Freeing Ourselves from Our Family of Origin invites you on an exciting, sometimes painful, mysterious, frightening, and always intriguing exploration into your family of origin. It highlights the strong yet subtle, binding but invisible, ties that may stifle or restrict you as an adult. To be free to live independently, the authors suggest, we all must learn the art of escape, the Houdini experience. Many of us treasure our family connections and wish to maintain flexible links with its members. However, these must be chosen connections rather than vestigial bonds if we are to achieve our potential in all relationships. This book is for people who are trapped, bound, and unable to move in their lives, often without even knowing it. It shows readers how to escape from pasts that paralyze them, not necessarily because they were traumatic, but because they imprison the present.
