Quotes

Evil is in the inability to put ourselves in another person’s shoes

What we don’t see is many people setting aside a weekly practice of self reflection

If we look at mental health as a skill that can be learned, we can get out of the model that it’s something that’s part of us.


Gregg Krech has served as the Executive Director of the ToDo Institute since 1992. Gregg is one of the leading authorities on Japanese psychology in the United States and the author of several books including the award-winning book, Naikan: Gratitude, Grace and the Japanese Art of Self-Reflection (Stone Bridge Press).
