Description

A practical guide to simple daily techniques for rapid spiritual progress

Enlightenment means becoming a light unto yourself. But how does one get on the path to enlightenment? In this practical spiritual guide, Simon Chokoisky shares 11 time-tested yet simple daily techniques to help you find your spiritual path, or "dharma," no matter what your spiritual background--be it Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, or Agnostic. He explains how everyone has a unique learning style as well as a spiritual style--your "Dharma type"--and how the Dharma method allows you to pick any seven of the 11 methods described in the book to practice. You can even change them daily, all based on your unique needs. And by holding to the 7/11 "rule" daily, you'll soon find yourself on the road to rapid spiritual progress and personal enlightenment.

In this book, the author explains how he distilled these 11 spiritual techniques from centuries of methods used by spiritual masters from around the world. He details the 5 different Dharma types and provides personality tests to determine your type. He provides routines, tips, and tricks to keep you on track as well as thoughtful exercises to help you apply spiritual principles in your everyday life.

Showing how spirituality is inherent in each of us and is abundant, free, and easy to cultivate, the author reveals how you can best cultivate your spiritual light and share it with the world.

Review quote

"Author Simon Chokoisky says in his preface that the working title for The Dharma Method was 'The Lazy Person's Guide to Enlightenment.' So what, exactly, is this book offering help with? Basically, mindfulness. This is the mindfulness guide for people who don't want to hear about angels, chakras, or vibration levels. There is, as you might imagine, a chapter devoted to each of the 11 suggested practices to guide novitiates in their use, but they are all more practical than philosophical. I consider this a recommended read if you are a practical minded reader who finds many similar books too fluffy to make it through." * Patricia Mullen, FacingNorth.net * "What a wonderful book! The Dharma Method explains sacred spiritual teachings in a way that's concise and digestible. It is loaded with really useful reference material and practical things you can do to reach your spiritual goal." * Darren Cockburn, author of Being Present * "Written in an easy, conversational tone, The Dharma Method succeeds in breaking down a complex subject and updates ancient wisdom for the modern world. Chokoisky has written a wonderful primer for those seeking fundamental principles and practices of the spiritual path." * Mary Mueller Shutan, L.Ac., author of The Body Deva * "An exceptional book, it is both deeply traditional and surprisingly refreshing and innovative. With an impressive command of Vedic knowledge, Chokoisky reveals the essence of dharma and confidently walks the reader through its full realization within a Western lifestyle. All this in an entertaining, uplifting, and effortlessly brilliant tone." * Shai Tubali, author of Unlocking the 7 Secret Powers of the Heart * "With wit and clarity Chokoisky transforms Vedic teachings into this relevant, helpful guide for living a more sacred life. This book is the perfect companion for anyone on the path of self-awareness and healing." * Bridgette Shea, L.Ac., MAcOM, author of Handbook of Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda *
