9780142196762: Emotional Chaos to Clarity: Move from the Chaos of the Reactive Mind to the Clarity of the Responsive Mind

Emotional Chaos to Clarity recognises the inevitability of life's challenges and offers you the tools to find clarity, resilience and calm to cope even at our darkest hours. Balancing Phillip Moffitt's influences of Western psychology and Buddhist philosophy, each chapter introduces a mind state that prevents us from living skilfully, 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. The pragmatic and immediately applicable lessons of this book include:

. Learning how wisdom is offered by both pleasant and unpleasant experiences, and how to harvest this wisdom

. How to move away from mistaken ideas about your true nature that cause damaging emotional states

. Methods you can use to fulfil your lifelong intentions, or set new goals for a better life

. How to generate transformative feelings of gratitude, generosity and forgiveness.

With powerful anecdotes from some of the hundreds of people Philip has led to a better life, Emotional Chaos to Clarity provides total inspiration for a content, calm and collected you.

Review:

In Emotional Chaos to Clarity, Philip Moffitt maps out a path for opening and expanding our sense of what is possible, what we are capable of, what will bring us true happiness. He also shows us step-by-step how to apply acceptance, kindness, awareness, and compassion in order to make those aspirations come to life. To move from emotional chaos to clarity is not a minor journey, but it is possible, and for any one of us, it can be real. (Sharon Salzberg author of Lovingkindness and The Power of Meditation)

Emotional Chaos to Clarity is a masterwork. Be inspired by the possibilities it opens. Be strengthened by the guidance it offers in decision making. Be surprised by the illumination that comes when you contrast your ideals with your actual days. And be encouraged in the midst of your life challenges by the power and love that comes when you see and live by your highest intentions. (Jack Kornfield, PhD author of The Wise Heart and A Path With Heart)

Phillip Moffitt takes the profound insights of the wisdom traditions and translates them into simple and effective steps to stable inner strength, happiness, and peace. His unique gift is his own deep grounding in what it really takes to be fully engaged with life while remaining clear-headed and happy. An extraordinary book. (Rick Hanson, PhD author of Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom)

Phillip Moffitt presents a clear path to living an authentic and intentional life. He has a profound understanding of how emotions distort our perceptions and how we can create new, healthy habits of mind. (Dean Ornish, M.D. author of The Spectrum)

Building on a history of finding his way out of a meaningless, albeit successful, worldly life into a life of service, Phillip Moffitt has crafted a highly practical handbook for navigating the inevitable challenges that beset us. A marvelous tools to have handy when our better knowing is overwhelmed by those often mysterious interior storms, this book communicates a desperately needed feeling that we can indeed succeed in shaping lives of meaning. (Don Hanlon Johnson, PhD author, Everyday Hopes, Utopian Dreams: Reflections on American Ideals)

Self-help books are ten a penny but Emotional Chaos to Clairty by Phillip Moffitt is the exception to the rule. It explains how emotional chaos comes from a reactive mind (which causes anxiety, anger, worry and insecurity) and gives practical advice on how to achieve a clear mind. ( Woman's Way)
