The body keeps the score - Bessel van der Kolk
"In order to change, people need to become aware of their sensations and the way that their bodies interact with the world around them. Physical self-awareness is the first step in releasing the tyranny of the past." -Bessel A. van der Kolk shares with us why and how.
Non-violent communication - Marshall B. Rosenberg
NVC fosters deep listening, respect, and empathy and engenders a mutual desire to give from the heart. Some people use NVC to respond compassionately to themselves, some to create greater depth in their personal relationships, and still others to build effective relationships at work or in the political arena.
Verslaafd aan liefde - Jan Geurtz
It shows that our quest for love and recognition stems from a fundamental self-rejection. We try to compensate for this through appreciation from others, and above all through a successful love affair. But that has the opposite effect: it actually reinforces that fundamental uncertainty and dependence. This creates a form of addiction to love and recognition, and to the safety of a relationship. As a result, most love relationships run aground after a while, or -perhaps worse- get bogged down in a sluggish togetherness without much room for growth and happiness.
