Synopses & Reviews
Celebrated yoga teacher and activist Seane Corn shares pivotal accounts of her life with raw honesty — enriched with in-depth spiritual teachings — to help us heal, evolve, and change the world
"My first lessons in spirituality and yoga had nothing to do with a mat, but everything to do with waking up. They included angels, seeing God, and being in Heaven. But, believe me, not the way you might think." So begins Revolution of the Soul.
What comes next reads like a riveting memoir filled with uncensored moments of joy, pain, wonder, and humor.
Except, this book is so much more than that.
Seane's real purpose is to guide us into a deep, gut-level understanding of our highest Self through yoga philosophy and other tools for emotional healing — not just as abstract ideas but as embodied, fully felt wisdom. Why? To spark a "revolution of the soul" in each of us, so we can awaken to our purpose and become true agents of change. Just a few of the stops along the way include:
The everyday "angels" Seane finds in the gritty corners of New York's 1980s East Village; her early struggles as a total yoga-class misfit; the profound shadow work and body-based practices that helped her to heal childhood trauma, OCD, unhealthy behaviors, and relationship wounding; hard-earned lessons from some of the most heartbreaking places on the planet; and many other unforgettable teaching stories.
"Seane wrangles the power of yoga down from the clouds and into our ordinary relationships, hardships, and bodies. Then she shows us how to use that power to heal ourselves and the world. Seane is a master teacher, one of my favorite human beings, and a hell of a writer. I am a better person for having read this book." Glennon Doyle, founder of Together Rising and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Love Warrior
"Love this book. Like Seane herself, the message is direct, honest, funny, heartfelt, and filled with wisdom that can help all of us, except me, do better, be better, and work toward creating a healthier and more peaceful planet for all." Larry David, actor, writer, director, producer of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld
"Only Seane Corn could write a sweeping, insightful, spiritual manifesto that still feels so relatable and grounded — so . . . gritty. Revolution of the Soul is for anyone who wants to feel a little more connected to the world around them, to the people in their lives, and to themselves." Kate Fagan, sports journalist, author of What Made Maddy Run and The Reappearing Act, and cohost of Free Cookies
"This radical and real gem of a book is a spiritual pilgrimage through the desert of life's difficulties to the holiness of your own beautiful heart and soul. Thank you, Seane Corn, for showing us what it takes sometimes to become a true, deep, and seasoned human being." Katherine Woodward Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of Calling in "The One" and Conscious Uncoupling
