As civilization approaches technological singularity, what role will God play? In this brilliant new treatise, Wilbur lays out how religions need to adjust to remain relevant. Using Buddhism as an example, he explains how faith and reason—that is, “waking up” and “growing up”—must coalesce in order for humanity to truly evolve. Reading this book opens up your third eye. - Jason

Yoga teacher Jessamyn Stanley is a woman of color, a woman of size, and a woman who loves to swear. If you are one of the 250,000 people who follow her on social media, you already know how incredible she is—bold, beautiful, sensual, and hella flexible. Stanley has channeled all of this goodness and much more into Every Body Yoga, a how-to guide for beginners that shows that not only is yoga for every body type, but that what is important is how it makes you feel, not how you look in your yoga pants. - S.B.

Sharon Salzberg has been teaching lovingkindness (metta) meditation for decades. In short, easy-to-read chapters on how to be more loving, she manages to teach without preaching. She juxtaposes practical ways to manage everyday disturbances with parabolic short stories, making this the sort of book you can pick up at any time and open to any page for a quick bit of wisdom. Highly recommended for fans of The Book of Joy. - Jason
