New York (PRWEB) August 14, 2013
In his 2013 book “The Breakthrough: Breaking the Spells of Painful Emotions and Finding the Calm in the Present Moment How to Build a New Outlook on Life” (published by iUniverse), Dr. Fredric C. Hartman presents a powerful guide in navigating the process of change. “The Breakthrough” will be featured at the 2013 Frankfurt Book Fair, October 9-13, 2013.
Kirkus Reviews calls “The Breakthrough” a “rarity among self-help books that imparts pablum-free concepts and methods with the power to change mindsets and lives.”
In “The Breakthrough,” Hartman paints a compelling picture of emotional pain and its context within the human mind. Set in the dramatic backdrop of a therapy session as a stage play, featuring Hartman as the psychologist and Human Consciousness itself as “the patient,” this is ultimately a practical guide for anyone locked within the grip of troubling memories or painful feelings.
Hartman explains in the simplest terms how to decipher the disguised meaning of painful emotions as they flare up. He sees these painful emotions as spells to be broken and has devised a way to work strength into consciousness to break these spells.
“The overall theme of the book,” states Hartman, “is learning how to build a pause and appreciate the beauty and mysterious nature of our minds and the way the simple flaring of our painful emotions, which are like little spells cast over us, each containing the dramatic story of our life long yearning to be loved and our disappointment, and learning an amazingly simple way to decipher and decode our painful emotions – as they’re flaring – so we can break their grip and experience with a new calm the richness of the present moment.”
An excerpt from the book’s introduction:
“Working on this book felt like I was preparing a gift. It contains the essence of the interaction—a kind of pheromone exchange that occurs – in a place called an office (that looks more like a living room) between someone who wants so much to give help and someone who wants so much to receive it. And most urgently of all, for these times we live in, I wanted to set down in words the simple chant of ideas that can ignite the wonder in us. And from the wonder, inspiration. And from the inspiration, the surging will to break the relentless grip of pain from the past and move more freely into the teeming and sacred immensity of the present moment – the only moment we ever really have in life.”
