Feeding Your Demons: Ancient Wisdom for Resolving Inner Conflict by Tsultrim Allione

Tsultrim Allione brings an eleventh-century Tibetan woman's practice to the West for the first time with FEEDING YOUR DEMONS, an accessible and effective approach for dealing with negative emotions, fears, illness, and self-defeating patterns. Allione-one of only a few female Buddhist leaders in this country and comparable in American religious life to Pema Chodron-bridges this ancient Eastern practice with today's Western psyche. She explains that if we fight our demons, they only grow stronger. But if we feed them, nurture them, we can free ourselves from the battle. Through the clearly articulated practice outlined in FEEDING YOUR DEMONS, we can learn to overcome any obstacle and achieve freedom and inner peace.

This book is a wonderful read and was very helpful and practical. I found the method outlined in this book to be very transformative, lucid and accessible. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in shedding old patterns and becoming happier in general (and who isn't!).

In her book, Feeding Your Demons,with much authority and personal experience, Tsultrim Allione, shares ancient wisdom from the Buddhists. Allione defines demons not as a Gargoyle type spirit but as an obstacle or hindrance that holds us back from living a full life. Depression, anxiety, illnesses are a few of the obstacles she calls demons. She adapts Buddhist methods into a simple 5-step process. 1. Find the demon. 2. Personify the demon and ask what it needs. 3. Imagine yourself as the demon. 4. Feed the demon and meet the ally. 5. Rest in awareness. I understand the principles behind the 5-step concept even if I do not agree with it. My liberation comes from above. However, Allione takes a mysterious subject and simplifies it. All in all, Feeding Your Demons is an unique concept. Its basis is ancient, but practiced by many New Agers.

Feeding Your Demons offers a unique approach for coping with depression, anxiety, and chronic illness. Tsultrim Allione has translated and simplified ancient wisdom of the Buddhist. She breaks the process into 5 steps. A lot of people will grasp at anything. Personally, I think the concept is ludicrous. I found the book to have anti-America overtones. I will give the author credit for having simplified the concept and for having excellent writing skills.
