The six essays gathered in The Art of Living: Volume I reveal the nature of this inner dimension of life and lay down basic principles of creative living. As Dr. C. Norman Shealy writes in his foreword, "If the great leaders of the world will read and take advantage of the expert philosophy provided by Dr. Leichtman and Mr. Japikse, our world will indeed be revitalized. Anyone interested in creating a more harmonious, successful, and rewarding life will benefit from reading and using the material in this book."
This is the first of five volumes on The Art of Living, each containing six essays by Dr. Leichtman and Mr. Japikse. The titles of the essays contained in volume one are:
Enriching the Personality
The Practice of Detachment
Finding Meaning in Life
Building Right Human Relationships
The Spirit of Generosity
As the title The Art of Living suggests, Dr. Leichtman and Mr. Japikse view life as an art form which can be pursued more successfully if we understand the basic principles underlying life. In each essay, they explore a specific area of human life and offer practical steps which readers can take in their own lives.
