Help

Nothing Abides

If you are acutely dissatisfied with the quality of your life, I recommend getting some professional help.  There are plenty of effective psychiatrists and clinical psychologists available.  Your initial task is just to find someone well-qualified to work with you with whom you find it easy to establish rapport.

If you are normally dissatisfied with the quality of your life, I recommend reading all the free material that is available on this site.  Why not serve as your own consulting philosopher?  Use the self-examination questionnaire to help identify areas where you need to improve.

For more on these ideas, I recommend watching the 4 minute video on the homepage.

If your primary concern is emotional, I encourage you to consider my short book Emotional Facelift.  (It’s available here as an e-book for under $5.  It’s also available here as a paperback for under $7.)  It clearly explains the structure of emotions and which concrete practices work and don’t work for dissolving unwanted emotions such as fear, anger, and loneliness.

Here’s a video that you may find helpful:

If your primary concern is other than emotional, the problem is likely to be that your life is unbalanced (off-center).  The simple, but not easy, cure for an unbalanced life is to re-balance it.  If that interests you, the easiest and clearest book of mine about re-balancing is available here as an e-book for under $5.  It’s also available here as a paperback for under $10.)

You may have a short, one-on-one telephone consultation with me without cost or obligation.  If that interests you, just click here for more information.

Tom R., Albany, NY:  “Dennis’s insights and guidance have helped me transcend what could be a very painful, distressing, and challenging time of my life into a period of healing, growth, and tranquility.”

Especially if you are a North American, what you may need the most help with is “spiritual well-being.”  For a short introduction to that topic, I recommend my The Three Things the Rest of Us Should Know about Zen Training.  It’s available here for just $2.99 as an e-book.  I also recommend without reservation the books and audio/CD trainings of Eckhart Tolle, who I judge to be the best spiritual teacher of our age.
