This book is about making sacred every activity that one is part of each moment of the day. Each day we can be bogged down in the many tasks we must perform. It is easy to lose track of what is important, and the beauty that is around us. The author does this through Zen mindfulness practices and reciting blessings at key points throughout the day.

For someone beginning in Kabbalah this might be a nice introduction but I found it way too practical without the background to understand the why of the practices. It does include specific meditations for all of our major daily activities which are clear and easy to follow so again if you are looking for a simple place to begin, this book might be the ticket.
