Yoga of the Subtle Body
If you spend considerable time doing yoga, you begin to see that it is about much more than just the body—the practice of yoga in fact reveals that the body is in no way separate from the pyschospiritual forces that animate it. Tias Little here provides a way to understand these forces as they relate to an integrated yoga of body, mind, and spirit. He unites somatic concepts and wisdom teachings in this practical guide to the anatomy of the physical, mental, emotional, and subtle (or energetic) body. You can purchase Yoga of the Subtle Body at Shambhala.com.
Meditations on a Dew Drop
Poems and Teachings on the Flow of Presence.
One of the most celebrated metaphors in the mind training practices of yoga and meditation is the dew drop. The dew drop captures the short-lived, here today and gone tomorrow nature of being. At the same time, it is a symbol, particularly in the Zen tradition, for the reflective mind. The dew drops are invitations for us to live in the present and to celebrate the passing of moments every day. Through ancient and contemporary reflections on being with change, this book inspires us to appreciate our dew drop moments for all their tenuousness, raw beauty and fragility.
The Thread of Breath
All the forms of meditation–all the asanas– are woven together by the breath the way a weaver binds together threads on a loom. The breath not only links postures together, as in Vinyasa Yoga, but it is the life force, called prana, that animates.
