Lotus Flowers and Superpowers

by Julie Seel Renaud

Lotus Flowers and Superpowers takes the reader on a mindfulness-inspired adventure into science and the natural world. Generously sprinkled with humor, quirky and fascinating facts about wildlife, and the concepts and core processes of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), we are invited into the magical world of Fry, a Koi fish born into the “little pond nestled between two pine trees whose tops touch the sky.”

Fry’s colorful and imaginative journey teaches us that unhooking and making space for painful or challenging thoughts, feelings, and emotions and bringing our attention to what is happening in the here and now can make life a little easier. While practicing self-compassion, we can invest our energy into choosing actions that bring us closer to our values—who we want to be, and the people and things we care about—to live a happier and more meaningful life. Or, in Fry’s words, “Live with all our hearts.”
