Publisher Comments:

"The road in life forks in every moment, with one path leading toward confusion, separateness, and entanglement, and the other toward clarity, connection, and mental freedom. With mind whispering, the choice can be ours."

Why sometimes do even the smallest events send us into a downward spiral? Whether we're aware of it or not, our feelings and outlook are constantly shaped by learned patterns, or habitual modes of being. These have the power to dictate our sense of wellbeing and our very perceptions of our lives and the world around us. These modes — distinct orchestrations of how we think and feel, how we act and interact — can open us up to delight and wisdom or preoccupy us with fear and despair, driving and distorting our experiences like invisible puppeteers of the mind.

In this engaging and insightful work, New York Times bestselling author Tara Bennett-Goleman offers us new ways to cut the strings of our self-defeating habits and find emotional freedom.

By bringing together the latest in cognitive psychology, the neuroscience of habit change, Eastern philosophy, and her experience with horse whispering, Bennett-Goleman helps liberate us from our most challenging mental roadblocks so we can identify emotional triggers and dysfunctional habits in ourselves and our relationships and begin to build new positive patterns in our lives and our world.

A groundbreaking map of the emotional mind, Mind Whispering helps transform our emotions, improve our relationships, connect us with a wise and compassionate heart, and finally live with a more lasting sense of happiness.

Review:

“In weaving together so many different strands of wisdom and compassionate response, Mind Whispering creates a striking and inspiring tapestry of engaged understanding. Tara Bennett-Goleman draws on an amazingly rich and varied life and in so doing illuminates our path of love and freedom.” Joseph Goldstein, author of A Heart Full of Peace, and One Dharma

Review:

“Bennett-Goleman has written a book of exquisite sensitivity and wisdom, in which she invites us to cultivate a healing relationship to the deepest aspects of ourselves and the world, through 'mind whispering.' Brilliantly synthesising the ancient wisdom of Asia, with modern psychology, she offers a lasting source of nourishment.” Mark Williams, Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Oxford, and author of Mindfulness

Review:

“Tara Bennett-Goleman's Mind Whispering furthers the dialogue of psychology east and west. She is truly a pioneer in the integration of Cognitive Therapy and mindfulness. This book is not only useful for clinicians, but for people in their everyday lives.” Dr. Aaron Beck, Founder of Cognitive Therapy

Synopsis:

With her book Mind Whispering, Tara Bennett-Goleman, the New York Times bestselling author of Emotional Alchemy, draws on the the fields of cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and Eastern traditions to present a workable means to overcome the negative patterns in our lives.

Mind Whispering is a new map of the emotional mind. This groundbreaking approach shows us that we have a choice of our moods, emotions, actions, and reactions. Mind Whispering teaches how to manage our brains, and incorporate the timeless wisdom of mindfulness into everyday situations.

Ultimately, Mind Whispering exposes the modes of being that act as obstacles in our lives and relationships, and shows us how we can choose to improve our relationships and free ourselves, living with a lasting sense of happiness. With a foreword by the Dalai Lama, Bennett-Goleman's Mind Whispering: A New Map to Freedom from Self-Defeating Emotional Habits gives you the keys to lasting emotional freedom.

The Horse Whisperer is my favorite movie so the title of the book immediately attracted my attention. The author's combining such multi-layered experiences as horse whispering, mindfulness, neuroscience and practice as a cognitive psychotherapist is such an eclectic and delightful mix. I appreciate also how she illustrates concepts with stories and nature images. The book is so practical it immediately gave me new insight into how to approach a recent conflict in a relationship. I would love to see this author do a TV series!
