Provides support and inspiration for us in our efforts as members of the helping professions. We learn to find strength, clarity, and wisdom for those times when we are called on to care for one another.

I read this book many years ago when I was a crisis intervention counselor and was feeling very overwhelmed by the seemingly endless persons whose lives were in crisis! I believe that I have read everything Ram Dass has written and everything is so right on, so inspirational. This is a must read for everyone but particularly for those in the helping profession. We all want to help, its our nature ... but how? What is truly helpful and what isn't ... such a personal question ... personal to each individual and to each situation.
Please take the time to read this ... it will enrich your life in ways you cannot imagine!
I have read it several times since and I have given countless copies to friends and clients. And I am about to read it again! Thank you for this opportunity. And thank you, Ram Dass for Being!
