Summary

We each create so much unnecessary suffering for ourselves. We may not be able to prevent the feeling, but we do have the power to control our reaction to it.

We will all experience heartbreak at some point in our lives. People leave when we want them to stay. We feel rejected, abandoned. That fantasy of a future we had hoped for fallen to ruin. All our shame and insecurities, those worst things we think about ourselves now define our days. It’s a feeling unlike any other. Deciding whether to give into, to break or face up-to and move on through heartbreak is a choice we each must make.

Broken Hearted is a practical guide to help you better understand your emotions and to take that first step to a more aware and abundant life. In Broken Hearted: Embracing the Transformative Potential of Heartbreak you will discover:

  • The single most important thing you can do to immediately relieve the intensity of the pain you’re suffering
  • A deeper understanding of the complexity of your emotions
  • Why it is you feel what you feel and do what you do
  • The science behind why heartbreak influences your behavior in such crazy-making ways
  • How to develop perspective and strengthen the skill of awareness
  • Understanding how through clarity there is knowledge
  • Meditations and exercises specifically tailored to enable you to reassess your romantic priorities and what it is you want and need from the relationships in your life
  • Practical steps to break the cycle of trauma and devastation following the breakdown of relationships
  • Applying the skills of healing to accept and solve problems

This isn’t an audiobook only for those following the path of Buddhism, but rather one for the spiritually inclined. Those who wish to discover how to live and how to love with a little more awareness. Bringing together our collective combined knowledge of Zen wisdom, philosophy, psychology and simple life-led experience, it is universal and without judgment.

A gem!

Heartbreak can make you. This book shows you how. The tone is compassionate and the content is realistic so that the solutions are relatable across ages. I wish I had this book after my last relationship ended then I would have healed sooner, but I am grateful I listened to it now. Such a gem!

Nobody Deserves To Suffer Heartbreak

It is one of the worst feeling in the world to have your heartbroken. Sadly, it is a part of life that the majority of us will experience at least once. This audiobook contained some very heartening and practical steps to move along the journey from heartbreak to recovery. It is not a quick fix, however it is well written and easy to follow.

We've all probably had our hearts broken at one point or another, either as a kid when your crush rejects you, or as an adult when a relationship comes to a humiliating and traumatic end. The books delves deep into the emotional scarring and offers practical and uplifting steps to heal your heart. Excellent reading.

Deep listen

The author has done an amazing job in putting their knowledge into this audiobook. I learnt a lot about heart break and what happens to our brain when we go through such tragedies, and tips on how we can control our reactions to it. I really liked the chapter on The Purpose of Pain. The audiobook was full of gems, and was narrated in simple, easy to understand narration by Abraham George.

A wonderful book came with wonderful timing

I am a pretty resilient guy and bounce back very fast from most setbacks. I was in my mid-50s before I received a heartbreak which really hit me hard. I am ever so grateful for this book for the encouragement and help it gave me through a very difficult time. I still wheel it out now and then if I am struggling.

Transformative information!

This is a great book to see challenging circumstances as opportunities to transform your life and grow personally and spiritually.
One of my favorite chapters was "cultivating awareness." take the time to be aware of myself has been the perfect present I gave myself after a heartbreak.

Informative Resource on addressing hearbreak

I came across this audiobook “Broken Hearted: Embracing the Transformative Potential of Heartbreak“, which is great because I wanted to have a resource for dealing with emotional challenges. I now have a resource on how to address emotions when life doesn’t go as planned. The topic on developing skills for healing caught my interest in particular.

AN EYE OPENER FOR SURE!

This audiobook is by far one of the best I have listened to as it tackles so much more than a Broken Hearted soul. It forces you to rethink and make some serious shifts of the mindset one may have developed over time. Some excellent insight of way of thinking and so many moments when I had to pause/re-listen to some concepts. Very deep material covered in a fluffy world we live in! Definitely definitely recommend this!

really good information

This book has some very interesting perspectives on heartbreak. Shame really hit home and had great insight. The tips that were provided were very helpful and made me realize I have had "learned helplessness" . This was great information and I really enjoyed this listen.

Helpful and Encouraging

This book was screaming to me that I needed to listen to it. I recently had my heartbroken after being in a relationship for 14 years. What I thought was everything true and nice about my life came crashing down. I was struggling to cope with what had happened to me and I was a mess. It was hard to work, hard to eat, and I couldn't sleep. I decided to give this book a try, and I am glad I did. This book held me to understand why I felt the way I did and had some helpful meditation exercises that I have started to incorporate into my daily routine. I am far from over this, but I now at least feel like I have a way out with the guidance of this book. Thank you to the author for such an impactful book that has helped me grow and control my reaction to a part of my life I never thought I would see.

Spiritual healing through Heartbreak

While the title does talk about healing in the wake of heartbreak, this book delves so much deeper than that. It goes deep into the reasons of "why" heartbreak makes us feel how we feel, and more importantly how to reevaluate ourselves and stop the cycle of repeated trauma on our self and spirit when we encounter such trials. We can never control what life brings our way, but we can control how we navigate those barriers. This book was really an eye opener to listen to and I will definitely be listening to this book again.

Thank you so much

I have recently just come out the other side of the infamous ‘dark night of the soul’. After discovering wonderful teachers like Eckhart Tolle and Adyashanti, I embarked on a spiritual voyage and cleansed as much of the “energetic junk” as I could from my system. Unfortunately, it’s hard to clear it all out, which is why my search for other wonderful books continued. So grateful I discovered this beautiful audiobook. It really lays out the fundamentals to changing your outer reality in a very zen setting. Highly recommended if you’re serious about spiritual growth.
