"This book is carries vital medicine for today's world. Ben Connelly speaks from the heart of Zen and reminds of our true and innate capacity for intimacy, that we can always take one step from where we are to heal the myth of separation. Mindfulness and Intimacy offers practices and contemplations that affirm the embodiment of interconnection through everyday ordinary life. I recommend it for everyone!"--Deborah Eden Tull, author of Relational Mindfulness: A Handbook for Deepening Our Connection with Ourselves, Each Other, and Our Planet
"With clarity and grace, Ben Connelly affirms the deep intimacy needed for true awakening. From his conscientious and reflective work, the path into our sleepy interior worlds unfolds beautifully into the light step by step. We only need courage to stand in such radiance. Highly recommended."

--Zenju Earthlyn Manuel, author of The Way of Tenderness: Awakening Through Race, Sexuality, and Gender

"Our true heart's desire is connection: intimacy. Yet our minds and hearts are often focused on what separates us from other people and the rest of creation. In this clear and helpful book Zen teacher Ben Connelly presents twenty-seven aspects of our life that, through the practice of mindfulness, can become fertile fields for dissolving our sense of alienation and deepening our experience of interdependence and intimacy."

--Jan Chozen Bays, author of How to Train a Wild Elephant
