by Michael Wizer

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Maybe you have asked yourself, "What is the purpose of my life?" Michael Wizer—mindfulness instructor, clinical psychologist, and practical philosopher—offers this answer: the purpose of your life is to have a good life. That simple idea is the center around which this deeply philosophical, yet surprisingly practical book revolves. Mindfulness has an essential role in the creation of one's good life: in the management of stress, anxiety, and worry; in working through painful feelings and difficult thoughts; in living gracefully; in cultivating wisdom; and in one's spiritual life. The whole of that endeavor, to create a good life, is considered the art of living. This book is clear, informative, and practical. It begins with the basics of mindfulness and mindfulness practice. But ultimately, this book shows the reader how the simple practice of mindfulness is both multi-tool and fulcrum when it comes to the art of living.

About the author
Michael Wizer is a clinical psychologist with a practice in Cincinnati, Ohio. He started meditating as a teenager, learning from many respected teachers from the United States, Burma, Thailand, Korea, and Japan. He had the good fortune to travel and study for a year with the renowned scholar of comparative religion, Huston Smith. His doctoral dissertation was about the Stress Reduction Clinic of Jon Kabat-Zinn, the leader in bringing mindfulness into healthcare. Before becoming a psychologist, Wizer taught meditation and has continued to do so throughout his professional life. As a painter, woodworker, and dancer, much of Wizer's life has been dedicated to the arts. He approaches psychology with a philosophical bent and calls his field of interest and research "The Art of Living." You can reach him through his website at michaelwizerpsychologist.com
