Wendy Dolber weaves the teachings of Bruce Di Marsico through "Annie", who represents the child in us all. Instead of searching in adulthood for the tools to deal with the wounds of growing up in a dysfunctional family, she learned them firsthand from "The Guru Next Door" while growing up. This enabled her to understand and develop some healthy emotional boundaries, such as that her parents unhappiness was their own choice and not her "fault". Although confused as to who she is in all of this chaos, Bruce's friendship and guidance help her to recognize that she herself is a separate individual in the making, and can "be" and "feel" what's real and true for her and her alone. As she emerges into young womanhood, we see that the truths she turns to within herself will continue to guide her for the rest of her journey.
"The Guru Next Door" is a delightfully unique way to tell the story of Bruce Di Marsico and his insightful teachings. Not only deep and revealing, but fun too!
