A beautiful final note from the pioneering author of the classic Notes to Myself
Gently Down This Dream is a book for those who are tired of striving and suffering and want to awaken to the peace and love that are within us all. When bestselling author Hugh Prather completed this book in 2010, he gave it to his wife and writing partner, Gayle, to shape and edit. He died the next day. The book's essays, poems, and aphorisms -- bravely self-revelatory, relentlessly compassionate, and born out of a lifetime of contemplative practice and counseling work -- make for a lovely, and loving, PS to his millions of fans and a winning introduction to his beautiful mind for new fans to come. They present the self-improvement practices that Hugh and Gayle learned in their long life together and later taught. The Prathers' authentic humor, comfort, and spiritual insights are perfect for the divisive times we live in, offering a way through what can often seem the prison of the self, a reliable means for navigating a world that sometimes feels out of control, and a path to love.
