Wow

Having read some reviews of the audio version of this book that were displeased with the pace/tone of delivery, I decided to buy the paperback version, and I am so glad I did.

Talk about a nuanced, integrated, compassionate expose on the world of emotions, the instability that unresolved trauma creates, and the whole-person approach needed to not just 'bounce back' but actually come through our nightmarish experiences as more fully initiated human beings. I actually found it to be a work of emotional genius, in the truest sense of the word. I needed to be able to flip between chapters, and to let sentences sink in, one at a time. I felt like Karla was, yes, literally putting language to the world of emotions. A world that, to me at least, is both terrifying terrain and healing water on this un-mapped journey of being a sensitive, empathic being in this world that needs so much healing.

One of Soundstrue's best offerings!

I have listened to many audiobook and speakers on emotions and most have major faults in logic or assumptions which are tied so heavily to specific philosophies or religions. This is a balanced, informed, and most importantly, practical and useful, discussion on recognizing emotions and both the virtues and potential pitfalls of them.

Review for The Language of Emotions

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…
