Enough! a Buddhist approach to finding release from addictive patterns
Enough! is a hands-on guide to help put an end to the patterns that sabotage the potential for a true and satisfying happiness. All of us are caught up in addictions big or small. Enough! presents a practical path that releases us from the grip of negative habits and addictions that block a full and meaningful life.We can learn how to undo our habits and addictions, but to do this we have to first find their triggers. With the right techniques we can disarm them and learn more effective ways for dealing with the pain that so often underlies our problem-causing behaviors. Without the support of effective methods we are likely to return to our addictions when pain and painful issues arise. Chonyi Taylor helps us break through that cycle, reconnect with ourselves and others, and feel more centered in our spiritual awareness.Presenting the essence of Buddhism without the jargon, and fusing it with Western psychology, Chonyi Taylor engagingly combines practical exercises that were developed through her workshops with meditations and stories, and presents invaluable insights about how the mind works.Enough! is intended for anyone who is looking for a powerful and effective way out of addiction, regardless of religious or secular background, and is suitable for self-study or as part of a guided program.
"An eminently practical book that guides readers through stages of self-awareness and change, meditation by meditation.... Taylor's focused, purposeful, and hands-on guide to recovery through Buddhist meditational practice benefits from her years as a therapist as well as her Buddhist sense of compassion; many readers in recovery, whether specifically Buddhist or not, will be grateful for her work."--Graham Christian, Library Journal; July 2010
