Banyen's Description: 

Build an integrated, deeply personal practice to cultivate transformation, self-trust, and awakening with insights and techniques from beloved teacher Sarah Powers.

More than just physical poses on a mat, yoga can be a profound path of self-realization. Lit from Within encourages readers to pursue yoga in its fullness, examining conscious and unconscious habits, connecting to our inner landscapes, and freeing us to relate to ourselves and our world with a sacred outlook.

Sarah Powers helps readers relate to five levels of our human experience—physical, energetic, emotional, mental, and interpersonal. Each section offers an opportunity for self-inquiry and practices to fuel our growth, including yin yoga, meditation, emotional intelligence exercises like creating connection with an inner critic, and interpersonal dynamics drawn from the Internal Family Systems approach. Learning to recognize, reflect on, and at times re-direct these different levels of experience adds a vital dimension to the practice. The book draws on Sarah's many years of practice and teaching, influenced by the rich tapestries of yin yoga, Buddhism, Taoism, and psychology.

“With Lit from Within, Sarah Powers brings us an exceptionally comprehensive, in-depth overview of embodied spiritual practice through a mindful and integrative path that weaves together the disciplines of yoga, meditation, and contemporary psychological wisdom. This masterpiece, emerging from a lifetime dedicated to translating ancient lineages and their practical application for these times, is a trustworthy and insightful guide for empowering our contribution to collective awakening.” —Thanissara, author of Time to Stand Up: An Engaged Buddhist Manifesto for Our Earth

“With characteristic lucidity and elegance, Sarah Powers has charted a multidimensional atlas for exploring the layered terrain of human incarnation… If you’re looking for a guide to take your practice of yoga, dharma, or mindfulness to a new level of depth, subtlety, and holistic integration, this is the wise companion you need.” —Anne Cushman, author of Moving into Meditation
