Try Softer by Thomas A. Newnam
How to recover your natural state of happiness and clarity of purpose
Through his deep experience as a family counselor, therapist, husband, parent and grandparent, Thomas Newnam's Try Softer offers us a clear, compassionate and practical guide to a revelation in consciousness: trying softer rather than harder uncovers the heart's innate treasure of wisdom, intuitive intelligence, and unconditional love of self and others. Soften, and let this book's tenderness flow into your heart.
Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Spiritual Liberation and Life Visioning
A master watercolorist, karate black belt and psychotherapist, Tom Newnam skillfully marries his lifetime of self-reflection with the influences of family, friends, events, a pony and several horses to paint a picture in words of how a Try Softer approach allowed him to achieve spiritual alignment.
