wise help for any person intending to live more skilfully
on 3 January 2008
This book encourages gentle transformation.
It sows the seeds for a journey of creative engagement with those habits of which we are so often unaware, and that influence and predispose us to react rather than to act in our lives.
Martine suggests that through habit people tend to aquire patterns of behaviour, some positive and some negative. By initiating meditation as a positive habit she skilfully encourages the concentration and enquiry that develop through it towards recovering a fresh sense of seeing. She shows how an awareness of our own grasping habits with their negative impact can, with patience, gradually dissolve, creating spaciousness and allowing opening of fresh possibilities.
This is a practical handbook. By exploring and putting into practise her simple step-by-step suggestions, the reader is empowered through Martine to change and grow.
Personally I have found this book invaluable and recommend it highly.
