In recent years, people of diverse social and religious backgrounds have embraced the Buddhist philosophy of mindfulness, or bringing one’s awareness to focus on the present moment, to enrich their mental and spiritual lives. Through her experience as a counselor, a founding member of a Twelve Steps and mindfulness group, and a woman in recovery, Thérèse Jacobs-Stewart discovered a number of parallels between the practice of mindfulness and that of working the Twelve Steps, from the idea of living ‘one day at a time’ to the emphasis on prayer and meditation.

Mindfulness and the 12 Steps provides those in recovery with a new resource and fresh perspective for developing their own spiritual path. While revisiting each of the Twelve Steps, readers explore the interplay of ideas between mindfulness and Twelve-step traditions and learn to incorporate mindfulness into their path toward lifelong sobriety. Reflections and questions for inquiry are complemented by stories from Buddhist teachers and members of her mindfulness recovery group, as well as by the author’s personal story of recovery as a practicing Buddhist.

Mindfulness and the 12 Steps will help awaken new thinking and insights into what it means to live fully—body, mind, and spirit—in the here and now.

    Somewhere between the past and the future lies a dimension that is free of problems, free of suffering, free of conflict. This is the essence of all the world’s spiritual teachings. And it is available to you now, in the moment you read this. In Living the Liberated Life and Dealing with the Pain-Body, bestselling author Eckhart Tolle points a way out of the conditioned mind that keeps us trapped, helpless, and unhappy. In simple language, he describes a deeper level of consciousness beyond the limited thinking mind, and the way to make it available to you. He teaches that only by fully accepting this moment in time can you free yourself from the pain-body, the accumulated pain of your past, and from your fears about the future. Once you achieve this state of presence, a radical inner transformation begins that connects you with an infinite potential that defies the human mind. Warmly shared, in the authentic voice that has brought him international acclaim, here is Eckhart Tolle’s simple and profound gift to us, at a time when our world needs it most.

    The Impossible Just Takes a Little Longer: Living with Purpose and Passion

    Product Description

    A postscript to this edition includes a touching letter that Berg’s young daughter wrote about her father for the Books for a Better Life Awards ceremony.

    On December 26, 1983, Art Berg was traveling to see his fiancée when his car went off the road. A broken neck left him a quadriplegic. Doctors told Berg he would never walk, hold a job, or have children. But they could not have been more wrong. Berg was determined to prevail, and would one day wear his own Super Bowl ring.

    In The Impossible Just Takes a Little Longer, Berg recounts his harrowing and inspirational story while imparting larger lessons about life, fear, and passion. Never giving up, Art resolved to embrace life even more fully, and established a thriving career as a motivational speaker, giving more than 150 speeches each year.

    Tragically, Art Berg died in February 2002, but his inspiring story — a singular vision of passion and conviction — lives on in The Impossible Just Takes a Little Longer. Review
    In the preface, Art Berg (Finding Peace in Troubled Waters, Some Miracles Take Time) says he’s going to tell us a story, and that we might find that story a tragedy. And while his story of a flipped car and permanent paralysis will inspire sympathy, Berg is so plainspoken and wryly positive, chances are that it will only take readers a couple of chapters before that sympathy becomes a desire for personal growth.

    Berg’s folksy suggestions include treating a bad day like a cold virus: “you can make all kinds of moaning sounds. But the reality is, it usually will last for 24 to 48 hours.” He also recommends that we not ask why bad things happen, because there is never a reasonable answer and the process leads all too easily to what he calls “why-ning.”

    These notions may seem like oversimplification, but his little snippets of wisdom are surrounded by stories of the types of obstacles most of us never encounter, like dealing with doctors who said he’d never move independently again, flight attendants treating him differently because of his wheelchair, an inability to make a simple “thumbs up” sign to his daughter, and relearning how to accomplish simple daily tasks.

    With moving examples like these as the basis for his philosophy, Berg smoothly ties the events of his life together with appealingly simple ideas to help you focus on your true desires and strengths. –Jill Lightner
