Just One Thing
Developing A Buddha Brain One Simple Practice at a Time
"Fred Stella's appealing baritone voice and natural pacing make this lesson as pleasing to the ear as it is to the growth-oriented mind. Stella's businesslike assertiveness will serve as a call to action for listeners whose determination needs prodding, but it doesn't fight with the book's quiet, centering message. With thoughtful and accessible language, the author says we can rewire our brains by focusing each week for a year on a different one of 52 distinct practices such as developing curiosity, relaxing anxiety about perfection, taking in the good, and engaging with aspects of life we can change. Some practices will be familiar, others less so, but all are arresting in their own way. This outstanding collection of practices addresses the major existential, emotional, and mental health challenges of our time. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
