Book Review- The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down: How to be Calm in a Busy World by Haemin Sunim
'Is it the world that's busy, or my mind?' a guide by Haemin Sunim
We live in a world that’s extremely busy and it’s quite hard to find time to just rest with all the notifications we receive on our mobile phones and the overall pace of life! This book can help you to look at things in a different way to create rest for yourself.
In this best-selling mindfulness guide - it has sold more than three million copies in Korea, where it was a number-one best-seller for 41 weeks and received book of the year awards - Haemin Sunim (which means "spontaneous wisdom"), a renowned Buddhist meditation teacher born in Korea and educated in the United States, illuminates a path to inner peace and balance amid the overwhelming demands of everyday life.
This book covers multiple facets of our lives and by offering guideposts to well-being and happiness in eight areas -including relationships, love, and spirituality - Haemin Sunim emphasizes the importance of forging a deeper connection with others and being compassionate and forgiving toward ourselves.
Maybe one to order and read over Christmas, ready for those New year resolutions we all try so hard to keep!
