Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The true path of yoga calls for a commitment to social responsibility in addition to ones personal practice on the mathere is a fresh viewpoint from a psychologist and teacher of yoga and meditation.

Yoga practitioners are increasingly looking to deepen and expand their practice in the areas of environmental awareness and social responsibility. Yoga magazines are featuring articles on subjects from fighting poverty to going green. In response to this need, this book shows how the yoga tradition offers a greater path to being a responsible member of the global community.

With simplicity and clarity, Stone offers these ancient instructions for understanding the broad effects of our actions, and for avoiding getting caught up in habitual distraction and emotional reactivity. He gives practical ways to instead cultivate compassion, insight, and inner contentment, which are the basis for engaging consciously with others.

Synopsis:

Every aspect of our life has a part to play in the greater ecological system, Michael Stone explains in this book. How do we bring this large view to our yoga practice? According to Stone, our responsibility as human beings is to live in a sustainable and respectful way. He says two things need to change. First, we need to understand the relationship between our actions and the effects of our actions. Second, once we see the effect of our actions in the human and non-human world, we need practical skills for learning how to make changes.

Using the five principles (yama) described in the Yoga-Sutra attributed to Patanjali, Michael Stone offers a basis for rethinking ethical action and the spiritual path.
