Peace, where is the peace? Peace in our countries, our homes, and especially in our hearts and minds? This cry of despair resounds through the centuries. Is it also the cry of your heart?

The world is worn out and full of worries. We need direction and guidance, security and confidence. What we need and desire is a quiet mind, at peace.

Often in our secular world, the most useful tool for dealing with stress is completely ignored or even discarded. Yet it is something that everyone can use to find peace of mind in a distressed world.
