Pathways to Joy came to Mrs. WYA!'s attention through some yoga training but you don't have to be a practicing yogi to enjoy it. She simply found it to be one of the most inspiring and uplifting books that she's read. She is just now discovering Eckhart Tolle and there are a lot of overlapping themes between the two (even though Swami Vivekananda brought his teachings to the West around the turn of the last century).
