The Common Ground
Breaking the Shackles
Shame is an emotion that many of us don't recognize easily, and yet it's usually the basis of addiction, violence, overwork, emotional shutdown, and adopting a 'false self.' The good news is that once we recognize it for what it is, shame loses much of its toxicity. Breaking the Shackles is a revised edition of the 1995 book, Men Healing Shame, in which several dozen men write of their experience healing the effects of toxic shame. Among the chapter authors are Robert Bly, John Guarnaschelli and Gershen Kaufman.
