Essential Practices for Lasting Freedom from Depression

The true source of healing from depression comes from within—not from doctors or medications. Yet when depression drains away our vitality and will, how can we find the energy to help ourselves? With Freedom from Depression, Dr. James S. Gordon reveals a new and empowering approach for dealing with this misunderstood condition—a way out of the darkness that helps you restore balance and joy to your life.

Proven Techniques for Navigating Our Way to Wholeness

Through both his personal experience and 40 years of research, Dr. Gordon knows just how serious depression can be. Dr. Gordon challenges the common medical model of depression as a strictly physical disease that is best treated with drugs—instead, he sees it as a wake-up call that our lives are out of balance. Drawing from treatments he and his colleagues have used successfully in places like Kosovo, Gaza, Haiti, and post-Katrina New Orleans, as well as experiences with patients in his US practice, he has created a set of simple and elegant tools for engaging more deeply with our lives instead of withdrawing. Here he offers practical training for using meditation, diet, guided imagery, movement, and more to help us deal directly with our own unique circumstances around depression.

The path to freedom from depression is realistic, hopeful, well-traveled—and filled with unexpected rewards. As Dr. Gordon has seen time and again, we can emerge from the darkness with a deeper appreciation of life's richness and our purpose in the world. With Freedom from Depression, he offers a bold new way to find true healing from this condition—to turn our fears into teachers, renew our body and mind, and reclaim our ability to take joy in life.

Review for Freedom from Depression Review by Lamees M
Rating

I am listening to the podcast with this doctor and what he is explaining all makes sense to me. I like his thinking about depression and his explanation. I have two sisters who went through mental issues and I believe that most of it, there are reasons for it but we easily resort for pills. He is not advocating that but rather looking in and doing the work...using the pills if need be but not depending on them. I agree totally with the way he thinks!!

Good for you Dr. Gordon!!

In my previous review I mentioned I would rate this course with a half star, but I stated this after giving my other suggestions. As a result, it appears that am giving my suggestions a half star. I was not referring to my other suggestions which I would rate both of these with 5 stars.

I just ordered this product a few days ago and must say that I was very unimpressed by the content. If you are looking for a very basic overview of some of the recent treatments for depression I would recommend it; however, if you are looking for a more in-depth analysis and helpful information/techniques on how to deal with depression I would not recommend this course (and you, like me, may be very disappointed). I found the overall approach to lack depth in each area covered and also found that the material was too simplistic and I wanted him to delve deeper into each area. At times I felt as if I was in a kindergarten class and this may be due to the simplicity and his style, dumbed-down content and his style of wanting to be your friend. I have dealt with depression for many years due to extensive physical and psychological abuse as an infant/child and as a result have done extensive research to help me discover a way to deal with this illness other than SSRI medications. If you are searching for other materials I would definitely recommend The Mindful Way Through Depression and also the Guided Mindfulness Series 1 by Jon Kabat-Zinn. I would rate it a half star.

I ordered this download and after listening to it was extremely unimpressed with the overall content and delivery style and Sounds True was so very kind in giving me a full refund.

an exceptional listen by someone who is expert at what he is speaking about. My only criticism, is that I wish that woman would not keep talking at every interval, saying 'this is a sounds true' production etc etc. I am sick of her interjections, and dont need to be told all the time that I am listening to sounds true.

This is one of the best programs you have ever published. As an RN in California, I wish it were on your CE-credits list. It would certainly fit the bill. He is brilliant and effective. I would recommend it highly to anyone.
