A Mindful Way leads the reader through a comprehensive eight-week course towards self-realization and spiritual growth. Using innovative and creative teaching methods, Jeanie Seward-Magee draws on her own personal experience to show how three simple techniques — writing, breathing, and focusing — can transform one’s life. This humorous, compassionate book is full of practical, immediately useful advice, and speaks eloquently to those with little or no experience with either Buddhism or spirituality. The book’s foreword is by Thich Nhat Hanh.
