"A POWERFUL WORK OF SPIRITUALITY AND ANTI-RACISM"-Publishers Weekly "IF YOU READ ONE BOOK IN 2020, MAKE IT THIS ONE."-Tricycle From much-admired meditation expert Sebene Selassie, You Belong is a call to action, exploring our tangled relationship with belonging, connection, and each other You are not separate. You never were. You never will be. We are not separate from each other. But we don't always believe it, and we certainly don't always practice it. In fact, we often practice the opposite-disconnection and domination. From unconscious bias to "cancel culture," denial of our inherent interconnection limits our own freedom. In You Belong, much-admired meditation expert Sebene Selassie reveals that accepting our belonging is the key to facing the many challenges currently impacting our world. Using ancient philosophy, multidisciplinary research, exquisite storytelling, and razor-sharp wit, Selassie leads us in an exploration of all the ways we separate (and thus suffer) and offers a map back to belonging. To belong is to experience joy in any moment: to feel pleasure, dance in public, accept death, forgive what seems unforgivable, and extend kindness to yourself and others. To belong is also to acknowledge injustice, reckon with history, and face our own shadows. Full of practical advice and profound revelations, You Belong makes a winning case for resisting the forces that demand separation and reclaiming the connection-and belonging-that have been ours all along.

A comprehensive manual for living a spiritual life, based on a verse-by-verse commentary on India's timeless scripture - from the author of its best-selling translation. (The ebook The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living 9781586381455 includes all three volumes in this series.) The Bhagavad Gita is set on the battlefield of an apocalyptic war between good and evil. Faced with a dire moral dilemma, the warrior prince Arjuna turns in anguish to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, for answers to the fundamental questions of life. Easwaran points out that Arjuna's crisis is acutely modern. The Gita's battlefield is the struggle for self-mastery that every human being must wage. Arjuna represents each of us, and Sri Krishna is the Lord, instructing us in eighteen chapters of lofty wisdom as we face the social, environmental, and global challenges that threaten our world today. Easwaran is a spiritual teacher and author of deep insight and warmth. His verse-by-verse commentary interprets the Gita's teachings for modern readers, explaining the Sanskrit concepts and philosophy and applying them with practicality, wisdom, and humor to every aspect of our work, our relationships, and our lives. With everyday anecdotes, stories, and examples, he shows that the changes we long to see in the world start with the transformation of our own consciousness. The practical exercises recommended by Easwaran to achieve transformation are part of a spiritual program he developed for his own life. They are accessible to people from all backgrounds and cultures. Urging us to adopt a higher image of the human being, he assures us that peace and unity are within reach. Each volume of this series covers six chapters of the Gita. Each may be read on its own, but all three volumes together form an in-depth, verse-by-verse explanation of this ancient scripture and its relevance today. Each volume includes instructions in Easwaran's universal eight-point program of passage meditation. Volume 1: The first six chapters of the Gita explore the concept of the innermost Self and source of wisdom in each of us. Easwaran explains how we can begin to transform ourselves, even as householders engaged in busy lives. Volume 2: The chapters in this volume go beyond the individual Self and investigate the Supreme Reality that underlies all creation. Here, Easwaran delves into the unity of life, and builds a bridge across the seeming divide between scientific knowledge and spiritual wisdom. Volume 3: The final six chapters put forth an urgent appeal for us to begin to see that all of us are one - to make the connection between the Self within and the Reality underlying all creation. Global in scope, the emphasis is on what we can do to make a difference to heal our environment and establish peace in the world. Easwaran's commentary is for all students of the Gita, whatever their background, and for anyone who is trying to find a path to wisdom, love, and kindness in themselves and our troubled world. Written as an authoritative, accessible guide to a much-loved scripture, it is a handbook for finding peace and clarity within. This second edition incorporates revisions made across all three volumes following the author's final instructions.
This book is the final instalment in the trilogy by the author. The first book, Yoga & Meditation: a holistic approach to perfect homeostasis and health was an introduction to yoga with a hint of meditation. The second book, Meditation & Yoga: Discovering the higher spheres of existence, concentrated more on meditation as a spiritual practice. Thousands of photographs of Yogini Shubh Veer, aged between 45 to 70 years, were taken by her students. All the different yoga postures shown, happened spontaneously during deep meditation. The author used to record them as notes and sketches to remember what had occurred during meditation. Unfortunately many postures where adequate notes couldn't be made were lost. This book still has more than 1,250 different hatha yoga postures described in more than 2,350 photographs. Also included is a section about Jet, the miracle pet. She was the life companion of the author, Yogini Shubh Veer, a Siddha Yogini, sharing her life and meditation. In 1994 Jet's body was exhumed, months after burial, and was found to have remained in an intact state. To date the body is still intact, and she appears to be in a state of suspended animation. Something astounding!
Practicing meditation under difficult conditions, Upsasika Kee eventually broke through to complete inner peace. Here is her achievement -- direct, plain-spoken talks on how to deal with sickness, how to allow suffering and stress to always 'disband, ' as she calls it, and how to how to keep the mind centered. Upasika Kee was a uniquely powerful teacher. Evocative of the great Ajahn Chah, her teachings are earthy, refreshingly direct, and often funny. In the twentieth century, she grew to become one of the most famous teachers in Thailand-male or female-all the more remarkable because, rarer still, she was a layperson
Feline stressed? Would you like a cat-alyst to purr-fect peace in your life? Ever watched enviously as your furry friend finds a sunbeam and stretches out on it - on your bed - as you rush to catch the bus? Follow this sound advice, straight from the moggie's mouth, and maybe you can achieve catitude too. This is a humorous guide to finding and appreciating - cat-style - those peaceful moments amid the chaos and stress of working and domestic life. It's no coincidence that your cat has decided to sleep on your keyboard, or your tax return, or that report you should have finished last week. They're saying, "Pay me attention and why not get me some food while you're at it"... but they're also saying, "Find the stillness within the detail, amid the tumult, of your hectic life. Take some time for you to be you." Probably. This is a cat's guide to beating anxiety, appreciating the moment and being mindful. So look around you, take some time to smell the catnip, take a lint roller to your hairy trousers, and try some Meowditation. Eleanor Abraham is a Glasgow-based writer and editor. Based on an idea by Liz Small
In this lavishly illustrated memoir, including more than 80 full-color reproductions of her intricate watercolor paintings and the stories behind them, Francene Hart recounts the evolution of her art from formative influences to her masterful integrations of Nature, Spirit, and Sacred Geometry. Opening with her early work on mandalas and her explorations of the work of Joseph Campbell and C. G. Jung, Hart explains how her first works of art were in response to the solitary life she led in the forest, where she discovered the hidden order of Nature. She reveals how she learned to center her artistic explorations on the intelligence of the heart rather than the intellect, utilizing the wisdom and imagery of Sacred Geometry, reverence for the natural environment, and the interconnectedness between all things as her inspirations. She describes the shamanic lessons that accompanied her discoveries and shaped her understanding of sacred relationships with the self, others, and Mother Earth. She explores how to tap into the energies provided by spirit guides and power animals, like Jaguar, Raven, Octopus, and Dolphin, and explains her profound affinity for the ocean, including her discovery of water consciousness in Hawaii. Offering chronicles of her inspiring travels and transformational encounters around the world, Hart shares her experiences at sacred sites in the Amazon, Central America, Egypt, England, Scotland, Paris, Cambodia, and the Himalayas and how these places influenced her art.
