Overview

For all of us trying to find quiet and harmony in an increasingly fast-paced and disordered age, this new addition to the Arts of Living series offers inspired lessons from the natural world on mastering the art of patience.
In Patience, author Akiko Busch gathers personal anecdotes, descriptions of natural phenomena, and quotations from enlightened thinkers to explore the meaning of patience and its relationship to time. Readers will discover insights on every page, as the conversation shifts from the “time margin” one uses to accommodate life's unexpected delays to the “Slow Art” that allows us to experience an image as an event, from growing meadows to Buddhist mindfulness.
