Yoga’s restorative power is revealed in this “uplifting” memoir about finding “an oasis of peace in the midst of crises large and small” (Publishers Weekly). At the age of fifty, author, parenting expert, and Huffington Post blogger Kathryn E. Livingston thought everything in her life would click into place. Instead, she felt like she was falling apart. She was consumed by panic and anxiety, neglecting her body, always expecting the worst. Until her discovery of yoga helped her find peace. This is a memoir about two transformative years in Kathryn’s life, an account of her relationship with a compassionate teacher who taught her to trust herself and the universe, even while facing the death of her parents, her children leaving home for college, and breast cancer. It’s about recognizing the mind-body connection and finding the way back to mental and physical health. The story of how yoga weaves its magic throughout a woman’s life, yoga aficionados and beginners alike, as well as anyone who has ever faced tragedy head on, will benefit from Kathryn’s journey. Above all, Yin, Yang, Yogini is a memoir about reinvention, with yoga as the backdrop for change—a blueprint for evolving in midlife and in midstride, learning to let go of the past, and living with trust in the present moment.

Dancing into the Light is a heartwarming memoir that captures one woman's transformative journey of self-discovery by making peace with a family at once extremely dysfunctional, yet oddly endearing. As a child, her troubling interaction with her depressed mother coexisted with the affection she held for her happy-go lucky father. With little guidance from either parent, Arlyn was left to fend for herself. A series of fateful events, from taking off in the family car at age twelve to exotic dancing in a carnival, uprooted Arlyn from this childhood world and into a progressive boarding school. Later she traveled to Israel in the aftermath of the Six Day War. There she fell in love with a Swedish man and moved to his native land. A meeting with a college professor, and their subsequent marriage, set Arlyn down the path of Buddhist practice. Making a pilgrimage to India, they received teachings from Tibetan Buddhist masters and Arlyn undertook the rigorous study of Indian classical dance. The Buddhist teachings, along with her ongoing love of dance sustained her as she experienced heart-rending challenges along the way. Throughout this engaging and courageous tale, Arlyn never wavers from looking inward, facing her demons, and using adversity as a path to develop greater wisdom and compassion. It is a redemptive tale of love and loss that will leave no reader unmoved.

“It was nothing at first. Just a little twitch. My left ring finger was twitching, slowly, almost languidly, the way fishing line does when you’ve hooked something without any strength. Like a baby perch. I hadn’t even gotten out of bed yet. My first thought: Stress? (Nope, think again)” And here begins a journey that Anne Clendening never saw coming, tried to deny, avoid, postpone and otherwise reject. After all, how does a dark L.A. hippy chick who swore off booze at 22 fit an early onset Parkinson's diagnosis into a life of bartending in Hollywood rock clubs and yoga? “The stories in this book are my experience. They're about life and yoga and illness and love and disaster and happiness. And since you're holding it, I’m hoping you relate in some way because A) That's the whole point, and B) We all need someone to relate to. And maybe a hand up. (But with words.) Because sometimes you just need to hear it’s all going to work out, even though life may have whammed you and half the time everything might seem like a big fat mess and not at all what it’s supposed to look like, which makes no sense in the first place since none of us really know what’s going to happen and you can’t change fate. If I could, I wouldn’t have Parkinson’s and Prince would still be alive. These stories are for you.”

"No longer indispensable, no longer assured of our old carefully crafted identities, no longer beautiful in the way we were at twenty or thirty or forty, we are hungry and searching nonetheless." From the author of The Gift of an Ordinary Day, this intimate memoir of loss, self-discovery, and growth will resonate deeply with any woman who has ever mourned the passage of time, questioned her own purpose, or wondered, "Do I have what it takes to create something new in my life?" With the candor and warmth that have endeared her to readers, Kenison reflects on the inevitable changes wrought by time: the death of a dear friend, children leaving home, recognition of her own physical vulnerability, and surprising shifts in her marriage. She finds solace in the notion that midlife is also a time of unprecedented opportunity for growth as old roles and responsibilities fall away, and unanticipated possibilities appear on the horizon. More a spiritual journey than a physical one, Kenison's beautifully crafted exploration begins and ends with a home, a life, a marriage. But this metamorphosis proves as demanding as any trek or pilgrimage to distant lands-it will guide and inspire every woman who finds herself asking "What now?"

The concept of yinyang lies at the heart of Chinese thought and culture. The relationship between these two opposing, yet mutually dependent, forces is symbolized in the familiar black and white symbol that has become an icon in popular culture across the world. The real significance of yinyang is, however, more complex and subtle. This brilliant and comprehensive analysis by one of the leading authorities in the field captures the richness and multiplicity of the meanings and applications of yinyang, including its visual presentations. Through a vast range of historical and textual sources, the book examines the scope and role of yinyang, the philosophical significance of its various layers of meanings and its relation to numerous schools and traditions within Chinese (and Western) philosophy. By putting yinyang on a secure and clear philosophical footing, the book roots the concept in the original Chinese idiom, distancing it from Western assumptions, frameworks and terms, yet also seeking to connect its analysis to shared cross-cultural philosophical concerns.
