"It's not just a book of helpful tips to overcome our tendencies to consume and to hoard; it's a book for anybody who wants to reflect on how they can pursue happiness is a world where everything is conspiring to make us think happiness lies in our power as consumers to buy what we want."
-- Dr. Philip J. Harold, Associate Dean, School of Education and Social Sciences, RMU
This guide to simplifying for health, joy, and creativity teaches:
And much more.
"If you are on your way to becoming a minimalist (like our family) this book will encourage you to keep going. If you are still living in clutter this book could well be the "kick" you need to really start cleaning out."
--Richard and Liz Pomeroy, Cornish Heritage Ventures
"This work is true to the nature of the subject material in being very minimalist. And that makes it really awesome. This isn't a checklist or a "system" to follow but a different way to think about the relationships that we have to the things we "own," the relationships we have with the spaces around us and the relationships that we have with other people and our inner selves."
The second book in Cary David Richard’s two book series on minimalist living details how to simplify your space and gives you down to earth real world strategies for declutering your home.
After being forced by circumstances to downsize and simplify Cary David and his wife Jeannie came to realize that their new minimalist life style had some very tangible and far reaching benefits. They began to re-think their previous lives of consumerism and the habit of accumulating more and more “stuff”.
Through the conscious implementation of minimalist living concepts, the couple realized that living with less brought a freedom and serenity not available in their previous lives.
Never setting out to become minimalist, they embarked on a journey of simplicity and discovered what was most important to them in the process.
Through the lessons that Cary David and Jeannie learned over the last seven years of exploring minimalism you will come away with a new understanding of the benefits of decluttering your life.
Once free of the burden of clutter and complexity new vistas will open to you. Just imagine being able to breathe again, living in a serene, nurturing, welcoming environment, free of stress and worry.
