The Friend gives a fresh, simple understanding of happiness as a state of Being, and unhappiness as a reflection of our distance from our own Being. In modern language, it shows how we have come to be separated from our own being. The Friend is both guide book and a Journey book. It teaches skills and understanding for navigating through the personality self to find the core states of Being. In the journey we find challenges, tasks, learning, and the precious inner treasures that open to our willingness to be with our self.

About the Author:

Nishant Matthews is an American therapist who specializes in the interface of Psychology and the Soul. Nishant offers the gift of penetrating understanding based on heartful compassion.

Review:

A fascinating, deeply thoughtful and provocative look at one man's devoted quest for truth. It will stimulate reflections that will open the door to greater intimacy and insights into the wondrous, deeper part of our true nature. The Friend represents a breakthrough opportunity to encounter yourself anew. -- Dr. Len Zunin, MD, Author of Contact: The First Four Minutes ; also The Art of Condolence: What to write, say and do at a time of loss

A very rich and brilliantly insightful book, that will help anybody who is either searching for themselves or who is working with people. An amazing work of clarity, lucidity and guidance to compassion and a way to the inner richness of our being. A great manual for all therapists and seekers. Nishant had been working with people since over 30 years. And his wisdom and inner honestly show in this rich and deep book. A true friend he is! --Turiya Hanover, Therapist, Path of Love

Zen Buddhism and western psychotherapy are currently merging in the West much as Buddhism and Taoism did in ancient China to form Zen as we know it today. Zen allows us to experience true emptiness and no-self; psychotherapy provides tools to discover the disowned aspects of our selves that act out in underhanded, covert and even perverted ways. Zen offers probably the deepest and most profound understanding of our true self; psychotherapy helps us become healthier self-actualizing individuals. Together they can enable us to include and yet transcend self and no-self and live life as the unique and true self. I recommend The Friend as a good guide book for such journeys and understanding. -- Zen Master Dennis Genpo Merzel, author of Big Mind Big Heart, Finding Your Way

Finally an emotionally intelligent guide for all of us who seek to befriend ourselves, and others in the process. Nishant Matthews offers us an extremely powerful (yet never invasive)wise and inspiring way to come to understand our body, heart and soul, and how they work together. `The Friend' is at the same time an extraordinarily readable journal of a quest for our universal oneness and eternal innocence. -- Caroline Beumer-Peeters, co-author of "Parents' Skills" (a guide for solution focused parenting based on "Kids' Skills"), co-author of the Dutch version of Mission Possible and author of "Mission Possible, manual for coaches
