Watkins (The Inner Gym) offers fresh insights into meditation, minimalism, and intentional living. Seven principles can serve as a gateway to a lifestyle aligned with one’s values and purpose. With an emphasis on prioritizing and cultivating inner happiness and making decisions from the heart’s voice, those who embrace uncomplicated meditation and minimalism will find new paths available that could not be seen before. Shedding material possessions is just one suggestion. The larger concept is challenging habits and conventions that conflict with an intentional life. How simply can a person live and what is to be gained from doing so? Curiosity leads to opportunities and connections. Giving what someone wants to receive can manifest that very thing. Once values are clarified, showing up fully in life means eliminating those useless throwaway moments and creating internal space. These principles can require becoming comfortable with discomfort, yet ultimately they simplify one’s choices opening up new vistas. Do less, accomplish more, reduce stress, and enjoy the process.
VERDICT The principles are not new, but collectively present thoughtful perspective for achieving inner peace and an increased level of personal freedom. For most public libraries.
