When the way forward seems uncertain, where can we turn for guidance we can trust? For yoga luminary, meditation teacher, and artist @elenabrower, the answer has always been close at hand.⠀

“Whenever I’ve needed direction, strength, or centering, I’ve so often turned to my own journals. Why? Because many of the answers we seek are found within ourselves.”⠀

Now, for those compelled to the pen and page, Elena invites us to gather our own wisdom through writing, self-inquiry, and reflection. Practice You is a portable sacred sanctuary to record our flashes of insight, find our ground, create and clarify our goals, and bear witness to our own evolution. ⠀

@practiceyou is stocked and loaded for release on September 19th!

"Know that the world is overwhelmingly filled with love, except for vacuum cleaners - those are inherently evil."⠀

Waking Up and Turning On⠀

"I suspect you might agree with me that the world has gone stark, raving, totally loony tunes; round the bend; nutty as a fruitcake; not in its right mind; dangerously and absolutely mad—especially in the ways it views women, girls, and the "feminine."⠀

This insanity compels most of us to hide away and push down parts of ourselves in order to feel lovable, valuable, or be taken seriously.⠀

Which doesn't work, of course and only ensures we remain unfulfilled, miserable, and at war with ourselves."⠀

The best writers say their work seems to come from a source beyond the thinking mind. But how do we access that source? “We must first look inside ourselves and be willing to touch that raw emotional core at the heart of a deeper creativity,” writes Albert Flynn DeSilver. In Writing as a Path to Awakening, this renowned poet, writer, and teacher shows you how to use meditation to cultivate true depth in your own writing—so your words reveal layers of profound insight that inspire and move your readers.⠀

'Writing as a Path to Awakening' is a unique treasury of stories, meditations, and writing exercises to spark creativity and spiritual growth. It has a September 1st release date! @albert_flynn_desilver

Happy Fri-yay! #favoritebookfriday is in full effect! We've got a pick/pic from Dean, our Online Course Coordinator. One of Dean's favorite reads is Shinzen Young's, 'The Science of Enlightenment: How Meditation Works'! ⠀

"My favorite aspect of this book is the way Shinzen Young is able to bring a seemingly mystical and ineffable idea like enlightenment to a more practical and grounded place. It appeals to both my scientific mind as well as my practical mind, and makes enlightenment seem not only attainable, but inevitable."⠀

"For me, having a dog is similar to dharma practice in the sense it is focusing out as opposed to focusing in."⠀
