Banyen's Description: 

These fresh, intimate teachings by innovative dharma and yoga teacher Michael Stone—edited by Erin Robinsong with notes from Carina Stone—offer essential wisdom for living with compassion and responsiveness in the midst of everyday life in an imbalanced world. With overarching themes of practice, love, and social action, Stone addresses essential questions:

  • What does daily practice actually look like?
  • Where are you going with your practice?
  • How do you take your practice into your everyday life?
  • How does practice manifest as love?
  • How do you act as a steward of society and live in right relationship with each other and the planet?

Our culture needs new patterns. We need to remodel old energy. When I find a new way of moving, everything I see changes. When my viewpoint shifts, new things are possible…

 

This is a small book. It is meant to be like a friend on your path, in your practice (whatever your practice is).  It is meant to encourage you. Keep it by your bedside or on the windowsill next to your bathtub… There is no right way; each chapter is like a bead on a mala, each nugget a teaching to digest and take along on your journey. —Carina Stone

Stone reminds us in a clear and encouraging way that as we turn wholeheartedly toward what is, with our bodies, hearts, and minds, we discover innate resilience and enliven our creative ability to respond. Practice, he shows, is always both internal and external.

A true person is someone whose discipline allows them to be free of themselves so that they can serve. That’s where freedom is… If we aren’t attached to a story about who we are, we are free to let ourselves not know all the answers.

 

And then we can return to our innate curiosity.
