Welcome to Your Best Mind Ever! In this unique program, I’ll share with you twenty lessons that will help you live a less fretful, less claustrophobic, all-together improved life.
These lessons help you accomplish what the Buddha explained was your central task in life: getting a grip on your mind. Each of these twenty lessons has the power to heal, upgrade and improve your mind. I hope you find them really useful—and enjoyable!
You are your mind. Descartes famously announced, “I think, therefore I am.” Even that apt observation doesn’t capture the extent to which you are your mind. Our mind ought to be the subject that interests us the most. Yet no child receives instruction in mind care. Nor do adults. There is ever so much more focus on brain chemistry than on mind care!
Learning about the brain, however, doesn’t shed much light on the workings of the mind. No brain scan will ever help you understand why you are sad or anxious. No cognitive scientist has language that speaks to you in ways that explain you to you. For that we need mind artists. This program provides some of that artistry!
The way we dwell inside, pestering ourselves, writing poetry, producing nightmares, holding grudges, creating and abandoning intentions, conjuring nasty tricks and amazing benedictions, is too fantastic for anything like mechanistic explanations. As if science has any idea where symphonies and hallucinations come from! But that fantastic place is comprehensible by metaphor. The twenty I’m providing will help you immensely.
You can have a new, improved mind. These lessons will help you get better acquainted with that place where you reside all the time, your mind, and transform your mind into a roomier, airier, and altogether more congenial place to live. This is vital work—and really enjoyable! I think you’ll smile and benefit tremendously.
I’ve worked as a family therapist and a creativity and life coach for more than thirty years. I’ve led workshops all over the world, been interviewed hundreds of times, and provided keynote addresses at numerous conferences. I write the Rethinking Mental Health blog for Psychology Today and my more than fifty books include The Future of Mental Health, Rethinking Depression, Humane Helping, Mastering Creative Anxiety and The Van Gogh Blues. Your Best Mind Ever is the product of a lifetime of thinking about what significantly helps a person meet all of life’s challenges. I know it will really help you … and I think you’ll genuinely enjoy it too!
Please start enjoying now!
