eeks of Conscious Contact
was born in Tibet. I made two trips to China and Tibet and climbed the sacred mountains. In my travels, I was struck again and again by the thought of how unhappy so many people are in our country despite having so much, and how
happy the people of Tibet are when they have so little. I realized that the difference is in the
practice of principles that make us happy. So, this is a book of practice and of living out our principles more than it is a meditation book.
oday Melody Beattie is a household name, and you have such a loyal following. How did this all come about? Why did you write your first book?
The first book that I’m known for is Codependent No More. Sometimes I hear people say,“Oh, she was just jumping on the self-help bandwagon when she wrote Codependent No More.”What they don’t realize is that there wasn’t a self-help bandwagon at that time.There wasn’t even a self-help section in bookstores.
