Mindful Living | Book Review

I have always wanted to go to Miraval Resort & Spa but, never had the chance…yet.  I can, however, have a taste of the enlightening luxury they have to offer in their second book Mindful Living.

Mindful Living is a glorious, hardcover, coffee table book that offers you the experience you would have at the resort but, in the comfort of your own home.  Each chapter in the book corresponds to a month of the year and a central theme for the chapter.  The themes are the “key tenets of Miraval’s philosophy.” The book starts with January and a theme of beginnings for the chapter with each consecutive chapter following the calendar. 

Inside the chapters you will find ways to improve all aspects of your life.  There are sections on exercise, meditation, and even food and nutrition.  You will get strategies, to transform your life, that can be implemented into your life very easily. 

Also included are some recipes from there menu that you can make at home.  They include mouthwatering items such as Herb-Roasted Rack of Lamb, Vegetarian Black Bean Soup, Fruit Energizer Smoothie, and Baked Apple Tortelli, just to name a few.

I know that this book will never make up for the actually experience that can be had at the resort but, it definitely feels like it comes close.  All the wisdom…none of the travel.
