DIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Ira Israel to the store to discuss and sign his new book, How to Survive Your Childhood Now That You're an Adult: A Path to Authenticity and Awakening on Tuesday, November 14th at 6:30 pm. This will be his publication party and all are welcome and encouraged to attend.
As children, we learned to get approval by creating facades to help us get our emotional and psychological needs met, but we also rebelled against authority as a way of individuating. As adults, these conflicting desires leave many of us feeling anxious or depressed because our authentic selves are buried deep beneath glitzy or rebellious exteriors or some combination thereof. In this provocative book, eclectic teacher and therapist Ira Israel offers a powerful, comprehensive, step-by-step path to recognizing the ways of being that we created as children and transcending them with compassion and acceptance. By doing so, we discover our true callings and cultivate the authentic love we were born deserving.
