Yoga and the Dark Night of the Soul: The Soul's Journey to Sacred Love by Simon Hass
Yoga and the Dark Night of the Soul is about the soul's journey from fear, lamentation and confusion to sacred love. Based on the timeless teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, this contemporary guide to yoga's ancient wisdom shows us how to overcome life's greatest challenges, how to follow our life purpose, how to engage our heart in our yoga practice, and how to write our life story with love and compassion.
“Based on the teachings of the Baghavad Gita, Simon Haas brings the wisdom of this ancient text to life, making it relevant for our own contemporary lives and times. I was recommended to read this at a time when I was facing my own ‘dark night of the soul’. I was riveted and found the revelations life-changing. Enabling you to transform the struggle and challenges you may be facing to finding your true nature and purpose, this book will truly liberate you and lead you to the path of freedom and growth. More than just about yoga on the mat, this is about bringing the true spirit of yoga and sacred love back into your daily life. Simply beautiful.” Comment reviewing on Amazon by PerryJ67

"From a little girl at Heathrow airport and a dog on the Yorkshire Moors, to holy men in crematoriums and Indian monkeys, we hear inspiring stories sure to open our hearts and minds in learning to appreciate the potential power in darkness to rewrite our own life stories from ones of fear and confusion into those of love and compassion."

"This is an authoritative, metaphysical book on yoga that takes one beyond the needs of the body and mind and situates one in spiritual luminescence. What more can a discerning reader ask for?"
