Change is both scary business and an inescapable fact of life. Everything is impermanent and eventually passes away. Some changes are natural, like aging through the lifecycle. Others are sudden and catastrophic, such as illness, bankruptcy, or the death of a loved one. Change is an opportunity to shed the limitations of the lower self and be reborn to the higher self. This book is an inspiring and practical guide to that process, incorporating personal stories, cutting-edge psychological research, and the perennial philosophy of the world’s great wisdom traditions. This book includes a CD which is a body-based mindfulness meditation that guides you in developing moment-by-moment awareness and honoring emotions and other experiences without attachment as they arise and pass away. The CD is suitable for daily use both by beginners and experienced meditators.
