Be prepared for deep personal growth aided by beautiful metaphors.
Shaeri Richards, the author of Dancing with Your Dragon, The Art of Loving Your Unlovable Self, has taken the complex process of personal transformation and simplified it by using beautiful language, metaphors and stories. I have devoured many personal transformation books, but I have never had a deep experience while doing it. Shaeri’s use of language intensifies the reading experience and aids the journey of self-awareness. The questions inserted throughout the book, register deep within your soul and you just have to pause and ponder. Lots of “ahh” moments. This book is not a lecture from an expert. Instead, it’s a shared journey of discovery with the author. Her personal stories, to illustrate the application of her ideas, make the lessons dance off the page. The exercises and practices are simple and useful and most important, effective. Each exercise inches you closer to loving yourself so you no longer sabotage your human journey. I am a huge fan of this book and encourage everyone reading this review to devour the pages and learn to Dance with Your Dragon.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Interesting and informational!
The reader will find constructive information for repairing old traumas, healing old wounds, developing self respect, and not only reclaiming yourself — but maintaining yourself! There is a lot of information packed into this one book! One of my favorite quotes from Dancing With Your Dragon came early on as Shaeri Richards writes, “Intolerance is like picking at a pimple. We want the thing to go away, but picking only creates scars.”Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Hard to put Down. You'll Read it Again and Again.
Reading Dancing with Your Dragon is like having a lively, engaging conversation with a good friend about how to integrate one's spiritual life with their physical life. Shaeri Richards lovingly shares precious insights, in understandable terms, that she has garnered from her many teachers. She explains how she used the teachings to heal herself, and easily lights the way for the reader to do the same. Dancing with your Dragon: The Art of Loving your Unlovable Self is a must read for anyone aspiring to live harmoniously and passionately with themselves and the rest of the world. You'll read it again and again because of the pleasure it brings, like a favorite song that never gets old. And, in the process, you'll learn how your earthly and divine lives can "dance" gracefully together; A Dancing with the Stars title pales in comparison to the rewards of dancing well with your dragon.Was this review helpful?
