The Poetry of Yoga

Two Volumes in Two Years… 300+ yogi poets from 19 countries!… The Poetry Of Yoga, is a massive undertaking of contemporary yogic poetry compiled and edited by yogi and spoken word poet HawaH. The first volume was released on 11.11.11 and the second volume on 12.12.12. Each volume serendipitously contains 333 pages of heart-wrenching poetry. The work was gathered from over 2,000 pages of online submissions. The Poetry Of Yoga is a modern day renaissance of Hafiz, Mirabai, and Rumi. It is an important platform for a new body of work that serves to expand the literary tradition of yoga to include the cultural perspective of the 21st century. The books are also simultaneously raising money for a non-profit organization, One Common Unity. Featured writers in the book include: Rod Stryker, Lilias Folan, Krishna Das, Sharon Gannon, Seane Corn, Joseph Goldstein, Sianna Sherman, Judith Lasater, Aadil Palkhivala, Douglas Brooks, MC Yogi, Chuck Miller, Shiva Rea, Erich Schiffman, Swami Ramananda, Doug Swenson, Leza Lowitz, Michael Stone, Ana Forrest, Tias Little, Angela Farmer, Dave Stringer and many more.
