EcoYogaTherapy: Yoga With Nature. A guide to exploring your inner world through nature is the first book in a series of books and online courses on the topic of EcoYogaTherapy.
EcoYogaTherapy is the weaving together of Applied Eco-Psychology and Yoga; two fields that have a lot of the same flowers.
Over the years of training, studying and working in Eco-Pyschology I began to see repeats of how Yoga practitioners were struggling to reconcile their practices with Nature. Many practitioners knew that Nature was valuable to their well being but didn't know how to incorporate it in an integral and healthy way as they bumped up against some of the stories within yoga and our western culture.
EcoYogaTherapy is a bridge between these two amazing ways of being; from working with permission within one's teachings, classes or personal practice to exploring a richer world that embraces more than 50 senses instead of withdrawing.
More, now than ever, in our world we have to be able to be in our bodies, connected with Nature and our nature, if we are going to heal the disconnect. This book is a gentle guide...but like anything you must actually do the work presented for it's value to be understood. Simply reading it is not enough.
EcoYogaTherapy: Yoga With Nature.
I like transparency. I think it's important to know the reasons for decisions that are made. It may be less convient to buy from my website than from Amazon, but to me, they pros outweigh a little inconvience.
Here are the reasons that I chose to print my book locally;
* I get to support a local family that is awesome and not some giant organization that pays & treats it's employees unjustly,
* the book is printed on recycled paper with a cover that has no plastic and a coil that can be recycled,
* my book pays me a little bit less but offers so much more to others and our environment ( see below for details).
For those of you that want a discount, here's what you need to know (based on a price of $31.99):
To print the book locally it costs $26.32 (with tax), minus paypal fees of $1.29 - $1.75 (depending on what country it's purchased from), leaving me with anywhere from $4.38 - $3.92 per book. I know, it's a get rich scheme! And of course, shipping is it's own thang.
To print the book on Amazon it gets a little more interesting.
Although the book only costs $13.24 to print (not recycled paper or plastic free cover), Amazon takes a fee of $12.80 (yes, that's on top of printing), leaving me with $5.95. In this case Amazon will 'make' $26.04 and I'd rather have that go to some one local. It's really only a difference of $0.28 for you.
S0 there's the math in all it's glory!
