This week, "Art and Soul" is about the art of well being. WEMU's Lisa Barry talks with local teacher, author, and ecotherapist Barbra White, who has written several books and teaches about self-acceptance. She explains how "what we accept transforms and what we resist persists" and how self-acceptance empowers choices to improve our lives.

There are many different ways to approach well being and living a mindful, well-balanced life.  The Diamond Approach is one of those ways that helps you connect with your true nature.  WEMU's Lisa Barry talks with Lou Weir, an Ann Arbor teacher of the Diamond Approach, about the personal practice designed to connect us with our more authentic, essential selves.

The end of a calendar year is typically a time of deep personal reflection for a lot of people.

University of Michigan

This week on Art and Soul, I am joined by University of Michigan professor Dr. Robert Pasick, who holds a PhD in psychology from Harvard University.

Dr. Pasick has written six books with the latest one on self awareness.  It's called "Self Aware-A Guide for Success in Work and Life."

He talks about how well do we know ourselves, how well do we know other people, and how do we manage ourselves and our relationships, including intimacy and one-on-one relationships.
