The Green Devotional

Active Prayers for a Healthy Planet

By Karen Speerstra, Tara Springett
Our planet, our home, is in crisis plain and simple and this collection of quotes, poems, essays, and prayers will inspire all to actively reverse the manmade cause of global warming, stem the tide of environmental destruction, and to reconnect to the good earth. Short essays of topical interest introduce each of the eight sections of this book, and the 250 voices inside, most of them contemporary, began to harmonize together as they seem to call out for their own canonical structure -- one bounded by the ancient elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water. This collection of voices is like a "green book of devotional hours," reminiscent of the Books of Hours medieval people used to hold in their palms. It was called "a cathedral in your hands." And like that medieval book, The Green Devotional reminds us that we are connected to something broader and wiser than ourselves. Included are selections from such people as Rachel Carson, Cornel West, Bill McKibben, Alice Walker, Sue Monk Kidd, Dean Koontz, Barbara Kingsolver, Daniel Pinchbeck, Arundhati Roy and many others. The Green Devotional ends with a section of "Closing Prayers" that prepare us no just to go to sleep but to rest up for another day of passionate action. Printed on 100% recycled paper.

Make Every Move a Meditation

By

Grow by Using Exercise as Meditation

Praise for her past work includes “A great narrative on how moving your body can actually transform your brain!”—Richard C. Davis, PhD, BCN, Psychologist and Brain Trainer

#1 New Release in Sports Health & Safety, Other Eastern Religions & Sacred Texts, Cycling, Sports Psychology, Walking, and Theravada Buddhism

Award-winning Finalist in the “Health: Diet & Exercise” category of the 2022 International Book Awards 

In Make Every Move a Meditation, learn how to find freedom using the mind-body connection as you transform movement into a powerful practice of mindful movement.

Exercise can be meditation. What do you think of when you hear the word meditation? A quiet room filled with monks? An Instagram influencer? What about moving meditation? Yoga? Tai Chi? For too long, meditation in books has focused on specific periods of meditation, rather than mediation through fitness or daily activities. What if lifting weights, dancing with your love, or walking across a room counted? What if you could use exercise as meditation? What if you could make every move a meditation?

Let's combine the two. In Make Every Move a Meditation, award-winning author, meditation leader, and mental health advocate Nita Sweeney shows us fitness can be mindfulness. She teaches us how to bring meditation and mindfulness into any activity by incorporating centuries-old techniques. Studies show that both exercise and meditation reduce anxiety, stabilize blood pressure, improve mood and cognition, and lead to a deeper self-relationship and wisdom. Movement is medicine, and meditation is medicine.

Inside Make Every Move a Meditation, you’ll learn to:

  • Turn exercise into a meditation tool
  • Make any activity a mindful practice
  • Enjoy the benefits of meditation while getting fit

If you like meditation books and best sellers such as Think Like a Monk, Practicing Mindfulness, or Breath, you’ll love Make Every Move a Meditation.
