Learning to Feel: One Man's Journey of Reconnecting to the Heart of Emotions by Kris Girrell is based on the author’s personal experiences whilst enduring the sensation of being emotionally stuck. This interesting and introspective read asks us to examine whether we are truly accessing our feelings or not or simply going through the motions of life. Packed with deep questions to help the reader walk the same exploratory path as the author, this is a read which involves its audience in a truly interactive soul-searching mission. It is a combination of memoir, self-help, and motivational writing that is suitable for the general reading audience.
It is clear from the outset that Kris Girrell is passionate about the subject matter of this intense and well-presented self-help book. One of the most striking qualities of the read is the personality and honesty embedded in the narrative, gently coaxing readers to look at themselves from a more critical viewpoint. It also peels back many layers of the author’s own heart and mind to show us the true power of being vulnerable and honest with ourselves. I especially enjoyed the chapter likening the journey to the hero’s quest and how we might feel about concepts that are so firmly embedded into our minds that we might not even realize they are there. Learning to Feel is a work that is profoundly researched, well-written, and fascinating to read, and it will certainly help anyone looking to explore the nature of their innermost feelings for themselves.
