"Empathy is our common language, giving voice to the heart's most profound yearnings, eloquently articulating the soul's most anguished questions.Through its thoughtful actions and interactions, empathy creates the invisible connections that hold us together, one human to another, neighborhood to village, community to country, nation to planet."

Transforming Anxiety into Joy: A Practical Workbook to Gain Emotional Freedom

Our anxiety increases or decreases depending on our typical way of perceiving. Our characteristic way of perceiving determines how much tension and anxiety we live with moment to moment. We are hardwired early in life to see the world in certain ways; most of us have learned biased ways of interpreting what we see and what we experience. We need to change our conditioning so that we are oriented to perceiving the truth. When we become better at deciphering the facts before us we are less likely to allow our minds to run wild and accentuate circumstances. This workbook will help you discover the formula to retrain your mind and begin the process of disciplining yourself to react to the truth before you, thus lessening the conditioned anxiety response

The Goodness Renaissance Project

The Goodness Renaissance Project was founded by Arthur P. Ciaramicoli. The Project is an international effort to help individuals experience a re-birth of the goodness we were all born with and to realize the spiritual, health and societal benefits of doing good for others. Goodness withers due to life circumstances and the project is designed to help people experience goodness breakthroughs through practical steps that will enhance each person’s quality of life. We are additionally conducting a national survey on goodness and will reveal the results in the near future.

Changing Your Inner Voice: A Journey through Depression to Truth and Love

Your self voice is a critical factor in beating depression. In my 30-plus years of clinical practice I have learned that the way we talk to ourselves, whether we have an understanding or punitive internal voice, determines our mood. I will share several diverse stories of my clients who have suffered from depression and now live depression free. If you do the work I recommend in each chapter, you will likely begin the very important process of seeing yourself in a more positive light. Globally, 350 million people suffer from depression and 1 in 10 Americans say they suffer from depression as well. Fifty years ago, the average age of a depressive episode was close to 30 years of age; today it is 14.5 years of age. Depression is a global problem affecting virtually every nation. As you read through these chapters, I hope you will be able to slowly begin to change the way you talk to yourself. Together, we will take part in a journey to defeat depression by making a commitment to change the course of your life.
