Ordinary Magic : Everyday Life As Spiritual Path (92 Edition)by John Welwood
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Spiritual practice and meditation are often thought of as being the province of priests, monks, and nuns—those few individuals who have returned from the preoccupations of day-to-day life. This inspiring book reveals how the simple practice of mindfulness can be a magical and transformative part of anyone's daily life. Thirty-five wide-ranging essays written by well-known spiritual teachers, therapists, and creative artists show how learning to focus awareness can bring a new richness to ordinary activities; how mindfulness can heighten creative pursuits such as painting, journal writing, or playing music; how contemplative awareness enhances both physical and psychological well-being; and how meditation can contribute to better relationships with family, community, and the world at large.
An inspiring collection of essays written by well-known spiritual teachers, psychotherapists, and creative artists. Thich Nhat Hanh, Ram Dass, J. Krishnamurti, Allen Ginsberg, Natalie Goldberg, and others show how the practice of mindfulness can be a magical and enriching part of everyday, ordinary life.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -334).
