Book Description

Each day calls us to tend life beyond ourselves. Dancing with the Ten Thousand Things helps you answer that call and become a more powerful healing presence.
You have the innate ability to be a healing presence. Imagine amplifying your gifts and applying them in your family life, friendships, work, organizations, and community. Transforming care and compassion into effective action will become your way of life.
This book outlines the journey of waking up through being of service. You will observe two changes taking place: less unnecessary suffering and greater possibilities in the life you share with others. You will learn to consciously tend to life one moment at a time.

Tom Balles has gathered his years of study in a variety of traditions and offers them as a gift. He succeeds in blending the richness of the deep wisdom traditions with daily practices to enhance your learning. This is very rich food for the body, mind, and soul. Take the time to digest this feast slowly over the days, weeks, and months ahead.
-Robert M. Duggan, M.A., M.Ac., (UK) author of Common Sense for the Healing Arts, Co-Founder and President of the Tai Sophia Institute for the Healing Arts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dancing with Ten Thousand Things July 25, 2007
Dancing with Ten Thousand Things, offers readers practical tools to create more joy and fulfillment in both their personal and professional lives. Using the ancient wisdom of nature as a guide we are shown how to let go of the ways of thinking and being that hold us back from being fully alive. By putting into practice these tools we learn ways to build and sustain meaningful and productive relationships with our friends, family and in our workplaces. Anyone seeking more effectiveness at home or in their work must read this book and start working the principles.

5.0 out of 5 stars A leader/teachers guide in coaching August 6, 2007
This work is a gift to leaders and teachers as an excellent resource for those who want to be a healing presence in the circle from where they are doing and being their work. It is a valuable teaching resource to carry with you and review when holding the space for individual and group communication and interations. The practices have an ease and grace that are naturally transformative, intiating an unfolding of healing phenomena that arises in your self and others. I carry the book with me in all my travels as a continuing guide in my role as a transformational guide and mentor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book March 1, 2009
This book is very well written, well organized, with easy to follow exercises. If you take your time and do the exercises I believe you will improve your own health and also become a healing presence to others. Its not just for health care professionals but makes a great book for anyone to check in with themselves.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unexceptional December 27, 2013
There are plenty of other texts which espouse the paradigms reproduced within this book. Nonetheless, the work is a commendable attempt by a first-time author.
