The Lost Art of Being is a little book about doing less and being more. Capturing the wisdom of ancient sages on how to be happy and roll with the Universe, it applies these sacred secrets to our busy modern lives. Offering direct teachings illustrated by remarkable personal insights from the author’s own experiences, it encourages the reader to discover the immense power of slowing down, letting heart rule head, and remembering how just to be.
It is based on the premise that as human beings, it is only when we look after both aspects of ourselves - human and being - that we can fully relax into our lives. It teaches us how to over-ride the mind to get in touch with our being and receive greater guidance from the universe.
The author Jacqui Macdonald explains: “Most of us are ruled by a voice in our head that tells us we need to strive for bigger, better and more. When we believe this story, we lose sight of the fact that we already have a magical connection to the Universe that will provide everything we need for happiness and success. We become all human, no being. This is the source of all stress.”
The book encourages us to release the need for incessant doing- choosing instead to pause long enough to realise that our thoughts are not real. This allows us to tune into Universal guidance and let our lives unfold far beyond the barriers of convention.
The Lost Art of Being combines a short mythical story, inspirational teachings, a selection of Q&A’s and a practical lifestyle guide. It is funny, full of wisdom and easy to read - a powerful antidote to 21st century stress, recalling ancient secrets about how to ease into the flow of life, relinquishing the need for all effort.
