4.0 out of 5 stars Experience strength and hope, July 12, 2008
A cellular biologist, psychotherapist and spiritual facilitator, Dr. Borysenko brings a unique professional background to the discussion of unhealthy guilt and it's antidote. She makes helpful distinctions between healthy guilt and destructive shame pointing out that while one is necessary to refine our behavior the other rots us from the inside out. Some will find her potpourri of religion, psychology and mystical influences challenging if they have not ventured outside the boundaries of conventional interpretations of spirituality. Others who understand the idea that "religion is for people afraid of going to hell and spirituality is for people who have been there" may be more open to the suggestions in this book. Take what you want and leave the rest. Borysenko's own cafeteria approach to healing demonstrates an honesty, open-mindedness and willingness many believe necessary to free oneself from the crush of inner demons. When Borysenko brings her own experiences to the table, it is easier to understand her approach. This book requires an open mind to appreciate this attempt to mark one path, if not THE path, to healing.
