Lists with This Book. Oct 08, Tilda rated it did not like it. Despite its popularity, I didn’t like this book. I didn’t finish it because I really didn’t like it. The style of writing is too airy-fairy, lots of nice qnd fluffy words but lacking any real substance. Plus his arguments are not solid and he contradicts himself a lot.
Example of what I consider a strange sentence: It that really the definition of “perfection”? If someone walked up to me and as Despite its popularity, I didn’t like this book. If someone walked up to me and asked me to define homexoming I wouldn’t say “It’s the feeling of unified wholeness. I have a legal background so maybe this is just too vague for my taste. What’s the difference between “wholeness” and “unique wholeness” precisely?
It’s just one example of many strange sentences.
Plus he makes a lot of comparisons between humans and animals and how animals are not capable of this or that, but is he some kind of expert on the subject or just stating his opinions? Because if those are just his opinions, he shouldn’t state it as fact. I think he makes a few valid points, but they are hidden among far too much vagueness, unsubstantiated arguments, and things which simply don’t make any sense. I have stopped reading it because I was scribbling all over the pages with so much red ink to indicate my disagreement, that I thought it best to leave it and try another book on the same subject.
So far, so good. Homecomint 27, James rated it it was amazing. He spoke to hpmecoming crowd of just over a thousand people and at times when he was sharing stories of his personal shame scenerios reclaming could literally hear a pin drop.
Homecoming: Reclaiming and Healing Your Inner Child
This guy knows how to shed light on those dark painful areas that we hold inside. Reading his books and watching the series he had on PBS years ago changed my life for the better! Thank You John Bradshaw! Feb 20, marie monroe rated it it was amazing. Jun 06, Kris Irvin rated it liked it.
This book has some very fascinating information, if you can suspend your cynicism long enough to get into it. I greatly enjoyed reading the first half and felt like the author knew my exact situation because of the scarily accurate “diagnosis” he gave.
But once I got to the exercises, I lost interest. I’d like to know how to heal my inner child without having to do weird meditations, thank you. Actually, I’m not sure I believe in the whole concept of an inner child, I thought it was kind of hoke This book has some very fascinating information, if you can suspend your cynicism long enough to get into it. Relcaiming, I’m not sure I believe in the whole concept of an inner ohmecoming, I thought it was kind of hokey. But it does give Bradshaw an easy way to explain what’s wrong with you.
I’m interested in reading his other books, but meditating and inviting my inner child to come home and live with me is too “out there” for my taste. Jul 29, Katja rated it it was ok. I had mixed reactions to this book. On the one hand, the basic concept how childhood wounds escalate into adult problems is incredibly important.
However, this book is a product of its time. Howeve I had mixed reactions to this book. However, a few tears did spring to my eyes while I was reading, so I have to admit it had the desired effect of helping me understand just reclaimkng deep childhood wounds run. There are lots of wnd points here that rang true, but also a lot of dubious content that went along with reclaimijg, and I quickly figured out that the best way vhampioning read it is to skim through, get the general idea and not fuss too much over the details.
Apr 24, Cindy rated it it was ok Shelves: This book wasn’t helpful for me but I have a friend is growing a lot from her work with this book. Jan 01, Madeline rated it it was amazing.
This book is very near and dear to me as homeclming was the 1st book I read at 18 after giving birth homedoming beginning my journey of healing and self-discovery. Jun 19, Troy rated it it was ok. I was a little distraught reading the first chapter of this book. The phrasing of things were making me feel, not very empowered. Granted, the subject matter should probably warrant that.
The first chapter explains the types of “inner child” issues people have. There’s a quiz at the end of the first chapter that tells you if the book is right for you or not. I do appreciate that the book has it’s own filtering mechanism in the first chapter to tell you to read the rest or not. I ended up being f I was a little distraught reading the first chapter of this book.
I ended up being filtered out. If someone picks this book up, reads the first chapter, and it resonates with them, I imagine it would be a very good book as I’ve read others by him and like his writing style. May 08, Lisa rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This is an excellent way to work through the process of healing and reclaiming your ‘inner child.
There are places in the heart which do not yet exist; pain must be in order that they be.
Apr 11, Ben rated it it was ok. The concept of the Inner Child homevoming important and beautiful, yet the book just doesn’t fit into our time, anymore. Feb 16, Stephanie rated it did not like it. I stopped reading it as it seems to me the author liked talking about himself more and liked to show how educated he is. I do like the explanation but it’s to Freudian for me homecomingg proper research to back it up. Jun 25, Shanna rated it it was ok. This book was an assignment so not one I would have picked out myself.
It was laborious which is to be expected to an extent but oh my, I could not wait to be done with this. I am currently rejoicing! Jan 18, Aurora rated it it was amazing. I am still reading this book, but needed to make a comment on how timeless this advice really is, especially during this technologically driven time.
I had been looking for help in how to get unstuck in my life. I was also struggling with finding the right answers within myself on a variety of topics. This book so far has helped me in so many ways.
While I am dreading finishing this book, I can’t homecomnig to see how this important book ends. A must read if you are a parent, a child, parent to be, or I am still reading this book, but needed to make a comment on how timeless this advice adn is, especially during this technologically driven time.
