Tranquilista - Mastering the Art of Enlightened Work and Mindful Play
Balance, bliss, and beauty? Social- and style-consciousness? Yes we can, shows Kimberly Wilson in this new kind of guide for a new era of hope and change. Whimsically titled sections (Mix Mindfulness, Bake in Beauty, Decorate with Sprinkles) outline an eight-step path lived and learned by the author. Taking spirituality as its foundation, the book highlights creative individual expression and offers an entrepreneurial approach to everything from homemaking to brand building. Step-by-step projects and to-do’s cover a tranquilista’s key pursuits: meditation, setting goals, personal style, living green, and even launching a nonprofit. Wilson’s aim throughout is to help each reader realize — and revel in — her unique potential to make a splash and make a difference.
