Books

Embodying Well-Being (2007)
This book is an introduction to the simplest and most playful ways of restoring well-being. Many of them are recognizable from childhood play. That is because this level of care for ourselves is inherent in how we function. They are simple, and they work. Beyond these most basic and effective tools for being kind to ourselves, this book offers a glimpse toward some very high peaks of perception indeed. (Also available from Pete & Vas in Australia and directly from the publisher of the German edition.)  Read a little…

The Hum Book (2003)
Surprise, this book is entirely about humming! How to hum more “inside” than “outside”; how to touch deep inside yourself with the pulse of the hum; how to increase our intrinsic well-being by humming. Human beings often express envy of cats’ ability to purr. I am going to guess that the sort of humming we talking about here is going to provide many of the benefits that cats get out of purring. These benefits, as it turns out, are simple, deep and easily accessible with just a little practice. And this book is a simple, deep and easy place to start.  Read a little…

The Lover Within (1999)
If you have ever felt energy from a person or a situation, this book will reassure you that you are not crazy. This exploration of energy and sexuality teaches how to develop energetic skills (perceiving energy and energetic exchange) in any relationship (sexual or not), including your relationship with yourself. In seventy-eight exercises that you can practice alone or with others, Julie gives us the basics of a tantra adapted to the West. She teaches how to create boundaries and how to merge. She talks about bad energetic habits — compression, diffusion, disappearance — and how to replace them with other habits that allow you to pulse and live as an energetic being.

The Somatic I Ching: Revealing Story, Training Mind (March 2012)
The purpose of this — yet another!!! — version of I Ching is to direct your attention to the language of movement itself and to give some hints on how to approach any verbal version of the language of change, without being either too rigid or too self-indulgent.
$35 US / $38 International
