Description
For over 35 years, Tom Spector has been sharing his special gift for helping people resolve issues of stress, worry, anxiety, fear, guilt, and chronic pain, and restore self-esteem and inner peace. Our Two Gardens: How to Cultivate Healing evolved from Tom’s teachings. The techniques in this book really work! Their descriptions are clear and easy to follow. Tom combines profound meaning with light humor. His anecdotes are powerful and offer great imagery. Our Two Gardens: How to Cultivate Healing has three parts. Part 1: How To Cultivate Healing describes how our unhealthy reactions to normal everyday events and situations create suffering and misery. You then learn techniques to avoid these reactions and to cultivate healthy responses that prevent the suffering and promote healing. You’ll also learn why and how you may avoid healing and how to take charge of your life and stay on the healing path. Part 2: Inner Peace: A Practical Approach offers techniques to live your life to the fullest in the present moment and to avoid the value judgments that prevent us from enjoying the benefits of this experience. You also see how readily we treat our bodies, our troubling situations, and difficult people as our enemies, and how harboring these enemies internally causes us to suffer. Every time we convert an internal enemy into a personal friend, we take one step closer to inner peace. Part 3: Visiting Seriously Ill People explores effective ways of visiting seriously ill people that synergistically benefit you and the patient. As you read this book, you will go on a mini-journey. You start by cultivating healing, travel to obtaining inner peace, and then continue with sharing what you learned with seriously ill people. You probably aren’t too surprised to learn that your sharing creates more healing and more inner peace. This endless cycle of healing-sharing-healing defines our journey and purpose. It will only lead to good.
About the author
Tom Spector began meditating while in graduate school at Yale University in 1968. He realized he had low self-esteem, lots of anger, and was flunking out of the intense program. Meditation helped him immensely. He began to work out his deep-seated personal growth issues and rapidly became a star student, completing the full Ph.D. program in record time. He continued to meditate, even when he was an International Vice President for Cancer Research for a large pharmaceutical company. In 1976, Tom began teaching meditation to seriously ill people and soon expanded his teaching to relatively healthy people in many different organizations and to private clients. Tom has a special gift for helping people work through troubling issues and feel good about themself. Our Two Gardens: How to Cultivate Healing evolved from his 35 years of teaching. Tom lives in North Carolina with his wife, Joanna. To purchase Tom’s Meditation and Healing CD or to learn more about meditation and yoga, visit www.hathahouse.com.
