Book 8 of 6 in the Mindfulness Essentials series, because Zen monks don't get hung up about numbering things. Enjoy these simple, often humorous, always uplifting messages, usually just a few sentences per page with gentle pen-and-ink illustrations by Jason DeAntonis. In these times of increased loneliness, alienation, and deaths of despair, How to Connect is truly essential. Building on How to Love (love yourself, love others, deep listening), this is a primer for focusing on what is truly important in life. Amazing that the key to self-improvement is getting outside your own head, and connecting with & helping others.
