THE COURAGE TO BE FREE Discover Your Original Fearless Self

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sean Runnette

Personal Growth • 2.5 hr. • Unabridged • © 2010

Stress in this profound little audio is all about the divide between our original unrestricted self and the self-compromising thoughts and feelings dumped on us by negative experiences, unsupportive people, and our lack of faith in the goodness of life. Powerful visual imagery and memorable stories deliver the Buddhist-like prescriptions, which include living in the moment, quieting the mind, avoiding pressures and compulsions, and viewing external challenges as gateways to inner growth. Sean Runnette’s narration is remarkable for its compassion and understanding of Finley’s message. Runnette’s tender approach to every sentence and paragraph helps the author’s wisdom glow. Along with the understated power of the author’s writing, Runnette’s performance makes this one of the most arresting and thought-provoking audiobooks available today. T.W.
