Don’t Tell Me to Relax

Ralph De La Rosa

Overview

Every day we are bombarded with terrible images – war, oppression, and a rapidly deteriorating economy and climate. Faced with these harsh realities, how can we possibly relax?

Ralph De La Rosa is a psychotherapist, writer, storyteller, and meditation teacher. In this book, De La Rosa reminds us that it's completely normal to feel outraged at the daily injustices in our world, while offering realistic self-care practices.

For many of us, economic and social oppression can make it difficult to live peacefully. But while our feelings are valid, self-care, meditation, and therapy can still be useful tools to avoid feeling burnt out.

"Our anger is moral. Our rage is sacred. Our anxiety contains wisdom. Our hearts are telling us the truth."
