To some degree we are all compulsive. Our struggles range from overworrying and overworking to overeating and alcohol and drug abuse. When we realize we are compulsive, our main reaction until now has been to try to control our behavior, but when we try to control our compulsions, they control us. If we do manage to stop one, another always seems to take its place.

Over the past three decades, Mary O’Malley has developed a revolutionary approach to healing our compulsions. She gently invites us to be curious about them, to engage them and ask ourselves questions that help us understand our behaviors. She shows us how lasting healing can come from being curious and forgiving rather than controlling and shameful. Compulsions then become our teachers. Her book is filled with new perspectives and simple techniques that anyone can easily grasp.


“Every page of this book is replete with spiritual insights, with wisdom both practical and profound.”
— Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now

“Ancient wisdom tells us that the best solution to a problem is sometimes to relax into it rather than struggle and fight. This is the essential insight Mary O’Malley brings to the challenges of compulsive behaviors. As she explains, this involves the cultivation of compassion, forgiveness, and curiosity. Our culture, besotted with the desire for dominance and control, deeply needs this message.”
— Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words, Reinventing Medicine, and Healing Beyond the Body

“Finally, a conscious, loving, and insightful way to understand and deal with our compulsions. Mary O’Malley has penetrated to the heart of healing behaviors that many of us find overwhelming. This book takes compulsion therapy to a whole new level.”
— Alan Cohen, author of Mr. Everit’s Secret

“Allow this book to be a companion and compassionate guide on your journey of awakening and to help you discover the perfection that is always already here, in the depth of the present moment, regardless of what is happening.”
— Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now
