The writing is beautifully encouraging and gentle. I love how the author softly draws us into a quiet place of reflection.
This book is divided into four chapters entitled “Find Inner Peace, Focus Your Mind, Overcome Obstacles, Foster Gratitude and Spread Joy.” Then each chapter is divided into sections for each meditation, journaling pages, and intention setting. There is plenty of room for journaling and writing in your thoughts.
There are inspirational quotes at the beginning of each section with beautiful watercolor designs in muted colors. Some of the quotes are from Buddha, Mahatma Ghandi, or Deepak Chopra; but others are from people like John F. Kennedy, Christopher Reeve, and Maya Angelou.
Most of the meditations are basic beginner meditations like focusing on your breath, noticing your surroundings, imagining a safe place, scanning your body, or repeating a simple mantra. And yet, these are excellent meditations for seasoned meditators too. I love the details and the gentleness of each meditation.
I really appreciated that this meditation book keeps things simple. Each theme is applicable to any person from any walk of life. There are no religious ideas taught in this book, so most of the general concepts could be used by anyone and adapted to your own philosophy or beliefs.
