Beyond Resistance Is a Book I Can Warmly Recommend

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Beyond Resistance: Coping with the Stress of the Trump Era by Kathy Hertz and Donna Lipman. As I wrote in my review on the Amazon website: "I've got to say this is a truly amazing book. I never thought of relating shadow work to politics, but this really works. Even though Trump often acts as though the presidency was just some reality tv, you can actually get clues as to how this frustration can bring about GROWTH in our own lives. You NEED this book if you have also suffered from PESD - Post Election Stress Disorder."

It is important to recognize the type of feelings that the actions of the sitting President has on those of us who actually CARE about making a positive impact through politics. Many just leave it at hateful rebuttals, and that won't help anyway. If you decide to play the same dirty game that Trump does, you are reducing yourself, and come even more out of your own integrity...

You need to read this book if you want to keep your mental health in a time of crisis. You will become a better tool for resistance and making a positive difference that can last long after Donald Trump is forgotten when you read this book.

I warmly recommend it, and wish you all a happy weekend. :-)
