In SIMPLE ABUNDANCE, Sarah Ban Breathnach helps us discover our true self and spirit to reclaim our authentic life, and to rediscover what it is that makes us truly happy. This powerful guidebook is needed now more than ever as we are assaulted by discord and stress due to constant tragic breaking news, as well as our 24-7 social media culture.
January 14: Start a Gratitude Journal, a blank book, and write down five things before you go to bed that you can be grateful for about that day.
March 21: Observe the Vernal Equinox with a springtime dinner of Salmon cakes, fresh asparagus and new potatoes.
September 1: On Labor Day Weekend, make a list of all the things you wanted to do this summer, but did not get a chance to do. Save this list, and clip it to next June in your calendar. When June comes around, schedule those postponed desires!
By providing a meditation for each day of the year, Sarah illuminates our journey of self-discovery and shows us that simplicity does not imply doing without--true simplicity illuminates our lives from within. She teaches us how to re-order our priorities, carve out time for the personal pursuits that bring contentment, savor the joy of simple pleasures, and delight in the everyday rituals of home and garden.
Not only does each day have a meditation updated for these times, but in this new edition, Sarah will add:
- "A Caution Closet," which will encourage readers to gather everything they would need to evacuate in case of an emergency, transforming an intimidating task to a source of comfort and calm.
- "Shepheard's Hotel," a creative exercise to nudge readers into dreaming new dreams and encourage them to re-imagine their lives through what they love.
