The Truth about Breathing

By Konstantin Pavlovich Buteyko "I became a real doctor when I was a third-year student and spent long hours in front of patients- beds trying to unravel the great mystery of death.

They state that there are two types of "chi": internal and external, and the objective is to awaken and increase the inner one rathe...

Ok I got this one covered- 1) As always, the problem is fear. 2) Fear comes from attachment. If you are attached to a certain outcome, you can't accept that things might not go "your way". That will make you frantic. The answer to this problem is, the same answer you would give to a man holding on t...

Being in the Now VS Hypnosis

Negative reviews on amazon

For some reason in the last week or so there's been a spate of 1 star reviews for PON, which is a shame as it could put alot of people off reading the book.
