This is one of the most important books I've read on the topic of personal growth. I've read the book multiple times and bought the CD to give to a friend who is more of an auditory processor.

I really loved this program! Raphael teaches the importance of really feeling your emotions, even the "bad" ones. This is something that I have recently discovered after years of pushing everything away. When we block out the painfull emotions, the pleasant ones are also prevented from reaching us. Really feeling negative emotions actually makes them go away, instead of lingering.
I would recommend this, I enjoyed his sense of humor and personal examples.

I love The One Thing Holding You Back by Raphael Cushnir, and I've recommended it and given it to several people. In these days of fear, depression and suppressed emotions, I think his message is universal

I absolutely love this set! It is accessible, practical, and transformative in the best sense of the word. It will help you tap into your natural wisdom and go with the flow better, live with more clarity, and less holding back....it's the best thing I have listened to in a really long time!

I've listened to this audiobook once, and am now on my second time. It's excellent - well thought out, intelligent, and well structured. It has really useful information and exercises, and I'd recommend it to anyone who had an interest in getting more 'in touch' with their feelings.

The only thing I would have liked more of, is actual guided meditations or exercises. There are a few, but I would have liked a few guided exercises towards the end to help tie all the information together and give me a daily meditation/exercise I could do to help develop the ideas outlined in the CD.

But, overall - excellent, and great value too!

Mr. Cushnir has an unusual and welcome take on emotions. I like his information, his voice and pace.

Some very good stuff here. Some of the advice is simplistic, however.

Rating based on his teachings do not resonate for me, I did not finish the audio book. I absolutely LOVE Karla McLaren's Language of Emotions and would suggest the listener compare their styles to see which is your teacher on this most important aspect of our self.
Because I didn't know how to listen to or use my emotions, they took me for a ride on the low road of suffering. Karla's teaching was the key that unlocked a treasure chest of knowledge and tools that allow me to use my emotions as guidance and protection in my life. They are our body's wisdom communicating with us all the time if only we listen and know how to work with them. Karla will teach you this.

I was going to send back this set as the first one skips a great deal. I listened to it in my car and it skips then also. I also am not "in tune" with the authors voice; just a personal thing I am sure, but it is not conducive to listening and staying focused--for me, otherwise I would ask you to just replace the set. I would prefer to get my money back. I would prefer not to rate it, because all in all I think the content is good--or what I heard of it.
