Robert Burney M.A. is an author, counselor, and a pioneer in the field of inner child healing / codependency recovery. His book Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls has been called "one of the truly transformational works of our time" - and he has been referred to as "a metaphysical Stephen Hawking." A therapist and Spiritual Teacher whose work has been compared to John Bradshaw's "except much more spiritual" and described as "taking inner child healing to a new level," Robert has developed a holistic strategy for emotional healing that is the next level of recovery / healing / consciousness raising / enlightenment that so many people have been seeking. He has pioneered an inner child healing paradigm that offers a powerful, life changing formula for integrating Love, Spiritual Truth, and intellectual knowledge of healthy behavior into one's emotional experience of life - a blueprint for individuals to transform their core relationship with self and life.
Robert, whose work is firmly grounded on twelve step spiritual principles and emotional energy release / grief process therapy, learned in his own personal recovery that developing internal boundaries was the key to empowerment and freedom from the past. His unique approach and application of the concept of internal boundaries, coupled with a Loving spiritual belief system, make the work innovative and powerfully life changing. It does not matter how much Spiritual Truth, how many mystical experiences of oneness, how in tune with Love, you can feel in certain moments - if you cannot integrate it into your life in a way which changes your emotional experience of life on a moment to moment, day to day basis. You can go to therapy - or be in recovery - for many years, read all the Spiritual and self help books, go to workshops and seminars and lectures - compile encyclopedic intellectual knowledge of what healthy behavior is - and still be reacting to old wounds in the relationships that mean the most to you. In order to start to Truly be more Loving to self, and more open to giving and receiving love from others, it is necessary to change how you relate to your own internal process. If you want to learn how to relax and enjoy life in the moment, while you are healing and learning to Love your self, you want to read his book.
