Marking the 25th anniversary of the original Simple Abundance — updated and expanded for a whole new generation that needs it now more than ever — this mega-bestselling guide continues to lead countless women to more fulfilling, harmonious, and joyful lives.

“Sarah Ban Breathnach is a one-woman women’s movement, an awakener of awareness whose simple message has timeless roots…She exemplifies a surging social movement much greater than herself. This is just the subversively cosmic voice society needs.” — Deepak Chopra
First published in 1995, Simple Abundance topped the New York Times Bestseller list for over two years and is responsible for introducing two hugely popular concepts–the “Gratitude Journal” and the term “Authentic Self.” With daily inspirational meditations and reflections, the Simple Abundance phenomenon became a touchstone for a generation of women, helping them to reclaim their true selves, find balance during life’s busiest moments, and rediscover what makes them truly happy.
Simple Abundance’s powerful messages are needed now more than ever, as we navigate the discord and stress instigated by a constant stream of “breaking news” cycles, and our 24/7 social media culture. Sarah Ban Breathnach has refreshed her bestselling phenomenon to address the needs of a new generation, with her signature candor, wit, and wisdom that made her a trusted and compassionate confidant for millions of women.
A perennial classic whose time has come again, Sarah’s work celebrates quiet joys, simple pleasures, and well-spent moments and reminds us how to find the beauty in the everyday.
