Radical Acceptance: Awakening the Love that Heals Fear and Shame Within Us

Front Cover
Rider, 2003 - Compassion - 333 pages
In the West, most of us have suffered the fear of not being 'good enough', feeling insecure about our appearance, our sexuality, our intelligence, our spiritual progress or - often most importantly - being worthy of love. When these feelings of insufficiency or self-aversion are strong, we fear abandonment and rejection. Many people have already found the Buddhist perspective on the emotions to be extremely valuable - and this book will be a major practical contribution to the subject.
