Review

"Among the current spate of books on mindfulness, Bays's distinguishes itself with 53 simple practices tested through 20 years at the Great Vow Monastery in Oregon. [She] brings gentle compassion to the task of integrating mindfulness into a busy life."--Publishers Weekly

"With simple exercises designed to bring mindfulness into daily life and with gentle ways to remind ourselves to practice, the author leads practitioners to the discoveries and deeper lessons that each exercise can reveal. With [Jan Chozen Bays's] help, mindfulness practice becomes a powerful yet delightful gateway to the inner peace that is within reach of us all."--Spirituality & Health

"In a brilliant, practical, and elegant way, Bays has answered the question most frequently asked by students of meditation, 'How do I bring this practice into my daily life?' Here is a jewel box of insightful, wise, beautiful, and compassionate ways to do so."--Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart

"A delightful collection of simple, down-to-earth exercises anyone can use to live each day more mindfully. Rich with wisdom, psychological insight, and fresh perspectives, this is a great resource for anyone wishing to live a fuller, saner, happier, more conscious life."--Ronald D. Siegel, PsyD, assistant clinical professor, Harvard Medical School, author of The Mindfulness Solution

"A collection of mindfulness practice gems. The writing is often funny and always forthright. How to Train a Wild Elephant is an accessible, helpful, and thoughtful book."--Dr. Arnie Kozak, Beliefnet blogger for Mindfulness Matters

The weekly exercises are illuminating, immensely practical, and fun."--Diana Winston, UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center, co-author of Fully Present: The Science, Art, and Practice of Mindfulness

"Regardless of the path you travel on your spiritual journey, How to Train a Wild Elephant can help you 'live life more fully and joyfully.'"--Portland Woman magazine

"This is the kind of book you can open to any page, anytime, and read something that just might stop your mind in its tracks."--Nexus
