    Stillness in the Storm is a deep source of wisdom and compassion. It describes how to be in moments that vary from great pain to delight and happiness. More than that, it describes the simple steps we can take to learn to be happy, fulfilled and at peace with this wonderful existence in each moment. It provides a set of resources – practices, recordings, phrases, insights – that can enable us to transform from lonely suffering to present fulfilment and happiness. It is a rare blend of knowledge about human behaviour, pain and happiness with spiritual insights and confidence, distilled into clear and straightforward practices that achieve that alchemy. Any of us on this mysterious and wonderful journey of existence can learn, grow and feel connected and happy by practising the seven steps to achieving Stillness in the Storm that Sarah Eagger and Jan Alcoe describe. All it requires is taking the steps they describe, one at a time in the storm, actively and purposefully towards a better being.
