Publisher's Summary

As we open up to life and love and each other, as we awaken from our dream of separation, we encounter not just the bliss of existence, but its pain, too; not only life's ecstasy, but also its agony. Healing doesn't always feel good or comfortable or even "spiritual", for we are inevitably forced to confront our shadows, fears, and deepest longings - those secret parts of ourselves that we have denied, repressed, or deemed "negative" and unworthy of our love. How can we find the calm in the midst of the storm? How can we rest, even as the ground falls? Falling in Love with Where You Are invites you to discover a deep yes to your life, no matter what you are going through; to see crisis as an opportunity to heal, pain as an intelligent messenger, and your imperfections as perfectly placed. Through his prose and poetry, Jeff Foster will guide, provoke, encourage, and inspire you on your lonely, joyful, and sometimes exhausting journey to the home you never, ever left: the present moment.

More descriptive than prescriptive.

Really didn't do much to explain how to get there. Mostly it seemed to covey a sense of the state but seemed to suggest just being like that even if you weren't feeling it.

Brilliant

Loved this wonderful book by Jeff Foster, a beautiful window on radical truth. Shame about the narrator though.

Simply Amazing, Speechless, Thank You Jeff

This book has saved what I thought was a treacherous path of life. Jeff’s words remind me of the fleeting moments that life is. His words are so elegantly out, so precise, so beautifully articulated. A man of true authentic wisdom, I recommend this book to all. Awaken within you a fire that keeps burning for life itself, in all its glory, in all its pain, in all its joy, read this book! Xxx
