Author: Walter Riso
Publisher: Grupo Planeta Spain
La estadística no engaña: más del cincuenta por ciento de la población occidental es infiel, lo ha sido o lo será. ¿Pero qué se debería entender hoy en día por infidelidad? ¿Cuál es el secreto de esa otra parte de la población que se mantiene fiel? ¿Qué factores nos empujan a traicionar los pactos establecidos con nuestra pareja? ¿Cuáles son las posibles consecuencias psicológicas de este tipo de engaño? Desde una perspectiva eminentemente práctica, Jugando con fuego aborda estas y otras muchas cuestiones, que pueden llegar a ser fundamentales para el correcto desarrollo de nuestra relación de pareja. Además, nos proporciona las claves para que, desde el punto de vista de la psicología, podamos identificar y evitar las tentaciones a las que no queremos sucumbir.
Fidelity is not the absence of desire, but rather the product of will and conscious decision. In other words, fidelity is self-control and timely avoidance. When we suspect that we may end up liking someone in that way or when we feel the first tingle of attraction and we don’t want to be unfaithful, the best option is to turn away from temptation and avoid playing with fire at all costs. In this guide, Dr. Walter Riso provides a number of indispensable steps to help us understand infidelity from its different perspectives. He also outlines a number of strategies that can help us identify whether infidelity has become a part of our sentimental relationship with out partner.
When you are assertive, you are actively exercising and/or defending your rights: saying no, expressing disagreement, giving a contrary opinion and/or expressing concrete negative feelings without submissively allowing yourself to be manipulated or aggressively violating the rights of others. If you are afraid of hurting other people’s feelings by being honest, if you are not able to express your anger or a conflicting opinion in a way that is socially acceptable, or if you feel that others humiliate and manipulate you.
“Activating your self-love is the first step towards any type of psychological growth and personal improvement. Of course I am not talking about the dark side of self-esteem, which leads to narcissism and fascination with the ego, but rather about having a genuine ability to, fearless and unashamedly, recognize your strengths and virtues, integrate them into the development of your own life..." In this guide, Dr. Walter Riso teaches us about the tools we need to help bolster our self-esteem; he teaches us to feed our self-love, freeing us from dependencies and stripping away all those things that weigh heavily on us. This, in turn, enables us to build our own happiness.
I have written this guide in order to help you create a space for reflection within your life and as a result develop emotional and cognitive strategies that can make you more resistant to love-sickness. Once you learn exactly why we absurdly equate love to suffering, you´ll know how to avoid falling into the trap and learn to foster more adaptive schemes of behaviour. Through the concepts of philosophy, psychology and his 30 years plus of experience as a therapist, in the 39 chapters of this book, Walter Riso guides us through a model or scheme of reflection to help us understand the characteristics of a love that is good (healthy, coherent, constructive) and one that is bad (sick, incoherent, destructive).
Being emotionally independent does not mean that you have to stop being loving, It is about being the master of your own feelings, faithful to your own principles and never handing over your personal dignity to someone else in exchange for something, not even in the name of love. Do I you love or do I depend? If this is a question you ask yourself, then this guide, based on the bestseller, To Love or to Depend? is for you. In it, Walter Riso teaches us, in a practical manner and without too much theory involved, the steps we need to take in order to be able to love without being emotionally dependent. He provides ideas and processes that will help you develop the right skills to deal with emotional dependency, prevent it and/or create a lifestyle aimed at emotional independence and affective detachment.
The Panic Fables
Author: Alejandro Jodorowsky
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
The complete series of filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky’s spiritual comics, translated into English for the first time • Contains all 284 of Jodo’s Panic Fables comics, published weekly from 1967 to 1973 in Mexico City’s El Heraldo newspaper • Includes an introduction describing how the Panic Fables came to be • Explains how he incorporated Zen teachings, initiatory wisdom, and sacred symbology into his Panic Fables, as well as himself as one of the characters In 1967, in response to theatrical censorship rules that put him on the political “black list” in Mexico City and caused his plays and his pantomime classes at the School of Fine Arts to be cancelled, Alejandro Jodorowsky decided to pursue a new form of artistic expression to earn his living: comics. Working with his friend Luis Spota, the editor of the cultural section of the newspaper El Heraldo de México, Jodo initially planned 3 months’ worth of weekly comics, which he would draw himself. However, his “Panic Fables”--named after his early ‘60s avant-garde theater movement in Paris--were met with such insatiable popularity that he continued the series for six and a half years, from June 1967 until December 1973. Appearing for the first time in English, this book presents all 284 of Jodorowsky’s Panic Fables in full color, along with an introduction by the author. He reveals how his first comics reflected his pessimism about the future and the meaning of life, the negativity of which soon exhausted him. He realized he needed to show the positivity that he encountered in life, and thus, little by little, he began incorporating Zen teachings, initiatory wisdom, and sacred symbology into his Panic Fables. Through this transformation and the outpouring of support from his devoted readers, many of whom cite the Panic Fables as providing pivotal guidance during their adolescence, Jodo discovered that art can serve to heal as well as raise consciousness. Writing himself into his comics, Jodo can be glimpsed as the character of the disciple who talks with his master and, as the series progresses, gradually grows to assume the role of master, providing psychomagic solutions to the problems of everyday life. In reading the complete Panic Fables in chronological order, much like his film The Dance of Reality, we witness in colorful detail Jodorowsky’s own path of spiritual growth.
