Industry Reviews
'Brigid raises a brave teacup to the gnarly, mixed, yet ultimately generous provenance of this world. This artfully threaded string of honest, tender worry-beads - in the form of small unvarnished gems of hard-won self-acceptance - comes with far too much edgy candour ever to be mistaken for sticky "self-help". A tonic for the spirit. Recommended dosage: once daily, before sleep.' -Susan Murphy, author of Red Thread Zen 'Infused with honesty and insight and brimming with compassion, this wise book is a nourishing companion for troubled times. A must-read for cultivating a tender and loving approach to ourselves, others and our world'. -Sally Gillespie, author of Climate Crisis and Consciousness 'An exquisitely unembellished Zen lesson in the art of attention, Brigid Lowry's book is at once a memoir, a poem, a song, a bracing cup of tea and a healing balm for the unique blend of pain, joy and wonder of being human. A masterly portrayal of the miraculously ordinary extraordinariness of this very moment.' -Perle Besserman, co-author of Grassroots Zen
