Black Duck Moments
by Dr. Bruce Singer

In this inspirational, honest, and accessible book, Bruce F. Singer provides a daily dose of hope to address the underlying thoughts and feelings that magnify chronic pain and suffering. Through a brilliant original metaphor for embracing wellness, he encourages us to shift our attention from the familiar and habitual “white ducks” of fear, shame, anger, and sadness to the “black ducks” of acceptance, gratitude, and compassion. Each day of the year becomes a fresh opportunity to understand our values and commit to living with purpose and passion despite pain or illness. This is a book to keep on your e-reader or nightstand to read a page a day. No matter where you start, the clear, insightful affirmations will motivate you to transform your life and find black duck moments every day.

Praise for Black Duck Moments Every Day:

“Our lives evolve and change when we experience new things, but not if we don’t notice.  This book asks us to witness the paradigm busting exceptions that arise each and every day, hidden in plain sight. It is such a small thing but that very fact is yet another “black duck.” The seeds of life-transformation are all around you. Spend a year in a daily practice of noticing them and you cannot help but be changed for the better.”

“At last, an entire book about an important and frequently overlooked theme: subtle can be significant.  Deep transformation can come about if you bring enough concentration, clarity, and equanimity to the often-tiny positives that are naturally available even in the midst of immense negatives.”

Shinzen Young

“Black Duck Moments Every Day is an inspirational source of light for those living with chronic pain who feel that they are often times living in the darkness. In such a beautiful and supportive way, Bruce F. Singer provides daily affirmations to help those suffering tap into and embrace their own happiness and see beyond their condition. These black duck moments, as Bruce calls them, exist everywhere, but our pain and fear can block us from seeing what’s truly good in our lives. When we learn to tap into our own inner light, our consciousness shifts and we’re able to see and celebrate the true beauty in ourselves and the world around us. This book is an incredible companion for just that! These daily affirmations will leave you with a renewed perspective, appreciation and deep sense of compassion toward yourself and your journey of life. It’s a must-have for anyone committed to living their best life!”
