Meditations on Intention and Being
Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga, Mindfulness, and CompassionBook - 2015
While many people think of yoga as a purely physical exercise, it is just as much a mental discipline. In this much-anticipated follow-up to his beloved first book, Meditations from the Mat, acclaimed yoga practitioner Rolf Gates delves even deeper into the essential role of meditation in yogic practice. Presented in the form of 365 short reflections, Gates helps readers fundamentally reconsider their relationships with their minds and bodies, to quiet the inner turmoil excited by modern life through self-reflection. Over the course of seven chapters, he explores Effortlessness, Non-Violence, The Spirit of Practice, Mindfulness, Compassion and Loving Kindness, Joy and Equanimity, and Intention and Being, giving readers--be they advanced yoga students or novices seeking a little tranquility--the support they need to integrate meditation into their daily lives.
