Dear Ginny Black,
Thank you so much for this kind and enthusiastic review. Yes, as you say, what I try to do is not always easy and I end up being very vulnerable to the accusation of being self indugent when I go out there and try and do things things that will be of interest to everyone. I'm so pleased that you don't find me too personal or revalatory. As you say - it's hard to try and be as honest and open as possible and share myself without it ending up just feeling 'me, me.'
I'm so glad you picked up on the 'Continuum Concept' aspects of my time with the Ashaninka - an aspect of the book that no-one else has picked up on. Yup, just as Jean says, I never heard a child cry or a raised voice. Alas how far from the parenting I see around me in Battersea every day. But her principles are hard to apply without a community around you aren't they? Anyway thank you SO much for enjoying another of the books and for taking the time to write this thoughtful and encouraging review. x i
