If you want to feel better but don’t know how, this book will give you the tools you need.
Emotional Liberation is freedom from negative, reactive behavior patterns and the haunting history that caused them. This book will give you the theory and practice to use heavy emotions for personal growth and therapeutic healing.
When you learn how to mindfully work with your emotions, you regain your power and discover how to heal yourself.
Your feelings become a source of wisdom and guidance, instead of something that keeps you stuck.

This book will help you raise the quality of your mental and emotional wellbeing.
Imagine that whenever you feel bad, you could always know why and, more importantly, what you need to do to feel better. You’d never be stuck in anxiety, depression, or dysfunction. You would handle any new crisis and recover from upsets quickly.
Unfortunately, we’ve all experienced trauma and the pain that causes heavy emotions and everyday reactions. Mindful processing of emotions is the key to recovery. Discover how your feelings can be tools for personal growth. Emotional Liberation teaches you to work well with your feelings and take control of situations that upset you, with practical tools to heal old wounds, find empowerment from trauma, and transform self-defeating patterns.
When emotionally agile, you can handle strong emotions and keep your cool when others are losing theirs. When emotionally skillful, you understand what others are feeling and can help them, rather than being triggered and drawn into their drama. Emotional Liberation is the freedom to live fully and authentically, and to move through the ups and downs of life with wisdom and grace.

Conclusion: We All Want to Feel Good
GuruMeher holds a big vision for global peace through individual emotional health, which he believes is accessible to everyone.
His name means “teacher of compassion.” His love of science and the desire to know how things work led him to study astrophysics at Cornell University. Depression and feelings of inadequacy shifted his interest to the Inner Universe – how we humans work and how that understanding can give people tools for happiness. Eastern philosophies and yoga for self-actualization, through a rigorously disciplined personal practice, became his crucible for self-healing.
Attracted by the idea of global change through personal transformation, teaching yoga and meditation became the way he could share what he found with others. He has trained thousands of yoga teachers internationally.
Through twenty years of counseling individuals and couples as a Professional Life Coach and Certified Yoga Therapist, he found that his clients could find answers to their problems with simple guidance and mindfulness techniques from yoga. Astounded by the predictable consistency of human emotional response to problems and trauma, GuruMeher theorized that each difficult emotion is a natural ally, awakened for a specific function to handle our challenges. His clinical work showed that to be true and resulted in the Senses of the Soul method, which has been called “the next evolution in therapy”. It is based on the premise that emotions are not problems to be treated, but are analogous to our immune system’s response to an infection; they are part of a remedy to heal difficult experiences. This mindful use of emotions has proven to be an effective path to self-healing, inner guidance and personal power.
Happily married for 35 years, GuruMeher and his wife, Siri Atma, live in Los Angeles, CA where they raised two emotionally strong children. They plan a return to their southern roots by building a home in the mountains near Asheville, NC.
