THE ECSTASY OF SURRENDER: 12 Surprising Ways Letting Go Can Empower Your Life
New York Times bestselling author and UCLA psychiatrist, Judith Orloff, M.D. has created a results-oriented book that shows readers how to thrive in our modern, task-heavy, constantly-wired lives. She considers this her most important book for compelling reasons.
THE ECSTASY OF SURRENDER reveals everything you will ever need to know about when to let go versus when to assert control – the secret formula to vibrant health, longevity, wellness, healing, success, pleasure, and happiness. The powerful promise of this book, from succeeding in business to falling in love to accepting death, is letting yourself be catapulted beyond the ordinary to view all of existence in extraordinary terms.
In THE ECSTASY OF SURRENDER Judith has created 12 essential choices for a powerful, healthy, abundant, and fearless life. Each chapter guides readers through specific ways they can apply surrender to success, money and communication, relationships, love and sexuality, the divinity of the body, illness, pain, aging, death and beyond. Dr. Orloff teaches you how to shut off an overactive mind to achieve inner calm, and how to stop worrying and pushing too hard so you can feel more peace of mind.
Dr. Orloff’s message is that you can sabotage your health, success, and longevity by pushing too hard. Surrender is the antidote to stress in a world that relentlessly conspires to interrupt creative thought. Surrender boosts your brain’s endorphins–euphoric, opiate-like pain killers–and serotonin, a natural antidepressant that allows you to relax, have more fun, and succeed more wildly than ever before. Though surrender may seem counter-intuitive to making your goals happen, it can actually be the magical factor that facilitates this and relieves gridlock. Life becomes easier and more blissful when you can let go.
Through passionate examples from her own life and those of thousands of patients and seminar participants who she has taught the art of surrender, Judith suggests, instructs, guides, makes you laugh and cry, and then just let go! When you come to the end of THE ECSTASY OF SURRENDER you realize that you are free to be who you are–finally and truly–and you are happier and healthier for it! This book is a friend to everyone who wants to conquer stress, live longer and healthier, and a life-long resource to return to again and again.
