This thoughtful and heartfelt book develops two main themes: the healing power of a compassionate understanding towards ourselves and others, and the ways boundaries are set within and around various areas of our lives.

It examines how we live these boundaries, how they impact us, and what it takes to live these with deeper satisfaction. This book also addresses shame and rage; the impact of trauma; the power of parental messages, spoken and unspoken; and transgenerational burdens. A theoretical chapter summarizes the author's integrative, phenomenological approach: it brings the insights of a body-focused trauma therapy and a systemic lens to an overarching existential perspective. Numerous vignettes, case studies, and client-therapist dialogues illustrate reflections on life, philosophy, and therapeutic modalities and practice.

This book will be a thought-provoking listen for trainee and practicing counselors and psychotherapists, or anyone looking for self-reflection on their own practices, life, and ultimately, what it means to be human.
