Passion for Freedom: The Life of Maria Gomori

Sale price$20.95


Passion for Freedom is the inspirational autobiography of Maria Gomori, the world's foremost teacher of Satir family processes, who at the age of ninety-four continues to work tirelessly with people around the world. Her life encompasses the romance of her days at the Sorbonne in the 1930s, the terror of her escape from a Nazi death march, and her family's daring flight from Hungary in the face of the Soviet invasion of 1956. Her new life in Canada brought fresh challenges - a horrific car accident, the death of her beloved husband - as well as the joys of a growing family, establishing a pioneering career in social work and the Satir approach to family therapy, and learning and practicing alongside many of the leading figures of the human potential movement of the 70s and 80s. This new edition of Passion for Freedom includes the eventful years since its first publication in 2002, including an encounter with cancer, the flourishing of Satir work in Asia and North America, a journey to the Europe of Maria's youth, and the addition of three great-grandchildren to her family.
