In many ways we have never been more 'free' - to follow our dreams, set goals and live the life we choose. Ye mental health issues are sky-rocketing, we are more addicted, distracted and pressured, and more people feel overwhelmed by daily living in a world that seems to breed discontent, anxiety and depression. So, is all our so-called freedom nothing more than a trap of our own making? Are we, as the saying goes, simply decorating the cage that keeps us imprisoned? What can we do personally and collectively to change the status quo?
The Freedom Trap is an inspiring call for clear thinking and a fresh appraisal of what our freedoms mean and can become. In this challenging, confronting and eye-opening look at what freedom really is - from philosophical, psychological, political, social, legal, ethical, scientific, historical and neurological perspectives - mindfulness expert Craig Hassed explores how we can alleviate our burdens and find a life of peace, happiness and harmony - true freedom.
Including practical thinking steps to help further your understanding of what freedom really means, this book is essential reading for anyone who has ever thought 'there must be more to life than this'.show more
