HOW YOUR MIND CAN HEAL YOUR BODY
I love this book. I can see myself using it time and time again to, as Sandy suggests, “surrender to what is”, “go with the flow” and “simplify my life”. Oh the joy of a mind that is calm

WHY AM I SICK?
Mind Calm is packed full of fantastic information that not only calms the mind, but elicits a potential that moves us towards “genius”.
The book allows the reader to fully realize that if we only listen to the mind, we quickly tire of its discourse. Whereas if we silence the mind we connect with Source. Hurrah for MIND CALM!

Since learning Mind Calm, I can access my inner peace at any moment choose.
I don't have to be sitting in my meditation practice to do it, but I can be calm at any moment when going about my everyday life.

The best thing I've got from Mind Calm is the understanding that I can let my thoughts and emotions come and go, and get back to my calm conscious awareness.
It is such a free experience. After years of trying to strive for âpeace of mind', I can actually live a very serene life by developing a better relationship with the mind I have - it's just fantastic.

Have you seen the Monty Python comedy sketch â100-Metre Dash for People with No Sense of Direction'? Picture the scene: John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle and the rest of the runners are at the starting line. They are impatient and agitated as they wait for the starting gun to fire. Finally, the race begins, and everyone races off in different directions - meaning no one gets to the finishing line, no matter how fast they run. This sketch is a perfect metaphor for our mad-dash world, manic lifestyles and the chronic busyness that repeatedly takes us to our knees and makes us feel there must be a better way.
Where does this pressure come from to live so fast, to be so busy and so manic? Is it from society? Our upbringing? The media? Sandy Newbigging recognizes the external pressures, but he encourages us to look closer to home. In
, he shows us how to liberate ourselves from the inner mind-made pressures that cause us to race for our lives. What Sandy helps us to do is to stop suffering from our own psychology. He helps us to be the thinker of our
thoughts instead of the victim of our thoughts. He offers us liberation from fear, judgment and attachments.
In my work as a coach I see that
most people don't need more therapy, they just need more clarity.
Sandy sees this too. He takes us beyond the fix-it approach. He helps us cultivate a healthy relationship with our mind. That's his approach:
peace with mind
. Sandy coaches us on how to befriend our own mind, and he does it brilliantly. Step by step, he shows us how to stop suffering from psychology, so to speak, and to cultivate an awareness that makes an inner shift from
becoming happy to being happy
