Praise for Guardians of Being: “Eckhart Tolle and Patrick McDonnell fans will rejoice over Guardians of Being, the combined effort of these bestselling authors. This beautiful, thought-provoking, and enlightening book pairs Tolle’s ‘Power of Now’ mindfulness with McDonnell’s beloved Mutts characters, showing how we can find ‘true happiness in simple, seemingly unremarkable things’ by simply being present, a state that our dogs naturally occupy. The skillful use of the Mutts animals to illustrate Tolle’s theme renders his philosophy into easily grasped concepts. This thoroughly charming book deserves a place on your coffee table. While you’re at it, why not pick up a copy for your best friend, too?” – Modern Dog Magazine
