Jamial Yogis, author of Saltwater Buddha (SWB) and The Fear Project, has written his first children’s book, Turtles Don’t Surf (a sort of SWB for little ones)

I read an advanced copy of this book last summer and it is a lovely and touching tale about going beyond our limitations in a compassionate way.

Bravo and blessings to Jaimal on this new venture.

Here is a message from Jaimal:

Just a reminder that the launch for my first children’s book, Turtles Don’t Surf, is this Saturday at our new house across from Ocean Beach from 11 AM – 1 PM. Here are the details. There will be live music, a reading, a benefit raffle, and healthy snacks!

If you can’t make it, Turtles Don’t Surf is now on Amazon. Or you can get a signed copy through my website.

Coincidentally, Turtles Don’t Surf is the Book of the Week at Sensible Suggestions. And here’s a recent review!

Hope to see you this weekend!

P.S. — I’ve been doing readings at pre-schools around Northern California. Let me know if you’d like me to come to your school.

Mindfulness for Introverts
Mindfulness is a natural fit for introverts. The act of meditation itself is an introverted activity and at the same time equips introverts to navigate their interior without getting stuck in rumination. I recently wrote an essay for the Kripalu Thrive blog entitled Mindfulness for Introverts.
