What readers are saying about A Cup of Sunlight

‘Your book is reminding me of so many daily practices and rituals, as well as self-nurturing ways of being that I need to always keep in my consciousness.’ 

— Kathryn R


‘Your writings inspired me to think differently about the events that caused me pain. . . . I felt uplifted as I read.  I connected to a way of thinking about things and events in my life that meant I could feel joy and gratefulness about them, rather than sorrow or anger, and your book showed me a way to do that.’
