“If only Light in the Heart of Darkness, this new perspective on depression was available 20 years ago when I was at my lowest point, who knows where I’d be now" An easy read that guides you, at your own pace, to lifting the lid off the depressive ways of living, highly recommended.
Wow. I'm amazed at how helpful and practical this book is. As one who has experienced depression, it's good to read from another who has actually been there too and not only gotten through it for good but has distilled an understanding quite unlike anything else I've read. Kevin Billet has a way of explaining Depression and how to clear from it, that will make sense to anyone. Packed full of life changing processes to be free of this debilitating condition, this book gives profound hope to those suffering as well as their loved ones. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
Almost 19 year ago I came home to myself at my first Journey Intensive weekend, presented by the author’s wife Brandon Bays. Not long after I realised that my on and off bouts of depression were a thing of the past and I wasn’t afraid of emotions anymore!
Light in the Heart of Darkness is an incredible gift. Kevin Billett very gently guides the reader deeper and deeper into finding freedom within themselves. Alongside that he shares his own story of clinical depression and how he was able to liberate himself from it. The sequence of the various processes, introspections, exercises is very well thought through and gives the reader time and space to get used to looking within themselves rather than outside for the key to their wellbeing. And what a gift to have all these processes available for free online as an audio, guided by the author!
I have personally attended a weekend workshop based on the material in this book and can vouch for the effectiveness of the work and all its components. Kevin teaches with such compassion and a fierce desire to bring this light into everyones lives. And I am forever grateful to him and Brandon for bringing this work into the world - it has changed my life for the better.
The author invites the reader to be open to the possibility of viewing depression from a different view to that previously discussed. Is transparent about the possible controversial views presented following many years of managing, researching and healing from depression. A variety of exercises (with download links) are provided to guide the reader through experiential learning and exploration. An interesting read for health professionals, those who live with people with depression, and a valuable, possibly freeing experience, for those with depression.
Distilling research and personal experience the Author provides insight and clarity on what depressions is. With exercises to do throughout the book (also available as audio links) this book is experiential, one of self discovery, and a path out of depression. Thoroughly recommended.
A total new approach to depression. This book comes from an emotional view instead of the old mental illness approaches. Having suffered from depression in the past this book offers a drug free way of clearing old emotional blocks from where depression begins. The exercises in this book assist in going within and exposing deep, hidden emotional memories and then enabling them to be dealt with creating a ‘letting go’ which releases the negativity.
I found the book to be a total revelation - at last someone is offering hope and a way to heal from depression that really makes sense to me. I found the book easy to read and the exercises had surprisingly positive results. Thank you Kevin Billet for this inspired work.
As a person who works in mental health on a daily basis, I feel the authors have nailed the true reason behind depression and offered a life saver to those who are ready to step away from their depression into a better place of being. Well done, I hope this becomes a best seller!
This book is a game changer for millions of people throughout the world who have suffered with Depression. It changes the way in which Depression has been seen, and provides an opportunity for people to work through their issues and find peace and joy.
