As I read through these gems, i was struck by the seemingly limitless compassion that flows through them. At a time of tremendous change, uncertainty and questioning, to be able to rely on this book as a constant companion on a one-year journey towards balance and equanimity is a great gift.
Agapi writes from what is clearly a deeply felt, deeply vulnerable place. In her acceptance of her own vulnerability, she demonstrates its great strength, and that serves as an example and an encouragement to the rest of us to trust her and to follow her. There's no judgment, no admonition, no prescription - just a loving and wondrous acceptance of our humanity in all its brilliance and frailty.
We all grew up on bedtime stories that our parents would use to lull us to sleep at night. This may be the first book of "wake-up" stories that we can use to get out of bed, start our week, and be inspired, applying the wonderful wisdom that Agapi offers, and witnessing the transformations that result.

I'm just starting with meditation, and my biggest struggle has been boredom. I feel restless during the whole process, and a guided process is the only way I can convince myself to even start. Agapi's collection should last me a full year! It's a great for someone just starting.
Pro tip: It's a bit difficult to read while you meditate. I'd recommend getting the audio version!

The quotations at the beginning of each chapter are inspiring, however the meditations at the end are useless as you can't listen to them and trying to meditate having to read the instructions really kinda defeat the purpose for me.
Not sure I'd recommend.
