Healing the Shame That Binds You is the most enduring work of family relationship expert and New York Times best-selling author John Bradshaw. In it, he shows how unhealthy toxic shame, often learned young and maintained into adulthood, is the core component in our compulsions, co-dependencies, addictions and drive to superachieve.

This book is in my view one of the single most important books for setting a foundation for spiritual growth. If spiritual growth is a journey, then this book is the bag which holds the nourishment you need to complete the journey

From everyday stress to severe trauma, many obstacles to a full life can be overcome by developing what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel calls "mindsight," our ability to perceive the mind and literally redirect the flow of energy and information within our brains. Through this powerful capacity for insight and empathy, we can "rewire" crucial connections, create dynamic linkages, and open ourselves to relationships in a new way.

Daniel’s understanding of the physical properties of the brain, along with his understanding of how the mind can engage in activities that can harness those psychical properties of the brain to create lasting positive change to a suffering person is a piece of gold that should should be in everyone’s literary jewellery box.
Daniel has found a way to help people of all ages learn to understand their life experiences and come to understand the complexity of the brain in a simple way that is easy to visualise and to understand well enough to integrate into people’s lives.
A truly great read for anyone looking to free themselves from the prisons that are constructed in our growing up
