Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls is joyously inspirational Spiritual book that explores the subject of codependence not only on personal and interpersonal levels but also from a cosmic perspective. The author explains that codependency is an ego defense system adapted in early childhood – that we learn how to relate to self, life, and other people in early childhood from people who were wounded in their childhood. Here are several quotes from the book: “This dance of Codependence is a dance of dysfunctional relationships – of relationships that do not work to meet our needs. That does not mean just romantic relationships, or family relationships, or even human relationships in general. The fact that dysfunction exists in our romantic, family, and human relationships is a symptom of the dysfunction that exists in our relationship with life – with being human. It is a symptom of the dysfunction which exists in our relationships with ourselves as human beings.” “Codependence is an emotional and behavioral defense system which was adopted by our egos in order to meet our need to survive as a child. Because we had no tools for reprogramming our egos and healing our emotional wounds (culturally approved grieving, training and initiation rites, healthy role models, etc.), the effect is that as an adult we keep reacting to the programming of our childhood and do not get our needs met – our emotional, mental, Spiritual, or physical needs. Codependence allows us to survive physically but causes us to feel empty and dead inside. Codependence is a defense system that causes us to wound ourselves.” This book presents a set of beliefs about the meaning and purpose of life from a Cosmic Perspective that combines Twelve Step Recovery Principles, Ancient Metaphysical Truths, and Native American Spirituality with quantum physics and molecular biology. It explains why a New Age has dawned in human consciousness on planet Earth and explores subjects that include the Bible and Buddha, Jesus and Christ Consciousness. The author’s personal Spiritual beliefs – which embrace both Christ Consciousness and Goddess Energy – is that we are Spiritual Beings having a human experience that is unfolding perfectly from a Cosmic perspective. He considers spirituality to be a word that describes one’s relationship with life – and anyone, regardless of religious/spiritual belief or lack of it (who is not completely closed minded), can apply the approach he shares in his book to help them transform their experience of life into an easier, more Loving and enjoyable journey. This is a life-changing, life-affirming book.
