Synopsis of book
Unless we have already become enlightened gods and goddesses, we all have needs for security, love, belonging, etc. Sometimes our needs and desires are not met by our life circumstances, which can make us feel distressed, discouraged, overwhelmed, etc. Using examples from her own life, and referring to tantric, taoist and other theoretical frameworks, Sam Red encourages us to become the master of our reactions and responses. She proposes techniques based on mindfulness, relaxation, hope/faith, connecting with nature, loving with awareness and accepting suffering. Moreover, she asks us to explore our identity beyond what we know of ourselves as rational, emotional beings so that we can live our lives in a more empowered and self-sustaining way.
