PS: I got my copies of the new paperback book early. It is great! Especially good for people who prefer reading to listening to CDs. It is a wonderful compilation of both authors experience and knowledge. My recommendation for the book is just as high as for the CD set. They have non-judgemental and gentle ways of dealing with different types of pain. I am not dealing with a lot of pain myself, but I did one of the exercises when I was dealing with a very stressful situation and it grounded and calmed me right down. I'm giving one of the books to my sister who has diabetic neuropathy in her feet and hands. They have specific ideas for specific types of pain. If you are in pain and haven't been able to find anything to help, this may just be what you are looking for. There are so many ideas, that you are likely to find something that will work for you.
Besides the circle breathing, the "voo breathing" was the most useful. Those two exercises alone made this book and CD well worth "the price of admission." Those might not be the ones that work for you, but maybe you might also find a helpful exercise or information that makes a difference.
Charles L. Whitfield, MD, Atlanta, GA
The authors, pioneers in the field, do so by addressing something that's crucial to long-term recovery; i.e., the need to heal unresolved trauma within the body
They realize that everybody is unique and that no one approach can work for all listeners. Consequently, they present some 17 different practices that can be tried, including such things as exploring pain triggers, circular breathing, grounding and one my favorite, mindfulness-based pain relief.
I also liked how FREEDOM FROM PAIN dealt with the theory behind pain. Reading it gave me a greater understanding of the fact that pain is unavoidable; suffering is optional.
The narration by Levine and Phillips was OK. However, here is one instance that professional narration would have even made the book more valuable.
