Robert Burney is an author, counselor, and Spiritual Teacher who has been referred to as "a metaphysical Stephen Hawking." His first book Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls has been called "one of the truly transformational works of our time." In this book about the Law of Attraction he shares his opinion that spiritual teachers, new age gurus, and New Thought churches are teaching the Law of Attraction in ways that do a disservice to - and can actually hurt - the people they are teaching.
As he states in this book: "I am publishing this book because I believe that the way the Law of Attraction is being taught by most people who are teaching it today is not ultimately Loving. I believe it is being taught in a way that makes many of the people hearing it feel ashamed; in a way that causes people to focus on reaching a destination at the expense of being present in the now; in a way that reinforces the delusion that there is something inherently wrong with being human, with human beings. It is also being taught by most spiritual teachers in a way that discounts and devalues emotions and emotional healing."
He also states, “I believe that Spirituality is all about relationships. One's relationship to self, to others, to the environment, to life in general. A Spiritual belief system is simply a container for holding all our other relationships. I believe that a lot of these New Age Spiritual Teachers do not have a large enough Spiritual container / paradigm - and as a result are teaching the Law of Attraction in ways that are not Loving.”

About the Author
Robert, whose work is firmly grounded on twelve step spiritual principles and emotional energy release / grief process therapy, learned in his own personal recovery that developing internal boundaries was the key to empowerment and freedom from the past. His unique approach and application of the concept of internal boundaries, coupled with a Loving spiritual belief system, make the work innovative and powerfully life changing. It does not matter how much Spiritual Truth, how many mystical experiences of oneness, how in tune with Love, you can feel in certain moments - if you cannot integrate it into your life in a way which changes your emotional experience of life on a moment to moment, day to day basis. You can go to therapy - or be in recovery - for many years, read all the Spiritual and self help books, go to workshops and seminars and lectures, compile encyclopedic intellectual knowledge of what healthy behavior is - and still be reacting to old wounds in relationships where your heart is involved. If you want to learn how to relax and enjoy life in the moment, while you are healing and learning to Love your self and be healthier in the relationship with people you love, you want to read his books.
