New book unites soul and spirit in everyday life

Thomas Moore writes the foreword to Hari Kirin Kaur Khalsa's Art and Yoga: Kundalini Awakening in Everyday Life, published by Kundalini Research Institute, to be available Summer, 2011. His foreword includes:
"Artists are genuine creators, giving us bodies and landscapes and objects. They populate our imaginations with figures that live as presences in our lives that affect us and instruct us. The soul is hungry for images and, in fact, lives on them the way we live on food. We can never have enough images...

I’ve been waiting for this book for a long time. It represents a shift that I hope will become more evident as our new century progresses: a shift from separating matters of soul and spirit — images and practice, the poetic and the well defined, the intuitive and the carefully reasoned — to uniting them... When soul and spirit come together, there is a great healing. These two dimensions, like yin and yang, are the building blocks, the essential dynamics, in everything that is tangible and alive."
