Great book. So helpful for people with PTSD preceeding chronic pain. (Very common.)

I've only been working with this program for 5 days and I already feel a noticeable difference in my tension and pain levels. It's amazing. The exercises are so simple you wouldn't expect them to make much of difference, but they do!

My biggest criticism is that the audio part is not as well done as it could be. The instructions are not always given slowly enough for following along. Also, the exercises that should be in audio format sometimes aren't, and vice versa. Lovingkindness really should be an audio, because of all the steps and affirmations you need to remember, and it's not. Yet instructions in journaling are unnecessarily given in audio. Minor quibbles, though. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone suffering from chronic pain.
