Condition: Very Good.
Practical Approaches to Giving Support, Service and Encouragement to Others. From the cover: “The author combines the insights of traditional meditative practices and modern psychology to address the problems involved with our good intentions to help others, concluding that the most important thing we can offer to anyone in distress is our mindful presence, without agendas or expectations. When we learn to cultivate this ability to be open-heartedly, compassionately present, we find that we can apply a variety of skills and techniques, including listening, being a mindful companion, and forming supportive teams for individuals and families. We may also find that our actions benefit us as much as they do the people we seek to help.”
