YogaMass: Embodying Christ Consciousness bridges yogic principles and practices with Christian spirituality and worship as a path for bringing the whole self (body, mind, soul, and spirit) to the experience of spiritual awakening. The author, an ordained Episcopal priest, weaves together spiritual practices from different traditions with her own discovery that yoga’s ancient truths are complementary with Christian beliefs — taking one deeper into the spiritual life in ways that people of diverse faiths can embrace. Blending yogic practices with Christian spirituality and worship, the Reverend Gena Davis has co-created an exciting and powerful new practice of spiritual ritual and celebration called YogaMass that leads to embodying Christ Consciousness. On and off the yoga mat, this book points the way to discovering a whole-self spiritual experience and connecting with God through an awakened open mind and heart. “I loved this book! The author, the Reverend Gena Davis, shares the story of her amazing spiritual journey that culminates in the creation of the world’s first YogaMass service. This alone would make the book well worth reading, but throughout, she integrates sacred writings, stories, and poems from spiritual masters of western and eastern spirituality, all the while never losing sight of her own Christian heritage. It is a remarkable accomplishment. You will be blessed by this book and want to share it with others.” - The Reverend Dr. John K. Graham, president and CEO, Institute for Spirituality and Health at the Texas Medical Center, Houston “I am delighted and privileged to encourage those who seek to worship God with all that is within to pick up and digest this spiritual teaching presented by the Reverend Gena Davis. Gena has captured the importance of worshipping God with, as the Psalmist uttered, ‘all that is within me.’ I am fascinated by the interplay of yoga and liturgy within these pages, and find myself wanting to go deeper into both. I think the Reverend Davis is on to something that has been lacking in our Christian path and tradition. The interweaving of her personal narrative and the spiritual insights she gained through the study and practice of yoga unveils how God’s truth makes itself known through many different paths.” - The Reverend Dr. Richard Kleiman, retired Presbyterian pastor “Yoga is an exploration based on experiential processes. It is defined by our own internal truth! Making Yoga universal but deeply personal is something Gena Davis expresses so beautifully.” - Robert Boustany, Yoga instructor and master, and founder of Pralaya Yoga system

serieuze poging van een vrouw om scepsis, synisme en sigaretten te boven te komen op weg naar verlichting. Suzanne Morrison is een vijfentwintigjarige student die graag koffiedrinkt, rookt en biefstukken eet. Als ze op het punt staat naar New York te verhuizen, besluit ze dat het tijd wordt in contact te komen met haar spirituele kant. Vervolgens vertrekt ze naar Bali voor een tweemaandelijkse opleiding tot yogalerares. Terwijl ze haar koffer volstopt met heilige teksten en vegetarische snacks, visualiseert ze zichzelf in soepele, kraakheldere yogakleren, al mediterend naar verlichting. En natuurlijk zou ze verhuizen naar New York, alleen mooier, serener en spiritueler dan ooit. Maar het loopt niet helemaal zoals ze had gedacht. Eenmaal op Bali wordt Suzanne geconfronteerd met een mierenplaag, leraren die geloven dat hun keukenapparatuur bezeten is van geesten, en mede-yogi's die, iedere ochtend, een grote mok met hun eigen, warme urine drinken... Dit is het humoristische verhaal van de ambitieuze Suzanne Morrison, die toch echt een beetje te cynisch is om zomaar de wereld van yoga binnen te kunnen stappen. Maar tijdens haar verblijf op Bali verandert zij van een jong meisje met een irrationele doodsangst in een beduidend volwassener vrouw die, alhoewel ze er nog niet helemaal uit is, meer rust heeft gevonden. Ook heeft ze meer inzicht in deze chaotische wereld gekregen en... wordt ze uiteindelijk toch nog yogalerares. Een scherp, hilarisch, sympathiek en waargebeurd verhaal.

Today yoga is a thoroughly globalised phenomenon. Yoga has taken the world by storm and is even seeing renewed popularity in India. Both in India and abroad, adults, children and teenagers are practicing yoga in diverse settings; gyms, schools, home, work, yoga studios and temples. The yoga diaspora began well over a hundred years ago and we continue to see new manifestations and uses of Yoga in the modern world. As the first of its kind this collection draws together cutting edge scholarship in the field, focusing on the theory and practice of yoga in contemporary times. Offering a range of perspectives on yoga's contemporary manifestations, it maps the movement, development and consolidation of yoga in global settings. The collection features some of the most well-known authors within the field and newer voices. The contributions span a number of disciplines in the humanities, including, anthropology, Philosophy, Studies in Religion and Asian studies, offering a range of entry points to the issues involved in the study of the subject. As such, is of use to those involved in academic scholarship, as well as to the growing number of yoga practitioners who seek a deeper account of the origin and significance of the techniques and traditions they are engaging with. It will also-and perhaps most of all-speak to the growing numbers of 'scholar-practitioners' who straddle these two realms.
