I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand why they act the way they do or say the things they say. Mark Epstein has written a book that above all others makes it ok to be me. I never understood why when I first attempted meditation I just cried. Now I know. I also have a deeper understanding of the purpose and importance of meditation. Compassion and acceptance take on all new meaning after reading this book, not just for myself, but for everyone. I cried through the last chapters as Epstein showed me the way out of suffering by explaining how to open to past trauma so that it doesn’t keep running my life. This book is not just for Buddhists. I wish that “The Trauma of Everyday Life” was on the bedside table of all new mothers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
