All of us want to live a calmer, more peaceful existence. Thomas and Beverly Bien teach that if we find the center within through ongoing mindfulness, we will have the capacity to live deeply and fully–with boundless peace and happiness–in any external circumstance. We can learn to be calm in the midst of the storm.
Finding the Center Within offers a step-by-step program for breaking down the barriers that prevent us from actualizing our wise inner self. The Biens combine Eastern spiritual wisdom with the pragmatic wisdom of Western psychology, teaching us how to remove the walls that conceal who and what we really are and face our lives with greater honesty. They provide the tools needed to:
Find a path to the center through mindfulness
Bring meditation into everyday life
Work with and transform negative emotions
Cultivate healthy, healing relationships
Use dreams to achieve maximum wholeness and self-acceptance
You’ll discover how to find greater peace, joy, and love in your life and deepen your capacity for psychological and spiritual well-being. Let Finding the Center Within inspire and guide you as you make the journey to awareness and open yourself to a world of happiness.
