Sakura is a small tree. She wants the spring months to never end. Spring is her flowers
blossoming with their lovely fragrance and the laughter of children constantly playing around
her… Yet time passes and Sakura transforms. Just like everything else in the world…
Transience is one of the fundamental concepts of mindfulness. Times when we are sad or
angry pass just like the times when we are happy. And when we know how our inner
experience will transform, we accept difficult situations more easily.
With this book that also includes mindfulness and breathing exercises, children learn to better
adapt to ever-changing conditions and to remain calmer as they await change.
