Overview

We already possess everything we need to have satisfying relationships and a happy, fulfilling life; all we need to do is learn how to bring forth our natural wisdom—which includes our innate kindness, understanding, and courage. Psychotherapist David Richo draws on four decades of his counseling experience to create this manual on how to nurture the best in ourselves and our relationships. He teaches how to access our natural abilities to:

   • Care for ourselves as the basis of caring for others
   • Find freedom from fear
   • Maintain healthy boundaries in relationships
   • Develop greater honesty with ourselves and others
   • Let go of regret

The book also includes practical exercises—including journaling, contemplation, and guided meditations—to foster inward growth and lasting positive change.

This book is a completely revised and updated edition of Everyday Commitments.

From the Publisher
"Easy to digest and will undoubtedly assist readers in achieving positive change."—Library Journal
Library Journal

In an effort to help individuals bring proper spiritual etiquette into a world full of greed, hate, and delusion, psychotherapist and author Richo (How To Be an Adult in Relationships: The Five Keys to Mindful Loving) offers 52 ways to express kindness and compassion in everyday life. Daily readings open with a single commitment followed by a short commentary containing a practical exercise. For example, the commitment to avoid gossip includes an explanation of why the practice is tempting as well as an exercise for speaking directly to people whose behavior has been unwelcome. The page-long chapters are easy to digest and will undoubtedly assist in achieving positive change. Recommended for most libraries.
