A raw, passionate insight into the personal inner world of the Nurtured Heart Approach by the man who created it. Let Howard take you on the personal Journey of Greatness Practice.
Over the years, Howard Glasser noticed that applying the principles and practices of the Nurtured Heart Approach to himself, a kind of re-parenting in the mode he knew to be most effective at bringing forth a child’s greatness, had a powerful impact. Although he always considered himself a highly positive person, Howard had a realization that under pressure and under the stresses and gravity of life, he was actually self-critical and negative thinking. The Nurtured Heart Approach evolved into a personal practice that shifted him from to an expansive focus on seeing and growing greatness, both within himself and through all his relationships. He found himself drawn powerfully into self-talk that went beyond any standard version of positivity. From this, he developed a greatness practice that could be taught to others. This book is a revealing and transparent exploration of this practice.
The Nurtured Heart Approach awakens children to their greatness. It motivates and uplifts children through appreciation and recognition, giving voice to the value and beauty each child possesses. When children feel cherished this way, their Inner Wealth grows, and they are inspired to use their intensity in positive ways.
