Peace in the Present Moment

Peace in the Present Moment includes photographs by Michele Penn, foreword by Stephen Mitchell, and select quotations from A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle and A Thousand Names for Joy by Bryon Katie.


Book Description
“With selected quotations from A New Earth and A Thousand Names for Joy, this stunning gift book combines selected wisdom from Eckhart Tolle and Byron Katie with vibrant photos of nature’s most colorful gift, the flower.

Conceived by award-winning photographer Michele Penn, this volume contains over forty full-color photos of flowers, linked to the core teachings of Tolle and Katie. Each flower and corresponding quotation provide valuable insight into such key concepts as living in the moment, gratitude, nurturing the soul, and much more. There is also an insightful and witty foreword by Stephen Mitchell.

This is a gift book that will be treasured by those who have been touched by the teachings of both of these authors.” – Peace in the Present Moment


My Thoughts
Peace in the Present Moment is an easy and beautiful read. However, if you want to fully grasp the teachings provided by Eckhart Tolle and Byron Katie, you will probably want to just read one at a time and savor the present moment with each quote you read.


This is really a perfect gift for those who want to be awakened and in the present moment. Even if you or someone you want to gift this to has read either of the books the quotes were taken from, this is still a very enjoyable book to read and experience. The photographs included with each quote are stunning and really give you something beautiful to look at with each inspirational and invigorating quote.

The quotes selected for the book are perfect and will help to awaken your life. Even if you just want to read one a day, or all in one day, this is really a book worth purchasing. I highly recommend it.

Sounds fantastic! Looking forward to checking it out. I'm always up for a book with quotes. I have them everywhere...I'm constantly finding little slips of paper that I've tucked here and there with quotes that I've written down. I love rediscovering them. :o)
