If life can feel at times like a challenging tightrope walk, how do we face life’s difficulties yet remain resilient and open-hearted? Rather than seeking “perfect” balance, or tiptoeing on our journey, how do we learn to embrace life and “dance”, in order to live most fully? In this book, clinical psychologist Beth Kurland reveals five common obstacles—habits of the mind that get in the way of living your fullest life—and five tools to transform these obstacles into lasting inner resources for resilience, peace, and joy.
This practical yet inspirational book draws upon evidence-based psychology practices and what neuroscience teaches us about the evolution and hardwiring of the brain, as well as Beth’s own personal experience and her clinical expertise from over twenty years in the field. It addresses the challenges of being human and offers insights on how to bring greater awareness, self-compassion, meaning and authentic happiness into our lives.
