If you're ready to experience more pathways to self-acceptance, let this collection support your journey.
How can you bring peace to the inner wars that are in the way of having the life you want? For more than 30 years now, Ann Weiser Cornell has been exploring, teaching, and writing about the mysteries of emotional process, including:
The paradox of how we become more whole by acknowledging our parts
How the most despised places in us contain our greatest treasure
How the body's felt sense, held in a compassionate state of Presence, is the key to change
Now her key writings have been brought together in one place, freshly edited for this volume, with four new articles offering Ann's leading-edge work. All are accessible both to the seeker of personal change and to the professional who wants to be more effective in working with others.
What you’ll gain from this book:
Clear, specific examples of what an inner relationship can look like as a conversation between you, as a compassionate Presence, and a “something in you” that needs your attention/acknowledgment.
An understanding of how some aspects of your experience get exiled and why it’s so important to invite them back in again
An inside look at the “third way” that is so essential to Focusing: a way where you are neither identifying with nor dissociating from your emotional experiences.
