In this inspiring book, Muller reveals the resilience of the human spirit in the face of sorrow and teaches readers how to recognize and transform the damaging effects of their wounds and rediscover their natural vitality, creativity, and joy.

Regardless of the specific nature of their trauma, be it family violence, alcoholism, sexual abuse, illness, or loss, Muller's book has provided countless thousands a path for the awakening of the heart that is psychologically sound and reassuring, yet challenges us at the same time to believe in the possibility of real change.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
This book changed my life  Feb 3, 2008
I had the great good luck to attend a workshop with Wayne Muller based on this book when I was in the throes of a divorce that brought up painful issues from childhood. Wayne helped me to stop seeing myself as a victim of people who were themselves damaged, and instead to build an image of myself as a creative, spiritual, compassionate person worthy of being loved.

We attract to ourselves exactly what we think we deserve. As long as I thought of myself as a victim, I was one. When I changed this mental idea, my whole life changed for the better. I can't recommend it highly enough for those who feel held back by their past.

Wayne Muller is a psychologist who went back to school to become a minister because psychology didn't explain what he saw in many of the people he worked with. Time after time he watched people find the strength within themselves to rise above even the most horrible of circumstances. He finally realized he was witnessing grace in action; that there is some kind of force or ability in us that can overcome anything. This book is about how to allow that grace to work for you.
Help for growth beyond childhood hurts  Nov 19, 2006
I would describe this as a self-help/spiritual guidance book for people struggling in their personal/spiritual growth because of the wounds of their childhood. I think that it might help people to identify the ways they are getting caught on old pain and thought patterns, and free themselves a bit.

The book's perspective is arguably more psychological than spiritual, and it does not delve deeply into any particular spiritual tradition, nor is it for instance an exploration of the relationship between childhood pain and mystical experience. Mueller quotes more or less equally from a variety of different traditions, in a way that probably wouldn't be too offensive to any of them, unless the reader would be troubled by a quote from another religion or details of an eastern meditation practice.

The quality of the writing is 4 stars out of 5; read the book for the advice and perspective rather than the way the author expresses himself which is nothing special.
A helping hand  Mar 12, 2006
A beautiful book containing many simple yet profound insights. A very helpful tool for those exploring the within for the purpose of healing.
Legacy of the Heart  Feb 17, 2006
Just what I expected it to be. It's a practical application of spiritual principles. Very easy to follow and very poigniant.
Best book of it's kind!  Oct 9, 2005
This book helps readers to identify in what ways they may be hampered by their past and gives amazing practices to help overcome being stuck there. The author is compassionate but unerringly insightful about the defences we use to stop ourselves from incurring futher pain, yet he makes us want to move from that place by realizing how much we are cutting ourselves off from the joys of life.
Perfect for recognizing where we victimize ourselves and showing precisely how to stop the pattern. He does not repeat himself and never leaves the gentle tone he sets up in the beginning.
This book is a Bible!
