A Peaceful Life is Possible ~ Mindfulness Meditation Handbook

A Peaceful Life is Possible book by Aoife Valley

A Peaceful Life is Possible handbook demystifies the process of meditation and provides a simple yet thorough introduction to mindfulness meditation techniques.

Part One explores what it's like to be a human being with a body/mind that thinks, feels, senses and remembers. It explains how mindfulness strengthens a sense of responding rather than reacting to life's ups and downs.

Part Two guides the reader through four simple yet powerful meditations, and explains how to easily integrate these into a daily routine. When one strengthens mindfulness and compassion daily, an effortless capacity to learn from the past and create a positive future occurs. The practise of these meditations allows  the bad habit of stressful living to dissolve and our own unique soul presence then has a chance to flourish.

Part Three's short chapters explore situations, life stages and relationships we all find ourselves in, and shows how the cultivation of mindfulness and compassion changes them all for the better. The chapters show that there is no part of life that mindfulness cannot enhance - from driving to eating, and body image to creativity, we can all navigate the days of our lives in greater harmony.

Sitting in between the religious and the secular, this book speaks to the majority of people, who want their lives to be healthier and happier, without necessarily having to buy into any particular dogma.

Visiting the Girl ~ Spiritual Memoir

Visiting the Girl Memoir by Aoife Valley

Published March 2017

Recounted in a unique narrative style, the author 'visits' the girl she once was, taking us deep, to a cellular level, into the suffering of a child abused and neglected; all the while holding the reader's hand and whispering that there is hope, even amidst the darkest moments and the chaos of war.
The girl discovers that in her seeming isolation she is not alone, as she finds a growing presence and strength within herself and the natural world, that the adults around her, in their brutality, can never touch.
Through her beautifully ethereal writing Aoife offers an antidote to trauma, and sends a message out to the world - that life is here, life is now, and you are already whole.
