A Mindful Way
Eight Weeks to Happiness
Foreword by Thich Nhat Hanh
Based on her belief that mindfulness is the foundation of a happy and fulfilling life, Jeanie Seward-Magee in A Mindful Way leads the reader through a comprehensive eight-week program towards self-realization and spiritual growth.
Immediately useful, practical advice written in a witty, intimate, and eloquent style, Seward-Magee uses innovative and creative teaching methods and her personal experience to show how simple techniques -writing, breathing, and focusing your awareness— can transform your life. With humor and compassion, A Mindful Way speaks to those with little or no experience with either Buddhism or spirituality.
A Mindful Way contains three very simple, potentially life-changing methodologies. “The Key” and “The Two Secrets”: “Be still and know I am God”, and trainings for deep self-knowledge and gratitude which allow the reader to understand himself and others more wholly. A Mindful Way divides life into seven-year segments, and combined with individually chosen self-reflection exercises, will help the reader examine the question of “Who am I?” The course gradually leads the reader to a deeper understanding that the only thing anyone ever possesses in his or her lives is the present moment.
This is a book for anyone, of any faith, who is looking for ways of enriching their life.
