Even though I’ve been applying metaphysics in my life for the last 12 years, have completed a 4-year in-depth study of the mind, and know how to concentrate on command, I still require daily exercises and mindful practices in taming the wild elephant that all too often takes hold of my thoughts and runs rampant in my mind.
So it was probably no wonder that Jane C. Bays’ latest book, How to Train a Wild Elephant: And Other Adventures in Mindfulness, nearly leapt from the bookshelf at Barnes & Noble and begged for me to open it.
And I’m glad I did!
Inside her 224-page paperback book, Bays dives into simple yet detailed tips and suggestions on bringing about the practice of mindfulness into one’s daily life by supplying the reader with a progressive series of 52 intentional exercises—one for each week—aimed at becoming life-long habits.
“Once this way of being present is integrated into your life,” Bays says, “…Gradually you are present and aware for more and more moments of the day.”
