“Practical, wise, and deeply compassionate, Work offers us a path for discovering the joy and inspiration that lies at the very heart of our household, livelihood, and daily routines.” —Michael Carroll, author of Awake at Work and The Mindful Leader

I am grateful; you will be as well.” ~Franz Metcalf, author of What Would Buddha Do?
