Product Details


“David Richo helps normalize the fact that everyone has triggers—and they can be a gift. Triggers point directly to interrupted spiritual work that can free us from suffering. This book offers creative tools to step aside from reactivity and engage the curiosity that can lead to deeper exploration and truly liberating discoveries.”—Jan Chozen Bays, author of Mindfulness on the Go
“Triggers can be experienced in two ways—as negatives or positives, as automatic reactions or mindfully honed responses. The former is largely not in our conscious awareness, and the latter is what we hope to learn as we journey through life. Using science, philosophy, mindfulness practice, and his own life experiences, author and psychotherapist David Richo helps us develop the tools to do the hard work of examining ourselves, our relationships, and our pasts to heal our wounds and become the person we have the potential to be.”—Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness

“In this potent book, David Richo offers a detailed map of the terrain for healing our triggers. With characteristic clarity, warmth, and depth, he provides a range of tools, insights, and practical exercises to actually do what we’ve so often heard taught: to respond rather than react. If taken to heart, this book will help us reclaim our power, serve as a catalyst for transformation, and teach us all how to step more fully into caring for each other and our world.”—Oren Jay Sofer, author of Say What You Mean

“With pointed yet compassionate advice, Richo’s exploration of triggers will appeal to those interested in the psychological benefits of acknowledging and working to understand troubling experiences.”—Publishers Weekly

“Acknowledging that there are ‘no bulletproof vests for the psyche,’ Triggers is an empowering book that reframes triggers as guides into the psychological and spiritual work that needs to be done for deep healing to take place. What once provoked a cascade of damaging emotions becomes an invitation to learn, heal, and give and receive love.”—Foreword Reviews   

“Particularly beneficial for anyone suffering from past pain, as well as those seeking to be more proficient at owning their own behavior.”—Library Journal
