8 Great Father's Day Book Ideas for The Yoga Daddy

by Elsie on June 11, 2010

I reached out to the Yogi Daddy of the household to give me some good ideas for Father’s Day gifts for other Yoga Papas. This will be a series of posts featuring great products to share with you, at least from the male in this yoga family 😉

We begin with books!

Here are some that he shared with me. I’ve simply put links (affiliate links) to the books themselves and added the Amazon.com product decription or review 😀

If YOU have some books that you’d think would be great for the Yogi Dad, add them to the comments section! Do you own any of the books below? If you do share your thoughts 😀

The Elder Wisdom CircleThe Elder Wisdom Circle Guide for a Meaningful Life

Inspired by his grandmother, Meckelson, a former worker in the financial services industry, founded the Elder Wisdom Circle in 2001. Now nationwide, this group comprises volunteers aged 60–100 who endeavor to provide assistance to younger people who ask questions through a Web site. Meckelson and L.A. Times staff writer Haithman have divided representative correspondence into such subjects as careers, sibling issues and death. Many engaging and thoughtful questions and responses are recounted. Although one respondent recommends trusting in God, the circle members are by no means all believers and are required to refrain from proselytizing. The elders are not afraid to discuss nontraditional family structures and also humanely and appropriately deal with inquiries about sexuality. Anyone looking for empathy and practical strategies for overcoming difficulties from those who have been there will profit from this light-hearted guide and be inspired to visit the Web site, elderwisdomcircle.org.(Oct. 30) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Zen Body Beginner's MindZen Body Beginner’s Mind

A respected Zen master in Japan and founder of the San Francisco Zen Center, Shunryu Suzuki has blazed a path in American Buddhism like few others. He is the master who climbs down from the pages of the koan books and answers your questions face to face. If not face to face, you can at least find the answers as recorded in Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind, a transcription of juicy excerpts from his lectures. From diverse topics such as transience of the world, sudden enlightenment, and the nuts and bolts of meditation, Suzuki always returns to the idea of beginner’s mind, a recognition that our original nature is our true nature. With beginner’s mind, we dedicate ourselves to sincere practice, without the thought of gaining anything special. Day to day life becomes our Zen training, and we discover that “to study Buddhism is to study ourselves.” And to know our true selves is to be enlightened. –Brian Bruya –This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The Male Herbal

Until herbalist James Green introduced THE MALE HERBAL more than 15 years ago, there was virtually no information about using herbs specifically in men’s health. With sensitivity toward men’s reluctance to focus on health matters, Green’s trusted advice and wisdom is as vital today as it was then. He outlines the medicinal uses of scores of herbs for male-specific issues, while emphasizing prevention and health rather than illness. Introducing a new constitutional model, the revised MALE HERBAL provides every man with a personalized plan geared to his individual body type, lifestyle, and needs

The Essential RumiThe Essential RumiWalden Walden

First published in 1854, Henry David Thoreau”s groundbreaking book has influenced generations of readers and continues to inspire and inform anyone with an open mind and a love of nature. With Bill McKibben providing a newly revised Introduction and helpful annotations that place Thoreau firmly in his role as cultural and spiritual seer, this beautiful edition of Walden for the new millennium is more accessible and relevant than ever.

A Sand County AlmanacA Sand County Almanac- Outdoor Essays and Reflections

Published in 1949, shortly after the author’s death, A Sand County Almanac is a classic of nature writing, widely cited as one of the most influential nature books ever published. Writing from the vantage of his summer shack along the banks of the Wisconsin River, Leopold mixes essay, polemic, and memoir in his book’s pages. In one famous episode, he writes of killing a female wolf early in his career as a forest ranger, coming upon his victim just as she was dying, “in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes…. I was young then, and full of trigger-itch; I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, no wolves would mean hunters’ paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view.” Leopold’s road-to-Damascus change of view would find its fruit some years later in his so-called land ethic, in which he held that nothing that disturbs the balance of nature is right. Much of Almanac elaborates on this basic premise, as well as on Leopold’s view that it is something of a human duty to preserve as much wild land as possible, as a kind of bank for the biological future of all species. Beautifully written, quiet, and elegant, Leopold’s book deserves continued study and discussion today. –Gregory McNamee –This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Autobiography of a Yogi

Autobiography Of A Yogi (includes bonus CD)

Autobiography of a Yogi is at once a beautifully written account of an exceptional life and a profound introduction to the ancient science of Yoga and its time-honored tradition of meditation. This acclaimed autobiography presents a fascinating portrait of one of the great spiritual figures of our time. With engaging candor, eloquence, and wit, Paramahansa Yogananda tells the inspiring chronicle of his life: the experiences of his remarkable childhood, encounter with many saints and sages during his youthful search throughout India for an illumined teacher, ten years of training in the hermitage of a revered yoga master, and the thirty years that he lived and taught in America. Also recorded here are his meetings with Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Luther Burbank, the Catholic stigmatist Therese Neumann, and other celebrated spiritual personalities of East and West. The author clearly explains the subtle but definite laws behind both the ordinary events of everyday life and the extraordinary events commonly termed miracles. His absorbing life story becomes the background for a penetrating and unforgettable look at the ultimate mysteries of human existence

Of Wolves and Men

Of Wolves and Men

“The wolf exerts a powerful influence on the human imagination. It takes your stare and turns it back on you.” So Barry Lopez writes in his first major work of nonfiction, a careful study of the way that wolves and humans have interacted over centuries, and the way that the wolf has become so central to our thinking about animals. Drawing on considerable personal experience with wolves and on an astonishing range of literature, Lopez argues for the necessity of wolves in the world, which would be much poorer without their howl. Thanks in part to the influence of this essential book about Canis lupus, first published in 1978, we know a great deal more about wolves and are all the better prepared to assure their protection. –This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Maybe you could space it out better?

I believe what you wrote was very logical. But, what about this?
what if you added a little content? I am not saying your content is not
solid., but suppose you added a post title that makes people
want more? I mean 8 Great Father’s Day Book Ideas for The
Yoga Daddy | Elsie’s Yoga Kula is kinda boring.
You could look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they write post headlines to get viewers to open the
links. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to
get people excited about what you’ve got to say.

Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
