“As just one small but significant example of this stupid, insane belief system, and the effect it had on determining the course of human development - including the scapegoating of women, consider the myth of Adam and Eve.  'Poor' Adam, who was just being a man (that is, he just wants to get in Eve's pants) does what Eve wants him to and eats the apple.  So Eve gets the blame for Adam not having boundaries. Now is that stupid or what?  And you wondered where Codependence started." - Mother's Day

Today is my sobriety birthday.  I have been clean and sober since January 3rd,1984 - an amazing 32 years.  On this page of my website I talk about early recovery - and include quotes from different articles in which I talk about getting sober.

“Twelve step recovery is a program of empowerment.  Many people erroneously assume that the fact that first step involves admitting powerlessness means that 12 step recovery disempowers people. The Truth is exactly the opposite.

It was only when I admitted that I was powerless to control my drinking that I gained the power to stop drinking.  As long as I was trying to control my drinking out of ego and will power, I was powerless to stop drinking alcoholically.  It was when I opened up to getting help from a power greater than myself that I gained the power to transform my life.” - A Higher Power of my own understanding 2 - the beginning of empowerment

“It is extremely difficult to have a healthy relationship in a society that is founded on dysfunctional beliefs about the nature and purpose of being human.

January 7th, 2013:  Announcing the publication of Robert's newest ebook: The Law of Attraction - Misunderstood & Misinterpreted. This eBook is available now in Amazon Kindle format.

This ebook is the first of two that will be combined and published as a hard copy book in February. In this one I am talking about what I see as misinterpretations Attraction cover and misunderstandings in the way the Law of Attraction is being taught that actually feed into people's codependency.  Here is a quote from the ebook about why I wrote it.

"I am publishing this book because I believe that the way the Law of Attraction is being taught by most people who are teaching it today is not ultimately Loving.  I believe it is being taught in a way that makes many of the people hearing it feel ashamed;  in a way that causes people to focus on reaching a destination at the expense of being present in the now;  in a way that reinforces the delusion that there is something inherently wrong with being human, with human beings.  It is also being taught by most spiritual teachers in a way that discounts and devalues emotions and emotional healing."

I address the emotional component in the second ebook - The Metaphysics of Emotions - which could be done this month but more likely February.

December 30th, 2012:
  Announcing that a new audio version of Codependence The Dance of Wounded Souls A Cosmic Perspective of Codependence and the Human Condition is now available on audible.com

This is a literal audio book with another narrator - not the audio that I did myself which was slightly abridged.  I think that the narrator did a good job - but of course it doesn't have the passion and the points of emphasis that the one I did has.  As one person's feedback stated:

"The audio version is absolutely a mind-blowing audio spiritual experience! You rock, man!! It's one thing to read the articles on the clinically electric computer screen and completely another level of involvement hearing the man himself utter his own words of wisdom and spiritual alchemy. One can tell that you aren't just mumbling through a book you've written; while listening it becomes certain that the message truly is your spiritual truth and not just some neatly packaged intellectual mind job disguising itself in spiritual language. An enormous THANK YOU for sharing your story and perspective for all the world to see, I truly appreciate it, man!"  

The version that I did is for sale right now as an MP3 download.

February 3, 2009 New & news:  I just updated the copyright notice on 27 of my Update Newsletter pages - up through June 2003.  I also removed the code that blocked search engines from indexing those pages.  I had blocked them at the time because there was some very personal processing I was doing in some of those Newsletters.  There is some valuable sharing that I do in many of them that you might want to check out - especially: October 2000 + Part 2;  May 2001 + 3 newsletter pages;  January 2002 + 2 newsletter pages;  August 2002:   November 2002:   June 2003 + 2 newsletter pages. All of the Updates are listed at the bottom of the site index page and anyone who wanted to trace the evolution of this site - as well as my personal recovery process over those years - would find reading them through interesting and valuable.

January 4, 2009 New & news:  a new introduction to the Alcoholism and Twelve Step Recovery index page, a link to a radio interview I did on Dec. 30th, and a new picture of us at a Christmas party below.

