Banyen's Description: 

Here, the author of The Seat of the Soul and Soul Stories joins with his partner Linda Francis to explore the pivotal importance of emotional awareness in cultivating authentic power in our daily lives.

A central practice in this book is a scan of what you are experiencing in your body. It is easy to understand how to do this and why it is important. However, to actually observe your emotions moment by moment will take commitment and effort on your part, no matter how experienced you are with practices.

Although developing emotional awareness is challenging and difficult because it requires becoming aware of our buried emotional pain, it is also deeply rewarding. The Heart of the Soul shows us how to free ourselves from our compulsions, fixations, obsessions, and addictions—such as anger, workaholism, perfectionism, pleasing others, obsessive eating, alcohol and drug abuse, and sexual addiction—that prevent us from living as fulfilling and meaningful a life as we can. It also provides the reader with the necessary tools to replace the desire to avoid painful emotions with the desire to explore every aspect of consciousness, and to cultivate the parts of ourselves that contribute the most to Life.

The authors do not discount the violence and destruction in our world, but they recognize a new, emerging consciousness that has the power to transform it. Filled with helpful tools, empowering and informing practices, and useful drawings, The Heart of the Soul also provides useful insights into boredom, vacating, entitlement, savior searching, power struggles, judging, intimacy, and “emotions, power, and the present moment.”

Lack of self-worth is the fundamental source of all emotional pain. It is the root of the plant. Anger and depression are flowers. Pain at the world not being the way that you want it forms the branches. Terror at being alive is the trunk. Lack of self-worth is the root...

Reaching outward to fill this inner hole, or lack of self-worth, is the pursuit of external power—the ability to manipulate and control. The pursuit of external power has been the way that humankind has evolved since its origins. Now that is changing. The new evolutionary pathway of humankind is looking inward, finding the sources of its insecurities, and healing them. That is the pursuit of authentic power—the alignment of the personality with the soul.
