Return of the Urban Warrior: High-Speed Spirituality For People on the Run Paperback – by The Barefoot Doctor

As pictured
Good cond

Barefoot Doctor is a British Taoist healer with a refreshingly frank attitude. Unlike many other self-help books, Return of the Urban Warrior doesn't aim to help you slow down your stressful life, but rather to ride along with it, in the true spirit of the Tao. It's not about giving up your life-style, your mobile phone, your lover; "It's not a question of the spiritual or the profane," he says, "but the spiritual and the profane".

Oddly, for a book meant to grab us with fast-paced ideas we can use in our fast-paced lives, it's a little slow-starting; the Barefoot Doctor has a casual, laid-back style almost at variance with his message. But once it gets going, there's barely a moment to pause. This isn't a book to be read straight through, cover to cover, but one to work through slowly, page by page, until each exercise in it becomes second nature. --David V Barrett

"Barefoot Doctor is the modern day equivalent of a nomadic healer (but he's also got) enough charm and humour to make palatable at least some of the pseudospiritual psychobabble his vocation involves" DAILY TELEGRAPH

"A charismatic figure with a calming way (of helping his charges) … one to catch." TIME OUT

"(After one hour of healing), the sense of lifted spirits and serenity is overwhelming" VOGUE Please click here to ask a question
