Overview

Healing through the Dark Emotions: The Wisdom of Grief, Fear, and Despair by Miriam Greenspan

"We are all touched at some point by the dark emotions of grief, fear, or despair. In an age of global threat, these emotions have become widespread and overwhelming. While conventional wisdom warns us of the harmful effects of "negative" emotions, this revolutionary book offers a more hopeful view: there is a redemptive power in our worst feelings. Seasoned psychotherapist Miriam Greenspan argues that it's the avoidance and denial of the dark emotions that results in the escalating psychological disorders of our time: depression, anxiety, addiction, psychic numbing, and irrational violence. And she shows us how to trust the wisdom of the dark emotions to guide, heal, and transform our lives and our world.

The author comes through as a most compassionate person who has herself had all the dark experiences one can imagine. For anyone reading this review in time, she is giving a lecture on this theme at the NY Jung Society in early November 2012. Check out their website.
