Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Emotional Chaos to Clarity is a masterwork. Be inspired by the possibilities it opens.” —Jack Kornfield, Ph.D., author of The Wise Heart

Despite our best-laid plans, life is difficult, and we sometimes experience anger, anxiety, frustration, and doubt. This emotional chaos can negatively affect the way we live our lives. Yet, Phillip Moffitt shows us that by cultivating a responsive mind rather than a reactive one, we can achieve a state of emotional clarity that allows us to act with a calm mind and a loving heart.

Drawing on both Western psychology and Buddhist philosophy, Moffitts step-by-step exercises help us to:

  • Know and act from our core values at all times
  • Gain wisdom from both pleasant and unpleasant experiences
  • Free ourselves from the past
  • Achieve a peaceful inner life, even if our outer life is filled with challenges

Synopsis:

This inspiring and prescriptive book leads us from the emotional chaos of the reactive mind to the clarity of the responsive mind

As Founder of the Life Balance Institute, Phillip Moffitt has observed that most people lack clarity about their life's direction and the ability to cope with its inevitable challenges. Now, in Emotional Chaos to Clarity, he provides the antidote by showing us the path of skillful living. Grounded in Western psychology and Buddhist philosophy, each chapter introduces a mind state that prevents us from living skillfully, narrates stories from Moffitt's hundreds of students and clients, and provides step-by-step exercises for readers to find clarity in their own lives. Among the many benefits of skillful living are being able to gain wisdom from both pleasant and unpleasant experiences and having an inner life which can flourish, even if our outer life is filled with difficulty.
