Striking the perfect balance is an aspiration that most days can seem out of reach. And yet, in
The Body Beyond Knowing: Zen Mind, Yoga Body, yoga teacher Samantha Ostergaard and Zen priest Do-On Robert Thomas find perfect balance at the midway point between yoga and Zen, as each practice provides what the other lacks.

In the midst of our doubt and confusion and the general unpredictability of life, most of us rely on a set of core guiding principles to help us make decisions and take action—whether we realize it or not. Marc Lesser has dedicated himself to helping us understand five fundamental paradoxes which, when mastered, can offer us equanimity, even joy, as we strive to live meaningful lives in a world without guarantees. In Marc’s upcoming workshop Know Yourself, Forget Yourself based on his new book with the same title, he will cover with clarity and kindness these five paradoxes.
