Every self-help book tells us to "be present," but few succeed in showing us how. Christina leads readers to discover how the small, and seemingly mundane aspects of daily life can—through a shift in focus—become a springboard for the profound. It is an antidote to the perpetual rush we experience daily; and to that feeling that there will never be enough time to begin, to commit to a creative practice, or to become whatever it is we want most to be.
Part adventure guide and part survival guide, A Field Guide To Now is filled with thought starters and creative exercises that will lead you to uncover your own extraordinary life amidst the ordinary moments of very day. It will make you laugh. It will make your heart sing. It will give you a reason to pause. Above all else, this book is call to take action, to live wholly into the present, and to persist in becoming whatever your heart yearns to be.
