"As human beings, we have instincts for both good and evil, conscious and unconscious. To rectify ourselves--to live spiritually and properly--involves getting a handle on these impulses."
--from the Introduction
In this special book of practical wisdom, Dr. Abraham J. Twerski draws from his extensive professional experience as a psychiatrist and spiritual counselor, a life-long student of Jewish wisdom texts, and his personal experience as a son of a wise Chassidic rabbi to give us practical lessons for life that we can put to day-to-day use in dealing with ourselves and others.
In a presentation as warm and witty as it is profound, Dr. Twerski combines lively anecdotes, personal musings, and insights and wisdom from sources ranging from Freud to the great Talmudic and Torah scholars throughout the ages. And with deep compassion and refreshing candor, he shows how these wisdom teachings can guide us in all moments of our lives, whatever our faith tradition.From the Inside Flap
How do you wish to live?
The choices we make are significantly affected by how we view ourselves--our identity--and how we feel about what we see--our self-esteem. If we can change the way we see ourselves, we can change the way we interact with others and the choices we make, helping us to live compassionately and achieve spiritual well-being.
Weaving anecdotes from his counseling career with stories from the Hebrew Bible and Jewish wisdom literature, Dr. Twerski illustrates the Jewish tradition's enduring freshness and vitality for initiating self-actualization and personal improvement to help you:
* Form an accurate self-image and overcome low self-esteem
* Control pride and other destructive instincts and impulses
* Create and maintain healthy and loving relationships
* Manage grief, healing your body and spirit
* Learn to trust and enhance personal happiness
* Cope with despair and find hope
* Repair the world by improving yourself
