Will I Be the Hero of my Own Life


by Swami Chetanananda

This book addresses the question at the heart of any authentic spiritual discipline. Drawing from the Bhagavad Gita, mystical poetry, and art, Swami Chetanananda explores the criteria for becoming a hero. On this journey you may pass through the darkest places in your mind and confront your deepest fears, but it also promises the possibility of profound freedom and a life lived in the spirit of creativity, integration, and happiness.

"... [This book] offers with great clarity and sensitivity an invaluable understanding of the process by which the hero in each of us is born." --Michael Gerber, author of The E-Myth

"There is fire in Chetanananda's eloquence; his book merits a wide and appreciative audience."--Colette Inez, lecturer in Poetry, Columbia University

Swami Chetanananda is a master of Trika Yoga practice and a teacher in the lineage of Bhagavan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri. He is the abbot and spiritual director of The Movement Center, based in Portland, Oregon.

Swamiji works with students to awaken their creative energy and support them in the process of its unfoldment. He teaches Dynamic Stillness practice, a direct transmission meditation in which teacher and student share the experience of the underlying unity of all things.

Swamiji has a profound grasp of Kashmir Shaivism and the other philosophical and practice traditions he has studied. He conveys their essence in direct and accessible terms, making them relevant to everyday circumstances. He offers simple, practical techniques for working with creative energy that can be practiced by anyone. The fundamental method uses the power of the breath to circulate the creative energy (kundalini) and intensify its flow so that tensions and obstacles are dissolved, leading to a more refined awareness.
