Teachings on Love by Thich Nhat Hanh will be the most gentle of the books, the easiest to read. I love Thay's teachings and do not doubt that I will adore this book, whether I read it with another person or I read it on my own. He has written so many wonderful books and I've never been disappointed by a one. Although after a while his lessons become redundant there are some truths that need to be repeated. I have no doubt that the teachings contained within this book will be so full of compassion and the deepest, most pure kind of love, that it would be a shame for me to have this book and not read it before I die.The Yoga of Breath: A Step-by-Step Guide to Pranayama by Richard Rosen is one of the few books available about pranayama yoga, a part of the yoga practice that focuses on breath. This a beginner's guide to pranayama so even for those who are completely unfamiliar with how to incorporate breathing into your yoga practice, this book is an excellent starting place. I've been wanting to spend time with breath work and am curious to read this book to see what insight it will offer. To appreciate the benefit of breathing, stop now and breathe deeply three times and then see how you feel. It is amazing the power we have in our own breath and a shame how often we forget this power in our own lives.
So these are the choices for this round and since I want to start one of these by 1 July I guess there is a time limit on voicing an interesting in reading along with me. I hope someone will join me. I love reading these deeply spiritual books but I love discussing them as well.
