Mindful Addict : A Memoir of the Awakening of a Spirit

- +

Mention the sixties and readers conjure images of sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll. Author Tom Catton not only lived through the sixties, he remembers them, and that's where this memoir begins, as Catton, an addict by his early-twenties and currently in recovery for almost forty years, recounts his adventures. These were both physical and spiritual, as he sought new experiences and insights, first by means of drugs and eventually through the study and practice of meditation and introspection.åÊAlong the way, he journeyed across the world, from the beaches of Hawaii to the streets of Kolkata (Calcutta), meeting remarkable 'teachers,' like the magnetic Flobird, who became his mentor, his spiritual guide, and his friend. She inhabits the pages of this book, along with other singular world figures Catton met in his sojourn, like the Dalai Lama and Mother Teresa. They are all here, in The Mindful Addict, and their lessons and love infuse these pages with wisdom and heart.
