Awake in the World: An Interview with Michael Stone
Michael Stone is not your average yoga teacher...or Buddhist...or psychotherapist. He sees spiritual practice taking place not just on yoga mats or on retreats, but in the streets with the occupy movement. Dave Mazza speaks with Stone about his seeking the intersection of committed spiritual practice and social action, as explored in his latest book, Awake in the World: Teachings from Yoga & Buddhism for Living an Engaged Life. Stone teaches at Toronto's Centre of Gravity and is the author of several books. On March 9, he will be speaking at Portland's Yoga Space Studio about the pivotal role for yoga and Buddhist practice in serving the economic and ecological crisis now unfolding and offering workshops on March 10 and 11.
