Be Your Shitty Self is a practical guide that will help you uncover and reconnect with your inner peace. Through concepts, exercises, and practical advice, Mark Van Buren explores how meditation and mindfulness can help you realize that who you are is already good enough. No matter how good or bad your life may seem to be, each moment can point you in the direction of peace, compassion, and awakening. Everything you need is already here in this moment. Just as a beautiful lotus flower blooms from the bottom of a murky pond, so too can your true essence shine from the depths of your shitty self.
