The Need for Authenticity – Gabor Mate

Gabor Mate on the need for authenticity……

Expanding on some ideas from his book “When The Body Says No”
Ideas like..

  • anger which is about protecting what is valuable, yet is regarded as “negative emotion” and suppressed, and that energy goes inside to what we often call “depression”
  • how what we value kills us – women especially taking care of the needs of others and neglecting their own, or working all hours to pay for stuff
  • how, if we dont say “no” then eventually our body will.

And thanks to AG for this one.

Lots more Gabor Mate on and elsewhere
