Summary

A special 25th anniversary edition of the extraordinary international bestseller, including a new Foreword by Paulo Coelho. 
Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations. 
Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.

    We all have desires - goals in our lives that we would like to achieve. In practice, however, implementation is not always easy. How can we make concrete, perhaps not always simple changes in our lives without this degenerating into a struggle with our inner resistances? Yoga meditation offers a possible answer: Sankalpa. This form of exercise, which can easily be combined with all meditation techniques and yoga Nidra, offers promising effects for our personal development. Deepen your understanding of what is really important to you in your life, learn more about how to use the Sankalpa as an old yogic technique to get there as effortlessly as possible - and get the practical tools to really do it! 
     
    This manual contains all the information found in Switzerland-based meditation teacher Andreas Ziörjen's well-received Sankalpa course and Sankalpa meditations (available online) - but in addition to that you'll find a lot of valuable new material, including 150 concrete positive impulses that can serve as a basis for Sankalpa formulations or as an inspiring meditation focus.
     
    Andreas Ziörjen is the author of several books on meditation, yoga philosophy and deep relaxation, including “On how to Become your Own Guru”, an in-depth exploration on the tantric principles of all meditative paths and the worth of non-dogmatic spirituality. For more than twenty years he has been intensively engaged in yoga, meditation and new spirituality. In his work as a seminar leader and therapist, he is particularly interested in the transfer of spirituality into everyday life and the development of a new view of success and self-love beyond performance and self-optimization.
     
    His main practice is Yoga-Nidra, in which Sankalpa plays an important role. For many years Andreas has also been involved with Ho'oponopono, the path of forgiveness and inner peace originally from Hawaii, in which the conscious handling of thoughts and intentions ("Mana Mana") also is of central significance.
