Replete with personal stories and quotes and imbued with Casey's own understanding of peaceful living as guided by her 12-step practice, A Course in Miracles, and a daily practice of meditation and prayer, these 75 essays help us make room for everything in our peaceful, vibrant, well-lived life. Each brief nugget invites contemplation and action as she helps us explore fear and love, resistance and acceptance, willpower and discernment. Savor each of the 75 essays and practices and choose the ones that speak to you.
Living Long, Living Passionately brings peace into daily life and is a book to return to often. It will appeal to Casey's legion of readers who are approaching the time to live "everythingness," the doorway to the unfolding of a life already well lived. The rest, as they say, is gravy.
"Casey (Change Your Mind and Your Life will Follow) has written a guidebook, based on her 12-step practice A Course in Miracles and daily custom of meditation and prayer, for a life that has accepted its past and is open to future possibilities. Each of Casey's 75 essays on subjects such as conquering anxiety, living in the moment, and changing the world, is followed by a short exercise for self-assessment. VERDICT: Written mainly for the older reader, these inspirational lessons, which would work well as a study group guide, not only invite reflection but encourage readers to improve their own and others' lives." -Library Journal, Starred Review July 1, 2015
