"Every art requires a great deal of practice to develop. The Art of Being
provides hundreds of mindfulness exercises that invite you to experiment
with your life and shape it with your own creativity."
~ Gary Zukav
Author, The Seat of the Soul
In The Art of Being, Dr. Jones generously, gently and powerfully
offers the gifts of his own journey. He has taken the universal truths of
the New Thought-Ancient Wisdom tradition of spirituality and shown their
relevance to the challenges we face in twenty-first century living. Most
importantly, the spiritual brilliance of his own intimate experiences on
the path to waking up unfolds for the reader a transformative understanding
that inspires the soul into action. May this book be for you a special
friend, an introduction to the Power and Presence of that which we call
God, the very Essence that invites you to be you."

"The Art of Being is a Spiritual Jewel. I read it flying from
Los Angeles to Toronto after a long day; it held my attention and left
me feeling mentally refreshed. I felt like I was flying with a good
friend that not only stimulated me, but brought a much wiser me to the
surface of my consciousness. This is the book you want to share with
your friends - I know I will."
