Caution: Feeding Your Demons must be read with an open mind. In fact, unless you suspend the automatic linear logic of most Westerners, you will dismiss this book within the first few chapters. However, if you do you, will miss some important suggestions for ridding yourself of the heavy baggage that we all have pressing on our shoulders.

The premise comes from a female Buddhist teacher, which makes the book a worthy read by itself. The ideas promoted do make a lot of sense and in some ways resemble today’s ubiquitous therapy sessions, the difference being that you do the work yourself – well, mostly. The step that may give some people pause is when you allow yourself to embody your demon and move back and forth from two facing chairs as you alternate between yourself and your demon.

Once you get over the feeling of possibly developing Disassociative Identity Disorder and complete the exercise, you will find that this eleventh-century wisdom is a palatable alternative to paying through the teeth for a therapy session.

With an open heart and some practice, Feeding Your Demons may very well be just what the doctor ordered (without the astronomical bill).
