Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0743227824, Paperback)"Every single one of us is suffering from the same problem," says Baron Baptiste. "We are not living from our authentic selves." Journey into Power offers more than yoga poses; it also aims to "rewire your mind" and "recharge your spiritual batteries."
Baptiste's program, based on his weeklong "Journey into Power" boot camps, integrates the physical and spiritual components of yoga. His daily "Power Vinyasa Yoga Practice," done in a heated room, is a challenging series of 54 yoga poses, one flowing into another. The poses are well illustrated and clearly described, including modifications. Baptiste encourages you to reach your edge ("where we come right up against ourselves and what we can do and be") by holding a pose for a breath longer than you think you can or stretching a quarter-inch farther.
Eight spiritual/psychological principles, described cogently and often lyrically, guide the transformation process. Principle 5, "In Order to Heal You Need to Feel," has this introduction: "The real irony of spiritual growth is that instead of being some miraculous experience, it feels a lot more like going to pieces."
The rest of the program includes a cleansing diet, daily meditation, and a strong, spiritual focus in daily living. Journey into Power is highly recommended for people ready for a major physical, emotional, and spiritual change. --Joan Price
