Gurmukh, internationally renowned "Guru to the Stars" -
including Madonna and Courtney Love - distills her twenty-eight
years of practice into this simple guide to kundalini yoga. Through
her pioneering methods readers will develop the eight areas of the
body that house the "eight human talents" - in as little
as three minutes each day.
Gurmukh's message is simple and to the point: "Happiness
is your birthright, but in order to be happy, you need tools."
The Eight Human Talents is a guide to help readers identify and
successfully utilize the tools that reside within the body. In the
tradition of Deepak Chopra and Marianne Williamson, it is a book of
inspiring and entertaining stories from Gurmukh's lifelong
practice of teaching people to heal themselves. Stars such as
Madonna, David Duchovny, and Courtney Love have been very vocal in
their devotion and praise of Gurmukh, and the dramatic ways in
which she has helped improve the quality of their lives. Now we can
all benefit from her wisdom and healing techniques. The eight human
talents are located in eight powerful energy centers in the body.
The keys to happiness, they are: Faith, Intuition, Truth,
Gratitude, Commitment, Creativity, and Forgiveness. At the end of
each chapter there is one yogic exercise and one meditation.
