08 Aug Just One Thing: Cherish Others
Roshi Joan Halifax shares how to cherish others, which is the “Just One Thing” she does every day for her own well-being.
Roshi Joan Halifax is a Buddhist teacher, Zen priest, and doctor of medical anthropology. She is Founder, Abbot, and Head Teacher of Upaya Institute and Zen Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
She’s also the author of several classic books, including among others The Human Encounter with Death with famed psychiatrist Dr. Stanislav Grof, The Fruitful Darkness: A Journey Through Buddhist Practice and Tribal Wisdom (which has spent a lot of time on my nightstand recently), and Being with Dying: Cultivating Compassion and Fearlessness in the Presence of Death,
Dr. Rick Hanson offers 57 brief practices that strengthen the neural networks of deep well-being and resilience.
This program gives you just one thing to focus on each day to gradually change your brain for the better so you can handle the stresses and challenges of everyday life with greater ease, inner strength, and confidence.
Each practice is grounded in modern neuroscience and ancient wisdom, and Rick’s background in the very real world of business and raising a family.
Practices include a 1-2 minute video explaining the importance of the practice and how to do it, a recap, reflection, and suggestion for integrating it into your daily life, weekly emails with inspiration, support, and encouragement, an audio download, transcription, and printable handout.
They’re quick and easy to do, and each repetition strengthens key neural circuits – just like building a muscle in the gym. It’s the law of little things: a small thing repeated each day adds up to big results. Just one thing… that could change your life.
