The first two limbs of the eight-fold path of yoga sutras—the basic text for classical yoga—are examined in this spiritual guide to the practice of yoga. Foundational to all yogic thought, they are considered to be the guidelines to the yoga way of living that free individuals to take ownership of their lives, direct them toward the fulfillment they seek, and gain the skills to choose attitude, thought, and action. The first five guidelines are referred to as the yamas—a Sanskrit word that translates to "restraints"—and encompass nonviolence, truthfulness, not stealing, nonexcess, and nonpossessiveness. The last five are referred to as the niyamas, or observances—purity, contentment, self-discipline, self-study, and surrender. A self-study section at the end of each chapter may also be used by instructors for group discussion.

An accessible introduction to an embodied spiritual practice for anyone seeking profound and lasting self-transformation. “Mussar practice aims to help us become more whole in our lives. It is focused on helping us move from partialness or even brokenness toward wholeness. Yoga embodies a similar concept.... By marrying Mussar practice and yoga practice, this book opens a new pathway to developing greater wholeness.... The wholeness that comes of our efforts in turn affects both body and soul, and we experience the fruit of our efforts in the form of inner peace.” —from the Foreword In this clear and easy-to-use introduction to Mussar Yoga—a blending of Jewish and Eastern spiritual practices—you will learn how to explore the physical dimension of ethical behaviors and attitudes such as humility, generosity, enthusiasm and gratitude through yoga poses and the yogic practice of breath work. Intended for the novice as well as the yoga expert, and for people of all faiths, each exercise is accompanied by step-by-step instructions, helpful photographs, mantras and journaling exercises. With practice, Mussar Yoga can help free you from bad habits and self-destructive behavior, increase your capacity for compassion and acts of goodness, and help you develop a more fulfilling, meaningful life.

This is my story of struggle and triumph as I faced my toxic relationship with food, religion, death and negative self-talk while working towards my life goal of being an elite athlete. Ultimately, this is the story of how I practiced my way into a new state of being. Mental Health affects us all. I have learned that when I share from my heart and create a conversation around tools, exercises and how to practice, we all benefit and evolve into the best version of ourselves. With support and leading by example, I pave the way for you to re-frame your life's story to become a source of power and growth. We all have a story, and when we retrain our brain to align with our core - rather than who we have been habituated, programmed or traumatized into being - we get to create a unique impact that is your privilege and birth right. Welcome to my Hero's Journey.

Zwei weise Männer, eine Botschaft Sie sind zwei der bedeutendsten Leitfiguren unserer Zeit: Seine Heiligkeit der Dalai Lama und Erzbischof Desmond Tutu. Obwohl ihr Leben von vielen Widrigkeiten und Gefahren geprägt war, strahlen sie eine Freude aus, die durch nichts zu erschüttern ist. Im Buch der Freude vereinen die „Brüder im Geiste“ ihre immense Lebenserfahrung und die Weisheit ihrer Weltreligionen zu einer gemeinsamen zentralen Erkenntnis: Nur tief empfundene Freude kann sowohl das Leben des Einzelnen als auch das globale Geschehen spürbar zum Positiven wandeln. Unabhängig von allen Herausforderungen und Krisen, mit denen wir täglich konfrontiert werden, können wir diese Energie in uns entfalten und weitergeben. So wird die Freude zur Triebkraft, die unserem Dasein mehr Liebe und Sinn verleiht – und zugleich Hoffnung und Frieden in unsere unsichere Welt bringt.