This is from someone who was scheduled to come to my workshop in Las Gatos in December 2015 and couldn't attend because of food poisoning.  She was able to come to my workshop in Gilroy in April and bring her father with her.
"I also wanted to share the undeniable divine intervention regarding this workshop. I first read Co-dependence, The Dance of Wounded Souls about ten years ago and it literally ignited the spark of life within me and brought my fathers alcoholism out from under the rug of denial. It was the catalyst for embarking upon the transformational journey and spiritual awakening leading me to my soul's purpose of becoming a therapist. I finally broke the silence surrounding my father's alcoholism and he has been sober for seven years. I dreamed of being able to have us attend one of your workshops but knew he wasn't at that point in his recovery and doubted he ever would be.

I toyed with the idea of asking him but wasn't sure and then received your email asking me if I wanted to bring someone. I knew this was absolutely divine intervention and I asked him if he would like to come with me. After some thought and reading about your work, he decided he would like to come with me! I know it will be a profound healing experience and thank you for making it possible. Guess that explains where the food poisoning came from."

Comments on Facebook post of my book Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls
“Awesome book.”
“This book is worth STUDYING very slowly to absorb its meanings. Blew me away!”
“This book gave me all the answers i needed to turn my life around....literally saved me from destroying me....enjoy”
“I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Have listened to the tapes daily till they wore out!!”
“This book was LIFE CHANGING and LIFE SAVING for me!”
“This book is a total GAME CHANGER! Love it!”
“Wonderful book”

"I have listened to the book 3  times while driving.  I want to  listen where I can take notes especially for the information in the 3rd section.  It is amazing.  You are truly gifted.  I have read (back in the day) tons of coda literature and went to 2 and 3 meetings a week.  Nothing ever came close to the way you have taken the coda saga, put the rocks in a blender and poured out out the dust so people (like me) can finally really get it.  I am looking forward to listening to the workshop.  Thank you. Thank you " (MP3 Downloads)

"I've bought the audio tapes, listened over the three parts more than three times and that was a year ago. I don't know if then I wasn't ready for what was to come but... Right now I'm in so much joy because I'm actually enjoying this beautiful process. I'm just so happy because I know that it's working for me. I can FEEL it. I'm saying thank you. X100 thank you so much. If you will excuse me now, I have more wounds to uncover and more ME to discover. Thank you!!!!!"

"Love your insights and wisdom keep up the great work!  Here in Toronto your book was recomended as a course book for addictions counselling by one of the profs."

"I read your 1st book many years ago..it gave me a great foundation..my healing path has involved working with my "inner children" they each have a name and represent an age group..I have re-parented them, I've connected them to Divine love..and I love that you say no matter how much work we do there are still buttons and sore points sometimes but can work thru them much faster! Thanks!!"

"Hi Robert, I've just finished reading your book and I have to tell you, it is absolutely brilliant and I have read so many books, but yours just struck a chord with me, ongoing to read it again"

"Love your work Robert. I completed your workbook over the holidays...spectacular!  It has really helped me in my personal growth. Keep going strong!"

"I purchased your Co-Dependence book "The Dance of Wounded Souls"... This is such an amazing book that will help millions of people that will pick it up and read it."

"This author and man is a Blessing in my life. His books and his sharing has been extremely helpful to all of us who take advantage by being connected to him on FB Facebook ... There is so much knowledge to learn to change the things we do who we are and the way we perceived our responses with reading his posts , on his website, as well as his books.... check out todays post from a past post. I can say it is one of those post that I know say so much to help all of us become better Human beings."

"Sure do appreciate your Emailed articles, & this Facebook page! You got some REALLY remarkable, HELPFUL ("practical"!) insights, & you are very gifted at expressing them! As I'm able, I'm gonna start "advertising" your Facebook page, as well as your website, to all the folks WHO ARE looking for MORE answers than "JUST not taking a drink/drug", here in Chattanooga, TN.!! (Am going to one of our CoDA mtgs, here in town, tonight... But I also got a "closed" CoDA Facebook group, that has quite a few (for Chattanooga) people in AA/NA recovery, that are ALSO INTERESTED in CoDA recovery!!! So, I'm glad I remembered your Facebook page, to share this with them!"

"Happy day, oh spiritual brother. Thank you for always leading the way, fearlessly, with such deep impact. The many who have experienced the blessings of your teaching, are forever changed. Live deep, live long."

"I recently read your book dance of the wounded soul it helped me so much I loved it!!"

