Previously titled The Ecstasy of Surrender
“One of the most important changes we can make is to shift from seeing surrender as sign of defeat, to seeing it as a land of victory inside ourselves. In The Power of Surrender, Dr. Judith Orloff offers beautiful guidance and insight into making the switch.”
New York Times bestselling author and UCLA psychiatrist, Judith Orloff, M.D. has created a results-oriented book that shows readers how to thrive in our modern, task-heavy, constantly-wired lives. She considers this her most important book for compelling reasons.
National Bestseller, THE POWER OF SURRENDER reveals everything you will ever need to know about when to let go versus when to assert control – the secret formula to vibrant health, longevity, wellness, healing, success, pleasure, and happiness. The powerful promise of this book, from succeeding in business to falling in love to accepting death, is letting yourself be catapulted beyond the ordinary to view all of existence in extraordinary terms.
Each chapter guides readers through specific ways they can apply surrender to success, money and communication, relationships, love and sexuality, the divinity of the body, illness, pain, aging, death and beyond. Dr. Orloff teaches you how to shut off an overactive mind to achieve inner calm, and how to stop worrying and pushing too hard so you can feel more peace of mind.
Dr. Orloff’s message is that you can sabotage your health, success, and longevity by pushing too hard. Surrender is the antidote to stress in a world that relentlessly conspires to interrupt creative thought. Surrender boosts your brain’s endorphins–euphoric, opiate-like pain killers–and serotonin, a natural antidepressant that allows you to relax, have more fun, and succeed more wildly than ever before. Though surrender may seem counter-intuitive to making your goals happen, it can actually be the magical factor that facilitates this and relieves gridlock. Life becomes easier and more blissful when you can let go.
