Most of us at one time or another would like to help a friend family member or acquaintance through a challenging time. But do we really know how to give meaningful support and guidance? And why do our best efforts at helping others often come up short? Here is a practical guide that will be of special interest to helping professionals—and anyone who wants to make a positive difference in the lives of people they care about. To be truly helpful to others Karen Wegela explains we must begin by focusing on ourselves. We must develop greater awareness steadiness of mind fearlessness and self-compassion. Only then we can extend these qualities to the people we’d like to help. Drawing on her experiences as a psychotherapist and on her longtime study of Buddhist meditation Wegela emphasizes the benefits of mindfulness or learning to become fully present in our moment-to-moment experience. Through mindfulness we develop a fearless compassionate presence in our daily lives—and we become better listeners take wiser actions and give more valuable effective guidance to the people we’d like to help.
