None of these transformative qualities, as she shows, are learned in the abstract. Until they are brought to life through daily existence they remain nothing but high ideals. But when lived, and especially when lived in the grit of difficult or challenging moments, they are profoundly life giving and supportive. Using a range of stories including her own, together with a rare breadth of psychological and spiritual experience and insight, this book offers a book that can illuminate some of life's toughest questions and restore your faith in what really matters."@en ;
