Drawing from her fascinating life experience and therapy practice, Farzaneh Guillebeaux offers an amazing blending of psychotherapy tools and spiritual teachings to help readers find joy and self-fulfillment, regardless of race, gender, or background. As a young Iranian student in the United States, Fafar was swept off her feet by an African-American in the 1960s, thrown into the belly of racism, and changed forever through the combined power of psychotherapy and spiritual transformation. She shares her journey here; throughout this book, Fafar expresses her love for the reader through her openness and authenticity, humor, and a personal narrative of her own struggles, pain, and inner process.
Here, Fafar weaves the forces of spirituality together with a wealth of invocations from Bahá'i writings, professional expertise grounded in years of experience as a therapist, and profound lived experience on her own journey to knowing and loving herself-and applies this knowledge to the personal issues that challenge us all. This book offers wise and tested practical strategies and deep insights, bathed in her love of humanity and belief in its inherent goodness.
The resulting tapestry is one which compels-and empowers-readers to embark on their journey to know and nurture their own self. The truths contained in this book are the truths that can set us all free.
