Are you feeling that popular psychology leaves you ashamed about how ugly you are in whatever way, and ineffective at following their advice on how to change? You’ve tried dieting (or to overcome your anxiety or depression, or bad marriage) and still end up in the same place. Counselor, educator, and attorney David Bedrick says there is a better way, one guided by love and deeper spiritual meaning, rather than the unconscious bias of a culture prone to normalization. Using America’s most popular therapist as a barometer of our age, Bedrick shines a light on the path of loving kindness that helps us let go of the shame we carry and learn how to treasure those things we least accept about ourselves. Move past quick-fix, pop-culture answers to psychological wounds to deep, emotional healing for you, and all of us.
