'MINDFUL LIVING, Everyday Practices for a Sacred and Happy Life' published by Rockpool.
The book is about the application of 'sadhana' in our lives. Sadhana means ‘conscious spiritual practice’, and it really has little to do with what you’re doing on the outside and everything to do with what is going on inside. For example drinking a cup of tea is a sadhana if it is done with gratitude and elegance; such as we see in the exquisite Japanese tea ceremonies. Sadhana can be applied to anything you do that is uplifting and elevates you beyond the mundane or selfish. Sadhana is always anchored in ahimsa (non-violence, or kindness), because for a practice to be spiritual – filled with spirit – it must not harm another. Sadhana means to act, to do something, to be in the world yet deeply connected to your spirit.

We often hear and learn that yoga is about far more than stretching your physical body or staying fit. How can we take the values we wish to cultivate in our lives and put them into action?

These are some of the questions explored in ‘Yoga Off the Mat’.
