Western psychotherapy, with its emphasis on analyzing our backgrounds and feelings, has left millions anxious and confused. Constructive Living is the antidote. Brilliantly simple and effective, Constructive Living is an action-based way of looking at the world that combines good, old-fashioned straight talk and two celebrated Japanese psychotherapies: Morita and Naikan. The work of Dr. Shoma Morita emphasizes action - meeting every challenge to reach your goal. It shows us how to live thoughtfully and economically, to regard our actions as if they were divine rituals, and to perform them with the utmost care. Naikan therapy stresses focusing attention outward, avoiding self-absorption, and, especially, reflecting on our relationships to all those who give us life and make it easier. Here, in plain language, David Reynolds, the father of Constructive Living, has at last written the definitive guide for taking control of your life and imbuing it with greater meaning and productivity. He contends that contentment is achieved, not bestowed - attaining peace and satisfaction takes daily practice and learning. In this revolutionary book, David Reynolds is your teacher. With user-friendly anecdotes, practical exercises, and a good sense of humor, he refreshes the experienced student and takes the novice right to the beginning, laying out the essence of Constructive Living

“You can’t be happy all the time. You can’t feel comfortable all the time. You can’t have the feelings you want when you want them for as long as you want them. Life just doesn’t operate like that. Maybe you have tried counseling or therapy or diets or meditation or chemicals or some sort of esoteric magic to work on your feelings, to fix your life or make it perfect. Nothing worked as well as you had hoped. Reading this book won’t solve your life problems either. But it will give you some suggestions that are sensible, practical and doable—suggestions about how to work on your life. Work is the key word here. Sitting and talking with someone is not enough. Venting your feelings is not enough. Putting your mind in some quiet inner place is not enough. Working on your life involves moving your body, doing your life purposefully and constructively. This book offers you concrete assignments for such activity.”Adapting ideas from Japanese psychotherapies and Eastern thought, Constructive Living (CL) offers a sensible way of living. Across cultures and generations, CL ideas make sound, practical sense. Water, Snow, Water presents the current state of CL in its application to the West. Using a variety of materials—including essays, tales, maxims, detailed behavioral advice, case studies—David Reynolds, the founder of CL, presents fresh perspectives on everything from worrying to love, from psychotherapy to death
