanding how different foods interact with your body, learning how much food your body requires, and discovering ways to reduce the toxins that you take in is quite an overwhelming prospect. For this reason, Spiritual Nutrition goes into a good deal of detail for this category. The purpose isn't really to subscribe to one particular diet set out by the author. Instead, the author seeks to educate the reader and give him or her a place to start his or her own explorations. I appreciate that.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Spiritual Guide Book for Living - For those serious about purifying their bodies, 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an incredible book. It incorporates very personal experiences and devotional poetry from the author's own spiritual journey with scientific and nutritional info on what's needed to succeed with a raw and living foods lifestyle. Cousens applies Ayurvedic knowledge and theory to the raw foods approach, as well as setting out lots of information about the different nutrients needed and from which foods sources these may be obtained. Readers are encouraged to consider which Ayurvedic dosha they are and how this may affect their body's needs. Also dealt with is a fascinating and comprehensive look at the kundalini awakening process and the body's subtle energy centres, the chakras. Gabriel's recommended approach to spiritual life 'The Six Foundations' is set forth to guide the reader into considering a balanced, holistic approach to spiritual living. This is a book that has taught me lots as I've encountered kundalini experiences on my own journey and answers many questions. Gabriel's spirit of devotion and service to others is truly awe inspiring. A book I wouldn't want to be without, one I keep returning to again and again... a spiritual guide book for life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fleshes those Raw-Food bones toward a better future!, 31 Oct 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Spiritual Nutrition: The Rainbow Diet (Paperback)
Having initially borrowed this book several years ago, I was captivated with its pragmatic approach to embracing a wholistic food philosophy. By happy chance I found another copy, years later. Entranced once again with its well-reasoned (& as I feel - a vegan with scientific mindset) common sense explanation and advice... it was the perfect gift for another sprouting, '110%' friend. So I have no reservation in buying another copy - extending the positive encouragement that started with V. Kulvinaskas' 'Living into the C21st'. And giving 'Grist to the Mill' ('Flesh on the Bone' if you must) to help humanity evolve & survive. This review is GMO free.
