It's natural to be somewhat resistant to change in our personal, spiritual, and professional lives. But once we learn to identify and overcome our individual resistances to change, we open the door to personal growth and inner freedom. In this step-by-step guide, Dr. Robert Wicks offers sixteen "seeds of change"—simple yet powerful approaches to encourage readers toward modest, gradual changes in personal attitudes and perspectives. Additional features include answers to common questions on the nature of change and on how to be more open, a special chapter on "How to Defeat Yourself Effectively and Make Yourself Miserable No Matter How Good your Life Is," a bibliography, and a 30-day retreat for use at home. Simple Changes is a masterful blend of sound psychological principles and time-honored spiritual wisdom.
