About the Author:

Victoria Moranlectures nationwide and is the author of several books on contemporary living, including Shelter for the Spirit, Live Yourself Thin, and Get the Fat Out. Her articles have appeared in magazines such as Ladies' Home Journal and New Age Journal.

From Library Journal:

A contributor to Ladies Home Journal and New Age Journal, Moran (Get the Fat Out: 501 Simple Ways to Cut the Fat in Any Diet, Crown, 1994) here proposes that "home is of immense significance to our inner lives." Giving full attention to caring for one's home?not limited to its physical structure?and its inhabitants is therefore a spiritual practice. In this instruction manual for creating and maintaining that haven, Moran addresses such aspects of homemaking as simplifying, cooking, cleaning, celebrating, sitting (meditation and relaxation), comforts, home birth, home schooling, home business, and the final passage (death). Throughout, in a personal, informal, repetetive style, Moran interweaves suggestions with anecdotes and her philosophy as well as that of others. For public libraries serving patrons interested in New Age philosophies of living.?Carol R. Nelson, Ball State Univ. Lib., Muncie, Ind.
