You Are the Guru by Gabrielle Bernstein

I listened to the unabridged audio version of You Are the Guru by Gabrielle Bernstein and narrated by the author. 

Listening time for You Are the Guru by Gabrielle Bernstein is 3 hours, 32 minutes.

I loved this self-help audiobook!! I love the 6 different messages and exercises to use to help one through difficult times. It would have been extremely helpful to have access to this audiobook at the start of 2020 when the Covid-19 global pandemic first took off, along with the social isolation/shelter at home orders in place, and the social distancing began. 

I personally found 2020 to be an extremely stressful year with the all the uncertainty surrounding the novel Coronavirus, the lack of information, and the onslaught of Covid-19 cases, rising death toll and hospital emergency rooms and ICUs on overload due to Covid-19 outbreak.

Nonetheless, I am glad I discovered You Are the Guru by Gabrielle Bernstein last month. I look forward to putting the strategies set forth by the author into action to help overcome any anxiety, worry, doubt, fear, etc. in the future. The messages Gabrielle Bernstein has given is all about empowerment.

  1. Self-help books seldom live up to their hype. It sounds like this one did so for you and that's great.

    1. I agree with you and that self-help books seldom live up to their hype.

      Or I find that my best intentions to implement the techniques or advice from self help books fall short.
