For most who had to endure difficult or traumatic childhoods life today probably feels like a grey and hopeless blur. Is it fair that after surviving (and losing) childhood we should be condemned to exist as ghosts, wasting away the remaining of our lives? The amazing approach offered in this book says otherwise; it affirms that it is our right to heal, recover, and get our lives back on track! More
Why aren't we enjoying happy, fulfilling lives? This empowering book argues that maladies such as depression, OCD, Bipolar Disorder, addictions, chronic pains and much more are not what prevents our happiness, but manifestations of unsolved conflicts we carry within us. It explains in clear terms how, in order to go through small developmental blocks up to severe traumatic experiences, we generate during childhood and early adolescence a protective ego-personality that attempts to shield our vulnerable Self from harm. Like an accomplished Warrior, this entity does indeed complete the mission, but at a terrible cost: he takes over our realities and forever arrests the development of the amazing beings we were born to be. But there is hope!
Through a new, dynamic paradigm and techniques Gustav Berg, a survivor of childhood trauma, shares and shows how we can help our Warriors stand down, and rejoice in the advent of a well-earned inner peace. Any long-time sufferer will surely find relief, understanding and hope from the ideas and guidance this clever approach offers.
