Through illuminating stories about difficult relationships, death, vanity, aging, sex, and friendship, Neumann discovers key mindfulness practices and offers guidance for anyone interested in creating a safety net of joy. Scenes with Thich Nhat Hanh, her two vividly exuberant older parents, and two endlessly imaginative pre-teen daughters illustrate how Neumann adapts mindfulness techniques to the busyness of daily life, without losing her edge.
Rachel Neumann, who lives in the SF Bay area, is also a popular writer and blogger. Her work has appeared in The Village Voice, The Nation and many other national and local magazines, and she blogs at peaceandsleep.com.
