Find balance, peace, and even wisdom, by learning to steady the mind.

Stress and anxiety affect many of us as we struggle with work pressures, money worries, strained relationships, and the nagging sense that life may be running out of our control. But a truly calm mind can weather any storm.

Eknath Easwaran, a respected teacher of meditation, offers a wealth of insights, real-life stories and practical suggestions to help us try something more successful next time we're facing our stressors. He explains how to use a mantram (or mantra) to quiet the mind. He describes how to slow down and stay in the present, improve creativity and concentration, shed anxieties and resentments, strengthen our relationships, and stay kind and strong when faced with conflicts, supporting thosearound us.

Easwaran (1910-1999) left a rich archive with thousands of recorded talks, as well as works in progress to be completed under the direction of his wife and editor, Christine Easwaran. Strength in the Storm is drawn from his essays and other previously unpublished material.Each chapter contains:
* An introduction, presenting Easwaran's timeless ideas in the light of today's challenges
* Easwaran's article, which is the main part of each chapter
* A workbook section to help get the most out of each article.

We learn to calm the mind through practice - there's no magic about it. We can't control what life throws at us, but we can learn to access the courage, patience, and compassion that we need to ride the waves of life minute-by-minute, day-by-day.
