Woodstock, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/04/2014 -- Humanity’s harmony and balance often depends on the strengths of each individual’s relationships. Internationally-renowned Vedanta teacher, Shubhraji, has travelled the world to help people overcome their relationship challenges and seek out the change they crave.
In her new book ‘In the Lotus of the Heart – The Essence of Relationships’, Shubhraji draws on her unique perspective of non-duality, and brings profound insights to her teachings on expectations, fears and insecurities, the power of observation, open listening, wise speech, conflict resolution, and much more.
Do you yearn to become a more loving partner? Are you in a relationship you would like to transform? Are you searching for better way to handle conflict? Vedanta teacher Shubhraji was moved to write In the Lotus of the Heart: The Essence of Relationships because, in her words, "people everywhere talk to me about the same relationship issues. Many feel lonely; often they're cut off from loved ones because of seemingly unresolvable conflicts or communication problems, or they suffer in stale, loveless, or even abusive relationships."
Accessible and practical, In the Lotus of the Heart illuminates how to connect more deeply with our beloveds, parents, children, friends, and co-workers and reveals how relationships help neutralize the effects of past conditioning. Using familiar examples, Shubhraji illuminates how our outer conflicts reflect our inner struggles and why resolving these struggles can propel us toward harmonious relations with others. In the Lotus of the Heart reminds us that we start with ourselves, for that is where we find our wholeness, perfection, and innate capacity to love.
“Regardless of nationality, people everywhere talk to me about the same relationship issues. Everyone shares a desire for loving, fulfilling relationships and wants to learn ways of relating more skillfully to others. We crave connection, desiring to be seen and valued for who we are and held in a supportive web of community,” explains Shubhraji.
Continuing, “’In the Lotus of the Heart’ was written as a response to these conversations. Replete with hands-on exercises at the end of each chapter, the book shows us how we can transform the patterns that block love. Shubhraji also illuminates how our outer conflicts reflect our inner struggles and why resolving these struggles can propel us toward harmonious relations with others. Written for all kinds of relationships—not just those that are romantic—the book offers a way to reconnect with our authentic self: our source of love, joy, and peace.”
Early praise for the book has been overwhelmingly positive. Actor Boman Irani comments, “Shubhraji examines the web of relationships in simple and effective ways, giving insightful tools to the reader that benefit every complex sphere of relationship within the world. I highly recommend this book; it is a wonderful lens on the core issues in relationships.”
Author Arielle Ford adds, “A deep, wise, and wonderful exploration of the Vedanta path for relationships both with yourself and with others. In this book, Shubhraji provides everything you need to create healthy, fulfilling relationships, using ancient wisdom, beautiful stories, tools, and exercises. This book is a must read for those on a serious spiritual journey."
