About the author:
Robyn L. Posin, Ph.D., a psychologist in private practice in Ojai, California, spent her first 32 years as a virulently self-critical super-achiever never at peace with her self. At the urging of a voice deep within her - just past her 32nd birthday, forty years ago - she dropped out of that life. Taking to the road in a self-contained van, she began the journey of uncovering who she might be without the overlay of all her driven excelling and perfectionism. Along the way of that journey, as she has gradually learned how to slow down, listen in and tenderly embrace all the ways she is and is not, she has come - at long last - to be at peace with her self.

Tales To Kindle Gentleness and Compassion For Our Exhausted Selves

Authored by Robyn L Posin Ph.D.

In this collection of emotionally uncensored tales, the author - a licensed psychologist - shares lessons learned from a life dedicated to healing from the ravages of hyper-self-criticism and super-achievement that plague most of us, particularly women. The tales are teaching stories through which the reader vicariously experiences ways to move from self-reproach to self-nurture and self-acceptance.

The lessons of radical self-care, self-compassion and self love in these pages help one to kindle an inner dialog that can be life changing. The stories may open readers to a more kind-hearted relationship with themselves. They repeatedly remind readers to go more slowly, to honor and make safe space to feel all their feelings, to remember that rest is a sacred act and to know that it is possible to compassionately embrace all the ways that they are: ever-evolving, warts and all, bumbling works-in-progress always doing the best they can with the consciousness available to them in the moment.
