  1. The “Ouch” chapter is such an important description of how pain and trauma influence our lives in profound and subtle ways. Thank you Helen.


  2. As a therapist, I can see myself recommending this book to clients. The text is insightful and the exercises are very useful in clearing old traumas.


  3. I loved reading about the Jewish version of good and bad urges. I’ve read about “shadows” but this is much more fun and easy to relate to. I think I will come up with names for mine and have conversations – maybe Angelique for yetzer hatov and Stella for yetzer hara.
