The Simple Abundance Companion: Following Your Authentic Path to Something More Paperback – 1 April 2000
Ban Breathnach possesses a contagious playfulness that permeates the book's workshop structure. Critics call her frivolous, but fans call her inspirational. Even her resources promise a good time, including her amusing appendix on "Cinematherapy," which lists suitable movies for every chapter. (For example, chapter 3, "Romancing the Soul," could be enhanced by watching Love in the Afternoon or A Man and a Woman.)
"Consider this workbook a personal tutorial," she writes. "Just you and me.... But please let's think girls' night out instead of study group as we sift and sort. Gratefully, I've finally learned to choose fun over earnestness any day of the week, and I'm not going back. How about you?" Not a chance, Sarah. Not a chance. --Gail Hudson
From the Back Cover
Before Simple Abundance and Something More became New York Times bestsellers helping millions of women discover their authentic selves, author Sarah Ban Breathnach was running workshops that actively guided and inspired others onto the Simple Abundance path. Now Sarah re-creates the heart of these workshops on the page, bringing their essence to women everywhere.
"Some of these spiritual lessons are ones I've embraced, embodied, and swear by. Others are the ones that try my soul during the day and haunt me during dark nights. I consider them spiritual secrets meant to be shared."
In twelve chapters, one for every month, here is a whole year of soulcraft. From gratitude to play, from connecting to the sacred to facing your fears, Sarah provides thoughtful exercises, explorations, excursions, and other creative, pragmatic, hands-on ways to probe your deepest feelings to reveal your authentic self.
"Consider this workbook a personal tutorial. Just you and me. Maybe add a few of your closest pals. But please, let's think girls-night-out instead of study group as we sift and sort. Gratefully I've finally learned to choose fun over earnestness any day of the week and I'm not going back. How about you?"
