In two minutes each morning, during a workout or commute, uncover your innate capacity for joy and inner peace through self-compassion. Though your heart's wise voice can be buried beneath worry, doubt, and fear, your heart is born with 10 secret powers that awaken unlimited joy and freedom inside, no matter what is going on around you. By spending two minutes each morning cultivating trust, curiosity, awareness, self-compassion, kindness, self-love, inner peace, and others, you change your relationship with your body, your heart, and your loved ones by access the secret strengths these powers bring.
In an encouraging, uplifting voice, therapist/author/workshop leader Carolyn Hobbs draws from 35 years of counseling experience and her mindfulness practice to present the liberating truth: Each of us is born with the power to release ourselves from fear, past traumas, bad habits, mistrust, and defensiveness. All we have to do is spend two minutes each morning listening to our wise hearts. Each chapter in this smart, pragmatic book contains real-life examples of people finding peace and joy amid divorce, depression, parenting, grief, loss, fear, cancer, and the gamut of human struggles. Hobbs concludes each chapter with four clear tools we can use to deepen self-awareness and self-compassion amid back pain, headaches, ulcers, and the challenges of daily life. Busy people of all faiths can use these tools to find freedom and inner peace - to tame anxiety, anger, grief, and despair while awakening fearless love.
