Editor Claude Whitmyer has organized in this book 34 essays in sections that parallel the divisions of the Buddhist Eightfold Path. This volume proclaims that it is possible to balance earning a living with personal fulfillment, creativity, community, and acting in compassionate ways. The Buddhist concept of right livelihood encourages us to see work as a sacred path. This theme comes across vividly in essays by John Daido Loori, Toni Packer, Janet Tallman, Marsha Sinetar, and Thich Nhat Hanh. "Mindfulness and Meaningful Work" exudes a bright seriousness on a topic of ultimate importance.
