Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Adams, who has written on domestic violence and animal rights (e.g., The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory), intends to demonstrate that vegetarian consciousness is inseparable from spiritual practice--even though people frequently practice vegetarianism without mystical or religious grounding and engage in spiritual seeking without following a vegetarian diet. In the end, she fails to prove anything except how these practices work for her. The author describes the experiences that led her to vegetarianism, yoga, meditation, breath awareness, and keeping a journal and then explores each practice, offering exercises and further reading. She also lists the obstacles that vegetarians and spiritual seekers face when they "cross over." Although she offers thoughtful discussions of such generic topics as resistance to change, the imprecision of the writing reveals faulty thinking and the structure lacks coherence. Not recommended.--Elizabeth C. Stewart, Portland, ME Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\

    Building Bridges Between Vegetarianism and Spirituality

    To spiritual seekers, Adams commends vegetarianism as a spiritual discipline that enriches their other practices by extending them into the external world as an effective form of nonviolence. In the language of Eastern spirituality, this extension into the world is called 'karma yoga,' the path of pursuing spiritual growth by working to alleviate the suffering of others. 'Vegetarianism is not a 'should' imposed by the inner judge,' Adams continues, 'but an expression of the love we bring to ourselves.' If all life is one, as the spiritual disciplines teach, we cannot truly love ourselves without also loving others. For vegetarians and animal advocates, Adams recommends such spiritual practices as meditation, yoga, journaling, and working with dreams, all of which are devoid of dogma and can be practiced in the context of any religion or none. These spiritual exercises are simple, straightforward, and intended to fit comfortably into a busy day. Much of The Inner Art of Vegetarianism, which is delightfully free of jargon, is devoted to practical advice on how to get started with each discipline; and an entire chapter is devoted to vegetarian cooking as a form of meditation. In language that is gentle and graceful, Carol Adams shows us how to be more effective in easing the suffering of others by engaging our own, and how to better cope with our own suffering by engaging the suffering of animals. 'Together,' she tells us, 'vegetarianism and spiritual practice say, 'I will not be violent to myself or others. I cultivate nonviolence within myself because I see myself conected to others.'' In this way, we build a bridge within ourselves; we integrate our own healing with our work to heal the world; we become whole; and because of us, the world becomes a little less cruel.

    Inner Art of Vegetarianism: Spiritual Practices for Body and Soul

    Author of The Sexual Politics of Meat, Adams here explores the intersection of vegetarianism and spiritual practice. Lumping together meditation, yoga, dreamwork, journal keeping and breath awareness under the rubric of ¿spiritual practice,¿ she argues that each of these can be extended so as to acknowledge the effects of meat eating on individual and planetary health and animal welfare. Drawing on her background experiences as yoga practitioner, social activist, mother and cook, Adams outlines meditations, yoga postures and other practical exercises to promote relaxation and awareness. Her stated goal is to assist readers in strengthening their commitment to vegetarianism and to a different world view.

    Inner Art of Vegetarianism: Spiritual Practices for Body and Soul

    After spending two decades practicing yoga and vegetarianism, this Dallas-area author has created a book detailing how her food selection is embedded in spirituality. While the book targets vegetarians, even a meat eater might enjoy its insight. And, as Ms. Adams suggests, 'it is also for spiritual seekers interested in practicing vegetarianism.' The book details how readers can use journal writing, meditation and cooking to reach a level of the subconscious mind previously reserved for spiritual practitioners.
