The Well of Being: a children's book for adults

The Well of Being just went out of print three months ago, and the rights reverted back to the Jean-Pierre. He purchased back the overstock of 3,000 copies which are in the process of being of being shipped back to Jean-Pierre. If you are willing to wait, pre-order now, and we will do everything we can to ship out the books as soon as they arrive and definitely well before the holiday season. Sorry for the inconvenience, Tim Faris's post caught us off guard.

The Well of Being, a children’s book for adults, is a journey, narrated with simple words and paintings. It is about the wellbeing we long for, yet often only dimly remember and may no longer believe in.

Through images and simple text, the reader will encounter new ideas. Ideas about the patterns of thinking which sometimes constrict our view of who we are and how this world works.

The book’s originality is not for the sake of breaking rules and being quirky, but rather, to penetrate the reader’s heart and break it. The Well of Being promises to bring us back to a world that is coherent and whole and beautiful. I hope that it will bring pleasure and the sense of remembering something we always knew, but have forgotten. Beyond that, I wish for its perennial teaching to be understood and shared between friends.
