Review quotes
“For all who are curious, willing, and open to working with our minds, Ani Trime has created the perfect vehicle to move, inspire, and guide us. These weekly affirmations, accompanied by such cool and unique illustrations, remind us simply yet powerfully that the choice to be free is ours. So, please feed your mind and keep this wonderful book next to your cushion or bedside, and most importantly, in your heart.” — Steve Buscemi, actor
“A succinct and eloquent guide for living mindfully. The rich variety of drawings offers a delightful counterpoint to Ani Trime’s wise, direct, and tender teachings. This beautiful little book is like a kind companion giving much needed encouragement in turbulent times.”  — Meredith Monk, composer, director, and performer
“I love [this] book. It’s a visual and sanity-inducing treat!” — Joel Cadman, art director, Wall Street Journal
“After years of serious study and practice, Trime believed that simplicity could cut through our habitual patterns and lead us to liberation. Out of this belief came this set of affirmations: short, hopeful, and always kind.” — Onryu Mary Stares, head of practice (tanto) at San Francisco Zen Center
“Ani Trime was an excellent teacher and a great friend. She taught by example and she was genuine always. With this little book of affirmations, you can see into Trime’s generous and gregarious heart and immerse yourself in the wisdom of her years.”  — James Kullander, program coordinator of Pema Chödrön’s retreats at the Omega Institute
