Another huge jump-off for me in my pursuit of a happier, healthier lifestyle, was reading the book Uncovering Happens by Elisha Goldstein.
Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D. is co-founder of The Center for Mindful Living in West Los Angeles and creator of the 6-month coaching program A Course in Mindful Living. He is a psychologist, author and speaker who synthesizes the pearls of traditional psychotherapy with a progressive integration of mindfulness to achieve mental and emotional healing. Dr. Goldstein contends that we have the power to transform our traumas and habitual patterns that keep us stuck in perpetual cycles of stress, anxiety, depression, or addiction and step into greater freedom and peace. He offers practical strategies to calm our anxious minds, transform negative emotions, and facilitate greater self acceptance, freedom and inner peace.
Dr. Goldstein has published extensively and is author of numerous articles, chapters, and blogs, including the bestselling books (translated in 12 languages) Uncovering Happiness: Overcoming Depression with Mindfulness and Self-Compassion, The Now Effect: How This Moment Can Change the Rest of Your Life, Mindfulness Meditations for the Anxious Traveler and co-author of A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook, foreword by Jon Kabat-Zinn and MBSR Every Day: Daily Practices from the Heart of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. He is also creator of the Mindfulness and Psychotherapy column at Psychcentral.com and a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post. His professional research on Sacred Moments: Implications on Stress and Well-Being is published in The Journal of Clinical Psychology.
This book was such a great introduction to help me feel empowered to change with the tools to do so at my finger tips.
