Author Amy Eden on 'Why I Wrote The Kind Self-Healing Book.'
When examining the reactive, defensive, isolating, and safety-seeking behaviors that anyone from a less-than-perfect family knows well -- simply as learned habits and plain old survival -- your path to personal transformation, deep love, and growth starts with The Kind Self-Healing Book.
Amy Eden understands the importance -- and particular challenges -- of nurturing self-care and self-love, having embarked on the complex journey herself.
As a result, this candid and sympathetic book invites readers to take a courageous look inside their hearts and minds, guided by sensitivity and love, so they may discover how some of their unconscious behaviors are hurting them.
Even in the center of some very raw emotion, you will find that the book's guidance and activities are gentle every step of the way, allowing you to cultivate great self-compassion.
Don't wait for permission to shine your light. Take your own hand and start the journey.
