Yoga of the Heart
10 Ethical Principles for Gaining Limitless Growth, Confidence, and AchievementBook - 1998
People typically practice yoga for its strengthening and meditative effects, and therefore most of the commercial books to date have focused on the breathing and bending aspects. Yoga of the Heart takes the reader a step further -- into the development of confidence and well being by reaching deep into yogic philosophy to explain in simple terms its ten essential ethics. It includes such lessons as:
-- "Do no harm". (Ethic #1)
-- "Learn More About What's Important to You" (Ethic #2)
-- "Encourage Heroic Capability in Yourself" (Ethic #10)
Alice Christensen shows that when these principles are applied daily, life grows richer and more satifying. The key message is that living happily in a world overwhelmed with uncertainties is the pinnacle of achievement, for within uncertainty lies possibility.
