Pharmacy for the Soul is a valuable resource book full of more than 100 simple techniques to deal with everything from insomnia to relationship problems. Selected from unpublished Darshan Diary records, the material in the book is an accessible, intimate, and essential guide to coping with the stresses of modern-day living. Organized in a user-friendly format and addressing issues such as relieving stress and physical tension, building self-confidence, enhancing emotional and physical vitality, mood swings, sexuality and diet, Pharmacy for the Soul has been compiled from transcripts of Osho's one-on-one talks with people of all ages and backgrounds from around the world. Each section of the book begins with a description and diagnosis of an emotional or physical problem, and then lists a number of prescriptions. Arranged by ailment and area of the body, remedies include stretching techniques, meditations, laughter and breathing exercises, vocalizations, visualizations, massage and meditations. Practical suggestions for dealing with everything from nailbiting to loneliness, from sleeplessness to feeling spaced out are offered in these pages with illuminating insight, humor and compassion.
