9780399527937: The Art of Effortless Living: Discover Health, Emotional Well-Being, and Happiness

A graduate of Harvard and Columbia, Ingrid Bacci was a real “achiever”—until a crippling disease took over her life for three years. After embarking on a journey of healing using mind-body techniques, she realized the secret to health, happiness, and success was to let go of trying so hard and face the fear that had ruled her life.

 

Many of us are addicted to struggling and trying so hard to make things happen. We feel emotionally dissatisfied and physically exhausted or even ill. We have a nagging sense that there must be more to life than what we are getting. We apply ourselves to reaching our goals, only to find out that we pay a price in the form of stress and tension. In The Art of Effortless Living, Dr. Bacci presents clear, simple techniques for developing an effortless lifestyle. Through breathing exercises, meditation, visualization, bodywork and tapping into unconscious guidance, you can learn how to achieve a more fulfilling life—by doing less.

Review:

“Here is a Book of Changes—a profound and potent guide to making transformative shifts in body, mind and spirit. At once wise and passionate, The Art of Effortless Living offers state of the art knowledge and practice in the development of the inner life. The author’s journey from mainstream to deepstream presents a model for our own self-discovery. The result can only be new ways of being for self and society.” —Jean Houston, Ph.D., bestselling author of fifteen books, including The Possible Human and The Search for the Beloved

 

“This book contains a piece of essential wisdom—that by letting go we gain more, not less. Because most of us are obsessed with the idea of making things happen, we seriously need the lesson of The Art of Effortless Living.” —Larry Dossey, M.D., author ofReinventing Medicine and Healing Words

 

“Dr. Ingrid Bacci’s marvelously readable and immensely practical book shares decades of her own experience exploring and developing a wide range of ways of healing and enhancing health—physical, emotional and spiritual. I loved reading it, and continue to draw upon its resources of wisdom.” —Elaine Pagels, Ph.D., author of The Gnostic Gospels,The Origin of Satan, and Adam, Eve and the Serpent

 

“Bacci deftly describes addictions to fear and anxiety...She offers many suggestions for developing an alternative, ‘effortless’ lifestyle...She skillfully presents the bodywork she’s been performing with clients since the early 1980s and explains the philosophy behind it in calm, accessible prose.” —Publishers Weekly

 

“Along with profound as well as practical suggestions for healing, The Art of Effortless Living cultivates a confidence in the path of knowing, feeling, sensing, and releasing all that is in the way of our own healthy self-empowerment.” —Spirit of Change

 

"Ingrid Bacci eloquently describes the parallel lines of inner and outer healing.”—Peter J. D’Adamo, B.Sc., N.D., author of Eat Right 4 Your Type
