Toni Raiten-D'Antonio's book " Velvetine Principles" teaches "How to be Real"

I've been reading this excellent book and learning. Thought I'd share.
Reviewer Richard Morse
Book/Mark, Spring 2005

Toni Raiten-D'Antonio is a psychotherapist.  She uses a delightful combination of her own life experiences and the hidden lessons contained in Williams' The Velveteen Rabbit to present the reader with twelve simple rules that can be used to negotiate one's way through the "United States of Generica," and "Become real" in the process.  It sounds simple enough, and actually it is, but it requires those who want to take the journey to do some painful, such as to turn away from object oriented culture and to rejoice in the hidden value that life's suffering presents.

  1. Isn't it crazy how easy it was and how we used to be able to "be real" with our imaginary plush toys and a classic children's story? Great site - and thanks for the links.

  2. That really sounds worthwhile! X
