The Soul of Sailing is a powerful and far-reaching examination of how we live and how the deeper lessons of setting sail can enrich our everyday lives. It explores how we can avoid the pitfalls of introspection to reconnect with the greater world, how we can rely on our hands and bodies to educate our minds, and how the enduring traditions of the sea can bring order and beauty to our lives. The author brings his dual experience as a psychotherapist and professional sailor to bear on the problems that haunt our times and shows how the calming focus provided by traditional skills and interaction with nature can nurture the soul. This is a book filled with spiritual wisdom and thought-provoking discoveries that marked such books as Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Care of the Soul, and The Soul’s Code. It is a book for sailors and non-sailors alike, but foremost, it is anyone who seeks deeper truths in practical things.
