Please join a conversation with Catherine Gildiner to discuss the beautiful habit of compassion. Catherine has written the best-selling childhood memoir titled Too Close to the Falls. It was on the Toronto Globe and Mail’s best sellers’ list for an amazing 157 weeks and the New York Times list as well. A decade later, she published a sequel, a teenage memoir of life in the 60’s called After the Falls. Then she wrote her third and final memoir called Coming Ashore, which covers her life as a student at Oxford in England, teaching in the burning ghetto in Cleveland, and finally her graduate school years in Toronto. She has also written Seduction, a novel about Darwin and Freud, which has been an international bestseller and was listed by Der Spiegel in Germany as one of the year’s ten best mysteries. Her latest book titled Good Morning, Monster: Five Heroic Journey’s to Recovery (Penguin Fall 2019) is about patients she has had in her psychology practice who, despite their desolate childhoods, have overcome their traumas and managed to thrive. The book looks at their resilience and what traits they used to persevere. The book was on the Canadian best sellers’ list and was chosen in the U.S as one of the three top Amazon Choices for the fall. It was positively reviewed in Psychology Today and Entertainment Weekly. it has already been translated into eleven languages. It was featured on Good Morning America and on the top ten books taken out of U.S Libraries for the year 2021.
Habits for Happiness
Friday at 8 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
I strongly believe that the path to Happiness is paved with Healthy Habits, and that we are always “In Choice” and have agency over our wellbeing and happiness. This idea is contrary to what most of us are taught. Most of us grow up believeing that the shiny object is out there in the external world and thus, we spend our whole lives reaching for it. The irony is that all along what we are searching for is right there inside of us. In short, we are homesick for ourselves.
How do we access that place inside? Through Habit Change. I want to offer you free, easy, and simple steps to take control of your life, mood and well-being during this immense time of transition. Habits for Happiness is broadcast live every Friday at 8 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
“As a trained master Life and Habit Coach, I am one of the only people in my field who touts daily habits as the best path to happiness. I often resonate with people who are logical thinkers, and even skeptical about the idea of happiness. My intention is to let listeners know that our ability to find happiness is inside of us and only we have agency to expand it.”
