J Jennifer Matthews works as a counselor in the patched and fraying tapestry of homeless services in Boston, United States. She has worked in hospitals, drop-in centers and homeless shelters. The clients known to these baroque establishments are some of the most courageous and inspiring people she has met.
Driven by the philosopher's desire to say something "wise" and the healer's desperation to help, J Jennifer undertook an encyclopedic study of self-help, psychology, and the wisdom traditions. She got calmer, got happier and started to notice a trend: it all seemed to point to the existence of a mysterious "dimension" of experience which can be accessed simply by resting in the present moment. This "mysterious dimension" is the simplicity and beauty of life, which has become foreign to us because we ignore it in fixated pursuit of pleasant times in the future or past, outrageous fantasies and competitive identities.
