Interweaving sacred traditions with modern nutritional and environmental science, Lotus of the Heart is a guidebook for living well in today’s challenging world. Arguing that what we do to others, we do to the planet and ourselves, Tracey Glover shows us how to release ourselves from the illusion of separation and see how we are truly connected in myriad ways—to our neighbors, our families, people who harvest the food on our plates, nonhuman animals, the environment, and life in its entirety. We learn the teachings and tools that yoga and other traditions offer us to return to our own most authentic selves, and find deep peace, health, and fullness for ourselves and all life.
Lotus of the Heart is a call to see the truth of our interconnectedness and a manual for living in harmony with this essential wisdom.
