A house is merely physical but a home is far more subtle and elusive. This book takes the view that being ‘at home’ is a metaphor for finding ourselves — finding our core. What do we find at our core? Well, if the world's great wisdom traditions have anything to say about it then home is about qualities that we could equate with 'good' itself — true happiness, peace, beauty, wisdom and inspiration. It is also about the good things in life such as harmony, relationships, health and wealth. So, how are we to find our core and create a home that reminds us of the qualities associated with it? That is where the practice of mindfulness comes in! By exploring the ways in which we feed our mind and our heart through our senses, how we use space, the practicalities of managing a home, and how we can live a healthy and sustainable life at home, The Mindful Home will enable us to shape the living space we really want, creating an environment that both nurtures and invigorates us, while meeting our needs. Beautifully designed, this is the ultimate guide to the art of conscious living Combines the two megatrends of Mindfulness and Home Improvement in a beautiful useful book – which has attracted enormous pre publication interest around the world as the only book of its kind. Chapters include Philosophy of The Mindful Home, The Five Sense, The Five spaces, Home as a Healthier Environment.

Crochet saves lives. It saved mine.In the worst throes of depression I found myself sobbing on the bathroom floor, the tip of a kitchen knife pointed into my wrist. I was aching to break the flesh and bring the pain to an end. Through sheer force of will, I pried my own desperate hands open and replaced the knife with a crochet hook. Then I crocheted to save my life.In this book, you will get to know me through my story of depression and healing. And you will get to know other women as well. You will meet Aurore who crochets to stay in touch with reality as she deals with ongoing psychiatric hallucinations. You will meet Laurie who made a new life with crochet after years of a life filled with abuse. You will meet Tammy whose crochet helps her with the ups and downs of living with Chronic Lyme Disease. You will meet Liza who crochets through the anxiety of having temporary bouts of blindness caused by an undiagnosed health condition. Here are some of the things you will hear them say:“When I crochet I don't think about how my body is now broken; I think about how I can create something beautiful and useful with my hook and either yarn or thread.” -Vicki“When I'm anxious, I feel like a hollow hull. Crocheting helps fill up the void.” - Aurore“I couldn't pay for therapy, but a few balls of crochet thread cost less than $20 and provided me with many hours of crochet.” – M.K. “The feeling of the yarn and the rhythmic motions produced by crocheting are very quieting and help me regroup, recharge and become reconnected to my inner self amidst turmoil and confusion.” – Aimee“Crochet helps me put my pain on the back burner for a while. It takes my focus away from how I'm feeling and puts it in a more productive place”. - ShelliThe two dozen women whose stories are shared in this book are the women who hook to heal. We are not alone. Studies shows that crocheters are numerous; research and anecdotal evidence show that people of all ages, from all walks of life, with all types of health conditions may find healing through their hooks and yarn. Join us on our journey.