"I just wanted to say thanks for writing your book 'dance of the wounded souls'. This book is just talking directly to me and is helping me so much every time i read it. It should be up there with the power of now and other similar books (maybe it is).  Anyway no need to reply as am sure you are very busy. Just wanted to express my gratitude"

"Thank you! I hope I will have the honor of meeting you in person one day! You truly are one of the reason I find my connection to Spirit once again! Much love."

"This book is worth its weight in gold"

"I want to thank you for the article on codependency I have just read on your website. It is so generous of you to put it out there and it had given me hope in my dealing with my subtly but exceedingly manipulative spouse....I wish you much success and I'm off to continue reading!"

I am going through the workbook looking at my own wounds, and also incorporating your thoughts and suggestions in helping my own clients. I am grateful for your vulnerability, courage, and willingness to act as a servant of the Universe by sharing what you have learned. Thank you."

"Hi Robert,  Thank you so much for helping me understand co dependency.  I have found it a difficult concept to grasp. My father was the alcoholic.  I have been going to Alanon for years which has  transformed my life.  I live in New Zealand.  If I was closer I would love to go to your workshops.  I cry when I read your work. It makes so much sense."

"I just wanted to express my gratitude for your work, as it has helped me immensely in the healing process. Thank you kindly for sharing all the insights and wisdom!"

"I  truly admire your insight!! Thank you so much for all of your articles. They have been such a blessing to me and my recovery."

"I want to share with you that your book and website writings gave me great comfort and courage during my graduate studies in counseling from 2007-2009.

Latest Phone Counseling Feedback (5-2-15) 

"Dearest Robert, do you remember me? We worked together in 2000? Its 15 years later and I am so much deeper into my relationship with my authentic self and my spiritual guidance. (always a journey). I am more of me now in the world. I thank you for being my first "spiritually based counselor". I look forward to our connection here. I hope you are well and thriving. Joy 2 U!"

"Wow I am so glad you remember me. I benefitted so much from the doorways you opened for me. Infact it feels like at least one of my inner children wants to leap out and say hi. anyway I was able to heal, love and integrate with a lot of my inner children over the years. and also help others like my husband and friends understand their pain from this perspective. Loving, healing, thriving are the words which come up. I really like your new website. I am so glad your healing offerings have resonated with so many people.""

"Robert, I am grateful for the work we are doing, because I know now I that I can cry for that little girl, and have been for quite some time now (even before I was conscious of it). And I know my heart is healing, my shame is being released, and my pain is subsiding because I am offering her the love and attention she wanted and needed but didn't receive. It's not always easy, but it is well worth my time and effort to help my little girl to heal. Thank you for supporting me through this process.  With deep and sincere gratitude"

You are the first therapist that is really helping me and a HUGE blessing in my life...THANK YOU!!!"

“Our sessions have been key in healing my broken heart and relationship with self. I enjoy our time immensely and your insights have given me wings to live.”Thank you for your words. I find myself looking forward to our conversations with happy anticipation knowing that I will encounter acceptance, insight and clarity.

Words cannot describe the importance of our time together.  it’s like I’ve been trapped in a dark, sad, internal dungeon and you, your teachings, and interaction with me have given me hope, answers, freedom, and lasting feelings of joy, happiness, and hope that I have not known before.  I must tell the world that great therapists are the real knights in shining armour not unrecovered codependents who wield guns and engage in physical combat like on television and the movies. :)"

"Thank you Robert. I am so very grateful for you and all the work you share and offer. We did phone sessions almost 5 years ago when my mother passed and I keep your words and guidance dear. My maternal grandmother just passed this week , so I look once to your "voice" and holding presence. God bless"

"Your books give me great hope and enlightenment.  They speak to me because our phone calls have prepared me to receive their messages of truth."

"There are certain Teachers in this Life that are Masterful Guides because they were both born with a gift and also have direct experiential Knowing based on their personal path. I met Robert Burney 10 years ago when I finally ready to look at my life and the affects of codependency and addiction in my family. That one event opened the doors for me and gave me permission to begin having much more compassion and awareness for myself and eventually for those around me.  I strongly encourage you to align with Robert at his intensives or one-one-one. He is a gift and I am grateful to have met him so many years ago.""
