A Book to Read and Love: The Tao of Fully Feeling: Harvesting Forgiveness Out of Blame - Pete Walker

 


A short summary of The Tao of Fully Feeling:

How to develop emotional intelligence, even though your parents suck.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Children cannot experience the raw, ongoing pain of parental rejection and still maintain the desire to live."


Questions to ponder while reading The Tao of Fully Feeling:

Have you been able to overcome your childhood trauma?

Have you been able to forgive yet?

My thoughts about the book:

Goes directly into the challenges facing those raised by bad parents.

A good process of grieving and recovery.

I, personally, think that a close relationship with God as well as a community to worship with (and replace the family ties) is integral to healing, however, it sounds like the author had a really bad experience with it.
