Editorial Review

“Practical wisdom from Pema Chödrön and Thich Nhat Hanh share space in this anthology with fresh insight on the Occupy Wall Street movement, the art and practice of contemplative photography, the story of five courageous monks who take on the disastrous forces of a wildfire, and other highly personal accounts.”—Yoga International
