What makes this book and guide so outstandingly unique and critically important is that it shows the reader how to work with stress in a way that can ultimately transform our lives. We discover tools to look more closely into the shadows and cobwebbed corners of our lives--those places we so love to avoid in our skittish society--and we come to see that the monster isn't such a monster after all. Quite in fact if we choose to shake hands with those things that come up -- that would otherwise knock us down and drag us -- we take the first step towards dissolving the pattern.
Creative Stress includes stories from the field that will break your heart wide open, from real people who have experienced and witnessed some of the most traumatic and tragic stressors possible who have gone on to exemplify the greatest of Grace and selfless service to the world.
Also within this book are tools for our daily practice, to help us discover ways in which the messenger of stress might be more of a friend than an enemy--and perhaps ultimately even a great catalyst.
Given that we are living in a world that is changing rapidly and many are searching for a sense of peace amidst so many challenges, this book is unequivocally a manual for living, and even thriving, amidst the storms that inevitably come.
