Some feedback about The Dance of Wounded Souls: "I just read your wonderful book, thank you for writing it. I have been a spiritual teacher since childhood, however, your book let me organize my thoughts a new way, a new perspective. I now have a much deeper understanding and am still learning from it. Dance, is one of the truly transformational works of our time." "When I found your book, I found myself." "I am a 52 year old psychotherapist and have struggled with codependency all my life. Up until tonight I have been disappointed in the literature and treatment of codependency. Your work is brilliant! I can't find words to express my appreciation with the depth I am feeling." "I finished your book, you are a rock star. Already had a friend order it. She wanted to borrow mine and I told her I'd sooner give her my hand." "I truly believe that I have made more progress on a personal level in the few weeks I have had Robert's book than in the preceding eight plus years when I first found out what codependency was.” "After years of analysis and reading many self help books on other subjects to try to find out the answers about my struggles in my life, I had always been under the impression that the subject of codependency was a term referring to people who enable alcoholics or drug dependent people, so I never even thought to read up on it. Now, after reading your writings, a miraculous door of insight has opened up for me, and many pieces of the puzzle are finally falling into place" "I can't thank you enough for the very profound spiritual healing your book has provided to me. I cannot express in words that which I feel as a result of having truly "heard" your message of self-love and spiritual awakening. Your message has forever changed my path in this lifetime. Thank you so much for sharing your perceptions and experiences in your book." "I have read and studied many authors on this healing journey of mine but you really relate to all of my issues like no one else. I have read over 300 books in the past few years but you explain everything in simple but yet so enlightening truths. God bless you and you are making a difference to many. Oprah needs to read your work." "I love the fact that you are able to clearly bridge and tie in Christian teachings and (so-called) New Age philosophies in a clear and concise way for so many to hear at the same time." "Thank you Mr. Burney. Your book saved me from the depths of my despair, and my life has new direction and purpose now. I can never thank you enough." “I've read your book at least 20 times Your a brilliant & inspiring writer. You have made a great difference in my outlook." "Just finished your book…wow, it’s truly an amazing act of grace when the right information comes at just the right time. Thank you for writing this book! "Thank You for sharing your journey through your work. "Dance of The Wounded Souls" is a spiritual masterpiece." “Before I discovered your book I was in a very dark place emotionally, so much so that i really thought I was never going to come through it, I was drinking every night and was so ill i couldn't even move from the house. . . . thank god i found your book!"
Robert Burney M.A. is an author, counselor, and a pioneer in the field of inner child healing / codependency recovery. His book Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls has been called "one of the truly transformational works of our time" - and he has been referred to as "a metaphysical Stephen Hawking." A therapist and Spiritual Teacher whose work has been compared to John Bradshaw's "except much more spiritual" and described as "taking inner child healing to a new level," Robert has developed a holistic strategy for emotional healing that is the next level of recovery / healing / consciousness raising / enlightenment that so many people have been seeking. He has pioneered an inner child healing paradigm that offers a powerful, life changing formula for integrating Love, Spiritual Truth, and intellectual knowledge of healthy behavior into one's emotional experience of life - a blueprint for individuals to transform their core relationship with self and life.
Robert, whose work is firmly grounded on twelve step spiritual principles and emotional energy release / grief process therapy, learned in his own personal recovery that developing internal boundaries was the key to empowerment and freedom from the past. His unique approach and application of the concept of internal boundaries, coupled with a Loving spiritual belief system, make the work innovative and powerfully life changing. It does not matter how much Spiritual Truth, how many mystical experiences of oneness, how in tune with Love, you can feel in certain moments - if you cannot integrate it into your life in a way which changes your emotional experience of life on a moment to moment, day to day basis. You can go to therapy - or be in recovery - for many years, read all the Spiritual and self help books, go to workshops and seminars and lectures - compile encyclopedic intellectual knowledge of what healthy behavior is - and still be reacting to old wounds in the relationships that mean the most to you. In order to start to Truly be more Loving to self, and more open to giving and receiving love from others, it is necessary to change how you relate to your own internal process. If you want to learn how to relax and enjoy life in the moment, while you are healing and learning to Love your self, you want to read his book.
