Sukey and Elizabeth Novogratz are two of the founders of the celebrated newsletter The Well Daily. Elizabeth is the co-author of Downtown Chic and Home by Novogratz, and lives in Brooklyn, NY. Sukey is the executive producer of the acclaimed documentary The Hunting Ground.
Together, Elizabeth and Sukey have travelled the world to study meditation in every kind of classroom, from Lakota sweat lodges to Tibet House, from ashrams to vision quests to Oneness retreats. They have learned from many renowned teachers, including Sharon Salzberg, Krishna Das, Ram Dass, Amma, and the monks at One World Academy in Chennai, India. Their inspiration for writing this book is drawn from friends, readers, and complete strangers who echoed their own questions about how to take the first steps toward making meditation part of a more mindful, reflective, and joyful life.
