    Susan! This was compelling!! Anxious to read more, but, I am wondering if it’s on tape….listening was delightful.

    My anxiety is different from the one in the book. But the way to handle it seem to be the same. Thank you for sharing this.

        The program has been difficult, especially writing the story of our relationship. I cried and cried and cried. I’m glad you wrote about crying in your book. Usually after meditating I felt sad too. Today I wrote the last part of our relationship … About the braking up. These days have been very intense.
        Thank you for your wishes.

          Linda, this make so much sense. It can seem as if the tears will never stop…but they will. I admire your courage in completing this very, very difficult aspect of the program. I truly hope it will bring you all the healing you need. With love, Susan
