Praise for Bays's How to Train a Wild Elephant:

"Among the current spate of books on mindfulness, Bays's distinguishes itself with 53 simple practices tested through 20 years at the Great Vow Monastery in Oregon. [She] brings gentle compassion to the task of integrating mindfulness into a busy life."-Publishers Weekly

"This is the kind of book you can open to any page, anytime, and read something that just might stop your mind in its tracks."-Nexus

"In a brilliant, practical, and elegant way, Bays has answered the question most frequently asked by students of meditation: 'How do I bring this practice into my daily life?' Here is a jewel box of insightful, wise, beautiful, and compassionate ways to do so."-Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart

"With simple exercises designed to bring mindfulness into daily life and with gentle ways to remind ourselves to practice, the author leads practitioners to the discoveries and deeper lessons that each exercise can reveal. With [Jan Chozen Bays's] help, mindfulness practice becomes a powerful yet delightful gateway to the inner peace that is within reach of us all."-Spirituality & Health
