Unburdening Souls at the Speed of Thought

Psychology, Christianity, and the Transforming Power of EMDR


Unburdening Souls at the Speed of Thought: Psychology, Christianity, and the Transforming Power of EMDR

Unburdening Souls at the Speed of Thought: Psychology, Christianity, and the Transforming Power of EMDR is about the transformative journey to wholeness that was modeled by Christ and is accelerated by a ground-breaking therapy known as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). You will see an emotionally scarred surfer recover from the ultimate loss, the tragic death of his son. You will learn how dreams and images gave subjects the courage to change careers and enrich their lives. And you will discover how a woman accessed a buried traumatic memory during a therapy session and gained an enduring sense of peace.


The process described in psychologist Dr. Andrew J. Dobo’s book occurs in six stages, which are mirrored by six moments Christ modeled in his Passion. Psychology and religion collide in the book’s incredible tales, which move from despair to hope, hate to love, and fear to contentment. This is a book that will give hope to those suffering mental anguish as they are exposed to a new map of the soul modeled by Christ and shared by psychology. It shows how survivors of trauma can heal and overcome negative beliefs about themselves. It’s for those who want to better understand the workings of the soul and for those who do not even imagine such a thing exists. And it will fascinate any reader interested in the power of the mind.

What experts are saying


Finally there is a book that explains EMDR from a psychological and spiritual perspective.  I recommend EMDR to many of my clients, and I believe the profound wisdom in Dr. Andrew Dobo’s book is required reading for anyone on a path of healing.”
Leslie McGuirk, author, illustrator, designer, workshop presenter, and Fortune 500 consultant


As both a student of Christian mysticism and an experienced EMDR therapist, I sing the praises of Andrew Dobo’s work. His practice exemplifies the beauty of fusion that I attempt to teach to my students. If you are an EMDR therapist working with clients who walk a Christianity-inspired path, ‘Unburdening Souls’ is essential reading. If, as a practitioner of EMDR or other trauma therapies, you are open to the workings of the mystical and the Divine in your work, please pick up this book. And finally, regardless of your spiritual tradition or your clinical beliefs, if you identify as open-minded and open to learning from all dimensions, please consider adding this book to your library.”
Dr. Jamie Marich, Ph.D., LPCC-S, LICDC-CS, EMDRIA-approved consultant and education provider and author of EMDR Made Simple


On one level, this is an amazing and beautiful book about recovery from extreme trauma and abuse using the powerful therapeutic container of EMDR.  But more deeply, it is about the transformational journey of individuation – the work of fulfilling the soul’s unique destiny in the face of daunting and even demonic forces opposed to that destiny. It is a story familiar from many great fairy tales and myths and it is brought to life with all its perils and triumphs in the stories that unfold in Dr. Andrew J. Dobo’s humble treatment room.”
John Whalen, sustainability consultant to Fortune 500 companies

Dr. Dobo discusses the book

What readers are saying

“Having experienced the power of EMDR personally, I really enjoyed the book and how the writer explains the 6 stages. I didn’t even realize I was going through them. I would recommend this book to anyone.”


“I highly recommend this book to anyone thinking about doing EMDR or anyone currently doing EMDR therapy!”


“So far, no book I’ve read in this harrowing journey comes even remotely close to describing what I’m feeling like this book.”


“I was determined to finish your book tonight!!! I could not put it down! You have brought me much peace about what I’m going through and there are no words to express my gratitude!! I had chill bumps during the whole read and tears during the last few pages! God is definitely working through you and the wonderful, brave souls you have met along the way!”


“It is quite obvious this was birthed out of a sacred journey you went through with God and with others. That is an irreplaceable gift, and the wisdom and beauty gleaned, is life changing and invaluable. How can you thank someone for helping you see you are reclaiming your very soul?”


“This narrative non-fiction book reads like fiction while it instructs. This is a wonderful book that everyone should read. It describes in simple terms how issues are born in the early part of our lives, then these experiences often stand in the way of our true path. Dr. Dobo explains how to gain insight and understanding of this process and how to change it with the powerful therapy known as EMDR. He noticed a six stage process, ironically each stage was modeled by Christ in his death and resurrection. You do not have to be a religious person to benefit from this book, but if you are it makes this journey more wondrous. Don’t miss this little gem of a book.”
