About the Book

The field of law is notorious for causing burn-out and disillusionment, with lawyers ultimately finding a loss of meaning and purpose in their lives. There are currently over 1.1 million lawyers in the U.S., and many attorneys express professional discontent and are seeking solutions. (44% surveyed by the ABA said they would not recommend the profession to a young person. The New York Times, 1/6/08).

This 376-page, meditation-a-day book is designed to help lawyers recover from spiritual bankruptcy. Each daily entry includes an introductory quotation, followed by a refection inspired by that quotation. Themes found in the book include overcoming fear, personal beliefs and values, maintaining integrity, personally defining success, dealing with difficult people, and common workplace challenges.

This is the only book of it's kind written just for lawyers. Reverse the burnout trend, and discover how easy it is to put energy and enthusiasm back into your career with this once-a-day meditation strategy, you won't be disappointed. It makes a great gift, too. Special bulk pricing is available.

What Others are Saying

"The model for all daily meditation books! Every single page of this book overflows with wisdom that reminds you who you really are and that helps you realize who you dream of becoming. If you are a lawyer and do these daily meditations your work will become your life practice but no matter what you do this book will cultivate a nobility of spirit that will transform your daily activities into a sacred art."
--Rabbi Irwin Kula, Author, Yearnings: Embracing the Sacred Messiness of Life and President, The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership

"A remarkable book! (It's) a splendid contribution to legal education."
--Bob MacCrate, Past President of the American Bar Association

"With an impressive range of nondoctrinaire selections the authors provide nourishment for busy lawyers mindful of their own humanity."
--Christopher Morse, Dietrich Bonhoeffer Professor of Theology and Ethics Union Theological Seminary

"One of the most uplifting and heartfelt books of its kind that I have seen. The uniquely qualified authors achieve a real empathic understanding and have put forth a valuable and very welcome guide for soul-searching lawyers, eager to find meaning and purpose beyond the daily grind... highly recommended."
--James B. Snyder, M.D., Director and Founder, Long Island Psychiatric, Roslyn, N.Y.
