I have read endless things from scholarly articles, text books, to words from healers and super spiritual approaches to trauma, nightmares, etc. Wellspring of Compassion is one of the best. It is just scientific enough and just “woo woo” enough to give a well rounded perspective, and like another reviewer said, endlessly kind and comforting. It validates the reader while also offering solutions. The author offers examples and theories while still validating the reader’s experience and process. It has everything I could want in a book like this that I have found lacking in others.
