Schmidt believes that making subtle shifts in the day will improve inner happiness, creating a positive ripple effect on all areas of life. In her new book, THE PRACTICE (HCI Books), Barb has structured an easy-to-implement, three-part daily routine- Waking Up, Living Present, Letting Go-that will help you look inward, cultivating the beautiful qualities of acceptance, gratitude, patience, compassion, strength, and courage. Barb provides readers with a set of practical tools that can be used throughout the day to help cultivate a peaceful mind so that readers can live their best lives filled with happiness, love, mindfulness, and purpose – the magnificent life that we are all meant to live.
THE PRACTICE is a set of practical tools that can be used throughout the day to guide us along life’s path. It is a compilation of the great Truths taught by authentic teachers and masters throughout the centuries from various religious and spiritual traditions. It is for people who are looking to deepen their connection to their innermost selves.
Barb has garnered followers from across the globe through her charismatic and radiant personality driven by the quest to find happiness and peace. THE PRACTICE begins with Barb’s own personal path of self-discovery, which began as a part of her recovery from her personal battle with bulimia. Throughout THE PRACTICE, Barb shares with readers the timeless truths and wisdoms she has learned through her nearly thirty years of study and practice with many of the modern-day masters. Each chapter concludes with “Parting Seeds” – key takeaway points discussed in the chapter to keep in mind as you go about your day.
