Présentation de l'éditeur

"Everyone is compulsive to some degree. People may worry too much, work too hard, or overindulge in food or alcohol or drug use. Once a compulsion is admitted, the usual option is to try to control the behavior. But this effort typically ends with the problem returning, or a new one taking its place. In this book based on three decades of research and teaching, Mary O'Malley has crafted a new approach, with simple exercises and techniques and an inspiring tone. People are compulsive for a reason, she says, and by observing the things they are compulsive about and engaging those compulsions, readers can begin to understand them and change their actions around them. The book's exercises help readers in the engagement process by teaching them to ask the right questions and shows why lasting healing comes from being curious rather than controlling, and self-acceptance comes through forgiveness, not shame. "

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best I've found 20 mars 2005

This is the best book on the topic of compulsions that I have ever seen. What impressed me the most were some simple and quick to do exercises that, simply put, have worked every time I've taken the 30 seconds or so to do them. Frankly I'm amazed at the power of this book.

I met the author briefly after a lecture she gave, and I give her an even higher recommendation than the book. She's one of the real ones.

We all engage in compulsive behaviors and have compulsive tendencies, whether we are aware of them or not. This amazing book teaches us that compulsions are not simply negative impulses to be controlled. In fact, they are our allies and protectors, helping us cope with life. Mary O'Malley helps us to acknowledge these allies, and to meet them with awareness, love, and acceptance. The concept that we treat ourselves unkindly by trying to control compulsions, and that the act of controlling actually hides the wisdom that compulsions impart, was striking to me. It is in meeting compulsions with awareness, curiosity and acceptance that we open up to what they have to teach us; and in this opening, they reveal to us our deepest needs. With down-to-earth examples, Mary shows us how to recognize and learn from our compulsions, and how to begin meeting our needs at the soul-level. As important as this book is for the individual, its message also applies to society as a whole. What would the world be like if we were able to recognize and learn from our common compulsions, and were able, at last to begin meeting our deepest needs as families, as neighborhoods, as cultures, as countries, as earth-partners? I am thankful for Mary's wisdom, and I hope to see more books from her in the future

Mary O'Malley shares her transformation with us and the structures she created to be present in her life. The presence to her feelings about herself, her choices and her needs made a difference for her and it made a difference for me too. Mary is dedicated to people's transformation, is a generous and loving person and I'm grateful for her commitment. This book, when empowered, is fantastic. Do the practices, experiment and discover.

I weighed 189 pounds when I read the book. From reading the book, I was able to generate awareness around my choices, my needs and most importantly the space to create an ideal relationship to food and to my body.

The weight just fell off. My relationship to my body was that it was an extraordinary gift and food was the fuel and the way to honor this machine.

Changing how I fed myself or kept myself fit never felt like work or willpower, thanks to Mary. Granting myself and others forgiveness was a product of this work that went well beyond losing weight. It affects every part of my life.

If you want to find a compassionate and insightful way of reconnecting and trusting yourself, read this book and take it to heart! Mary O'Malley's invites us to recognize compulsions for what they are: a survival system asking us to pay attention to the here and now.

I invite you to read it, so you too can begin to cultivate the healing power of attentive curiosity!

This book was recommended to me by a therapist who deals specifically with eating disorders. I started reading the book and immediately became engrossed. O'Malley really does take a revolutionary approach to compulsive behavior by asking us to see our compulsions as friends rather than enemies. After a lifetime of battling my compulsions and hating their control over my life, I am slowly learning to listen to what they are trying to say. Like young children, our compulsions are desperate for our attention.

While I don't really relate to O'Malley's humanistic perspective, I was still able to apply her ideas within the framework of my own spiritual beliefs. No matter what your "world view", I think this book has a great deal to offer those of us who are tired of fighting and losing the battle of our compulsions.
