Uscire dalla paura
Author: Krishnananda, Amana
Publisher: Feltrinelli Editore
Esplorare le ferite del bambino interiore e comprendere quanto queste condizionano la nostra vita e la nostra possibilità di essere felici costituisce solo un primo passo nella conoscenza di sé. Occorre anche rendersi conto che con quelle ferite abbiamo finito per identificarci: noi pensiamo di essere quel ?bambino emozionale” che costituisce un'esperienza di sé piena di paura, vergogna, sfiducia e fatta di comportamenti compulsivi, che è dentro di noi e sfugge però al nostro controllo e alla nostra coscienza. Il secondo passo consiste dunque nel capire che non siamo questo bambino ferito, poiché questa autoimmagine negativa non è che il risultato di un potente condizionamento proveniente dal passato. È proprio il cambiamento della percezione di sé che può cambiare anche la vita: per usare una metafora, se ci siamo sempre identificati con il brutto anatroccolo serve la consapevolezza di ciò e la presa di distanza dall'immagine che ci siamo fatti di noi per sentirci finalmente cigni. L'identificazione con il bambino emozionale è profonda, poiché è iniziata quando si stava formando il concetto di sé, e influisce in modo determinante sulle nostre esistenze tramite ripetizione degli stessi schemi di comportamento, assuefazione a un dato atteggiamento, riproporsi di certi incidenti o malattie, continuo sabotaggio della propria vita, rassegnazione o scoraggiamento. Ecco allora che, proseguendo nel cammino di ricerca interiore iniziato sotto il suo maestro spirituale Osho e basandosi sull'esperienza personale e quale conduttore di gruppi, Krishnananda mostra come sia possibile osservando in noi il bambino emozionale liberarci poco alla volta dal suo controllo, dalla sua influenza e dalla paura che ancora suscita in noi.

Stepping Out of Fear
Author: Krishnananda Trobe, M.d., Krishnananda Trobe M D
Often, we are strongly identified with our wounded self-image that we are deficient and inadequate. This negative sense of self fills us with fear and anxiety and causes us to repeat painful patterns in our intimate relationships, sabotaging our creativity, entering into unhealthy addictions and/or become depressed and ill. In this book, Krishnananda with his partner, Amana, present a simple method for learning how to step out of our identification with this wounded self-image and in so doing, break out of our negative patterns and our suffering. The book is simple and personal with the authors sharing how they have worked with this method in their own life and with people in their seminars. Each chapter also ends with helpful exercises so that the reader can apply the work practically to his or her own life.
While most of us have moments of loving freely and openly, it is often hard to sustain this where it matters most—in our intimate relationships. Why if love is so great and powerful are human relationships so challenging and difficult? If love is the source of happiness and joy, why is it so hard to open to it fully and let it govern our lives? In this book, John Welwood addresses these questions and shows us how to overcome the most fundamental obstacle that keeps us from experiencing love's full flowering in our lives. Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships begins by showing how all our relational problems arise out of a universal, core wounding around love that affects not only our personal relationships but the quality of life in our world as a whole. This wounding shows up as a pervasive mood of unlove—a deep sense that we are not intrinsically lovable just as we are. And this shuts down our capacity to trust, so that even though we may hunger for love, we have difficulty opening to it and letting it circulate freely through us. This book takes the reader on a powerful journey of healing and transformation that involves learning to embrace our humanness and appreciate the imperfections of our relationships as trail-markers along the path to great love. It sets forth a process for releasing deep-seated grievances we hold against others for not loving us better and against ourselves for not being better loved. And it shows how our longing to be loved can magnetize the great love that will free us from looking to others to find ourselves. Written with penetrating realism and a fresh, lyrical style that honors the subtlety and richness of our relationship to love itself, this revolutionary book offers profound and practical guidance for healing our lives as well as our embattled world.

Fear -- the word, itself, conjures the appropriate response. With a dark cacophony of associations like fright, dread, horror, panic, alarm, anxiety, and terror, fear is universally understood as one of the most basic and powerful of human emotions, obtaining a nearly palpable and overwhelming substance in today's world. In this groundbreaking book, acclaimed historian and prize-winning author Joanna Bourke covers the landscape of fear over the past two hundred years: From the nineteenth century dread of being buried alive -- a subject dear to the heart of Edgar Allen Poe -- to the current worry over being able to die when one chooses; from the diagnoses of phobias and anxieties produced by psychotherapists and lovingly catalogued, to the role of popular culture and media in inciting panic and dread; from the horrors of the nuclear age to the fear of twenty-first century terrorism, Fear tells the story of anguish in modern times. A blend of social and cultural history with psychology, philosophy, and popular science, this astonishing book -- exhaustively researched and beautifully written -- offers strikingly original insights into the mind and worldview of the "long twentieth century” from one of the most brilliant scholars of our time.

Feelings and Moods
Author: Christophe André
Happiness, sadness, compassion, resentment, despair: just some of the feelings and moods that characterize the lives of each one of us. They are part and parcel of our everyday lives and they affect everything we do, like a kind of mental climate that surrounds and permeates our activities and thoughts. But what exactly are these ever-present feelings and moods? Here the leading psychiatrist Christophe André analyses feelings and moods as the contents of consciousness that mix together emotions and thoughts, the background sensations and impressions that are less intense than primary emotions like anger but longer lasting and more influential – a slight feeling of guilt can poison the entire day. Their impact is more comprehensive because they owe their existence not to a particular situation or event that triggers them but rather to our relationship with the world in general. Drawing on his own practice as a psychiatrist, André explores some of the most important feelings and moods and shows how, by understanding them better, we can achieve a calmer, happier and more fulfilling life. Written in the fresh and accessible style that has won him a large international following, Feelings and Moods will appeal to a wide readership.

Gender, generations, and lineage; faith, hope, and justice; gifts, duties, and debts; affection, responsibility, and generativity; values, secrets, and objectives; transmissions and transitions: these are the primary themes of family.

Family assumes different forms and attire according to culture and the passage of time, but there are seeds that pass constantly through the millstone of family relationships and make up its identity.
