Michael Stone (1974-2017) was a beloved author and teacher of yoga and Buddhism. Many of us at Shambhala Publications had the great pleasure of working with him and experiencing his brilliant mind and universal kindheartedness. He was truly a modern day bodhisattva, transforming his own suffering and the suffering of the world into vital teachings for a broad range of communities and practitioners. Michael voraciously explored the depths of the Eastern traditions, always going back to the root teachings, and returned with fresh insights on how ancient wisdom could be applied in modern life. We will miss his living presence and are honored to be working on publishing some of the works he had completed before his untimely death.
September is National Yoga Month!
To celebrate, we will be sending a passage, prompt, or practice from one of our many yoga books every week through the end of the year.
