From the bestselling author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind: an accessible guide to healing the destructive effects of guilt.
The reaction by parents, teachers and peers to our own actions often determines our sense of self - how confident we feel and how secure we are about our place in the world. When self-blame and pessimism begin to overtake self-esteem and optimism, the rest may be emotional, physical and spiritual distress.
In Guilt is the Teacher, Love is the Answer, Dr. Joan Borysenko, a Harvard Ph.D., explores this mind/body connection as she offers personal and professional advice for journeying toward recovery and self-love.
Here at last is an insightful and uplifting approach for turning the teachings of guilt into the lessons of love. --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.
