Just One Thing with Rick Hanson
October 18, 2012
Hosted by Dr. Susan Allison
Does life seem super full and incredibly busy right now? In the midst of this pace, do you ever wish you had time for renewal and something to uplift you? Look no further! Rick Hanson is here to tell you about his new book: Just One Thing, Developing a Buddha Brain One Simple Practice at a Time. This book delivers just what it says it will: short, simple, practical yet deep practices to do each day. Some of my favorites have to do with being good to ourselves, enjoying life and being at peace. There are other sections about building strengths and engaging with the world for anyone who needs these skills. For me personally, the pages about self-love, compassion, relaxing and forgiveness really help, as do the ones about pleasure, being happy, seeing beauty, feeling grateful and feeling safer, loved and loving. Rick’s book is easy to read and understand; it is experiential and allows the reader to do exercises to really practice the methods that bring more happiness and peace.
