Mindfulness Plain & Simple
Still friends a decade on? What are the chances? A hilarious, heart-breaking, and decade-spanning portrait of a generation.
For a while, Ian, Lauren, and Paul shared the same friends, the same university, the same dreams, and the same potential. Ten years on they are worlds apart. Call centers, charity shops, and bedrooms that smell like cabbage were never part of the plan. The real world doesn't look quite like any of them imagined. But when Lauren, in a moment of nostalgia, cracks open a long-forgotten Hotmail account, she comes face to face with the people these three friends used to be. For two of them it will mean a new beginning to an old love story. Hilarious and heartbreaking, In Real Life paints a searingly honest portrait of a generation and captures a world where human connection is easier than ever before but where relationships remain just as tricky.
A practical guide to inner peace.
Oli Doyle first started practicing mindfulness in 2003, and all he could find were books by the Dalai Lama and other Buddhist writers. Like many do, he found the task of putting those words into practice incredibly difficult, so he set about deconstructing this practice of mindfulness and translating the experience into everyday language. He now teaches mindfulness workshops and his website: www.mindfulnessplainandsimple.com and his mindfulness teaching project: www.alittlepeaceandquiet.com provide the practical teaching to help readers deepen their practice quickly.
