When Love Meets Fear: Becoming Defense-Less and Resource-Full Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The author of the best-selling Flow to Be an Adult explains in his popular style how fear cripples our ability to release our full potential. He then presents a concrete program of change for overcoming this fear. Richo looks at th deepest roots of fear: fear of love, loss, change, being alone, fear of others, fear of self-disclosure, fear of giving and receiving, coming and going. His program includes becoming defense-less, that is, allowing ourselves to feel fear without our buffering defenses, and then becoming resource-full, that is, learning to act in new ways.

Features --

-- is written in a conversational tone, yet is informed by dozens of sources and years of professional experience

-- helps distinguish between neurotic fear and appropriate fear

-- integrates psychology with an ecumenical spirituality

-- includes affirmations, suggestions, and concrete actions

Synopsis:

This book has been written for all people who want to let go of unreasonable fear or act more creatively in the face of reasonable fear. It examines the roots of fear - the fear of change, of self-disclosure, of giving and receiving, of being alone. Beneath all of these is the greatest fear of all: the fear of love. Psychologist David Richo has charted a path that can free us from the grip of fear. He suggests things to do that will help us to love even when we're afraid. The way to gain power over fear, he says, is first to become defenseless. When, despite our trepidation, we embrace our weakness, we can no longer be wounded, and fear loses its hold over us.
