Advanced Autogenic Training and Primal Awareness: Techniques for Wellness, Deeper Connection to Nature, and Higher Consciousness
A step-by-step guide to optimize health, reconnect with Nature, and access the vast knowledge of the universe through autogenic training
• Provides step-by-step instructions for 40 autogenic and primal mind techniques
• Includes techniques to restore our primal connection to the world of Nature through practices such as Forest Bathing, Nature’s Breath, and Feeling in the Dark
Developed by German doctor Johannes Schultz in the early 20th century, autogenic training teaches you how to use the mind-body connection to influence and regulate the body’s normally involuntary autonomic functions by passively tapping into your central and peripheral nervous systems. Often used for stress relief, autogenic training can also be used for asthma, chronic pain, migraines, constipation, anxiety, panic attacks, and a host of other conditions. In this book, James Endredy takes autogenic training to a new level, revealing how to use AT practices to optimize health as well as reawaken your senses, reconnect with Nature and tap into the vast knowledge and power of the universe.
Beginning with the 7 standard formulas of AT, the author provides step-by-step instructions for 40 AT and primal mind techniques. He explains how to add specific healing affirmations and visualizations to your AT practice as well as how to work with colors and the chakras. He offers advanced trainings to rekindle your primal touch sensitivity, experience enhanced sight and hearing, and awaken your primal sense of smell. He reveals how to use AT to restore our primal connection to the world of Nature through practices such as Forest Bathing, Nature’s Breath, and Primal Fire Connection.
Drawing on more than 25 years of experience living and working with indigenous cultures, including the Huichol, Iroquois, Sioux, Maya, and Hopi, Endredy shows how, much like a vision quest, this unique combination of AT and primal mind awareness offers rites of passage sorely missing from modern life. It gives you the tools to go deeper into your physiological being, to directly experience how we relate to the world, and to reconnect with the ancient wisdom within each of us.
“In this comprehensive and intriguing training guide James Endredy not only makes a powerful case for fostering the primal mind of our ancestors and indigenous teachers but in a step-by-step process provides numerous specific exercises and techniques for cultivating a shamanic state of awareness.” ― José Luis Stevens, Ph.D., author of Awaken the Inner Shaman and Encounters with Power
“Wow, an actual step-by-step procedure of something we all know about, setting your intention and letting go. This has always been a little out there for me until I read this book and it clicked in my mind. I’m a long-time follower of visualization techniques by Shakti Gawain and the power of intention by people like Joe Dispenza, but this technique takes you to a new level of understanding the mechanics of these procedures.” ― Dhara Lemos, Lotus Guide Magazine
“James Endredy continues to tap into the primordial ways of healing. Advanced Autogenic Training and Primal Awareness is a marriage of his power of storytelling and his vast personal history with the practice. It is not often in this lifetime that one meets a true spiritual master, but this generation has James, and this book is a must-have for those desirous of deepening their connection with the I AM.” (Shawn Tassone, M.D., Ph.D., coauthor of Spiritual Pregnancy: Develop, Nurture & Embrace the Journey)
