Publisher's summary

Find balance, peace, and even wisdom by learning to steady the mind.

Stress and anxiety affect many of us as we struggle with work pressures, money worries, strained relationships, and the nagging sense that life may be running out of our control. But in the midst of chaos, we can find balance, peace, and wisdom, Easwaran says, if we learn to steady our minds. It’s a simple idea, but one that runs deep - a truly calm mind can weather any storm.

Eknath Easwaran, a respected teacher of meditation, offers a wealth of insights, real-life stories, and practical suggestions. He explains how to use a mantram (or mantra) to quiet the mind and how to slow down and stay in the present. With persistence, we can shed anxieties and resentments, strengthen our relationships, and stay kind and strong when faced with conflicts, supporting those around us.

We learn to calm the mind through practice - there’s no magic about it. We can’t control what life throws at us, but we can learn to access the courage, patience, and compassion that we need to ride the waves of life minute-by-minute, day-by-day.

This abridged audiobook contains the first three chapters of Strength in the Storm. The print book and ebook contain an additional three chapters, chapter introductions, stories, and workbook pages.
