Helpful resource & deserves greater recognition. “Wellspring of Compassion” deserves more exposure, especially for those that are highly-sensitive & on a healing path. I learned about it a while ago but didn’t purchase right away. Recently it showed again on my radar & chose to get it. I AM SO GLAD I DID.
It’s really amazing for myriad reasons & it was good buying further along the path than when 1st learning of it. Speaking only for myself, its content is relatable, having many “yes that’s it!” moments & feeling validated & grateful at the same time. There were also concrete examples & new idea toolbox suggestions. A powerful reminder that what we need to heal the tender parts within us, really is within us. And that might mean seeking outside resources to gather tools to get there. I won’t sugar coat it- sometimes the work is sometimes slow, lonely & feels impossibly hard, yet (for me) so worth it getting through the messy middle & move on to the next part of my work. I’ve loved the quote from Siddhartha “We are not going in circles, we are going upwards. The path is a spiral; we have already climbed many steps” & a very similar message was conveyed in the book.
Like any advice/self help book, take what works & leave the rest behind. Trauma is deeply individual/personal & how events in our lives impact everyone differently. One size does not fit all. Sending love to those who need it. 🌀❤️
