What do you do when it all gets too much? When you need a break? Acclaimed author, yogini, and meditation coach Michaela Haas, PhD, offers tried-and-true methods for finding strength and purpose in challenging situations. Michaela will inspire you by showing how we can find the power of loving kindness and purpose within ourselves. Resilience is like a muscle we can exercise to grow stronger. We discover how the ingredients of a resilient mind―acceptance, openness, flexibility, compassion, resourcefulness, determination, courage, and forgiveness―help us in transforming any challenge into a catalyst for building a more purposeful life. As a journalist with a doctorate in Buddhist philosophy Michaela offers a unique approach which draws upon powerful storytelling, psychology, eastern philosophy and twenty years of mindfulness practice to reshape the way we think of challenges. You’ll walk away with a deep understanding of the strength of your spirit and five powerful practices to transform your own life.
