Change is the breath of life. The foot at rest meets nothing. Practice makes mastery. Proverbs exist all around the world, in every culture, and they stand the test of time because of their potential to reveal the secrets to leading a happier, calmer, and more meaningful life. In this volume, 52 well-chosen Irish proverbs — one for each week of the year — speak directly to the challenges and stresses of modern life. Fiann Ó Nualláin unlocks the meaning of each proverb and pairs it with a mindfulness technique that combines elements of positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, and awareness activation. As you read these profound old words, allow them to take on a fresh meaning to reveal the secrets to mindful living and spiritual awareness.
