Publisher's Summary

Following in the footsteps of the success of The Completion Process, best-selling author and modern spiritual leader Teal Swan offers an in-depth exploration and understanding of loneliness. Drawing on her extraordinary healing technique, the Connection Process, Teal offers a way to experience connection once again.

Loneliness is reaching endemic proportions in our society, reflected by rising suicide rates and increased mental illness. Now, more than ever, we need to find a way to connect. Loneliness is a feeling of separation or isolation; it is not necessarily the same as the physical state of being alone. This book is for people who suffer from loneliness, the kind that cannot be solved by simply being around other people. Their aloneness is a deeply embedded pattern that is both negative and painful; it is often fueled by trauma, loss, addiction, grief, and a lack of self-esteem and insecurity. 

In The Anatomy of Loneliness, Teal identifies the three pillars or qualities of loneliness: separation, shame, and fear, and goes on to share her revolutionary technique, the Connection Process, a form of intuitive journeying, usually involving two people, a "receiver" and a "journeyer". Through a series of exercises, each person experiences "walls" and "blockages"; as they move through the process, both participants face their fears, learning from these to reach a place of unconditional love and acceptance.

A Beautiful Guide for Learning to Love Yourself and Others

Loving and understanding your many selves and others is thoughtfully laid out in a step by step guide complete with homework and lessons. There is so much depth in the material that it could have been 3 books! Those familiar with Teal’s work will recognize the material covered on a deeper level in this awesome audible read by none other than its author Teal Swan. A must have for anyone wishing to alleviate loneliness. Bravo Teal! Yet another masterpiece in writing and poetry. Thanks for including it in the audible format.

Good content but narrator makes it uninteresting

I couldn't keep up with the way it's narratedby the author. it feels like it was read by a computer. the ideas in the book up to chapter two are great, maybe I'll buy the book

Invaluable Information

Teal delivers Four Pillars of Loneliness and multiple ways you are rejecting connection in your life and the reasons that you may be doing that.

Teal is from UT, USA so she does not have any accent and she reads slow enough for you to process these heavy concepts.

I highly recommend this book to everyone.

I have no idea what you talking about.

I gave her two stars because I know she’s trying, but unless you’re from some sort of New Age crunchy granola part of the world it does not make any sense.

So deep

This is so deep and spiritual that sometimes I had to repeat some parts to understand it.
