9780062511195: Stop Being Mean to Yourself: Story About Finding the True Meaning of Self-love

Beckoning readers toward a spiritual territory beyond even that of her revolutionary best-seller Codependent No More, Melody Beattie conducts us through teeming Casablanca, war-torn Algeria, and the caverns of Egypt's great pyramids as she embarks on a new kind of journey of the soul.

An enlightening blend of travel adventure and spiritual discovery, filled with new ideas for overcoming the pitfalls of guilt and self-doubt, Stop Being Mean to Yourself is a compassionate tour guide for the troubled and the heartsick, for those who seek a happier place in the world. A tale that is at once modern and timeless, rich with the promise of personal discovery, it is a book about learning the art of living and of loving others -- and ourselves. As full of suspense and excitement as it is of hope and encouragement, it is as rewarding for its pure reading pleasure as for the wisdom it imparts.

Product Description:

Stop Being Mean to Yourself takes us to Northern Africa on a modern-day odyssey: one as full of suspense and excitement as it is of hope and encouragement. In each place, and in each chapter, Beattie is our compassionare guide, discovering and sharing the universal lessons that the people and places revealed to her. In teeming Casablanca, in war-torn Algeria, in the deep caverns of Egypt's great pyramids, Beattie uncovers simple yet vital lessons for living in today's world: lessons about letting go of fear and trusting our own instincts, about setting boundaries and working with our own special power. A blend of travel adventure and guide to spiritual discovery, full of new ideas for overcoming the pitfalls of guilt and self-doubt, her story beautifully illustrates how you really can love your neighbor and yourself.

From the Author:

Why this book is different, yet the same....
I personally love this book. It challenged me on many levels, and it was written from a spirit of adventure, rather than pain. For readers expecting a didactic, spelled-out "how-to" format -- don't. After the initial burst of recovery from codpendency, the lessons came more subtly -- each one, like solving a mystery. That's how I wrote this book. It is multi-level, and intended to speak to you, hopefully, the same way your life does. You don't have to go to Algiers to have your adventure -- you're living it right now. Thanks. Melody
