I was ridden by deep depression and anxiety all my life. After applying the Just One Look method in 2011, the symptoms started to leave. No endless ruminations anymore. Hopelessness and anxiety are pretty much gone. I'm still lacking in drive and energy, but more interested in things to enjoy and in practical matters rather than worrying about it. I just used the core method, the Looking, though. The Self-Directed Attention Exercise had proved too hard for me yet. Both techniques are described in the book in great detail, clearly referring to a lot of real-world experience working with people. There's no beating around the bush. You get to know what to do right off the bat. Every line brims with dedication, spirit of research and enthusiasm about this work. It touched my heart.
5つ星のうち5.0The DIY Guide to Freedom from the Fear of Life
Jazzrascal's review says it all. IMHO this is THE guide to ending a lifetime of suffering and searching. Buy it, read it, DO WHAT IT SAYS. Jazzrascal has, I have, others have and it works. All I might add is to urge you to not just read it but do it. And, Amazon Australia, please make it available in Oz in paperback, too.
5つ星のうち4.0Great little instruction booklet on being human.
I enjoyed reading this very practical and pleasantly short guide on a practice that has the potential to transform anyone’s life. JS’s take on self-enquiry is unique and legit. His use of a meditation technique to aid focus and daily attention is also useful.
