Journeys to the Deep

A Gentle Guide to Mindfulness Meditation
(MudPie Books, March 31st 2022)

“This is a book of real wisdom and grace; a travelling companion for the work that is done in silence, far below the surface of the mind.”

This book is a treasure trove, packed with inspiration, wisdom and guidance for meditators old and new. With gentle humour and insight, Elizabeth English dovetails lyrical prose and beautifully crafted poems. Her simple but profound message is: ‘Meditate as you can, not as you can’t.’
