Francine Toder - Inward Traveler (Sausalito Store)

Tuesday, October 16, 2018 - 6:00pm

Inward Traveler offers a series of adventures big and small, near and far, designed to make every moment richer and more mindfully experienced. From the smells of the Istanbul spice market, to the stark and wind swept tip of southern Chile, and to the dead-silent mountaintops on the island of Kauai, each stand-alone mini-chapter takes you on a journey to explore your inner thoughts, feelings and sensations while investigating the world that surrounds you.

Making the most of travel is what this book is all about. It’s a tech manual that teaches you how to bathe in positive experiences encountered, as well as ways to deal with trials and tribulations faced along the way. By conscious reframing you’ll learn how to alleviate some of the problems and stresses in life, while substituting positive feelings.

Whether your travels take you across an ocean or just across a street, Inward Traveler provides ways to sense the world deeply and in the present moment. Change may require a shift from the busy and somewhat distracted daily patterns that characterize the 21st century life style. You’ll find prompts in each of the51 chapters to guide you.

Rather than a traditional travel book recommending places and providing advice about packing or where to eat, Inward Traveler gives cues to enrich any experience through the process of heightened attention and immersion in experiences. Travel stories, anecdotes, and metaphors help you explore the process of living fully and in the moment—on journeys of any dimension.
