About the Book:
A Jungian therapist and a Tibetan lama perform a similar service for their respective clients and students. Both are veterans of the inner journey who guide us through the perils and pitfalls, if we cooperate, on our quest for healing and wholeness." The author introduces the Tantric methods of Tibetan Buddhism and draws correlations between this practice and the teachings of Carl Jung. In a clear, concise style, Breaux points out how many psychological truths are woven into the fabric of the Tantric doctrine. The language of the Tantra is visionary — bounding in symbols and metaphors produce spontaneously in the meditation of ancient yogis. At the heart of tantra is the experience of a divine power within the human being that can be awakened. The format of the book begins in the root chakra and follows the path of your psychological and spiritual continuum, up through the chakaras. Each chapter includes a medi-tation practice employing Tibean Tantric Deities and procedures. Although not a substitute for a genuine Tantric teacher, the book will enable readers to experience the Tantra through suggested meditation. You enter the light within when you step outside of your own shadow. The basic drive to remember your essential nature surges beneath all your fears, desires and preconceptions. Although they approach this process from opposite sides of the world, both Tantra and Jungian psychology aspire to fathom this mysterious process and create the necessary conditions so spiritual transformation can occur.
