Review:

"Angeles Arrien is one of the most gifted and generous teachers of our time. She brings forward the perennial wisdom of traditional cultures and gives it accessible, pragmatic application that is essential to the health of our contemporary society. Angeles Arrien is a rare and true wise elder. She embodies what she teaches." --Frank Ostaseski, founder and director of the Metta Institutue

"In our busy lives, we all long for more deep breaths and loving connection. The beautiful gift of this wise book is that it shows us how to do this. It leads us by the hand and heart, month by month, to greater mercy, joy, well-being, and happiness. What a blessed way to live." --Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart

"Rarely has the art of gratitude been presented in so rich and evocative a manner. Brimming with story, spirit, science, culture, and prayer, Angeles Arrien brings her luminous wisdom to create a masterpiece of soulful living." --Jean Houston, PhD, author of A Mythic Life

"The daily practice of gratitude will enhance the quality of every aspect of your life, including better health, more fulfilling relationships, and greater financial abundance. This book is the best manual I have ever come across to show you how. I highly recommend it!" --Jack Canfield, coauthor of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and The Success Principles

"Having written about and practiced gratitude for over a decade, I felt there was nothing else to say about the topic. Then I read Living in Gratitude. Angeles takes the practice of thankfulness to a whole new level. Month by month, she guides us with questions and reflections to use gratefulness to grow spiritually in work, finances, health, and relationships. I give thank to her and to this book." --M.J. Ryan, author of Attitudes of Gratitude and A Grateful Heart

"Are you exhausted? Disheartened? Worried? Please do yourself a favor and read this book. Please allow this heart food to feed you at the deepest levels of your being. This is more than a book-it is a manual for living a life that you love and that matters, a life of savoring and serving, a life or inter-communication and grace. Please, let yourself be fed." --Jennifer Louden, author of The Woman's Comfort Book and The Life Organizer
