AWAKE IN THE WORLD: Teachings from Yoga & Buddhism
for Living an Engaged Life by Michael Stone
In this collection of writings, Michael Stone teaches the essentials of mindfulness and yoga practice, combining simplicity with the notion of interdependence of all beings. Regarding yoga practice, he emphasizes that yoga is not about some ultimate reality but about the here and now; it's about the way things unfold in each moment. With that awareness, the practitioner opens to a still calm at the root of all experience. This state is a glimpse of freedom from dissatisfaction and craving.
