WOMEN WERE CREATED TO EXPERIENCE, INTERPRET, REVEL IN, AND UNRAVEL THE MYSTERIES OF LIFE THROUGH THEIR SENSES. OUR SENSES SPEAK THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF THE SOUL—LONGING. IF THERE IS ANYTHING EVERY WOMAN UNDERSTANDS—WHETHER SHE IS SINGLE OR MARRIED, EIGHTEEN OR EIGHTY—IS THE DIALECT OF DESIRE. EMOTION IS THE FEMININE MOTHER TONGUE.
― ROMANCING THE ORDINARY
#1 "New York Times" bestselling author Sarah Ban Breathnach takes readers to a new level of personal fulfillment and spiritual awareness as they learn to rediscover and savor the sensual experience of daily life.
Romancing the Ordinary celebrates the spirituality of the senses, seasonally and monthly. Sarah Ban Breathnach believes that women are endowed not with five senses but with seven. In addition to rediscovering sight, sound, scent, taste, and touch, readers will come to cherish their sense of "knowing"--a woman's intuitive sense--and "wonder," her sense of rapture and reverence.
Drawing on myth, literature, film, music and drama, Sarah encourages each woman to discover what moves her to tears, makes her heart skip a beat, and her soul sigh. Interwoven with the reflections are seasonal indulgences intended to restore weary feminine souls--rituals, decorating, fashion and gardening hints. By encouraging her to delight in the often overlooked gifts of every day--from the aroma of simmering homemade spaghetti sauce to the sensation of freshly laundered linen against bare skin--Romancing the Ordinary is sure to help every woman fall in love with Life.
A comforting reference for the weary-hearted, those in need
of pampering, or who are looking for sheer escapism on a cold winter's day.
