A book launching at the Harrow Arts Centre next week, on August 7, examines relaxation, meditation, and connection on the path to spiritual transformation.

The Heartfulness Way chronicles the conversations, over a two-year period, of a student and his spiritual teacher, Kamlesh D Patel – widely known as Daaji.

Heartfulness is an ideal, a spiritual way of living by and from the heart that is inclusive of all ideologies, beliefs, and religions. It offers a unique method of meditation with the power to facilitate an immediate, tangible spiritual experience, irrespective of your faith.

In this book, student Joshua Pollock is in conversation with his teacher. Based on Daaji’s own combination of approaches and practices for the modern spiritual seeker we find a contemporised version of the ancient Indian practise of Raja Yoga, a tradition that enables the practitioner to realise the divine self within. The Heartfulness Way provides a pragmatic course to experience refined states of consciousness – enlightenment – and connection to a higher self – nirvana.

Heartfulness meditation consists of four elements – relaxation, meditation, rejuvenation, and connection, illuminating the ancient, defining feature of yogic transmission, the utilisation of divine energy for spiritual growth and transformation. Using the methods, detailed practices, tips and practical philosophy offered in the book, the reader will reach new levels of attainment and learn to live a life more deeply connected to the value of the Heartfulness way.
