How can we live a balanced life in unbalanced times? How can the practices of meditation and yoga support our relationships, our work lives, and the greater good? Author, teacher, and psychotherapist Michael Stone presents the essential insights of mindfulness and yoga, emphasizing the teachings of simplicity and the interdependence of all life.

Stone explains that the practices of yoga and meditation are not about escaping reality but about living fully in the here and now, opening to our experience, and gaining access to stillness within the flow of life. The essence of yoga and Buddhist practice is opening the heart—our own and the heart of the world. With that awareness, Stone encourages us to get involved in our communities, to speak out when we see wrongdoing, and to find ways of helping others.

Review:

“Just as yoga postures open the body, these essays awaken the mind, revealing, in elegant and lyrical prose, our unbreakable connection to every part of this ailing world.”—Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine

“Michael Stone’s practice combines a host of disciplines and trainings, from yoga to Buddhism to psychotherapy to postmodern cultural studies. He has written a deft and lively book that has an impressive range and intelligence.”—Norman Fischer, author of Taking Our Places and Sailing Home

“Whether at the farmers’ market in New York City’s Union Square, on a snowy retreat in Northern Ontario, inside a Zen poem or yogic text, or talking about money as a spiritual practice, traveling with Stone refreshes and inspires, and like any good journey, brings us right back home—in the body, in the world.”—Inquiring Mind
