As an awakened Mindfulness Teacher, Jacqui Macdonald has met hundreds of people who have innocently bought into the mindset that the only way to achieve true success and fulfilment is by working to the point of exhaustion.
As summer approaches, Macdonald has a bold message for people – particularly women – everywhere; that doing less is going to rapidly propel them to “being” more.
In her celebrated book, ‘The Lost Art of Being: Secrets to a Calm, Happy, Easy Life’, Macdonald calls on ancient wisdom and modern living to prove that anyone can be happy in a way that’s shockingly simple.
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 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 mystical story, inspirational teachings, a selection of Q&As 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.
“It’s amazing,” explains the author. “We already have the magic and ability within us to thrive in any way we want; we don’t have to drive ourselves to the point of breakdown in order to satisfy the “do more”, “be more” and “achieve more” pressures that life puts on us. The answers are already in us all, and the ancient wisdom in my book will ignite that fire.”
Continuing, “It’s actually very easy to feel happy and calm, and to in-turn achieve our full potential and biggest dreams. The book offers a very different take on the traditional meditation and mindfulness techniques millions of women around the world adopt, and will provide the inner peace and happiness we all crave. But that’s all I’m saying here. If you want to know more – you will need to read the book!”
