Wow, this book is brilliant. This is the book on emotions and handling all kinds of emotions that I have been looking for all my life. McLaren welcomes all emotions (including anger, hate, sadness), finds gifts in each of them, and suggests practices for channeling the energy of all emotions in ways that supports one's growth and healing while simultaneously respecting the boundaries of others. She doesn't shy away from any emotion, looks at each directly, and suggests what each has to teach us. ...more

I find that she could have said a lot of this in less words, and i find myself suspeicious of her data, now that I know she's turned away from her energy work life and is very deragatory about it. It'd be one thing if she shifted towards a more scientific approach and still honored her work before, but what I've read doesn't sound like that, and that makes me want to through this book out. But there is some good information here. You just have to wade through a lot of words.

An amazing book that has helped me tremendously with finding out the message of certain emotions that come up and how to get through them. I love how she explains how emotions and their messages to our souls. Instead of us trying to avoid feeling what we feel, we must breathe, understand and get through it. It's a beautiful and powerful book!
