Publisher Comments:

Are you longing for your life to be easier and more fun? Would you like to stop pushing, micromanaging, and forcing things so you can relax? What if you could enjoy what you have instead of always lusting for “more”? What if you could live in “the zone,” propelled by powerful currents toward the right people and opportunities? What if you could stop worrying about money and live with more emotional ease in the moment? If you answer “yes” to all these questions and desire lasting positive change, then prepare to experience the ecstasy of surrender.

The art of letting go, Dr. Judith Orloff explains, is the secret key to manifesting power and success in all areas of  life, including work, relationships, sexuality, radiant aging, and health and healing. In our superconnected world where emails and text messages constantly interrupt us, it’s easier to let go than you think. Once embraced, surrendering removes roadblocks and the exhaustion that comes from “trying too hard” — and it helps you achieve goals more effortlessly and brings ongoing happiness.

With her stunning gift for storytelling coupled with her unique, results-oriented approach to physical, emotional, and spiritual health — marrying neuroscience, psychiatry, intuitive medicine, energy techniques, and more — Judith provides a powerful, practical, and accessible map for anyone who is longing to be happier but who feels stuck, burned-out, tense, worried, or afraid to let go.

Review:

"In this hope-filled offering, Orloff (Emotional Freedom) posits that the only way to live a powerful, successful life is to surrender to it. Blending neuroscience, energy medicine, psychiatry, and the art of intuition, Orloff, an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at UCLA, addresses major life issues by breaking them into 12 different 'surrenders,' including 'redefining true success, power, and happiness'; the 'four vital insights into power and letting go'; 'cultivating impeccable communication'; and 'exploring the divinity of your body and sexuality.' With a compassionate and empowering tone, she counsels others not to micromanage life details, but to be in 'flow' with them and to look for the lessons in all situations as well as to refuse to live a life governed by fear. Self-assessment quizzes allow readers to measure their level of involvement in self-defeating behaviors; helpful and non-judgmental suggestions provide strategies for overcoming these negative mind-sets. Orloff demonstrates her own adherence to these principles by unflinchingly sharing her own experiences in the spirit of teaching others." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

The Ecstasy of Surrender, Judith Orloff, Harmony Books, 2014, $26
Judith Orloff, M.D., a UCLA psychiatrist and beloved intuitive healer, masterfully explores how the power of letting go allows you to achieve personal and spiritual freedom. Combining mainstream medicine and beyond, Dr. Orloff blows apart old ideas about health, aging, sex, power, beauty and money by showing that surrender is not defeat ��" it is the missing key to true success. She defines surrender as the grace of knowing when to flow with life rather than fighting it or pushing so hard you sabotage yourself. I especially love the section on surrendering in relationships ��" how to surrender to love and let go of obsessive and “delusional” relationships that stand in the way of love. Also, you’ll learn the art of setting boundaries with toxic people and practice the mantra: No is a complete sentence. The great miracle of surrender is that you can live in the passionate zone of the heart and gain deep faith in yourself and the divinity of your life. Dr. Orloff writes, "If you're like me ��" someone who wants to become everything you were meant to be and more ��" surrender is a doorway in." Savor the wisdom and joy that jumps off of the pages.
