Publisher's Summary

Most of us relate to our emotions by either running from the difficult ones or clinging ot the pleasant ones. But accoring to empathic counselor and researcher Karla McLaren, all of our emotions are important messagers sent to us to bring clarity, keep us in integrity, and free us from suffering.

On Language of Emotions, she offers listeners a breakthrough guide toward a new and empowering relationship with our feeling states. This practical lexicon for a working spectrum of emotions explores the latest insights about emotion from psychology and neurology, how to use your emotions responsibly - instead of over-reacting to or repressing them - and emotions as the gateway to personal healing and fulfillment.

Outstanding - Refreshingly Useful

What did you love best about Language of Emotions?

Finally a useful resource for decoding emotions! No references to 'unconditional love' (which is so often misused to perpetuate victimization and can defeat any potential for advancement). Really tangible, practical information about recognizing what emotional responses represent and how to effectively work with them. Karla McLaren is motivationally comforting and deeply respectful of the human spirit.

Worth more than a few therapy sessions!

I tried to read the book and found it very dry and hard to plow through, but I knew others who'd read it and found the information as useful as it sounds in the publisher's own description. So I downloaded the Audible version despite reading that said it's not the same as the book . . . and that turned out to be a very good decision! This version was compelling, easier to absorb and remember, and very worthwhile. I have listened through once and will be listening at least one more time. I look forward to this book's healing influence on my life -- I feel I got a LOT for my 7 hours and 30 minutes.

Life Changing

I find myself having aha after aha resonating moments, sentence after sentence. I have replayed chapter after chapter...a wealth of understanding and knowledge.
Get it. read it. listen and then do it again and again.

Worth the money!

I am a therapist and psychiatrist in Boston. Once I listened to this I thought, "this is so good it's going to put me out of business!" I've recommended it to many of my clients, who have various ailments but all suffer from the epidemic of poor emotional health. These principles, especially when combined with Internal Family Systems, have improved my life and my craft. Thank you so much for your brilliant work, Karla. I am so grateful.

You can read all the books you want...

But, unless you understand your emotions, no amount of reading and retaining information will help you. Her amazing personal story and practical solutions to this problem are evident when you begin to see emotions for what they really are and use their potential for good.

A whole other level of mindfulness

As someone who feels intensely and struggles to explain or understand why I feel, this book was amazing for me. I loved that Karla was able to clearly explain the differences between each emotion, their nuances, as well as why they may be happening. It makes for fabulous ground work in dissecting your emotions for additional work on other emotional/mental issues such as attachment styles.

Language of emotions

I never realized there was a swarm of various emotions that could easily be identified and study for who they are individually; and then learn to accept them, and understand their meaning, and purpose in Life. It teaches you to recognize them when they present themselves to you, and allow you to be in control and not letting them control you. This was an excellent audiobook.

I Needed This

Thank you Karla. Not being able to process emotions and feeling like I needed to control everything around me just cost me my marriage of seven years But this book is the first step in my recovery from those bad habits and setting the stage for a successful future relationship.
