Summary

How do we co-create safer yoga and spiritual communities?
Through dogged investigative work, careful listening to survivor stories of assault and abuse, and close analysis of the cultic mechanisms at play in the sphere of Pattabhi Jois’s Ashtanga community, Matthew Remski’s Practice and All Is Coming offers a sober view into a collective and intergenerational trauma.
It also offers a clear pathway forward into enhanced critical thinking, student empowerment, self-and-other care, and community resilience.
Concluding with practical tools for a world rocked by abuse revelations, Practice and All Is Coming opens a window on the possibility of healing— and even re-enchantment.

While Mathew Remski is the courageous, insightful, and compassionate author of this informative, challenging, and thought-provoking book, this book is clearly a group effort. Equal parts theory, training manual, expose, and memoir, Practice and All is Coming ... is a foray into the difficult topics of personal agency, spirituality authority, and cult dynamics. In addition to his clearly articulated understanding of the problems inherent in many spiritual schools, Mathew provides hope for healing the confusion and anguish that arise in the heart of sincere practitioners when they are betrayed by the revered powers in which they have placed their trust. If you practice or teach yoga, please consider this book an essential companion on your path.

    Men, Don't Be Nervous or Shy. Your Eyes Is the Unknown Magic of Developing Unstoppable Confidence Around Women
     
    This book will turn you from that shy guy who rarely makes eye contact to the Swift who makes elders nervous by looking them straight in the eye until they become the first to look away.
     
    Confidence is a sexy skill and clothes to wear. A man with it is a man with a brighter future. To some, confidence is natural, but to most, it must be learned.
     
    The easiest way to develop your confidence is by mastering the eyes and putting yourself in the real world. This book can be finished in few minutes.
     
    It has the only secret you need to develop a magnetic personality with your eyes alone. When you look someone dead in the eye, you’ll appear confident in the receiver’s eyes.
     
    He or she will become shy, nervous, or will be wondering what is going on. Now, adding a smile or a wink will ease them into knowing you’re flirting with their brains.
     
    What else is sexier than a confident man or woman? Even Mark Twain was always nervous just like most people. When giving a speech, he couldn’t look people in the eye too.
     
    He learned it the hard way, but here, we are to make things easy for you. If someone had introduced this to him, it would have been an easy road.
     
    You’re at luck to have this secret in the open. At the end of this three-chapter book, you’ll learn Intense Eye Contact, Magnetic Left Eye Wink, and The Blurry Eye to set you apart from the rest of the men and women of this world.
     
    By this time tomorrow or next week, you’ll testify the same good testimony as Mr. Swift did in this book. He testified how powerful this system is.
     
    How he does it to elderly ones everywhere he goes. Put a smile on your face as you read and practice this simple trick. In fact, it’s not a trick, but a life and confidence building weapon. ALL MEN MUST KNOW THIS.
     
    Before you purchase this book, it's good to know what is inside this book works—guaranteed!
     
    Would you rather handle this now or keep using drugs or alcohol to boost your confidence around women?

    A revolutionary, personalized guide to preventing heart disease—America’s #1 killer
    
    Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in America. It affects 81 million Americans and is the culprit in one of every two deaths in the United States. Most people think that they are not at risk of a heart attack if they control their cholesterol and blood pressure, but they aren’t aware of other major risk factors. The good news is that with the right information and strategies, heart attacks are preventable—even if heart disease runs in the family.

In Beat the Heart Attack Gene, world-renowned cardiovascular specialists Bradley Bale, MD and Amy Doneen, ARNP, present a new model for understanding and preventing heart disease. They explain the three different genetic types of cholesterol profiles and tailor treatments for each type, using their cutting-edge Bale/Doneen Method, a comprehensive, evidence-based medical treatment plan that detects cardiovascular disease (CVD) at early stages and stabilizes it with individualized medical and lifestyle therapy. Beat the Heart Attack Gene includes easy quizzes and self-tests that show how to determine cholesterol genotype as well as advice for how to apply that knowledge through and individualized lifestyle advice. For heart attack and stroke survivors, the Bale/Doneen Method also helps prevent recurrences by identifying and treating what's triggering the patient's disease—a crucial step that many cardiologists neglect.

With their proven method utilized by healthcare professionals worldwide, Bale and Doneen empower readers by alerting them to potential health threats, and then offer personalized strategies so they can live healthy, active lives without fear of heart attack or stroke. Specifically, Beat the Heart Attack Gene addresses:

*The hidden cause of most heart attacks
*Early prevention methods
*The dangerous cholesterol most doctors don’t check
*Major red flags for heart attack and stroke risk, including gum disease
*The genes that increase cardiovascular risk as much as smoking
*The best and worst supplements and foods for your heart
*10 surprising ways to prevent heart attacks

    Do You Make These MISTAKES with Women and End Up Being REJECTED or FRIEND-ZONED? Are you finding it difficult to get a woman to fall madly in love with you? Your final and permanent solution (all nice guys and most alpha males don’t know) is here—100% GUARANTEED!
     
    It's sad, but I'm glad it happened...
     
    My heart is heavy to share this story—it’s embarrassing and I don’t want you to laugh yet. Listen, if I count how many times I have been friend-zoned, you’ll feel depressed on my behalf.
     
    The last one was many years ago when I was studying in Singapore. The next day, after my heartbreak, my roommate, Michael, called me and said, “Barack Obama is around. He’s at Orchard to meet with Lee Kuan Yew—come, come, come.”
     
