Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every day we are confronted with constant pressures to do more, keep moving and increase our pace. But where does this lead us? Often down a path where our lives feel out of control, so that our heartfelt goals and values are lost in the shuffle. But it doesn't have to be that way. In Take Your Time, Eknath Easwaran offers a concrete approach to dealing with the pressures to hurry in our lives.

With gentle wisdom and practical advice he shows how to slow down the pace of our day without sacrificing efficiency; improve, deepen, and heal relationships; make deliberate and intentional choices; and focus our scattered attentions. The first step in living intentionally is to slow down the mind, says Easwaran, and here are easy-to-follow, realistic tools for doing just that — tools which, used regularly, can help us find that point of balance in our lives where we are the most focused, efficient, and loving.

Synopsis:

Speeded up, fragmented, impersonal, and exhausting — thats life in a plugged-in, always-on-the-go world. Many people want to step back and take a break from the chaos, but training a frazzled mind to embrace calm isnt easy. For more than 40 years, Eknath Easwaran dedicated himself to teaching the skills of a gentler, more human way of living. Take Your Time offers his proven techniques for improving health, relationships, and productivity in the midst of a busy lifestyle. Drawing on his strengths as a meditation teacher, he combines timeless stories with step-by-step teachings to help readers slow down, stay calm, and get a sense of lifes true purpose. He shows readers that the key to a more peaceful life isnt necessarily changing how they work or what they do, but how they think. With humor and wisdom, he invites readers to step back from the hurry around them and find new paths to joy and serenity.

Synopsis:

With constant pressure to do more, keep moving and go faster, our everyday lives often do not and cannot reflect our most heartfelt values and ideas. In the perfect follow-up to YOUR LIFE IS YOUR MESSAGE, the founder of the world famous Blue Mountain Center of Meditation teaches us how to achieve daily happiness by slowing down our hectic pace and making controlled choices.
