The Flying Boy: Healing the Wounded Man
"Why Men Run From Relationships", Changes magazine
The Flying Boy: Healing the Wounded Man is a record of one man's journey to find his "true masculinity" and his way out of co-dependent and addictive relationships. It's a book for all men and women who grew up in dysfunctional families and are now ready for some fresh insights into their past and their pain.
The Flying Boy is a story about feelings - losing them, finding them and finally expressing them. Here you will find people you know; will discover a way out of the pain and see that it really is OK to express yourself without fear.
The book is about grieving, a very misunderstood process often confused with self-pity. The Flying Boy opens doors to understanding - men will understand themselves and each other, and women will more deeply understand men, learn how to be with wounded men and still take care of themselves.
