Well worth a look at if you suffer from past issues and wish to move on.
This book is a totally different approach to dealing with issues. It takes a look at the way in modern society how we suppress all our natural instincts when it comes to trauma. The exercises in the book are easy to follow. And although I have not yet finished with the book it has certainly opened my eyes to different ways in which to heal past hurts.It is certainly worth a read.
