Praise

“With a rare authenticity, Ralph De La Rosa seamlessly blends trauma theory and neuroscience into the framework of Buddhism. Reading this work will be deeply healing for so many people. If you have ever felt a little broken, pick up this book—it’s the voice we all need to hear.”—Lodro Rinzler, author of The Buddha Walks into a Bar

“Smart and sure to benefit many. Ralph De La Rosa’s book lovingly reframes the parts of us we’d rather avoid, especially our busy and anxious minds, as energies calling us toward a deeper awareness. A very useful contribution to the conversation between Buddhist psychology and Western psychology.”—Ethan Nichtern, author of The Road Home

“Filled with humility and wit, curiosity and hope, this book offers those struggling against the currents of their own torment a path of least resistance back to the safe harbor of self-understanding and self-love.”—Dr. Miles Neale, author of Gradual Awakening

“Newcomers and readers familiar with meditation alike will enjoy De La Rosa’s compassionate perspective on the intersection of Buddhist practice and psychotherapy.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) 

“Everyone knows we should be meditating, but what if your thoughts just won’t shut up? Ralph De La Rosa draws on Buddhism, neuroscience and psychology to posit that instead of growing increasingly frustrated with these intrusive thoughts, we should accept them as a part of ourselves and use them as a tool to understand ourselves better.”—BookPage
