Dr. Brenner 150

Ph.D. psychologist Gail Brenner, author of The End of Self Help: Discovering Peace and Happiness Right at the Heart of Your Messy, Scary Brilliant Life, says that’s because these and other self-help techniques aren’t nearly as effective as their popularity suggests. The real key to peace and happiness, Gail explains, lies in understanding that you are innately whole and don’t need to “fix” yourself or your life and by intentionally shifting your attention away from the stories and dramas and focusing instead on your awareness of any given moment as it unfolds. Ultimately, the drama and struggles you perceive will lose their grip on you. You’ll be able to stop trying to find peace and happiness and live it instead. We’re going to talk about how we go about doing this. Visit her site HERE
