“A few years into my career as a medical doctor, I started to notice an alarming trend. Passionate people, who were making a difference in the world, entrepreneurs, human rights activists, NGO and health care workers, change makers, visionaries and artists, moms staying at home to raise future fit children were starting to lose their fire. They were burning out. And it was showing up in all kinds of ways, emotionally, physiologically, in their relationships and at work. Burnout didn’t happen suddenly, it kind of crept up on them and before they knew it, they felt disconnected from the passion that had defined them.” – Dr Ela Manga
We are facing a global personal and collective energy crisis. Being busy and exhausted is becoming a shared narrative of modern living. Energy is not just an expression of our physical health, but also of our mental and emotional functioning. The nature of digitally based modern lives means that our natural energy sources are constantly being tugged at and pulled on. The skill we require now is no longer balance, but rather integration. This requires an awareness of the natural laws that govern energy and ways we can harness stress in a positive way, at the same time staying centred in midst of chaos.
This book is about bringing awareness to the basic laws and principles of energy by weaving together the science of western medicine, neuroscience, and eastern philosophy. It is the crystallisation of Dr Ela Manga’s experience and insights gained in the cutting-edge science of mindfulness-based energy management. It is relevant for anyone who faces the challenge of supporting health and meaningful relationships while pursuing their passion and vocation.
