I have been working very hard on my book. Some of you know I have been working on this in some way, shape, or form for many many years. Now that I have created more time in my life I am full steam ahead. I want very much to provide a book that helps people really identify shame, challenge it, and have tools to move out of the shame and into peace. So, what I am working on is the form the book will take. I have several ideas and will list them here:
1. A day by day for healing. I have the idea of creating a spiral of topics. Each month I will spiral the same topics, but take them deeper and deeper each month. By the end of the year there will be 365 very clear thoughts, and exercise to accompany them.
2. A chapter book that takes each of the components of healing shame and works within a more traditional chapter book.
3. A “course” in healing shame. It would be somewhat like a workbook.
4. A day by day in a “course” format. It may not be 365 of them.
My passion is to have people truly understand shame and how it is built on a platform of false beliefs that cause great pain and distress. It is in the fabric of our culture and family systems. We need to challenge it at its very roots to build a different paradigm in which to live. I believe it is necessary in order for us to have the “peace” in our world that people say they want.
So, if you have any comments or feedback or preferences for the format of the book, I would love to hear them.
