Feeding Your Demons: Ancient Wisdom for Resolving Inner Conflictby Tsultrim Allione
Synopses & Reviews
Tsultrim Allione brings an eleventh-century Tibetan woman's practice to the West for the first time with FEEDING YOUR DEMONS, an accessible and effective approach for dealing with negative emotions, fears, illness, and self-defeating patterns. Allione-one of only a few female Buddhist leaders in this country and comparable in American religious life to Pema Chodron-bridges this ancient Eastern practice with today's Western psyche. She explains that if we fight our demons, they only grow stronger. But if we feed them, nurture them, we can free ourselves from the battle. Through the clearly articulated practice outlined in FEEDING YOUR DEMONS, we can learn to overcome any obstacle and achieve freedom and inner peace.
Outlines an accessible five-step program for treating an array of conditions related to negative emotions, in a guide that combines Buddhist philosophies with western techniques to counsel readers on the importance of nurturing, rather than fighting, one's demons in order to address such issues as weight gain, depression, and addiction.
Tsultrim Allione was one of the first Western women to be ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist nun. She is considered an authority in the world of American religious life, recognized as an emanation of Machig Labdr
