Praise

“Sometimes there is no difference between a book and a blessing. In Philip Simmons has blessed us all.”
— Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D., author of Kitchen Table Wisdom and My Grandfather’s Blessings

“Pure poetry, tinged with irony and humor, in the voice of a present-day Thoreau whose Walden is his family, the landscape of New Hampshire, and a young body fading away. A deeply moving rhapsody on inhabiting the human condition.”
— Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Full Catastrophe Living and Wherever You Go, There You Are

“Philip Simmons writes with clarity and a passion for honesty, laced with wit. An extraordinary book.”
— Elaine Pagels, Princeton University, author of The Gnostic Gospels

“Generous and genuine, like water from a deep well, halfway between a meditation and a dance, this book is an act of grace.”
— Jack Kornfield, author of A Path With Heart and After the Ecstasy, the Laundry

Learning to Fall is for anyone who loves life — or needs to love it more…. A wonderful achievement.”
— Balfour Mount, M.D., Professor of Palliative Medicine, McGill University

“Not only has Philip Simmons figured out the meaning of life for himself; with prodigious literary grace he has figured out how to tell us too. Required reading for Basic Humanity 101.”
— Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, author of Invisible Lines of Connection
