Top Customer Reviews
Dr. Shojai has online resources to augment the material in the book, too. I have found the guides, recipes, and videos very helpful in finding my "inner zen." I feel like I am truly on my way to becoming an Urban Monk, too, and I don't have to quit my day job to do it!
I have been on the path for most of my life and was already doing a lot of this, but I am still getting many great tools and insights.
I highly recommend this book to anybody dealing with stress and the many levels of hating life. Hopefully you can follow the advice of this Sage Monk and make your life a place you love to live.
I am amazed to note, most people who really need this book don't read books. So if you are thinking of taking a chance with a book, this is the right one.
