Writing has allowed me to share the gentle Truth I live and teach. It is amongst the most powerful, transformational and self developmental communication tools off the mat. Books such as ‘Intimacy, Love, Transformation’ can literally change the way an experience is held within an overall story in a reader’s life. This is why, after writing books too numerous to count, I am as excited now, as ever, to begin a new project as I was when I first started. Please accept this offering, read and enjoy. With love and blessings, Shantiji.
Testimonial by Helen Selmeczy
This book, ‘Intimacy, Love, Transformation’ by Shanti Gowans, a highly acclaimed teacher of living yoga and a meditation master, provides a holistic, practical application of spiritual principles, for guidance in your intimate and closest relationships.
Intimacy involves the deepening of our relationships and our vocabulary for unconditional love. Love involves unconditional acceptance of life as it is, in the present moment and the nurturing of happiness, joy and peace in all relationships. Transformation is the process of continual change as the spirit of love seeks form along the evolutionary pathway of human consciousness towards self-realisation – the direct awareness of our inherent nature (the Self) as unconditional love. Wise parenting involves the nurturing of ‘the spirit child’ in ourselves, our partner and our family through the release of the unconditional love that radiates from the core of our Being. Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda provide us with deep and powerful practices that can lay the foundations for successful transformation. The invitation from Shantiji is to use the inspiration, intelligence and energy in this book as a catalyst for our own journey toward Self-realisation through intimacy, love and transformation.
