Six Sessions of Practical Guidance

Drawing from her popular courses at Stanford University, Dr. McGonigal presents six video sessions designed to help you reach your specific goal. Whether it’s changing a habit, cultivating a particular strength, creating health, or transforming a stressful pattern in your life, find support in choosing a personal focus and implementing the strategies for making that change.

Each session blends lecture, experiential exercises, and easy-to-follow guided meditations with the author. In addition, you’ll receive real-world homework assignments and self-reflection practices.

Mindful Awareness and Self-Compassion for Change

For so many of us, even the idea of change can be overwhelming. We fear that true change is impossible; we give up too easily in the face of obstacles; we focus on the wrong things and try to control the uncontrollable; or we might even think that we can’t be happy until we accomplish the change we most want.

With Choose to Change, discover how to create a new and healthy relationship to change through a compassionate, mindful approach seen throughout the world’s wisdom traditions—and being verified today in the emerging fields of neuroscience and evolutionary psychology. Learn more about:

  • Cultivating a transformational vision for your life
  • How to mindfully engage with your new choices
  • Identifying your core values and making specific commitments
  • How to move from self-criticism to self-compassion
  • The dance of change and acceptance
  • How to direct the ongoing flow of change

The Unfolding Process of Personal Transformation

From behaviors to beliefs big and small, everyone has something they’d like to change about themselves. Choose to Change brings you clinically supported methods—what Dr. McGonigal calls her favorite science-help strategies—for training the mind away from default states and negativity that no longer serve us and establishing behaviors and attitudes aligned with our highest values and aspirations. Join her in this empowering program for reflecting inner change in the outer world and embracing the unfolding process of personal transformation.

Review for Choose to Change Review by Anna A

the content was wonderful, but the format was sometime problematic.

Review for Choose to Change Review by Christine A

I really like Kelly McGonigal. She's calm and insightful with a really pleasant manner. If you've read her book, you can consider this course The Willpower Instinct-Lite because it deals more with meditation and little fun exercises than the science in her book. My only complaint is that this was a taping of a live online course. During one of the sessions, I think it was 3 or 4, the video link between the moderator and Kelly McGonigal was severed so we just had her voice. That session should have been re-recorded before selling this video course. I didn't pay for an audiobook and felt ripped off. It seems very lazy and unprofessional of Sounds True not to have done so. Luckily, the moderator and Dr. McGonigal are both very likable with interesting insights.

Review for Choose to Change Review by Adaire

This course offered education, along with tools on how to move forward ~ ~ and .... started me on the path of meditating, as I noticed a huge difference after the exercises. Kelly's unique way of sharing this information and bits of her own story, can really get her students to understand the process and connect with it ~ ~ she is an amazing teacher! I am soooo grateful to have stumbled upon her and also excited to check out the Sounds True site a bit more ~ beautiful concept .... sharing tools to enhance the lives of others in an affordable way, that we can complete in our own time. I am hoping it stays accessible for a little longer, as I would like to work through it one more time to help the information stick. Mahalo!!

The rating is for the material which is great. I was not thrilled with the download process which was lengthy and confusing.

Review for Choose to Change Review by danny c

Very helpful/informative, with a diverse variety of perspectives from which to contemplate and address issues. I especially like the simply-put metaphors and analogies. I would highly recommend McGonigal's approach to change.
