This book offers a surprising new prescription for coping with depression and anxiety, as well as other painful emotional states: don't try to get rid of them. In Healing Through The Dark Emotions, Miriam Greenspan shows us that there's something good in so-called 'bad' feelings, if we would only stop and listen to them. She explains why learning to attend, befriend, and surrender to emotional pain actually leads to lasting relief, greater wisdom, and a deep sense of fulfilment.
