Anna has recently self-published her first book: ‘Mindfulness in the Raja Sutras’, A simple guide to understanding the mind during meditation practice. It is available to order on Amazon in printed form, and very soon on kindle. She has taken the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and applied the view-point of a mindfulness instructor and westerner in her interpretations. Anna has admired and studied these essential yoga philosophies for over forty years. The book is aptly illustrated with her own visual work throughout. Also included, are some breath-taking colourful photographs which capture the essence of the many pilgrimages she ventured into the Himalayas of Northern India.
A really enjoyable conversation with Anna where we spoke about many different topics including – what consciousness means for her; the power of mindfulness and realising ‘we are not our mind’; as well as learning about some of the key philosophies in Traditional Chinese Medicine and why free flowing energy through the body/mind is pivotal for good health and harmony within the body.
