À travers les siècles, nombreux sont ceux qui ont recouru au stoïcisme pour surmonter leurs difficultés. Outre les Grecs et les Romains dans l'Antiquité, Frédéric le Grand, Michel de Montaigne, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Adam Smith et Théodore Roosevelt figuraient au rang des adeptes de cette école de pensée. Chaque année, l'ancien président américain Bill Clinton étudie les textes de l'empereur romain Marc Aurèle, philosophe stoïcien célèbre. De même, Wen Jiabao, ancien Premier ministre chinois, a lu ses Pensées pour moi-même "plus d'une centaine de fois". Ryan Holiday, stratégiste en médias, explique comment utiliser quelques-uns des éminents principes du stoïcisme pour transformer les obstacles en avantages. Son style dynamique et clair adapte ces idées antiques à la vie moderne ; getAbstract recommande ce guide utile du stoïcisme aux dirigeants, entrepreneurs et à quiconque doit faire face à des défis importants. >> Ce livre audio en version intégrale vous est proposé en exclusivité par Audible et est uniquement disponible en téléchargement.

It Didn't Start with You

64 ratings


A groundbreaking approach to transforming traumatic legacies passed down in families over generations, by an acclaimed expert in the field.  Depression. Anxiety. Chronic Pain. Phobias. Obsessive thoughts. The evidence is compelling: the roots of these difficulties may not reside in our immediate life experiences or in chemical imbalances in our brains - but in the lives of our parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents. The latest scientific research, now making headlines, supports what many have long intuited: that traumatic experience can be passed down through generations.  It Didn't Start with You builds on the work of leading experts in post-traumatic stress, including Mount Sinai School of Medicine neuroscientist Rachel Yehuda and psychiatrist Bessel van der Kolk, author of The Body Keeps the Score. Even if the person who suffered the original trauma has died or the story has been forgotten or silenced, memory and feelings can live on. These emotional legacies are often hidden, encoded in everything from gene expression to everyday language, and they play a far greater role in our emotional and physical health than has ever before been understood.  As a pioneer in the field of inherited family trauma, Mark Wolynn has worked with individuals and groups on a therapeutic level for over 20 years. It Didn't Start with You offers a pragmatic and prescriptive guide to his method, the Core Language Approach. Diagnostic self-inventories provide a way to uncover the fears and anxieties conveyed through everyday words, behaviors, and physical symptoms. Techniques for developing a genogram or extended family tree create a map of experiences going back through the generations. And visualization, active imagination, and direct dialogue create pathways to reconnection, integration, and reclaiming life and health. It Didn't Start With You is a transformative approach to resolving longstanding difficulties that, in many cases, traditional therapy, drugs, or other interventions have not had the capacity to touch.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
