Spiritual intelligence has arrived! A fresh, compelling and practical guide to the inner peace and creative power within each one of us! * Alberto Villoldo PhD, bestselling author of One Spirit Medicine and Shaman, Healer, Sage. *
A Book for Life: Ten Steps to Inner Happiness is a treasure trove of wisdom from various traditions, ranging from Shamanism to Buddha's philosophy, and Zen to Western philosophy, all of which are intertwined with a plethora of ancient parables. Serving as a light house, Jo's book is a guide to discovering one's aptitude along the journey of life, towards the goal suitable to each person's disposition and mental proclivities. I highly recommend this book. * Geshe Dorji Damdul, Former Translator to H.H. the Dalai Lama, Director/Tibet House, Cultural Center of H.H. the Dalai Lama, New Delhi *
What I absolutely love about this book is that Jo Bowlby draws on her deep experience in both the spiritual Teachings and modern psychology and translates it for people like us - into easy to understand practical tools we can apply in daily life. In a way she's done the deep research and homework for us - so it's a bit like a cheat sheet! A wealth of information and tools in there. * Sahar Hashemi, OBE, Founder of Coffee Republic and Skinny Candy, and Keynote Speaker *
Zesty, like a tangerine to be peeled in mindful contemplation. Simple yet all-enveloping, like an attractive blue sky. Flowing like water. As intriguing as the finest thriller. Charming and surprising, like a shooting star. Nourishing like honey. Ancient and full of energy, like a volcano. Jo's book is an offer of freedom to dance our way home: a true and truthful balm of practical wisdom on the "simple" art of life. * Nicoletta Fiorucci Russo De Li Galli, Philanthropist and Contemporary Art Collector *
The most exciting book to be published for years, this is a guide to the art of life - it is absolutely beautiful. Start now! * Kate Reardon, Editor in Chief, The Times LUXX Magazine *
