“Neal Allen offers simple and deep ways to find your inner wisdom and refresh your spirit. These teachings and practices bring you back to your inner gifts and best self." —Jack Kornfield
“Anne Lamott is a cause for celebration. Her real genius lies in capturing the ineffable, describing not perfect moments, but imperfect ones…perfectly. She is nothing short of miraculous.” —The New Yorker
In his new book, Better Days: Tame Your Inner Critic, Neal Allen asks us the revolutionary question "What if our inner critic is wrong?" Through simple and engaging exercises and explorations, Better Days offers a process for meeting, confronting, and ultimately quieting the inner critic. It’s a book that can change your life.
