Mijares, Sonia Gilbert, Sheldon Kramer, Ilse Middendorf, Michael Sky, Puran Bair, and other well-known experts and international workshop leaders take up a wide range of Western, Eastern, and Middle Eastern breathing practices, describing the historical development of these techniques and philosophies, and providing examples of modern practices, stories of healing, and specific exercises for application.
The book covers every major accomplishment in quantum mechanics over the past 100 years. It starts with the early experiments that tried to determine the nature of light and moves forward, concluding with Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, which finally explained the dual nature of light. The author uses many illustrations to keep the tone of the material light-hearted and user-friendly. They are particularly valuable in helping readers with the mathematics that is essential in all of the major accomplishments discussed throughout the book. Additionally, the book provides interesting stories about the scientists behind these groundbreaking accomplishments; these stories show that science has a history and that all ideas and discoveries are works in progress.
