This book is about, among other things, living a life beyond the mental image that we have created of ourselves. If you yearn for peace, acceptance, surrender and presence in your life, this is a book you would want to have on your bookshelf. It is not a book to read from cover to cover. I have had this book for over 6 years and am constantly learning from it. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed and put it down, other times I am amazed that I missed something so deep!
