Highly recommended!--Christopher Germer, Ph.D., Lecturer on Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, author of The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion, co-editor of Mindfulness and Psychotherapy Inna Khazan brilliantly integrates two approaches, mindfulness, and biofeedback. A truly readable book--anchored in science--that explains how biofeedback enhances the self-regulation of the body and how mindfulness is the cognitive emotional approach for acceptance and resilience. This combined approach anchors the concept that mind/emotions/body are one. It is skills NOT pills. This is a MUST book for students, therapists, and anyone interested in reducing symptoms, optimizing health, and promoting resilience. It provides pragmatic practices that anyone can do at home or at work to increase well-being; since health is the integrating of learned health-promoting skills into daily life.--Erik Peper, Ph.D., Professor at San Francisco State University, author of Biofeedback Master-An Experiential Teaching and Self-Training Manual and Fighting Cancer, produces the blog www.peperperspecti Dr. Khazan provides an intuitive step-by-step guide for building resilience and emotional flexibility.
