Hi There!

I'm sharing this because it's too good not to.  I absolutely love Rick Hanson - he's one of my favorites!  He blends mindfulness, neuroscience and practicality so seamlessly.  So, I'm super excited to announce that he's coming out with a new book!  To preorder your copy of Resilient: How To Grow An Unshakable Core of Calm, Strength, and Happiness click here.  (By the way, I'm not affiliated with him - this is just a genuine wanting to share a great resource.)

Enjoy!
