“Turning Straw Into Gold” draws on many of the themes in my books. I explore how to live with compassion, joy, and purpose in the midst of life’s challenges, especially chronic pain and illness. Our struggles and difficulties can be the seeds of awakening to a peace and well-being that aren’t dependent on our circumstances. This is a path that all of us can follow, regardless of our backgrounds.
