  • Author Ruth Lauer-Manenti

    Ruth Lauer-Manenti has written three books: An Offering of Leaves, Sweeping the Dust, and Fell In Her Hands, all published by Lantern. The first two are collections of short stories given as examples to teach yoga philosophy, that originated in the classroom and were then edited for reading. The last book Fell In Her Hands is a novel that tells a story of several characters seeking enlightenment through the human experience of the ups and downs of life. The novel is inspired by The Yoga Sutra of Maharishi Patanjali: a scripture written in Sanskrit more than 2000 years ago.

For many years at the Jivamukti Yoga School in New York City and throughout the country, popular and highly regarded yoga teacher Ruth Lauer-Manenti (affectionately known as “Lady Ruth”) has been offering her students “dharma talks”—stories from her life that accompany her classes and represent the yogic commitments to ahimsa (non-violence), compassion, and service. Some of these talks have now been collected in a book, many of them accompanied by a reading from classic Hindu texts, such as The Bhagavad Gita, The Hatha Yoga Pradipika, and The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Composed with humor and sensitivity, An Offering of Leaves is the perfect gift for the aspiring yoga practitioner and any spiritual seeker wanting to live with thoughtfulness and integrity.
