    Laurie Beth Jones & Dr. Andrew Dobo "Unburdening Souls at the Speed of Thought"

    in Spirituality

    “Unburdening Souls at the Speed of Thought” is about the transformative journey to wholeness that was modeled by Christ and is accelerated by a ground-breaking therapy known as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).


    The process described in psychologist Dr. Andrew J. Dobo’s book occurs in six stages, which are mirrored by six moments Christ modeled in his Passion. Psychology and religion collide in the book’s incredible tales, which move from despair to hope, hate to love, and fear to contentment. This is a book that will give hope to those suffering mental anguish as they are exposed to a new map of the soul modeled by Christ and shared by psychology. It shows how survivors of trauma can heal and overcome negative beliefs about themselves. It’s for those who want to better understand the workings of the soul and for those who do not even imagine such a thing exists. And it will fascinate any reader interested in the power of the mind.

    Dr. Andrew Dobo was first trained in the use of EMDR more than 14 years ago. He has treated hundreds of patients and participated in literally thousands of EMDR sessions in his private psychology practice in Sebastian, Florida. He is a licensed psychologist in Florida.

    An Interview with Laurie Beth Jones about her new book: The Contessa Chronicles

    in Spirituality

    This week Laurie Beth is interviewed about her new book, "The Contessa Chronicles". While this is Laurie's latest book to be released, it is one that she has carried in her heart for many years.  It springs from pondering the many scriptures that don’t resonate with modern times and understanding. From questions that are raised and then left unanswered.  As a nun once asked in Berkeley, “Is God really just an old man, a young man, and a bird?”  Why are women so easily erased and condemned in scripture? Why are the Wisdom passages so overlooked?  Why is the Holy Spirit, presented as a feminine noun in Hebrew, so quickly reassigned a new gender in subsequent translations, leading to a male dominated culture in religion that belies common sense, as well as demographics?


    Meanwhile, where’s the fun?  The joy?  The vibrancy that exists in life and yet seems almost non existent in the stories we are told about God?


    Ultimately, Laurie Beth has come to believe two major things. One is that the Bible is a Love Story, largely of unrequited love.  Two. That Jesus was a family man in the very largest sense.  He spoke constantly about the love he had for his father. He called us his brothers and sisters. With his dying breath he asked that his mother be loved and cared for after he was gone. He invited us to come home with him, and feast at the banquet table. He said he would send the Holy Spirit to finish the work he started.


    And even in Revelations, “The Spirit and the Bride say ‘Come.’”  The very real possibility of a wedding exists, even though Armageddon has gotten a lot more air time.


    And so we present to you, The Contessa Chronicles.  A new imagining of how it might have been, and maybe even, really is, if we are open to tasting some new wine, and are willing to saddle up our own horses for the ride.
