Life cannot be without purpose.

When you look closely, you see how it is all connected; how the fabric of reality is woven together perfectly on the loom of everything.

Somehow, the pattern of the universe speaks to all of your senses. As you take it in, the truth emerges. You belong here.

A smile breaks across your lips. You realize the beauty that moves through you, within you.

This meditation began the day you were born. And now we turn another page.

Through a series of lyrical recitations, Dallas-based meditation studio leader Rachel Fox channels her practice into shared confirmations of love and purpose. Meditations on Being pulls readers through life's bittersweet journeys, one poem at a time, offering the reader a chance to pause, to reflect, and to breathe in the midst of the chaos of life.

About the Author

Rachel Fox has been a poet for as long as she can remember. Born a Southern woman, she speaks with a soft voice guided by grace. Life has given her the kindness of a big, beautiful family, and the joy of true love. Dallas, TX has become the home of her heart's work, and her meditation studio. From this place of privilege, she gives what she has. Her prayers have become her practice, which has become her art. It is her hope that her meditations resonate as yours, too.

Nevertheless, UPB provides ship-to-home service.

Unless and until we move our on-line fulfillment team to different premises, everything you purchase from us ships from warehouses outside of Berkeley.

Much of what we used to carry on store shelves is available, except for very expensive books, used books, and titles fallen between printings.

Certain limitations apply:

  • Sometimes we may have to split an order because books are stocked at different warehouses.
  • Thus, we may remove items from a multi-book order and ask you to resubmit them on a separate order.
  • Many high demand titles ship fairly quickly. Most other titles travel from back east, adding 2 to 5 days to delivery
  • Although we love you in Canada, Latin America, and else where, U.S. orders only.
  • Certain publishers give us low merchant discounts on certain titles, sometimes no discount at all. To be honest, we've had to raise prices on these, ranging from 5% to 30% above list.

You can also purchase eBooks and audio books through us. Distributed by Hummingbird, they include publications from the major trade publishers. Just access the menu link or the sidebar image above.

We greatly appreciate your support of the store with your book orders. Need a book without our current shopping limitations? We recommend Bookshop. View our recommendations on Bookshop, then search for whatever book you'd like.

Should you have questions, email us via our contact form. Since none of are keeping regular hours, it may take a day to get back with you.
