Dancing with your Dragon: Reviews
“Shaeri Richards has written a remarkable book and we are very pleased to recommend it to anyone who is engaged in personal growth work.
She has first of all provided us with a basic introduction to, and understanding of psycho-spiritual reality. She gives here a clear exposition of many of Jung’s basic ideas as well as her own integration of other of thought.Secondly she tells us her own story, which deals with learning to handle the way her mother betrayed her. Shaeri used the betrayal as fuel for her own transformational journey and the reader comes away much the better for it.The third gift she brings us is her own very original and creative journey that teaches us how to “dance with our dragon.” This refers to learning about the inner system of selves, energies and archetypes that are within each of us and also learning to live and work with them as though one was learning how to become a master dancer. This book comes from many years of personal and professional experience and it will speak to a large reading public. We congratulate her on her work.”

“Shaeri Richard’s book Dancing with your Dragon: The Art of Loving your Unlovable Self is brilliant deeply profound and yet easy to understand with many helpful images, stories and practices designed to support our understanding and experience of the paradox of our humanity and divinity.
Self-love is not something you can teach and yet Shaeri does an excellent job of providing the tools that will help you to discover how to truly “love yourself like you have never been loved before.” Self-love is an inside job and yet many have no idea where to begin. This book guides the way, the rest is up to you.”

“I remember once hearing that the secret to life is to accept the unacceptable with grace. Shaeri has shown how her own inner journey has led to a deep understanding and acceptance of what we are handed in life and ways to deal with it. This book offers many enlightened ways and methods to heal and love ourselves.

“Reading this book has changed my life. Since I began dancing with my dragon the dark drama that used to surround me has disappeared. I highly recommend it.”
Karyn Vass, Teacher
“As I read each chapter, I felt I was starting to think of new ways to be positive in myself. Although it is a book that challenges a person to come face-to-face with oneself in the mirror (which isn’t always easy to do) I found this book very accepting. In a world that isn’t very kind, I appreciated the comfort.”
Mary Hollan, Singer/Songwriter/Musician
“The greatest gift of “Dancing with your Dragon” is the simple understanding that “it’s ok to be ‘not ok’!” Self-Acceptance is the key and trust is the doorway into a whole new way of being. This book shows us the path.”

“Dancing with your Dragon” is brilliant, informative and sensitive. This is a forever on the shelf reference book for me. Many thanks for your dedication in sharing your “knowledge” and “love of life” with others.”
Jacki Palmer – Retail Shop Manager, retired
“As I read into this book, I found myself guided to the places deep within, the places where we access the power to transform our lives. Shaeri’s insights, exercises, and most importantly the story of her relationship with her mom,“ the venerated therapist” left me in awe of how she used compassion and self-responsibility to evolve the anger and hurt from the painful events of her life, and morph it unconditional love. If you need to learn to love yourself, this book can really help.”
Jimmy Allen – Mentor and Pioneer of the Future
“Dancing with your Dragon” is not a theory; it comes directly from Shaeri’s rich life experiences and she has obviously spent much time researching her subject. It is well written, clear and articulate, with a good balance of light-heartedness and humor. Thanks for making this available to everyone!”
Jyoti Rawlinson – Owner Sedona massage Therapy
