Awakening of the Chakras and Emancipation
In this fascinating book, Hiroshi Motoyama describes his unique model of mind/body interactions. In addition, he describes a number of meditation and Yoga exercises that can help his readers awaken their “chakras”, the body’s ”circles of light”.
Motoyama is to be commended for taking a strong ethical stance, urging caution when working toward “emancipation” and stressing the need for “balance”. His familiarity with a multitude of wisdom traditions has resulted in a profound book that will be great benefit to many people who are seeking earnestly for meaning in their lives.

A Shinto priest, a scholar in philosophy familiar with eastern and western thought, a specialist in the psychology of religion, an inventor and an institution builder, Hiroshi Motoyama brings together in this volume his multiple expertise for understanding the nature of chakras and their role in the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of our beings. Written with the authority of personal experience, both as a practicing yogin and as an experimenting scientist, Awaking of the Chakras and Emancipation contains Motoyama’s recipe for personal growth, transformation and liberation, on the one hand, and for global well-being and a conflict-free society, on the other. This is a book that would be of interest to all spiritually oriented persons seeking freedom from the limitations of self-driven existence through sustained practice of the profound wisdom passed on to us from the seers of the past and the present.
