Surrender as a coping technique for life's issues is a thought-provoking premise. Orloff develops it into an insightful approach. She assumes her readers have high intelligence and talks directly to them with respect and forthrightness. This quality makes her an excellent teacher. Her chapters speak to paths we all follow from time to time in our lives. I took her suggestion to jump around to read the chapters that have greatest relevance.
The chapter on igniting your super senses and particularly the art of reading people encourages the reader to greater sensitivity in relating to other people. She assumes we all have super senses and can develop them if we choose to. I found the surrender test and the chapters on illness and aging equally valuable.
I love to read books with a highlighter. Returning to read the highlights later gives me added dimension. Orloff's book is such a treasure: "Surrender to your intuition: Make space for grace." "...illness is a call for your soul to grow. "...dreams are committed to supporting your well being." "Make your mind a shelter, a safe place to go."
If we learn her techniques we can grow spiritually, have happier more fulfilling lives, and give more meaningful service to mankind. If that possibility intrigues you, I highly recommend The Ecstasy of Surrender as a guide. You'll be glad you read it.
