Discovering Your Natural Capacity for Love, Integrity, and Compassion

About the Author

DAVID RICHO, Ph.D., is a psychotherapist, teacher, and writer who draws on Jungian, Buddhist, and poetic perspectives in his work. He leads popular workshops at the Esalen Institute, the University of California at Berkeley, the University of California at Santa Barbara, and Santa Barbara City College. He is the author of HOW TO BE AN ADULT, HOW TO BE AN ADULT IN RELATIONSHIPS, and SHADOW DANCE- LIBERATING THE POWER AND CREATIVITY OF YOUR DARK SIDE. He lives in Santa Barbara and San Francisco, California.


Richo is the psychotherapist and teacher whose popular and impressive How to Be an Adult in Relationships melded Jungian and Buddhist thought in a way that was both poetic and linear. This book is lighter than his earlier works and a quick read. Proposing 52 commitments, or intentions, he follows each one with a pithy essay or meditation. Richo's intellectual grasp is profound, making each commitment an intriguing spiritual yardstick for examining how far we have come or how far we might still go in terms of honesty, kindness and taking responsibility for our actions and relationships. One of the commitments, for example, is "I am choosing to be more authentic in my relationships." Fleshing this out, Richo encourages the reader to admit one's error "the minute we notice ourselves acting in ways that do not present ourselves honestly." Other parts of the book deal with seeing ourselves clearly, not hurting others and showing kindness when others rebuff us. People who have not been exposed to Richo's earlier books should enjoy this one, and fans of his work will welcome the return of his unique voice. (Dec. 18) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

In an effort to help individuals bring proper spiritual etiquette into a world full of greed, hate, and delusion, psychotherapist and author Richo (How To Be an Adult in Relationships: The Five Keys to Mindful Loving) offers 52 ways to express kindness and compassion in everyday life. Daily readings open with a single commitment followed by a short commentary containing a practical exercise. For example, the commitment to avoid gossip includes an explanation of why the practice is tempting as well as an exercise for speaking directly to people whose behavior has been unwelcome. The page-long chapters are easy to digest and will undoubtedly assist in achieving positive change. Recommended for most libraries. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
