Essential reading on the way to mindfulness!!
Reviewed in the United States on July 11, 2016
Excellent ideas presented. In examining one's existence one should read first Socrates, then Kierkegaard and then Fromm... This is a collection of essays/lectures concerning the way one makes decisions to compromise on the values held dear, the language we use to describe them and how a therapist relates to the patient. The art of listening is an essential part of modern mindfulness. Listening to one's self as we relate to both the internal and the external... How we adjust ourselves to become happy or clear think and thoughtful. We must first be ready to relate as a whole individual and second to actually relate. Fromm jumps back and forth as though in a debate with Frued and Jung, but his ideas are clear and concise, easy to understand and easy to implement... Brilliant!!!
