Spiritual Bypassing: When Spirituality Disconnects Us from What Really Matters
by Robert Augustus Masters, PhD
This book explores the easy tendency to use spiritual beliefs and practices to avoid the work of dealing with our painful feelings, unresolved wounds and developmental needs. It's a must-read for anyone who wants to look inward but isn’t sure where to start. The chapters are brief and beautifully written, covering terrain from the wisdom of anger, bringing shame out of its shadow and how we - at some point - need to take things personally.
