Vernon Sankey and Katey Lockwood are the authors of The Way: Finding Peace in Turbulent Times. When they published the book 18 months ago they could not have predicted that the world would soon be facing the Covid-19 crisis, yet this is exactly what they did. In The Way, Katey and Vernon specifically point out that the world is in denial about the threats it faces, including a global pandemic. They claim that a catastrophe such as a pandemic will resonate globally and there will be nowhere to hide in our networked world. How right they have turned out to be. Their book helps readers understand how negative thoughts, fears and anxieties arise and how best to deal with them. Vernon and Katey explain why the world appears to be increasingly stressed and what we can do about it, both as individuals and as a collective. The authors take us through their top tips for dealing with lockdown restrictions, the difference between ego-based love and unconditional love and why the Buddha is always pictured with a smile on his face.
