Way to Be
Are You Ready to Change Your Life?
Wherever you are on your journey to self-discovery, personal transformation, and the art of being, the forty insights and transformative practices in this book can provide you with a comprehensive and practical guide for a heart centered approach to changing your life.
The authors, a yoga teacher and a psychotherapist, have blended their insight and experience to come up with 40 practices that create a holistic approach to transformation and positive change. Each unique practice, called a “Be,” is a simple and concise approach to change that will challenge the ingrained habits of thought and behavior that keep you stuck.
Each practice contains specific, unique meditations, journal prompts, and a plan for taking action in the world. Done consistently, these practices will help you to develop mindfulness, the new patterns of thought and action and new ways of relating to yourself and others that will literally transform your life.
There is no specific order of the practices; you can dive in any way you wish. The following are a couple of suggestions:
- You can do one practice a day and go through the whole book.
- You can do the same practice for forty days.
- You can open the book randomly and make that page the practice of the day.
- You can choose the practices which attract you the most, doing them until you feel inspired to choose another.
- You can pick a practice a week and share your process with someone or a group.
The options are endless, and they are all good.
Done consistently, these practices will awaken your authentic self by developing your mind, body, and spirit and teaching you to be at peace with the constant unfolding of who you truly are.
This is a unique book that will help many people. Drawing on their substantial experience and wisdom, the authors guide readers to self-discovery and awareness, offering novel insights and strategies that will allow them to find their own “Way To Be.”

Are you hungry for a window through your personal and our planet’s suffering? Are you ready to feel not just good, but powerful again or maybe for the first time? These times require a guide to set down the burdens we carry and find a lighter way of being. Tejpal and Shari Gootter are the guides that know the territory of resilience. Both of the authors have faced traumatic losses, betrayals and moved through the turbulent emotions that those life experiences engendered to not only find their healing through psychotherapy and yoga but to become compassionate teachers and guides for the rest of us. I’ve been rolling out a mat and meditating for more than thirty years, but this is the first primer I can recommend for all of us—those who are suffering and those who serve us in our pain. It’s simple and uplifting and requires no previous training in any mind-body practice. The only requirement is a willingness to try something different….
