What you will find out:

Lesson One: Soul Words
If you are such a good person, why do you sometimes feel so mean inside? And if you are such a bad person, why are you plagued by fits of conscience? Just as Freud developed the vocabulary that enables you to speak about your psyche, the Tanya provides the key terms and constructs that allow you to speak about your soul . . . or souls. What kind of person are you? What is the source of inner conflict? This lesson introduces the lexicon you will need in order to answer these questions.

Lesson Two: Getting A Grip on Yourself
It can be enlightening to know why you succumb to temptations that you wish you had resisted. But is there a strategy to gaining self-control? This lesson provides practical guidelines for overcoming weakness and learning to control behavior.

Lesson Three: Sync or Sink
When your heart’s passion pulls you one way and your measured mind pulls another way, the disconnect can be agonizing. This lesson will teach you two methods for aligning reason and emotion, so you can reduce stress and live decisively.

Lesson Four: The Joyride
Constant doubt and emotional unhappiness can gradually sap you of the strength and will to change. But joy provides the boost that allows you to live each day with enthusiasm and resolve. This lesson provides useful perspectives that can help you generate a positive attitude.

Lesson Five: The Big Picture
Even after learning methods for overcoming personal challenges and pursuing goodness, you may still wonder why it all matters. What is the purpose of imperfect attempts at perfection? Do your human failings condemn you to be a personal failure? Or might your weaknesses provide an opportunity for your making a unique contribution to the world? Lesson Five allows you to make peace with your personal struggles, as you consider your place in the larger scheme of things.

Lesson Six: Have a Heart
Most of Tanya focuses on how you can gain control of the way you act, even if your feelings and motives are not always pure. For those who are patient enough to pursue a slow fix, this final lesson provides meditations and guidelines for reshaping your essential nature over time, while recognizing that the true key to living purposefully is behaving purposefully.
