The Great Work of Your Life Book Review:

An inspiring guide to finding your life’s purpose—what spiritual teachers call dharma—through mindfulness and self-exploration. Stephen Cope says that in order to have a fulfilling life you must discover the deep purpose hidden at the very core of your self. The secret to unlocking this mystery, he asserts, can be found in the pages of a two-thousand-year-old spiritual classic called the Bhagavad Gita—an ancient allegory about the path to dharma, told through a timeless dialogue between the fabled archer, Arjuna, and his divine mentor, Krishna. Cope takes readers on a step-by-step tour of this revered tale and highlights well-known Western lives that embody its central principles—including such luminaries as Jane Goodall, Walt Whitman, Susan B. Anthony, John Keats, and Harriet Tubman, along with stories of ordinary people as well. If you’re feeling lost in your own life’s journey, The Great Work of Your Life may help you to find and to embrace your true calling. Praise for The Great Work of Your Life “Keep a pen and paper handy as you read this remarkable book: It’s like an owner’s manual for the soul.”—Dani Shapiro, author of Devotion “A masterwork . . . You’ll find inspiration in these pages. You’ll gain a better appreciation of divine guidance and perhaps even understand how you might better hear it in your own life.”—Yoga Journal “I am moved and inspired by this book, the clarity and beauty of the lives lived in it, and the timeless dharma it teaches.”—Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart “A rich source of contemplation and inspiration [that] encourages readers . . . to discover and fully pursue their inner self’s calling.”—Publishers Weekly “Fabulous . . . If you have ever wondered what your purpose is, this book is a great guide to help you on your path.”—YogaHara

The Dharma in Difficult Times Book Review:

The best-selling author of The Great Work of Your Life shows us the way through our darkest times to our truest calling. How do we make sense of our lives when our world seems to be falling apart? In this beautifully written guide, scholar and teacher Stephen Cope shows that crises don’t have to derail us from our purpose—they can actually help us to find our purpose and step forward as our best selves. The Dharma in Difficult Times extends the message of Cope’s best-loved book, The Great Work of Your Life, which gave readers a roadmap for the journey to their true calling. As in Great Work, Cope here takes the ancient yogic text the Bhagavad Gita—the epic narrative of the warrior Arjuna’s odyssey of self-discovery—as a model for the reader’s journey. Then he builds on that foundation using the stories and teachings of famous figures, as well as stories of ordinary people and his own rich personal experience. Along the way, we find striking examples for finding meaning and purpose in our lives: • Gandhi shows how to tap our spiritual resources and listen for our inner voice • Sojourner Truth and Henry David Thoreau inspire us to seek out the unmistakable signs of dharma in the midst of chaos • Marian Anderson and Ruby Sales shed light on dharma’s mystic power and how we learn to trust in it • And more In the spirit of Pema Chödrön’s When Things Fall Apart, this book is required reading when you find yourself forging a path through crisis—or seeking a way through your darkest times to your truest self.

Yoga and the Quest for the True Self Book Review:

More than 100,000 copies sold! 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 one of America's leading scholars of yoga psychology--who is also a Western-trained psychotherapist--offers this marvelously lively and personal account of an ancient tradition that promises "the soul awake in this lifetime." Drawing on the vivid stories of practitioners at the largest yoga center in America, where he has lived and taught for more than ten years, Stephen Cope describes the philosophy, psychology, and practice of yoga--a practical science of development that urges us not to transcend or dissolve the self, but rather to encounter it more deeply. In this irreverent modern-day Pilgrim's Progress, Cope introduces us to an unforgettable cast of contemporary seekers--on the road to enlightenment carrying all the baggage of the human condition: confusion, loss, disappointment, addiction, and the eternal conflicts around sex and relationship. As he describes the subtle shifts of energy and consciousness that happen at each stage of the path, we discover that in yoga, "liberation" does not require us to leave life in the world 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.

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Great work lives inside all of us. The question is: Do we make the contributions we're capable of? Is our best work getting out there? Breaking through? Creating a difference the world loves? We've long been told our ability to succeed depends on our IQ, talent, education level, gender, job title, or when and where we were born.

With insights from the largest-ever study of award-winning work, Great Work reveals five practical skills that will help you ideate, innovate, and deliver work that gets noticed and appreciated.

Kissing the Limitless Book Review:

This book was written to be used in concert with whatever pagan tradition you are currently involved in. There are at least three levels to it: part one will help you strengthen the foundations of your spiritual practice, part two will ensure that you are sound in body, mind, emotion, sex, and spirit, and have developed will and ethics, and part three will lead you further into connection with your Godhood. . .The tools used to do this are breath work, dream work, pendulum work, aura reading, tarot, meditation, spells, and others. The goal of the book is to help guide you through the stages of personal consciousness that will then enable you to step into inclusive consciousness—a consciousness that encompasses the personal, political, environmental, social, mental, and transpersonal. [It is this] inclusive consciousness [that] enables us to reach the limitless, the divine, Goddess or God.

