Listening Now: An Alternative to Suicide is a practical guide written for those who have known the torment of deep depression. Author Lisa Kang, herself a suicide attempt survivor who lives with mental illness, found freedom from her own self-destructive impulses when she learned the skill of inner listening.
This accessible manual is designed to be read sequentially over the course of twelve months, with twelve chapters, four subsections for each week of the month, and seven meditation questions for each day of the week, but the book can be effectively studied out of order as well.
Each day's meditation teaches and demonstrates a step in developing an attentive internal ear-essentially the ability to recognize and listen to your genuine self.
If you've cultivated the habit of hearing and trusting your own voice, your eyes will be opened to the truth of your authentic identity, the abundant love available to you, and a renewed hope and vision for the future.

About the Author
Lisa Kang has spent much of her life struggling with emotional difficulties, suicidal ideation, and paranoid thinking. She believed that her identity was rooted in the way she thought, and this led her to try to take her own life. After this suicide attempt, she began to understand that her true self is much more than the sum of her thoughts and feelings.
Kang then learned the skill of inner listening, which has completely healed her of her desire to end her own life. She hopes that sharing this skill will help others suffering from suicidal ideation and impulses.
