Do This Now: Walking Meditation
First, stand tall and feel the weight of your body supported by the floor. Clasp your hands in front or in back of you. Slowly lift one foot and place it on the ground; then the other. Stay with the simple focus on the foot as it moves, and on the sensations of the whole body in the process of walking. Notice. Enjoy.

Your Summer Reading List
Recommendations from Kripalu Faculty and Staff

This is the season when we give ourselves permission to read for pure pleasure. Maybe it’s a holdover from back when June meant “no more pencils, no more books”—time to swap out the algebra textbook for a juicy Danielle Steele novel. We asked Kripalu staff and faculty to share a few of their favorites to add to your summer reading list. Their recommendations run the gamut from adventure to self-discovery to neuroscience, from ancient texts to new novels. So string up the hammock or spread a blanket on the grass, make a pitcher of lemonade (or a cup of tulsi tea), and crack open one of these great books.

Browse the reading list.

The Choice of an Open Heart, by Maria Sirois
There are moments in life when the forces that be hit us over the head and say, “Here. Now. Pay attention. This is important.” Infants arrive, towers fall, homes burn, lost ones return, illness erupts, children die—such moments carry with them a potency and a possibility.
