The Kind Self-Healing Book
Raise Yourself Up with Curiosity and Compassion
By Amy Eden
If you grew up within a chaotic family environment caused by chronic inconsistency, stress, and emotional or physical abandonment or abuse — whether due to addictions, political unrest, war, or a parent’s mental health issues — The Kind Self-Healing Book is for you. If you are prone to anxiety, depression, self-doubt, people-pleasing, or decision-making influenced by fear, or if you want to free yourself of the coping behaviors that worked in a disordered childhood but don’t serve you in adulthood, The Kind Self-Healing Book is for you. (From the back cover.)

“The Kind Self-Healing Book packages together all of the elements that “self-help” books don’t seem to quite get at: insight into the roots of problems I’ve been struggling with for years (relationship sabotage, anyone?) prompts for journaling, and so much more. I particularly value the section on “needs versus wants” and revisit it when I feel like I need clarity in my life. As a stoic Yankee, the “feelings and feeling them” chapter required me to grit my teeth and finally learn how to open my heart to a range of feelings that I am accustomed to tamping down. The design is awesome. Its hand-drawn illustrations and an inviting script that makes me feel like the book was handmade for me. One of the least intimidating and most thoughtful books on navigating difficult emotions I’ve come across.” — Sue Gately, Cambridge, MA
“The Kind Self-Healing Book is practical and never preachy. Amy Eden delivers well-researched, sharply written, and open and honest exercises and advice that show us how we can empower ourselves to take an orderly and methodical approach to creating our own path to a happier, healthier state of mind.” — Ryan R., North Carolina
“At a time in my life when I needed some guidance and direction in finding the path to becoming a better man, husband and father this book quite literally fell in my lap. I didn’t have any expectations of the book when I first opened it but from the first sentence it resonated with me and spoke to all the things that I needed. If the Universe is going to recommend The Kind Self-Healing Book then I’m going to read it. Thank you Amy Eden!” — Chad S., Petaluma, CA