Will Yoga Meditation Really Change My Life Book Review:

As one of the largest and most successful yoga-based retreat and education centers in the world, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Lenox, Massachusetts, attracts many of the leading teachers of yoga and Buddhist meditation to its annual retreat, East meets East: Yoga & Buddhism. In Will Yoga & Meditation Really Change My Life? Stephen Cope brings to the printed page the fascinating dialogue that he has fostered in these retreats. Cope asks participating teachers to share their Tales from the Path, stories of how the long-term practice of these ancient traditions has changed their lives. The result is an inspirational volume featuring 26 distinct voices telling their stories, how they became interested in these traditions, the teachers who inspired them, and how the practice of yoga and meditation has shaped their lives and perspectives. The contributors, many of whom are authors of well-known books on these topics, speak of their experiences as real people living in our complex world, complete with spouses, children, aging parents, financial demands, illnesses, injuries, and all of the ordinary aggravations of everyday life. Many of these teachers have studied and explored the practice of yoga or meditation over the course of 30 years and have been pivotal in creating retreat centers, styles of yoga, and teaching techniques that have contributed to the widespread popularity of these practices in mainstream culture. The stories of these teachers ask the questions, What is possible for me, in my life, right now? How can my practice of yoga and meditation help me lead a more satisfying life? These are questions on which every spiritual seeker and practitioner of yoga and meditation inevitably must reflect.

Stop Sabotaging Your Life Book Review:

In Stop Sabotaging Your Life: 3 Steps To Your Full Potential, acclaimed life coach Bruno LoGreco shares his simple path to achieving healthy mental and emotional independence.How many times have you caught yourself thinking something like this?: I'm not enough—good enough…smart enough…good looking enough…successful enough.… LoGreco says we sabotage our lives by focusing too much on being what others want us to be and do, and not spending enough time listening to our own hearts and minds. Some people try to find self-acceptance and contentment through counseling, but end up trapped on the therapy treadmill. Others try to go it alone, but still end up in a tiresome process of navel-gazing that never leads to personal fulfillment. LoGreco offers a three-step plan to help you reach your own potential: self-awareness (recognize what you have been doing, and why); rebuilding values (learn a different way to do things); and reach your full potential (identify opportunities and set meaningful goals). You will learn to leverage your strengths to stop chasing illusions and work toward achieving your dreams.LoGreco doesn't claim his book will cure everything that ails you. As he says, “There is no secret formula, no magic pill that will make you happy, productive, and successful. You must challenge your beliefs and take back control of your choices. Don't just think outside the box—break out of it altogether.”What clients and readers are saying about life coach, mentor, and motivational speaker Bruno LoGreco:“As a divorced mother of three, I've encountered many obstacles, mostly personal ones within myself. I wondered why I kept repeating the same patterns with the men I was dating and why it always ended badly, usually with me being hurt, and questioned what 'I' was doing wrong. Bruno taught me how to love myself again, how to respect myself and above all else, BELIEVE in myself.… Bruno saved me from my self-destructive patterns. Without his help, I wouldn't be the confident woman I am today. I am a better mother for that.”— Cristina“The world is filled with very successful executives who for decades focus every waking minute on professional accolades and professional development [only to] realize they haven't take the time out to focus on personal development in terms of a better balance in life, being in touch with their spiritual side and inner self, and even the fun side of life. That would describe me in the past.… I came across Bruno, and I knew he was the man. His personality exudes authenticity and geniality. The man simply knows his stuff, has this uncanny ability to read between the lines, and zero in instantly on underlying triggers. His structured approach steers you to address issues head on; challenges you to challenge yourself; opens your mind; helps you understand behaviors, experiences and patterns; gets you in touch with yourself; fuels a sense of purpose and passion; and escorts you to chart a new course to life. He never judges, but relentlessly encourages and empowers you. He's truly a brilliant, genuine and a humane person with an infectious enthusiasm to make you seize your inborn potential.” —Adrian“If I had to sum up my experience with Bruno in one word, it would be 'awakened.' Bruno helped me see life from a different perspective, which is what I needed, but most importantly, he showed me how to do that myself without being dependent on him.… Bruno got me to step outside of my comfort zone and do things I normally wouldn't have done otherwise, which is undoubtedly the key to growth.” —Blaine
