Drawing on her own experiences with abuse and addiction, Valerie Mason-John presents a well-grounded series of meditations that transform anger, hatred and fear to heal emotional trauma.
After years of abuse and struggles with addiction, Valerie Mason-John was mired in the toxic emotions of anger, resentment and fear. But through meditation and willingness to forge a new path, she learned how to disarm such toxins and find peace.
In Detox Your Heart Mason-John helps us recognize our emotions, good and bad, and to develop the self-care to heal ourselves. Chapters that explore and clearly define negative emotions are paired with chapters on how to transform them. Meditation exercises based on the Buddhist principles of mindfulness, loving-kindness and compassion provide tools to help us heal our own hurts and to close the gap that toxic emotions create between heart and mind.
