7 Part Set for Addictions, Eating Disorders, and Compulsive Behavior

I came across this set  in a text that described the set but didn’t include instructions for people to do the exercises, so I collected previously published instructions for each exercise where possible, and added new photos and text where I couldn’t find the instructions.

Update, January 2015:
I received the following threat from the author of the book, so have removed it. I still have to run across anyone else who’s done the set. The book isn’t written as a manual, so that’s probably the real problem. My recollection was that it had more of a clinical orientation.

Mr. Arthur O. Kegerreis,
Today I noticed your link below and your post to your blog with my copyright-protected 7-part specific sequence using Kundalini yoga meditation (“Treating the Addictive, Impulse Control, and Eating Disorders). This is a strict violation of my copyrights, with the copyrights clearly stated in both of the W. W. Norton & Co., Inc. books where I have this published, and no doubt where you obtained the material. It does not matter if you use your own pictures and wording. You are still violating the copyright by republishing the sequence. I hope you are aware of that. I pursue all people with my attorney when my copyrights are violated. I am requesting that you take this down immediately. If you do not, I will pursue you legally for financial damages and the violation of my copyrights. 

Sincerely,
David Shannahoff-Khalsa

Update, May 2014: A couple of people have asked what the exact title of the book this came from is. I first found it at Golden Bridge Yoga, but didn’t see it today when I returned to get the details. Golden Bridge has scaled down their bookstore significantly since their relocation. After a bit of web sleuthing, I’m pretty sure I originally found the set in “Kundalini Yoga Meditation: Techniques Specific for Psychiatric Disorders, Couples Therapy, and Personal Growth” (Hardcover) by David Shannahoff-Khalsa.

The book didn’t include diagrams for the set, so I put the pdf download together myself, as most of the postures, mudras, and short kriyas that comprise it are available in other manuals. I tried to match the typography style of other similar manuals as well. I’ll have to update the title page to credit the authors of the book and manuals.

    Could you please tell me where you found part #7 of the 7 Part Set for Addictions?
    I can’t seem to find it on the net, so maybe is has a different name than “Meditation for treating impulsive behavior”.

    Blessings,
    Siri Sant
