Synopses & Reviews
The third edition of this classic 12-lesson treatise on letting go of limiting thoughts features a new introduction by the author and a new foreword by musician Carlos Santana.
Love Is Letting Go of Fear has been a staple of New Age literature for more than 30 years, and it’s among the most widely read and best-loved books on personal growth. Gerald Jampolsky’s gentle message, presented in 12 easy daily lessons, reminds readers that by letting go of fearful, limited thinking—such as a paralyzing preoccupation with the past or a chronic apprehension over the future—we can make room to thrive in the here and now. The third edition includes a new introduction in which Jampolsky addresses today’s economic realities, and a new foreword by music legend Carlos Santana, a close friend of Jampolsky. The two are co-creators of a new website—ArchitectsofaNewDawn.com—that will interface music, videos, calls to action, and sacred thought for the purpose of activating a higher consciousness and global change. Love Is Letting Go of Fear continues to guide millions of readers toward the realization that by releasing the restrictive thinking imposed by our own minds we can embrace a life in which negativity, doubt, and fear are replaced with optimism, joy, and love.

continues to be among the most widely read and best-loved classics on personal transformation. Both helpful and hopeful, this little gem of a guide offers twelve lessons to help us let go of the past and stay focused on the present as we step confidently toward the future.
Renowned all over the world as the founder of Attitudinal Healing, Dr. Gerald Jampolsky reminds us that the impediments to the life we long for are nothing more than the limitations imposed on us by our own minds. Revealing our true selves, the essence of which is love, is ultimately a matter of releasing those limited--and limiting--thoughts and setting our minds free.
Love Is Letting of Fear has guided millions of readers along the path of self-healing with its deeply powerful yet profoundly humble message. Embrace it with an open mind and a willing heart and let it guide you to a life in which negativity, doubt, and fear are replaced with optimism, joy, and love.
