Overview

This inspiring and prescriptive book leads us from the emotional chaos of the reactive mind to the clarity of the responsive mind

As Founder of the Life Balance Institute, Phillip Moffitt has observed that most people lack clarity about their life's direction and the ability to cope with its inevitable challenges. Now, in Emotional Chaos to Clarity, he provides the antidote by showing us the path of skillful living. Grounded in Western psychology and Buddhist philosophy, each chapter introduces a mind state that prevents us from living skillfully, narrates stories from Moffitt's hundreds of students and clients, and provides step-by-step exercises for readers to find clarity in their own lives. Among the many benefits of skillful living are being able to gain wisdom from both pleasant and unpleasant experiences and having an inner life which can flourish, even if our outer life is filled with difficulty.

For years I have been reading articles by Phillip Moffit in Yoga Journal. Imagine my dismay when he was no longer writing for them but doing other work. I was very excited to find out that he had written the book which was the reason for quitting Yoga Journal writing. I find the information very helpful particularly in learning to live in the present rather dreaming of the future or regretting/longing for the past. The book works well with his other Life Balance internet offerings.
