In this very practical book, Easwaran shows you how to quieten the agitation in your mind so that you can weather any storm.
You learn to calm the mind through practice – there’s no magic about it. You already have immense inner resources for dealing with what life throws at you – but you have to learn how to release them.
This book contains six chapters on themes such as living in the present, freeing yourself from worry and resentment, nourishing the mind, and using your resources to make a better world. Each chapter also includes:
- An introduction by Christine Easwaran, placing Easwaran’s wisdom into a contemporary context
- Real-life stories showing how people are using these skills and benefiting from them today
- A practical worksheet with key ideas, points to practice, and inspiration
The audiobook is abridged: it contains the first three chapters (the essays by Easwaran), but omits Christine Easwaran’s introduction to the book and to each chapter, the real-life stories, the worksheet and points to practice, and the final three chapters of the book. It is read by Paul Bazely, a professional actor and longtime student of Easwaran.
