A practical approach to Zen Buddhism applicable to daily life. It is a condensed version of his books and the author’s voice is in-keeping with the message.

Many of us have health coaches or aspire to improve our health. Myss addresses health as a return to mind , body , spirit. The misstep we have taken as a society has been to include mind, body and to simply ignore the spirit aspect of our overall health. A return to health must include all three, and Myss speaks clearly to this need.
There are numerous books on wellness, whole health and countless fabrications on getting fit , slim or eating right.( Dr. Andrew Weil stands out).. Few examine health as a construct of spirit and mind health and healing as well as Myss. In the 80's, the Yale surgeon Bernie Seigal wrote of love and miracles and health and his' I Can' cancer groups became foundational to wellness. In the 90's, author and cardiologist, Dean Ornish (Eat More , Weigh Less) was instrumental in returning our attention to the connection of health, creating community and emotional support. In this ever evolving topic of health, I can think of no one as fundamentally conscious of the complexities of responding to mind , body spirit than Myss and her writings on health and healing, and turning our attention to Grace.
