Whether out of inspiration or desperation, our desire to grow mentally and emotionally is part of our life, part of evolution. However, problems may arise when skills are needed but absent. This book, along with the accompanying audio instructions, contains all you will need to develop invaluable mental, emotional and behavioral skills – skills that we don’t inherit or learn through reading or observing others, no matter how blessed we may have been with kind and mindful parents and grandparents.
The step-by-step experiential approach will expand your understanding of your experiences and those of others. It will enable you to witness rapid change, day after day, within a few weeks. Across countries and cultures, people of all ages (from about age 7), even those with severe and often chronic mental health problems, report remarkable benefits in a relatively short period of time.
This book is written primarily to improve your emotional well-being and sense of contentment, whether you suffer from psychological and emotional difficulties or not. It will guide you progressively through four steps that will enhance your sense of well-being through a lasting experience of joy, peace, and contentment.
