psychotherapist and author of The Power of Kindness offers a concrete program for developing the will—a faculty we greatly
need to face life’s hurdles and to embark on our most meaningful projects.
All of us experience periods of gloom, fear, and
uncertainty. But we each possess deep reserves of inner strength and wisdom for
dealing with such setbacks. Indeed, it is the very arrival of darkened
circumstances that can summon our untapped energies.
In Your Inner Will,
therapist and philosopher Piero Ferrucci explores how to play on the iron
chords of our interior selves. In this stirring and deeply practical work,
Ferrucci provides a full program for the cultivation of the will by employing
insights from classical mythology and wisdom teachings, neuroscience research,
case studies, and psychological exercises.
Each chapter focuses on a specific aspect of will and is
followed by exercises that guide the reader in its development. Chapters
include: Mastery, Autonomy, Freedom, Courage, Integrity, and Resilience.
Ferrucci describes the pitfalls we face when our inner strength is lacking, and
shows us what we can expect when it is healthfully developed. An effective will
can guide us in our search for inner freedom; it helps us to take risks and to
renew ourselves; it makes us feel strong and confident.
Your Inner Will is
an immensely practical study that helps readers navigate crises and pursue more
purposeful lives. Download and start listening now!
