Nonfiction. Philosophy. Personal Transformation. Inspiration. Spirituality. Self-Help. Winner of the 2014 Bronze Medal Living Now Book Award in Meditation/Relaxation. Yoga for the Mind is Slow Thought for a Fast Life. We are constituted to think and reflect, to query and question, to seek answers and not stop at the answers we find, pushing further and further on our quest for meaning and insight into the big and the small, into first things and last. In other words, we are philosophical creatures. How, then, can we achieve more satisfying, rich, creative, and fulfilled lives as creatures of thought and reflection, as fundamentally philosophical beings? This question lies at the heart of YOGA FOR THE MIND—an intensely fruitful and enriching philosophical supplement to the daily diet of existence.
