The Dance of Fear: Rising Above the Anxiety, Fear, and Shame to Be Your Best and Bravest Selfby Harriet Lerner
Synopses & Reviews
Unhappiness, says bestselling author Harriet Lerner, is fueled by three key emotions: anxiety, fear, and shame. They are the uninvited guests in our lives. When tragedy or hardship hits, they may become our constant companions.
Anxiety can wash over us like a tidal wave or operate as a silent thrum under the surface of our daily lives. With stories that are sometimes hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking, Lerner takes us from "fear lite" to the most difficult lessons the universe sends us. We learn:
No one signs up for anxiety, fear, and shame, but we cant avoid them either. As we learn to respond to these three key emotions in new ways, we can live more fully in the present and move into the future with courage, clarity, humor, and hope. Fear and Other Uninvited Guests shows us how.
"Witty prose?A mindful and highly readable meditation.? Publisher?s Weekly
Using her wonderfully rich and inviting therapeutic voice along with personalmemories and examples drawn from her practice, Lerner gives anxiety, fear andshame their due.
