Riding the Dragon: 10 Lessons for Inner Strength in Challenging Timesby Robert J Wicks
Synopses & Reviews
Psychologist and best-selling author Robert Wicks draws upon Eastern and Western traditions to help people deal with life's difficulties--the dragons that escaped from the cave. He encourages people to engage their problems and grow through them, to ride those dragons rather than slay them or drive them back into the cave. Wicks is a specialist in the field of secondary stress and counsels people who help others--psychologists, doctors, nurses, ministers, including relief workers in Rwanda and Cambodia. He's shown a generation the links between psychology and spirituality, working from the perspective that difficult times can offer striking moments of grace. 10 Lessons Prune carefully and often Recognize your renewal zones Catch the slide Seek hidden possibilities Engage the darkness Pair clarity and kindness Find love in small deeds Seek perspective daily Build a barrier of simplicity Come home more often Psychologist Robert Wicks masterfully integrates psychology and spirituality, and is well known for his numerous books and videotapes on spirituality and personal growth.
