Millions of Americans know yoga as a superb form of exercise and as a potent source of calm in the midst of our stress-filled lives. Far fewer are aware of the full promise of yoga as 'the way of the fully alive human being'-a 4,000-year-old practical path of liberation that fits the needs of modern Western seekers with startling precision.

Now Stephen Cope, a Western-trained psychotherapist who has lived and taught for more than ten years at the largest yoga center in America, offers this marvelously lively and irreverent 'pilgrim's progress' for today's world. He demystifies the philosophy, psychology, and practice of yoga, and shows how it applies to our most human dilemmas: from loss, disappointment, and addiction, to the eternal conflicts around sex and relationship. And he shows us that in yoga, 'liberation' does not require us to leave our everyday lives for some transcendent spiritual plane-life itself is the path.

Above all, Cope shows how yoga can heal the suffering of self-estrangement that pervades our society, leading us to a new sense of purpose and to a deeper, more satisfying life in the world.

A comprehensive view of Yoga and where it can fit in our lives. Compelling narration. Book does a good job of weaving abstract content around a very accessible story. Highly recommend.
