Mindful Living Miraval: A Review

Hay House Publishing

My Thoughts:

Miraval is a luxurious spa retreat in Tuscon, Arizona. This would be a great coffee table nook. I receive a free digital copy from the publisher for my honest review. This book was NOT designed to be viewed digitally. The font was very small and too light to read. This is definitely a beautiful book you would want to flip through but not purchased digitally.

The photographs are absolutely gorgeous. Each chapter follows the calendar year and address a topic with that month. There are spa treatments, recipes, meditations.

Publisher's Synopsis:

Mindful Living is designed to help you more fully celebrate each moment of your life. Twelve specialists from the Miraval resort—ranging from exercise physiologists to chefs to spiritual healers—bring their expertise to chapters centered on the key tenets of the Miraval philosophy, such as balance, joy, and developing the ability to overcome obstacles. This book brings Miraval to the reader and is designed to be helpful for both those who have never visited and regular guests of the resort. Through recipes, exercises, meditations, and spa treatments, readers are shown a wide variety of practical ways to implement the changes they desire. While the topics addressed in Mindful Living may seem broad, they are held together through the concept of mindfulness. Mindfulness is the ability to live in the present, using simple tools like the breath to help you remain focused, calm, and capable of making the kind of decisions that will lead to a better life. Just as life is a journey, so is Mindful Living, moving through the months of the year and encouraging you to get the most out of each stage of the cycle.

I received this book free from NetGalley to review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment.
