Affirming Feelings

Here is a book to stimulate careful thinking about the basics of emotional functioning and the power for positive change we can all use in our emotional life.

The author draws on the latest neuroimmunological research to focus on the ways we can understand our emotional experience to meet the demand of everyday living.

The book separates feeling from thinking, and discusses the relationship of the brain and emotions mediated by the body's communication system.

It describes the importance of emotional well being for physical health and ways in which we can use the power of our emotions to support emotional and spiritual well being.

Here is a down-to-earth discussion of how to harness the power of feelings, even though the mechanisms by which emotions function are still largely a mystery.
