Product Description

Review

“An in-depth investigation of the interweaving strands of yoga and Buddhism. Its broad range of perspectives provides a wealth of illuminating insights. A valuable resource.”—Joseph Goldstein, author of A Heart Full of Peace and One Dharma

“Lucid, wise, and rich with detail, this is a must-read for yogis of all traditions.”—Roshi Joan Halifax, author of Being with Dying



“For too long in the West we’ve had the notion that Yoga and Buddhism are two separate, even antagonistic, paths. In this collection of articles by some of our finest Yoga and Buddhist practitioners, Michael Stone demonstrates that the two disciplines share ancient roots, methods, and goals; and that the time has come for us to re-affirm and learn from these old commonalities.”—Richard Rosen, author of The Yoga of Breath

“This collection marks a crucial step toward mutual understanding between two important Eastern traditions and will bring pleasure and instruction to experienced and novice readers.”—Library Journal  

“What struck me as I finished the book was the depth of the commitment to practice of each of the authors, and their clarity in sharing their wisdom. I read the essays out of order, depending on my mood each day, and when I finished the last one I felt like I had been on an intensive Buddhist Yoga Retreat, led by the authors of these 13 beautiful essays. This book itself was an experience, and, for me, the reading of it became a daily practice.”—Wildmind.org

“A truly useful, helpful, spiritual guide. The entire book is a spur to practice.”—Parabola

About the Author

Michael Stone is a yoga teacher and psychotherapist in private practice who lectures widely on yoga, as well as on mindfulness meditation in clinical psychotherapy practice. His approach to yoga focuses on the integration of theory and practice in a way that is rooted in tradition yet responsive and alive in contemporary culture. He is the founder of Centre of Gravity Sangha, a community of yoga and Buddhist practitioners based in Toronto, Canada. Michael offers classes and retreats that focus on integrating yoga postures, breathing practices, and meditation with textual study.

To my sadness Mr Thurman simply wrote the forward and most chapters are just other peoples works re done. I originally believed the entire book was by stone and thurman. Very dissappoited since I have all the other authors incorporated in the book.

HASH(0xaa7c28dc) out of 5 stars Integrating the riches of all the teachings we are exposed to in these generous times Nov. 21 2013
By kestrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Without diluting a teaching or tradition, I believe it strengthens practice
to appreciate and understand all traditions. To have thoughtful essays
about the roots and intentions of both Buddhist and Hindu yoga practice
is helpful. I know many many people whose "physical" yoga practice
deepened into a desire to deepen their inner life and enrich their
life in the world, in the community, in these bodies and lives we have.
It opened a new understanding to my yoga teacher and it gives my
Buddhist thinkers a place to "sit" in a way that befriends their bodies
(and their yoga friends :>).
