For over 25 years, Sven Erlandson has been a leader in the field of spirituality in America -- as it intersects sports, politics, religion, business, and relationships. He was the very first author to both name and delineate the 'spiritual but not religious' movement in America, long before the phrase entered the American vulgate and even longer before the movement hit critical mass; and is recognized in Wikipedia for that cutting-edge work.
His articles have been published in major newspapers, international journals, ezines, and magazines. Additionally, his books have been critically acclaimed as 'highly controversial', 'extremely cutting-edge', and more. Like his counseling and speaking, Sven's books have been challenging outdated ideas and radically changing lives for decades.
"Hey man, I don't know if you remember our sessions from last summer, but your book is the most intense book i have ever read, because the farther I get into it, the scarier it gets. But, its a damn good book and I'm telling everyone so."
- T. Gabel, 26, NYC, regarding I Steal Wives
Are you depressed, but don't know why? Or is it inexplicable anxiety that grips your gut?
Do you, over and over, sabotage yourself, your career, or your relationship?
Is your relationship falling apart and you're not sure what to do?
Do you have it all, but still feel unfulfilled or even miserable inside?
Is your 20-year old son or daughter unmotivated, causing you to feel ever more frustrated?
Does your mother or father continue, even well into your adulthood, to control or undermine your life?
If any of these sounds like you, we need to talk! That's the purpose of this book: a real conversation about what is causing the problems and unrest in your soul. But first, you must understand: One of the core truths of this book is that trying to change behaviors never changes behaviors, long term. Until there is a fundamental shift in the deep-down, core beliefs driving the behaviors, no changes will ever stick. Most importantly, the beliefs driving your life are neither visible to you nor were they ever chosen by you.
Your depression and anxiety are, at their root, the result of a life disconnected from your soul - your own true self, which has been waiting for decades, deep inside, to be rediscovered. In this book, I reconnect you to your true voice, free you from the fears that dog you, and give you the courage to finally experience true aliveness, lasting joy, and inner peace.
