Nothing to Grasp

Price: $14.95

In response to a challenge from a friend to 'distill her essential message into a concise format' Joan has written the beautifully succinct, Nothing to Grasp.

Joan says of her new book:
"The book is an invitation to wake up from commonplace misconceptions and to see through the imaginary separate self at the root of our human suffering and confusion. Nothing to Grasp is a celebration of what is, exactly as it is."
