not what I expected. I have a neurological disease and although consider myself quite metaphysical, have grown tired if all the "heal thyself with your thoughts- positive thinking- new age mumbo jumbo". I busted wanted to be angry and afraid. listening to this book was like having a friend sitting with me in the pit of pain and despair ( the underworld) and knowing exactly how I feel. it was as if she crawled inside my soul and knew all the initimate, deeply intimate, details of my experience. I have never felt so understood. I am very thankful for this voice of comfort, understanding, and validation put forth in a real and respectful manner without sugar or platitudes but a simple, wise, and gentle hand.
