Share:

How can tragedy transform into an opportunity to love? Dr. Edith Eger, bestselling author and psychologist grew up knowing that her mind was her superpower. After being sent to Auschwitz at only 16 years old and barely surviving the Holocaust, she made it her life’s work to help other people heal and free themselves from the prison of their own negative thoughts. She shares her wisdom on how to find strength in your suffering, turn hatred into empathy, take responsibility instead of being a victim, and become the source of your own happiness.
