In the introduction to Broken Open: Embracing Heartache & Betrayal as Gateways to Unconditional Love, Mal Duane explains the purpose of this book: “Broken Open is about finding wholeness, forgiveness, and unconditional love for yourself and others after your heart has been wounded by betrayal.” This is one of the best books I have read on the power of vulnerability. The author leads readers to redefine their experience of pain and proposes a path to healing and finding the love they need in the center of their hearts.

Using the art of storytelling and infusing the writing with powerful insights, Mal Duane reassures readers that although their pain can be overwhelming today and even deeper and more profound than any they have felt before, they can find meaning by listening to it, settling into it, and allowing it to open new doors for love and meaning. The author writes from the very center of the human experience of heartache, from the very place we have been so deeply hurt, and teaches readers how to discover new love from that center, the true love that should start from them.

In the heart of Broken Open: Embracing Heartache & Betrayal as Gateways to Unconditional Love is the message that we can heal by allowing ourselves to be loved deeply and unconditionally and with a love that is very accessible to us; the love that we possess. In a firm and compassionate voice, the author leads readers to rediscover wholeness and freedom. Inspiring and filled with lessons for everyone.
