About the Book

The Path of Love is a way of living where love is the foundation of every thought and action—a way of being taught and embodied by Swami Kripalu. In a book that is as accessible as it is inspirational, Anandamai Charlyn integrates her life stories with the teaching stories of Swami Kripalu to provide powerful insight and transformative practices for walking this path. Twelve chapters lead you through the profound teachings of the Path of Love, including lessons on truth, service, self-observation, struggle, and compassion. The book gently guides you to discover your stories and your truth and provides practical tools and exercises to integrate these practices into your life and your yoga and meditation classes. “To read Walking the Path of Love is to be swept up in a blanket of generosity and grace …. If you want to know the stories of real-life alchemy and how to tap into the best of what is possible for you, let Charlyn be your guide. The trail that she illuminates in this book leads us home to ourselves, to each other, and to the love waiting to hold us.” —Karlee Fain, Celebrity Coach, Author, & Kripalu Resident “This is a wonderful, inspirational, and practical guide for keeping the timeless teachings of Swami Kripalu alive in your life …. Love and devotion shine through this book and will awaken their power in your life.” —Kamini Desai, PhD, Executive Director, Amrit Yoga Institute “What you are holding in your hand is a journey into your heart. Walking the Path of Love is the best title as that is exactly what you will do when reading this book.” —Erin Casperson, Dean, Kripalu School of Ayurveda “A guidebook for the soul. Anandamai Charlyn Reihman has crafted an essential, practical, and loving companion for anyone ready (or not) to have their life changed forever by yoga and the inspiring teachings of Swami Kripalu.” —Jurian Hughes, Senior Faculty Member, Kripalu School of Yoga
