7 Highly Effective Tools for Cultivating Inner Peace & Tranquility


From the introduction:

The purpose of this ebook is to provide you with some simple and supportive tools that can help you build more peace and tranquility into your life.

Some years ago I made the decision to leave my job in central London and move into a lifestyle that offered me the chance for deep contemplation and personal growth. Looking back over twenty years of learning and experimenting with techniques for reducing stress and increasing my sense of personal peace I can see that, for a while, I made hard work of things. I just didn't get how easy it is to slow down and calm down. 

That all changed in 2003 when a sudden illness put me to bed and I was "forced" to reflect and put  what I had learned into practice. As the months and years rolled by with me largely confined to my own home I learned how to reframe the experience and, for the most part, I didn't feel confined at all. I learned to journey far and wide in my own mind; to walk, run and swim, to travel and explore. And beyond that, I learned to find my calm centre, to work with my breath, to ease physical pain and to relax more deeply than I ever thought possible.

It was during this time that I produced some of my most creative work, developing soundscapes for relaxation projects, writing feature articles and a column for Lifescape magazine and starting my own blog here on Living by Design.

As I have developed a greater respect for myself and my needs and gradually improved my health I have enjoyed sharing the tips and tools that have helped me most with my readers.


Something called Beautiful Calm has to look beautiful too, so I've designed this eBook myself with love and care - here's a quick look inside...
