A leading scholar of ascetical studies, Richard Valantasis explores a variety of ascetical traditions ranging from the Greco-Roman philosophy of Musonius Rufus, the asceticism found in the Nag Hammadi Library and in certain Gnostic texts, the Gospel of Thomas, and other early Christian texts. This collection gathers historical and theoretical essays that develop a theory of asceticism that informs the analysis of historical texts and opens the way for postmodern ascetical studies. Wide-ranging in historical scope and in developing theory, these essays address asceticism for scholar and student alike. The theory will be of particular interest to those interested in cultural theory and analysis, while the historical essays provide the researcher with easy access to a significant corpus of academic writing on asceticism.

Author: Rita Ann Shankara
Raw, engaging, and described by her teacher as "one who makes bubbles of joy," Rita shares her lustrous journey through the fires of divorce, motherhood, and a series of romantic lilas (divine plays). Determined to heal herself, she takes a disciplined dive into Yogic spiritual practices while working closely with an American spiritual teacher. Eventually she bows at the Feet of her Gurus, Ammachi and Neem Karoli Baba, in a true surrender that spurs a radical transformation: from a girl long suffering with an addictive love pattern to a self-fulfilling woman of Bliss. This kind of remarkable change is not only astounding and awe-inspiring, but it is possible for anyone.

We can all learn from the humble lotus flower. It grows in mud and yet never lets this humble origin keep it from enjoying the full radiance of the sun. It never lets anything get in the way of its potential or its true beauty. For this reason, the lotus is a symbol of enlightenment. Like the lotus, we all have within ourselves the power to make the most of each moment. We begin to realize our true potential in the moment we choose to break free of the “mud” that would keep us trapped and limited. When we embrace our sheer potential, we stand grounded to the earth, deep in mud, ever looking to the sky. In this guide, yoga teacher Enza DeLuca shares her inspiring approach to life’s challenges and opportunities. She believes that we each have unlimited potential beauty within us and that our radiance is blocked only by our own limiting thoughts, beliefs, words, and actions. She seeks to inspire readers to love the body they have. By harnessing the power of the Law of Attraction, you can manifest the body that your heart desires. There are many paths on the journey to realising your inner beauty. Everyone has an individual path on this planet. Each journey begins with a single powerful moment of intent, and Enza invites you on the journey of a lifetime. Let your individual beauty shine.
