The Transformation: A Book Review and Giveaway

I loved Jame S. Gordon’s The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing after Trauma. I see great hope in the techniques he’s developed to help those who have experienced horrific life events. And there’s plenty here to help you process and recover from some of the lesser sadness and confusion of life too.

Here’s what the publisher has to say:

The Transformation represents the culmination of Dr. Gordon’s fifty years as a mind-body medicine pioneer and an advocate of integrative approaches to overcoming psychological trauma and stress.

Based on the basic understanding that trauma will come to all of us sooner or later, Dr. Gordon teaches readers that each of us has the capacity to heal ourselves. Outlining a proven, step-by-step method, he demonstrates how to reverse the damage caused by trauma and to restore hope.

Offering inspirational stories, eye-opening research, and innovative prescriptive support, the book makes accessible for the first time the methods that Dr. Gordon—with the help of his faculty of 160, and 6,000 trained clinicians, educators, and community leaders—has developed and used to relieve the suffering of hundreds of thousands of adults and children around the world.

  1. Part of the human experience is that we all eventually experience challenges, setbacks, or traumas. I love and thoroughly embrace the idea of an integrative approach to overcoming psychological trauma and stress. Taking responsibility for healthy change in our own life is empowering. I look forward to reading.
