The Undefended Self is a profound pragmatic guide to living the spiritual-psychological path toward union-with self, with others and with the essence of life. Here we learn, through the Pathwork teachings, and through true personal stories of conflict, crisis and breakthrough: -The maps and processes for the hero's journey for our times. -How to dismantle personal defenses safely and sanely and to anchor in our original divine nature. -How meeting the unconscious dark side of human nature releases powerful new energies for creativity, love, aliveness, and awakening and leaves us permanently changed. -how to work with the invitations, tasks, and realities of each of the developmental stages of consciousness. Like such other contemporary spiritual teachings as "A Course in Miracles" and "Conversations with God," "The Undefended Self is a clarion call of hope and liberation for ourselves and for our world. "The Undefended Self" has been published in seven languages and is read at schools of healing and transformation and in study groups around the world.
Susan Thesenga has taught the Pathwork throughout the United States and in Brazil. She started on this path more than forty years ago, after meeting Eva Pierrakos, whose Pathwork teachings gave direction and meaning to Susan's lifelong spiritual search. In 1972 Susan and her husband, Donovan, founded Sevenoaks Pathwork Center in Madison, Virginia, where they still live and work.
The book helped me discover why I am so negative and how to stop it.
Since reading this book (took over 6 months because it is pretty deep) I have begun appreciating my life and those who are in it. I stopped complaining about my coworkers and instead have started to understand them. I have become more encouraging rather than pointing out their flaws.
I understand others better and want to speak using more positive language. I now point out their positive traits instead of flaws.
Just like a thick hearty soup there is much to take in and digest and thus may take some time to read.Being prepared to take full responsibility for your life is a big prerequisite in the book.Enjoy.
