: : What does 'a tremendously liberating time' mean?
: This is a fairly straight-forward use of all these words - a greatly freeing period. When the therapist coached Martha out of her fears, it was a tremendously liberating time for her as she could leave her house for the first time in years.
The phrase can also be applied to an era. For some people, the sixties (1960's) were a liberating time, freeing them, perhaps, from the constrictions of useless inhibitions.
