Well, I've just described a wonderful new and absolutely marvelous book by Jerry Bartholow
called Peace Soup
.I just love how Chef Jerry has put together his recipe.
It is such a nice, unique means to get across such a vital message.Peace Soup
is the recipe for peace via freedom from stress.It starts on the outside (like peeling an onion) uncovering deeper and deeper stress found on both the mental as well as the emotional levels.Chef Bartholow, using a unique and captivating "cooking" analogy makes this journey easy and uncomplicated while offering common sense, spiritual advice.
The reader is guided to (first) understand the body and its function in a peaceful life.Then Chef Jerry gives us the means to starting peeling away the stress using his sound advice about everything from meditations to correct foods.
dietary regimens for cleansing are worth the price of the book, alone.
But Peace Soup
is even more than that.Chef Jerry (who is, by the way, a successful businessman and pastor of his Unity church) offers a new and better way to conduct your life, naturally!His
wisdom has its roots in both Eastern as well as Western philosophies combined with modern and proven medical and psychological techniques and exercises.Peace Soup
is a delightful means to "cook up" a better life.Chef Jerry offers us a tasty recipe that is filling (with spirituality), satisfying (with love and compassion) and nourishing (with the ingredients for growth).This fine book comes with a CD of Chef Jerry leading you through the relaxation and meditation exercises that he has been teaching for the past thirty years.Peace Soup
, in this reviewer's opinion, is required reading!"- ..
own techniques acquired over years of teaching with the wisdom of others, Bartholow
helps each of us prepare our own inner peace soup to share with others and with our world.
The idea of "Look in!"rather than "Watch Out!"
