Grateful for the Color Blue
Grateful for the Color Blue: Surviving the Loss of An Adult Child is her memoir, a page-turning account of her journey through the death of her adult son.
“When Rob was dying, I looked everywhere for a book written by parents who had lost their adult child. I hoped to find solace in the company of another who knew the horror of what we were going through. I longed for someone who could look into my soul, know the intensity of my experience, and be compassionate. I found nothing.
“I decided to write my memoir as an outreach to those who need to know they are not alone in their loss, that someone out there understands on a deep level and offers compassion and support. The five-star reviews and thanks I receive from readers let me know the book is making a difference.”

ANTHONY DE MELLO
Awareness awakens you to the truth that you possess everything you need right now to be happy and fulfilled.
You see life differently because you are different. You respond to people and situations differently. You see things you have never seen before. Beautiful things. You're much more energetic, much more alive. When you finally awake, you don't try to make good things happen; they just happen. You understand suddenly that everything that happens to you is good. You understand that all is well, even at times when things seem a mess. You discover that there is a loving force surrounding you at all times that is always within reach, always right here in your midst, making your life meaningful and beautiful and rich.
It is time to address the dissonance between the often superficial way yoga is currently being practiced and the depth of yoga’s ancient universal spiritual teachings. In this clarion call to action, Jivana Heyman offers a blueprint for cultivating a practice based in the ancient wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras in service of those experiencing exclusion and oppression.
Through pose sequences, practice prompts such as “Embracing Failure,” and stories from yoga teachers who are implementing seva in their classes, Heyman shows you what it means to serve, how to serve, and how to promote inclusivity through your service. Our job, says Heyman, is not to clear our mind through yoga practice, but rather to expand it so widely that it can embrace the entire universe.
Tuning the Student Mind
How can we rethink teaching practices to include and engage the whole student? What would student experience look like if we integrated silence and feeling with empirical analysis? Tuning the Student Mind is the story of one teacher’s attempt to answer these questions by creating an innovative college course that marries the spiritual and the theoretical, integrating meditation and self-reflection with more conventional academic curriculum. The book follows Molly Beauregard and her students on their intellectual and spiritual journey over the course of a semester in her class, “Consciousness, Creativity, and Identity.” Interweaving personal stories, student writing, and Beauregard’s responses, along with recommendations for further reading and a research appendix, it makes the case for the transformative power of consciousness-centered education. Written in a warm, engaging voice that reflects Beauregard’s teaching style, Tuning the Student Mind provides an accessible, step-by-step template for other educators, while inviting readers more broadly to reconnect with the joy of learning in and beyond the classroom.
You're Not Listening
At work, we're taught to lead the conversation.On social media, we shape our personal narratives.At parties, we talk over one another. So do our politicians.We're not listening. And no one is listening to us.Despite living in a world where technology allows constant digital communication and opportunities to connect, it seems no one is really listening or even knows how. And it’s making us lonelier, more isolated, and less tolerant than ever before. A listener by trade, New York Times contributor Kate Murphy wanted to know how we got here.
