"Codependence deals with the core issues of the human dilemma. Codependence has grown out of the cause from which all symptoms arise. That cause is Spiritual dis-ease: not being at ease, at one with Spiritual Self."

"We are not sinful, shameful human creatures who have to somehow earn Spirituality. We are Spiritual Beings having a human experience."  -   Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls by Robert Burney

Robert Burney is a codependence counselor, inner child healing pioneer, Spiritual teacher, and the author of a Joyously inspirational book of Mystical Spirituality - Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls.  He has pioneered innovative, powerful, life-changing tools and techniques for inner child/emotional healing & Spiritual integration.  On the Joy2MeU (Joy2MeU Home) web site he shares long excerpts from his book, columns & articles he has written, and material from his next two books. 

The following are Joy2MeU recommended links.

There is a ton of information out there, and some sites have links to hundreds of other sites.  I am going to try to keep this page to a reasonable size and am only adding a handful of links every 3 months or so now (now about every 6 months - RB 11/12/07 - I just added some for the first time in over two years.)  I recommend these sites because I believe they have value - and in some case because they offer interesting alternative perspectives.  I do not necessarily endorse or agree with the views they express.  I tend to avoid highly commercialized sites and those with such high tech graphics that are not suited for dial up connections. I add only a small percentage of the sites which request link exchanges with me, and often add sites that do not link to mine - in an attempt to provide a diverse, eclectic collection of interesting resources. 

(All of the links to external sites open in a new browser window so that you can explore and when you collapse the window you will be back at this page.) 

New Links*added 12-1-2013*
I have added another set of interesting, intriguing and eclectic links - I recommend these sites because I believe they have value - and in some case because they offer interesting alternative perspectives.  I do not necessarily endorse or agree with the views they express.

I have been reading Rob Brezsny's Astrology insights for some years as it appears in the local free alternative Newspapers in areas I have lived.  His messages are interesting and quite out of the norm - sometimes baffling, often inspirational and with an uncanny ability to convey a message I need to hear at that moment on my spiritual path.  I have had one or more of his weekly messages taped to my wall or computer for years.  In wanting to share his latest one with a friend who is a fellow Leo, I discovered his web site and decided to add a link to it here.

Here is a special site which combines 5 worthy causes - and where it is possible to click on a link or all 5 separately and money is donated to the cause you click.  The Hunger Site, Animal Rescue Site,  Rainforest site, Child Health Site, or Breast Cancer Site.

I usually don't add links to sites that promote just a single author's work (or artist or whatever) unless they offer a lot of other resources.  I have decided this time to add a few that have contacted me - two authors, a poet, an artist, a site about healing songs, and a free greeting card site:  Nerd Gerl's Naked Angel ArtBarbara Sinor, Ph.D. author of "An Inspirational Guide for the Recovering Soul" and "Gifts from the Child Within";  and 123Greetings lets you send free greetings all across the world.

A great cause here: "A cardboard box is saving the lives of thousands of people in Africa. It’s called Solar Cooker, and it is pure ingenuity. The cookers have made a huge difference—and not just because they are a way to heat food. Without them, refugee women must go outside the camp to gather firewood. But to leave camp is to gamble with death."

Someone strongly recommended the Shalom Process which offers retreats that looks pretty interesting. "Shalom Mountain Retreat and Study Center was established in the Catskill Mountains one hundred miles northwest of New York City. It was founded as a 'hope structure', calling people to live passionately and with compassion in the world."
