Taking guidance from the Buddha and a host of wise teachers Anda Peterson embarks on what she calls an “enlightenment experiment” as she sets out to practice non-attachment and discover a life of peace and fulfillment. Having first survived a traumatic childhood and later an abusive relationship, her purpose is to find genuine happiness despite not having all the things society claims she needs: a husband, paid-off mortgage, children, vacation home, and financial safety net. In this account of her journey, she captures the familiarity of everyday experience and transforms it into something close to the sacred. Her story of forgiveness, resilience, and liberation will inspire anyone dealing with a troubling past or an uncertain future.
