Jeff Foster shares from his own awakened experience a way out of seeking fulfillment in the future and into the acceptance of "all this, here and now." He studied astrophysics at Cambridge University. Following a period of depression and physical illness, he embarked on an intensive spiritual search that came to an end with the discovery that life itself was what he had always been seeking.
"Foster describes himself as someone who once wanted to die, but who later fell in love with his imperfect life and set out to offer hope to others...Though not every entry will fit the tastes of all readers, there is plenty of insight here, and Foster succeeds in showing his audience his many ways for pushing through life's greatest challenges." --Publishers Weekly "He (Jeff Foster) teaches readers to cultivate, rather than fear, their vulnerability, and to find peace with it." --Publishers Weekly "The Way of Rest reads like a long poem to waking up in life as it is. For free spirits and those interested in 'the pathless path, ' this book will be a great companion and friendly guide." --Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness "Beautifully written and deeply insightful, The Way of Rest is a series of songs from the deep Heart, inviting us to be intimate with our experience--no matter how difficult." --John J. Prendergast, PhD, author of In Touch
