Product Description

Published USA, 2013
Alan Fogel leads us on an informative journey to 'rediscover' our body's ability to feel and maintain awareness of our movements, sensations and emotions. This innovative book uncovers important components of our biological directive to improve quality of life and explores strategies to satisfy that directive by reconnecting with our bodily selves. With self-help exercises, case vignettes, neuroscience research and more, this interactive book provides a sophisticated yet down-to-earth perspective on what Fogel calls 'embodied self-awareness'.
