This book explores the fundamental concept of prana, or "life energy," from the perspective of the ancient Indian spiritual tradition of Vedanta. As the ancient sages described it, this fundamental force is what gives us life and keeps us alive. It's physical, creative, mental, emotional, and sexual energy, it's the "get up and go," it's physical vitality as well as star power and mojo. Since ancient times, it's been known that harnessing this fundamental energy of life itself is the key to thriving. In this book, Rajshree Patel explores what this energy is, how to enhance it, and how it gets drained (spoiler- the biggest energy hog of all is your own mind!). The book market is saturated with guides to living a better life using techniques such as mindfulness, stress reduction, and emotional intelligence-but many of these titles draw on the same studies and offer the same tips and tools. This book offers a much-needed new approach to managing our mind, regulating our emotions, and increasing vital energy. In these pages we find a fresh set of tools drawn from some of the world's most ancient wisdom to help us harness the power of pure energy. Patel, a senior teacher with the Art of Living Foundation-the largest organization in the world dedicated to teaching spiritual wisdom and practice in the Vedic tradition-shares easy, accessible techniques ranging from breathwork to nutrition to a cold-water foot bath that instantly shifts energy flow, all designed to reset and rejuvenate our systems for maximum life force. Ultimately, the less energy we have, the less we are alive; the more energy we have, the more we thrive-in whatever we are doing, in every part of our lives. Vital Force combines ancient wisdom with the principles of psychology, self-help, and business, offering a fresh approach to happiness and success.

The book you're holding in your hands right now contains an incredible distillation of what you might learn through years of studying many different Eastern traditions. But the single most precious thing you will get out of reading it is the knowledge that unconscious mental resistance and struggle makes everything you do harder than it needs to be.
