More Esoteric Anatomy

Toroidal Energies and the Human Body
Dr. Randolph Stone
A couple of years ago I posted an article about Bruce Burger's book, Esoteric Anatomy: The Body As Consciousness. At that time I had just begun reading the book, and I promised a more complete review at a later date.

This is a great book. If you are investigating toroidal energy and the conscious universe, you really should read Esoteric Anatomy. The term "Esoteric Anatomy" refers to the body's toroidal energy lines (pictured above) and their effect on the body. The book is divided into two parts--philosophy and application. In the first section, "Loving Hands Are Healing Hands," Burger presents a hands-on therapy approach called Polarity Therapy that describes in detail how to locate and complete toroidal circuits throughout the body for both physical and mental health. In the second half of the book, "Essays on Esoteric Anatomy," Burger gives a thorough explanation of the ancient Sanatana Dharma, which forms the primary philosophy underlying Polarity Therapy. You really can't find a better grounding in primary yogic philosophy than these essays. 

Polarity Therapy was originally developed by Dr. Randolph Stone in a series of books published in the 1950's. Dr. Stone's understanding of Ayurveda, Naturopathy, Osteopathy, Craniosacral Therapy, Hermetic philosphy, and physics, blended with fifty years of experience as a Doctor of Chiropractic and Osteopathy, informed his understanding of the human body and its place in the cosmos. He is considered "the father of energetic studies."
