I'm interested to know if anyone has seen or read this book
, Emotional Freedom by Judith Orloff. I am doubtful about these sorts of things, and respond with some skepticism when i hear that we can 'transform our lives' and 'release our negative emotions'. While i have experienced transformation on a personally level it seems to have become a bit of a buzz word and it's meaning watered down. The aversion to 'negative' feelings also seems to have gone into overkill.
I agree that we can easily get stuck in despair and immobilised by fear but to turn our back on those feelings denies us the learning and wisdom that comes from allowing the feelings to come to the surface in meaningful way that stops short of indulgence. This is my perspective and am interested in others in light of generating empathy and emotional intelligence.
What is your perspective on this?
