Each of us can have a toolkit for dealing with our emotions and with trauma. There is great value in Karla McLaren's work toward this end.

I was fascinated by the interview with Karla...so much so that I ordered two of her books. Unfortunately, I feel that Karla restates her premise on Empathy and emotion repeatedly without actually giving me the substance. Because I am empathic, I am able to intuit what she means...but that was not my intention when ordering her books. I was hoping for a clear treatise on empathy and emotion from a grounded perspective to add to my own experience and education. She has a vast and deep personal understanding of her subject but her writing lacks the concise clarity I was looking for. Both books are still by my bed and neither has been read through...her language apparently is not mine. Very disappointing.
I was also struck by her about face on her healing career. Science goes a long way in explaining much that could be termed "psychic"
...but science has not yet explained, nor did Karla explain, how a healer is able to impact a state of body, mind or soul. Empathy is not the action that clears, aligns or restructures. Empathy "reads" the situation and sometimes offers a potential solution to that situation but empathy does not actively change the situation. The "placebo" effect might address a small percentage of healing responses and simple discussion and/or acknowledgement of certain stressors might address another percentage of healing responses...how does one explain away the rest? Is there even a need for an explanation?
My empathic hunch would be that Karla is in the process of embracing a disowned self...
a scientific academic disowned self. Sadly unnecessary to disown her empathic healer self in order to embrace her scientific academic self. Why not both/and where the sum is greater than the parts?
