How do you look within when an eating disorder has filled you up with pain? Desperately Seeking Self; Second Edition speaks directly to this need. Its message is simple, gentle and accessible, resonating especially with a new generation of millennial readers who are hungry for meaningful spiritual connections.
This updated edition preserves its “conversational” approach and composite client profile (a woman with bulimia). To frame the ongoing significance of the book today, this conversation answers such basic human questions as: Why do I have this illness? Who am I to think that I deserve better? How will my life be different when I awaken to a deeper level? What exactly is a transformation?
