Zen priest and author Brad Warner answers questions about his book DON’T BE A JERK
By Publicity Admin
Soto Zen priest, punk bassist, and popular blogger Brad Warner answers some questions about his book Don’t Be a Jerk: And Other Practical Advice from Dogen, Japan's Greatest Zen Master, which offers a radical but reverent, modern spin on Dogen’s Treasury of the True Dharma Eye. Warner explains what “not being a jerk” actually meant in Dogen’s time, how easy it is to justify anything, and how you can tune in to your intuitive sense and be able to discern more carefully between what is right and what is wrong.

ESTABLISHING A HOME YOGA PRACTICE: An excerpt from THE ART AND BUSINESS OF TEACHING YOGA by Amy Ippoliti and Taro Smith, PhD
By Publicity Admin
Yoga in America is booming. A 2016 report by Yoga Journal and Yoga Alliance reported that 36.7 million people in the US practice yoga, up from 20.4 million in 2012, and 28 percent of all Americans have taken a yoga class at some point in their lives. As a result, the demand for yoga instructors has never been higher, and increasing numbers of practitioners are becoming inspired to teach — a career that can be as challenging as it is fulfilling. 

In their new book The Art and Business of Teaching Yoga: The Yoga Professional’s Guide to a Fulfilling Career, yoga “teacher of teachers” Amy Ippoliti and wellness entrepreneur Taro Smith, PhD, build on their popular “90 Minutes to Change the World” online course for yoga professionals to offer instructors a road map for creating a career that sustains and inspires not only themselves but their students as well.

DIRECT AND PROTECT by guest blogger Linda Kohanov, author of THE FIVE ROLES OF A MASTER HERDER
By Publicity Admin

Author and teacher, Linda Kohanov is a master of "the way of the horse," an experiential wisdom gained by studying the nonpredatory power of horses. In The Five Roles of a Master Herder: A Revolutionary Model for Socially Intelligent Leadership, she adapts these horse-inspired insights into useful tools for developing collaborative leadership and managing change. "Master Herders" of nomadic herding cultures developed a multifaceted, socially intelligent form of leadership combining the five roles of Dominant, Leader, Sentinel, Nurturer/Companion, and Predator. The fluid interplay of these roles allowed interspecies communities to move across vast landscapes, dealing with predators and changing climates, protecting and nurturing the herd while keeping massive, gregarious, often-aggressive animals together — without the benefit of fences and with very little reliance on restraints.

FORTY YEARS LATER by Dan Millman: An excerpt from Holly & Bruce Holbert’s THANK YOU, TEACHER
By Publicity Admin

What do rock stars, Nobel laureates, bestselling novelists, astronauts, and attorneys have in common? A teacher changed their lives. Like them, most of us can name a teacher who gave us not only good instruction but also confidence and drive. But, in the face of teachers being blamed for a variety of social and economic woes, teachers themselves can easily wonder whether they are making a difference in students’ lives. When veteran teacher Bruce Holbert asked himself this question, his wife, Holly, responded by sending letters to hundreds of people she had never met and had no reason to believe would respond, asking about teachers who mattered to them. She was overwhelmed by answers. Thank You, Teacher presents more than eighty of these up-close-and-personal stories. 

We hope you’ll enjoy this essay featured in the book, by New World Library author Dan Millman.
