The power of being: for people who do too much!
It has been said that conflict brings with it corresponding opportunities for growth & change. Today we are presented with a variety of conflicts, as individuals, in our families, & as a society. Many of these conflicts arise from our tendency to do too much rather than too little. For other generations life's problems could often be resolved with more - more work, more production, more technology, more effort. Today our most significant challenges call paradoxically for less - less stress, less environmental pollution, less resource & energy use, less geographic space. New technologies for moving from overproduction to healthy, balanced spontaneity are needed. In THE POWER OF BEING psychologist Christian R. Komor, Psy.D. describes the nature & process of compulsive doing & explains why it has become such a powerful force in our society. He then takes the reader on a personalized journey towards a re-awakening of the inner spontaneity, aliveness, & the ability to "be" that is inside of all of us.
