The Circle of Simplicity: Return to the Good Lifeby Cecile Andrews
Synopses & Reviews
For a growing number of people, simplicity has been a path to experience the joy in life, to cherish its richness and vitality.It strips away the burdens of our daily lives so that we are left with exhilaration, spirit and fullness. These people are finding that less — less work, less rushing, less debt — is more — more time with family and friends, more time with community, more time with nature, and more time to develop a meaningful and compelling spirituality.
In The Circle of Simplicity: Return to the Good Life, author Cecile Andrews helps you discover and create the good life for yourself. She is renowned for her workshops on voluntary simplicity and her seminars on creating simplicity circles, where people explore their own life stories and share information and knowledge, helping one another develop lives of simplicity and satisfaction. The circles do not only give people the tools to change, but they also fill unmet needs for community and intimacy and the desire to search for truth in the company of kindred spirits.
Simplicity is in. According to the Trends Research Institute, fifteen percent of America's 77 million baby boomers will have joined the voluntary simplicity movement by the end of the decade. In "The Circle of Simplicity", Cecile Andrews explains how, instead of working to exhaustion, we should focus on creativity, participate in community life, and be more concerned about the planet.
This philosophical and prescriptive guide to simplicity helps readers create a life that is more joyful, fulfilling, and serene, and less obsessed with work and material gains.
