If the pace of your life or depths of your depression leave you lacking in body and soul, this book can help you feel whole again. Jennifer Louden encourages you to assemble and draw on personal rituals, journals and sanctuaries that can add comfort and breathing space to your life. Some are obvious (herbal baths, flowers) or seem too silly, New Age, or time-consuming to tickle every fancy (blow bubbles in traffic jams, chant affirmations). Many more seem sublime and creative. But that's her point: pick and choose what works best for you, but do take some actions to make your life happier.
“...offers us the “how” of self-care: concrete, practical directions on how to nourish ourselves. Thank you Jennifer.” (--Oriah Mountain Dreamer, author of The Invitation)
“[O]ne of the great self-help classics of our times.” (--Suzanne Falter-Barns, author of Living Your Joy and How Much Joy Can You Stand?)
