A New York Times bestseller, Emotional Freedom is a road map for those who are stressed out, discouraged, or overwhelmed as well as for those who are in a good emotional place but want to feel even better.

Picture yourself trapped in a traffic jam feeling utterly calm. Imagine being unflappable and relaxed when your supervisor loses her temper. What if you were peaceful instead of anxious? What if your life were filled with nurturing relationships and a warm sense of belonging? This is what it feels like when you’ve achieved emotional freedom.

Bestselling author Dr. Judith Orloff invites you to take a remarkable journey, one that leads to happiness and serenity, and a place where you can gain mastery over the negativity that pervades daily life. No matter how stressed you currently feel, the time for positive change is now. You possess the ability to liberate yourself from depression, anger, and fear.

Synthesizing neuroscience, intuitive medicine, psychology, and subtle energy techniques, Dr. Orloff maps the elegant relationships between our minds, bodies, spirits, and environments. With humor and compassion, she shows you how to identify the most powerful negative emotions and how to transform them into hope, kindness, and courage. Compelling patient case studies and stories from her online community, her workshop participants, and her own private life illustrate the simple, easy-to-follow action steps that you can take to cope with emotional vampires, disappointments, and rejection. As Dr. Orloff shows, each day presents opportunities for us to be heroes in our own lives: to turn away from negativity, react constructively, and seize command of any situation. Complete emotional freedom is within your grasp.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca Burch | 2/18/2014

    " This is a great resource for ways to deal with negative emotions, especially when those emotions come from "energy vampires" who are toxic to be around. Through this book, I realized that I am very sensitive to others' energies, and that there are exercises that I can do to prevent taking on their energy and becoming negative. This all sounds very new-agey and silly to some, I'm sure, but whatever works! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 2/12/2014

    " I love the simple straightforward way she writes, with humor and science. Love this one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pamela Mullins | 2/3/2014

    " I got 25% through it and couldn't finish it. It is boring and consists of information I already know. Perhaps I'll try it again later, but right now there are simply too many other good books to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie Rasmussen | 1/17/2014

    " Audio Version. Loved it. Don't be turned off by the number of CD's, it's worth it. One of the best self help books out there in my opinion, and I've read many. I feel like it answered many questions left unanswered by other such books in a very comprehensive, positive and nurturing way. I feel like I finally have a way to describe myself, and to understand that it's normal! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gloria | 1/13/2014

    " Orloff sometimes goes into too much personal info about her own life that isn't necessary to make her points. The content, however, is thorough when discussing fear, loneliness, anger, frustration, anxiety, depression, and envy. Includes mini quizzes and provides tools for coping. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 12/29/2013

    " I love all of Judith Orloff's books. She is a very insightful psychiatrist and intuitive. I tried several of her ideas and exercises for dealing with difficult emotions and found them effective. I loved her idea about writing down a question and getting it answered in your dream. I got myself a dream notebook, tried it and it worked! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan Ankerstjerne | 12/27/2013

    " The book changed my life. Highly recommended. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tan Jia Hui | 12/16/2013

    " the dreams analysis is interesting. However it's still quite vague on how you interpret the dreams themselves as accurate as one can because of the possibility of different perspectives. Will appreciate more techniques. The book nevertheless is a good, soothing and insightful read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 12/12/2013

    " I wanted to like this book - really I did. But I felt like Dr. Orloff missed the mark with her advice. A lot of it surrounded meditation, which is a very good tool. But so many of the emotions she's discussing require more than self-help. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gloriavirtutisumbra | 12/11/2013

    " interesting, lots of great ideas of things to do. good storytelling and lead-ups to the subjects discussed. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ann | 11/27/2013

    " Another self help book that repeats what so many others do but this one with a California new wave twist. Sometimes her word choice and cliches were a bit much for me to handle even though I practice yoga and meditation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 11/16/2013

    " I found some really practical tips in this book about holistic wellness. How to experience more peace. I have read many of these types of books and it wasn't my fave, but it was helpful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Curtis Jensen | 7/20/2013

    " It's ok. Not very many ah ha moments. Very hippish ideas. Some good ones. Doesn't explain how to cultivate "intuition" or where it comes from and (in my opinion) is a off on how to tell the difference between intuition and wishing. She tends to bend religious and philosophical ideas to fit her own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dodi | 4/18/2013

    " I liked that Judith gave practical action steps in dealing with what I consider destructive emotions. In fact, I liked it enough that I may even buy it, so I can refresh my memory from time to time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marla | 7/13/2012

    " This had some great ideas in it. I listened to it mainly in the car so I couldn't take notes. I might have read a physical book instead. But it was good. Good examples. I had several ah ha moments listening. I will implement some of the exercises. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Patricia | 12/19/2011

    " It basically tells you to meditate. "

    " I found this book very insightful and full of fascinating information into various personality types and how to understand and deal with them better. The book also provides really good insight into understanding one's own faults/flaws and how to overcome them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise Agnew | 12/22/2010

    " I loved how this book puts together psychology with the spiritual...it falls in with a lot of my belief system. I think if only half the people in this world used her techniques for reducing worry, stress, frustration...you name it, the world would be better off. I highly recommend this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Naweed | 3/8/2010
