New Book by Senior Non-Arab Correspondent and Health Reporter for The Arab Daily News is a political, medical and spiritual memoir
New book by Eileen Fleming began in 2013 when medical experts recommended the then 59 year old undergo bilateral total knee replacements to relieve pain due to bone on bone grinding.
Instead the retired nurse and full time writer and political peace activist began the practice of Yin Yoga, simple Breathing Techniques, Mindfulness and Meditation.
Fleming grew older and better and her experiences, medical research and a few short stories further the true story of a Wabi Sabi Body ETERNAL SPIRIT
Someone who is perfectly herself and never craves to be anything else would be described as wabi. Sabi by itself means the bloom of time.
Before the events of 11 September 2001, I was an apolitical privileged American who had embarked upon the inner journey.
That day we call 911 was the catalyst that transformed me into a spiritually driven political peace activist.
I began seeking peace politically after the events of 911, but until the fruits of a daily practice of mindfulness and meditation sprouted within me, I had also been one pissed off peace seeker!
Studies have shown that peace begins in our mind and hearts, builds in our families and schools and ultimately manifests in less and less violent cultures.
To become part of the solution, we have to start looking at our own culture first.
The short stories in this book do just that!
This book is also the bookend to my first published in 2007 with an olive tree on the front cover. I never imagined I would write a seventh book with another olive tree and me on the front cover.
I also could not imagine the ashes of my baby brother and our parents would be ‘planted’ in the wabi-sabi garden under that olive tree.
Wabi-sabi reminds us that we are all transient beings on this planet—that our bodies, as well as the material world around us, are in the process of returning to dust.
But before we do may we all practice the great art of living, which is also a chapter in Wabi Sabi Body ETERNAL SPIRIT!

Pieces of Peace
Family Trees and Knees
