Banyen's Description: 

Most of us relate to our emotions by either running from the difficult ones or clinging to the pleasant ones. Karla McLaren suggests a radical new perspective: that all of our emotions are equally important messengers, ready to assist us in acting with full awareness and integrity. With The Language of Emotions, this empathic counselor and researcher gives us a breakthrough guide toward a new and empowering relationship with our feeling states. This practical lexicon for working with a full spectrum of emotions explores:

ª  The latest insights about emotion from psychology and neurology and how to apply them in real life

ª  Discovering your “internal compass” to utilize your emotions responsibly—instead of over-reacting to or repressing them

ª  Emotions as the gateway to personal healing and fulfillment.

When we learn to speak their language, every emotion becomes a powerhouse of energy and information that reveals the perfect solution to the situation in which it arose. For anyone seeking a wiser approach to their emotions, here is a much needed resource for self-understanding and inner freedom.

If you can learn to focus yourself and work honorably with the incredible energies inside each of your feeling states, you can become intimately connected to the center of your soul, you can listen to the deepest parts of yourself, and you can heal your most profound wounds. If you can learn to treat your emotions as tools of your deepest awareness, you will be able to move forward as a whole and utterly functional person.

McLaren writes firsthand of the difficulties of the empathic journey; explores the origins of modern confusion about the emotions; and offers several chapters (“Restoring the Flow”) on bringing water into balance with earth, air, and fire, helping your mind make sense, making room for your central self, the role of trauma in soul making and culture building, and the meditative process. She includes many practical exercises for tapping the wisdom in our feelings.

In a second section, “Moving Deeper,” she offers counsel on awakening to our emotions as well as specific chapters on working with anger, hatred, guilt and shame, sadness, grief, depression, happiness, fear, panic and terror, jealousy and envy, and suicidal urges. Emotional Genius helps us look at entrenched patterns of thinking, behaving, and feeling in ways that are profoundly freeing.

This is a revised and updated edition previously released in 2001 as Emotional Genius: Discovering the Deepest Language of the Soul.

Also by Karla McLaren is Energetic Boundaries (6 CDs).
