Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book presents an ancient system for understanding human dynamics that can help us navigate our complex, twenty-first-century lives. Traditionally called the five wisdoms, this system describes five forms of intelligence that are inherent in all of us and that we can draw upon at any time. These are: presence, clarity, richness, passion, and action. Author Irini Rockwell explains these fundamental forms of intelligence and how we can put them to use to enhance our relationships, our work, and our creativity.

Each of us has a primary form of intelligence, which we must identify and understand, but we can also learn to cultivate the other wisdoms and use them to suit our changing circumstances. Rockwell integrates useful stories and case studies to illustrate how to put the five wisdoms teachings to use in personal and professional life. Building on her first book, The Five Wisdom Energies, Rockwell offers further guidance on using the five wisdoms teachings to gain insight and boost effectiveness, with specific chapters dedicated to those working in the fields of counseling, education, and the arts.

Synopsis:

Understanding yourself is the key to dealing with—and even enjoying—the inevitable complexity of life. Irini Rockwell presents us with a powerful system for the kind of self-understanding that leads to just that kind of satisfying relationship with life. It’s a Buddhist model for identifying your unique mix of personality traits that make up your innate intelligence. All five qualities—presence, clarity, richness, passion, and action—are your rich resource. By cultivating them you begin to see how you can use this remarkable system to enhance your relationships, your work, and your creativity. Ultimately, this system introduces us to a larger world: the totality and interconnectedness of everyone and everything.
