Macmillan, 2001, Softcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First Thus
This little book will introduce contentment to even the most mundane of household chores. Your home is an extension of you; therefore, when your home is in turmoil, your mind is in turmoil. When you attend to your home, you begin to feel less hurried and more in tune with your life. There is a delight and calm to be found in the midst of washing dishes or changing the water in a vase of flowers; there is pleasure to be experienced in the repetitions of daily life. Gary Thorp shows how the principles of Zen can bring harmony and peace to your life at home. You don't need special surroundings to achieve the tranquillity of Zen; you can find it anywhere - in the action of dusting a shelf, organizing your wardrobe, or feeding your cat. 'Zen' simply means meditation, and it does not require you to be seated formally - everyday activities can bring satisfaction and self-growth and provide an opportunity for Zen practice. Sweeping Changes may not only change your feelings towards housework; it may help you see your home in a new and nurturing light. This is the first UK edition.
