It’s one of the greatest concerns for current and future generations. When you harness the power of attention, life changes in surprising ways: relationships deepen, experiences become more meaningful and things unfold with greater harmony. Your attention is fragile and, by taking care of it in a few simple ways, it will reward you with the vibrancy of a full life. If you want to be more present, live more fully and experience the magic of life … take one moment, please.

Everyday Narcissism

Yours, Mine, and Ours

Everyday Narcissism

Narcissism, in all forms, is a belief that the world revolves around us, and that what happens in the world happens because of us. Most of us live with a form of narcissism so deeply embedded that we don't even know we have it. This "everyday narcissism" (EN) comes from a combination of childhood wounds and powerful myths we were taught as children. Everyday Narcissism helps readers understand how EN manifests in their own lives, and teaches them how to heal it. This awareness provides a foundation for creating greater happiness, more fulfilling relationships, less reactivity, and more meaning. An essential purchase for anyone having difficulty in a relationship, with a partner, coworker, family member, or other loved one. This is the first book for the general reader to specifically address everyday narcissism (EN). Features a Foreword by Anne Katherine, best-selling author of Boundaries and Where to Draw the Line.
