John Bradshaw discusses an ancient tradition of spirituality that has been lost to the modern world. This spirituality is rooted in natural shame the innate effect that lets us know that we are limited, that we need help and that we are not God. Natural shame comes close to defining what it means to be human.
Bradshaw believes the present spiritual crisis has been precipitated by certain culturally accepted norms of perfection. These norms create toxic shame; as imperfect, paradoxical beings, we can never measure up to these norms of perfectionism. Bradshaw sees hope in the 12-Step movement, which has revived an ancient spirituality of imperfection. Using a vast array of philosophical and theological resources, Bradshaw weaves a highly practical spirituality to certainly bring hope to the listener.
