Review: Exquisitely peaceful in and of itself, distilled as the best of poetry is, to essence, Janet Nestor has created a haiku-like presentation of all the world's greatest wisdoms in the slender handbook Pathways to Wholeness. This guide is generously personal, poetically practical, sublimely simple. Even before you begin to practice the exercises within its pages, just in the reading of this jewel of compassionate witness, you feel the journey begin, your own journey toward the “perfect center we all have that is wise, healthy, joyous, peaceful."
