Dare To Feel: The Transformational Path of the Heart

Sounds True. Jan. 2024. 272p. ISBN 9781649631770. $28.99. SELF-HELP
Roxo (F*ck Like a Goddess) has made a name for herself in the self-help world by providing women with strategies for reclaiming their bodies and voices from patriarchal pressures and internalized systems of oppression. Her latest book is designed to show her audience how they are taught to believe that repressing their feelings makes them “good” and keeps them safe, when in fact it locks them into patterns that often don’t serve them well and make it impossible to live or love in big, bold ways. Roxo writes in a style familiar to readers of New Age books (“connecting to Source”; “opening to Goddess/God/the Divine”), yet the concepts she shares about embodiment may be of interest to readers who enjoy authors such as Brené Brown who explore issues of shame, boundaries, fear, and self-expression.
VERDICT Roxo’s book reminds readers that stories matter, and that to be good tellers of their stories, they also need to listen to and learn from the people around them. A beautiful if somewhat jargony exploration of coming home to one’s body, feelings, and truths in collective, vulnerable ways.