    Michael didn’t know what I was going through. He was at Orchard having fun, but I was at home feeling heartbroken and Obama wasn’t the solution I needed at that moment—I needed a relationship expert.
     
    Luckily, I have become that person I needed and I’ll guide you through the ups and downs of how women work, how to get any woman without being friend-zoned and many more things acclaimed dating gurus won't tell you.
     
    In all things, honesty and foundation are key, and that’s how we’ll start. Skip this stage and you'll be in trouble...
     
    You’ve been lied to by dating gurus. Listen, my case was worse than yours. I thought it was because I came from a not-so-rich family or because I wasn’t too tall and handsome.
     
    The truth is: I was in my head. I was the one killing myself—just the same way you’re mentally sabotaging yourself without knowing.
     
    I wish someone had told me all the things I discovered throughout my struggles in understanding women—it would’ve saved me time and energy.
     
    Imagine the shame and pains you feel emotionally, but you have no one to run to for help except Google, yet there are too many inaccurate info by "acclaimed gurus" trying to fill your brain with pickup lines.
     
    Sometimes, you feel resentful towards women because they either rejected or friend-zoned you. This makes you feel undesirable and angry.
     
    From today, things will forever change for you with the info you'll discover soon. After learning these secrets, don't revenge women—forgive them, but flaunt your newly found confidence and skills.
     
    At the end of this series, you'll solve all your relationship and bedroom problems: 
     
    * You'll make her fall madly in love with you with the secrets inside this series even if you think you are not handsome, tall, rich, or intelligent
     
    * All the time you spent being lonely and masturbating all night will now be spent with a real beautiful woman
     
    * You'll finally become confident around women and be the one to choose any lady you want to be your girlfriend or wife
     
    * You'll never go through heartbreak again. You know how heartbreak sucks, right?
     
    * Your friends will wonder how you get beautiful women easily
     
    * You'll soon teach your nice guys' friends how to do it and even charge them money for it because the knowledge is worth paying any amount to acquire 
     
    "I can't believe it" was the exact line one of our students used after 2 days of applying the technique.
     
    Let me make it clear before you purchase this book. What is inside this book will transform your life — guaranteed!
     
    Would you rather have this handled now or keep wasting time for the rest of your life?
     
    This is the best relationship investment you'll ever make, so go ahead to get the success you've always wanted with beautiful women.

    MEN: If You Want to Naturally Last as Long as You Want in Bed Without Drugs and Permanently Cure Premature Ejaculation in No Time, Then This Is All You’ll Ever Need – Guaranteed! 
     
    Calm down and put a smile on your face. You are not the only one. I know “exactly” what you’re going through and this book is 100% the cure with a solid guarantee. Don’t worry, be happy. You’ll see for yourself soon.
     
    The day I smooched a girl, I ejaculated in my pants in less than 69 seconds. That day was one of my worst days and I vowed to handle this part of my life once and for all. I was so embarrassed.
     
    I'll save you from your bedroom depression and frustration.
     
    Investing in your sex life is an investment for your future. Some people will discourage you by saying, "Make money first, or go to school first."
     
    Both are good advice, but your ego will be shattered when you suck with women in general and mostly in bed.
     
    You will be tired of tramadol, alcohol, Viagra, marijuana, cocaine, codeine, or any other substances you believe in. Remember, most of them have side effects.
     
    Why not acquire these skills naturally? One day, you'll travel abroad and may not get your local enhancer there.
     
    Think of the money you waste on paying for sex with women just to get in their panties or get them to love you.
     
    Or, the money you spend on buying sexual enhancers and substances. Calculate the money for a year and you’ll see how much you’ve been wasting.
    
     
    When you have this skill,
     
    * The table will turn
     
    * Women will be the ones spending on you just to have a taste.
     
    Lasting long enough to make a woman have an orgasm or squirt is more gratifying than being in the office.
    
     
    When your woman is satisfied,
     
    * You will feel great about yourself and
     
    * You will do things you have never done before with joy
     
    * It will boost your confidence.
     
    Who doesn't want to last longer in bed? All men want to be the men who always rock their women at any given time.
     
    If you cannot last long enough for your woman to reach an orgasm and fulfill her sexual needs, then she'll find it somewhere else, and you know what that means?
    
     
    So, do all your learning now. With Lasticle:
     
    * You'll start making fun of men who use Viagra
     
    * Or other sex-enhancing substances to boost their performances
     
    * You'll become one of those men who will NEVER need an enhancer to last long
     
    * Your eyes will open to sexual realities.
     
    It's not easy, but it's achievable if you put your heart to it. We have trained lots of men who didn’t believe they could do it.
     
    The end of your premature ejaculation is here and do not miss the opportunity of being the man every woman wants to sleep with or at least, fantasize about.
     
    Be careful, this book will forever change your sex life for good. Your confidence and composure around women will skyrocket to another level.
     
    At the end of this Lasticle book, I promise, you will be confident in anything regarding lasting as long as you want in bed and in turn, unimaginably satisfy your woman.
     
    Before you purchase this book, it's good to know what is inside this book is the only permanent solution on earth and it works—guaranteed!
     
    Would you rather have this handled now or keep wasting money on sex drugs for the rest of your life? This is the best material you'll ever read on this topic. I kid you not. You'll smile at last and finally say, "Why haven't I read this book all these while?"
