Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls
"An Audio Spiritual Experience"
This audio version of Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls, spoken by the author Robert Burney is available for the first time as a cross-platform PWA (Progressive Web App), well suited for Apple, Android and Windows mobile and desktop devices.
"I have devoured your website quite thoroughly in little over a year, that I've been on the strenuous but, oh, so rewarding path of recovery. The book that has had such an impact on me and had created such shivering resonance in my Soul. 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!"
This audio recording was made in a bedroom of a house I was renting in Taos, New Mexico in 1995. We stacked mattresses against the walls to soundproof the room. A musician friend produced it for me - and I spent many hours in a recording studio helping to edit it. It was originally an audio tape and then a CD. It was then digitally remastered and available as an audio download. It was in November 2022 that it became available as an app. And I was very glad that the Author's Foreword from the book was added at this time. I did not record it in 1995. Below is a story that really touched me about the effect of the tapes on one couple in particular - and below that are some other testimonials about the impact the recording has had on people. It is Truly An Audio Spiritual Experience. - Robert Burney 2/3/23
Some Testimonial for An Audio Spiritual Experience
In November 2022, when I posted an announcement about the new app of my recording of The Dance of Wounded Souls. It reminded me of this story about the impact that recording had in one specific situation that I refer to in this article - which was taken from one of my Update Newsletters - where I am talking about Goddess Strokes.
“The person I had never met, was a man who passed on a couple of years ago. The woman who had been married to him came to my workshop. I knew her because she contacted me several years ago to get a copy of the audio tape set of my book – and had later come to a workshop or two. It has probably been a year or so since I had seen her last. She made a point of telling me several times something that she had told me previously – something that obviously meant a great deal to her.
What she wanted to reiterate to me, was how important my tapes had been to her husband while he was dying. She had bought the tapes for him because he had a terminal illness. She told me again how important those tapes were to him, and how he had listened to them over and over again in the last months of his life. She said they were the only thing he wanted to listen to – and again expressed her gratitude to me for how much my words had helped her husband find peace and serenity while he was in the process of dying.
What a gift! What an affirmation! What Joy to be able to be of that kind of service to another human being and his Loved ones.
She had told me this previously, as I mentioned – and in many ways I had felt the same reaction to her words as I did on Sunday. I was profoundly grateful for the gift of such positively affirming feedback. I felt a deep and awesome humility for the gift I have been given of being able to be a channel of Truth and an instrument of Love that can so profoundly touch the lives of other human beings. I felt a great pride in the fact that I have been willing to do the work and follow my path in such a way as to be available for this kind of service. I also felt a great deal of Joy.
My reaction to her gratitude was also different in some interesting and subtle ways. Perhaps because of my growth over the last few years, or maybe because of the intensity and passion with which she conveyed her gratitude, I was conscious in a whole new way, on a much deeper level, of the gift those tapes had been to her.
Watching a Loved one go through any intense experience – and dying certainly qualifies as an intense experience – can in many ways be harder for the one who is observing, than for the person actually going through the experience. I had not really been fully conscious previously, of how great a gift it must have been for her to have her husband accept and relax into his dying process. How that must have helped her to flow with the process with a degree of serenity and peace. I had always previously accepted that she was telling me what a gift my tapes were to her husband – I had never been fully conscious of what she was saying about what a gift they were to her.” - “Goddess Strokes”
"I stumbled upon your website by chance some years ago. I ordered the book and then the tapes. I listened to the tapes so many times that your voice put me to sleep night after night after night. I wore the tapes out. Your work is remarkable and can help many people if they were aware of it."
"We've listened and loved your audio version, and now want the book to go along with it. We are both very active AA members."
"It is not unusual for me to drive 200 to 400 miles a day. Needless-to-say, I listened to your audio version in 2 days. What a wonderful experience!!!!"
"I listen to your audio version every morning and evening, as I take the NYC subways to and from work. It is helping to change my life immensely. God bless you for putting out this beautiful, so desperately-needed work."
"WOW!!! Your book and tapes arrived, and I literally can not stop listening to them, as I drive my car, and lay down to rest. It has struck as Truth with me, and just affirms all that I have come to accept as my path, in the program of Alcoholics Anonymous. I am sure you are used to receiving emails of this nature, but I would me amiss if I did not thank you for your words. They have assisted in transforming me to another level of living. I was yearning for a boost in my program, and this was it. I work with many young women and this has given me new information that I feel is most helpful, for many. Thank you for sharing."
"I received your audio version a couple of days ago, and I am remembering my Truth in listening to your words. The audio is invaluable to me."
"I am recently blessed by the high vibration and accuracy of your audio version."
"Thank you Robert. I am in receipt of your audio version. They are in alignment with my beliefs and a wonderful tool for assisting in reprogramming negative patterns. You are extremely articulate here and I will recommend your audio/book to my clients and Yoga students."
"A friend of mind shared the her audio version with me. There was so many words and ideas that resonated with me that I decided to have my own copy plus the book so I can go at my own pace to digest all the concepts that validate what I have been thinking for many years. You have a gifted way of presenting that material. Thank-you for sharing your gift with those of us who need to hear the message."
