Yasodhara Ashram’s Swami Radhananda launching new book

The cover of Swami Radhananda's new book.

While there may not seem to be much connection between a ripening apricot and the practice of yoga, a new book by the spiritual director of Yasodhara Ashram makes clear the link between the two.

Living the Practice: Collected Writings on the Transformative Potential of Yoga draws on Swami Radhananda’s 30 years as a yoga teacher and her rich experiences as a mother and educator. She presents yoga not as the esoteric art of a few flexible people, but as an everyday spiritual practice that can play a role in anyone’s life — at a business meeting, while driving in traffic, cooking or gardening.

“An ordinary life infused with practice becomes a meaningful life,” said Radha-nanda.

Director of the ashram since 1993, Radhananda has overseen its recent efforts to receive carbon-neutral certification by 2013 — in time for its 50th anniversary. Living the Practice will available both in paper and digital format and is printed on 100 per cent post-consumer-waste recycled paper.

Join the community in launching the new title on April 29 at 2 p.m. at Yasodhara Ashram, at the end of Walker’s Landing Road near the Kootenay Bay ferry terminal. Radhananda will read from the book and there will be group discussions, followed by tea. All are welcome.

For more information, visit radhananda.org or call 1-800-661-8711. To order the book, visit the Timeless Books website, www.timeless.org.
