"My son thinks the book is excellent. He was up late in his his bed with a flashlight doing the writing after reading the the whole thing in just a couple hours. And I'm impressed how well he is grasping a concept like higher self. I've struggled with explaining it to kids."
- Jonathan Thompson, Psychedelic Parenting
Now more than ever, future generations need tools to help them practice loving kindness, mindfulness, and acceptance. They're not getting them in the media, and they're certainly not getting them in schools.
This book will introduce children to concepts that we, as adults, are becoming more and more familiar with. Things like meditation, presence, gratitude - all, of course, by way of a relatable (and, sure, somewhat snarky) guide, the reader's Inner Self (IS).
It is a story, it is a journal, it is a book of exercises and tools, and most of all, it is a guide to living in presence for young people.

- Copies to distribute to bookstores, events, and supporters (like you!)
Oh, like, aside from the satisfaction of helping children all over the world on a spiritual journey through mindfulness, at a time when they - and civilization as a whole! - need it most? Yes?
Okay, sure, I was just checking.
I have written six books. Six books about adventure, fantastical lands, mystical peoples, trees who can talk - Hell, if it's fantasy, I have probably written about it. But this book is not fantasy - and yet, it feels like the most magical of them all. And it's important.
Can you imagine a world where children learn early on how to be mindful? Present? Compassionate?
Can you imagine if we had all been brought up like this?
Can you imagine?
Help me make this a reality.
Risks and challenges
The good news is, there isn't much risk in this project, as the book is already written and I will be illustrating and publishing it myself. I can only imagine that once published, promoting it myself might be a challenge as I reside nearly full-time in Writing Land, far away from Marketing.
I'll give it my best, though. And this Kickstarter is certainly a start!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
