Energizing. Enlightening. Funny.
She sounds like my best friend, sharing with me over lunch. She sounds authentic, not slick and self-promoting.
When I heard the results of the post-event study of the UT tower shooter -- that he'd had a psychic break because he hadn't been allowed to play as a child -- I was almost moved to tears by that tragic finding. I shudder to think what the current culture of ever more school and parent-scheduled events is doing to the next generation!
I suspect more women than men will purchase this book because of the topic. But men need to hear this stuff, too! These are uncomfortable topics for most (all?) of us, but that's part of why listening to this book is so powerful and life-changing. Why is it that the most important things in our culture are the ones we value the least?
One of the most helpful and important books I've encountered.
The 4 principles for living : 1. Abad (sp?). Extend respect and blessings to every being at every encounter. 2. Right livelihood. Serve the planet in your work; never work at a job or career that subjugates, oppresses, or destroys the planet or its creatures. 3. Shine. Express your creativity. 4. Simplicity and gratitude. Cultivate a sane relationship with money. Live simply, feel gratitude for what you have (and what money can't buy) and give as generously as you can to help those who are doing important work to save the planet.
The emotion and honesty in their voices. I love Andrew Harvey. I feel so blessed to have discovered him through audible.com.
The number one practice I will implement is to send love and blessings silently to every sentient being I encounter
Yes. I am listening a second time now.
My son and I both enjoyed the part about giving yourself treats -- and the story of the dog Cookie, who smiles in anticipation of getting a cookie.
n/a. Kathe Mazur has great comic timing and inflection, and she has a friendly voice that's easy to listen to. She's a perfect narrator for a Martha Beck book.
No. It helps to pause and think about each chapter and do the exercises.
With romance, redemption, witty repartee, and zombies, what's not to like? This prequel to PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES is superbly written and, at times, laugh-out-loud funny.The narrator, Katherine Kellgren, is absolutely brilliant. Loved it!
