“You want to liberate yourself from the concentration camp of your own mind.”
Dr.Edith Eger is the embodiment of resilience in mind and spirit. In her books The Choice and The Gift, she details her extraordinary journey as a Holocaust survivor and the lessons it taught her to achieve freedom in our lives. She shares various prisons of the mind – from victimhood to the need to be right – and reveals that the key to free ourselves is within.
Our relationship with ourselves is the throughline of Dr. Eger’s work. “The only one you have for a lifetime is you,” she says. She discusses becoming the real you, letting go of what doesn’t serve you, and the key ingredient to a joyful life: love for ourselves and each other.
