Product description

Product Description

'Meditation and mindfulness are tools for working with the mind, but where they have led me is to a blossoming of the heart ...'

What does a spiritual seeker look like? Could you pick one in a lineup? If you said yes, chances are you weren't imagining this meditating model. Born in Sydney, Australia, Narissa Doumani grew up well loved, well educated, and (reasonably) well dressed, but for years grappled with what she admits is 'the ultimate first world problem': how to be truly, deeply happy in any lasting way. In this intimate memoir, she explores the creative process, traverses the heights of romantic love and the despair of self-doubt, and comes face to face with her own fragile mortality. But it's in a cave in a Thai forest, where she meets the Buddhist yogi who will become her spiritual guide, that she learns to unravel the messy states of mind and heart that had kept her from living a spacious life - and thereby begins to uncover the happiness, meaning, and connection for which she always yearned.

A Spacious Life is a heart-warming, honest, and at times surprisingly humorous look into the quest for meaning beyond materialism - and its relevance as an essential condition for well-being and fulfilment within modern-day life.

'Intelligent, contemplative spiritual memoir by a fine writer with a rich interior world.' - Kirkus Reviews
