Daily Tools for Transforming Anger, Depression, and Fear
A GROUND-BREAKING BOOK, Emotional Wisdom reveals powerful ancient tools for transforming our painful emotions into happiness and health. So-called negative emotions are valuable messages that we are out of balance. With compassion and humor, Taoist authors Mantak Chia and Dena Saxer discuss the messages that anger, depression, fear, worry, and stress offer us. They present three easy-to-learn twenty-minute internal energy practices, with helpful illustrations, to transform these imbalances into harmony and joy.
They explain the Taoist principle that unresolved emotional pain harms our internal organs, which leads to disease. They provide unusual nutritional advice for emotional healing and a Taoist First Aid section gives proven natural remedies for minor ailments such as insomnia, indigestion, headaches, smoking and overeating. Relevant quotes from the Tao Te Ching add inspiration to this practical, enjoyable, life-changing book.
