Publisher's Summary

Picture yourself trapped in a traffic jam feeling utterly calm. Imagine being unflappable and relaxed when your supervisor loses her temper. What if you were peaceful instead of anxious? What if your life were filled with nurturing relationships and a warm sense of belonging? This is what it feels like when you've achieved emotional freedom.

National best-selling author Dr. Judith Orloff invites you to take a remarkable journey, one that leads to happiness and serenity, and a place where you can gain mastery over the negativity that pervades daily life. No matter how stressed you currently feel, the time for positive change is now. You possess the ability to liberate yourself from depression, anger, and fear.

Emotional Freedom is a road map for those who are stressed out, discouraged, or overwhelmed, as well as for those who are in a good emotional place but want to feel even better. Complete emotional freedom is within your grasp.

Insightful book

I love the overall message of the book. I needed to hear this. I’m glad I listened to it, but by the end, I have to admit, I was feeling a bit of information overload. There is a lot of repetition in this book, so it isn’t always easy to stay engaged. I would suggest buying this book and listening to the chapters you most need to hear – whether you are dealing with depression or constant frustration or anxiety or whatever. Listen to what you really need to hear right now, and save the rest for a later time. Focus on applying that one chapter to your life. It’ll be easier to absorb the information that way.

The depression chapter

It was great . I thought she was Judith.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

That I am an empath , and not tooo sensitive. I will cherish that forever. I am wonderfully sensitive and there are ways to cherish and nurture that truth about myself.

Peaceful Delivery

The information and narrator were good for this type of book. Everything was presented in orderly fashion, easily understandable, and thorough. Worth the second listen to to absorb specific parts bookmarked.

not worth 2 credits

Thank God this was an audiobook. I would have never got through it if I had to read it. Very disappointed I used to 2 credits for this... only worth 1 in comparison to other works. There are nuggets of goodness but you have to wade through a lot of nothingness to get to something. I am sure the author knows her stuff but the reader is forced to wade through lots of none essential information to get to the point.

Very woo-woo as the author would say

I did not find this book helpful. In fact, I found listening to the audiobook version infuriating in an unreasoning, insurmountable way that I normally associate with rush hour traffic. I think it was the mystical language interspersed with pseudoscience jargon combined with vague and impractical advice. Also, the author seemed to spend an inordinate amount of the book explaining what she was going to show you later in the book in grand promises that never seemed to quite pan out. Overall just not my cup of tea.

Great read!

Excellent read! Very helpful and a pleasure to listen to as well. Highly recommended for people looking to understand why they feel react and do the things they do.

Very Insightful

No book ever has it 100% but this book certainly is extremely helpful. I find it very good that the author uses herself as an example so many times, proving to me that she is not just saying things, she actually relates. Her stance on spirituality seems very open and I like that, to me, this is as it should be. With an open mind anyone can find help in this book.

Platitudes

Filled with spiritual niceties and cliches, I unfortunately found very little value for myself in this book.
