This is a fantastic book for anyone with a chronic illness, especially one that is not physically obvious. It explains how to be sick but still be happy and at peace, using Buddhist principles. Accepting that suffering is part of all human life, detaching from desires for things you can no longer do, etc. I took it back to the library and bought 2 copies, one for me and one for a friend. Highly recommended.

Peggy I'm going to order us a copy this very minute! Thanks for the recommendation. Stuart is working his "practice" more and more in that direction, teaching Qigong twice a week in our cabin down the hill, mostly working with "oldsters" of our ilk!
