Yoga, Meet Life. Sometimes an hour-long yoga class is the only chance we get to connect meaningfully with our bodies and our minds during a week otherwise full of work, family, and the daily grind. Have you ever wondered how would it feel to bring that experience of awareness and calm out of the yoga studio and into your everyday life? After all, we know that practicing yoga can give us a leaner body and more sculpted limbs, but isn't its most important benefit the way it makes us feel? In Do Your Om Thing, master yoga teacher and creator of the popular blog OmGal.com Rebecca Pacheco shows us that the true practice of yoga is about much more than achieving the perfect headstand or withstanding an hour-long class in a room heated to 100 degrees. "Yoga is not about performance," she tells us, "it's about practice, on your mat and in your life. If you want to get better at anything what should you do? Practice. Confidence, compassion, awareness, joy—if you want more of these—and who doesn't?—yoga offers the skills to practice them." In her warm, personal, and often hilarious prose, Rebecca translates yogic philosophy for its twenty-first-century devotees, making ancient principles and philosophy feel accessible, relatable, and genuinely rooted in the world in which we live today. And by illuminating how the guiding principles of yoga apply to our modern lives, Rebecca shows us that the true power of a yoga practice is not physical transformation, but mental and spiritual liberation.

We often hear that yoga is more than just a physical practice, but it can be tricky to understand why that is. Some think yoga is for people who love to get hot and sweaty. Others think of hippies sitting cross-legged meditating on peace, love and brown rice. But what if yoga could actually be a way to live a rich and rewarding lifestyle? A way to infuse meaning and depth into our everyday lives? To live on purpose and with intention? In The Modern Yogi, respected yoga teacher Brandi Cowl translates traditional yogic teachings into real, tangible and meaningful everyday practices. This book will resonate with any level of yogi who wants to understand the physical practice and the ancient yogic teachings in a modern way. Brandi shows us how yoga can help us take a step back from the racing, busy, swirling rush of modern life, and instead choose our own path forward. And with over one hundred and fifty pictures breaking down common yoga poses, it’s also a great way to better understand your own body and to deepen your physical practice. This book is about really living our yoga, both on our mats and in our lives.
From renowned yogi meditation teacher and author of Do Your Om Thing Rebecca Pacheco comes Still Life, offering an in-depth exploration of mindfulness and meditation misconceptions to arm the reader with inspirational and practical tools for cultivating a consistent mindfulness practice. For years Rebecca Pacheco has taught readers and students alike how to embrace the wisdom of the yoga sutras and reap their mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits. In Still Life, she turns her focus to mindfulness, demystifying a seemingly esoteric practice and giving readers practical, real-life tools to implement mindfulness in their own lives--regardless of experience level or lifestyle. Pacheco begins by deconstructing the common arguments against meditation--from "meditation is easy" to "you have to sit still with your eyes closed' and the infamous "I don't have the time." Pacheco offers valuable insight into what mindfulness entails, and why the process of cultivating more of it can improve not only our own lives, but also the lives of others. Pacheco also takes on the reductive messaging about mindfulness commonly heard from the contemporary wellness community, including the popularly-held tenet that meditation is about "good vibes only." A contemplative life, Pacheco argues, isn't synonymous with bliss and positivity, but rather a degree of mental, emotional, and spiritual grappling. Still Life challenges readers to dig deep, to learn and practice tools that can ultimately lead to joy--to waking up in the present, reclaiming the moment, and living life fully.
Modern Science with its powerful instruments have a model of the entire creation (the universe or the Cosmos) as the result of a huge explosion that occurred 13-14 billion years ago. They call it the Big Bang. They surmise that something very dense and very big (lately, or very small) exploded into the universe we have today; and the explosion is still going on as the explosive swirls (now known as galaxies) are spreading or moving away from each other. In our swirl, known as the Milky Way (full of swirling embers, or Stars) there is a swirling ember known as the Sun with debris swirling around it. The bigger chunks of debris are known as planets. The Sun and its planets are in gravitational and centrifugal balance. I totally accept this model of the physical creation, which seems to conflict with the biblical version in Genesis 1; but it really does not, according to my realistic interpretation. Science cannot analyze that something that exploded or where it came from. Their instruments are powerless to go back beyond the Big Bang. Also, they never mention who (if anyone) set off the explosion! I boldly attempt to explain these mysteries that science cannot. This author knows that the Author of the Bible and the Author of True Science is One and the Same. I try to repair the schism that exists between the Church and True Science: each seeking the Truth honestly and vigorously in their own way. This is my Three-Stranded Chord Message: God, the True Church and True Science. A three-stranded cord is not easily broken.
Eric Leif DaVietnamesen was raised as a Southern Baptist and Mormon convert, although he was always a non-believer. However, like everyone else in his blue collar surroundings, he believed in America, the military, anti-Communism, and, although too young to vote, Senator Barry Goldwater when he ran for president in 1964. Then, in the Sixties, he went to college and became swept up in the movements of the times. He came to realize that everything he'd believed about "his war," the Vietnameseetnam War, was wrong. He came to believe that we were more than just on the "wrong side." We were the wrong side. Eventually he was drafted. However, he refused induction into the military, preferring to face five years in prison, the maximum sentence, rather than fight in an immoral war. This memoir describes his journey through the Sixties, from a working class gung-ho Goldwater Republican supporter of the Vietnameseetnam War to a radicalized anti-war actiVietnamesest who was eventually drafted to fight in that war -- but refused to go.
