OrangeReviewStarCasey (Change Your Mind and Your Life will Follow) has written a guidebook, based on her 12-step practice A Course in Miracles and daily custom of meditation and prayer, for a life that has accepted its past and is open to future possibilities. Each of Casey's 75 essays on subjects such as conquering anxiety, living in the moment, and changing the world, is followed by a short exercise for self-assessment.
VERDICT Written mainly for the older reader, these inspirational lessons, which would work well as a study group guide, not only invite reflection but encourage readers to improve their own and others' lives.
