An essential guide to finding the quiet moments of stillness inside, and the utter joy of walking this planet. It’s practical, funny, deep, and so-very human. Rabbi Shapiro pulls from Jewish, Christian, and Buddhist teachings, peppering the book with anecdotes of his own stumblings through life that often made me giggle, and always made me grateful that we’re all in the same wobbly boat of doing our best, and that we have teachings to help guide that boat.

This will be on the shelf by my bed for a long time to come. So beautifully written and thoughtfully presented... in a way that one can apply directly to their daily life - especially on those bad days - it helps me mentally regroup.
Just a really great look at kindness and things you can practically do to be intentional and make it a habit. Rabbi Rami is Jewish (& Buddhist) but draws from a wide range of traditions. A lot of food for thought here and I'll be reading this a few more times.

Accessible and focused on practices.
