So many men are living and parenting through the behaviors that were established during their childhood. While those behaviors may have served us as a child, they cause damage to our relationships that we have, as adults, and impact every area of our life!Chris Schiavo led a very successful life, with a highly profitable insurance agency. He was married with a young son, when he felt an increasingly louder inner voice telling him to make changes in his life. He and his wife left a multi-million dollar business, with no promise of future income, to devote their time to a non-profit recovery center, in a small Texas community. To say that it was a leap of faith is an understatement!While Chris and Jen gave their time and energy to the recovery center, an amazing thing started to happen. For the first time in his life, Chris began to look at who he really is and who he is not.For most of his life he wanted to be loved and liked by others. In fact he needed to be loved and liked by others, because he never learned how to love himself. In doing so, Chris learned how to be what he thought every one else and society wanted him to be. That is an exhausting and stifling way to live!This book gives you the tools, exercises and information that Chris used to start his inner journey. One of the biggest gifts that you will get from this is Self Love. When Chris became a father he vowed to not use some of the behaviors that he disliked from the men that helped raise him. However, without the proper tools and self love it seemed impossible to keep those behaviors (anger, judgment, perfectionism, impatience) at bay.Through self discovery, Chris learned that he is not his behaviors. And through the work of this book, he became aware of and began to release those behaviors that were putting rifts in his most treasured relationships. What a relief it was when he realized that he is not his behaviors and he CAN change. There was a freedom that Chris had never experienced before.When you uncover your Authentic Self, just like Chris, you will experience more freedom, love, and joy in every aspect of your life!Chris spent more than 10 years, prior to his self discovery, reading self help and leadership books, attending success and personal development seminars, but could never break through his behaviors. Thats because the behaviors were attached to unhealed wounds that were not being addressed. As he used the tools in Healing Men, Healing Families he was able to heal those wounds and get to the breakthroughs that had been waiting for him.If you are looking for or needing change in your life, then read and do the work of Healing Men,Healing Families.
