"While many people think of yoga as a purely physical exercise, it is just as much a mental discipline. In this much-anticipated follow-up to his beloved first book, Meditations from the Mat, acclaimed yoga practitioner Rolf Gates delves even deeper into the essential role of meditation in yogic practice. Presented in the form of 365 short reflections, Gates helps readers fundamentally reconsider their relationships with their minds and bodies, to quiet the inner turmoil excited by modern life through self-reflection. Over the course of seven chapters, he explores Effortlessness, Non-Violence, The Spirit of Practice, Mindfulness, Compassion and Loving Kindness, Joy and Equanimity, and Intention and Being, giving readers--be they advanced yoga students or novices seeking a little tranquility--the support they need to integrate meditation into their daily lives."

A lucid, practical guide to develop relaxation, awareness, mental clarity, and spiritual insight in your daily life. Since mindfulness is known to be so physically, mentally, and spiritually beneficial, why not practice it right now? Why not in every moment? Burmese Buddhist master Sayadaw U Tejaniya writes that we can indeed practice in this way, and the key is not forceful effort but rather a continuous gentle remembering of our intention to renew our awareness. Thirty-one short chapters--"A Month of Daily Life Meditations"--show precisely how to build a daily life meditation practice that steadily develops relaxation, refreshment, and enlightenment. "The right time to meditate is all day long, from the moment we wake up and open our eyes, until the moment we fall asleep at night," writes U Tejaniya. "If you are practicing correctly with right effort, it will definitely bring peace and joy."

Deeply personal essays and daily prompts for self-reflection while healing from addiction and walking the road of recovery from the author of Meditations from the Mat and Meditations on Intention and Being. You are a process that has called forth a teaching for this day. This teaching will not be new to you; rather it will be reminding you of what you already know. Reminding you of who you already are. Rolf Gates, author of Meditations from the Mat, has walked the walk of the 12-step method of recovery while traveling down the Buddhist eightfold way and practicing the Eight Limbs of Classical Yoga. His integrated approach has been the key to his understanding of sobriety for over 25 years. In his series of 365 essays, Gates explores the lessons and experiences from his own practice and study, classical teachings, and his career as a teacher and coach. Each eloquent and brief essay is accompanied by a self-reflection prompt to help guide you on your journey of introspection and change. As the co-founder of the Yoga + Recovery Conference at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health and Esalen Institute, Gates has made a significant contribution to understanding the role that yoga can play in recovery from addiction. With his personalized approach to both the modern and classic teachings and by embedding it within the space of the human heart and everyday life, Gates is a solid guide to finding and living the freedom that lives within each of us.

Daily Intentions is a collection of intuitively written meditations that offers the reader a gentle, spiritual, and thoughtful approach in dealing with everyday problems, difficult emotions, and the high-tech stressors common to us all. Each daily entry reveals an insight accompanied by a simple, spiritual, practical solution or a universal truth that can be easily understood by anyone. Every word in Daily Intentions has been divinely inspired and will, in turn, inspire those who read the book, whether they are beginning spiritual seekers, well-seasoned seekers who are already traveling a spiritual path, or those that maintain no particular belief in any Primary Universal Source. The daily entries may serve as a reminder of what the reader already knows deep within his or her soul, as well as offer ways to rediscover their own truth by using the simple techniques suggested in much of the book. Most of the techniques are short meditations and holistic approaches, experientially tested and proven, not only by the author, but also by millions of others throughout history.

Gil brings the practice of mindfulness not only to formal meditation but to all the varying aspects of every day life.
